    Re: I hate GG!!!!!!!!!!!

    Strange how all the other exclusive at the show weren't raffled.

    Dunno what to tell you there Turbo, I can only go by what I re-read.

    Actually, there were quite a bit of raffles.

    Master Replicas - .45 Obi-Wan lightsaber
    Mattel - Batman & She-Ra
    NECA - Hordak Bust
    WizKids - Galactus Heroclix

    also Art Asylum gave you a ticket to buy their stuff and said we can't have a line so come back later. NECA made you wait in line for a ticket to buy stuff, I don't know why, cause everyone just went from their to the line to buy anyways. These were both on Thursday though, and I didn't really stop by the other days to see if they were still doing this. But, SOTA didn't have tickets, they just had a line; as did Mezco had a line outside. Again, both on Thursday. SDCC officials said a raffle system is in place to ensure fairness. Even though I got a Luke bust, after 7 tries, I still think the raffle is unfair. There were quite a bit of people who already won, and were trying to get others to buy busts for them. Others were just grabbing tickets and then selling them if they won. What sucked about GG, is that all the tickets were gone in like an hour and a half to two hours.

    Re: I hate GG!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have to agree with all of you. Gentile Giant's business and customer service are crap. THery make a great product and a lot of people want but they limit it so much (on purpose) that about 1/4 of the people who want their product can get it. Here's a few examples of their shotty product handling...

    1. Take the 2 most popular Star Wars characters, Darth Vader and Yoda, make them with the lowest production run and watch the after-market prices fly!!!!!

    2. Blue Clonetrooper Minibust. They sold through these on the 1st day! Then GG figured out that people must want these.

    3. Dont get me started on the Green Clone bust.

    4. Clone Pilot Minibust. Did you want one of these? Too bad for you isnt it! I heard these were going to be available for their so-called "Collector Club" after the convention. I didnt hear a thing. Why? Because they SOLD OUT all of them at the Conventions!

    5. Luke Skywalker as Stormtrooper Minibust. Hopes were higher this time. Might I actually get one of these? HA! THere is supposed to be left-overs available for their Collector Club. We'll see how well that goes through.

    The fact is, if you're not able to attend a Con that Gentile Giant happens to be at or get one of their few lucky raffle numbers OR if you're not willing to spend a minimum of $300 on EBay to get something they originally sold for only $45 -they you're SCREWED! HAHA! And Gentile Giant could care less! And they wont until they start up those machines and start pumping out some more Vader Minibusts.

    Re: I hate GG!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wow! Sorry to hear so many of you hate the Gentle Giants stuff. I LOVE this line of collectibles, and am excited about the statue collection coming up. GREAT stuff!!!

    I was able to get the exclusives out at SDCC, even got the glow in the dark bust ups. The raffle system was cool in a way, you didn't have to camp out for hours before the show to run and get in line. It wasn't a perfect system, but safer for people not to get trampled. Don't get me wrong, it was frustrating at times, but a little less hectic.

    Chicago sold them first come, first serve. If you check the GG website today, you will find that they are selling a limited number of Luke busts that are left from the Cons to the collector club members. I have found the GG customer service to be very helpful.
