Gentle Giant have sent out a notice to their Premier Guild Members advising that memberships for this year will be launching next week, but before they do, have given a sneak preview of the 2012 Premier Guild Gifts!
There are five gifts in total, the following three coming from Star Wars:
Republic Commando Mini Bust with Light-Up Visor
Elite soldiers of the Grand Army of the Republic, the Clone Commandos were crafted by the Kaminoans for war. Based off of the genetic template of the infamous bounty hunter Jango Fett and indoctrinated into the Mandalorian culture, Republic Commandos worked in highly coordinated teams of four operatives, each with their own individual specialties, to complete missions with objectives too complex for the average Clone Trooper, or requiring more firepower than the average ARC Trooper can muster. When Order 66 was issued, the Republic Commandos’ objective turned from defending the Republic to hunting down and executing the Jedi, a task they completed with ruthless efficiency. Soon after the fall of the Republic, the surviving units from the Clone Wars were rechristened Imperial Commandos.
Painstakingly crafted and cast in high quality poly-stone, The Republic Commando Mini Bust also features a light-up visor! This strictly limited edition hand numbered collectible comes complete with a matching certificate of authenticity.
Rebel Fleet Trooper
Loyal soldiers of the Alliance Navy, Rebel Fleet Troopers serve on ships large and small throughout the galaxy. In spite of the incredible odds they face in taking on the evil Galactic Empire, their unwavering devotion to the Rebellion gives them the inner strength and will to do whatever it takes to win the war, even if it means sacrificing their own lives.
Hand crafted and rendered at 1/6th scale in high-quality polystone, this mini bust was created using digital scans of authentic costumes and the DH-17 blaster to ensure the utmost accuracy.
Gamorrean Guard Kenner 12′ Figure
Just like they were when you were a kid, only BIGGER! Gentle Giant continues on with their new line of vintage Star Wars action figure reproductions with the release of the Gamorrean Guard!
Digitally scanned from mint 3 3/4” Kenner originals and reproduced in scale to the rest of the jumbo Kenner line. Nothing has been overlooked. Roto and injection molded and made of durable plastics, this fully-articulated jumbo figure includes a faithfully reproduced blaster.
That’s not all, this classic Kenner creation comes packaged on a 1983 Return of the Jedi-inspired blister card, featuring original artwork, in a re-sealable plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display!
Details about the 2012 Premier Guild Memberships will be revealed next week.
