It’s almost time to celebrate! Star Wars Celebration arrives in Anaheim, California next week, and Diamond Select Toys and Gentle Giant Ltd. will be there! Check them out at Booth 1719, where they’ll have tons of prototypes on display, as well as a wide range of new products for sale! Plus, swing by the Star Wars Collectibles panel at 2:30 on Thursday to see even more in-the-works products! While at the booth, you’ll have the opportunity to pre-order the two Celebration exclusives!
Star Wars The Mandalorian Remnant Stormtrooper 1/6 Scale Mini-Bust
A Gentle Giant Ltd. release! Once, the Imperial Stormtrooper was a proud breed, serving the Empire faithfully and relentlessly. But now that the Empire has fallen, so has the Stormtrooper, often selling their services to the highest bidder. This 1/6 scale, approximately 6-inch mini-bust of a battle-scarred Remnant Stormtrooper includes interchangeable arms holding an E-11 blaster and a DLT-19 heavy blaster rifle. It is limited to only 1000 pieces, and comes packaged in a full-color box with a numbered certificate of authenticity. ($120)
Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back Imperial Commander 12″ Jumbo Figure
A Gentle Giant Ltd. release! From the glory days of the Empire, it’s the Imperial Commander! Faithfully reproducing the vintage Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back figure from 1980, but in a 12-inch scale, this 1/6 scale figure includes his original blaster, and comes packaged on a resealable clamshell blister card, with vintage-style artwork. Limited to only 500 pieces! ($80)
Gentle Giant Ltd. Is traveling to Chicago, IL to attend Star Wars Celebration April 11-15, and they’re bringing two popular Clone Wars characters – Hera Syndulla and Darth Maul – as this year’s exclusive offerings!
The captain and heart of the Ghost crew, Hera Syndulla was a gifted pilot and leader. While Hera was a strong commander – and especially adept at dogfighting with TIE fighters – she was also warm and nurturing. The Twi’lek could bring out the best in her team, which consisted of very different personalities, making them believe in themselves, each other, and their struggle against the Empire. Hera will be made available as a 1:6 scale resin bust, for a price of $120.00.
A deadly, agile Sith Lord trained by the evil Darth Sidious, Darth Maul was a formidable warrior and scheming mastermind. He wielded an intimidating double-bladed lightsaber and fought with a menacing ferocity. Though he fell in battle against Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Zabrak from Dathomir would prove to be much harder to destroy than originally believed. Darth Maul will be depicted with his Force-constructed spider legs in a 1:8 scale Collector’s Gallery statue, available for $200.00.
Star Wars Premier Guild members will be able to pre-order the busts beginning March 25. All others can come by the Diamond Select Toys/Gentle Giant Ltd. booth between April 11 and 15th! See you in Chicago!
