Star-Lord Mini Bust – $85

Peter Quill is not your typical human-alien hybrid superhero.

As Star-Lord, Peter has lead armies, saved universes and fought toe-to-toe with the likes of some of the most infamous villains in the Marvel Universe. Now leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Star-Lord is a force to be reckoned with, and his legend is just beginning.

Gentle Giant Ltd. is proud to bring you the Star-Lord Mini Bust! Never one to turn down a fight, Star-Lord is depicted wielding his twin blasters in the throes of combat. This kinetic limited edition bust, digitally sculpted by our master artisans, is rendered using the highest quality polystone and hand painted.

Kili Dwarf Mini Bust – $75

Kili, brother of Fili and nephew of Thorin, is one of the thirteen dwarves to accompany Bilbo and Gandalf on the quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from the great dragon, Smaug.

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, 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.
