Doesn't sound like it will be painted, but rather it will be finished with a weathered "bronze" look.

Here's an updated picture...



Anyone actually bite the bullet and order this one?

I had it in my cart for a while.  Then I shook my head and came to my senses.  I was only going to buy it to drop it on ebay down the road.  I decided to forget about that idea.

I ordered it. ;D

Still have lots of time to change my mind,  I would prefer a painted version. This one is nice, the sculpting is great.

Gee, that bronzed version is actually pretty nice.  I just went to SWS.com and they're all gone.  No surprise I suppose. 

Sharon, how big is it and what did it actually retail for?  If you do change your mind, do you want to let me know?  I'm not quite sure yet if I want it either, but just keep me in mind.   :)

One of my pet peeves about SWS.com is that as soon as they're sold out, they take the entire "ad" off the site.  So I can't even look at the pictures or information anymore.   :(

$240-ish USD, somewhere around there.  And you aren't missing much from what was up there versus what is here.  Size-wise I don't recall, not huge anyway.

I bit the bullet but like others not sure if I will keep my order.  A whole lot of money but I love the Republic Commando design.

If they never make a colored one I might keep this one.   If they do then I might not need this one.

I got a visit from the Fed-Ex guy today:
























These guys look amazing in person, much better than my crappy pics would suggest.  I only wish GG woud have done them in color, man that would have been SWEEEEEEEET, oh well this will do. :)  Locked, cocked, and ready to rock! ;D

I was wondering if anyone ordered this.  I had them in my cart, but backed out.  Too bad it would seem.  Nice work and the pics are good.  Congrats.
