Hang on a second... the Sideshow site lists it as an edition of 2500. What's correct?

This link shows that it's General Grievous Sold Out

The link I have is for the Grievous that comes with his cape and the other link does not have him coming with his cape that I can see. Second wave?

They have both a Limited Edition that includes the cape with a run of 1500, which is now sold out.

They also have another Limited Edition without the cape with a run of 2500, which is now available.

Both for $450 US.

Sideshow did the same thing with the Darth Vader 1:4 scale statue. They sold the Darth Vader Exclusive edition of 2000 (with mouse droid). They also had a regular edition (without mouse droid) of 2500. These were sold to retail stores/sites like Entertainment Earth... That's a total of 4500 Darth Vaders and probably why they are still available at some stores. Sideshow didn't sell the regular edition on their site, that's why most people don't know about it. They are already being sold on Ehey, so make sure you ask if it's the Exclusive. I've seen the regular edition being sold with a picture of the mouse droid. I ordered 1 Darth Vader Exclusive and 6 Darth Vader regulars, 1 General Grievous Exclusive and 4 General Grievous regulars. All for my own collection.

All for your own collection?  Why would you want multiples of these?  Just curious.

The Sideshow Darth Vader and General Grievous will be the finest statues ever to be made. I've been collecting their Lord of the Rings statues for a long time. When they announced a Star Wars licensing, I decided to buy a few. I probably won't keep all of them. But I don't have plans to sell them either. Hey, one for every room. Although the thought of taking a dump with Vader or Grievous staring at me is a little scary. :)

Your user name wouldn't have anything to do with your plans for them, would it?

Are the arms poseable?

I went back and forth on the Vader one and now I regret it.  Does anyone know where I can still find one?

I don't believe it is poseable at all. The light-up chest panel and lightsaber is something totally new for Sideshow. I believe Amoktime.com still has them. "Profiteer" is a - personal thing. It's how I'm able to buy 12 of these.

I added a post on the front page to try and clarify some of the confusion out there about both the General Grievous and Darth Vader edition sizes.

How many of each REALLY exist

Thanks Jesse,
That was me.

By the way, what's up with the "I'm a llama" thing?

Sideshow has announced a San Diego Comic Con exclusive floppy hat version of the Luke 1/4 scale statue, limited to 500 pieces.

They are supposed to announce in the near future how you can order this online before the Con.  I'm assuming this means you can pre-order it online and then pick it up at the SDCC.

Bingo, just noticed it's up.
