Day 37: Gentle Giant Padmé Amidala mini bust


Item: Padmé Amidala mini bust
Manufacturer: Gentle Giant, Ltd.
Edition: #1005/2500
Price: $26.21

Gentle Giant began their line of mini busts in 2002 with seven mini busts based on Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. Beginning in 2003, Gentle Giant changed their mini bust design to include arms.

I purchased the mini bust from the Great Escape on October 6, 2002 during a 25% off sale.

Day 32: Padmé Amidala bust-up


Title: Padmé Amidala Clone Wars bust-up
Manufacturer: Gentle Giant, Ltd.
Price: $4.79

Star Wars: Clone Wars was the theme of series 7 of Gentle Giant’s bust-up line. It was the last series with individually blind-boxed packaging. Many of the bust-ups, including this one, matched the pose of their previously released maquettes. There were variants for Anakin Skywalker and General Grievous and neither the regular or variant matched the maquette.

I purchased the bust-up at the Great Escape downtown location on December 29, 2006.
