Gentle GiantStar Warsstatues

Well here is something I didn’t expect to see for at least another six months – the Slave Leia animated maquette.  Yup, it’s the tooned up version of the Star Wars heroine in her costumes that inspired many a fanboy fantasy.  It’s from Gentle Giant, the same group that is making the other Star Wars animated statues This version of Leia has been, by far, the most requested character in Gentle Giant’s Star Wars Animated series. Cast in high-quality polystone, this limited edition statue comes hand-numbered, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. This is all well and good for the

Doctor HorribleJoss Whedonstatues

Sadly, it does not sing, and it is limited to 1,000 pieces, but the Dr. Horrible Sing-Along Blog Animated Maquette looks awesome! Cast in professional-grade resin and painted by hand, Dr. Horrible is pictured in his moment of triumph, holding his Freeze Ray aloft in one hand and shaking his fist at the world. He stands over 6-inches tall – 9-inches tall, if you include his weapon. For $69, Whedon fans will probably snap these up before you get a chance to check your bank account balance to see if you can afford it. via Quantum Mechanix

Battlestar Galactica may be over, but the fun of being one of the last survivors of the human race being hunted down by cyborgs continues with Quantum Mechanix Little Frakkin’ series.  A large number of companies are taking properties and tooning characters up to create a unique line of statues that are sure to start a conversation when displayed on the bookshelf.

Fans going through withdrawal symptoms from missing Stargate SG-1 can ease that feeling of loss with a very cool looking Teal’c maquette done in an animated style. The first in a new line of “Hero-Sized” animated maquettes, Teal’c is sculpted as we first meet him in the Stargate SG-1 pilot episode Children of the Gods: First Prime of Apophis and deeply troubled by what he has seen and done in his god’s name. The maquette stands just over 9-inches high, and is limited to only 1,000 units.  This is the first in a line of animated maquettes that Quantum Mechanix
