The Walking Dead - The Governor Mini Bust

 

Season Three of The Walking Dead reminds us that Walkers aren’t the only to be feared in this terrible new age. Phillip Blake, known as “The Governor” to his followers, rules a camp of survivors at Woodbury prison with an iron fist. Considered to be a “Jim Jones-type” by those who know of him, there is very little reason to trust this charismatic, narcissistic and clearly disturbed leader.

As a special bonus for ordering direct from Gentle Giant Ltd., enjoy deluxe accessories including an extra interchangeable head and removable eye patch!

Bilbo Baggins Mini Bust

 

Bilbo Baggins was your typical run-of-the-mill middle-aged Hobbit. He enjoyed his five meals a day (plus snacks), quality pipe weed and his nice, quiet existence. Everything was perfect. Until, that is, there was a knock at the door… Thrust against his will into a brand new world full of adventure, excitement and danger, Bilbo is forced to rise to the occasion as he faces death, dismemberment and devouring at the hands of goblins, orcs and the Great Dragon, Smaug. Little does Bilbo know, but the results of his adventure set even greater events in motion, starting with his discovery of an old ring. Digitally sculpted using photo reference directly from the set of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and cold cast in the highest quality polystone comes the Bilbo Baggins Mini Bust from Gentle Giant Ltd! Every detail – from Martin Freeman’s likeness as this incarnation of the titular hobbit to the runes engraved on Sting, his magical Elven blade – has been captured and recreated here with the utmost accuracy. No other collectable even comes close to our level of screen-accuracy. Each hand-painted bust is individually numbered and comes with a matching certificate of authenticity. Pre-Order Here

This gorgeous 18” statue has been digitally sculpted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd. and cold-cast using only the highest quality polystone, then integrated with a variety of mixed media.

It doesn’t take long for the Imperial Forces to react after the disastrous and devastating loss at the Battle of Endor. With the Emperor gone, many would-be “heirs” attempt to stake their claim.

Boba Fett First Shot Kenner PGM 2013 Gift

One of the "Holy Grails" of the toy collecting world is the incredibly rare and hard-to-find Rocket Firing Boba Fett figure prototype. The only evidence of "what could have been," the original Boba Fett figure was never released with its rocket firing feature due to safety concerns. No finished versions of the functional figure are known to exist, and only a few of the original one-color injection-molded figures prototypes have ever been seen outside of the Kenner factory. These pieces are highly sought-after by collectors and have fetched incredible prices on the secondary markets. In honor of this legendary piece of toy lore, we have scanned an original Boba Fett action figure, reengineerd the J-slot firing mechanism, resized it to our Jumbo scale and added it to our unbelievably popular Kenner line! Rendered in the original unfinished blue state, this unique collectable is the perfect companion piece to your finished Rocket Firing Boba Fett, or an exciting way to start your brand new collection! Featuring replica red missile and black blaster accessories, no details has been overlooked. Injection molded and made of durable plastics, this jumbo figure comes fully articulated and includes real rocket-firing action! That’s not all, this prototype Kenner creation comes packaged on a half-sized re-closable blister card, sealed inside a transparent polybag featuring the Kenner logo!

Posted at 
GentleGiantLTD.com

"Everything that has transpired has done so according to my design."

Once a respected Senator of the Republic, the man who would be Emperor embraced the Dark Side of the Force in order to gain untold power. After declaring himself Emperor and dissolving the Republic, Palpatine began a reign of terror that spread evil throughout the universe. Only the combined efforts of the Rebel Alliance and the Jedi Order, now reborn in Luke Skywalker, were able to overthrow the Emperor and end his tyranny.

No collection is complete without the true embodiment of the Dark Side. Hand crafted using the highest quality polystone, Gentle Giant is proud to bring you the Emperor Palpatine Mini Bust. Rendered here as he appeared in Return of the Jedi, no detail was overlooked in the creation of this bust. Individually numbered and hand painted, these limited edition mini busts include a matching certificate of authenticity. Embrace the Dark Side. It is unavoidable. It is your destiny.

EE Exclusive Scout Trooper Ewok Attack Maquette

Posted at Entertainmentearth.com:

Quick, to your speeder bikes! Inspired by events seen in Return of the Jedi, an Imperial Scout Trooper appears here in this roughly 10-inch tall animated style resin statue, on the run from the locals. The highly-trained, specialized, and focused troopers are generally left to their own devices except when the locals decide to take back the forest. While the troopers have guns, the Ewoks have the numbers needed to "axe" the Empire to vacate the area surrounding Bright Tree Village. This unique take on the final battles of the Star Wars saga with the kind of action befitting the destruction of massive intergalactic governing body. The Scout Trooper is armed with a blaster and his wits, while the three Ewoks attack with axes and the kind of rage you'll only find in the woods. Measures about 10-inches tall. Limited edition of 1,200 pieces.

GG 2012 Premier Guild Memberships Star Wars Sneak Previews!

Gentle Giant LTD sent out a newsletter blast last night highlighting 2012 Premier Guild Memberships Offerings, check out the Star Wars related ones below:

Republic Commando Mini Bust with Light-Up Visor - Elite soldiers of the Grand Army of the Republic, the Clone Commandos were crafted by the Kaminoans for war. Based off of the genetic template of the infamous bounty hunter Jango Fett and indoctrinated into the Mandalorian culture, Republic Commandos worked in highly coordinated teams of four operatives, each with their own individual specialties, to complete missions with objectives too complex for the average Clone Trooper, or requiring more firepower than the average ARC Trooper can muster. When Order 66 was issued, the Republic Commandos’ objective turned from defending the Republic to hunting down and executing the Jedi, a task they completed with ruthless efficiency. Soon after the fall of the Republic, the surviving units from the Clone Wars were rechristened Imperial Commandos.

Rebel Fleet Trooper - Loyal soldiers of the Alliance Navy, Rebel Fleet Troopers serve on ships large and small throughout the galaxy. In spite of the incredible odds they face in taking on the evil Galactic Empire, their unwavering devotion to the Rebellion gives them the inner strength and will to do whatever it takes to win the war, even if it means sacrificing their own lives. Hand crafted and rendered at 1/6th scale in high-quality polystone, this mini bust was created using digital scans of authentic costumes and the DH-17 blaster to ensure the utmost accuracy.

Gamorrean Guard Kenner 12' Figure - Just like they were when you were a kid, only BIGGER! Gentle Giant continues on with their new line of vintage Star Wars action figure reproductions with the release of the Gamorrean Guard! Digitally scanned from mint 3 3/4” Kenner originals and reproduced in scale to the rest of the jumbo Kenner line. Nothing has been overlooked. Roto and injection molded and made of durable plastics, this fully-articulated jumbo figure includes a faithfully reproduced blaster. That’s not all, this classic Kenner creation comes packaged on a 1983 Return of the Jedi-inspired blister card, featuring original artwork, in a re-sealable plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display!

Ghost Rider Statue $459 - Release Date: Q3 2012 

Johnny Blaze sold his soul to Mephisto to save his mentor’s life. In return, Blaze now rides through the Marvel Universe as the living Spirit of Vengeance, Ghost Rider! With the power to channel pure Hellfire and the ability to unleash unimaginable pain upon his foes with his piercing Penance Stare, Ghost Rider is perhaps one of the most powerful heroes this side of the afterlife.

Over the last five years, we have built up a massive Image Guide of nearly every single item Gentle Giant Ltd has produced. We add to the guides monthly. We have seen over 40 of the products on our readers  Most Wanted list get made by Gentle Giant since we launched it in 2006 and over 3,600 have followed us on Facebook (and it's growing each and every day)!

We have over 25,000 products registered in our registry by over 1,100 unique collectors and have over 335,000 messages posted at our message boards! In 2009, we became the official home of the Gentle Giant Collection of the Month and in 2011 that converted to the Collection of The Quarter. We have expanded our very popular Price Guides and have added improvements to our registry that allows collectors to not only keep track of each item and edition number but also download and export it, and also see a current market value of what the collection is worth!

We will be posting great giveaways in the next 3 weeks to celebrate this milestone, and our first one is sponsored by RazorsEdgeCollectibles.net. Enter to win a Star Wars Commander Bly Mini Bust - shipped anywhere in the world for FREE!  Click the banner below for more info on how to enter! 

 

Thanks to all our readers and fans for an amazing five years!

 

 

Squirrelpool Giveaway Contest!

 

Posted by Gentle Giant LTD:

So we just did our quarterly inventory here at Gentle Giant last week, and we found a little so-and-so that stowed away on the truck back from San Diego. I’m talking about this guy:

squirrelpool mini bust

Cute, right? Well, don’t let him fool you. Just like that rabbit from that movie, this is undoubtedly the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on. Naturally, we want to get him out of the Studio ASAP, but we want to make sure he’s going to go to a good, stable, Marvel-loving home.  So, in order to do that, we’re throwing a contest! (Yay!)

Here are the rules. Anyone* that places a pre-order for ANY of our upcoming Marvel pieces (or purchases one of the few remaining Captain America Movie Mini Busts – another SDCC exclusive) between now and Noon (PST) on Monday, September 19th is eligible to win one of FIVE of these lovely little homicidal varmints. I will post the winners here on our blog at noon on Tuesday, September 20th.

A collector can only win once, but every pre-order you place counts as an entry.

CLICK HERE TO ENTER!

Star Wars Darth Vader Meet the Maker Holiday 2011 Deluxe Mini Bust!

 

The Gentle Giant Holiday Bust has become quite a tradition. 2011 brings collectors of this rare line a new mini bust based on the 2010 LucasFilm holiday greeting card featuring Darth Vader releasing a white dove.

For the rest of the year, collectors can display this bust without the dove in Vader’s outstretched left hand, thus transforming the piece to more accurately reflect the pivotal scene from The Empire Strikes Back, as Vader reveals his paternal connection to the wounded rebel, Luke Skywalker. Additionally, members of the Gentle Giant Premier Guild will have the opportunity to order the deluxe version of the mini-bust with an interchangeable Vader hand holding C-3PO’s disembodied head. Inspired from the Dark Horse comic, and also reprinted and packaged with the bust, is the complete “Thank the Maker” story from Star Wars Tales #6, giving a close look at what truly happened to C-3PO on that fateful day in Cloud City.

Boasting three pose variations and an exclusive reprint comic, this film accurate 1/6th scale rendition of the infamous dark lord comes hand numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity and is a strictly limited edition collectible, only from Gentle Giant LTD.

Darth Maul Premier Guild Mini Bust!

Gentle Giant is offering three different choice that Premier Guild members can select as their gift for 2011. In a break from tradition, we’re revealing them one at a time over the next two weeks.

The first gift you can choose from is… The Darth Maul Mini Bust

 
 

Darth Maul was little more than a being of pure hatred and evil thanks to his harsh severe training under his master; Darth Sidious. However, he was not totally heartless, granting those he felt worthy of his respect quick and painless deaths.

Unlike many Sith Lords, including his Master, Darth Maul never taunted his opponents, or at least not with words, as he preferred to win a duel through combat prowess alone.

When fighting multiple opponents, Maul extended the second blade of his lightsaber to form a saberstaff thereby doubling his lethality.

Sculpted in 1/6th scale and standing just under 7”. Maul is cast in high quality poly-stone no detail was over looked; from costume details, Sith tattoos and the arduously fashioned double bladed lightsaber in Maul’s hands. This strictly limited edition collectible comes hand numbered, complete with a matching certificate of authenticity.
