For a decade, Gentle Giant has released figures in its Star Wars Jumbo figures line, and in January 2022, the toy company releases the newest in the line – Grand Moff Tarkin.

While one of the major characters in Star Wars: A New Hope, Grand Moff Tarkin never got the action figure he deserved in 1978, despite being played by acclaimed actor Peter Cushing. This new Jumbo figure captures Tarkin in the vintage figure style, with bent arm to hold a new command staff accessory.

Modeled to resemble the Star Wars figures of old, but at an impressive 12-inch height, the Jumbo figure line has developed a dedicated fan base, and recently began to expand its offerings beyond the “original 96” Kenner figures. Each Jumbo figure features five points of articulation and comes packaged with a vintage-style cardback in a resealable clamshell.

Pre-orders are happening now, with the 12-inch figure is scheduled to arrive in January.
