Collectible company Gentle Giant have announced nine new statues and mini-busts for fans of Star Wars, The Walking Dead, The Hobbit, and Marvel Comics. All are available for pre-order now.
For Star Wars fans, especially those who remember the original Kenner action figures, Gentle Giant are releasing 12-inch tall replicas of Gamorrean Guard and Bobba Fett toys, as well as a 20-inch tall recreation of the Cantina Playset. All are exact replicas of the Kenner originals, and even come in the original plastic packaging, with Boba even able to shoot his rocket. The Boba Fett and Gamorrean Guard figures are $85 each, while the Cantina Playset, which does not include any figures, is $89.
Gentle Giant are also releasing a number of mini busts, starting with Droopy McCool, the flutist in the Max Rebo Band. This statue is 5-inches tall, and will retail for $70.
Another upcoming mini bust features Gollum from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings looking like his usual happy self. Befitting his physical size, his mini bust stands 5 & 1/8-inches tall, and retails for $65.
Two characters from The Walking Dead are also getting mini-busted: the Well Walker zombie and Sheriff Grimes. Both are slightly taller than 6-inches and retail for $75 each.
Finally, two Marvel Comics characters are getting busted as well. The statuesque Venom Mini Bust is 8 & 3/8-inches tall, while the Iron Man Avengers Deluxe Mini Bust, which is modeled after the way he looked in The Avengers, is 7 & 3.8-inches tall. Both retail for $85.
All of these collectibles are limited numbered editions.
