Oola Mini-Bust by Gentle Giant

September 15, 2010

Gentle Giant’s line of mini-busts can be a little hit-or-miss. Some are fantastic, while others are just okay (and a few are pretty bad). This one definitely falls into the first category. The sculpt is excellent. I think the likeness to Femi Taylor could be slightly better, but in any case it’s a very attractive bust.

They also did a good job with the paint, managing to get her green skin tone down pretty well, as well as her over-the-top makeup. Her jumpsuit is made of real cloth that lays perfectly on the figure, and they also used a real piece of rope or twine on her collar. (Here’s a bit of trivia: Leia had a chain while Oola only had a rope. Maybe Jabba was paranoid about Leia escaping?)

I also like the pose that they chose. It looks like she’s been frozen in the middle of a dance step, which can be tough to pull off without making the piece look awkward. I don’t yet have the Attakus statue of Oola, so I don’t know what it looks like in person. But judging from pictures, it looks to me like the Gentle Giant bust is the best Oola collectible we’ve gotten so far.

    I collect these busts all the time, I have quite a few. I really like these busts they have, I have Oola and Muftak and Kabe and a bunch more but my favourite I have is Tarkin…… dude… the look, he’s sitting in his chair. It’s awesome. I intend to get the Rebo Band and I think Ree Yees is available or will be. I need to check up on those again, gosh I keep forgetting about those busts. There is a location nearby where I can purchase them pretty cheap, I usually get them for about 35 – 40 each or so….. not too bad…. Ebay busts are expensive. I seen them go for about 50 – 100 or more on Ebay….. I don’t intend on buying many online but I probably will lol. I actually don’t remember who all I have, I have a Bith though. I like him…… OH yeah…. Momaw Nadon….. that’s my favourite one, although the blaster is a bit crappy…. his character is supposed to be a peaceful and pacifist character but the bust has a blaster so…… still it’s a great bust. I got mine for about 45 I think, maybe 50 but I think 45…. it was obviously more expensive. πŸ˜›
