Gentle Giant Ltd. has announced their San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Exclusive. The Admiral Motti Mini Bust is a limited edition of 1,200 pieces with each collectible includes a numbered certificate of authenticity autographed by Richard Leparmentier.
Admiral Motti was head of the Imperial Naval operations aboard the Death Star. Motti was overly-confident in his belief that the Death Star was invulnerable to any threat posed by the Rebel Alliance. He was even arrogant enough to openly question Darth Vader for his failure to locate a secret Rebel base. For this, Vader Force-choked Motti, only to have Grand Moff Tarkin intervene at the last moment, ordering the Dark Lord to relent. This highly-detailed mini bust, based on the original Lucasfilm costumes and props, was sculpted and painted by Gentle Giant Ltd.
Each COA has been signed by Admiral Motti himself, actor Richard LeParmentier, and Richard will be appearing at the Gentle Giant booth at San Diego Comic Con 2012 to sign the actual bust! The Admiral Motti Mini-Bust will sell for $80.00.
