Gentle Giant releases solicitations for their upcoming Star Wars Dart Board and Kenner Jumbo R5-D4. The dart board, set in high quality hardwood, features Princess Leia in her slave outfit by comic book artist Adam Hughes. R5-D4 was digitally scanned from the original Kenner figure and even includes a "clicking motion" when his head is turned. Both are slated for release in the 3rd Quarter of 2012.
We have uploaded photos from the Gentle Giant booth at Comic-Con. The booth is traditionally the center of attention in the Exhibit Hall and this year is no different, with free Bust Ups being thrown randomly out to the crowd and Slave Leias providing a lot of visual appeal and photo opps. This year, Her Universe hosted a fashion show featuring various scantily clad models sporting the latest in Star Wars t-shirt fashion and little else.
The Official Site gives a breakout of all the exclusive swag at Comic-Con International later this week, including Hasbro's Death Star Collector's Pack, Gentle Giant's McQuarrie Snowtrooper and Jumbo Vinyl Cape Jawa, the SOLD OUT Sideshow 12 inch Clone Commander, and others.
