AFX Exclusive Star Wars Droid Jumbo Kenner Action Figure Set with Backdrop by Gentle Giant
September 6, 2013

 Action Figure Xpress announced this little exclusive gem earlier in the week.  Some great new packaging and a great price for getting 3 of these Jumbo figures:

Just like they were when you were a kid, only BIGGER! Gentle Giant continues on with their new line of vintage Star Wars Action figure reproductions with an epic Droid-themed three-pack featuring the Death Star Droid, R5-D4 and Power Droid! All three figures were digitally scanned from mint Kenner originals and reproduced to Jumbo scale. The Death Star Droid is fully vac-metallized, while R5-D4 and the Power Droid feature faithfully reproduced “clicking” articulation, just like the originals!
That’s not all! This set comes packaged in a cardboard-backed plastic sealed tray, featuring a vintage-style outer cardboard shell, perfect for display! You won’t want to miss out on this exciting AFX Exclusive from Gentle Giant Ltd.
These three, together with R2-D2, were captured and transported by the Jawas in the sandcrawler across the Tatooine Desert. R5-D4 was originally purchased by Luke. The power droid was first seen in the sandcrawler dungeon together with a gleaming silver Death Star Droid.
Exclusive Star Wars backdrop included for added realism!

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

    Now let’s see the new Alien Super 7 figures at this scale! I saw the vintage style giant Wampa at Comic Con. Best thing I’ve ever seen in life!
