Armless/Classic busts are probably all going to be a no for me.  I was hoping for a real Tie Fighter bust in the more recent, less classic style.  That one will tempt me.

Red Royal Guard bust - absolutely, very nice piece.

Blue royal guard - pass to you, Mr. PT.

Thanks for posting those though.

The classics look interesting. I like the Tie and Boba... Not sure though. May have to see them first hand first.

Though Boba may be a given...

The classics line definitely has a nice pricepoint, and would be something I could afford - but I'm not sure yet.  I like the actual mini busts better overall (despite the higher price), and for some reason the lack of arms thing has always kind of bothered me - not sure why.  It would be a cheaper way to get some of this nice GG product though.

I never liked the armless style for busts. Part of the reason why busts in general never interested me. I like the Royal Guard.

Classics Bust Information
Since posting our first 3 Star Wars Classics bust on our site last week, we've gotten a lot of questions on them. Hopefully I can clear up some of the confusion.

Classics Bust will be:
- Made out of resin
- Be limited edition pieces
- No announced edition size
- Have an Alpha-numeric Serial Number
- Come with a COA
- In general will be released in waves/series of 3

- The use of the Alpha-numeric serial number system, will currently only be used for the Classics bust line. Regular mini busts will still have set edition sizes and be numbered as before.
- We will still be producing our regular mini bust line - That line is not going away!
- Just because a character is being produced in the Classics bust line does not mean it will never be produced in the regular mini bust line and the same goes for the other way around.

Thanks-
Amanda

Good pic comparison. 

With seeing how small they are, I think I will be getting them.  I believe the price will be cheaper than $30 on the open market too.

I guess it will all depend on the edition sizes.
