The bust looks cool, but there is just too much extra stuff. Busts are only supposed to be torsos with heads; no arms, no other stuff. I still like it though! :) Ill definately pick it up

I printed out the picture and took to my frined at my comic book store. I have my name put down for them to order one. Man! I wonder how long the Busts will keep going? I hope at least for the Main Characters.

For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com

I ordered the Boba Fett bust from ToyNK, and it has changed since that first picture was made public. They also stepped up his run as well, to 7,500.

Not much on Mr. Tarkin just because I never saw his appeal, aside from being the only guy that had more power than Vader, so to speak.  But I am with Adam. I  like busts more along the lines of Jango Fett.

Gotta make an exception w/ Boba, b/c his blaster is way too sweet.  ;D

I think the new Tarkin bust looks amazing! I also just recieved my Boba Fett bust and Wow. I wasn't a huge fan of the Ep. 2 busts except Dooku and Jango, but the OT busts have been great.

I wish I had gotten it when I had the money, but now I'm broke.  :(

Got my Boba bust today, so except for the Legends in 3D Emperor bust, my bust collection is complete! :)

Cool bust collection Adam!  MisterPL actually gave away that Palpy bust as a prize in the previous Survivor contest over at GH.  Bummer!

I actually like what I see in the background of that picture even more though!  You need to put up some more shots of that sweet figure collection of yours!  I love seeing what my collection would look like OUT OF the boxes - so pictures from a fellow carded and loose completist are always cool in my book!   ;)  Do you rotate the carded ones on those pegs so you're not looking at the same ones in the front all the time Adam?

Dig your "father and son" shot as well Cory!

Ill try and take some pictures of the figure collection later. My carded Saga collection right now is in numerical order. My POTJ collection (not pictured) is just kind of haphazardly organized, but into collection 1 and 2, and Star Tours by itself

MBNA Chrome Vader mini bust
« Reply #28 on: July 5, 2003, 12:16 PM »
Finally, something to use my credit card points for!!

Chrome Vader Bust

I was saving my points for the mini bust of Padme but only Obi-wan and Anakin are available so I think I'll just use some of them for this item.

WHAT?! Whoa there... Unless they changed it, they did have a deal, all you had to do was apply for the card, spend $25.00 and you'd get the bust! Now you effectively have to spend $7500 bucks?
