Gentle Giant

Continuing our coverage of Star Wars Day news, comes information from Gentle Giant concerning new Star Wars product offerings!  The company has revealed three new items, some of which we showed you during our Star Wars Celebration coverage.  The three new item announcements include a new Shoretrooper statue, a Princess Leia Organa Mini-Bust, and an IG-88 statue.

Check out the information including images below.

Shoretrooper Collector’s Gallery Statue

From Rogue One: A Star Wars Story; come the Empire’s Shoretoopers. Armored soldiers who patrol the beaches of the planet Scarif, the secret location of the imperial army and its Death Star construction facility. These well-trained, specialist Troopers are at the ready to defend against the always imminent Rebel incursions. This Shoretrooper captain is armed with a heavy blaster and is depicted standing on the shores of Scarif, posed to take on the rebel insurgents. Sculpted digitally to ensure precision form and character correct accuracy. Each detailed bust is cast in durable, stone-like, poly-urethane material that is cold to the touch. Featuring a heavy blaster-rifle, sculpted hip pouches and gear. Every trooper is hand painted with correct rank and insignia applications with battle worn, weathered details. Each limited edition, hand-painted, polyresin classic bust comes individually numbered and is paired with a matching certificate of authenticity.

 

IG-88 Collector’s Gallery Statue

The fearsome assassin droid IG-88 was a rival to Boba Fett and was an imposing presence when he arrived on the Executor, answering Darth Vader’s call for ruthless bounty hunters. Far more terrifying than battle droids were the assassin droids, who were independently programmed mechanical killers that roamed the galaxy and had no masters. IG-88’s battered, chrome, war droid exterior suggests a richer, more violent history than we were able to glimpse in The Empire Strikes Back. The artists a Gentle Giant take you on a journey to see IG-88 in his prime and on the hunt with his cold, mechanical stare fixed on his prey. With his guns drawn, IG-88 won’t be stopped until his has his target dead or alive! IG-88 is the second statue in our new 1:8th Collector’s Gallery line, celebrating 40 years of the Star Wars universe. Each limited edition, hand-painted piece is cast in high quality polyresin with crisp details. This statue also comes individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity.

 

Leia Hero of Yavin Mini-Bust

In the triumphant scene at the end of Star Wars: A New Hope, we see Princess Leia decorating Luke Skywalker and Han Solo with the Medal of Yavin, for their gallant effort that resulted in the destruction of the Imperial Death Star! Our previous releases include both Han Solo and Luke Skywalker. Now we complete the trilogy with the royal presenter herself, Princess Leia Organa of Alderan. This amazing mini bust illustrates the pride that Leia shows at the end of the film as she knows the Death Star has been destroyed and no other planets will face the same fate as her home world. She stands proudly on the stage with her fellow heroes of the Rebellion. This mini bust was digitally sculpted by our master artisans, using actual archival footage and designs. Each bust is rendered using the highest quality polystone, and is hand painted to exacting detail. All of the pieces in this series are individually numbered and paired with a matching certificate of authenticity.

A Star Wars fan since 1978, he has a passion for all things Star Wars and wonders why May the 4th is not a national holiday. He lives in the wastelands of middle Georgia with his wife, two girls, and two dogs.

Gentle Giant’s Zuckuss Collector’s Gallery Statue is up for Pre-Order

Published

on

Zuckuss is the Gand bounty hunter that teamed up with 4-LOM to hunt Han Solo and collect the bounty for the Empire and as well as Jabba the Hutt. Zuckuss is sometimes known as “The Uncanny One” in the underground world of bounty hunters because of his tracking skills. He has an innate Force-sensitivity and has developed his skills after years of being a findsman. One way or another he always gets his mark.

The artists a Gentle Giant take you on a journey to see the moments just following the events of the death of Jabba, we find Zuckuss on Tattoine, at his feet, a chain left by Jabba’s escaped prize. Zuckuss is still on the hunt, reading the clues, catching the trail with his GRS-1 Snare Rifle in hand. Where Zuckuss goes, can 4-LOM be far behind?

Zuckuss is the fourth statue in our new 1:8th Collector’s Gallery line (and 3rd in our Bounty Hunters line), celebrating 40 years of the Star Wars universe. Each limited edition, hand-painted piece is cast in high quality polyresin with crisp details. This statue also comes individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity.

Zuckuss will set you back $159.00 and will be available Q2 of this year. You can pre-order directly from Gentle Giant’s website. Check out the gallery of official photos below!

Bib Fortuna Bust by Gentle Giant

Published

on

Gentle Giant has announced a new Bib Fortuna bust coming soon! The new mini-bust will be exclusively available on the Gentle Giant Store. Currently it is only available to Premier Guild Members, but if any remain available by Friday, December 15th, the pre-orders will be opened to the general public. Check out even more information, including images, below…

It is unknown how long the Twi’lek known as Bib Fortuna has served as the majordomo to the mighty gangster Jabba the Hutt, but we know that his service dates back at least to the Boonta Eve Classic pod race, won by the young, unknown competitor Anakin Skywalker. The pasty-faced right-hand-man is still in Jabba’s service several decades later when the son of Anakin Skywalker returns to Tattooine as a Jedi and seeks to bargain with Jabba for the life of his friend. It is during that encounter that Jabba learns that Bib Fortuna is susceptible to “Jedi Mind Tricks.” Fortuna followed the rules of protocol in the Hutt’s court (such as they were), and spoke only in Huttese, though he understood other tongues. The darkly robed attendant often hovered near Jabba’s ear, offering advice and feeding information to his master.

This 1:6 scale Bib Fortuna mini bust is painstakingly designed, modeled and prototyped using top of the line 3D technology so that no detail is missed. Each collectible mini bust is hand-cast, hand-painted and hand-numbered with a limited edition certificate of authenticity.

The Bib Fortuna mini bust will be limed to only 750 pieces.
