    Pass, but for some reason I think a Kotobukiya Dooku would look cool like that. Maybe it's just his regal presence!

    I just got an email from them about the sale. The only ones I really wanted are the Fetts and I already have them. I don't have the room to collect these en-masse!

    Neither do I, but er...... I couldn't resist. I ordered the Snowtrooper, Scout Trooper and Ep2 Clone Trooper, for 143 euros shipped. Dutch vendors carry these plenty, but for 60 euros each. Hopefully, my second order with them goes better than my first.

    Hopefully it will go OK. I have the Boba Animated Maquette on preorder with them, and the new GG Jango bust. I think Boba is supposed to ship around Sep/Oct, assuming he is still on schedule.

    I have the Vader v1 and it's very impressive. I've had my eye on the Snowtrooper for some time now, so this offer from them was very hard to pass on. I picked the Scout and Clone, because I really dig their poses. Very original.

    Well, I got my package from R2Dtoys a couple of days ago. No complaints whatsoever! I cleared my room of all the clones (I think I have around 60 or so [face_worried]) and assembled the Scout and Snowtrooper. Excellent pieces :D

    Is it just me, or is Vader v1 of a smaller scale? I placed the Snowtrooper next to him, and Darth looks er... a bit short for a Sith Lord....

    Plus his helmet is too small. It's the size of a normal head without the helmet on. But it should be bigger.

    Those are some pretty good deals, but I'd still recommend patiently lurking and sniping on Ebay. You can get almost any Kotobukiya for 40 bucks before shipping. Darth Maul and the AOTC Clone will usually go between 50 and 70, though.

    I wish they would announce something new and exciting. It's been awhile.

    I saw the Stormtrooper with alternate Luke head and the sandtrooper tonight at a comic shop but passed. The stormtrooper helmet looks off, and I didn't feel like paying full retail for the sandtrooper.

    Yeah, me too. When was that mentioned? I think it was already a year ago.

    I also saw the AOTC Obi-Wan and Yoda yesterday. The Obi-Wan is ok, but I don't think the first series holds up today, with the exception of the clone trooper.

    Yeah, the Clones are magnificient. I don't have any Stormies yet, but I'm probably gonna get the Snowtrooper, the Scout, and the Sergeant. I saw a Bikerscout auction end for less than 20 bucks a few days ago, so some of them are getting very affordable. Maybe a few years from now I'll be able to get a Sideshow Grievous for less than a hundred bucks!

    Doubtful, those Sideshow Grievous are limited edition, unlike these things. LE collectibles should be going up in price, especially something like that awesome Grievous statute.

    Are the droids out yet?

    The droids look really good. I'm going to get them, but they're not at the top of my want list right now. I'll get them maybe next year sometime.
