I don't know if this has been posted , but the Stormtrooper mini bust comes with a Bust up. It's the alternate version of Liea. The one with the gun pointing up.

Anyways, Wow the bust is more than what I expected. It comes with 2 pairs of arms and 3 guns. Too many way to position him. Well not really:p.My 2 look bad a-- together. GG gets 2 thumbs up! Oh and I picked them up from EE today.

Cool Turbo. I didn't know it came with a bust-up. I'll probably just give it to my kids though once I receive mine which should be tomorrow. Do you have any pics? :)

My two are shipped and I cant wait. Some have said be careful with the two hand gun pose. Hard to get them together without scratching the paint on the hands. I will have to army build this one for sure. ;)

The hand posing isn't difficult. I had no problem. You just have to treat the whole bust like it will break at the slightest touch.

The stormy bust looks awesome, and seeing the Bossk bust yesterday really makes me wish I would have jumped on these when they started.

This may be off-topic:
mini-rock, I just checked out your Theater Room link. Damn man, that's an extremely impressive collection. Real classy. I especially like how you have the busts next to their corresponding MR sabres. I would love to have a collection like that someday.

Cool stuff :smoker:

Thanks Reefer Shark. Compliments are always best from fellow collectors. The room will be better once I have put a little work into it which I will start to do by next summer. :D


BTW my Stormie bust didn't arrive today, so that means it will be here by Monday for sure. :(

I have my Stormtrooper bust ordered through NewForceComics.com -which is in Florida and has been swamped by continuous hurricanes and natural disasters. So it may be some time before I get mine. :crazed:

the stormtrooper is excellent, swivel head, multiple guns and hands. Prob my 2nd favorite after my boba fett bust.

I got a han solo mini bust-up. Not too bad, smaller then I though they would be.

I was goning to say that the bust-ups might be inserted randomly. I got a 3PO in oil bath today. I have a couple more to pick up still. I think the bust looks awesome also, just wish it was painted a clean stark white, as opposed to the off white.

When I picked up my 1st 2 Stormie busts they both came with a Leia bust-up. Their edition # are 7082 and 7083. Then I just picked up another one with a 3PO bust up with a edition # of 1567. So maybe they are packing a different bust up in every 1000 or 2000 mini busts. So far I have only heard of Liea, 3PO and Han being found.

My Stormie bust is on the way! A random Bust-Up included with a standard bust sounds good to me. Cant wait to see what I get. A Stormtrooper Bust-Up with a Stormtrooper Bust would be great!

Woohoo! My Stormtrooper Bust arrived in the mail yesterday! He's my favorite of ALL the mini-busts soo far. This is definatly a must-have piece for any big time Star Wars collector. I was supprised the run number is 10,000! Thats a whole lotta Stormtroopers. So much the better! My FREE Bust-up was C-3PO. I'm contiplating getting another Stormtrooper bust because I love it soo much!

I've never seen any of the bust-ups in person till now, its an interesting trinket.

Are these the full size Stormtrooper busts? I didn't even realize these were out. Now I want to run to my local SW collector to see if he has any in stock.

Yes they are the larger resin busts, not the small bust-ups.

I ended up finding one at a local collector shop. The large Stormtrooper bust that is. I pick it up tomorrow, but I won't get the small bust up. I do plan on ordering the set on EE.

Well I picked up 2 GG Stormtrooper busts at the collector store. When I got them home, both had a mini C-3PO in the oil bath. I'm glad I saw this before placing an order for the set on EE. I was going to order the set of minis, the one that costs around $100 bucks, but gaurantees you will get all of the minis. After seeing the 3PO, I have lost interest in collecting the mini line. I still will collect the busts though.

Well, I folded and got the Stormy bust. It really is awesome! Mine came with a Solo mini.

Now I want to track down a Biker Scout, and Bossk bust. I really wish I would've gotten into these sooner so I could have scored a Fett and Vader...

Reefer glad to hear you broke down and joined the club!!

I got my Gamorrean Guard a few days ago and man let me tell you this one is awesome. GG has me hooked. I was so happy to get another C-3PO bust up with him,:rolleyes: now I only have about 5 of him.

Reefer Shark, I think you can still get the Bossk Bust at most Media Play or Suncoast stores. I think they have him in stock at NewForceComics.com for a good price also.

I dont have mine yet, but does the Luke X-Wing Bust come with a free BustUp?

Thanks for the suggestion Jayspawn. I did find one at a Suncoast, but passed on it because he was missing a tooth :sur:

Oh yeah, thanks for the welcome Turbo. You knew I had to give in at some point didn't you? ;)
