Gentle Giant: 2013 Premier Guild Membership Details

Posted By Chris on February 26, 2013

Gentle Giant Ltd. has just announced their 2013 Premier Guild Member gift options. This year, collectors can choose from a brand new Mace Windu Mini Bust, a Darth Vader Holographic Mini Bust or a 12" Jumbo Vintage Kenner Boba Fett "First Shot" figure. Memberships will go on sale Monday, March 4th.

From Gentle Giant:

Mace Windu

Master Mace Windu was a member of the Jedi High Council before Order 66 and the Great Jedi Purge. During the Clone Wars, Master Windu served as High Jedi General of the Republic, overseeing the Jedi and Republic forces against the Trade Federation and their allies. During the Battle of Geonosis, he personally lead a force of two hundred and twelve Jedi against innumerable Battle Droids to save Anakin Skywalker and Queen Amidala. During this battle he personally slew the infamous bounty hunter, Jango Fett.

After more than ten years, Gentle Giant Ltd. is revisiting one of its first pieces, Jedi Master Mace Windu. Featuring a completely original and dramatic sculpt based on the original digital scans of actor Samuel L. Jackson, his costumes and props from Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, no other collectible is as screen accurate. This hand-painted limited edition bust crafted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd. is individually numbered and comes with a matching certificate of authenticity.


Darth Vader Holographic

Darth Vader. A legendary name synonymous with pure evil. Formerly known as Anakin Skywalker, a Jedi Knight, Darth Vader was seduced by the Dark Side of the Force and became one of the most feared and notorious scourges of good in the Galaxy. His reign of terror would last for more than two decades until his redemption when he sacrificed himself to save his own son.

Using only the highest quality resins, the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd. have taken our classic Revenge of the Sith Darth Vader Mini Bust and re-envisioned it as a transparent blue "holographic" version! It even lights up! Crafted using the original digital scans from Revenge of the Sith, no other mini bust can claim the same level of accuracy and detail!


Boba Fett Rocket Firing Prototype

One of the "Holy Grails" of the toy collecting world is the incredibly rare and hard-to-find Rocket Firing Boba Fett figure prototype. The only evidence of "what could have been," the original Boba Fett figure was never released with its rocket firing feature due to safety concerns. No finished versions of the functional figure are known to exist, and only a few of the original one-color injection-molded figures prototypes have ever been seen outside of the Kenner factory. These pieces are highly sought-after by collectors and have fetched incredible prices on the secondary markets.

In honor of this legendary piece of toy lore, we have scanned an original Boba Fett action figure, reengineered the J-slot firing mechanism, resized it to our Jumbo scale and added it to our unbelievably popular Kenner line! Rendered in the original unfinished blue state, this unique collectible is the perfect companion piece to your finished Rocket Firing Boba Fett, or an exciting way to start your brand new collection! Featuring replica red missile and black blaster accessories, no details has been overlooked. Injection molded and made of durable plastics, this jumbo figure comes fully articulated and includes real rocket-firing action!

Thatís not all, this prototype Kenner creation comes packaged on a half-sized re-closable blister card, sealed inside a transparent polybag featuring the Kenner logo!


There is also a non-Star Wars gift option:



War Machine

From the screen to your shelf, Gentle Giant Ltd. is proud to bring you the 2013 Premier Guild Exclusive WAR MACHINE Mini Bust! Who says hanging out with Tony Stark doesn't have its perks? Jim "Rhody" Rhodes (played by Don Cheadle) is Tony's Air Force Liaison and the closest thing he can call a friend. In Iron Man 2, Tony gave Rhody his own heavy weapons-focused set of Iron Man armor, codenamed War Machine. Now, War Machine will stand side-by-side with Iron Man as they do battle with The Mandarin in 2013's Iron Man 3!

This bold, action-packed deluxe piece features an unprecedented level of detail and dramatic light-up effects! Digitally sculpted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd. using the suit designs from IRON MAN 3, this is the most screen-accurate War Machine mini bust available! This hand-painted limited edition bust is individually numbered and comes with a matching certificate of authenticity.
