As you can see there’s a great variety of product for fans. Let’s focus on a few of the items above… like the Michonne bust (bottom center above) from THE WALKING DEAD. The master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd. bring you the 2013 San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Michonne Mini Bust, hand crafted using the original life cast of actress Danai Gurira and resized to 1/6th scale, no other collectable can claim to be as screen-accurate. Cold cast in only the highest quality polystone and featuring a solid metal katana, this hand painted, limited edition bust depicts Michonne ready to take on all comers. Each of these exclusive busts are hand-painted and include a matching certificate of authenticity.

Maybe you’re more of a STAR WARS fan. Not to worry, they got ya covered. 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, the new C-3PO mini bust (top left above) 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 Mr. 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.

And below you can see some of the items for Premium Guild members.
