All I see is where you can get a 50% off coupon for 300 reward points.50% off any in stock item at Gentle Giant... did you guys see that?
Click on the Reward Points Link in the bottom corner and everyone was given a 50% off coupon.
I just used it for a Jumbo Luke Stormtrooper.
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.Posts about the line going dead have been going on for all the time I've posted here----and the more time that goes by, the funnier they sound to me when I read them.

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.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.
This was my prototype years ago using cardboard. Someday would like to build it with wood.I'm strongly considering taking on a big project: Upscaling the Death Star Space Station to Jumbo scale, building it from scratch or maybe using a 3D printer. Mainly because I want to make the trash compactor and fill it with my Gentle Giant Dianoga and foam. I already have the figures to put in there. I recall someone on here was working on such a project already...was it gijigsaw? My question is, if I measure the dimensions of the original Death Star Playset, what would I need to multiply the measurements by to upscale to the 12" jumbos? Thinking about it now, perhaps this is too big a project, lol. I would need a lot of display space. At the very least I would like to make the orange compactor though.
Are you getting the C-3PO with removable limbs?Thought I would resurrect this thread. Here are the Jumbos I have:
Vinyl capes Jawa
Blue Snaggle tooth
Rocket Firing Boba Fett
Droids 3 pack- Deathstar Droid, Power Droid and R5-D4
Villains 3 pack Vader,DS commander and Stormtrooper
