    I was able to get that pre-ordered. Hope it comes out soon. I’m getting the regular version through my comic book store.

    Eh don't hold your breath w/ Covid and the fact that GG is usually really slow to ship stuff - maybe end of year if you're lucky

    Looks like it's open for international entries as well as US. I'm crap at photography and don;t have a decent camera but I know we have some talented folks in that area here. Let's see what you come up with! (If you want to post large images please use spoiler tags to hide them so the thread doesn't take forever to load).

    There's a list of the BB Codes here.

    For Spoiler (note - replace the {} with {} for the actual BB Code).
    Example:
    {SPOILER}Simple spoiler{/SPOILER}
    {SPOILER=Spoiler Title}Spoiler with a title{/SPOILER}
    Note that the Spoiler with a Title doesn't work on all devices.

    For an image put the first Spoiler tag above and the second below.

    I do too!

    She looks good. I'm glad to see that there are a couple of ROS busts coming. I'm hoping more will be on the way including a normal Rey.

    I put the Anakin bust and Child Statue on pre-order. I need to sign up for Premium Guild. The busts don't excite me but I'd take the Jumbo General Calrissian as the gift.,

    My first GG Statue arrived this week. I got the Dreamer Rey TFA statue. I got the Premium Guild special edition w/ Rey wearing a helmet.

    Statue is gorgeous! I'm pretty positive that I got the very first one of the exclusives - my edition tag I think shows that I have an Artist's Proof.

    Statue comes w/ 2 heads for my edition - one w/ the helmet and one w/o. This was my first statue by GG - I have 2 more on pre-order and knowing now how amazing they are - I'm going to be tempted to get more.
