This past weekend was the first ever “Gentle Giant Day” at Blast from the Past in Burbank. Ca. Unfortunately I was not able to attend as planned because my wife gave birth 2 days before, but I made sure we had the event covered for AFi. I sent my friend Chris Tallman, Mr. Thunderman on Nickelodeon’s The Thundermans to take pictures and report back on the event.
Blast From the Past just recently moved to their new, larger location so it was the perfect place to host this sort of event. The day had it all, there was cosplay, give-aways, trivia contests and new product reveals!
Fans that did not attend BlizzCon the previous week got to see the newly announced WARCRAFT line of statues based on the upcoming feature film:
Fans of the Gentle Giant Jumbo lines got to see some new products first hand that they had only gotten to see solicitation photos of previously. Some were so new they were even in unpainted prototype form. We got to see new offerings from their Jumbo Batman Animated Series line, Marvel Secret Wars line and the Super Powers line.
We got a look at the newly solicited Morgan bust (with alternate hooded head) from AMC’s The Walking Dead:
Fans of the classic Star Wars trilogy got to see the new Classic Star Wars bust line:
And FINALLY what we were all waiting for… we got our first look at GG’s first Star Wars: The Force Awakens bust: the First Order Stormtrooper!
Also congratulations to both winners in our Gentle Giant Day Trivia Contest!
Winner#1 with the MOST right answers is – RO KOHLI
Your JUMBO prizes will be on their way to you very soon from our good friends at Gentle Giant!!
Thank you again for Chris Tallman for covering the event for us! Keep your eyes here on AFi for all the latest news and reveals from the good people at Gentle Giant ltd!
