First Look at Gentle Giant’s SDCC-Exclusive 40th Anniversary Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader Mini Busts
Posted on June 21 2017
As revealed today on The Star Wars Show, Gentle Giant has two special exclusives coming to San Diego Comic-Con 2017 in celebration of Star Wars‘ 40th anniversary: stunning mini busts of Luke Skywalker (in X-wing pilot gear) and Darth Vader, as they appeared in the original Star Wars.
Both limited-edition busts are in a 1:6 scale, made of hand-painted polyresin, and come individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity by artist Brian Rood. But it’s the details — like the scoring on Luke’s helmet, or how the molded cloth drapes over Vader’s chestplate — that will make these long remembered, as the Sith Lord would say. In a clever design addition, both busts feature their character’s lightsaber on the base — right above the Rebellion and Galactic Empire insignias for Luke and Vader, respectively.
The busts will be available every day of SDCC (July 20-23) at the Gentle Giant booth (#3513) for $100 each, and Brian Rood will be signing each day, as well. Premier Guild members can pre-order the Luke mini bust, Vader mini bust, or a bundle right now. Check out the galleries below for a closer look!
