February 10, 2007, Burbank, Ca. ? Gentle Giant Ltd. is ready to take the world and collectors by storm with an unprecedented five-city worldwide tour. While traveling the globe, the company will make a special, exclusive Star Wars Clone Trooper Commander mini-bust available at each of the five locations.
?Why should rock stars and movie celebrities have all the fun?? asked Gentle Giant Vice President of Product Development and Design Dev Gilmore. ?We figure it?s high time the collectibles industry had its own world tour, so we?re taking the lead and having a lot of fun. And of course, we want to invite everyone to come join us, so we?re making it worth your while thanks to some very cool, exclusive Clone Trooper Commander mini-busts.?
As amazing as the Clone Trooper Commanders are, Gentle Giant knows that a single exclusive does not a party make. So the company is offering multiple tour exclusives to go along with the specific location exclusives. The Gentle Giant Worldwide Tour 2007 Exclusives include a Yoda/R2-D2 Animated-style maquette and a special Bust-Ups 2-pack of Han and Luke in Stormtrooper armor. There will also be other exclusives at some of the five events, which will be announced soon.
As to those Clone Trooper Commanders? They?ll be available in the following cities:
* Event #1 -- Star Wars Celebration IV (Los Angeles, CA): Commander Gree * Event #2 -- Gentle Giant @ Blister (Tokyo, Japan): Commander Neyo * Event #3 -- Gentle Giant @ Forbidden Planet (London, England): Commander Bly * Event #4 -- San Diego Comic-Con (San Diego, CA): Commander Cody * Event #5 ? Special fifth location to be announced!: Commander Baraca
?This will be a lot of fun and a great opportunity for collectors to score some exclusive Star Wars collectibles,? said Gilmore. ?But we also know that not everyone can follow us around the world, and we figure everyone deserves a shot at these cool mini-busts. So we?ll be making 500 limited edition box sets of all five mini-busts, and those will be available exclusively on our web site at the end of the year.?
The Gentle Giant Worldwide Tour 2007 begins on May 24, 2007 at Star Wars Celebration IV in Los Angeles, Ca. and continues throughout the summer. Check the Gentle Giant web site at www.gentlegiantltd.com for tour updates and more information on tour exclusives.

Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
