Gentle Giant Ltd. Briefly Shows Unannounced Items In YouTube Video

Posted by Paul | December 13, 2014 at 04:00 PM ET |

Gentle Giant Ltd. posted a video on YouTube back on December 4th that sadly went unnoticed. But if you check it out and look carefully, you'll see new things that have yet to be officially announced. We also couldn't help but notice what looks to be a (GASP!) 6" vintage Kenner Boba Fett "mid-size" figure. Hopefully that's just a scaled version for better referencing or something else, but that looks oddly finished in our minds. Could it be that Gentle Giant Ltd. will be starting an all-new vintage Kenner scaled line? Anyway, even if that's not the case, definitely check out the video!
