Gentle Giant Indiana Jones Desk Artifacts
« on: April 19, 2008, 04:44 PM »
I just got back from NYCC and picked up 2 of the crates. They all looked great in person but sadly i got 2 of the Crystal skull, if anyone else got doubles or wants to trade one of the other 2 for the crystal skull set let me know.

How big are these things? Is there a picture you can post with something next to it to get an idea of size ratio?
I have been told to go to hell; well at least I will know everyone there!

Is anyone else a member of the premier guild still?  I ended up not paying enough attention, despite notices here to the effect, and had the auto renewal go through.  At least something of interest came up with the Indy paper weights going up this Friday it looks like. 

If anyone else is a PG member and not interested in the paper weight, I'm looking to get extras as they are limited to  one per PG member.  With three randomly packed paper weights, I'll need help.  I've got paypal cash balance too.

My membership expires on Jun 16th so I'm good, I'm not even sure if I can get to a PC at work but will try to get one if I can. I didn't see a time that it will be up, did I miss this somewhere?

If you are a PGM member, you should have received an email about all the NY Comic-Con stuff they are selling. This is what it said for those that missed it:

We know that you have been patiently awaiting the web sales of the Gentle Giant Convention Exclusives recently available at the 2008 New York Comic Con. Tentatively; we are looking to put the following items up on the web, this Friday, May 2nd.

Indian Jones Artifact Crate Paperweight (3 collections) $35 each
Each crate features a detachable magnetic whip and fedora, a removable crate lid and rubber snakes.

Collection 1 includes: the Golden Idol and Well of Souls hieroglyphics Tablet. Collection 2 includes: the Sankara Stones and Holy Grail Cup. Collection 3 includes the Crystal Skull.

Tom Bombadil Mini Bust $55 each

Yep, I got that e-mail. So I am guessing they will send out another e-mail with the link/s like they have done in the past before they go up & with a time?

I ended up in the club through the auto-renewal thing just like you.  I don't know what these paperweights look like, but odds are you can have mine for whatever you think is a fair price.

Well, I'll pay you cost + shipping + shipping to me but I'm not desperate enough or interested enough to go above retail for them.  I think they'll drop in time and one is probably really all I need.  If you want to flog it elsewise and get something for it, no worries at all.

My bad, I thought that was part of the PG Gift - I haven't been paying any attention lately beyond checking out that new TIE Pilot and wondering when Ackbar and the Tusken Raider were going to show up at my local shop.

Just remind me when it's time to order and I can help you out for cost, shipping and shipping, that's no problem.
