Gentle Giant Announces Upcoming Star Wars Products!

While Spring is yet to fully rear its much-welcomed head, Autumn is already gearing up to take all your money! That’s because our friends over at Gentle Giant Ltd. are going to be releasing multiple Star Wars products, and let’s just face the facts that you’re going to NEED them… at least that’s our reasoning for constantly purchasing Jawa-related merchandise. G.G. has been branching out into various types of collectibles recently, and we’re glad to see the continuation of the 12″ Kenner-style vintage Star Wars figures. What really sets these off for us is the huge blister card that each figure is placed on!

Here’s all the info, and a few snazzy pics of G.G.’s upcoming releases including the previously mentioned 12″ figures, a new bust of a fan-favorite character, and a statue of one of the coolest looking Sith to ever exist:
