Gentle Giant has sent out an email newsletter ahead of New York Toy Fair announcing a variety of enamel pins, including pins based on Kenner's Star Wars action figure line from the 70's and 80's!
"Enamel Pins - The enamel pin craze has swept the planet and once again pop culture fandom is on the forefront of that trend. Gentle Giant Toys is beyond excited to step into this arena with the biggest juggernaut license in the galaxy – Star Wars!
We are launching our new enamel pin program with 2-D enamel pins representing arguably the most popular toy line of all time – vintage Star Wars figures! Subsequent waves will feature current films and characters from movies such as The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi as well as looking back across over 40 years of the Star Wars Universe!"
We'll post updates to pricing and availability as it becomes available, please check back!
