New from Gentle Giant Ltd. for August 2013

gentlegiantlogo01Here’s what’s new from Gentle Giant for August 2013. We’ve got four exciting new items to announce this time around:

– Imperial Snowtrooper (Hoth Battle Gear) Kenner Jumbo – The Hoth cycle continues as we bring you the Imperial Snowtrooper! The iconic villainous footsoldier from The Empire Strikes Back is sure to be a hit with fans and toy collectors alike.

– Yoda Hoth Statue – Unveiled at SDCC, the companion piece to last month’s Padme Amidala Statue was easily one of the most talked about reveals at the show. Many collectors and critics approached me to tell me personally how they think this is one of the best renderings of the character in a collectable format that they’ve seen.

– Boba Fett Holiday Special Animated Maquette – This is another surprise unveil at SDCC that garnered a lot of buzz. It’s not often you see products based on the 1979 Star Wars Holiday Special, and it’s sure to be a hit with hardcore Star Wars fans of all ages.

– Daryl Dixon Walker Ear Prop Replica with Display Case – This exciting new entry into our line of prop replicas is certainly gruesome. Horror fans and cosplayers alike are already clamoring for it.
