New Items from Gentle Giant for July


Gentle Giant has provided details on their new products for the month of July. All these products should be available in the 2nd quarter of 2014. Check below for quick descriptions and an image gallery. Then, after the jump, you can see detailed descriptions.

Bilbo Baggins – One of the most requested and anticipated characters in our new Hobbit line. We’re sure this one is going to be a must-have among collectors.

The Governor – Fans of The Walking Dead will be clamoring to get this depiction of Season 3’s main antagonist. Order directly from Gentle Giant’s website and receive an additional accessory – an interchangeable “post-Michonne” head featuring a removable eyepatch!

Padme Amidala Statue – This statue is another product inspired by the artwork of Adam Hughes, and is significant because although it’s done in a realistic style, it’s based on the animated incarnation of the character. We’ve done these crossovers before, and we look forward to continuing them.

Thor Hammer Bookend – According to legend, only those judged as worthy could lift the hammer of Thor. Nothing like using an immovable object to hold up your favorite media then, eh?

Whisper Statue – From our new Honey Trap line, we’re proud to bring you Whisper. This gorgeous quarter-scale statue is incredibly piece, featuring a variety of mixed materials in its design. True statue collectors will be able to appreciate the complexity and level of workmanship this piece required.

Season Three of The Walking Dead reminds us that Walkers aren’t the only to be feared in this terrible new age. Phillip Blake, known as “The Governor” to his followers, rules a camp of survivors at Woodbury prison with an iron fist. Considered to be a “Jim Jones-type” by those who know of him, there is very little reason to trust this charismatic, narcissistic and clearly disturbed leader.

Bilbo Baggins was your typical run-of-the-mill middle-aged Hobbit. He enjoyed his five meals a day (plus snacks), quality pipe weed and his nice, quiet existence. Everything was perfect. Until, that is, there was a knock at the door…
Thrust against his will into a brand new world full of adventure, excitement and danger, Bilbo is forced to rise to the occasion as he faces death, dismemberment and devouring at the hands of goblins, orcs and the Great Dragon, Smaug. Little does Bilbo know, but the results of his adventure set even greater events in motion, starting with his discovery of an old ring.
Digitally sculpted using photo reference directly from the set of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and cold cast in the highest quality polystone comes the Bilbo Baggins Mini Bust from Gentle Giant Ltd! Every detail – from Martin Freeman’s likeness as this incarnation of the titular hobbit to the runes engraved on Sting, his magical Elven blade – has been captured and recreated here with the utmost accuracy. No other collectable even comes close to our level of screen-accuracy. Each hand-painted bust is individually numbered and comes with a matching certificate of authenticity.
