That does look great, I hope it doesnt have the sag issues the bloodfin does
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

Sadly, it doesn't come out until Winter '09.  :-\

That day can't come soon enough though!

I've been out of the loop. Did the Asajj/Dooku statue get released yet?
I remember my dream now.

Yes it was, last month I believe. Chris should be able to give you the details as he got one after a replacement.

I am actually still waiting on my replacement.  :-\ I sent it out on September 15th and they got it back on the 22nd. It's now October 17th and I haven't heard a word from them. I know Jewell read the email I sent asking about it as I got the read receipt, but I've got nothing.

Aside from the trouble I've had, the statue is very nice. I can see how when it's all set up and not damaged, it will certainly turn heads. I had a place all picked out for it on my shelf even.

It arrived covered in dust, Dooku didn't fit in the base, the base was scratched up, Dooku was "touched up" with the wrong colored paint and there was no QC sticker in the box. It was quite a mess.

I personally don't like that they went with the shiny base. It sticks out like a sore thumb.

Some of the GG statues are on sale too.  The Tauntaun twins are running around $90 each I think.  Great deals, but I have no need of them.

I saw some of those great sale prices as well.  We really don't have the extra money right now, or I'd really like to pick up those TaunTaun sets.  I always thought those would make a nice "set" of statues to have, but unfortunately the sale just comes at the wrong time for me.  Great deals to be sure though.

I couldn' t resist these prices, pulled the trigger and ordered the Jabba, Palace Band, and Han on Tauntaun statues!  These are my first GG purchases ever (collected more 12" Sideshow) and am excited to see what they look like in person.  :)  I wasn't sure which tauntaun statue to choose at first but went with Han after figuring that his likeness was better and the pose of the tauntaun (in motion) looked more interesting.  I am hoping I can still send in the redemption codes for the free Bib Fortuna, think it said in the fine print it was good until the end of December 2008 or until supplies last.  Has anyone recently sent away for and received Bib?

What do GG collectors here that have these statues think of them?  I thought for half price I could get a pretty cool diorama going with Jabba, throne, Oola, Jawa, 3 band members, Salacious Crumb, and hopefully Bib.  Now I might become addicted as that upcoming Wampa statue looks cool and would go nice with my Han on Tauntaun statue!  :D
