Gentle Giant Statue : Dewback and Sandtrooper

Dewback :

Found on the desert planet Tatooine, dewbacks are large lizards used by the locals as mounts and beasts of burden. These flat-toothed creatures can be found hauling goods for merchants or moisture farmers, pulling Podracer parts to starting grids, or serving stormtrooper patrols assigned to the planet's Imperial garrison. A dewback is able to withstand the heat and dust that often leads to mechanical breakdown in modern high-tech conveyances.

Homeworld: Tatooine

Sandtrooper :

The sandtrooper is a desert terrain stormtrooper equipped with modified armor and gear to better withstand missions in harsh, arid locales like Tatooine. While their armor is superficially similar to that of the standard stormtrooper, advanced cooling systems in both their helmets and suits offer these troopers protection from the relentless heat.

The most rare statue by Gentle Giant, Sandtrooper and Dewback. One of the first statues that Gentle Giant did with a very low limit. It was released on the 12/2004 with a limited number of 1500. The price was $240 when it was released. Now it goes around $600 on ebay. I can easily say that this is the best statue of Gentle Giant. The skin details on Dewback is amazing. The 's' shape sand base looks great with foot prints on it. The sandtrooper is equipped with a riding staff.
