Well I am a Vader whore, so I will be picking up the color version and if I am able to will take a shot at ordering the B&W version once they pop up on the GG site.

I picked up the Boba for $60, which is a nice piece, but happy I am not a completeist, these B&W versions with really low production numbers would be a real bite in the wallet to keep up with.

I just got off the phone with tfaw and the guy I spoke with said that in most cases it's just the box that has been damaged.  They will take out the saber, check it for damage and functionality, but the box is damaged and has been opened.

At this point I didn't feel too bad about it.  However he continued on.

He also mentioned that it could be a display item that has had minimal handling, and he was pretty vague on whether it could have been a 'return' that is being re-sold.

So all that being said, I'm not going to take the chance on this since there are no returns on these items.  If they could assure that it was only an item where the box was damaged and the lightsaber was mint inside and functioning appropriately, I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

Good luck if anyone decides to get one.

I have picked up most of my Koto's from the TFAW nick & dent section as well as my Vader FX saber, it is always just the box that is damaged.  I did receive a KOTO Vader that had a cracked base, they sent a new one out, with no problem.  They have been a good source for items that are going to be displayed anyway.

I believe the code SSFREESHIP still works for free shipping too.

There's bound to be some sort of tatooine luke showing up eventually.  Maybe the classic/bespin lando as well?  As mentioned, a lot of the main characters are being done.  One character that's missing (but could likely never be done as a mini-bust) is r2.
I'm still waiting for a tie pilot too - I thought that one would have been done a long time ago.

I would expect to see a farm boy Luke soon, R2 just is not going to happen in mini bust form according to GG themselves & a TIE pilot would be a welcome addition for me as well!  They seem to be dragging their feet with the Star Wars bust production lately, I think they have way too much on their plates with some of the other lines and formats to keep up with it all.  I have been hoping for something new so bad in bust form that I decided to make my own:

:O Holy ****! You must live at the store to find all of those clones/stormies.

Nah, you have me confused with the PS3 people. ;)

Modern Trading / Have GG Mara Jade Bust

I am hoping to trade Mara straight up for an Utapau Clone Bust, but will also consider other Imperial Busts in trade, Utapau takes priortiy over anything else.

Thanks.  ;D

Crap, just when I convinced myself not to buy any more Hasbro re-hashed crap, they go and release the Boba and now another Vader in what I believe to be the best pacakging job out there thus far.

I have got to ask...What is the total count?

I don't know, I stopped counting figures a while ago & have actually scaled my army building back to just collecting the Original Trilogy figures like the Stormtroopers, Sandtroopers, etc.

I have re-focused my collection on Vader, Imperial, Sith & Bounty Hunter items only,  like this one:

or this:

and some of these:

Nothing worse than having a bent gun...anyway if you heat the gun up with a hairdryer or heat gun until the plastic is soft, you will able the move the gun into the correct spot, then just hold it in place and stick the piece under some cold water from a sink or in a bowl to cool the piece off.  Once cooled it will retain the new shape. ;D

I have a handful of extra Biker Scout POP's/stickers that I will send to anyone that is need of 1 (don't be greedy, let's keep it at 1 per), just PM me your address and I will stick it in the mail. ;D

Hey ExJedi,

Great job on the Cody revamp, you put Hasbro to shame.

I like it so much I think I'll post it on 'scum and pretend it's mine.  ;D


You might as well.  In all honesty I posted one there too, figured with the sudden outbreak of impersonations going on, I should finally be the one to post images myself.   ;D

A fellow customizer sent me another e-mail last week about a guy answering questions on some customs forum about the customs he made on his his website 

I am assuming it was the same guy as the one over at RS, but who knows.  :P

Thanks for the compliments, still have to work on the helmet.  I don't like Habro's cheap paint job, I am adding more paint detail to it.

Wow, that is a great Cody upgrade!  I've been thinking about doing the same thing.  Did you swap out the arms completely between the #41 and Cody or just dremel the shoulder pads?  I'm wondering how you got the arm band too.

I was shocked how much shorter Cody was when I saw pictures of the figures.  I'm going to have to do this same upgrade I think!

I chopped up the original Cody Arms with an Xacto including the armband which was a real pain in the ass to keep as one piece with the shoulder pads, but it worked.  The armband was just hollowed out, and then slid up the arm of the SA #41.  I know it sounds stange, but the less I have to glue the better.   

I had to sand down the existing shoulder pads on the SA 41 in order for the new pads to fit, also had to chop down the band part of the ball joint lower than everything else in order for the arms to rotate  up and down and to the sides freely without rubbing into the new ones.

I hate Hasblo's version, so I decided to make a #41 SA Clone into Cody.  I borrowed the shoulder pads, belt, backpack, rank badge, helmet and of course gave him a removeable helmet...

The SA body makes Cody Taller and more in line with the regular Clones.

The range of motion is limited at the shoulders, but definitley an improvement over the current version.

For some reason I never liked that video. I wonder how old it is now. They don't have a year on it do they?

His song "No Sex" is pretty good though.

I don't remeber how old that one is, it breathes 80's style, but don't know for sure.   I just find the video entertaining, you can always turn down the sound.
