Oh yeah, I knew it looked like someone else was missing!  He should be cheap enough to nab.

I was surprised glancing through the GG bust eBay auctions from a few weeks ago how far most of these had dropped.  Seemed like if you were patient enough, you could find most of them for $30 or less.  That's at least stomachable now, hence the end to my procrastination.   ;)

You can't stick with just the OT though - you know that, right? Think about it... your OCD will compel you to get the entire set. You know it's gonna happen. Besides, Yoda and Jango are two of the nicest, next to Vader and Boba Fett. And what about the Clones? You're gonna need them too.

And you call yourself a Star Wars fan...   ::)

If you're gonna say some **** like that, at least go with:

Search your feelings.  You know it to be true...

 :P

But if I ever had any intentions of collecting the PT busts (which I won't), I would've never given away a couple of those Blue Clones from 2003 Comic Con.  Screw ever trying to track that piece of **** down again for cheap.  That's enough to keep me away from the PT ones right there.  So fuggidaboudit!

Oh, don't you start with me too now, Sharon!  Only I'm allowed to say that...   :-*


Was just scoping out the eBay GG bust auctions, and noticed plenty of Fetts (usually in the upper $100's), but absolutely NO Vaders, except for the Chrome version.  Make me kinda nervous about his availability and cost.  Is he much higher than $200 these days...?

EDIT:  Nevermind, I found a few out there.  $275 - $350.  That's just great...  Remind me why I decided to start collecting these, or why I didn't save one of my Blue Clones for trade bait?   :-\

You know, after luckily getting one of those Chrome Vader Mini-Busts, I was really interested in getting the original (non-chrome) version.  But judging by this auction, I won't be getting one any time soon.   :'(

Looks like even Steve Sansweet is missing the Vader bust...



Guess I don't feel so bad now.   :P

Just a head's up to everyone here that the Han Stormtrooper bust should be becoming available at GG's site in the next day or two (for their Collector's Society members).  If you're signed up there, you should be getting an e-mail when they're availabe, so be ready!  They said by Monday at the latest...

BTW, the hot rumors on the next several busts include Sandtrooper, Boussh, Royal Guard, and Tie Pilot.  MMMmmm.  Yum!   8)

Boussh isn't a rumor, it's fact.  Gentle Giant showed a prototype of it at Wizard World Chicago.  They weren't allowing photographs though.  Darth Maul is also in the pipeline in the not-so-distant future as well.

Site seems to be down since yesterday  :-\

Maybe it went on sale and all the traffic killed the site?

Yeah, still no word on the Han bust anywhere that I've seen.  GG seems to be running a little late with their announcement.


Boussh isn't a rumor, it's fact.

I dunno...  I think it's still just a rumor, Nick.  But if GG did make one, I bet it would probably look something like this:



Ooooh.  Pretty.  8)

Ya think?


Darth Maul is on the way, though.  Ray Park was in for a visit and a scan at Gentle Giant this past summer, so Darth Maul can't be far behind.
