The folks at Gentle Giant released these two images for their upcoming 2010 San Diego Comic Con exclusives on their Twitter
page today. Shown below in our GALLERY
are the McQuarrie Vader Concept Mini Bust and 12" Vintage Kenner Stormtrooper.
Darth Vader (McQuarrie concept) – Mini Bust
Limited Edition of 2500
Following the 2009, sold out Boba Fett concept mini-bust is the new original concept art Darth Vader, based on the drawings of Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston. McQuarrie is often credited with developing the look and feel of the Star Wars trilogy. McQuarrie and Johnston worked side by side to develop this version of the evil overlord. Though it is uniquely different than the final film version; the piece still holds true to the final feel of Vader’s timeless helmet and black armor.
This Darth Vader Mini-bust will be sold exclusively at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con. The piece features 3 different interchangeable heads and is a highly collectible limited edition.
