They're cranking these out pretty well...  :)


Clicky To Pre-Order

Love these, but can't jump into them.  I'll stick with original little guys, but yeah these are great. :)

Awesome.  I would love to get the original 21 at least and the DS Droid is easily in my top 10.  Now if only they would have a BOGO sale... :-\

But everything that you buy is BOGO...  You BO (buy one), then you GO (get one - the one that you just bought)...  ;D

I just saw the 12in DSD on BBTS and was coming here to post the news.  Can't really tell from the pics there, but is he a really dirty vac metal, or not vac at all?

Anybody receive this guy yet?  Apparently mine is in stock and ready to ship.  GG is really cranking them out this year!

Shoot.  I am worried my Hammerhead is going to be AWOL as well... :P

He is $65 with free shipping from my comic site...assuming they don't cancel like Walrusman.

Yeah, that's certainly a great deal.  I always wonder about box strength though from sources I haven't ordered from before, especuially with ffree shipping, and I wonder if they'd skimp on packing material or use a flimsy box.

I know BBTS has really tough shipping boxes. I gotta have those cards mint, so BBTS's higher price is generally worth it to me for peace of mind that there'll be no damage during shipping.  I've been lucky so far, and I have all of them.  And for the ones straight from GG, those boxes have also been pretty good.

That's a valid concern.  I haven't had any trouble with the box integrity and they pack solid with peanuts, but a few of my items have arrived in less than case fresh condition.  No major defects, but my Greedo, for example, has a little bend to the plastic, either from how they removed it from the case or what they did to it in packing.  95% has been minty though, so I'm willing to take a slight hit on that rate for the lower price.   ;)
