May The Sculptor’s Hand Be With You
Gentle Giant have announced that they’ll release four Star Wars statues in the second quarter of 2013.
First up are a pair of mini busts for Max Rebo and a Battle Droid. Retailing for $75 each, the Max Rebo Mini Bust is 5″x 6″x 4½”, while the Pilot Battle Droid Mini Bust is 2 7/8″x 2 7/8″x 6 ¾.
Next, they have a Sandtrooper On Dewback Animated Maquette, which is sculpted in the style of the original Clone Wars cartoon that came out between Episode II and Episode III, and not the one currently airing on Cartoon Network (though they do share some stylistic similarities). It will be 13 ¾”x 13 ¾”x 14 ¾” and will retail for $399. Though if you preorder it by December 1, Gentle Giant will also give you a $100 gift certificate.
Finally, they have a Darth Maul Spider Statue, which is inspired by the character’s return in The Clone Wars cartoon, but is designed with a more realistic look befitting how he appeared in Episode I. Its dimensions are 18”x 18” x 14 ½”, it will retail for $399, and as with the Sandtrooper maquette, preordering by December 1 gets you a $100 gift certificate as well.
All four can be preordered from Gentle Giant’s website: http://www.gentlegiantltd.com
