While there are some obvious absentees (*cough*, Hasbro, LEGO *cough*) when it comes to companies producing exclusive items for Comic-Con International‘s ‘virtual con’ – SDCC@HOME – there are some companies that are seriously stepping up and making their mark.
And it’s looking like, once again, Gentle Giant Ltd. is deliberately and systematically targeting my wallet as a die-hard Skottie Young fan with the announcement of a SDCC 2020 MARVEL ANIMATED-STYLE ELEKTRA STATUE which, while not mentioning Skottie by name, is based in design off his variant cover.
Elektra joins a very tasty, detailed sculpt bust of the original Joe Johnson and Ralph McQuarrie concept art design of STAR WARS‘ own nefarious Mandalorian bounty hunter, Boba Fett, which comes in a stunning 1/6 scale bust.
The Elektra clocks in $49.99 in a 250 piece limited run, while the Boba Fett bust is $120 in a 500 piece run – the latter will be offered up to Gentle Giant Ltd. Premier Guild members first so don’t expect this item to be lingering around too long. It’s stunningly gorgeous and, as such, will be highly sought after.
They’re going to be made available for purchase during SDCC@HOME (Thursday 23rd – Sunday 26th July; Preview Night, Wednesday 22nd July 2020), with the Boba Fett being available online from this Monday, but fans can pre-order now to get in the front of the line…
From the Gentle Giant Ltd. press release:
TWO NEW SDCC 2020 EXCLUSIVES REVEALED!
San Diego’s Comic-Con@Home is almost upon us, and Gentle Giant Ltd. is launching two new exclusive items! One is an all-new Star Wars Concept Bust of the original Mandalorian, Boba Fett (!), and the other is a variant on an eagerly anticipated Marvel Animated-Style Statue – Elektra! Read on for details, then go to GentleGiantLtd.com to pre-order!
Before there was Boba Fett, there was the idea of Boba Fett, and designers Joe Johnston and Ralph McQuarrie’s vision of the bounty hunter retained much of its magic on the way to the screen.
This 1/6 scale bust is based on their concept, with two interchangeable heads, and comes packaged in a full-color box with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Limited to 500 pieces. Only on GentleGiantLtd.com, it will be offered to the Premier Guild first — Platimun Friday, Gold Saturday, Silver Sunday and general public on Monday! $120.00
Elektra celebrates the summer in her white outfit in this highly limited statue! Based on the variant cover artwork of Marvel Comics, Elektra Natchios jumps for joy, sais in hand, and stands approximately 5 inches tall. She comes packaged in a full-color box with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Limited to 250 pieces. A Gentle Giant Ltd. release! Only on GentleGiantLtd.com! $49.99
