The Gentle Giant General Veers Mini Bust: Our Geek Shields Were Down in MomentsFebruary 7, 2014
When it comes to Star Wars action figures and collectibles, familiar characters like Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and Darth Maul tend to get the lion share of the attention. Thankfully, the master creators at Gentle Giant Ltd. have seen fit to immortalize one of the more obscure fan favorite baddies from the original Star Wars trilogy; the AT-AT driving senior officer of the “evil galactic empire”, General Maximilian Veers.
Standing roughly 6.75 inches tall, the 1/6th scale Gentle Giant General Veers Mini Bust is a masterful recreation of the fictional military strategist played by distinguished British actor, Julian Glover, in The Empire Strikes Back. The creative team of Ugnaughts at Gentle Giant went to great lengths to capture all of the intricate details of General Veers costume and accouterments (albeit from the waist up) in a sturdy diminutive collectible that is destined to have an esoteric appeal to fans of the original Star Wars trilogy.
Were stoked by the Gentle Giant General Veers Mini Bust and given the companys penchant for sculpting arcane Star Wars characters, we can only hope to see an Admiral Ozzel or Captain Admiral Piett in the future. For now, check out more shots of Gentle Giant’s reproduction of the evil General Veers below.
