Well, now I am even more confused. The Starwarsshop.com site shows the tauntaun shipping in JULY, while the gentle giant site show it as in stores now, but won't let you order it.

Has anyone heard anything about this item?

Fireside stated on another forum that they also heard July but it was a confusion regarding the Chinese New Year....I guess we won't know for sure till we see it in our hands.

For those who purchased the Emperor Palpatine/Darth Sidious Mini bust from SWS.com I received my shipping notification this morning. So look for yours soon as well.

Okay guys, just found out a cool little tidbit about the Luke on Tauntaun deal. It comes with two different Luke heads - the normal one and one with his scarf pulled up to his goggles, so you can't see his face. It's pretty darn cool.

Also, the Rancor Statue is up for pre-order on bigbadtoystore.com - looks like the suggested retail price is $300. BBTS has it listed at $270.

I'll never learn my lesson. I was so good in staying away from buying statues and then i go and order the Animated Boba and Leia, now i see this Royal Guard and want that.  :-\ I am insane.

Well, based on your avatar, I'm not surprised.  ;)

I received confirmation that my Tauntaun statue has shipped! I am stoked- the photos I've seen look great. I'm not sure I want to make room for all of these things, but the Rancor looks great, and I'm hoping they do a wampa too. Gentle Giant has some damn fine sculptors in their midst.

That would certainly make for an impressive side by side display.  8)

Lucky! Still waiting on my preorder....
Are you going to display 2 of them Kirk? One with each alternate head?

Speaking of preorders, I just made the move to preorder the Rancor statue.  The new GG stuff upcoming is pretty smokin', I did not want to chance them selling out. I bought the Dewback when it first came out, and am really glad I did!

Possibly, most likely going to display them both in the shop but have one of them for sale in my Ebay shop aswell.

My Tauntaun arrived yesterday!  I have to give this one a big A++. And the price was pretty great, $130.00 shipped. Gentle Giant is doing fantastic work, I hope a Wampa is in development someplace!
