Although I'm not sure if I could afford these, they are awfully tempting.  I kind of like DBK's idea of using them as a backdrop to figure displays and things like that too.  Pretty cool collectibles.

I just placed my order ;D!

IMO, these are just too cool to pass up.  Cost first than space are the major factors in my decision to collect a line.  Cost on these are high however these are "too cool fo school" and are small enough to display such historical recreations.

firesidecollectibles still has the first 3 up for pre-order for $65.00 each. 

Regards,

DBK

I'm still contemplating (and trying to stay away from) this line.  They look cool, but I'm not sure I'm willing to delve into them at that price, when I know full well that this line is probably just going to continue expanding more and more until every major poster style for all 6 flicks is covered.  As an avid completist, that's a fat chunk of change that I'd probably rather put towards Code 3's (overpriced) ships instead.  Decisions, decisions...  Argh.

BTW, Walmart.com has all 3 of them available for pre-order at $72.46 each.  Not great, but still better than Code 3's and SWS.com's prices...

I know a lot of folks are into the low numbers but I would rather like #1980 because of the significance of the date.

DBK

As of this post, it's sitting at $170.50.

Bong! Let's make that sitting at $390.00.

I agree having #1980 would be a lot better.

When you posted this, I assumed that some lucky guy had bought this at CIII.  But I just received my e-mail from Code 3 advertising this auction that they are listing.  No mention of the proceeds going to charity, so I must say I'm quite disgusted with Code 3 for doing this.   ::)

Jesse,

Well the folks at Code 3 are very much in the know of the market value on their collectibles.  There e-mail when they sent out the notification of the $20 Vaders made mention of the posters already selling on ebaY for an excess of $100.

I can't ding them as offering them up for $20 and no shipping was a very smart way to drum up business.  Since these posters will have a low producion run, I can't figure out the logic on auctioning of a #1 piece.  It's not like they are going to get several thousand dollars for the piece.

That's a little scary that some folks value the edition number THAT much, to where it's currently sitting at $740 more than it sold for at the convention, just because the number is different.  Crazy!

Granted this one's #1, so I guess that makes it a little more special than other low edition numbers, but still.  Not that much more special, IMO.  I'd love to see how far off #2 would fall, if they auctioned that one.

Brilliant marketing by the Code 3 folks, that's for damned sure!

$760. that buyer really wants it. I wouldn't be surprised if it went over $1000.

Playing devil's advocate here.  What happeneds if the buyer receives it damage?  What number does he get as a replaement?

The buyer keeps the same number and just gets the sculpture itself replaced. I also agree it was a brilliant move by Code 3 so that the money either goes back to Code 3, Hot Buttered Elves, or possibly to charity. Also, from what I've heard, the first 3D SW sculpture should be shipping next week. Can't wait to get mine. :)

Mini-Rock,

I got so excited about the releasing next week that I checked my credit card = no charge from firesidecollectibles yet :'(.

Nice high end collection pics btw.
