Gentle Giant LTD. just keeps knocking it out of the park and once again added an amazing mini-bust to its already strong animated bust lineup.

So to save time I will go right into what I loved about this Cad Bane bust.

Pros Of The Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Cad Bane Animated Mini-Bust

  • Like most items that come from Gentle Giant LTD. the Cad Bane mini-bust is packaged well. The bust is in a styrofoam block and has plastic around it to protect the paint.
  • If you are a keep-it-in-the-box person the box comes with a picture of the bust on the front. Also, the back of the box gives you a summary of the statue and some nice box art. So this mini-bust will look good displayed in your collection even if you leave them in the box.
  • The Cad Bane mini-bust comes in one piece so it is ready to display as soon as you take it out of the box.

  • The base of this bust is weighted well making it sturdy and not easily knocked over when displayed.

My Final Thoughts

So as you can tell by my review I think very highly of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Cad Bane Animated Mini-Bust. Yes, I do have one complaint about this bust: its SRP is $130. But if you look around online or are a Gentle Giant Premier Guild Member you can save a few bucks on the bust. Other than that I love everything else about it. I mean look at it, they did an amazing job on the animated look of the statue. This is another must-have for your collection if you are a Cad Bane fan and collecting as it is one of the few statues that have received a perfect score from me.
