Gentle Giant Limited - December 2011. The Gentle Giant Holiday Bust has become quite a tradition. 2011 brings collectors of this rare line a new mini bust based on the 2010 LucasFilm holiday greeting card featuring Darth Vader releasing a white dove. For the rest of the year, collectors can display this bust without the dove in Vader's outstretched left hand, thus transforming the piece to more accurately reflect the pivotal scene from The Empire Strikes Back, as Vader reveals his paternal connexion to the wounded rebel, Luke Skywalker. Additionally, members of the Gentle Giant Premier Guild will have the opportunity to order the deluxe version of the mini-bust with an interchangeable Vader hand holding C-3PO's disembodied head. Inspired from the Dark Horse comic, and also reprinted and packaged with the bust, is the complete "Thank the Maker" story from Star Wars Tales #6, giving a close look at what truly happened to C-3PO on that fateful day in Cloud City. Boasting three pose variations and an exclusive reprint comic, this film accurate 1/6th scale rendition of the infamous dark lord comes hand numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity and is a strictly limited edition collectible, only from Gentle Giant Ltd.
