First up we have our Star Wars: A New Hope Obi-Wan Kenobi Death Star Duel Mini-Bust

For those watching Star Wars: A New Hope back in 1977, “Ben” Obi-Wan Kenobi was the original “Last Jedi.” For our 2017 Premier Guild exclusive 1:6 scale mini-bust we see Obi-Wan Kenobi, desert recluse and mentor, locked in the fateful duel from the original Star Wars film as he faces down his former padawan on the Death Star. With his hood up, lightsaber ignited and a steely determination in his eyes, Obi-Wan stands his ground against his former pupil and makes the ultimate sacrifice to help save the galaxy.

It has been 10 years since Gentle Giant Ltd. has released an Episode IV Obi-Wan bust and now the Premier Guild is proud to bring you the exclusive Obi-Wan Kenobi Death Star Duel Mini Bust! Digitally sculpted by our master artisans, using actual archival footage and designs, each Obi-Wan Kenobi Death Star Duel Mini Bust is rendered using the highest quality polystone, hand painted and includes a light feature imbedded in the bust to illuminate the blade of his lightsaber.

Each piece comes individually numbered and is paired with a matching certificate of authenticity.

Digitally sculpted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd., the Marvel Old Man Logan bust features Logan in his duster with claws extended and the young Hulkling on his back. Crafted using only the highest quality polystone, each limited-edition hand-painted mini bust comes individually numbered and is packed with a matching certificate of authenticity.

It would have been nice if they included a shot of Baby Banner on his back.

How about paints? When will we get to see a painted prototype?

FN-2199 Trooper Star Wars Mini-Bust



The First Order Stormtrooper FN-2199 has several nicknames. Fans nicknamed him TR-8R after his famous first line in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In the Star Wars comic books, he was called “Nines.” No matter what you call him the one thing we know about FN-2199 is that he hates defectors!



Armed with his blaster, shield and his Z6 riot control baton FN-2199 is ready to take on any unruly crowds or former friends now wielding lightsabers.



The story that began a long time ago returns, giving us the next chapter in the saga from a galaxy far, far away. Gentle Giant Ltd. is honored in bringing collectors all-new characters from Star Wars: Episode 7, The Force Awakens. Gentle Giant Ltd. announces the next of our mini busts from Star Wars: Episode 7, The Force Awakens with the First Order Stormtrooper FN-2199 as an exclusive for the 2017 Premier Guild! Designed, modeled and prototyped using top of the line 3D technology using actual scans of the costume and weapons, this 1:6th scale mini bust fits right into our collection from the ongoing Star Wars saga. Each mini bust is hand cast, hand painted and hand numbered with a limited edition certificate of authenticity.

This morning's reveal is for the new Collector's Gallery statue and it is VERY early. It so early that we don't even have a digital render to show you, just one of our pieces concept art for the character. We will have an updated look at the statue in a few weeks at Star Wars Celebration, but for now think of this announcement more like a character announcement rather than a concept/pose announcement. This statue will change and we will share the progress updates with you as we get further along.
