Yakface is reporting a rumor that Carrie herself was displeased with the statue. I didn't think it would make it past Lucasfilm, and if Carrie didn't like it, that probably cinches that this thing will be retooled.

On another note, I stumbled across Luminara Unduli and Barris Offee (sp?) at Emtertainment earth for almost half price. I picked them up to go with my Yoda maquette.  ;D

There's going to be a lot of disappointment among collectors if this is the case. ;) I don't expect it to make it past Lucasfilm either.

I just received my Clone Wars Maquette of Barriss Offee and Luminara Unduli from Entertainment Earth. It is very nice, and looks great next to Yoda!  ;D They are still 1/2 price if you were on the fence before-

Very nice! I wonder what changes were made (if any). It'll be interesting to see the edition size of this peice too. My guess would be to get your preorder in EARLY!

Well, those of you who want this statue should go preorder now. I just put a preorder in with MostWantedCollectibles.com. It's 20% off retail price.

I'm amazed this is already up for order- I thought this one would be stuck in limbo for a while, particularly with the greatly enhanced front bumper arrangement.

Well, it will probably prove quite collectible- I wonder if it will create a race to see who can go even further-

As for my house with two little girls, it just doesn't belong.

Tempted though the fanboy in me is, my decision is the same.

This will definety be ordered.

I can't resist it... It's the best memory from the OT (for a the hormones of my younger self, lol).

But she looks great, and I think it is the best rendition.

It is limited, but they haven't established the edition size yet (beyond the C+/D size that is)
