3-D Print Your Own Life-Size R2-D2, Kenner Style

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 27, 2020

3760 Where are those plans?  Etsy!   One of the big questions we've had as toy fans is "When will 3-D printing supplant manufacturing in China?"  As of now it's still not ready for the kiddies, but someone on Etsy is charging $20 for plans for a 3D Printable Life Sized action figure inspired by vintage R2D2.  This is something Gentle Giant showed off as an official Kenner-inspired Star Wars action figure product, so it's unknown how Team Lucas and the House of Mouse will feel about $20 for plans to roll your own high-end collectible.  I doubt the final product would be as good as the licensed item right now, but these plans could prove invaluable as printing equipment gets better.

Toy Fair 2020 - Star Wars from Diamond Select Toys, or Gentle Giant if You Prefer

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 22, 2020

Diamond Select Toys and Gentle Giant! Diamond Select Toys is embracing and adopting the Gentle Giant house style. Busts from Star Wars Rebels and The Clone Wars include familiar black display stands, while one thing that's very familiar - the Gentle Giant brand name - seems to be disappearing. There are still plenty of awesome statues for most price ranges, including Luke Skywalker looking wistfully at the sunset and a preposterously huge $600 retail Darth Vader on Cloud City. It's him about to tell Luke about his parentage. You know the scene.

3 Jumbo Kenner Figures for $100 - Gentle Giant Labor Day Special

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, August 30, 2014

The Droid 3-Pack AFX Exclusive Kenner Jumbo Figures - Death Star Droid, R5-D4, and Power Droid - were boxed together with a swell background about a year ago.  Gentle Giant still has a few around and now it's a mere $100 for the set - basically three for the price of one.   While issues like "space" and "not having several thousand dollars" may keep people like you and me from collecting them all, $33.33 a pop is a swell deal.  Click through to see if they have any left.

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.

By Mike — Thursday, July 24, 2014
