Forbidden Planet launch the Gentle Giant Republic Commandos.
Forbidden Planet are thrilled to announce their third figure from Gentle Giant as part of the World Wide Republic Commando Invasion. Over the years Gentle Giant has received many requests for the Delta Squad Clone Troopers from the Lucasarts video game Republic Commando and are granting the wishes of the fans with a world-wide launch of four stunning busts.
The four Republic Commandos will be available at four different locations across the globe, with Forbidden Planet London launching their bust 'Sev' on 30th January.
