Gentle Giant Studios Helps The Star Wars Show “Keep it 100” with The Star Wars Show 100th Episode Commemorative Statuette
July 18, 2018
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…and by a long time ago we mean every week, and by far, far, away we mean in a renovated copy room at Lucasfilm Headquarters. It’s The Star Wars Show! The hilarious Emmy nominated weekly short form variety show produced by the StarWars.com team, immortalized in a collectible statuette from Gentle Giant.
The statue is hand painted and limited to 500 pieces, and features the iconic TIE Fighter Coffee Table as a base, as well as The Star Wars Show’s droid mascots stacked on top of one another capturing the action. There’s Gonk, the slow moving battery supporting the weight of the “Director of Chopperations” C1-1OP, who is holding boom operator/mouse droid extraordinaire CH-33Z!
 
 
The Star Wars Show may not be the only Star Wars show on the internet, but it is the only one with a Gentle Giant LTD. Statuette!

While this is not an official Gentle Giant LTD product, the Gentle Giant Studios crew put the same amount of love, care and craftsmanship into this piece for our friends over at the Star Wars Show as we do for all of our statues and we are assisting them to get these into the hands of their fans.

No coupons, discounts or reward points can be used for this product.

Daniel Pickett
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, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.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.
