Official Photos of the Gentle Giant Early Bird 4-Pack Jumbo Set

Published

on

For those old enough to remember Kenner’s classic Early Bird 4-pack set, this new Early Bird 4-Pack Jumbo Set from Gentle Giant might be an awesome thing to own!  Gentle Giant just released official images of their upcoming set, which features jumbo versions of the classic Kenner figures Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, R2-D2, and Chewbacca.

The figures come in a replica (only jumbo sized) of the Kenner set.  This one will set you back about $279.00 for a Q4 2017 release date.  Check out the official images and solicitation information below!

40 years ago a generation of kids saw a movie that changed their lives. When they left the theater and went to the store to find action figures from their favorite new movie they did not exist. When the holidays rolled around and the kids wanted to find their favorite heroes, villains and droids under the tree, none could be found. The toy makers solution to this problem was “The Star Wars Early Bird Kit.” Parents, desperate for anything Star Wars to wrap for their kids, were sold a large cardboard envelope that had a fold out stand, some stickers, trading cards and a promise that WHEN the figures were made, they would be the first kids to receive them. Gentle Giant Ltd pays tribute to that classic Star Wars story 40 years later with the Star Wars JUMBO Early Bird 4-pack. This 4 pack of action figure is a great jumping on point to the Jumbo line for new collectors as well as bringing back some earlier, harder to find figures for current Jumbo connoisseurs. The Early Bird Jumbo figure 4-pack will come in a retro box mimicking the original Early Bird envelope, inside will be the familiar white mailer tray with Luke Skywalker (with his double telescoping lightsaber. The first DT saber in the Jumbo line!), Princess Leia (with white vinyl cape and blue blaster) Chewbacca (with greenish Early Bird crossbow blaster) and R2-D2 (with clicking head). Also included in the set will be larger reproductions of the stickers and a large foldout, replica display stand that will hold the “original 12” figures along with the perforated cards attached to the front. Gentle Giant Ltd’s Jumbo line. Just like you remember, ONLY BIGGER!

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 Reveals Star Wars Boba Fett Collector’s Gallery Statue

Published

on

The most notorious bounty hunter in the galaxy joins Gentle Giant Ltd.’s 1:8th scale Collector’s Gallery statue line. Arguably, one of the most popular Star Wars characters in the Star Wars saga, Boba Fett exudes “dangerous and cool” in this new statue in the Collector’s Gallery collection. Every dent in his armor tells a story, every chip in his paint is another victory for this ruthless hunter.

Clad in his Mandalorian, Empire Strikes Back era armor with his rifle and his blaster, here Fett is seen standing casually on top of his most recent prize, a Wampa skull. The fearsome Boba Fett awaits his next bounty to collect, and he always gets his mark with NO DISINTEGRATIONS!

Boba Fett is the fifth statue in our new 1:8th Collector’s Gallery line, and fourth in our Bounty Hunter series, celebrating over 40 years of the Star Wars universe. Each limited edition Boba Fett statue is hand-painted and piece is cast in high quality poly-resin with crisp details such as his range finder, rocket pack, and actual braided Wookie scalps.* This statue also comes individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity. Boba Fett is the perfect centerpiece to your bounty hunter statue collection.

*No actual Wookies were harmed in the making of this statue.

This is the fourth statue in the line to feature one of the classic bounty hunter’s from The Empire Strikes Back. You can currently pre-order the previous two from our friends at Entertainment Earth!

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!
