One of Mos Eisley‘s most iconic creatures comes to life for a new Halloween tradition!
When it comes to mini-busts, you can’t beat Gentle Giant. From Darth Vader to Jango Fett, the collectibles retailer has done them all – but for their latest offering, they are aiming to kick off a new Halloween tradition.
Earmarked as the first of many Halloween inspired additions to the line, Gentle Giant has unveiled their latest addition to the mini-bust collection – Lak Sivrak from the iconic Cantina sequence in Star Wars: A New Hope.
The awesome 7″ bust will be a web exclusive release, and will be available directly from the Gentle Giant Web Store and will set you back a staggering $99.99. Check out these awesome images:
Here’s the official line:
It’s the start of a Halloween tradition! The first in an annual series of Halloween releases, the Lak Sivrak™ 1/6 scale Web Exclusive mini-bust depicts the Shistavanen™ who first appeared in Star Wars: A New Hope™, and became a fan-favorite due to his lycanthropian appearance. Measuring approximately 7 inches, tall, this resin bust is a limited edition, and will ship in a full-color box with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
Pre-orders are already open for Premier Guild Members. General pre-orders open today at 9:00 AM PST/12:00 PM EST.
Okay, this bust is nothing short of a work of art. I was distraught when Lak Sivrak was digitally removed in the Special Edition of A New Hope and replaced with a more docile looking alien. It is most welcome to see the character given the respect he deserves and restored to prominence.
Kudos, Gentle Giant.
