Now available in Gamestop retail locations is the Gentle Giant Star Wars The Force Awakens – First Order Snowtrooper 1/6 Scale Classic Bust. This bust is a Gamestop Exclusive that is not available online at this time (but should be soon). We only ever saw this bust way back at San Diego Comic-Con 2016. Since then, Gentle Giant hasn’t released any details on the bust. This past week, the bust began to show up in stores. It took me a few trips, but I was finally able to purchase one that was not already opened by a Gamestop employee. The Snowtrooper Bust is limited to just 4,000 pieces. Each one is hand cast, hand painted and hand numbered.
We have a photo gallery and quick review. You can check them out after the jump.
Gentle Giant Star Wars The Force Awakens – First Order Snowtrooper 1/6 Scale Classic Bust
- Solid construction
- Great sculpt
- Realistic looking armor
The bust comes packaged in a collector friendly box. The packaging showcases photos of the bust on the front and sides. On the back, there is information o nthe First Order Snowtroopers, as well a a screen shot from the film. The bottom of the box features the hand numbered edition size. The bust itself is packed in a styrofoam tray, which is also hand numbered. The bust is wrapped in plastic, for additional protection. The snowtrooper bust requires no assembly and is ready for display immediately after removing it from the packaging. The underside of the statue base features hand numbering and a trading card sized certificate is also included.
The bust, which is 1/6 scale, stand just about 6″ tall from base to top of the helmet. The Snowtrooper bust itself is cast in a mixture of materials. The main body appears to be polystone or polyresin, with a poly-urethane type material used for the armor. The armor pieces are extremely reflective and bright white. The bust features a small number of hand painted areas, such as the visor, detailing on parts of the armor and the backpack. Outside of that, the bust is a beautiful bright white, much like the previously released original trilogy Stormtrooper bust. The bust presents a clean look with little to no scuffing or battle damage. The classical base includes a First Order logo. The bust has a nice bit of weight to it, with a high end finish. It looks great displayed with other Gamestop Classic Star Wars Busts.
The bust sells for $79.99 and can be purchased in stores only for now. Check out some highlight photos below and the full gallery after that.
