The fearsome bounty hunter. The intimidating guard of the Emperor. The….cute and sweet superhero love tale. Gentle Giant’s offerings this month feature an interesting array from the Star Wars and Marvel universes.
Spider-Man and Mary Jane Marvel Animated Statue
The romance between Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson is one of the most beloved love stories in the history of comics. For over 50 years we have followed pining, the unrequited love, the budding romance and eventually the marriage of our friendly neighborhood Spider-man and the Marvel Universe’s Top Model.
This piece, our first animated statue to feature two full characters, is based on the artwork from the Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #1 variant cover. Here we see a young wall-crawler hanging upside down and giving a ring to his favorite “Little Red-Haired Girl’ in a… precious moment that is sure to capture the heart of all comic book fans.
Zuckuss Collector’s Gallery Statue
Zuckuss is the Gand bounty hunter that teamed up with 4-LOM to hunt Han Solo and collect the bounty for the Empire and as well as Jabba the Hutt. Zuckuss is sometimes known as “The Uncanny One” in the underground world of bounty hunters because of his tracking skills. He has an innate Force-sensitivity and has developed his skills after years of being a findsman. One way or another he always gets his mark.
The artists a Gentle Giant take you on a journey to see the moments just following the events of the death of Jabba, we find Zuckuss on Tattoine, at his feet, a chain left by Jabba’s escaped prize. Zuckuss is still on the hunt, reading the clues, catching the trail with his GRS-1 Snare Rifle in hand. Where Zuckuss goes, can 4-LOM be far behind?
Zuckuss is the fourth statue in our new 1:8th Collector’s Gallery line (and 3rd in our Bounty Hunters line), celebrating 40 years of the Star Wars universe. Each limited edition, hand-painted piece is cast in high quality polyresin with crisp details. This statue also comes individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity.
