Three New Star Wars Items Available for Pre-Order this Month from @GentleGiantLtd
August 10, 2018
This month with our new pre-orders we have all of the Empire Strikes Back bounty hunters accounted for in our 1:8th scale Collector’s Gallery statue line.  Dengar joins the rest of the crew and their prize, Han Solo in Carbonite round out our bounty hunter focus we have been working on for the past year.   We have special bundle pricing for both of these new pieces for our Platinum Premier Guild Members for a limted time.  See below for the details!
Our other new item made it’s debut just a few weeks ago at SDCC 2018, our Porg Bookends set.  These were a big hit at the show and you will want them for your shelf as well.  Get a set before they fly away… or at least try to.

Dengar Collector’s Gallery Statue

Dengar is an effective bounty hunter. While some hunters prided themselves on finesse and style, Dengar preferred firepower and destruction to capture his targets. Boba Fett enjoyed working with Dengar and held him in high regard due to his proven record of accomplishment in hunting down prey.
 
 
In Gentle Giant LTD’s newest Collector’s Gallery statue, we see a battle-hardened Dengar guarding a supply crate full of additional firepower with his trusty Valken-38 carbine rifle in hand.  Hossing all of that heavy firepower from one end of the quadrant to the next has taken its toll but it has been worth it to establish his reputation as one of the best hunters in the galaxy.    Dengar has seen it all and has lived to tell the tale; you can see every bounty etched into his face, every struggle to capture his prisoner scratched into his armor.  He missed the bounty for Solo, but he has gone back to his armory to reload and he will get his next mark… dead or alive.
Dengar is the sixth statue in Bounty Hunter 1:8th Collector’s Gallery line celebrating over 40 years of the Star Wars universe. Each limited edition, hand-painted piece is layered in character detail and is cast in high quality polyresin with crisp, screen accurate details. This statue also comes individually numbered with a matching Certificate of Authenticity.

Han Solo In Carbonite Collector’s Gallery Statue

Carbon-freezing is an industrial process that encases highly pressurized gasses inside of solidified carbonite.  In Cloud City Darth Vader sets a trap for young Luke Skywalker to be frozen and tests the process on his prisoner Han Solo.  The smuggler turned hero survived the freezing process, in perfect hibernation, and Vader hands captain Solo over to the bounty hunter Boba Fett to take back to the gangster Jabba The Hutt.
Han Solo In Carbonite is the seventh statue in Bounty Hunter 1:8th Collector’s Gallery line celebrating over 40 years of the Star Wars universe. This accurate sculpture comes from scans of the actual carbonite block prop for the ultimate attention to detail.  The Han Solo’s frozen, pained expression is perfectly captured in this carbonite block, with a base that matches the alcove where the frozen Han Solo hung as a prized possession in the Mighty Jabba’s palace.  Bring Han home and he can be a prize in your collection too. Pre-Order now to complete your 1:8th scale bounty hunter collection, have as a stand-alone piece or make sure your Boba Fett collector’s gallery statue is not lonely. Each limited edition, hand-painted piece is cast in high quality polyresin with crisp details. This statue comes individually numbered with a matching Certificate of Authenticity.

Porg Bookends

A Porg is a small, flat-muzzled avian that likes to flock about the rocks and roosts in cliffs of secluded areas.  In the latest set of sculptural bookends from Gentle Giant Ltd., we see two adorable, inquisitive Porgs down in the lowlands of the hidden island of Ahch-To.  They have happened upon Luke Skywalker’s recently discarded lightsaber and do not know what to make of it.   These two innocent Porgs are clueless that they are residing in an unknown region of the galaxy where the Jedi Order was founded, they just know there is something shiny there that wasn’t there before.  They have no idea they are at the crossroads with the last of the Jedi Knights…
Crafted using only the highest quality Polystone, each Porg bookend is weighted to grip and keep your books upright and in pristine condition. The Star Wars: The Last Jedi Porg Bookends are perfect for holding comics, graphic novels, books, DVDs, video games or ancient, discarded Jedi texts. Every feather, every rock and every glassy, soulful eye has been painstakingly sculpted by the artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd.  Each bookend comes with an optional bookend extender for holding taller items. Each limited-edition hand-painted bookend set comes individually numbered and is packed with a matching Certificate of Authenticity.
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.
