Gentle Giant Jumbo Kenner Style Figures

Post by the89thchris on Wed Mar 22, 2017 3:02 am

I've been a big curious about these for a while but Inrecently came across the 12" Jumbo Boba Fett in a shop and it was priced well under what they're going for on eBay. Surely if I was going to get any of these, this would be it.

After looking at it for a couple minutes it just didn't seem that cool lol not when you could buy a vintage moc for the same price. Paint job and plastic finish were just off. That's what put me off. Had it looked like an exact replica scaled up, I might have gone for it. Some of the other ones look a bit more acurite.

Anyone collect these?

I nearly bought a Tri logo Yak the other year from EBay but I've never seen any of them close up What a Face

I've been lurking on the Tie Pilot for a while but still haven't bought it. I find them a bit expensive and I'd like to see one in real first. That being said they look quite cool!

Yeah I really assumed that of course I would want the Fett, but in person it really wasn't speaking to me.

These two bad boys arrived a few weeks ago. Smile
Being a vintage collector, I find it difficult to resist the Jumbo line. It is modern breathing vintage.

Ooh nice new additions to your jumbo collection Marco. The blisters on these are packaged so you can open them without damaging the bubble or card, I believe. So do you display your collection as loose figures or as MOCs?

I wouldn't mind a Fett, but I'd open it for sure.

I have a R5.

Some look really poor like Bossk, but some are brilliant like IG-88. They're hit and miss

The R5 is like if Lili Ledy made a 12" scale R5? It would look exactly like that. Very cool.

The Yoda looks pretty decent too. popcorn
