Gentle Giant: 2013 Premier Guild Exclusives

By Mike — Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Gentle Giant announces their 2013 Premier Guild Membership program and it includes a few pieces of Star Wars awesomeness, like a Jumbo Kenner "First Shot" Rocket Firing Boba Fett prototype!

The other 2 Star Wars PGM gifts this year include a Darth Vader Holographic minibust and an all new Mace Windu minibust. Premier Guild memberships go on sale March 4th. Click here for more information on how to join!





Darth Vader. A legendary name synonymous with pure evil. Formerly known as Anakin Skywalker, a Jedi Knight, Darth Vader was seduced by the Dark Side of the Force and became one of the most feared and notorious scourges of good in the Galaxy. His reign of terror would last for more than two decades until his redemption when he sacrificed himself to save his own son. 

Using only the highest quality resins, the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd. have taken our classic Revenge of the Sith Darth Vader Mini Bust and re-envisioned it as a transparent blue "holographic" version! It even lights up! Crafted using the original digital scans from Revenge of the Sith, no other mini bust can claim the same level of accuracy and detail! Sign up for the 2013 Premier Guild and select it as your gift today!


One of the "Holy Grails" of the toy collecting world is the incredibly rare and hard-to-find Rocket Firing Boba Fett figure prototype. The only evidence of "what could have been," the original Boba Fett figure was never released with its rocket firing feature due to safety concerns. No finished versions of the functional figure are known to exist, and only a few of the original one-color injection-molded figures prototypes have ever been seen outside of the Kenner factory. These pieces are highly sought-after by collectors and have fetched incredible prices on the secondary markets. 
In honor of this legendary piece of toy lore, we have scanned an original Boba Fett action figure, reengineerd the J-slot firing mechanism, resized it to our Jumbo scale and added it to our unbelievably popular Kenner line! Rendered in the original unfinished blue state, this unique collectable is the perfect companion piece to your finished Rocket Firing Boba Fett, or an exciting way to start your brand new collection! Featuring replica red missile and black blaster accessories, no details has been overlooked. Injection molded and made of durable plastics, this jumbo figure comes fully articulated and includes real rocket-firing action! 
That’s not all, this prototype Kenner creation comes packaged on a half-sized re-closable blister card, sealed inside a transparent polybag featuring the Kenner logo! Sign up for the 2013 Premier Guild and select it as your gift today!
Master Mace Windu was a member of the Jedi High Council before Order 66 and the Great Jedi Purge. During the Clone Wars, Master Windu served as High Jedi General of the Republic, overseeing the Jedi and Republic forces against the Trade Federation and their allies. During the Battle of Geonosis, he personally lead a force of two hundred and twelve Jedi against innumerable Battle Droids to save Anakin Skywalker and Queen Amidala. During this battle he personally slew the infamous bounty hunter, Jango Fett
After more than ten years, Gentle Giant Ltd. is revisiting one of its first pieces, Jedi Master Mace Windu. Featuring a completely original and dramatic sculpt based on the original digital scans of actor Samuel L. Jackson, his costumes and props from Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, no other collectable is as screen accurate. This hand-painted limited edition bust crafted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd. is individually numbered and comes with a matching certificate of authenticity.
