The Biggest Star Wars Boba Fett Figure Ever Is Up for Pre-Order

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 19, 2014

I expected that Jakks Pacific would hold the crown with a 20- or even 31-inch take on the Bounty Hunter we all love, but no - this was not to be.  It turns out that the Comic-Con debut of the  Star Wars Boba Fett Life-Size Vintage Kenner Action Figure (pre-order yours, if you dare) takes the cake at 6-feet tall.  Gentle Giant makes this figure to sell similarly sized Stormtrooper and Darth Vader action figures.  That's 72-inches of your Boba Fettish complete with red rocket, blue blaster, and a display stand.   Having seen one up close myself, I can tell you that it's the kind of thing any of us should be so lucky to have in our office.

SDCC14: Gentle Giant Image Bank

By Mike — Thursday, July 24, 2014

Gentle Giant's booth was a centerpiece of goodies big and small. New minibusts of Wedge Antilles, Luke Endor, and Queen Amidala in her Red Senate Gown that are due out in Q4 look absolutely fantastic and so do the new maquettes based on characters from Star Wars Rebels.

3D Systems Acquires Gentle Giant Studios

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 3, 2014

In a slightly more surprising move, 3D Systems Acquires Gentle Giant Studios.   The press release doesn't really say how (or if) this will alter the proceedings of our favorite collectible statues and busts, but the company 3D Systems is apparently quite interested to enter that realm of the world. More as we have it - although probably not at Toy Fair as Gentle Giant hasn't exhibited there recently.

SDCC13: Gentle Giant Supersizes Jumbo

By Mike — Sunday, July 21, 2013

Gentle Giant came in with all hands on deck for this year's Comic-Con. With 9 exclusives and 4 being Star Wars, GG wanted to make a splash this year. Their other non-Star Wars licenses that include The Walking Dead and their proprietary Honey Trap line are doing phenomenally well. But an assortment that has been steadily growing and gaining more fans is their Jumbo Vintage Kenner line.

By Mike — Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Surprise? There is another...Gentle Giant SDCC exclusive. Today's announcement is plenty times awesome, especially for those who are versed in their vintage Kenner history and know that this was only released in Canada and Australia in this packaging format and a Tri-logo card in Europe, but never released in the U.S. (sound familiar 2013 Movie Heroes fans?) The fourth SDCC exclusive is a Jumbo Vintage POTF Yakface complete with coin!
