I ordered the Dianoga, Early Bird Pack, and Bespin Leia during the 25% off sale. They should get here today. I think the box shipping weight was 47lbs.

I picked up a Hoth Leia, Han in Carbonite, Tie Fighter Pilot, and Salacious Crumb on that sale. My box should be waiting for me. The box weighed like 42 lbs lol.

Nice pickups exciter!

If anyone wants to buy any clamshells, let me know. I have about 2/3ds of the collection's clamshells still. Sold off about a third.

Ive been using some tax refund money to go back and get the jumbos I missed. I'm selective, I dont want them all, just certain ones that I'm nostalgic about. Shockingly, prices on several older ones are still about retail. I still need to pick up some 2018 ones, but otherwise I'm only missing ANH Han and Logray (any help would be appreciated!). I hope Gentle Giant will eventually do the rest of the line from 78-85. These figures are really cool.

Really wish they would make more coins. These things are solid. And big.

Just unpackaged all my figures and finally displayed them.

Much like the mini bust, I vote for the Rancor Keeper for a jumbo! If they make him, I'll buy at least 2 right away. More if they do a random variant for SDCC or something.

Well GG posted a big Facebook pic with a link to the big Star Wars day sale and to noone’s surprise - the link doesn’t work. Hasn’t worked since it was posted. And no replies to messages sent to GG. How do they stay in business? At one time they were on top of things but now we live on empty promises

Yeah this company has issues. Seems like everything they try to do fails. Heck we still don’t have our PGM gifts from 2017 and they are already selling the 2018 PGM membership. This is not the way to run a successful business.

Did anyone get charged for the 2017 PGM Emperor yet? I thought it was supposed to process on 05/08?
Mine has attempted to charge twice now but declined because of invalid cc. I have called twice already and they are trying to fix it. Sounds like there cc processing system sucks.

Received mine this afternoon... Pretty happy with it!



Will probably fit him in my custom ROTJ packaging with standard bubble!

That Emperor looks great! I wish they kept "Kenner" on the backing.

Just an observation... These figures are getting harder and harder to obtain. Are the production numbers going down? It seems like only 3 major retailers stock them (EE, BBTS, and GG direct) and they disappear quickly after becoming "in stock". If Amazon stocks them it is usually third parties. Another strange thing, if you go to youtube, you can generally find unboxing videos and reviews from multiple channels on every other new toy released, but not these Jumbos. Just the one video that GG does and thats it. Why is that? Nobody wants to open theirs and show them off? Or nobody cares about these anymore? Jedi Temple Archives hasnt updated their checklist in 4 years, even though they have been staying current with other lines. If you search for other checklists online, they are also severely out of date. Thats why I stick with Rebelscum, at least here I can find the latest info on releases, etc. I just find it strange, sorry to ramble LOL. I think these Jumbos are awesome. Sure they have had a few bumps (Bossk joke) along the way but overall a nice collection that I hope continues until all the originals/variants are released. An upscaled Dewback and Landspeeder would be sweet too.

I think they're refocusing their offerings to more popular or desired characters that get scooped up faster than say the Tie Fighter pilot who hung around for awhile.

I noticed the same thing! For example, the Hoth figures were on sale for a while. You could easily get them a year or two after release, some even more than that. But now, like with Jedi Luke and the most recent ones, they disapear in no time! And nobody talks about them anywhere. Like there is zero interest for these... Even this thread on the forum is pretty dead.

You could think they only produce a couple dozens, and that's it!

I like them a lot too! They have a lot of shelf presence. But I keep them carded, the whole packaging is part of their charm.

I’m trying to create a checklist for the GG Jumbo line. Anyone have a complete list or
know a good site for gathering what’s been released?

I might have missed some of the recent figures but I'm pretty sure that my list is complete.

Next to the figure names is info to differentiate the cards, where it's an exclusive (if applicable), the release date and the edition size. I didn't start picking the figures up until the second year they were making them so I'm not going to swear to the release months or edition sizes (I just put an 'X' on figures where I never saw an edition size listed) on the earliest releases. Also, after 'Yoda, The Jedi Master', GG stopped announcing edition sizes.

EDIT: And the release dates on the last two figures are estimates that are most likely going to be much later.

IG-88 (Bounty Hunter) (November 2013)

You should mention the corrected IG-88 card back, a stand-alone item really. The card back for the IG-88 had a typo error "STR KES", and if you called Gentle Giant and paid the shipping, they mailed you a corrected card back. I got one, so I wonder how rare they are?

Thanks, just added. Probably my thinking at the time of the IG-88 situation was that I was just listing the figures so I didn't get into something like a replacement card. I also didn't include things like the keychains that were made from the large scale guns.

I remember when they announced the line back in 2010! Hard to imagine I have the first two from the line that long now!

Just picked up the Early Bird set for $200 shipped during the 4th of July flash sale. Very excited, and if anyone else was looking for the Early Bird set, that's a great price

I received an email from Gentle Giant Wednesday saying they are having a Star Wars sale including the Jumbo figures. However, when I go to their website I only see the Bespin Leia. Has anyone else found others available?
