Gentle Giant is now taking preorders for the PG Member Exclusive Maz Kanata Mini Bust. This exclusive version includes an alternate outstretched arm which holds Luke’s lightsaber.
Heads up variant hunters. It appears that there is in fact a variant for the holograph Leia that is included with the exclusive 6″ Black Series Obi-Wan Kenobi. A post from the 6″ Black Series Collectors Group on Facebook shows the example of her with the painted face and hands. Which do you prefer?
Thanks to @cerbres_child on Twitter for the alert.
UPDATE: The person on Facebook apparently customized theirs to have the painted face and hands. No variant exists. Crisis over.
