Limited-Edition-Gentle-Giant-STAR-WARS-Admiral-Ackbar-Magnitude-Mini-Bust-SDCC-2013-Exclusive

At this years San Diego Comic Con Gentle Giant will be releasing an awesome ‘Magnitude’ mini bust of Admiral Ackbar.

Features:

  • Limited Edition of 500 pieces
  • Available at SDCC 2013 only
  • based on the artwork by Steven Daily
  • includes printed wooden box with a 4 x 6 limited edition lithograph print by Acme Archives
  • comes with a hand-numbered certificate of authenticity and bottom stamp.

Okay, so what happens if you’re a collector who really, really wants this but can’t attend SDCC 2013?

The answer rests in attempting to acquire it by a vendor offering it for pre-sale.

What’s that you ask? That’s when people take orders for an item such as this and then go to the event and pick it up on your behalf.

As I write this post three vendors are currently offering just that via Ebay. Prices vary. You can check which one’s are still available for pre-order via the search link below:
