Well, they arrived today. My case of six Clone Trooper mini busts. I must say, Im pretty impressed, and love the extra selection of pieces.
In case you dont know, each bust includes:
1 bust, right arm attached
1 head (duh)
1 hand holding viewers
1 hand holding small blaster
1 hand holding large rifle
1 arm pointing
1 arm to hold the blaster or rifle
They are packed 6 to a case, in a 3:2:1 ratio in white, yellow and red respectively.
I actually have a beef with these though. Maybe its their paint, maybe its the paper, maybe its the 102 degree heat index, but every single bust I opened today, the wrapping paper was completely stuck to it. Imagine painting something and wrapping tissue paper around it while its drying. It was that bad. I had to scrub them all in warm water with a tooth brush, and there are still a couple of nooks and crannies I missed. I'm going to write to GG about this, hoping they can remedy the problem with later busts.
Well, onto the pictures. I tried to get as many variations in poses as I could, and this pretty much covers it. The only other poses would be holding the rifle and pointing, and holding the binoculars and using the gun holding arm (which would hold nothing).
Be warned, they are kind of big, and may take a while:
And also, just for fun, the extremely rare chase paint variant: the turquoise clone:
If you havent figured out that I'm kidding, well, I am. I just held the flash too close to the convention exclusive blue Clone bust.
