If you were wondering what the next Rogue One: A Star Wars Story collectible was going to be, then look no further. A Bistan Mini Bust is coming from Gentle Giant Studios soon! The new bust sculpted by the fantastic Keith Kopinski, is 1/6 scale, and will set you back about $120 (I can remember when these were only $40!).
The alien Bistan is a lakaru that joined the galactic rebellion after the Empire tracked the rebellion to his home planet. As a result of that conflict he enlisted as a soldier for the Alliance. In the Battle of Scarif, Bistan was a door-gunner on an Alliance U-Wing fighter. Fans fell in love with his maniacal enthusiasm for his job in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. His small, but important role in the operation to procure the Death Star plans is featured with the next 1:6th scale mini-bust from Gentle Giant LTD. Using actual scan data from the real, screen-used costume and weapon, Bistan was digitally sculpted by the craftsmen at Gentle Giant ltd to ensure precision, character and the correct execution down to the last buckle and seal on his spacesuit. In addition, the Bistan mini-bust features his deep set, soulful eyes, his accurate laser rifle and a variety of (faux) fur highlights (no actual space monkeys were harmed in the making of this bust) to ensure the most authentic replication of this unique character. This Rogue One: A Star Wars Story limited edition 1:6 scale collectible is hand numbered and comes packed with a matching Gentle Giant ltd. certificate of authenticity.
