General McQuarrie Celebration VII Exclusive Mini Bust

Limited to 1 per customer account. Duplicate orders will be cancelled.
After the destruction of the Death Star at the Battle of Yavin, General Pharl McQuarrie was personally selected to head up construction of a new Rebel base on the ice planet of Hoth and placed second in command of the facility upon its completion. Echo Base offered the alliance a much needed chance to rest, re-equip and re-group after the Yavin campaign.

The respite was short lived however when the bases location was discovered by the Imperial fleet and quickly fell under a vicious siege led by Darth Vader and his elite ground forces. McQuarrie was instrumental in coordinating a delaying defensive action against the overwhelming Imperial forces and afforded the vast majority of personnel and equipment time to escape and fall back to a rallying point.

Portrayed by legendary concept artist Ralph McQuarrie for a brief cameo in The Empire Strikes Back, this exclusive General McQuarrie mini-bust from Gentle Giant Ltd. is a celebration of his immeasurable contributions in shaping the Star Wars universe. Limited to only 500 pieces, this piece features an exacting likeness of Mr. McQuarrie with fine details including cold-weather issue command parka, command gauntlets, insulated watch cap with com unit, face wrap and anti-glare goggles.

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 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,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.
