This is the second time that Gentle Giant has produced a Queen Amidala-centric item specifically only for limited markets. Why they haven’t produced a mini-bust of her is beyond me because they do a great job with capturing her majesty and fine details.
These little busts are about 4 1/2 inches tall. For an armless bust they did a nice job of concentrating on the detailing on the long lapel piece. Her headpiece also has extra levels of detail on it that were even missing on the Pepsi sound cap – which is larger. These were apparently made for Hyperspace members as limited editions.
The bust is made of the same polystone composite that goes into the mini-busts, so she’s got a bit of heft – but because she’s much smaller it’s not as noticeable.
Overall the bust is nice. It just makes me hungry for Gentle Giant to start producing Queen Amidala busts to give us fangirls something to sink our collecting dollars into.
