Got my gift today.  Not bad at all.  The bag is pretty cool.

I had hopes of putting the bust-ups on ebay but its not even worth the trouble. They are not selling even with a .99 bid.

So if my GG memebership started in April 2007, will I be offered the exclusive member bust in 2008??

I'll take the Rex.  I think doing an actual mini-bust is a massive step in the right direction, but I wish it wasn't clone wars.

Although, I am very glad that it's not animation styled.  I definitely won't be picking up any of those.

I'm out.  I agree with you Rob the minibust is an excellent decision, but the Rex doesn't fit my wants.  I'm curious about the Vader but not so much I'll re-up with the PGM.  It'll probably cause me some grief down the road with other exclusives, but I'll live.

I'm definitely in. 

Rex aside, the first year I won the Commander 5-pack raffle and last year I was able to buy the Airborne Trooper, the UK Galactic Marine, SDCC Anakin, and Japanese Holo Qui-Gon without incident, for cost.

I personally think it's very worth it - although the more people that opt out the better for me I suppose... I expect that it'll be a lot more crowded this year trying to order these exclusives after the conventions.

I agree that there's been a tremendous benefit for me over the past two years as well.  I certainly did better than most in the raffles too, with the b/w Vader maquette and the Commander 5 pack.  I also scored what I wanted this year without hassle I believe. 

I'm just not that excited with this year's releases, mostly because I don't collect their lines, even the mini-busts, as broadly as you do.  There's only a couple of busts I'm interested in anyway and of the exclusives, I'm only mildly interested in the Fett from SDCC.  But $60 membership means I'm looking at paying $120 for the SDCC exclusive ($60 for the bust, $60 for the membership), probably more than I'd otherwise pay on ebay.  True, I'd get one of the membership gifts (this year's sucked ass and I didn't even order it) but I don't want the Rex bust and the Vader helmet thing is too iffy without seeing it in advance.

My Vader addiction caused my ears to perk up when I heard/read about the Gold Vader helmet.  Any guesses as to what this could be?  Perhaps something similar in scale to the Riddell helmet from a few years ago?

That's sort of my guess Jesse, but I don't know any details.  I'm guessing GG might have picked up the helmet license from Master Replicas for the mini helmets (that MR got from Riddell).  I'm sure somebody must know some of the details, but I haven't really gone looking.

At least you get a legitimate mini-bust this year that you could probably sell for most of the price of admission if you're not into it.

Yeah, and I know who you could sell it to.  ;)
