Star Wars Zam Wessel Statue – $269
Zam Wessel is a shape shifting bounty hunter, who was subcontracted by the notorious bounty hunter/mercenary Jango Fett. Zam’s bounty was none other than Senator Padme Amidala, in Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Zam’s first attempt on the Senator’s life was the destruction of her starship. Unfortunately for this changeling, the Senator evaded the explosion and was soon taken under the protection of the Jedi. To carry out the second attempt of her intended target, Zam has at her disposal the venomous Kouhun Worm. As Padme was being guarded by Master Obi Wan Kenobi, and his Padawan, Anakin Skywalker, Zam attempted a second time, only to be foiled by the Jedi, and captured. Before she had a chance to answer the Jedi’s questioning, she was eliminated by her employer, Jango Fett. As she cursed Jango with her last breath, her face reverted to it’s original Clawdite form. Digitally sculpted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd., the Zam Wessel Statue features the changling assassin in her highly detailed costume holding her sniper rifle and container of Kouhun Worms. Zam also includes 2 interchangeable portraits, one humanoid portrait, and one Clawdite. Crafted using only the highest quality polystone, each limited-edition hand-painted statue comes individually numbered and is packed with a matching certificate of authenticity. May the Force be with you.

Marvel Zombie Kingpin Mini Bust – $107.99
The Kingpin of crime, AKA Wilson Fisk, has been a major villain in the Marvel Universe for nearly 5 decades. Though he is not a super powered villain, what Fisk lacks in powers he makes up in intelligence and sheer brutality. Underneath his obese appearance is the musculature of an Olympic weight lifter, which he utilizes with horrifying results, during the rare occasion when he has to get his hands dirty.
In the Marvel Zombies series, the world has been infected by a virus that turns the living, into rotting corpses, who retain their intelligence and abilities. These creatures continue to spread the virus by biting their victims. In the 3rd Marvel Zombies book, the Kingpin finds a way to clone uninfected humans, creating a replenishable food source for the infected, and thus building a new empire.
Digitally sculpted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd., the Marvel Zombie Kingpin features the zombified Kingpin of Crime holding his signature walking stick, and enjoying a vintage, yet grotesque, glass of red. Crafted using only the highest quality polystone, each limited-edition hand-painted mini bust comes individually numbered and is packed with a matching certificate of authenticity.
