Not bothering.  It's just ridiculous how Gentle Giant expects us to jump through hoops for these things.  And they do this one with an even smaller edition size than the BHS mini-bust?  Please.  We're your customer base Gentle Giant.  Stop disrespecting us.

Oh-oh! According to Blister.jp, there is a Black & White Exclusive Boba Fett due out around November 2006:

Animated Statue: Boba Fett (Black & White Exclusive)

BabelFish translation:

Blister limitation!! The Japanese 250 bodies! The American 250 bodies!

Reservation price: 10,500 Yen or $87.77 US.
Selling price: 12,800 Yen or $107.00 US.

Not that anyone would be surprised, but this sold out the same day it went up for sale at Blister.jp.

Definitely no surprise.  But no big deal personally, I think the colored version is much better.

Any place still taking preorders for the standard animated (nonBW) Fett?

Strike that. Found a place :) Ordered the OT Star Wars maquettes, along with Jack Sparrow and Saruman.

Does anyone have any information on when/where/how the black & white maquettes are going to be released here in the U.S.?
