This is the one we've been waiting for! Gentle Giant has just announced their 12" Jumbo Kenner Vintage-Style figure for San Diego Comic-Con 2013... Yak Face with Power of the Force coin.

McQuarrie Concept C-3PO bust (Gentle Giant)

Ralph McQuarrie’s early designs of C-3PO are uniquely different from that of the final screen version. Based on original pre-production illustrations for Star Wars: A New Hope, this mini bust displays a fascinating look at McQuarrie’s conceptual development of the beloved protocol droid.

Digitally sculpted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd. using McQuarrie’s original artwork as reference, this deluxe mini bust features two interchangeable heads, representing two separate concepts for the iconic droid. Cold cast in high quality polystone and hand painted, each limited edition bust comes individually numbered and includes a matching certificate of authenticity.

Retro Kenner-style Alien Figures by Super7

Here is the press release about the upcoming "ReAction" (Retro Action) Alien figures by Super7. I am very excited about these perhaps because they are so similar to Kenner's Star Wars figures and have that classic nostalgic look! In addition, there will be a set of 2 "prototype/salesmen samples" that will be available at Comic-Con!

In 1979, prototypes for 3 ¾” action figures for the ALIEN film were developed but never manufactured.  Through our network of industry and collector contacts, Super7 has unearthed reference material and original 34-year-old prototypes and will now make these “lost toys” a reality. Under authorization from 20th Century Fox, Super7 will produce the full series of ALIEN toys as part of our ReAction Figure Series (Retro-Action).  Each is stylized exactly as items from the “golden age” of action figures with approximately five points of articulation, accessories, and period-authentic blister card packaging.

Preorders for the ALIEN ReAction Figures will begin at San Diego Comic Con….and fans who preorder a set of the five ReAction Figures at our Super7’s booth will get more than they ever expected – a full Early Bird Package containing:
An ALIEN figures display stage (including original artwork created in the style of 1970s packages), Space Club Membership Card, ALIEN photos, and a sheet of ALIEN stickers! The five ReAction Figures will be complete with accessories and on Blister Card packages -
* THE ALIEN (“BIG CHAP”) – with removable transparent dome, extendable jaws and glow-in-the-dark head!
* RIPLEY – with Flame Thrower
* ASH – with Motion Detector
* DALLAS  – with Flame Thrower
* KANE in NOSTROMO SPACESUIT – with removable helmet and transparent visor

Gentle Giant's Deluxe Boba Fett with Tin Box

Bravo Gentle Giant, Bravo! This Boba Fett appears to be the nicest Fett to date and packaging in a collector's tin. It will be available only at San Diego Comic Con and is sure to fetch the attention of fans both casual and hardcore! Includes removable limbs to switch poses. I love the addition of wookie scalps!

Revolver Girl Arctic 6ix - SDCC 2013 Exclusive

Revolver Girl Arctic 6ix Edition is a must have! Kuso Vinyl has hit a home-run with this vinyl figure! It reminds me of Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider (at the end of the movie in the snow scene!) Last year's Comic-Con version was the 'Barenaked' Edition and it was pretty cool, but judging by the mock-up of other versions below, the best is yet to come and the Arctic version might be my favorite!

Mass Effect Bronze Normandy SR-1 Comic-Con Exclusive

The San Diego Comic-Con exclusive reveals continue to awe fans and this next announcement is drool worthy!
