Gentle Giant, Ltd. is bringing several exclusive busts and action figures to this year’s San Diego Comic Con, including versions of Luke Skywalker with blonde and brown hair.

Batman First Shot Prototype Super Powers Jumbo Figure

Kenner was responsible for some of the greatest, most collectible toys the 80’s had to offer. 1984’s The Super Powers Collection was no exception. The hugely successful line showcased DC’s mightiest heroes and villains! Batman, The Joker, Green Lantern and more were all represented.

The Batman figure is 12-inches tall, comes with a cloth cape, is limited to 250 pieces, and has a $80.00 price tag. With only 250 pieces available worldwide, this is going to be a hard one to get a hold of.

Superman First Shot Prototype Super Powers Jumbo Figure

All toys begin with the PROTOTYPE! This Superman figure replicates the appearance of a first look or “first shot” action figure as it would have been developed during the manufacturing process. A true rarity that is highly sought after in the toy collecting world!

Superman also comes with a cape, and is limited to 250 worldwide. The figure also has the $80.00 price tag.

Chewbacca McQuarrie Concept Mini Bust

Ralph McQuarrie’s early designs were the essential building blocks that helped shape the Star Wars universe. There is no question, McQuarrie’s Chewbacca concept drawings were some of his best.

Farmboy Luke Brown or Yellow ROTJ Jumbo Figure

Because YOU demanded it; the long sold out “Farm Boy Luke” is available again. Now with paint and packaging matching the original 1983 Return of the Jedi action figure. This low run edition was made for the die-hard collectors or those that missed the first release.

Most importantly; it’s for you, the fans and collectors that told us “I had this when I was a kid!”

Digitally scanned from original 3 ¾” Kenner figure and enlarged to 1:6 scale, no detail has been overlooked. Roto-cast and injection molded from durable plastics, this fully-articulated jumbo figure includes a faithfully re-produced plastic yellow lightsaber that extends from his right arm.

To further capture the vintage vibe, Gentle Giant packages their figures on an era-accurate Return of the Jedi backer card using all original photos and artwork. Always designed with the collector in mind, the figure comes in a re-sealable plastic outer clam shell for years of enjoyment and display.

Collectors around the world have noted hair color paint variations of their original action figures. Making either “Yellow” or “Brown Hair” Luke Skywalker figures highly sought after collectibles. Both are now available here in “jumbo” scale, but act fast, only 250 pieces of each will be produced!

It’s really too bad the run is so limited, it means the price will skyrocket online once the convention is over.
