Star-Lord Collector's Gallery Statue

Star-Lord is back and he’s leading the Guardians of the Galaxy into new adventures!
Born on Earth to an Earthling mother and alien father, Peter Quill aka Star-Lord quickly found his way to the stars, surviving among the space pirates known as Ravagers. Peter’s adventures have taken him from one end of the galaxy to the next along with his rag-tag team of misfits.

Straight from his silver-screen appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, the Star-Lord Collector’s Gallery Statue has been digitally sculpted down the most minute detail, and hand-painted by the amazing artisans of Gentle Giant Studios. Star-Lord is rocking his signature helmet, has his blaster in hand and is full of the attitude that has made him one of the notorious rogues in the galaxy… or at least in his own mind. This 1:8 scale statue of Star-Lord is the 4th in our Marvel Collector’s Gallery statue line. Comes numbered with certificate of authenticity.

Borrow money from a pessimist, they don't expect it back.

This wouldn't even pass as a "good" statue in the 90's.

Well I have to agree that it just looks off and awkward. Compared to the other 1/8 gentle giant statues this one is a big step back.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I'm confused because it seemed like the Collector's Gallery statues were based off comics. I have ordered them all so far, and can't wait for Punisher to come up for order. Deadpool, Spidey, Venom, they will all look great together, but this looks like it won't fit with them... weird. I think I remember seeing a Collector's Gallery Black Widow that was also based off the movies... They should stick to either comic based or movie based so that they can all go together. I don't really collect the movie based statues, so I'll probably pass on this one.

No, it's just a church'd up term for 1/8th scale. There's also Kneeling Vader and the Death Trooper along with any others they showcased at Celebration. There was also a time, back before they came up with the fancy-shmancy term, when they unveiled a 1/8th Winter Soldier Cap and a 1/8th Iron Patriot to accent Black Widow. They gave them the axe because no one wanted them.

They need to go back to 1/6th..even if it's just one release a year. Its better than no releases.

What a DULL pose. Gentle Giant could do better. It's a big pass for me.
