$405 and climbing.  And this one still hasn't met it's reserve.  ::)

Why didn't I get this when it first came out?!

Ended at 662.00. Pretty much why i will never be able to back track a complete set.

I'm awfully tempted by these, but they are what is usually out of my price range.  I might have to figure out a way to justify purchasing these, they just look pretty cool.  Also, just wanted to note, I picked up the latest issue of ToyFare (with the Leia/R2 on the cover), and there is a small blurb within an article on them that says they are also doing a Lord of the Rings line in this style.  They picture Saruman, and I'm sure we'll see more at Comic Con.  Kind of neat.

Did you notice that the article also had a picture of the drawn design for a Stormtrooper or Clone trooper?  I couldn't tell which one it was, but it's in the background of the picture with the production Leia sculpt.  I don't have any of these, but a Stormtrooper or Clone trooper would be a must have  ;)

You really cant tell is its a Clonetrooper or a Stormtrooper. But i think they were telling us it's a stormtrooper without actually confirming it.

I have all of the classic ones on pre-order and cannot wait for them. A little back tracking still to be done on the clone wars line, but not too much. I don't want them all.

The C-3PO with the Jawa looks awesome. Not too crazy about the Luke, but I love the little Jawa.

I love these new pieces so much. The Leia and Threepio are must haves for me.

I'm a little hesistant on the Vader but it would look really cool with a Stormtrooper if and when they release one.

I love the style of the Luke but you can't own everything! :)

I'll be ordering the 3PO probably. 

I'm a little confused by Leia being alone there.  Is there a second statue coming down the line?

Oh I think that's just a one of a kind display piece but if it does come out you better have lots of $$$. This thing is ******* huge!  :o

Here's a shot from GH.



And from RS.





The size reminds me of the large Oscar statues.

Not sure what to do, I love the look of C-3PO and Luke and I've preordered Vader and Leia...but not Boba

How big are these things?  Where would I display them?

Thanks for the clarification Scott.  No way is wifey going to be pleased about a life size version of that  :P so no sense contemplating cost anyway ;)

Same deal here, love the looks of these things, but where to put them?  I have Leia ordered and will get 3PO as I mentioned above, but I've been waffling on Vader and Boba.  They both look great, but where to put them and why do I need them?  I don't know the size either and haven't seen any pictures to give them context.  Plus I have multiple busts from Gentle Giant, so I'm not sure I want to drift into more of this stuff really.   :-\

I really like these as well, but have the same issues as you guys - cost and space.  I know if I got one, I'd want all of them (the OT ones anyways), and I really don't have anywhere to put them now as it is.  I would probably need to do some new shelving/display case or something.  Plus, the price was always a little out of range - especially with Leia, Vader, and Boba all shipping in a 2-3 month span.  I had them all preordered, then told the Mrs. about it, and they are now cancelled :).  It would have been a little too pricey anyways, especially with Christmas around that time as well.  It would be sweet to have a whole display of these though.  I just don't know if I can branch off into something else like this - I'm having the same problem with the Sideshow 12" line.  If/when they make a Han/Chewie setup for these though, I'm on board.  And then I'll regret not getting the first few ;).

I did actually re-preorder the Leia, and we'll see if I can leave that or not.  It just seems like it might be one of the harder ones to pick up down the road, although the edition size is much better than the Padme.  As far a size, according to Gentle Giant's site they are 1/6 scale and they list the Leia as 6" tall, Fett as 8.5" tall, and Vader at 9.5" tall.
