Image Bank: Animated Princess Leia Boussh Maquette

By Mike — Sunday, March 11, 2012

The Genndy Tartavosky animated series from 2003 has spawned a great sub set of collectible maquettes by Gentle Giant, and Entertainment Earth's exclusive Princess Leia as the bounty hunter Boussh is another great addition. This 10 inch tall rendition of the princess as re-imagined if she were in the style of the cartoon is nicely designed, sexy, but sort of fragile.

Image Bank: Aurra Sing Minibust

By Mike — Saturday, March 3, 2012

I think Aurra Sing has evolved quite nicely in the Star Wars mythos. When she first appeared as a passing glimpse in The Phantom Menace, we hardly knew the personality of the padawan turned bounty hunter. Her recent appearance in The Clone Wars really cemented the deal of her badassery. The new Gentle Giant minibust is based on The Episode I version played by actress Michonne Bourriage, and it's a stunning piece that not only captures her likeness quite compellingly, but there's so much more.

Preview: Yoda With 3D Glasses Minibust

By Mike — Thursday, March 1, 2012

Gentle Giant has always been pretty ingenius when it comes to their Holiday Edition busts. We can usually expect some kind of twist on a Star Wars theme like a or Holiday Max Rebo or Yakface. However, when it comes to their summer convention exclusives, it's been an overwhelming offering of Clones and Troopers. There's perfectly sensible reasoning behind this, since these types of minibusts normally sell through fairly well. For the 2012 convention season, starting with this month's WonderCon, Gentle Giant takes a different approach and offers a piece that is fun, whimsical, commemorative, and what Adam Pawlus refers to quite appropriately as an iconic cultural touchstone.
