Gentle Giant Studios is recognized by the film industry as the leader in cutting-edge technology of three-dimensional scanning. The data generated by 3-D scanning of characters on the set is utilized not only in the creation of digital models for a film's special effects -- the Gentle Giant team also uses the data to produce prototypes of statues and other 3-D licensed products.

Being on location scanning actors, models, costumes, and props to create a digital library for the Star Wars movies led Gentle Giant to seek a Star Wars license for a line of mini busts, and eventually led to more items. To assure 100% realism, Gentle Giant scanned the actors, costumes, and props from across the Star Wars universe.

Gentle Giant's Star Wars began in 2002 with mini busts based on the main characters of Attack Of The Clones, and steadily grew to cover all aspects of the Star Wars universe. While the mini bust collection is still the cornerstone of their collection, Gentle Giant also produces statues, bookends, animated maquettes, and as of 2010, a series of 12" articulated figures based off of the original Kenner collection circa 1978.

The Gentle Giant Photo Archive is the combined effort of many members of the Rebelscum staff and features the photography of Chris Wyman, D. Martin Myatt, Mark Hurray, and Philip Wise.

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
