Praetorian Guard 1:6th Scale  Star Wars: The Last Jedi Statue

The Praetorian Guard were an elite squad of First Order warriors assigned to guard Supreme Leader Snoke.  There eight sentinels that divided into four pairs and each pairing had a different helmet and unique weapons.  These crimson armored warriors are reminiscent of the Emperor’s Royal Guard, but unlike those stoic sentinels these elite fighters spring into action when their master is threatened.   This particular guard is armed with a Bilari Electro-Chain Whip.  An electro-plasma filament is threaded through the whip’s articulated segments and houses enough power to kill and opponent.  The whip, at rest, is solid like a staff and can be used like a bludgeon in combat. 
Designed and sculpted using the original film costumes and on-set scan data, our 1:6th scale Praetorian Guard is as authentic as you can get. Every detail of the character and costume, every armor segment, every fold, every ridge of the mesh on the helmet have been captured in this high-quality, limited edition, hand-painted 1:6th scale resin statue from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.   Consistent with Gentle Giant’s long running line of 1:6th scale statues, this piece is packaged with a hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity and complimented by a gloss black display base.

Executioner Trooper 1:6th Scale Star Wars: The Last Jedi Statue

The Executioner Troopers are a specialized unit from within the First Order.  An Executioner Trooper wears a specific armor with black carbon-finish accents and the unmistakable black stripe on their helmets.   The carry powerful and deadly laser axes that when activated can swiftly separate limbs from their owners.  They stand ready to take commands and fulfill their duty.  If you see one coming, you know your fate is sealed.

Designed and sculpted using the original film costumes, props and on-set scan data, our 1:6th scale Execution Trooper is as authentic a reproduction as you can get. Every detail of the character, costume and weapon have been captured in this high quality, hand-painted 1:6th scale resin statue from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The Execution trooper is striding towards you and captured the moment before he ignites his laser axe, recreating a powerful moment from Episode VIII.   The statue comes with a gloss-top base that matches our long running 1:6th scale statue line and a hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

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.
