Blue Snaggletooth 12” Jumbo Vintage Kenner Figure $80
License: Star Wars
Edition Size: 2,000 Pieces
Item Number: 80227

Blue Snaggletooth is the informal name of a rare Kenner action figure from 1978. Released as part of the Sears “Star Wars Cantina Adventure Set”, the Snaggletooth figure was intended to represent the character who would later be known as Zutton. However, the only reference used for the figure was a partial black and white photograph of the alien’s head. The body was unknown, so the sculptors and artists improvised, creating a tall alien with a tight blue spacesuit and silver boots. From 1979 onward, including later Sears releases of the cantina set, all versions of Snaggletooth were changed to a red color, with bare feet and hands and shorter legs.

Thanos Mini Bust $75
License: Marvel
Edition Size: 500 Pieces
Item Number: 80224

Thanos. The Mad Titan. Deviant Eternal. Wielder of the Infinity Gauntlet. One of the oldest villains in the Marvel Universe, Thanos was introduced during the Bronze Age of comic books.

Hand-crafted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant, this high-quality polystone mini bust depicts the modern comic book-style Thanos and his ultimate weapon, the Infinity Gauntlet. From the crags on his chin to each individual embedded gem in the Gauntlet, no detail has been overlooked. Hand-painted and individually numbered, this convention exclusive is a must-have for all True Believers. Make Mine Marvel!

Gentle Giant has been a staple at Comic-Con for many years, bringing their brand to the forefront of companies that offer quality statues.

This year they are bringing a few unique items. Here is what is announced thus far.

Admiral Motti Mini Bust – $80
Edition Size: 1,200

Admiral Motti was head of the Imperial Naval operations aboard the Death Star. Motti was overly-confident in his belief that the Death Star was invulnerable to any threat posed by the Rebel Alliance. He was even arrogant enough to openly question Darth Vader for his failure to locate a secret Rebel base. For this, Vader Force-choked Motti, only to have Grand Moff Tarkin intervene at the last moment, ordering the Dark Lord to relent. This highly-detailed mini bust, based on the original Lucasfilm costumes and props, was sculpted and painted by Gentle Giant Ltd. We hope you enjoy it.

Each COA has been signed by Admiral Motti himself, actor Richard LeParmentier, and Richard will be appearing at the Gentle Giant booth at San Diego Comic Con 2012 to sign the actual bust! We hope you’ll join us. Check future blog postings or the SDCC Convention Guide for details.

Edition Size: 300 Pieces
Item Number: 11753


THE PALE MAN; who gorged on excess was banished to a den in the netherworld. Unable to feast on the banquet before him, his body shriveled and his humanity withered away. His only sustenance was the blood of innocents. A meal he relished in hunting himself. He kept a watchful eye over a dagger with a hilt of gold, for he feared it to be the only object that could cause him harm. In truth it’s presence kept him alive. Once the blade was removed, he collapsed unto himself and faded from existence.
