Official Press Release
After the hugely successful Commander Bly bust in 2007, Forbidden Planet is thrilled to announce the launch of their second Gentle Giant exclusive, taking place at the London Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, WC2, on Friday 24th October from 5:00pm
This awesome Galactic Marine will only be available from Forbidden Planet â€“ it canâ€™t be pre-ordered, the first sales will be made on the day! We will also have two other great exclusive items â€“ the Forbidden Planet Exclusive Coruscant Guard Trooper and Bronze Boba Fett Classic!
And weâ€™ll have a representative from toy wizards Gentle Giant, signing the limited edition merchandise available on the day.
AMAZING IN-STORE COMPETITION!
On the day, there will be a once in a lifetime in store competition to be made into a fantastic Gentle Giant Star Wars figure.
One lucky winner will have their head scanned using equipment that has also been used on movies stars such as Angelina Jolie and Daniel Radcliffe.
That image will then be taken back to LA and sculpted into a totally unique model.
Runners up in the competition will also have their head scanned, and receive a certificate showing their own 3D image.
Gentle Giant is the world leader in the development of 3D technology used in the creation of highly detailed limited edition statues and busts for releases such as Hellboy Animated, Halo, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.
The Forbidden Planet London Megastore is the largest of its kind in the World. Itâ€™s the true home of Sci-Fi and Cult entertainment, the heart of Geek Chic.
