“To defeat an enemy, you must know them. Not simply their battle tactics, but their history, philosophy, art.” When it comes to Star Wars there are a lot of likable villains. From Darth Vader to Darth Maul you know these bad guys could kick some butt! But there is one villain that can not only kick some butt, but will also outsmart you on the battlefield. Of course, that villain is Grand Admiral Thrawn. Thrawn instantly became a fan favorite in Star Wars: Rebels, and with him rumored to be the main villain in the Ahsoka series fans can not wait to see his return. Of course, with all this popularity you also get a lot of amazing collectibles that are a must-have for fans.

When it comes to Star Wars statues and busts Diamond Select Toys and Gentle Giant Ltd. have an amazing selection of items available now and for pre-order. Of course one of those items is the Star Wars: Rebels – Grand Admiral Thrawn Animated Mini Bust. And thanks to our friends over at Diamond Select Toys and Gentle Giant Ltd. I am able to share with you my review of this Thrawn Mini Bust.
Coming in at about 6-inches tall this 1/7 scale bust is limited to just 3000 pieces. The Thrawn Mini Bust retails for $59.99 and is available at GentleGiantLtd.com, Entertainment Earth, and some local comic shops. You can check out my thoughts on this bust below.
PROS OF THE STAR WARS: REBELS THRAWN MINI BUST
- If you are a collector that likes to keep your items boxed up it has a full window display so you can see the bust. Also, this box’s art looks great on the back and also gives you a little history on Thrawn as well.
- The detailed sculpting and paint applications do an amazing job making this Thrawn bust look like it came out from the Star Wars: Rebels series and into your collection.
- The paint job and small details look great. From Thrawn’s red eyes to Hera’s Kalikori, this bust packs a lot in a small area.
- Even though this bust weighs less than a pound it has a good base and center of gravity so it is not easily knocked over.
- Each Thrawn mini Bust comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
CONS OF THE STAR WARS: REBELS THRAWN MINI BUST
- Not really a con but this bust would look amazing as one of Gentle Giant’s 1/2 scale Legends Busts.
- It would be nice to see Hera’s Kalikori on the front of the bust so it can be seen easily when displayed
My Final Thoughts
This is another amazing piece from Diamond Select Toys and Gentle Giant Ltd. This bust may be small but for what it lacks in size it makes up in looks. Like I said in the pros the details are amazing. From Thrawn’s eyes to his fingernails Gentle Giant Ltd. did a great job bringing this statue to life. The only downfall really is that you can not easily see Hera’s Kalikori that he is holding. This bust is a must-have for any Thrawn collector!
