Hey guys, on the off chance GG actually reads what we post on this board I figured it would be cool to do a TOP 5 MOST WANTED MINI-BUST LIST.

Here are my choices:
1 -Clone Commander Cody
2-TIE Fighter Pilot
3-General Grievous
4-Qui-Gon Jinn
5-Darth Maul

Most of my pics are from Episodes I and III since to date we have no mini-busts produced from TPM and only one from ROTS (2 if you count the upcoming Darth Sidious.)

Top 5

5. Dengar
4. 4-LOM
3. Zuckuss
2. Darth Maul
1. Boba Fett (re-issue!!!)

I don't care if they give us a paint variant ESB/ROTJ version of Boba Fett. They need to get more of these on the market!

I also think it's a shame that they have cranked out Bossk, Boba Fett and IG-88 but have left out the other bounty hunters. They did the same thing with the bust ups! No IG-88?!?! Why give us the others and stick Jango Fett in with the bunch? It just made no sense to me.

My choices here are biased. First, I only collect OT busts, though I would make an exception for Maul...as I have done with Kotobukiya. Second, with the new Armory line coming out, I can wait to see more mini busts of characters like the TIE Pilot.

The bounty Hunters seem like a solid choice to me, and Maul is a no brainer!

As for Boba Fett, well, I refuse to drop $200.00-$300.00 for one. If GG released a re-paint of the same bust they can keep the original production numbers limited to 7,500 (what were they thinking!!!!) and give other collectors the chance to own this awesome piece. GG could boost the production number to 20,000 and Fett would sell out...no problem, they did it for the second Vader!

Good choices Caesar. I especially like Dexter, I'd imagine that would be one detailed mug. 2-1B and the Tusken are great choices too, actually most of your choices would rank very high on my want list.

Hellboy, I was sitting here thinking of what busts I would buy if they made them (every bust they've made is cool but I can't afford them all so I pick and choose).

I do like the Dex character (one of my 3 fave minor characters along with Deuce and Nien). But what really made me think of him was that AOTC documentary where they have the various maquettes set up for Lucas to pick out which one would become Dex so I could definitely see this CG character as a nice bust. :)

I believe George took two different pieces and had them combined to make the Dex we have today.

1. Qui-Gon Jinn
2. Ben Kenobi
3. Darth Maul

I could think of a few more but I'm sticking to 5.

I believe you are correct, although its been a bit since I've watched the web docs. :)

I would go with:
Han Solo in Carbonite
Slave Leia
Darth Sidous - similar to the Bust-ups one from the Sith Collection
Commander Cody
Arc Trooper

I would also like to see GG tackle Ships as well. These could be similar to the Code 3 ones just more affordable and easier to get. They could be either in flight or on the ground depending situations, and have a base that works with the ship or vehicle.

Death Star II
Republic Attack Crusier
Imperial Mark II Star Destroyer
Imperial AT-AT
Incom T-65C X-Wing Starfighter
Corellian YT-1300 Cargo Transport "Millennium Falcon"
Imperial Shuttle
Imperial TIE Fighter
Jedi Starfighter with Hyperspace Ring (either AOTC or ROTS) this one could be an exclusive or a make a Hyperspace Ring seperate.

Oh and the ships and vehicles should be removable from the bases.:thumbsup:
True I know this sounds like reviving the old Action Fleet line, but really I think these would really sell.
Jedi Starfighter (either AOTC or ROTS)

1. Darth Maul (then we'll have all the Sith Lords)
2. Anakin Skywalker (ROTS)
3. Clonetrooper (ROTS)
4. Obi-Wan Kenobi (ROTS)
5. General Grievous
