    That is true, but I would say that just makes it more likely that it really is dead this time. The line seemed to be struggling even under Gentle Giant, and when a company is acquired, the acquiring company generally wants to cut out waste and discontinue underperforming products. It's really a shame that we probably won't ever get the Jumbo Jabba they showed off, since I was really looking forward to it.

    Hello everyone,

    long time time registered lurker, I recently got back into collecting figures after a long "hiatus".

    I have been offered this loose Jumbo Vader by another collector and was wondering if experts could kindly confirm it is legit.

    It is missing it's cape obviously and the collector told me it was a factory sample.

    I have never owned, seen or handled a Gentle Giant jumbo figure so any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Here are the pictures I have been sent :




    Many thanks in advance.

    Hi HDPE, does the seller have any provenance of this being an actual factory sample? Otherwise it goes from interesting (factory sample) to spare parts (regular production run but missing the cape, card and case). If they can't provide documentation on how they acquired a factory sample, you have to rely on their word. If it's someone with a long history of good trades or sales that holds much more weight than a random seller that you don't know. Looking at the piece on its own it could be either.

    Hi mate, thanks for the reply. No the seller hasn't provided any documentation proving it's an actual factory sample. I had to rely on his words. I actually used this "against" him to negotiate what I considered a fair price and ended up buying it.
