I'm starting to get into collecting these and I'm curious how many other are collecting the mini busts? I think they're pretty cool. Truely excellent Star Wars collectibles. Anyways....

Which ones do you have?

Which are your favorite?

also, post pictures if you can.

I just got my Boba Fett last Wed and it looks as cool in person as the ad looked. I'm very happy w/ it.

One of the things I like about the Boba over most of teh others is that he has arms! I can't stand the ones w/out arms!

I just went to the Dark Horse site trying to purchase each of the Clonetrooper's, but they aren't seling them by color, it's all random! What a stupid thing to do. I understand that they don't want to produce too many of all colors since not everyone that buys a white will also buy a red or yellow, but come on! I want the blue convention exclusive too!

Looks like Gentle Giant has Grand Moff Tarkin on tap for October this year. Limited to 7,500 pieces. Its neat looking but it had the back of his chair attached to the bust. I peosonally think it would look better without. StarWars.com has a picture.

I think the look ok without arms. But they look a little off now because all the new ones DO have arms.

I'm looking forward to the Stormtrooper minibust.

Not sure if I like the Tarkin yet... It looks a little weird the way his seat is there. I kind of get the impression he's in a wheel chair or something. Good likeness though!

I agree about the arms, without them, the mini busts look strange. I picked up most of the ones released so far (missing Jango and ZamÖdonít really want either one)

I got Boba Fett today, and it does look as amazing in person as it did in the photos. Itís nice when something is as good or better than advertised!

The Boba Fett miniBust arrived in the mail today. I think it's the best of them so far. It's gotta be one of the best Star Wars collectibles ever. The detail is amazing.

I can't wait for Darth Vader!

I agree. The Boba Fett bust is one of the best Star Wars collectibles ever. I was looking at some pictures online of other people's Darth Vader minibust and I gotsta have that. It looks incredible!

Now if I could just find a way to get one.

Was at WizardWorld East in Philly on Fri and only saw Yoda and Vader at one booth. They wanted 100$ for one and 125$ for the other. No thank you!

Jayspawn- Yoda and DV were made in such limited quantities that I think etailers sold out on their pre-orders, begfore they actually shipped. I think the production run was around 3500 for each; DH just didn't expect so much demand. I'm guessing that the initial release of the AOTC busts wasn't that well received by the buying public.

Well still no luck with obtaining Vader or Yoda.

I decided after watching Phantom menace today that I'd like to see Qui-Gon and Darth Maul mini busts. Those would be cool!

Where is their site for these? I remember seeing a site that gave a press release on the Clone Troopers that even had a flash program where you could play with a Clone trooper by putting the different arms on it. Anybody know where that site was? Can't find it again..

What do you guys think?

For the Clonetrooper bust, to help ensure I get all 3 colors I ordered a whole case (6). I suspect that they'll ship 3 plain white, 2 of one color and 1 of the other color.

That being said, I expect to have 2 white and 1 color avail for sale at cost and shipping if any are interested.

Well, I managed to get the Vader, Yoda, Jango and Boba Fett. I must say that I am impressed. Jango has no arms, Vader and Boba both have one arm, and Yoda has both arms. I have yet to see the Tarkin, but he is so Bad, that I can't resist but to get my hands one one. I'd also like to get the Mace, but money is tight, so I'll get what I can get.

How do they look. I am a little hesitant to spend 50 bucks on a 6 inch figure with only a head. Do they look small? I was thinking about getting all the busts that I currently have lightsabers for. I was going to set them up next to the saber. Anybody doing that? How does it look. I am little nervious because they seem too small and would look lost on the shelf.

yeah I agreed. Zam Wesell mini bust doesn't look like the actress. Plus the paint job is badly done.

So far, Boba is the best among the other 9 mini busts. Jango's armour is badly painted (colour).

Have anyone notice that the Vader mini bust is not the one shown on darkhorse website whereby Vader head is tilted slightly upwards? The one that is release has his helmet level with the horizontal...

That's the spirit man! I overpaid a lot just to get Yoda and Vader.

The mini bust line simply rocks. I hope they can lived up to their promises and release Royal Guards, Stormtroopers, Biker Scout (rumoured), Chewie. Hopefully a Jedi Luke and Han Solo.

Depending on their "rules" and since i live close enough, I might go back more than 1 day, so it may be a possibility to pick up more than 1. So, I will see what I can do. ;)

Yup, the likeness is incredible. Same for Obi Wan Kenobi. But they screwed up Zam Wesell, Padme, and Anakin.

So far the "masked" busts are all very well sculpted.

Jayspawn
07-27-2003, 08:28 PM
I think the Anakin MiniBust looks just like Hayden Christensen. The Zam and Padme Busts are definatly off though. I'm actually skipping the Zam Bust because I didn't like her character that much. :Pirate:

Yes, Ebay. And expect to pay a LOT of $ for them too. Those are the very hardest ones to get.

Not Star Wars related, but I picked up the Battle Damaged T-850 MiniBust at Media Play today for $39.99. If you're a Terminator fan and want an excellent collectible, then I highly recommend. :happy:

After getting the Blue Clone from the SDCC, I was hooked. So I pre-ordered from 2 online stores and they both canceled my red and yellow clones. I then had a chance to get them from a Dark Horse shop, but they wanted to sell a set of 3 (White, I already had, Red and Yellow) for 185 and I was short that day. Oh well I guess I should be happy I got the rarest one, right? Anyways I can't wait for the Scout, Stormy and Gunship Pilot. Is there any other Busts to pre ordered besides Greedo and Tarkin?

dr_evazan22
08-17-2003, 08:53 PM
I'm still waiting on my pre-ordered case. I hate going in every week when they don't have it!

Jayspawn
08-17-2003, 09:20 PM
I didn't know they were doing a Gunship Pilot. I could do without it, but I bet it'll be cool looking anyways. Tarkin and Greedo are the only one so far to preorder.

Personally, I really want more Trilogy MiniBusts. Speaking of which and as long as we're all waiting...what versions of Luke, Han and Leia do you all want as MiniBusts? Here's mine...

Luke (Jedi or Tatooine)
Leia (from A New Hope)
Han (from A New Hope)

JediCole
08-24-2003, 12:41 AM
Why are the mini-busts of Yoda, Darth Vader, and Boba Fett so expensive? A question I'm sure many are asking. Part of the problem lies in what might be called instant rarity. All three of these busts sold out before they were released. Dark Horse only recently sold out of many if not all of the original four busts (Anakin, Amidalla, Mace, Obi-Wan). Even Dooku and Zam Wessel were not fast sellers. Jango Fett was the first to sell out of its production run. After that, all have sold out before they even shipped, some even having initial orders (often placed four months or more in advance by retailers) that exceeded the set production numbers. Boba Fett is a good example. I usually only order two each of the Star Wars busts (three if I want one for myself), one for the toy and comic shows and one for a long-time customer who I give a 10% discount. In the case of Boba Fett I knew it would be hot so I ordered five (bear in mind, this was ordered about five months before it was released and the production run was increased) and only received two! Despite Dark Horse increasing the production run, I only received 40% of my initial order! And one of those was already promised to someone! And when they did arrive, Mrs. JediCole took one look at it and sait it was too gorgeous to sell. So I kept the other one.
At any rate, the Clone Trooper busts were supposed to be thusly allocated. I did not get my order in on time that month and had to reorder a case so I didn't expect to get any at all. I saw my invoice for next week and discovered that I had inadvertanly ordered not one but two cases! And would be getting both! Shame there are no toy shows any time soon. Oh well, I'll be well stocked for October.
And as for the new busts coming down the pike, they just seem to be getting better! I wish I had collected them all! Tarkin is, in my opinion, one of the best of the bunch. The design is brilliant and the sculpt incredible. I also love Greedo and the Scout Trooper (one which could have seemed quite bland). I look forward to them being offered for order by my distributor.

My Clonetrooper MiniBust arrived in the mail yesterday. And what a bust too, it's awesome! The neutral pose the body is in is very neat, with all the interchangable arms etc. The only minus is that the tissue that all the MiniBusts are wrapped in was STUCK to the back if the black base. I had to tear it off and there is still a little on now. Like the paint was wet and the tissue stuck. It smelled freshly painted too,

But overall, it's cool as hell!

Tarkin is one on my "must" get list, even if it means having to steal it from a friend! J/K!

I picked up a white Clone trooper yesterday at a collectibles place. I paid $50 for it. They also had the yellow clone trooper there for the same price. The Red clonetroopers price label was sitting behind it face down, but it was on a glass shelf, and it said Red Clonetrooper $100. My guess is, he's (the owner of Alien Entertainment) probably asking more for it now just as he did when I bought up his last Yoda mini bust. He told me, "I'd normally sell it for $50, but because he's my last one, it will be $60".

BTW, I must say that the white clonetrooper is awesome with the interchangable arms and weapons.

I really don't want to brag, but....I went to a place called Atomic Comics in Hagerstown, MD today to see their new figs. And to my surprise...Yoda Mini Bust for $45! I was shocked. I haven't bought any busts before & couldn't pass up Yoda for $45. I really would like to get the Boba Fett but don't want to pay over $60 for it.

Could anyone recommend a place?

It's a steal man! I got mine for US$89 (excluding international shipping) from a French online website.

Well hansolo, did you get your Red Clone Bust?

Still no luck tracking down a Darth Vader, Jango Fett or Yoda bust. But the Tarkin bust is coming up!

Yup, Toynk lived up to their promise. I got the Red Clone Trooper for US$60 plus US$25 shipping to Singapore. And their international shipping is fast too..about 10 days.

Is the helmet and the armour of your clone trooper white? I got blue and red, both seems to have those "yellowing" white colour or should say biege colour.

I preordered the Speeder bike pilot, and the Grand Moff Tarkin mini busts today from EE. They have a November release date for both, but I'm hoping I ordered early enough to actually get them.

Just a heads up that we (Southern Island) have Grand Moff Tarkin Busts for $39.95 along with Greedo and Scout Trooper Busts for Pre-Order. Check out the for sale forum on this board for more information under the heading "Grand Moff Tarkin Bust " We also price match.

Tell me about it. I was at a local Sci-Fi store a couple of weeks back, and they had a deal buy two mini busts for $80. They were the Anakin, Mace, Padme, and Obi-Wan. I was there to get the white Clone Trooper. The deal did not apply to this clone trooper, otherwise I would have dished out the extra $30 for one of the earlier mini's.

When I got my Blue and White Clones I was all excited to get these new ones coming out, but when my pre-orders for the Yellow and Red Clones were canceled, I lost interest. I like to complete sets and Genital Giants has made sure I wont be able to, so they can go to hell.:D

Yes its a shame that the Clone Busts were WAY oversold and lots a people missed out on complete sets.

I got an email from Gentle Giant the other day asking for suggestions and comments as far as statues, ornaments and minibusts. I told them statues are promising, ornaments would be neat (depending on how they look) and I threw out a few minibust suggestions like Qui-Gon Jinn, Darth Maul, and Classic C-3PO.

I hope so. There are so many better characters that deserve a GG mini bust than what a 4th or 5th clonetrooper. Don't get me wrong, I like the Clones, but they could make many other main characters that I would buy before spending money on a clone with a different stripe painted down his armor.

Also, GG will be making more Matrix mini-busts. The Twins just released with Niobe on the way after and Persephone by th end of the year. But with GG's distributing problems you never know.

And now my day has been made hhearing about and seeing pictures of Bossk, as well as the Gamorean Guard, Stormtrooper, Luke X-Wing and a Sandtrooper! They look f'n amazing! Especialy the Luke and Stormtrooper.

The Mini-Helmets are awesome too! And I hear they are coming out in pairs so you get more -cool stuff! I'm looking forward to the Imperial Helmets most.

I dont know about those Bust-Ups though. Vader and the Emperor look cool but Luke, Han and Leia look goofy and not at all like Gentle Giants quality standard.

Anybody else?

The room is approx. 2800 cubic ft. with the equipment in the front, and the props & other collectibles in the back of the room. I thought that maybe Vader would look impressive standing in the entry to the room that's approx. 5'w X 10' h X 3'd or maybe a Storm/Clonetrooper. I dunno, something like that. :)

I may just end up dumpimg the busts on eBay if GG produces enough stats.You'll Dump which ever ones I need on me buddy! :D You should get Vader FLanked by Clones or Stormies in the entry way, That would be wicked.

The clones with multiple arms and the future Stormies...How many have/will buy multiples just to display them with ALL positions? I have the clones and am working on completing doubles or triples on them.

I have or will be getting just one of each color, and that will be enough to have 1 of each set of arms represented. I don't think I would get multiples even if I had the money to purchase them. That money could be used for an AT AT or Stormie blaster or something.

I currently have two white Clone Trooper mini-busts that were promised to someone online a couple of months ago. Due to personal circumstances he had to back out on the deal, but sent me $10.00 for the trouble. At the time I told him I would put that toward the two busts if he felt he could pay by the end of March. He agreed, but has not responded to my inquiries to determine if he still plans to make good on the offer. If he does not, both will be made available for $40.00 each plus shipping (the same offer made to this buyer). Both have been opened and displayed, but are none too bad for having been around a bit, one was in a display cabinet for several months assembled in one configuration only.
Anyway, if anyone is interested, please email now (jedicole@yahoo.com) as the lowest numbered bust would go to the first to reply. They will not be avaliable until March 31, 2004 if at all. I will inform all who reply if there are any changes, but if you are seeking these busts for less than the original $50.00 list price, you might as well get on the list right away as I have only these two remaining.

I would actually prefer to obtain these busts in new/ unopened condition, but I will consider myself lucky to obtain these in any condition. Especially if the bust has a nice number.

Hellstorm,
Word arrived today that the person to whom the above offer was made will be unable to complete the transaction as hoped. Therefore the busts are now available once again, and earlier than expected. I have had one prior response to this post and I am waiting to see if that member wants just one or both. If only one, you are next in line. I will be able to get the numbers off of the busts this evening (they are still packed for shipping in anticipation of the offer that did not go through). Both are in their original packaging with inserts, COA's, etc. and are in great shape as they've only made a few stops at toy/comic shows.

Not bad JC, considering they usually go for $30 each. ;) :D

Jayspawn: The Yoda bust seems to move up & down in price quite a bit. Around x-mas I saw Yoda go for $110, last month for about $180, and just recently $120. The best bet is to check around often if you're looking to get him cheaper than usual. :)

Sup Turbo: Well a good price would be what was originally charged for these instead of what they are going for now. I think toynk still has the Yellow Clonetrooper for approx. $65 so act fast since on eBay the go for about $80-$90.

The Red CT fluctuates anywhere between $120-$190, and Boba between $100-$150. If you check frequently enough though you should be able to find them at the lower end of that scale or even cheaper. :)

Who wants to part with an extra 1 or 2 Red & BLue clone?? I just need at least 2 of those suckers. I have both of them but need it for effect. They are all flanked by my Yellow KOTO clone and White KOTO clone. Anyone know where I can pick up the rest of the chase ones? I need the BLue and Red ones from KOTO. I might even pick up an extra white one to paint GREEN. When starwarsshop opens again, I'm getting my 3 Green clones too. Later.

I just got in to collecting these busts about a month ago and already have managed to track down and buy all the busts they have produced so far, I started off as just gonna get one or two of these and that will be it however once I saw the quality and detail in these busts I soon decided I had to have more and that soon progressed in to wanting them all, i'm now as addicted to these as I am Master Replicas products, and it also took me off on a tangent to collect the old 3D Legends busts. most of my purchases have had to come from ebay as these busts are really difficult to buy over here in England, so i'm really paying higher prices than I should of done.


I can't wait for the Bossk bust to come out, that one look's amazing, I think i'll only get one Stormtrooper bust, army building will be expensive, but I also want the Luke Bust , that one has a place reserved for it next to my Code 3 signed X-Wing, I also look forward to SW shop opening again hopefully i'll be able to complete my collection of clones with the exclusive Sergeant Clone.

Ok, I need everyone's help here. This is for everyone who has a
Clone Trooper Pilot Mini Bust from the L.A. show last month.

I got my Clone Pilot #68 about two weeks ago, and I love it.
But there is something that is driving me crazy about it.

The more I look at it; it seems to be leaning to the left, ever so slightly.
It is especially noticable, when I look straight at the helmet at eye level.

I have all my busts in a closed door, china cabinet / display case, with
glass shelves. So I know the glass shelves are perfectly straight.

I can also tell because I have my other Clone Troopers on the same glass shelf, all in a perfect row. I have the Clone Pilot in front of the other Clones.
That is where I can clearly see the difference.
The Clones in the back are perfectly postured & straight. But the Clone Pilot is clearly leaning to the side. Not much. But just enough where you can tell something is wrong.

I want to know if ALL the Clone Pilots are like this. Or just mine.
If you have a Clone Pilot, please look at it carefully.

Place it on a flat surface and notice the angle of the shoulders.
Notice the helmet, where the yellow meets the visor.
Notice it's posture in regards to the other regular Clone Troopers.

I would appreciate all the feedback I could get regarding this matter.
Thanks Guys! :)
