Yup, They still had a few left on Friday at SDCC. I bought one anyways even though I don't collect Bust-Ups. What I'm mad about is missing the 13" Battlestar Galactica Cylon with battle damage. There were only 500 made and sold out before I could get one Arrrg! That's 500 Cylons unlike 5000 Shock Troopers! Maybe I could trade someone.

I thought they made only 3500 of those bad boys?

That sucks you missed out on the Cylon, he was my biggest worry at the con. I was in the first group on Thursday, and headed straight for the Majestic booth at 10:00am. I managed to get mine, interesting note though - he doesn't have the destroyed cylon at his feet like all the pics, but he's still cool.

Someone waiting in line with me to buy them told me it was 5000, but you may be right. I will have to double check...... That sucks I did'nt get a Cylon, but hey he's going cheaper for now than the Shock Trooper on eBay. I can always sell the Bust-Up and buy a Cylon at least. I probably should hurry..... Did you go to the Battlestar Galactica event upstairs RS? It was packed.

The Shock Trooper Busts are only flooding the market when I'm able to get one under $75. :pleased:

Agreed. Hopefully GG will announce when the remaining mini-busts will be put up for the Collectors Club soon.

Near the end of August after Gen-Con according to the e-mail I received from them.

Is anybody planning on buying multiples of these?

I count myself lucky. I did manage to get both of these items at Comic con. I was rather suprised that they didn't have a limit on the Cylons.

I picked up two, and as I was walking by the booth again on Friday they still had what appeared to be a lot left over.

They are only going for around $80 on e-bay, I'm now wishing I would have gotton one damaged and one clean. They'll be great for a paired up display case.

Anyone get the Nemisus Prime? I managed to snag one....

That's the thing. It;s the battle damaged Cylon that was sold out at 500. There were plenty of normal Cylons. Those are the ones on e-bay. Try to find a battle damaged one.

What, you can't afford the $90-140 plus shipping these are going for on eBay...J/K.

Seriously, unless you luck out and get one when GG sells them later next month, I suspect you're not going to be able to get them on eBay at even the $90-140 price range I mentioend. (Those were for completed auctions BTW.) There were more than 500 completed auctions for the Shocktrooper bust. There's several active ones right now and then you have to factor in how many people actually bought these to KEEP. There may very well be some left, but I suspect not many and certainly not enough to fill the demand.

I'm certainly going to try for one though.

Got my fill on these at the Con, besides there are only a few cool looking poses for these guys anyways. The Shocktrooper was the main reason I went.

I did not make it to CC this year so eBay was the way for me. I tried and tried to get one last weekend on ebay but bidding went above $140 on every auction I tried. Got one on Friday for $105 +s/h/I .
If any went for $75 on ebay, I dint see em. Nevertheless , I got one.Thats whats important to me.
