Way to spring an exclusive mini-bust of a Clone Trooper on us guys.  As if I wasn't already spending enough on GG product this month.  At least this preorder isn't going to be fulfilled until May.

Too bad they check to see if you have money on your card to get one of these. They could of waited until January since its the holidays.  ::)

What the?!?!  Why is AFX charging for these already?  The availability of this piece is listed as May, so you have to expect that it ships then.  Almost any other place you preorder with charges you when the item ships, not when you place a preorder.

They don't charge fully. They see if you have the money in your account when you put your card on then they put it back.

I NEED TO FIND A CHEWIE MINI BUST #4,978...

I know this is worse than finding a needle in a haystack but i'm going to try and attempt to find it. They are just hitting now so I figured getting the word out early couldn't hurt. My birthdate is April 9th, 1978 so i'm trying to get #4978 out of 8,000. I'll gladly pay a premium if anyone finds it...

Got one today that's in the ballpark, 4,508.

Looks like the 2006 Holiday bust is: Max Rebo.

I'd like to have that Holiday Bust but ain't no way I can afford to fork out that kind of cash. With all of the money that I spend on GG they should be kicking me down with a Holiday Bust every year! ;)

GG is no doubt going to offer a different version of Max Rebo to collectors, just like they offered the Salacious Crumb piece.  They can't afford to tool something like that just to give it away.

That what i was thinking as well. My guess will be be just without the hat. I would actually prefer if they did the Rebo band in the animated style, but it like this one just the same.

No kidding! I'm headed down there either Wed or Sat to try for the same thing. Hopefully they have Greivous there too by then.
