2 New Star Wars Statues from Gentle Giant: Dengar and Han in Carbonite!

Posted by August 16, 2018 Comment

Star Wars and Gentle Giant go together like peanut butter and jelly. They do some of their best work on the Bounty Hunters, and the two new releases up for order now complete that line. Dengar is the last but certainly not least of the six to get a statue. Cast in polyresin and sculpted with screen-accurate details, Dengar looks every bit the part of the grizzled hunter that he is. He will run you $179.99.

Also available is a Han in Carbonite in 1:8 scale. This one was sculpted by using actual scans of the carbonite block from The Empire Strikes Back. This one finishes out the line at seven statues. You can check them all out in this awesome pic!

The Han in Carbonite will run $159.99. Premium Guild Members can also but these both as a bundle for $259.98, which means you will get Han for half off! But hurry — that deal expires tomorrow, August 17th. Check out pics and details of both below. You can preorder them here.

Dengar is an effective bounty hunter. While some hunters prided themselves on finesse and style, Dengar preferred firepower and destruction to capture his targets. Boba Fett enjoyed working with Dengar and held him in high regard due to his proven record of accomplishment in hunting down prey.

In Gentle Giant LTD’s newest Collector’s Gallery statue, we see a battle-hardened Dengar guarding a supply crate full of additional firepower with his trusty Valken-38 carbine rifle in hand. Hossing all of that heavy firepower from one end of the quadrant to the next has taken its toll but it has been worth it to establish his reputation as one of the best hunters in the galaxy.  Dengar has seen it all and has lived to tell the tale; you can see every bounty etched into his face, every struggle to capture his prisoner scratched into his armor. He missed the bounty for Solo, but he has gone back to his armory to reload and he will get his next mark… dead or alive.

 

Dengar is the sixth statue in Bounty Hunter 1:8th Collector’s Gallery line celebrating over 40 years of the Star Wars universe. Each limited edition, hand-painted piece is layered in character detail and is cast in high quality polyresin with crisp, screen accurate details. This statue also comes individually numbered with a matching Certificate of Authenticity.

Carbon-freezing is an industrial process that encases highly pressurized gasses inside of solidified carbonite. In Cloud City Darth Vader sets a trap for young Luke Skywalker to be frozen and tests the process on his prisoner Han Solo. The smuggler turned hero survived the freezing process, in perfect hibernation, and Vader hands captain Solo over to the bounty hunter Boba Fett to take back to the gangster Jabba The Hutt.

 

Han Solo In Carbonite is the seventh statue in Bounty Hunter 1:8th Collector’s Gallery line celebrating over 40 years of the Star Wars universe. This accurate sculpture comes from scans of the actual carbonite block prop for the ultimate attention to detail. The Han Solo’s frozen, pained expression is perfectly captured in this carbonite block, with a base that matches the alcove where the frozen Han Solo hung as a prized possession in the Mighty Jabba’s palace. Bring Han home and he can be a prize in your collection too. Pre-Order now to complete your 1:8th scale bounty hunter collection, have as a stand-alone piece or make sure your Boba Fett collector’s gallery statue is not lonely. Each limited edition, hand-painted piece is cast in high quality polyresin with crisp details. This statue comes individually numbered with a matching Certificate of Authenticity.
