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.
