Gentle Giant Clash of the Titans!!
« on: December 20, 2005, 11:05 PM »
Oh...my...freakin'...god.

Maybe this is old news to many (it's from SDCC), but I happened to stumble across this tonight looking at the GG Harry Potter busts.  I am absolutely stoked about these, probably more than any "made for collectors" item that has ever been released except maybe the first Palisades Alien bust.  These things look incredible!  Calibos, Medusa, the Kraken...what else would a COTT fan ask for?  Anyone else going to pick these up?  Any idea what the price point is supposed to be?

I've seen picutres of these somewhere before.  Might have been in one of the magazines like ToyFare or Tomart's maybe.

They do look really good.  I have a couple of complaints about GG but none of them relate to the quality of their product. 

Looking at those pictures, though, gives me the sudden urge to go buy CotT and watch it.  I haven't seen that film in a few years.

What's the scale on these?

Once I went to my wife and told her about these (quite giddily, I might add), she immediately put COTT in her NetFlix queue.  What a sweetie.  :) 

Not sure what the scale on these will be, nor the price point.  I'm hoping they'll be in the 8-ish inch range.  Not overly big with a hefty price tag, but big enough to capture the detail.

Very cool, had not seen this before. I just wish they were not statues.

I decided to order Bubo from BBTS, with a limited edition of 500 I can't pass this piece up.

I don't know why but i got a Ray Harryhausen GG bust. It looks so cool, and he also signed it for me. I love all his movies and he seemed so down to earth considering what he did with movies i just had to have it. I think last year they made another 50 busts but in white mine is blue and green.
He's no good to me open

I received an e-mail from BBTS, looks like my preorder may not happen. Seems they have a shortage on the Bubo statue, BBTS placed an order with several suppliers & one was only able to send a single piece & another sent only about 15% of the orders. It is unlikely that they will be able to get any more of these, but they will keep my order open for a while in case any do arrive.  :-\

With bin prices on the bay at $199.99-$299.99 not a chance for a Bubo.  :'(

I don't see them hitting $200 anytime soon.  I think we just have a case of some hopeful sellers.  :)  The only one that's ended went for $112.  Hollywood Heroes has one for $120.  Certainly not the $50 price tag we were hoping for, but better than $200.

Very cool Dale.  Glad you were able to pick one up.  :)  Mind if I use the pic for our gallery on ToyTraderz?

I'm very happy with him & glad I got him. I like the base & will have to stop into Michael's craft store & pick up a glass dome to display him.

Mind if I use the pic for our gallery on ToyTraderz?

John

Go ahead & add him to the gallery John.  :)
