@GentleGiantLtd Farmboy Luke #StarWars #ROTJ Jumbo Figure – #SDCC 2016 Exclusive
June 28, 2016

Today our friends at Gentle Giant announced their first SDCC 2016 exclusive!  The return of Jumbo Tatooine Luke!

Because YOU demanded it; the long sold out “Farm Boy Luke” is available again. Now with paint and packaging matching the original 1983 Return of the Jedi action figure. This low run edition was made for the die-hard collectors or those that missed the first release.  The are 2 versions that reflect the original release variations with the yellow hair and for the first time in the jumbo scale – brown hair Luke!


Most importantly; it’s for you, the fans and collectors that told us “I had this when I was a kid!”

The good news is that this figure is available again in EXTREMELY limited quantities (only 250 of each version) and if you are already a member of their 2016 Premiere Club you can preorder the figure!  The bad news is that their pre-order quantities are already sold through.   But there will  be some available at the Gentle Giant booth at SDCC.

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.
