You know something? Gentle Giant Ltd.. needs to be really carefully with what images they show to solicit their products. This is especially true for their surprisingly impressive Aurra Sing Mini Bust. If you judged this piece from the preliminary solicitation materials to promote the product, you would probably be swayed to keep it out of your collection. The paint job was off and it appeared that the facial structure of the actual Mini Bust was off by a great deal. Well, our opinions have been totally reversed and this is a reason why it’s so important as a consumer to check out online reviews like this so you get a clear picture of what product has been added inside of the box. The Aurra Sing Mini Bust definitely isn’t Gentle Giant’s best work, but it’s indeed excellent and we are happier about it now then when we first ordered it.
First and foremost, let us note to you how much detail has been added to the Aurra Sing Mini Bust. It’s rare when a Mini Bust is constructed from mixed media, but this is exactly the case for Aurra Sing. She has real beads in her hair, albeit too large, and her hair is cast from a [slightly] bendable material different from polystone so it has some give when you grab it to prevent it from snapping off and falling to the floor. Even the strap on her extra long rifle is manufactured from soft-goods and falls with a realistic drape down her back. Together, all of these parts work seamlessly to produce one of the more favorable Aurra Sing collectibles in recent memory. And what makes this even more exciting is that her portrait, something that we were very worried about previously, is very well done and decorated perfectly to bring this piece to life.
Status: This highly detailed mini bust, based on the original Lucasfilm costumes and props, was sculpted and painted by Gentle Giant Ltd. We hope you enjoy it.
