I don't know what i'll do here,

Jabba is a diorama I have passed on them all, so I will on this one too.

Rebo is suppose to be a statue. If they confirm that I may go with it.

According to Diamond/Previews, if you buy both the Jabba Set and the Rebo Set, there is a third Bib Fortuna statue that you will get for free...

"Collect both the Jabba's Palace Band statue and Jabba the Hutt statue and mail away for a free Bib Fortuna statue."

I have heard that Jabba is diorama scale and Rebo is statue scale.

Jesse'll be all over that. 

I'm still kinda sour about how much I paid for the first one and I got it for $40 below retail with shipping, which turned out to be expensive. Are they limiting these at all?

I do like it and the thought finally a new pose for Vader keeps running through my head, but I'll still likely pass.  Between the first GG, the Sideshow and two animated maquettes, I'm alright for Vader.

I definitely like this one.  I probably won't follow my typical pre-order pattern on this one as I already have the original GG Vader.  But I won't pass up a bargain on this one!

I will get this one solely because it shows a different light to vader... and the ESB relation is a a plus. But I will be sure to be looking at  a better price. Something around $150 or less will work well for me.

I've never picked up any statues before (can't really afford them), but I'm seriously thinking if I can work this one out.  The light up feature, combined with the overall piece, just looks kind of cool.  I think it would be a nice display piece.

It seems strange that GG would do a Han statue and animated maquette so close to each other - it'll force a lot of casual collectors to choose between the two.
