It is a nice piece! We'll probably see it in the future without the holiday theme...

The eyes should be bigger, but it's a great-looking piece nonetheless. 3PO's severed head is hilarious, is that Salacious' Christmas gift? :D

This piece is, dare I say it, cute. I like the lil' hat and the Christmas lights or holiday lights (whichever you use).

Much better than the Carrie Vader Hasbro is presenting us with. See Hasbro, something that looks nice, and will be enjoyed by those who get it. I just wish it was aailable to the public.

This should have been this years holiday exclusive, not that POS Hasbro is pawning off.

I really wish that they would have made the Snow Stormtrooper thatis pictured with the card. That would have been really cool.

I guess this Salacious Crumb piece is one piece that we won't get to see or own. Maybe they'll release it in the future with a little change.

The Santa hat is actually made of felt and the lights wrapped around him are removable.

Did you get one of these SirSteve? Or did you just get a good look at it during some convention?

Why couldn't Hasbro make this instead of that crappy Vader that I'm not buying?!!!

I'd hope GG would make this available to the rest of us that aren't in their superior inner circle. A 200 unit run just seems like a lose of $.

No surprise that there have already been a couple of these listed on eBay. One sold for $1900 and the other for $2500. Funny thing is unlike other GG mini-busts that are numbered all of these say the same thing "1 of 200" so most of the people who are selling these think they have the first one produced. lol

So far I've avoided looking for these on Ebay. Another reminder of how GG stuck it to their Collector's Club Members. :hurt:

I hear ya Jayspawn, GG definitely needs to work on being more collector friendly. Unfortunately there really aren't any benefits to being in the Collector's Club that I can see. :sad:

Releasing a new mini-bust like this that a good portion of collectors like myself would love to own and limiting it to 200 pieces for only their business partners is pretty lame. Then again this is nothing new for GG as most of us who wanted an Exclusive AOTC C-3PO mini-bust can attest.

I know there have been a lot of people complaining about Sideshow lately and the availability of their Exclusives (mostly the new 12" line) as well as the ordering process but IMO they're miles ahead of GG in the customer care department. At least with Sideshow you have a chance at obtaining these kind of items.
