    I am excited I just ordered the C-3PO life-size bust from the Star Wars shop. It was $50 cheaper than the Side Show site.

    It will be here in 5-8 business days, I hope the wife does not mind...

    Some cool pictures out there at this forum link

    Does anyone else have it?

    Only 750 to be made... My guess, I think I will be in the 400's

    #060 out of 750...

    It appears to be a returned item... that kind of pisses me off...

    What do you think? Be happy with the low number... or be mad that it is basically used?

    Was it dusty? Not packaged properly? Maybe it was just old stock that they unearthed - that happens sometimes, things get put away in the wrong places.

    If not - they should've stated that it was a returned item. At least you got a discount on it and they didn't charge you full price.

    How is it otherwise? That bust looked beautiful :)

    No, it is perfect I guess... and yes I did save $50 on the price at Star Wars Shop but I also paid $90 shipping from the site... to ship to Chicago. WOW!

    I am happy with it... I just need to find a spot for it in my man/nerd/work space basement.

    It was definitely opened and re-packaged in the same box... there was a sticker that said OC something. I put the box out in the garage already.

    Here are some pics of me and my girls... excuse my sweat, I just came back from a bike ride when 3PO arrived.

    I don't know how to post a picture and have it appear in the post, sorry!
