    SDCC10: Super Sized STAR WARS

    Kenner classics get a new lease on life...














    San Diego Comic-Con coverage brought to you by Collectibles Insurance, Big Bad Toy Store, Sekaido, and Monkey Depot.


    If you were a child of the 70's, chances are very good that you owned at least one Kenner Star Wars figure. Gentle Giant is tapping that nostalgia with a "new" collection of super sized vintage figures. 12 inches tall in height, these recreations faithfully capture the look (and limited articulation) of the beloved originals.


    Fans attending Comic-Con had the opportunity to pre-order the first release, the Stormtrooper, as a SDCC exclusive. No word on if it will yellow over time like the original, but it was displayed in a MASSIVE blister card idientical to the classic. News at Comic-Con also revealed that Boba Fett will be offered as a Star Wars Celebration V exclusive. Pre-orders for Collector's Club members are currrently being accepted for Boba at gentlegiantltd.com. Like the Stormtrooper, he is priced at $85. Any remaining stock after the show (don't expect any) will be offered to the public.

    Other figures on display expected to receive the 12-inch Gentle Giant treatment included Greedo, Chewie, Vader, Luke, Leia, Walrus Man, Hammerhead, Tusken Raider, even an in-scale Jawa with plastic cape (Star Wars enthusiasts know those are rare in mint condition)!
