Now, to decide between this and the Sideshow Vader+Ben :P

Do I really have to choose?  Damn.

$600 - I'd say that's actually a bargain for such a kick-ass piece.

Of course, my wifey won't see it that way after I told her I ordered the Sideshow Ben (in addition to Vader).   :-[

Is Ben up for order already?  Holy crap, that's bad news, very bad news. 

I've taken some very scary steps this year.  I've bought or will be buying a total of 10 items that have a total cost of around $2500.

Hey kids!  The Darth Maul 1:1 Bust is now up for preorder!

Click here and search for item 2909FLEX to get your preorder in. 

The nice thing is they've allowed FLEX Payments with this bust since it's $600.  Three monthly payments of $200 each makes it a little easier to budget for:

Mar 5th 2006 - $200.00
Apr 5th 2006 - $200.00
May 5th 2006 - $200.00

* Shipping costs and any applicable taxes or duties are charged in addition to your last payment.

Expect to see this bad boy ship during the 2nd quarter of 2006.

It looks amazing, though I'm not sure why they picked Greedo for their 2nd 1:1 bust.  Although it's tricky because I imagine they want to do busts, not helmets, so some of the more popular names that come to mind would be excluded.

Sideshow has put up photos of the production version of the Darth Maul bust.  Hot diggity, it looks sweet!  Shipping in the 2nd quarter, it's limited to 1000 pieces.  For a juicy $600.

That's a tough one -- the trick is finding a character that has a visually interesting face.  So the aliens would be the most interesting to me, humans would be pretty boring (and probably wouldn't be able to justify the price).

Chewbacca would be great, ideally with a snarl on his face.  It would probably be easier to do a 1:1 bust of Chewie compared to a 12" or PF figure since they could use the same material as the original costume.

I dunno ... wasn't the original costume made of individually hand-applied yak hair or something like that? That would be one heck of a lot of work to do for a thousand-odd busts....

Looks like there's going to be another bust coming shortly.  If you check out Sideshow's virtual display booth under their Comic Con page, hit booth 22.  It's empty but it's in between Greedo at 21 and Maul at 23.  Wonder who it is?
