Life Sized Kenner Figures
« on: July 20, 2013, 06:30 PM »
Gentle Giant is taking their 12" versions of the Kenner figures to a whole new level and have shown a life sized Stormtrooper at SDCC!  It will be made of fibreglass and rumour has it the price tag is a whopping $1500-$2500. 

Apparently, Vader is also in the works, including his vinyl cape and telescoping saber.  ;D

OK, so the price is nuts, but I'd love to get my hands on the Vader...

Where's his blaster?

For $1500, they better not half-ass anything on these.

If I get Vader I'm going to wander around with the vinyl on.

I'd consider buying a life sized Kenner R2-D2.

Especially with sensorscope.   ;)
