Due to the substantial amount of negative email we have received here at Rebelscum regarding the limited availability of the Gentle Giant Blue Clonetrooper bust, Philip Wise decided to speak with Gentle Giant's Marketing and Sales representative Eric Lyga. Philip questioned the rumors floating around about the possibility of an additional run. Eric's response was no. Eric let Philip know that increasing the supply of limited Clinetrooper busts would not be fair to those collectors who have already purchased one. He also mentioned that this was Gentle Giant's first ever convention exclusive and they specifically chose to produce a variant bust rather than a core character so that demand wouldn't be out of control. However they have been surprised by the demand for the product, and future plans for exclusives will reflect their lesson learned this year.

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
