I really like this latest Yoda maquette as well.  I hope that Kybuck (sp?) is something we see in the basic line at some point.  I always thought it was kind of neat.  I'd really like to be able to collect these, they really do look nice.

I broke down and ordered a Boba Fett from New Force Comics a few weeks ago and it arrived today.  I absolutely love this piece.  The only drawback was that one of his braids (the blonde one) had broken off somewhere along the lines.  It wasn't any fault of NFC and probably happened in transit, but still...  :'(

Anyone know of a good adhesive to "fix" this break that won't leave a mess or damage the piece's appearance?

You could use liquid super glue. Just apply a little dab and hold in place with some pressure. I've fixed a could of pieces this way. I would try to exchange it with NFC first though. I would imagine they have some kind of exchange or something for damaged products.

Yeah I have used a touch of Krazy Glue Gel to fix a number of pieces. Just a touch ...

Is anyone else annoyed that the Yoda / R2 maquette is an exlcusive? They better offer them on their website.  >:(

Rebelscum has photos of a Clone Wars Mace Windu maquette in what may be the last breath for this line.  Talk is that this will be an exclusive item (although I don't know what the source will be).

We posted that news 10 days ago in this article at The Jawa.com.  It's slated to be the last piece in the Clone Wars animated maquette line and it's going to be a Star Wars Shop exclusive.

And the fact that it's a Star Wars Shop exclusive could be VERY significant in the long run.  The last SWS exclusive Clone Wars animated maquette was the Snowbunny Padme which has just exploded in price on the secondary market.

Maybe, maybe not.  It's a combination of edition size and desirability.  Padme was only 1000 pieces and the fanboys went nutty because as silly as it sounds to say it, the maquette was hot.  Mace is definitely not going to have the latter quality going for it and there didn't seem to be the same general love of Mace's character in Clone Wars or the movies.  Padme snowbunny?  No brainer.  Perpetually crusty Mace Windu?  Not so much. 

A limited edition size is the key, but even at 1000 pieces I'd be surprised to see his value top $300.  Ever.

Looks like C-3po/Jawa is on its way to retailers...I think I'll pick up this and Luke, pass on Stormie...I'm also going to get Yoda/R2 and see what Han and Chewie are like.  These are some of my favorite pieces in my collection now...
