    He was a premium guild gift last year, you'll probably have to hunt ebay for one.

    Got notice my Ahsoka Tano bust is charging tomorrow.

    I know - but then again that's the nice thing w/ collectibles - if you desperately need money you can usually sell a few things to get it. My auction went up for an HOUR and it sold. I got 3 times what I paid for her. So I'm not overly upset.

    My PGM Amanaman and Bespin Leia busts are on their way to me. I'd be FAR more upset if I had to part w/ Leia than Ahsoka. (I'd sell something else actually.)

    I am sorry you had to sell your Ahsoka but I'm glad you got to keep your Bespin Leia

    Well on the day I'm getting my Ahsoka to ship out my 2 premium guild busts showed up - I will have to photograph Amanaman - his box is HUGE.

    The mini-bust will probably be $100-120. The Legends busts are between $150-175

    Wow, that’s not too bad. After Sideshow prices most everything else seems affordable

    Right? It's why I love the mini-busts. They're really beautiful but reasonable. I want to get the Rey statue - it's like $100 cheaper than a HT figure. You do have to pay all at once though once they come in. They don't offer payment plans.

    Paid for my Premium Guild membership - I just did Gold level. Waiting for payment confirmation and will go in and pick my Ponda Boda bust and pre-order the Rey statue w/ the helmet (which is a Premium Guild exclusive.)

    Brand new Legends bust - for The Manadolrian for pre-order

    A Diamond Select Toys release! The most hotly anticipated TV show of possibly ever is here, and DST is celebrating with a bust of its titular star, The Mandalorian! This half-scale resin bust measures approximately 10 inches tall and features detailed sculpting and paint applications. Limited to only 1,000 pieces, it comes packaged with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Designed by Joe Allard, sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios.

    BTW this is a Premium Guild membership exclusive -- so you might not be able to view it.
