Gentle Giant has a slate of new Star Wars products coming to San Diego Comic-Con (July 24-27), and StarWars.com is excited to reveal one item with an especially historic significance: the Ralph McQuarrie-style Luke Skywalker mini bust. Depicting the hero as he appeared in McQuarrie’s original concept art for Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, this mini bust shows a very different-looking Luke, but with details that would inform his final design and the designs of other characters. As a collectible, it offers a special glimpse into the visual evolution of Star Wars. It is digitally sculpted, cold cast in high quality polystone and hand-painted, and is individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity. The mini bust measures 6.5″ x 7.25″ x 5″, and will be available for $85.00; check out a full preview in the gallery below!
Also available at SDCC will be a mini bust of Jek Porkins, the fan favorite Rebel pilot, and an oversized AT-AT driver based on the original Kenner toy.
Look for all these and more at Gentle Giant’s booth at SDCC!
