A Diamond Select Toys release! The most hotly anticipated TV show of possibly ever is here, and DST is celebrating with a bust of its titular star, The Mandalorian! This half-scale resin bust measures approximately 10 inches tall and features detailed sculpting and paint applications. Limited to only 1,000 pieces, it comes packaged with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Designed by Joe Allard, sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios. NOTE: This item is currently exclusively available for ordering by the Star Wars Premier Guild; join the Guild before Wednesday, November 27, 2019 to get access! Any remaining inventory will be offered to non-members on November 27. (SRP: $150.00)
Earlier this year, Gentle Giant Ltd. showed off their first entry in the Star Wars Premier Collection line of statues, Dreamer Rey. Depicting Rey sitting on the sands of Jakku, gazing up at the stars, pondering her origins and dreaming of escape, the statue was shown with both helmeted and unhelmeted heads. Now, GG Ltd. is excited to announce that the helmeted head will be the next Premier Guild exclusive!
While the unhelmeted head version will be available to all customers, only Gentle Giant Ltd. Premier Guild members will be able to order the helmeted version. Additionally, the head on Premier Guild version will be interchangeable, and the unhelmeted head will be included so it can be displayed in either configuration.
Pre-orders are now open on GentleGiantLtd.com for both versions, although only signed-in Premier Guild members will be able to view and order the exclusive version. If you are not a Premier Guild member, it’s not too late to sign up, order Dreamer Rey and, if you’re a Gold or Platinum member, choose your free gift!
