Gentle Giant Announces Ezra and Chopper Maquette

By: Dominic Jones

You can tell a new Star Wars release is getting near when the merchandise starts being announced!  Giant Giant announced the first Star Wars Rebels maquette this week!  The maquette (pictured above) features Ezra (played by Taylor Gray on the series) standing on top of the grumpy droid, Chopper!  The maquette is scheduled for a Q1 2015 release and is available for pre-order, for $120.00, today!

The official product description reads,

"Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. Ezra, a Force-sensitive intergalactic con artist and Chopper, a cobbled-together astromech droid with an attitude find themselves thrown into a much larger world of adventure and danger, as the Empire flexes their authority over their home world, Lothal.

Gentle Giant Ltd. is proud to bring you the first new character from the highly anticipated new animated series, Star Wars Rebels – Ezra and Chopper! Crafted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd. in the bold style of the exciting animated series, Star Wars Rebels, the Ezra and Chopper Maquette is as screen accurate as you can get! From the paint scheme on Ezra’s pilot helmet to the subtle shades of Chopper’s various reassembled parts, no detail has been overlooked. Each hand-painted piece has been cast in high-quality polystone and comes individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity. The new generation of Rebels have arrived!"

I must say, this product looks awesome and I am seriously considering ordering one for myself!  Also, I love that the first product from the series features two of the main characters!
