You can pre-order this now at SWS.com and get 10% off and FREE FedEx Ground home delivery shipping on these six items until May 1

SWS.com updated the terms for the shipping. Now it'll cost you 1˘ WTF?

Even with 10% off and $0.01 shipping their mini-busts are about $2 more than I pay (after tax) for them at my local comic shop.

If any Premiere Guild members aren't interested in the Captain Rex offer, I'll buy the bust from them (for a reasonable price). PM me if you can help!

I'm selling Malak and Clone Wars Obi-Wan mini-busts.  I decided to stop collecting EU busts before they onslaught begins.  So if anyone is interested PM me.

THE REPUBLIC COMMANDO INVASION BEGINS!

Over the years Gentle Giant has received many requests for the Delta Squad Clone Troopers from the Lucasarts video game Republic Commando. So it comes with great pleasure that we can grant the wishes of our dedicated Star Wars collectors world wide!

As the invasion begins, The Republic Commandos (shipping 4th quarter) will be offered to 4 locations across the globe, as well as directly to Gentle Giant's Premier Guild Members. There will also be a strictly limited edition box set of all 4 busts made available exclusively at www.GentleGiantLTD.com

Delta Squad was an elite heavily armored clone commando unit that carried out demanding missions for the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. The unit played instrumental roles in the Battle of Geonosis as well as in the lead up to the Battle of Kashyyyk. Consisting of four hardened, well trained commandos;
 
BOSS, also known as RC-1138, and Delta-38, was a clone commando in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars and Imperial commando of the Imperial Army. He was nicknamed Boss by his fellow clones, and was the sergeant of Delta Squad.

FIXER, also known as RC-1140, and Delta-40, was an elite clone commando in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. Although he hated the use of nicknames, he was known as Fixer to the other commandos in his squad, because of his talent for fixing and slicing all things mechanical.
 
Unlike his fellow squad members had developed distinct personalities, Fixer was a gruff, by-the-book clone. Fixer was often the one urging his squad onwards during a mission.

SEV, also known as RC-1207 and Delta-07, was a clone commando and a sharpshooter in Delta squad during the Clone Wars. He was often referred to by his nickname of Sev, especially by his squad mates, and was well known for his sadistic sense of humor. Sev, alegedly, was given this name due to his love of severing an enemy's limb or body part. Sev aided the Republic in a number of missions, fighting on planets such as Geonosis, Coruscant, Skuumaa, Mygeeto, Dorumaa, and finally Kashyyyk, where he went missing in action. Sev completed many Black Operations for the Republic--covert missions typically involving activities that were highly secret due to questionable ethics and legality.

 SCORCH, also known as RC-1262, or Delta 62, was a clone commando in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. Among the commandos of Delta Squad he was often referred to as Scorch, he was considered to be Delta Squad's wise guy, and was often chided by RC-1140 known as Fixer, the squads unofficial second in command.

However, most of Scorch's comments were aimed at Sev, and he was not afraid to talk back. Scorch was the squads demolitions expert, and loved annihilating anything that came in reach.

GentleGiant should just offer their stuff up unpainted. Sculpts are usually good, but the paint...  :-X
