The third Star Wars themed San Diego Comic-Con 2018 exclusive from Gentle Giant has been officially revealed today – a Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) Mini Bust from Return of the Jedi.
This mini bust, which is available for pre-order by current Platinum Premier Guild members right now (you need to be logged into your PG account to access the link), joins their previously-revealed SDCC exclusive Boba Fett ROTJ 12″ Jumbo Figure and Yoda McQuarrie (Concept Series) Mini Bust.
For more on the Star Wars themed exclusives that will be available to acquire (best of luck) at SDCC this year, visit our latest roundup post for a list of all the products that have been announced so far.
With Han Solo frozen in carbonite and held in Jabba the Hutt’s palace on Tatooine, Luke Skywalker led a mission to rescue his old friend. Now a powerful Jedi Knight, Luke tried to bargain for Han’s life but the crime lord refused. The team of rebels had to invoke plan-B!
For this brand new Comic Con exclusive mini bust, the artists at Gentle Giant LTD have captured the surprise, dramatic moment in Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi where new Jedi Luke Skywalker ignites his new hand-crafted GREEN bladed lightsaber for the very first time in the original trilogy! Luke Skywalker stands ready to take on the darkest denizens of the Tattooine criminal underworld and get all of his friends off his home planet for good!
You can also ignite Luke Skywalker’s green lightsaber! For only the second time in Gentle Giant history we have included a switch activated light-up Lightsaber in one of our mini busts! To celebrate the 35th anniversary of Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi this dynamic, new 1:6 scale Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) mini bust was designed, modeled and prototyped using top of the line 3D technology. Each collectible mini bust is hand-cast, hand-painted and hand-numbered with a limited edition Certificate of Authenticity.
The Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) mini bust will be available exclusively at our booth (booth #3513) at San Diego Comic Con July 18th-22nd. However, we have set aside a limited quantity of them for current members of our 2018 Premier Guild Collectors club. Even if you are not able to attend Comic Con 2018 you can still join the Premier Guild and order one (while available) and we will ship it to you after the convention*.

Tomorrow 6/27 at 9:30 am PST ordering will open for Gold (and Platinum) members. Orders for the final day of allocation for all Premier Guild Members will open at 9:30am PST on Thursday 6/28.
