Pics of my 2 busts I got in December
It's a good thing I haven't spent anything and have been sitting on my measly extra funds in my account, just got notification that my Yavin Leia mini-bust is going to be charged on Friday. Thank the Force Friday is payday.
My Yavin Leia showed up this week! She's number 561/700.
If anyone gets one of these, there's a nearly impossible to see plastic strip around her waist that's holding her hostage in her foam packaging. I was going mad trying to figure out why she wouldn't come out. I think they did a lovely job on her.
In her new home, the trio is now complete:
Diamond Select Toys acquires Gentle Giant.
Was going to post that - there's a full article on TFN Main as well.
It explains why they had a fire sale on their existing merchandise back in Dec.
Hera Bust and Spider-Maul Statue revealed as Celebration exclusives.
Premium Guild members will be able to pre-order Celebration exclusives.
I've only seen Hera in a few of the FOD cartoons so I don't know a lot about her character, but I really love that bust.
I liked her character in Rebels.
I am passing on Hera at Celebration. I pre-ordered Han Solo (Corellia) instead.
Will Gentle Giant be at Celebration? I do not see them on the list of exhibitors.
They're probably under Diamond Select Toys
Thanks for the reply.
Gentle Giant at Celebration. I'm afraid to ask the price of that Vader.
I will be pre-ordering the Luke Skywalker (Crait) Mini Bust tomorrow. I do not recall seeing it at Celebration, and it is a very nice piece.
MY personal favorite from gentle giant is Malgus. I also saw the Luke skywalker and it is a very nice piece.
Not quite mini-busts, but I got two micro-busts as part of a package with the Crimson Empire TPB. They're a royal guard and hologram Darth Sidious. It also included a special deal on Hyperspace, RIP.
I've got the same box set, I'm pretty sure. Can't remember where I found it but I've had it for awhile.
Edit - for those unfamiliar with it, there's a pic here on Entertainment Earth. (Sold out. This might be where I got it.)
Yeah I snagged it off eBay for wicked cheap. The CE trade is a pain to track down in good conditions for cheap on Amazon, so I checked eBay and had better luck.
New at Comic Con - it's driving me nuts nobody has put up full pics of what GG has in their booth yet. OK here are the full pics - looks like this statue and the porg are about all that's new (and the Bespin Leia Jumbo?)
Rebelscum has .
I just put a pre-order in for the Luke Crait mini-bust. My Guild subscription expired but I had points so I could take $25 off of the order.
This is a rundown of the new Guild Memberships.
Silver $50 - you basically just get 2 coupons - access to early items, 5% off non exclusive items, no free gift. Pointless.
Gold $100 - you get 3 coupons and one mini bust or jumbo figure plus access to early stuff, 10% off non-exclusive items.
Premium $150 - you get 4 coupons and one of the 4 items below, early access, 15% off non-exclusives.
These are the gifts for this year:
Ponda Baba Mini-Bust
Grand Moff Tarkin Mini-Bust
Clone Rain Trooper Statue
Removable Limbs C-3PO Jumbo Figure
The statue is only available to premium members. The premium members get an extra gift certificate. Gold members get 3 coupons and can get either the busts or jumbo figure.
I liked that last year when I got my premium membership I got 2 busts, only getting one w/ it bites for this year.
This is the sketch for the Tarkin Bust:
I already have a Tarkin bust - they did one years ago w/ him in his chair. I'll probably just go for the Gold edition and get Ponda Bada. They haven't done nearly enough cantina creature busts.
BTW Ahsoka is shipping soon.
Last year's Premium Guild gifts are scheduled for next quarter aka July -Sept
Some more development pics from GG
Rey statue w/o her helmet.
New head bust series
Jumbo figure for Premium Guild
Hope they do a bit better on Rey's eyes for the finished product - they look a bit 'off' to me.
