Gentle Giant has released info on its four newest pieces of Star Wars merchandise. This collection has something for everyone. If you’re a fan of the more recent stuff or just the Original Trilogy, check out what’s available below.

First up, from Star Wars: Rebels, is an older and wiser Ezra Bridger. Although his fate is unknown, expect him to appear in the upcoming Ahsoka Tano Disney+ series. The Ezra Mini Bust is 6″ tall and limited to 2,000 pieces. Due out in October, the young Jedi is available for pre-order now for $120.

The newest member of the Ghost crew, Jedi-in-training Ezra Bridger wields his green lightsaber in this newest mini-bust based on Star Wars: Rebels! Measuring approximately 6 inches tall, this 1/6 scale bust features detailed sculpting and paint applications and sits atop a pedestal base.

The Remnant is what is left of the Empire after the death of Emperor Palpatine. Scattered and seemingly aimless, the remnants find themselves in distant parts of the galaxy vying for control and something to help them regain power. The Remnant Trooper Mini Bust has interchangeable arms. You can choose between the E-11 blaster or DLT-19 rifle. The trooper’s armor has seen better days.

This wayward stormtrooper is $120 and is limited to 1,000 pieces.

Once, the Imperial Stormtrooper was a proud breed, serving the Empire faithfully and relentlessly. But now that the Empire has fallen, so has the Stormtrooper, often selling their services to the highest bidder. This 1/6 scale, approximately 6-inch mini-bust of a battle-scarred Remnant Stormtrooper includes interchangeable arms holding an E-11 blaster and a DLT-19 heavy blaster rifle.

The next Mini Bust is Rogue One’s Cassian Andor. Again, this is a pretty bare-bones bust. Cassian is $120, stands 6″ tall, and is limited to 2,000 pieces. Expect this merciless rebel to arrive in October.

Captain Cassian Andor helped deliver Death Star plans to the Rebellion, and now Gentle Giant Ltd. is delivering him, as an all-new mini-bust! Based on his appearance in Star Wars: Rogue One and measuring approximately 6 inches tall, this 1/6 scale bust features detailed sculpting and paint applications and sits atop a pedestal base.

I keep forgetting that Cassian Andor is a Star Wars character. Maybe the upcoming Disney+ series will help cement his status in the franchise’s canon? Of course, it doesn’t help that he was as dull as rocks in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Then again, nearly every character in that movie was boring.

Fans of the Original Trilogy do get something out of this latest batch of Gentle Giant releases. A new Jumbo figure is on the way. The 12″ Kenner-styled figure is based on The Empire Strikes Back Imperial Commander 3.75″ toy from 1981. The original blister card for this figure featured General Veers, played by Julian Glover. The toy itself didn’t look like anyone, in particular, so calling him a generic Commander wasn’t out of place.

The figure stands 12″ tall, will cost $80 and is limited to only 500 pieces.

From the glory days of the Empire, it’s the Imperial Commander! Faithfully reproducing the vintage Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back figure from 1980, but in a 12-inch scale, this 1/6 scale figure includes his original blaster, and comes packaged on a resealable clamshell blister card, with vintage-style artwork.
