I'm loving the animated bust-ups and the band set too.  But it annoys me that GG puts them up on their site and you click on 'order' and they are "out of stock".   ::)  How in the H E double hockey sticks am I supposed to know when they are available for order?  >:(

I guess the answer is order them elsewhere...

Qui-G, where did you locate that pic at?  Anyone have these up for pre-order yet?

Those look really good, but the scale seems a litte bizarre.  Anakin & Grievous are so small and Yoda's huge.  Perhaps it's just the way the images were photoshopped together for the group image.  :-\

That's pretty much Yoda's whole body, where the others it's just the upper body.

Gentle Giant has a way of making collectors make "exceptions"

Now I have bust ups, mini busts, statues, and soon a massive Yoda. And I thought I only collected the action figures....

Yeah  but notice how the 2 arc troopers were missing from the GG pic?
Gots me thinking chase figures, god i hope not, especially after the gree fiasco
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Ooh, an evil thought, but perhaps correct.  Two chase figures, but wouldn't that be better than the one for each chase figure of the last set?  And even at that, unless it ends up being something SWS.com sells, the chase figures have been pretty easy to come by and reasonably priced, so long as you wait a bit. 

It's whatever shows up at SWS.com that makes me nervous with this line.  I've been really fortunate to score both a Gree and a blackhole stormie from them (well, ordering 4 and 6 sets respectively ups the odds) but who knows when that will end.

I'm really hoping that they arent.
I havent had much luck with varients.
I just did a quick search on ebay for Gree and at $150 US no thanks
The other problem is the arc troopers will be popular and people will want a few to customise as well.
I've given the completist thing here , but I really want both those arc troopers
