I doubt you'd see a Grievous saber set since they all looked like Obi-Wan's and Anakin's anyway.

Got to disagree with you there, if you look at this pic they resemble Mace Windu's episode 1 saber more than anything else. They look nothing like Obi-Wans and Anakins.

I've got my pre-orders in for these to already, recieved my e-mails from my supplier today.
The Plo Kloon bust is a little more expensive than the usual bust price though.
No news on edition sizes yet.

 :o :o :o :o :o :o  WOW!
Again I won't be getting an exclusive as in the U.K shipping costs would cripple me, but on this one I really don't feel like I'm missing out at all.
I'll most definitely be picking a regular one up..... and to think I considered stopping collecting this line.

I managed to find a U.K site that still had some Palpatines in stock it arrived today.
I also bought a Yoda ESB and Han from Ebay, I already have a Stromie Han but having just aquired Greedo and with Chewie due soon I think I may sell on the stormie Han and go with regular Han.

I've just managed to pick up a Greedo from Ebay for the U.K RRP price on busts which was lucky as these usually sell for 10-15 over the RRP.
I think I may have missed my chance to get a Palpatine bust, I had 3 in my store and was keeping one in the back for myself but it got sold by accident when I went away for a couple of days and a friend was looking after the store.
There now going on Ebay for more than I'm willing to pay :(

 ??? I didnt reralise he had already been conning people. I personally rarely deal in pre-orders and I'd never buy anything expensive from anywhere like hong kong, I mainly only buy from U.K and U.S occasionaly some Europe countries close to U.K such as Germany, France etc.
I really cant see any way other way for you to get your money back other than legal action, even then I think you'll be lucky. Sorry.

I predict something simple such as a different gun, thermal detonator or perhaps a Jango related item. I'll be very suprised if its Han, if it is it will be my first exclusive purchase.

it would be almost a no brainer the exclusive being Han in Carbonite,
I really can't see it myself, surely a piece as big as han in carbonite would be expensive and big enough to be a piece on its own?

So I write him again and tell him I don't trust him

Heres your first mistake the guys done nothing you and you tell me hes untrustworthy.... doesn't sound very nice nor fair to me.

I finally just tell him Look, I don't want to wait anymore for you. I'm getting the run around. I want my money back. Just cancel this pre-order and refund my money.

Then the seller is stuck with an item he has ordered just for you, yes he can re-sell but thats an inconvenience to him.

Perhaps you should wait for the figure to be released?
The seller cannot send you something which hasn't been released yet!
By the sounds of things this item has had its date pushed back if EE are also delaying it.
Its too late now to contact paypal or Ebay.
I have have ordered pre-order items before and you cannot blame the seller for release dates being pushed back its simply not there fault.
Sending emails threatening him with legal action and calling him a conman etc I wouldn't imagine would get you anywhere either if it were me it would just annoy me.
Really you'v been silly by sending him a money request. What you should have done was made a non recieved item complaint to get your money back, the way you did it was foolish and has led to you now being in the situation you currently find yourself in.... perhaps a lesson for next time?

Sorry if I sound rude here but I am a trader myself and customers like yourself are just irritating and annoying.
You make demands, call sellers names etc when they have no right to.
The sellers done nothing to you other than sell you a preorder item.
A pre-order is exactly what it says it is a pre-order a seller is not at fault when the manufacture have to put back there release date were just as annoyed about it as you.
Most sellers do you usually offer refunds if this happens but obviously your seller hasnt.

GG Fett that's approximately the same size?
The sideshow statues are actually quite alot bigger.

I think its the use of cloth that does it. I feel like I'm not only getting a great representation of the character, but an fairly accurate reproduction of the costume as well.

I totally agree.
