    Does anybody know if Kotobukiya has a main website that you can buy all thefigures like gentle giant has for their maquettes? I've been looking around but only been able to find them at places like the Star Wars Shop and Entertainment Earth.

    They had a really nice display at C4 that got me interested in getting these, so any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

    I think I remember Googling for their website once and it was all in Japanese.

    There's some incredible stuff coming out from Kotobukiya: Grievous and a new Kenobi, Emperor's Royal Guard, and a set of Bounty Hunters (new Boba, Bossk, IG-88, Dengar, 4LOM and possibly Zuckuss) which each come with a part to form an all-new Darth Vader. Keep your ears open!

    I just noticed on Master Replicas website that they have a section there that they are selling the Koto's at what I'm assuming to be standard prices.

    No Sith! :p A Koto Royal Guard? :cool:!! And that bounty hunter set sounds a lot like the Marvel figures. I have an Apocalypse figure, of which every smaller figure in the line had a limb/part. It's quite impressive.

    Yeah koto had some sample drawings at C4 for the Bounty Hunter series and they look awesome and that Royal Guard sounds pretty cool too. The Grievous one I'm looking forward to after seeing it at C4 it looked great especially contected with the episode 3 Obi-Wan. The SDCC Utapau trooper is cool too even though it's a repaint it will look bad a$$ next to the 501st and Shock Trooper ones.

    Awesome action pose. Nice to get something for an IG that's different to the standard guard position most of them have.

    I'm a happy Fett fan - new Jango and Boba Kotos will appear in 2008.

    Go [link=http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front/Kotobukiya?s_New_Line_For_2008_109831.asp]here[/link] to see the Rebelscum story and a pic of the Boba prototype.

    Just my luck.
    Just when I shell out the bucks for the old Koto Boba, they unveil a newer one with a more dynamic pose. It is very nice, though. I may have to double-dip.

    On the plus side, looks like my wishes have been answered with a Koto TIE Pilot.

    Check out [link=http://www.theforce.net/latestnews/story/Kotobukiya_Bounty_Hunter_Series_110129.asp]this[/link] TFN story for more information on the upcoming Koto Bounty Hunter line. I know I want Boba. Not sure about the others. Unfortunately there aren't any pics. The article says Boba will be available in April.

    I'm perplexed that they refer to the Bounty Hunters as "the most highly requested characters".

    Really? Dengar, Zuckuss and 4-Lom over Lando, Ackbar, Tusken Raider, Greedo, Tarkin, Palpatine, Wedge and about a dozen others I can think of?

    Seems weird to me.

    Upping this since Rebelscum have pics up of the Bounty Hunters. Go [link=http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front/New_Kotobukiya_Bounty_Hunter_Group_Photos_113881.asp]here[/link] to check the story out!

    I'm pretty sure I will try to get Boba. Not sure about the others though. Dengar maybe but I'll wait to see a pic of the final figure.

    Although I really dig the concept (much like the Marvel series of which I actually have Apocalypse), I don't think I will buy any of them. I just don't like the way Boba and Dengar are posed. Boba looks like a dancer from Riverdance!

    Bossk, Zuckuss, 4-LOM and Vader too have great poses. IG-88 is difficult to tell.

    But, like I said, I won't buy any.

    I would love to get the set of bounty hunters and Darth but I have no idea where I would put them.

    Rebelscum has a pile of pics from the Bounty Hunter display at the New York Comic Con. Check them out [link=http://www.rebelscum.com/NYCC08/Kotobukiya/default.asp]here[/link].

    I think I like Boba's pose a bit better after seeing the new pics.

    That's a set that would be nice if you could get them all together in a discounted set... I mean basically $600 plus shipping for the individual figures and parts to form Vader. Ouch.

    Hopefully some retailer will package them together for less than $99/each.

    First post in over 5 years! Feel like Rip Van Winkle...lol.

    Since '07, I think I've the only Koto's I've acquired were the 1/7 C3PO & R2D2, the 1/9 Vader, and 1/9 Shocktroopers set.

    I think some of the newer posts became victims of the board move..
