IG88 can now be preordered at Action Figure Xpress! VERY awesome bust.

If anyone can help me get a Luke Stormtrooper bust, I'd appreciate the help! PM me if you can hook me up.

Matt, you are correct, Vader and Boba are the only two difficult to get OT minibusts right now, the rest can still be bought for retail or less, I think. The exclusives kind of stink, but I guess with any line, we just have to live with it. Luke isn't too bad right now, you can easily get him for $100-$130, and there are still more to come at Wizard World Chicago, then online through the GG website to their collector club members.

And now, your upcoming GG OT Minibusts! :)

Question: how does one join the collector's club at GG?  I receive their emails regularly, but don't think that qualifies me as a member of the cc.

That's all their collectors club is; a recipient of their email newsletter :)

Yup, you should have a chance at it from the online sales. :) Of course, you could always sell it to me if you get one ;)

Awesome pix there Adam.  You may just have convinced me to delve into the line, even if the real things at Comic Con didn't quite do it...   ;)

ARGH.  This hobby's so damned expensive...  Way too many lines!  Killin' me now, it is...   :P

I keep telling myself to stay far, far away (hah I punned) from this line or I'll be broke in no time. That Dewback may be the way to go, since it's not really a bust. Maybe I can just get that and feel I've had my fill of GG.

Matt, you know you want to get into this line ;) Better now than later!

And to think, we've got even more coming up for the OT. Sandtroopers (white and orange pauldrons confirmed so far), Han as Stormtrooper... It's going to be a great line for OT! The statues are phenomenal, especially the Dewback, then you've also got the upcoming armory collection (1:6 scale helmets)...

I was late getting into this collection,  just started less than 2 months ago. Thanks to several GREAT trade friends, I got several really good deals. Don't be discouraged by secondary market prices. If you are a good trader, the good deals will come your way! Currently, my collection has a total of 12 SW busts, with 3 on the way.

These Gentle Giants pieces are just incredible!The statues, although some may consider them pricey, I find them MUCH more affordable than the Attakus.  Definately going to collect these as well.

Hasbro has really disappointed me in the last few years, my collecting taste has been craving the higher end stuff.

Oh Lord, you're going all soft too.  Man, I remember when the people on this site weren't so wussy.   ;)

Dude, sign up for the mailing list.  I don't know if there's an order to it or not, but it ain't hard to do.

Leia in Boushh diguise is coming to the bust line-up! It will have removable arms, one with a blaster and one with a thermal detonator. It is also rumored to have a remoeable helmet!

Stay tuned!
