Gentle Giant Announces SDCC Exclusive Rocket Raccoon Mini-Bust!



Every year since obtaining the Marvel license for mini-busts in 2011 Gentle Giant has released an animal-related San Diego Comic-Con International exclusive.  First in 2011 was Squirrelpool.  In 2012 came Thor Frog.  In 2013 we were given Spider-Ham.

But in 2014, with the Guardians of the Galaxy movie opening one week after Comic-Con, one Marvel animal was the obvious choice for this year’s exclusive–Rocket Raccoon.

Unlike the previous animal releases, however, Rocket is a full-sized mini-bust standing almost 5 inches tall, and coming in at the regular $70 retail price.

This item will be available for sale (and, with the upcoming film, likely really hard to get) at San Diego Comic-Con, but if you’re in Gentle Giant’s Premiere Guild you can pre-order him now and have him shipped to your door!  Even if you’re going to the convention, given the heat on this furry guy this summer I highly suggest pre-ordering and quickly–Gentle Giant’s McQuarrie Luke Skywalker Mini-Bust has pre-sold out and I expect Rocket will do the same!

Pre-Order Alert: eFX Collectibles Biker Scout Helmet and Pistol



Up for pre-order now from eFX Collectibles is their Legend Edition Scout Trooper Helmet & Pistol!  This is described by eFX as “the most accurate reproduction of this incredible helmet produced to date.”  The master molds for the helmet were made from the original master tools ILM used to make the helmets used for Return of the Jedi, and then an original ILM decal sheet was used to make the markings and symbols on the helmet.  Finally the helmet is made in ABS, just like the on-screen prop helmets.

Additionally this helmet comes with a replica Biker Scout Pistol, cast from an original, screen-used prop!

The price is $899 and, limited to 500 pieces, this is sure to sell out fast.  So if you want yours head to eFX’s web site now!
