Gentle Giant was also getting in on the Star Wars celebration as they unveiled two new collectibles. Up first is a new Jumbo Kenner figure with the retro styled Darth Vader, who also recently received a Jumbo Kenner Concept design figure. This will be a perfect companion piece to show off that unique Ralph McQuarrie design. Standing 12" tall, the figure commemorates the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. The figure is an exact replica of the original 3.75" Kenner release with vinyl cape and extendable orange lightsaber. The Darth Vader Jumbo Kenner Action Figure is priced at $80.00 and can be found here.
Gentle Giant made sure to keep the force balanced as they reveal a new Star Wars Rebel Pilot mini-bust. Biggs Darklighter is back, and he is ready to take on the whole galaxy with this limited 1,500 piece statue. The legendary Star Wars pilot will also have interchangeable parts showing fans his rugged good looks under the helmet. Biggs Darklighter stands at 6" tall, priced at $120, and pre-orders are live and can be found here. Make sure you get these Star Wars collectibles ordered before it is too late as they are very well designed and excellent pieces for fans, old and new.
