SDCC 2010 Coverage: Gentle Giant

We’ve activated the Gentle Giant Gallery and loaded with fresh images showcasing several new mini busts like 2-1B (limited to 1980 pieces) and the PGM Snow Bunny Padme and animated maquettes but the best has got to be the 12″ Vintage Figures that are, in a word, AWESOME! Check them out now!

You can also view these photos on our Facebook page where you can leave your feedback/comments as they’re added!

Vintage Wave One Found at Target

According to a trusty source at Coreplanets.com, at least one St. Louis area Target has started putting the new vintage figures on the pegs. They seem to be ringing up fine at the registers and are priced at $7.99.
So, if you don’t have a Target in your area and haven’t found these yet, it might be worth your while to swing by your local Target to see if you can score these for yourself.
