There is a primary rule that Mini Bust collectors forget to follow and that would be to never judge a Mini Bust until you have the production piece in hand. If we followed this rule we might add a few years of happy blissfulness to our lives. If there was one Mini Bust that sent collectors’ tops blowing through the roofs it would have to be Kit Fisto. If you have judged this piece just by the promotional images Gentle Giant Ltd. sent out to the media, there would probably be no reason on earth to pick up the piece. The lighting deceitfully allowed us to believe that this Kit Fisto piece had yellow skin. And the lighting was so bright that is washed out all the finely etched details like the creases and crevices in his facial structure and hands leaving an impression that the artist who sculpted this piece may have never seen a reference image ever of the Nautolan. We even held off ordering the piece because we thought it looked so bad that we would be able to find it for pennies on the dollar on eBay or something. We obviously didn’t and we could kick ourselves for waiting because the Kit Fisto Mini Bust is excellently rendered and gorgeously painted. Gentle Giant Ltd. should be ashamed for releasing these poor images of the Kit Fisto Mini Bust that clearly hurt its sales.
We hope our photo gallery can provide the justice this piece deserves. Kit Fisto is a tremendous work of art. As huge Kit Fisto fans, we have critically inspected this Mini Bust from head to toe and the more we ogle it, the most impressed we become. Kit Fisto as a character has been the source of much confusion because he appeared differently in Episode II and Episode III. A new design for the mask of the character was done for the release of Revenge Of The Sith and quite honestly was a vast improvement from his Episode II likeness. But licensees seemed to be having trouble matching up the likenesses to the appropriate film. Hasbro had the same exact problem with their phenomenal 2011 TVC Kit Fisto (VC29) action figure. A brilliant sculpt was designed based on his appearance from Revenge Of The Sith, but he was placed on an Attack Of The Clones card back with an image of his likeness from that film instead. Guess what? Gentle Giant Ltd. made the same exact mistake. The Kit Fisto Mini Bust is based on his Episode III appearance, yet the source imprinted on the box and the bio on it both describe Attack Of The Clones and his role in that film. Is it blind leading the blind?
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.
