I got the Vader on Friday.  It is incredible!  I have now got a Chewbacca statue on the way in a trade. 

I am passing on the C-3PO statue since we already have a bust of him but no bust of Chewie.

My latest ebay purchase arrived over the weekend...GG Vader statue.  The statue is a very nice piece and I'm glad I picked one up to add to the collection.

Took a cursory look and didn't find a thread....

Just got the GG update and it had this to say:

And like in San Diego, we have been authorized to take pre-orders for a Chrome Darth Vader statue with light-up lightsaber blade for $325 plus shipping and tax.  And for that ultimate collector, make sure to get your pre-order in for a life-size Yoda with light-up lightsaber and sound for $800 plus shipping and tax.  We're not sure when and where we will be able to take pre-orders for these items in the future. So, if you get your pre-orders in at the show, you will be guaranteed to receive the piece.  Also please remember due to our contract with Lucasfilm, we can only directly ship our Star Wars products to the US, Canada and Puerto Rico.

Chrome Vader statue with light up saber.
Life size Yoda with light up saber. 

How did I miss this?

I've been meaning to split out all the prior GG statue discussion from the GG Busts thread Brent (where folks have been discussing the statues to date).  I'll still get around to doing that at some point soon hopefully, so don't get too used to seeing you as the thread author here...  ;)

As for the statues themselves, very nice looking, but just too big for an already overflowing collection room, so I'll be passing on these.  Sure love that sweet lookin' Biker Scout leaning on his Speederbike though!  8)

I was on StatueForum.com and found this pic.  I think that must be the life-size Yoda to the right.   :o  It also appears the Chrome Vader statue is next to it (with the light-up lightsaber).



You can also see the Luke on Tauntaun at the bottom of the display case.  As well, the Darth Maul and Boba Fett statues are there as well.  (Apparently, they had requested that the Boba Fett statue not be photographed because it was still in the prototype stage)

Some better pics from the Wizard World newspost a few days ago, courtesy of TheJawa.com:

Nick, I assume that's the upcoming life-size Yoda?  Was it a ROTS version?  AOTC?  OT?

Yes, it's the life size Yoda.  It's difficult to distinguish whether it's an AOTC or ROTS version.  It's one or the other though.

The GG LF Yoda is from EPIII. :)

Two of the newest GG statues are up for preorder at StarWarsShop.com, both available Feb 2006:

Darth Maul



Luke on Tauntaun



I'm a fan of pretty much anything Darth Maul related, but I would have preferred a more aggressive pose.  The Luke on the Tauntaun looks incredible!
