I didn't even see the Green Clone up on the site yesterday when they reopened. :frustrated: It was really the only thing I wanted to buy.

In the meantime, I just recommend that you order a full case or about 6 stormies.
That should basically cover your needs [DSS]Pedro.

You can always go back and buy an extra sinlge Stormtrooper if you need to later.

10 different poses for the Stormtrooper? That seems like overkill.
Especially with all the other cool statues coming out this summer.

Is anyone going to starwarsshop.com at 9 A.M. in the morning? I have to go to work at 8 A.M. I can't use a computer hanging 60 feet up in the air (and they don't take phone orders) plus my mom that tried getting me the Green Clone Trooper bust yesterday is out of town. Can ANYONE order me one? If so, please send me a PM- thankyou

The only maquette that I really don't care at all about is Yoda. Between the marketing for AOTC and the fact that there are now 3 different life size versions of him, the character just doesn't impress me too much, even with the 'attitude'.

I can't believe I get screwedd everytime with these busts. I just want one Green Clone, but no everyone gets 2 and I get jacked. I hate GG more and more everytime they make something cool. OK I done crying like a *****h, but I'm still ****edd!!!!

Jayspawn
04-19-2004, 10:20 PM
I couldn't agree more Turbowars. GG makes great products but is run like sh@! I miss out on half the products they make because they are late and make the lowest numbered runs. All I want is a Vader (dont care which one) a Yoda and Jango, but GG has made sure I wont get one.

Of course we all got screwed big time on the Green Clone and Clone Pilot bust. Now is there anything wrong with not wanting to spend $100s on these few? (I dont think so either)

I totally understand your frustration turbo. Personally I have considered getting out of collectiong the minibusts since the market is oversaturated, and just stick to the statues. For anyone just now getting into collecting these it can be discouraging also since the hard to find stuff sells for much more than it originally did.

I'll try and keep an eye out to see if any Green Clonetroopers come up at a good price. :)

Not collecting the mini-busts, but I did chance upon the Legends in 3 Dimensions busts at a local collectable shop that had been marked down to 19.99. I bought the Tusken Raider, Greedo, and Figrin Dan. Couldn't pass on that! I would certainly like to get the Boba Fett from Gentle Giant, but the prices are incredible!

Man, he is by far the best in the line though I don't have Vader or Yoda. I passed on all of the EP2 busts (armless). It's too bad Jango is armless wonder.

BTW, it looks like that site linked is using one of GGbustfan's minibust concept pics for IG-88. Too funny.

So you guys know about the SDCC GG exclusive Stormy Luke right? Well I guess I'll be missing this one. I figure this because per-view night is on Wednesday and I can't get there until Saturday. Gee I wonder if they will sell out by then?:rolleyes:

The Con has gotten so big thet added a day, and GG should take that into consideration. I guess the feel only the truest of the Fans will be there the 1st day.:bored:

The Luke in Stormtrooper getup looks great -just wish GG wouldnt screw us over like they do everytime. I'd like to get at least 1 Exclusive bust sometime but I dont have my hopes up.

The Clone Wars Maquettes are looking great. I might get Yoda and Obi-Wan. At least we have a chance of getting those.

I don't know about you guy's, but I'm a little disappointed the none of the updates recently have included any information on the upcoming Matrix releases. It's been at least four updates since we have received any info, and it was said in that email that there would be more info in the following update. I sure hope that the three statues, and Persephone are still being released this year.

Well, for the record, I'm not ****ed in any way at Gentle Giant. I'm just eager to hear something regarding The Matrix line, and it's a little disappointing when all the product updates are focused on Star Wars. Concerning issues with the company...I have none. I think they have shown that they listen to collectors requests, and the most recent example was by making their next convention exclusive available to members after the convention. They have also listened to suggestions on what character minibusts should be made, what the fans want to see, like the Green Clonetrooper and Persephone from The Matrix line for starters. I understand that they cannot commit to every request, but to me the have shown that they are making an effort by listening to their customers, and by communicating in an effective manner.

I still have a feeling we're going to get screwed on the Luke in Stormtrooper Disguise minibust. Sure it'll be available through this 'Collectors' club or that -but I bet it wont be many and I'm sure theres some vultures out there who willl have the drop on everybody else. "Yeah, I'll buy 50!"

I saw the Clone Pilot bust at a con about a month ago, the lady wanted $350 for it! No way I'm paying that much for it.

Well, I could be wrong, but for the amount your selling those for it looks like you are actually losing money from what you paid. Still the price you listed the Blue Clone for was good enough for me, and if you still need a buyer for your Vader let me know...I can use an extra one. :)

Doubt it, but even if it did go up a couple bucks IMO they still would be fairly priced. I agree about the box. I don't really care for it since the "real" artwork is inside. The Bossk bust is really nice though (both of mine arrived early today) and now just waiting for the stormie. :)

How many Stormies did you guys buy or order? I went with 4 for 2 reasons. They will be pretty hot and my order might be shorted, so I might get 2 out of the 4. 2nd reason, I want to display them in all their arm poses. How many poses will they have 4 or 5?
