Gentle Giant Announces Star Wars Celebration / SDCC Exclusives and PGM Pre-Order Details

Gentle Giant has announced their first exclusives for the 2017 convention season. These two Star Wars exclusives will be available at both Star Wars Celebration and SDCC.

The first exclusive is a 1:6 scale minibust of the Ralph McQuarrie concept Han Solo. This continues their series of McQuarrie minibusts.

The second exclusive fits in with the 1:6 scale Jumbo series and is a twist on the formula, as this character was never available packaged alone…but for these convetions it will be. The Dianoga Trash Monster (originally included with the Death Star Playset) comes packaged in a vintage inspired collector’s box and includes foam trash. Gentle Giant got creative on this one and the result is worth it.

Both of these exclusives will be available for pre-order to Premier Guild members this week. Platinum members will be able to pre-order starting 10AM PST on April 5th, Gold members at 10AM PST on April 6th and Silver members at 10AM PST on April 7th.

Moebius Models at SDCC 2016

SDCC 2016 logoIn advance of the show, the folks at Moebius Models gave me a heads up on their SDCC exclusives and I was very impressed with what they shared – so I took some time from today’s schedule to swing by their booth and check out what they had.

Their exclusives were representative of their product in general as they had some amazing model kits on display – from a stunning USS Enterprise to a lovely Batgirl every shelf was filled with fantastic assembled models. While I accept that I don’t have the skills to build (well, paint) models well – if you do, then Moebius may have your next kit. And if you don’t, then you may get lucky and they’ll offer a fully painted version.

Jada Makes a Big Entry Into SDCC

SDCC 2016 logoThe saying “go big or go home” is one that Jada Toys apparently follows as for SDCC this year they went big. While their diecast Metals line is relatively new – they clearly have big plans for it based on the display at SDCC. Figures from X-Men, the Marvel cinematic universe,  DC, Power Rangers, the WWE, Mortal Kombat, Ghost Busters, Assassins Creed and more were all on display in a number of different sizes.

Take a minute to click through the gallery below and see all the die cast figures on the way from Jada Toys.
