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:

GAME OF THRONES Jon Snow and Ghost Statue

This is the new Dark Horse statue depicting Jon Snow (as played by actor Kit Harington) with his direwolf Ghost from HBO’s hit fantasy series Game of Thrones.

The spiritual bond between Eddard Stark’s illegitimate son Jon Snow and his direwolf companion Ghost is brought to life with this exquisite piece!

One quick glance at the statue and you’ll notice the quality right away, from Ghost’s snarl to the ruffles in Jon Snow’s armor and boots, and the base will have every fan of the HBO TV series Game of Thrones smiling, as it depicts Jon Snow trudging through the snow as a member of the Night’s Watch.

Features:

  • Meticulous detailing, crafted expressly for Dark Horse by the sculptors at Gentle Giant Studios.
  • Detailed statue measures 16-inches long x 13-inches tall.
  • Base depicts the snow under the Night Watchman’s feet.

If you’re a fan of the TV show or the George R.R. Martin A Song of Ice and Fire book series (and how can you not be!) you’ll love adding this Jon Snow and Ghost Statue to your collection.
