Gentle Giant Reveals Last Two Star Wars SDCC Exclusives

Gentle Giant revealed their last two SDCC exclusives – both from Star Wars. The McQuarrie Han Solo concept minibust was shared with Star Wars Celebration and a Holographic Princess Leia statue was announced today by Yahoo movies.

Details of the Holographic Princess Leis statue are below:

“Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi… you’re my only hope”

It’s the phrase that spurned a farm boy to be a hero, made an exiled Jedi come out of hiding and ignited our imaginations for the past four decades.  To help celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope, one of the most iconic moments in modern film history is captured here, in this Collector’s Gallery statue from Gentle Giant Ltd., when a holographic message from Princess Leia Organa, that was smuggled inside the memory banks of a feisty droid, is played first for a dumbfounded Luke Skywalker and then again for the message’s intended recipient, Obi-Wan Kenobi.
 
Sculpted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd. the holographic Princess Leia Collector’s Gallery statue features a light up function and button activated sound clip to help you even in your most desperate hour.   This limited-edition statue comes hand numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity. 
Limited edition of 770 pieces.
 

Han Solo Ralph McQuarrie Concept Series Mini-Bust

Ralph McQuarrie’s early designs of Han Solo display a vast difference from that of the final version as seen in Star Wars: A New Hope. Designed initially as a Lightsaber wielding, bearded Jedi Knight, this mini bust explores a fascinating look into the conceptual development of one of science fiction’s most roguish smugglers.

Designed, modeled and prototyped using top of the line 3D technology. The 1:6th scale Han Solo (McQuarrie Concept) mini bust is hand cast, hand-painted and hand-numbered with a limited edition certificate of authenticity.
Limited edition of 750 pieces.
