Gentle Giant Announce New Star Wars, Walking Dead, and Hobbit Collectibles

Gentle Giant have announced a ton of new collectibles inspired by Star Wars, The Walking Dead TV show, and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

First up are two new installments in their ongoing series of Kenner Jumbo Figures, which are large reproductions of the original Star Wars action figures. Due out at the end of the year, the newest entries are Dengar and 4-Lom, two of the bounty hunters hired to track down Han, Leia, and the Millennium Falcon. Scanned from the original 3.75-inch tall original toys, 4-Lom is now 11.75-inches tall, while Dengar is now 11.5-inches. Both come with reproductions of the original 1980 Empire Strikes Back packaging, and will retail for $80.00 each.

Next up are two different mini busts. The first is one of Grand Admiral Thrawn from Timothy Zahn’s epic Star Wars novels. Thrawn also comes with his pet, Ysalamir. His mini bust stands 6/75-inches tall, and will be $75.00 when it comes out this holiday.

Similarly, the Luke Snowspeeder Pilot Deluxe Mini Bust has Luke holding the grappling hook device he used to great effect in that scene. The bust is 7-inches tall, and will retail for $85.00. There’s also a second version of this piece, called the Luke Snowspeeder PGM EXCLUSIVE Deluxe Mini Bust, which is also 7-inches tall and $85.00, but comes with three sets of interchangeable arms so you alternate between Luke holding the grappling hook, a blaster, or his lightsaber.

Gentle Giant are also taking the same dual approach with their Daryl Dixon Mini Bust. Standing at 7-inches tall, and retailing for $85.00, the original version has The Walking Dead’s resident bad boy holding his crossbow, while the Daryl Dixon Bonus Mini Bust adds a string of zombie ears for him to wear. Daryl’s mini bust should also be out near the end of this year.

Along the same lines, the two versions of the Goblin King Mini Bust has the monarch from the first Hobbit movie standing 9-inches tall and holding his scepter. Retail price will be $99. And if you order the Goblin King Mini Bust from Gentle Giant, you’ll get a second mini bust of the Goblin Scribe, which stands 2-inches tall. Like the others, the Goblin King’s mini bust is slated for release in the fourth quarter 2013.

All of these collectibles are currently available for pre-order from Gentle Giant’s website.
