With a nod, one final salute, and a somersault, Luke Skywalker sprang into action, catching his lightsaber and igniting the bright green blade to fight Jabba’s goons aboard the desert skiff.
Today, The Star Wars Show showcased the latest from Gentle Giant, which has captured the moment with an immaculately detailed, limited edition mini bust coming to San Diego Comic-Con in July!
For the second time in the company’s history, the Jedi Luke Skywalker Mini Bust has been specially modified with a switch to activate the lightsaber with a brilliant glow. In celebration of the 35th anniversary of The Return of the Jedi, the artists designed and modeled this dynamic, new 1:6 scale Luke using cutting-edge 3D technology and added the personal touches of hand-casting, hand-painting and hand-numbering each of the 1,000 pieces.
Each mini bust also comes with a limited edition Certificate of Authenticity and will be available at Gentle Giant’s booth #3513 for $120 at the convention, which takes over San Diego from July 19 to July 22 this year! A limited quantity have also been set aside for members of the Premier Guild Collectors Club, available for pre-order this week.
