Just when we thought the Jumbo line was dead. This was definitely high on many wishlists. Glad to see it finally coming. Now how about more Jabba's Palace aliens??

Glad to see this guy released for real! But hope he won't come with the wonky short bubble Jedi Luke came with... Was Greedo like this also?

Hello! Was hoping someone can help me with how GG pre-orders work. I was waiting for this to become available for pre-order, and now that it is finally available I lack the necessary funds. Do they charge your account when the product becomes available/ships/processes or right away? I will have the funds in my account when it becomes available. . . Thanks!

You wouldn't be charged until the item ships.

They will only charge 0.01 cents for the preorder. They only charge your credit card for the remainder when they ship it out.

Nice to see some more figures roll out. I bet we'll see Vader and older characters come out on new cards as well.

Wish they'd do more Jabba's palace aliens... mainly Squid Head and Ree Yees. And of course the rest of the main character costumes: Bespin Leia, Endor Han, Endor Luke, Endor Leia, Skiff Lando, and General Lando.

Would love to see all of these. I could see Endor Luke and General Lando doing especially well since they would add to the POTF jumbo ranks.

The Royal Guard is up for preorder on BBTS now for anyone who'd rather order there. I'm never ordering anything directly through Gentle Giant again after all their billing screw-ups and their credit card database getting hacked last year. BBTS is much more reliable.

I was looking forward to this, but that miniskirt cape and robe are awful! They need to be lowered. No pre-order here. I'll wait to see what actually gets produced.

That was just out hand sewn prototype. The production figure will have longer softgoods.

Are we sure about that? I thought they were still doing the deceptive marketing of photoshopping upscaled versions of the original 3.75" Kenner figures for these product photos rather than the actual 12" figure people will get as the final product. We probably shouldn't concern ourselves too much at this point about how the soft goods cloak looks in these photos since it's definitely not what we'll end up getting. Hopefully the real 12" prototype will be shown at Toy Fair next month. I just hope it's not some thin flimsy cotton fabric at that scale. It needs to resemble the felt-like fabric of the Kenner figure similar to what they used for their Jumbo Ugnaught's smock.

I hope it gets fixed.

I would confidently guess that over 90% of people buying Jumbo figures for themselves also have a better-than-decent original figure to compare it against in their collection. For the price, GG should be producing their Jumbos as close as possible to the original in all respects.

We have an updated prototype with the longer softgoods now. We will be taking new pictures of it and updating the images on the website.

Are the photos of the longer softgoods up yet? All I can find are the miniskirt shots.

Looking great! I ordered from BBTS so it might take a while for me to get it.
Am I dreaming or did they bring the tall standard bubble back?
