Finally, Gentle Giant is teasing a mystery announcement exclusive to Action Figure Insider on April 21. Judging by the graphic, I suspect it being something Jumbo in nature and tied to The Empire Strikes Back. If I were to venture a guess, I’d say that it will be a Jumbo Kenner Tauntaun.
Gentle Giant has also announced their next release in the Vintage Life-Size Monument line – Darth Vader!

If you have been following along with our recent episodes of The Realm Recap, you’ll be familiar with the fact that I recently acquired a gorgeous custom 6’ Prototype Boba Fett from talented customizer Chris Veach.

So, after some quick prototyping (pun intended) I came up with a nice design to complement Chris’s work. Click on through for a complete gallery of images.
