Gentle Giant Bust Ups!
« on: February 14, 2004, 08:27 PM »
Well, our friends at www.rbelscum.com have pictures of the new Bust-Up toys...busts...things, and Ive got to tell you, I am not passing up if I see these. They all have fantastic detail! How about you all?

GalacticHunter has an article up detailing the first wave of these (for preorder at AFX apparently).  Although they might not have the detail of the slightly larger "mini busts" from Gentle Giant, this does look like it could be a neat little line...and much more affordable.  Haven't decided if I'm going to get them or not yet, but they don't look too bad.  The first wave is "Heroes of the Rebellion".  You can check out the article here:

GH's Bust Ups Article

Here's a look at Wave 1 (Ceremonial Han, Ceremonial Luke, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Yoda, and C-3PO)


Anyone else interested in these?  I've always liked the other Gentle Giant busts, but have never gotten any due to the price of them.  The size of these, along with the lower price point makes them tempting to me.  However, I have these Unleashed "statues" sitting here as well, so maybe I don't need more :).

I'd get the 3PO, but the others I'm not so sure about.

the only thing that bothers me about these is that they are going to be blind packed, like the kubricks  ::)

There's a decent spread on Series 2 in the new issue of Lee's as well.

Funny, but I was just flipping through that magazine about an hour ago at lunch, and was going to mention the same thing in here Nick, but in all my senility - already forgot.

Great layout, and some pretty cool little mini-busts there.  Tempting, indeed.  It's also got 4-LOM pictured in it (but not the Zuckuss above), so I'd wager that an IG-88, Bossk and Dengar aren't too far behind...

$5 a pop, but blind packed.  I'll have to think about it, and see what the rest of the gang here decides.  If there's a good trading network in place here, making it easier to put together a complete set, I may just go for it.

The Bossk is basically a scaled down version of the Mini-bust.  Somehow the Boba Fett got cut out of the pics.  Drat!

Oh yeah...  Forgot about that shot from your TF coverage.  Cool, thanks Nick.

Just say no.  Just say no.  Just say no...

I'm sure I'm gonna cave on these though.   :-\

Might just collect the OT line. There are just too many other things out there for these to come along.
