Gentle Giant Maz Kanata Bust

Sometimes it’s fun to look at the original sculpts of some of your favorite Star Wars collectibles.  It gives you an idea of what goes into making these things that we as collectors hold dear.  Recently the sculptor of the Gentle Giant Maz Kanata Bust, Keith Kopinski, released his digital sculpt photos for the piece.

As you can see in the gallery below, he also included the Premium Guild version with Maz holding Anakin’s lightsaber.  Gentle Giant gave Keith 3 weeks to go from concept to fully detailed original sculpt, and as always Kopinski finished up a few days before the deadline.

So take a few minutes to pour over the fantastic detail and eye for realism in the 3D digital sculpt photos below!

I sculpted this bust for the fine folks at Gentle Giant for their Star Wars line. I got the okay to share these. I hope you all like her. Art Direction by the always eagle-eyed Aaron White.

The mysterious pirate queen Maz Kanata has been part of the galactic smuggling scene for hundreds of years. Hundreds of years before the rise of the First Order, Maz had been already travelling the galaxy while understanding her own sensitivity to The Force. Gentle Giant LTD is proud to present the Star Wars Maz Kanata Mini Bust! This amazingly detailed mini bust has been digitally sculpted using top of the line 3D software, prototyped using 3D Systems industrial 3D printers. The final product is hand cast in polystone, and painstakingly hand painted so that no detail from Star Wars: The Force Awakens is missed. Ages 14 and up.

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.
