Last up in our Star Wars Black Series SDCC galleries is a 2 Pack of Luke Skywalker and Rey from The Last Jedi. This is a kick off box set featuring figures that will be dropping in the main line later this year when the movie items release. The set features great profile artwork as seen on Black Series boxes but in grey and black instead of red and black, and has a fold out book style box for the two of them. Luke comes with his cloak and Rey has her staff, blaster and Luke’s lost lightsaber. They are pretty standard Black Series offerings so read on to check out detailed pics!
Next up in our look at SDCC exclusive is the Star Wars Black Series Grand Admiral Thrawn box set. This gives us our first Thrawn figure in the 6 inch scale along with a trophy room reminiscent of his office as seen in Star Wars Rebels. The box folds out to display his conquests in all their glory. Included are a “holy grail” chalice, Commander Gree’s helmet, a Jedi Temple Guard helmet, a lightsaber, a kyber crystal, Kalikori totem, and two Ysalamiri mounted above the doorway. There are also two podiums for you to place these on. Thrawn himself comes with a sidearm and his signature white uniform to contrast his blue skin. As with the SDCC speeder – this is another great con exclusive because you get the extra goodies if you jump in on the con set, but won’t be left out because the core Thrawn figure should release down the line in main line packaging. We’ve done up over 60 HD shots, read on to check it all out!
Next up in our look at SDCC 2017 exclusives is the Star Wars Black Series Luke Skywalker and X-34 Landspeeder set. The piece offered the Landspeeder early in a premium deco, featuring premium paint and detail along with moving parts in the engine that won’t be available in the mass release. The Luke Skywalker figure is updated from his original Tatooine farm boy release with a new head sculpt, poncho, different tunic material, rifle and hat. It comes in a pretty hefty box with windows on the top and front. All in all it’s a great convention exclusive because it doesn’t omit the item from the masses, but gives us a little extra for grabbing it at the con.

Gentle Giant has opened up pre-orders for their new Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back – Bossk Collectors Gallery Statue. The 1/8 scale statue will stand at 9.5″ tall. It is scheduled for release in the fourth quarter of the year. It’s priced at $159. You can pre-order it Here. Read on for the new photos.
The bounty hunter known as Bossk has been a fan favorite ever since his debut in 1980. His popularity could not be contained to his brief appearance on the deck of the Executor in the Empire Strikes Back (and in the background of Jabba’s sail barge in Return of the Jedi). Bossk soon started filling out his robust backstory in both the Star Wars: Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels animated series, taking on the role of mentor to the young, orphaned Boba Fett. The artists a Gentle Giant take you on a journey to see the moments just following the events of the death of Jabba, we find Bossk standing over the shattered throne of Jabba. At his feet, a chain left by Jabba’s escaped prize. What will he do next? Pursue the rebels or look for his next bounty? Bossk is the third statue in our new 1:8th Collector’s Gallery line, celebrating 40 years of the Star Wars universe. Each limited edition, hand-painted piece is cast in high quality polyresin with crisp details. This statue also comes individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity.
Each year, Gentle Giant offers their Premier Guild Members an exclusive Holiday themed item. Last year, it was a BB-8 Bust wrapped in Christmas Lights. This year, they are offering a new 1/6 scale deluxe mini bust featuring K-2SO from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The former Imperial Droid includes a red and white scarf, and is holding a Death Star tree ornament. You will need to be a Premier Guild Member to pre-order the collectible. See details below and read on for the photos.
While most of us know that the re-programed Imperial security droid K-2SO can be a bit cranky and sarcastic, he can also be festive as evidenced by the Gentle Giant Ltd. 2017 deluxe holiday Mini Bust. This year we celebrate our 13th annual tradition of making a holiday item available to our Premier Guild members with our holiday offering: the K-2SO Holiday Deluxe Mini Bust. K-2SO is bundled up in his holiday scarf and is holding a silver ornament in the shape of the dreaded Death Star. Built from original film models and 3D data, K-2SO’s hulking stature and intricate inner workings have all been captured in this high quality, hand painted bust that is sure to brighten up your Star Wars collection not just for the holidays, but all year long! This K-2SO Mini Bust features a removable scarf and swappable arm holding a blaster so you can display him not in “holiday mode” if you desire. Each limited edition piece is numbers with a matching certificate to ensure authenticity. Made exclusively for Gentle Giant’s collector club, The Premier Guild, K-2SO is expected to sell out quickly. Pre-order before August 11th to be guaranteed this bust will be in your collection. K-2SO will make an excellent addition to your Star Wars collection or as a special gift this holiday season!
