Put me down for one of each. It's going to be a great year for Mini-Bust collector's!

I had some extra money so I went and picked up the Shaak Ti bust at a local comic shop. #0573/4000. It's my first mini-bust and I really like it, so it probably won't be my last. Very, very cool. ;D

Oh yes, once you start this line, you just can't stop. The Mini-Busts are quite addicting.  ;D

Yeah, two years ago I had IG-88 and X-Wing Luke, both picked up for under $20 each at a Suncoast clearance thing...

Now I have around 65 of these things.

And I like them.

I haven't bought one of these in awhile. Still have to pick up Shaak Ti and Aayla Secura. I'm definitely picking up Darth Talon and will try to score that Concept Fett since that'll be the SDCC exclusive.
I remember my dream now.

I've decided to try to fill the holes in my collection... so if anyone has the following available at a decent price, let me know.

Armless:  Anakin, Obi-Wan, Zam, Jango
ESB Vader
Yellow AOTC Clone
White AOTC Clone
Mara Jade

And I can't justify the prices on these, but if someone has a bargain for me, I'm all ears:
Red AOTC Clone
Blue AOTC Clone
Black Hole Stormtrooper


That's all I'm missing now... as long as you don't count those lame chrome things that I skipped out on (or the holiday editions of anything).

I received Plo Koon (2436/4500) and Ben Kenobi (3529/6000) from an eBay order today. I am officially addicted to these things. :)

Oh and Aayla is on her way. ;D

Picked up the Tie Pilot a few weeks ago.  Man, that's one nice looking bust - easily one of my favorites so far (mind you, I have a bit of a Tie Pilot bias).

I noticed that GentleGiantCollectors.com had a Q and A up with GG, and they mentioned that they will be "officially" announcing a Hoth Leia mini bust coming this year as well (alongside Hoth Han, Hoth Luke, and the Snowtrooper).  Nice year for Hoth fans, I'm thinking about trying to pick all of them up - at least eventually.

Yes, looking forward to seeing what the second version of Leia is going to be.

I have never bought one of these before, but a collectible store near my house has the Aayla for $29.99 and I'm tempted.

That's a great price. I'd say go for it. You won't be disappointed.

I have a question for those of you who have been to Comic-Con. This will be my first time and I have a one-day pass for Saturday. Will I even be able to get the exclusive mini-bust(s)? Also, is there a way for people who are attending to pre-order the busts for pick up at the show? I've just heard so many horror stories of convention exclusives I want to be sure to see if there's a way to make the process any easier.

Thanks in advance! :)
