Gentle Giant has announced the availability of the Darth Vader Meet the Maker Holiday 2011 Deluxe Mini Bust for 2011 premier guild members. the bust is sculptured based on LucasFilm holiday greeting card that features the dark sith releasing a white dove. yea, i know it’s kind of ironical cos’ white dove is usually associated with peace and loving, but the Darth Vader is anything but that. luckily, it has an interchangeable hand that doesn’t hold the symbol of peace. this deluxe version also includes another interchangeable hand holding C3-PO’s disembodied head. along with it, is a Dark Horse comic-inspired “Thank the Maker” story from Star Wars Tales #6 that tells of how the ever-chattering golden droid friend ended up on Vader’s hand.

from the guy who brought to you the wonderfully beautiful Portal Gun replica, comes yet another jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring masterpiece. this time the weapon in question is the N7 Rifle from Bioware’s upcoming Mass Effect 3. Harrison Krix, better known as “Volphin” created this one of the kind replica for Bioware as part of the press push for the ME3. the N7 is an assault rifle (in the game, of course) styled in the already announced ME3 arsenal such as the N7 pistol, shotgun, sniper rifle and SMG. those who are lucky enough might have just caught a glimpse of this at the recent SDCC 2011 but if you don’t, then do check out a gallery of this awesome replica after the break or “Volphin” build process here. just in case you are wondering… no, this fine example is not for sale. what a bummer, doesn’t it?
