Looks like that aint much of an exclusive if its available all over the place.
Its still gonna be added though :)
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Yeah, I wonder how many other places will have it. Oh well, I preordered it from RE. I don't want to miss out on it.  :)

I wonder how many other places will have it.

I would guess that any store that has a wholesale account with EE will be able to buy it and resell it on their own site - BBTS, RE, etc.  It happens with some of EE's Hasbro stuff too - EE gives the etailers a discount and then the other places resell it to attrack more customers.

That Fett maquette sure is cool, and I'm considering preordering it as well.  I'm on the fence though, as my budget is considerably cut this year, and that amount would buy a lot of figure (or one of the big vehicles or something instead).  It seems a little surprising that a maquette like this, that is sure to be super popular with fans, is an exclusive (although its pretty much available everywhere it seems).  Anyone get an indication that this line may be winding down?  I like them, and they seem to have a pretty good following here, but most of the more recent ones seem to be blown out periodically at various online retailers (include GG's site).  It just makes me wonder what the future holds with this line.  I only have four of them so far (the OT ones), and I'm considering whether or not to try picking up others I've missed or not.  Anyways - back to topic - very cool maquette.

Gotta love RazorsEdge, I received an e-mail from Mike & everything is fine with my preorder. Once the Fett & Han Carb arrive instock then they will weigh the box & LMK on the shipping cost. Very good communication with them, not often you get that with other places.  8)

Dear Premier Guild Member,

Just a quick note to let you know that we will be offering the Forbidden Planet Exclusive - Coruscant Guard Maquette on Thursday, February 12th. The item will go live on our site for ordering around 3PM PST.

We will send out another email tomorrow with a link for ordering.

Thank you for your patience and continued support of Gentle Giant Ltd.

Best regards,
Gentle Giant Team

I am no longer a PGM but if anyone that still is & is not getting one for themselves, I sure could use the help. I will be very grateful if you can help out, PLMK.  :)

Unkown what the cost is at this time but it's $64.99 GBP so about $93.00 US on the Forbidden Planet site.

I also seen this posted at the other site & it has been confirmed by VinylSquirrel (VP) that a animated Han Stormtrooper maquette will be coming out.  8)

Wow.  Nice catch.  Confirmation on this one, VS?

oooh, you caught a nice sneak peek!  Confirmed. Animated Han Stormtrooper.  This will be an AFX Exclusive, with a quantity set aside for GG.

Cool.  Thanks for the confirmation VS. 

Surprised that AFX is taking this one given how the Luke took a while to sell.

Perhaps Luke will start selling a little more when Han is officially announced.  They go better as a pair.

He will be much more limited.




Check out the GG: Behind the Scenes video.

Limited... eek!  :-\

I also still need help from any PGM member on the Coruscant Guard Maquette from GG, please see my post above. Paypal is just a clicky away.  :)

I'll watch for you Dale.  I'm still a PGM member until this round expires.  I don't see myself rejoining.

It would be nice if they'd get around to putting it up.   ::)
