I'm definitely getting Leia and Threepio, but passing on the rest for now.

As Master Yoda said "Control! Control! You must learn control!"  ;D

I'm also super disappointed (yet financially relieved) by the Stormtrooper. The pose does nothing for me and I think the helmet / eyes look a little too wonky. Maybe they'll take a cue from the bust line and do a couple of poses on different Stormie statues?

Check out these great pics of the Boba Fett maquette from the Hong Kong 501st Outpost!

I think GG has hit a home run with this one.  8)

VERY nice. I wish they had done something equally exciting with the Stormtrooper rather than the jogging pose.  ::)

The pics of Boba pushed me over the edge. I went and ordered that, Leia/R2, and C-3PO/Jawa. I just don't like the vader/stormtrooper/luke hoth enough to get them.

Willpower, where art thou?!

I'm checking through the boards and realize that there is no thread for Gentle Giant Clone Wars or Animated Maquettes!  Can that be for real???  I figured I was obligated to start one as their absence should just be illegal.  I started collecting these about one year ago, and can say that I have been fortunate enough to get my hands on each of the original Clone Wars maquettes, including the coveted 'Snow Bunny' Padme.  I have since turned my attention to trying to acquire PROMO versions, but this is really taking a toll on my pocketbook.  I can't say enough about the shear sweetness of these bad boys.  What do y'all think?

Naw, it exists, it's just cleverly hidden away is all.  All things clone wars are in the clone wars forum, but that's much less obvious than it was even a couple of months ago, now that it's tucked away inside the Saga area.  I can certainly see how it would be missed.

Like Brent said...

Folks have been discussing the GG Clone Wars Animated Maquettes in the Clone Wars section, HERE.

And folks have been discussing the new OT Animated Maquettes HERE (in this thread I just merged your post into  ;)).

Europe etc 0 bodies! Gentle giant are crap when it comes to giving exclusives to Europe and don't seem to give a crap about there European customers.


Wouldnt it make more sense to move the clone wars maquettes thread here? I've seen several people make the mistake of posting about them somewhere else because they can't find the thread :-\
Surely it would make more sense to have it in the other collectibles section?

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

The other Maquette thread is now in this section.  ;)

Boy this B & W Fett is going to be a bugger to get, I wonder if RoBBy.jp or HLJ will carry him.  :-\

Gentle Giant doesn't give a **** about any of it's customers. All they give is half assed apologies.

I want it, but is it going to be worth the trouble it's going to take to get it? Probably not. I can't even imagine what it's going to sell for in the Bay with only 500 available. GG continues to out due themselves... ::)
