We’d imagine that there is no collector middle ground with the Gentle Giant Ltd. Maquettes line. It is probably a safe bet to say that you either love them or are indifferent about them. But as far as we’re concerned, we think they are about the greatest things since sliced bread. There are the manifestation of artistry and they offer something fresh, new and exciting in a hobby that can desensitize you over time when things become too repetitious. Gentle Giant Ltd. is very committed to this lineup and it is there goal to prevent the line from becoming dull and boring. They only release pieces periodically and many of them are exclusive in nature. In fact, most have been reserved as retailer exclusives in recent memory. The awesome Entertainment Earth exclusive is the next in line for collectors to appreciate and we have to admit it may be one of their finest efforts. While similar to other licensees’ takes on the Battle of Endor, Gentle Giant Ltd. puts a twist on it by adding a Scout Trooper instead of a Stormtrooper getting pummeled by Ewoks.
The Scout Trooper (Ewok Attack) Maquette is a lovely Maquette. If you have read our other reviews on this line, you probably know how obsessed we are with what deems a Maquette a Maquette. By definition, a Maquette is an artistic interpretation of a character, but functionally it is one piece. In other word, the Maquette itself or any of its parts cannot be removable. If they are, they it is a faux Maquette (for lack of a better word). The Princess Leia Organa As Boushh Maquette is not a true Maquette because it comes with removable parts. But thankfully the Scout Trooper (Ewok Attack) Maquette is and a big part of the reason we love it is because of that. The Scout Trooper is trying to fend of three Ewok warriors. Sadly, the packaging doesn’t identity who they Ewoks actually are. We tried to compare them to action figures Hasbro has already made and we’re pretty much at a loss at who they may be. You’ll have to use your own creativity to determine who the fuzz balls are. The Ewoks are adorably angry and hanging on to the Scout Trooper like a tree in the jungle. Even the Scout Trooper’s blaster pistol won’t save him from certain doom.
Status: Co-designed by Lucasfilm and Gentle Giant Studios, Inc., this maquette showcases an animated take on the classic character from the Star Wars saga. Inspired by the various cartoon styles from the Star Wars universe, each character has been reimagined in a captivating new rendition sure to delight fans and collectors alike. We hope you enjoy owning this piece as much as we have enjoyed creating it.
