I wasn't sure where to post this, but I thought it might work best here. I've been thinking about trying to assemble a smaller "high end" (at least high end to me) collection of some of the main characters from the OT. The two lines I've been looking at are the 12" Sideshow figures and the Gentle Giant mini busts. I'm not sure how many here collect both (or either one), but I was curious which line you think might be the best way to go. I know its all a matter of opinion, but I always enjoy reading other people's thoughts.
The characters I was thinking about picking up over the long haul are the following:
ANH Han Solo
ANH Luke Skywalker (Tatooine)
ANH Princess Leia
Maybe later on..
Lando Calrissian (Bespin)
Anyways, I realize many of these haven't been touched on in either line in some cases, but I figure they will be eventually. As for my personal collection, I only have Han/Chewie mini busts, and Han (Bespin) 12" (with the ANH Han on the way in the next week or so). With Sideshow's price increases, it seems like GG might be the more affordable option for me - but then again, many of the mini busts I would have to backtrack on and that could get pricier (or even cheaper too) in some cases. Who knows, with all this Hasbro stuff coming up, I might not be able to afford either line - but I was just curious what some of you thought. I'm not nearly as educated on these lines as many of you, and I appreciate any help you might have to offer.
