  1. It was announced today that Diamond Select Toys will be acquiring Gentle Giant Ltd.. A move that will certainly bolster DST on the statue market front. See the press release below: Both Diamond Select Toys and Gentle Giant Ltd. have long been known for delivering high-quality busts, statues and action figures to collectors worldwide. Now, fans can get the best of both worlds, as DST finalizes the purchase of select assets of Gentle Giant, taking over manufacturing and distribution of many of the company’s key lines. Beginning February 1, Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles, LLC, will assume operations for all of Gentle Giant’s existing licenses, and release previously developed and newly created busts, statues and scaled-up vintage action figures. Any in-progress and future products will be offered to retailers through the Previews catalog, published by DST’s sister company Diamond Comic Distributors. Gentle Giant’s collector club, the Premier Guild, will continue to operate, with exclusive items for members and reserved access to certain products. DST has pledged to fulfill any outstanding exclusives and rewards to current members, and to expand on the club’s scope going forward. “This is a great moment for DST,” said Diamond Comic Distributors owner Steve Geppi. “The unification of many of Gentle Giant’s licenses and built-in fan base with DST’s sales and distribution channels is a recipe for success. Two wonderful companies uniting talents to produce the best of the best. I am confident the final product will be well received by both companies’ wonderful supporters and customers.” "It is a great honor for Gentle Giant to continue our strong creative relationship with Diamond,” said Karl Meyer, VP of Entertainment at 3D Systems. “With great pleasure, I am personally thrilled to have DST uphold the Gentle Giant Ltd brand and work with our artists in bringing entertainment magic from the screen to the collectors’ hands." “I have been a longtime fan of Gentle Giant’s products, and I am excited to continue their legacy,” said DST president Chuck Terceira. “Once we’re up and running, we plan to deliver seamless service of existing product lines, so expect to see the same level of quality, with the added bonus of DST’s broad distribution.” In addition to resin busts and statues, DST produces Gallery PVC Dioramas, Select action figures, Minimates mini-figures, Vinimates vinyl figures, D-Formz PVC figures, prop replicas and vinyl banks. Diamond Select Toys & Collectibles, LLC, was formed in 1999 by sister company Diamond Comic Distributors as a source of collectibles for all ages, developed primarily for the collector’s market. It has enjoyed relationships with a number of content producers, including Lucasfilm, Disney, Marvel, Warner Bros., Sony, CBS, Legendary, PopCap, EA and many more. Here is a FAQ list that DST has released as well: What will change when DST takes over Giant Gentle? Very little. Most products already developed will move forward, and new products will be developed to follow them. Many of the existing designers, sculptors, painters and factories will continue to be involved. You can expect to see some new artists that DST has worked with in the past start to work on traditional Gentle Giant Ltd. products. Convention attendance will remain largely the same, and the Premier Guild will continue to operate as it did. Will Gentle Giant be changing its name? Gentle Giant Studios are not involved in this acquisition and will continue to operate, performing sculpting services for a variety of clients, including DST. The Gentle Giant Ltd. brand will be joining the DST family. Will DST take over Gentle Giant’s licenses? Including Star Wars? Yes, DST will take over the majority of the Gentle Giant Ltd licenses and will continue the existing lines that Gentle Giant has started, releasing already-developed items and developing new items. Each license will be reviewed and discussed, and we will update you as soon as possible on their status. What should fans of Gentle Giant look forward to? A continuation of everything that they know and love about the company, with the addition of some new product categories, an injection of new artistic talent, and more ways to get the products they care about.
  2. New Star Wars Exclusives Coming to Celebration 2019!Gentle Giant Ltd. Is traveling to Chicago, IL this month to attend Star Wars Celebration April 11-15, and they’re bringing two popular Clone Wars characters – Hera Syndulla and Darth Maul – as this year’s exclusive offerings! The captain and heart of the Ghost crew, Hera Syndulla was a gifted pilot and leader. While Hera was a strong commander – and especially adept at dogfighting with TIE fighters – she was also warm and nurturing. The Twi’lek could bring out the best in her team, which consisted of very different personalities, making them believe in themselves, each other, and their struggle against the Empire. Hera will be made available as a 1:6 scale resin bust, for a price of $120.00. A deadly, agile Sith Lord trained by the evil Darth Sidious, Darth Maul was a formidable warrior and scheming mastermind. He wielded an intimidating double-bladed lightsaber and fought with a menacing ferocity. Though he fell in battle against Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Zabrak from Dathomir would prove to be much harder to destroy than originally believed. Darth Maul will be depicted with his Force-constructed spider legs in a 1:8 scale Collector’s Gallery statue, available for $200.00. Star Wars Premier Guild members will be able to pre-order the busts beginning March 25. All others can come by the Diamond Select Toys/Gentle Giant Ltd. booth between April 11 and 15th! See you in Chicago!

  8. Gentle Giant has two new statues coming based on the new Star Trek: Discovery TV series. Michael Burnham in Starfleet Long-haul Space SuitStar Trek: Discovery Collector’s Gallery Statue - $185 Commander Michael Burnham was born in 2226 to human parents that were killed by Klingons. She was raised by the Vulcan ambassador, Sarek, and his human wife on Vulcan, where she studied at the Vulcan Science Academy. All her life, she felt the pressure to prove herself to her father and to be more Vulcan, however her mother often counseled her to not lose touch with her humanity. Burnham joined Starfleet and served aboard the U.S.S. Shenzhou under Captain Philippa Georgiou as her First Officer. The captain became Burnham’s mentor, surrogate mother and dear friend. The Shenzhou encountered a strange object in space that their sensors could not scan. Burnham was determined to find out the object’s origin, so she devices a plan, dawns a Starfleet long-haul space suit and goes out into deep space to lay eyes on whatever it was that destroyed their probe. What she finds in the darkness of deep space catches her completely off guard and changes the course of her life. Gentle Giant’s artists worked directly with production to obtain original concept models, reference photos and authentic production files to accurately match and recreate the costume worn by actor Sonequa Martin-Green for our first Star Trek: Discovery Collector’s Gallery 1:8th scale statue. The detail in this piece has to be seen to be believed and looks stunning from every angle. Every detail of the costume has been captured from the insignia shaped mesh, to the clear visor, to the jets, vents and scribe-lines of the suit. You can display her alone or have her facing off against our in-scale Klingon Torchbearer statue (also available for pre-order). This limited edition statue of First Officer Michael Burnam in her Starfleet long-haul space suit is hand-cast, hand-painted and hand-numbered with a limited edition Certificate of Authenticity. Klingon Torchbearer Star Trek: Discovery Collector’s Gallery Statue - $195 The TORCHBEARER is a Klingon ceremonial position, whose role is to activate the Beacon of Kahless to summon the 24 Great Houses foretold in the great Klingon prophecy. The Torchbearer must be a fierce warrior and be of noble birth. Rejac was the Klingon Torchbearer that faced off against Starfleet First Officer Michael Burnham of the USS Shenzhou in the pilot episode of Star Trek: Discovery. Gentle Giant’s artists worked directly with production to obtain original concept models, reference photos and authentic production files to accurately match and recreate the costume worn by the Torchbearer for our second Star Trek: Discovery Collector’s Gallery 1:8th scale statue. The team at Gentle Giant Studios have a personal connection with this character as we helped 3-D print and prototype the costume used in production. The detail in this piece has to be seen to be believed and looks stunning from every angle. Every detail of the costume, designed by Neville Page and Glen Hetrick, has been captured from the intricate armor plating, to the Klingon insignia to his Klingon bat’leth. You can display the Klingon Torchbearer statue alone or have him facing off against our in-scale First Officer Michael Burnham statue (also available for pre-order). This limited edition statue of the Star Trek: Discovery Klingon Torchbearer is hand-cast, hand-painted and hand-numbered with a limited edition Certificate of Authenticity. Look for these to be released in Q2 of 2019. Check out images for both statues below.
