!@#$%^&*()%#& 

The ONE bust I wanted.  I never got an email either.  If anyone wants to trade a BHS for Mara, drop me a pm.  I never took it out of the box yet for just this reason.  Stupid ******' Gentle Giant...... >:(

Beth- Im trying to work out a trade for a Mara if the one I bought doesn't go through. If I end up with two I sell it to you one for cost.

Hey Beth, I'll have an extra Mara (assuming my order goes through). I picked it up for trading so if Robb ends up not being able to help you maybe we can work a trade.

Hey Ray,
If Beth gets her Mara from Robb and doesn't need yours will you consider sell it to me.  If not no problem.

I think you're going to be hard pressed on that one unfortunately.  I still recall the conversations on 'Scum when guys were gloating they'd ordered 6 or more from SWS.com when they were released (and sold out really quickly).  Suffice to say their motives weren't altruistic in nature. 

It's the whole reason I bought a case of them.  I looked really hard on the net during the week SWS.com put them up and I couldn't find a single anywhere.  I think BBTS bumped their price on a set of three twice in a couple of days and suddenly it made as much sense to buy the case as to buy a set.  I think the difference was only something like $80 for three other busts. 

Case ratio, as I'm sure you know is 3 white, 2 501st, 1 Utapau.   :-\

Yeah I know Im probably assed out, but I thought I would give it a try. I've seen a few people get extras just to sell on ebay instead of helping people out. Which is greedy but expected I guess.  ???

There is a site in australia called www.kingscomics.com that has the orange clone trooper for $110 aussie which with current exchange rate about $85 US , factor in that for international orders they should drop the gst you should get it reasonable cheap , the only killer will be shipping but it couldnt hurt to ask.

 
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

Just wanted to let you (and everyone else) know that I received a nice surprise from my daugher (and husband) this morning.  She secretly bid on a bust for me and when I got home today, she had printed out the auction and emailed me it.  Jay knew about it as he gave his cc number to her to pay for it.  I am thrilled to finally have one and want to thank everyone here for trying to get me this one item I truly wanted for my collection.  I really appreciate the responses here as well as the pm's. 

*insert giant hug here to everyone*  THANKS!!!!!!!!!!
Beth

Well I just got my Mara bust, after not getting any type of email from GG. I guess I should consider myself lucky.

My Mara showed up via Fedex today as well. I was totally expecting not to receive any kind of shipping notice from GG (since it's happened numerous times before) but surprisingly received one on Saturday. Given the speediness of the shipping time I think GG may actually be making an effort to improve their business practices. Now if they could only get that online checkout process working properly...

Not a slam or anything, but I don't understand why people continue to order from someone who continues to screw over collectors.

I'm just curious to see how many, if any, BT actually sold to those who pre-ordered.  8)
