posticon Gentle Giant Star Wars Mini Busts


Since I believe these are made in 1/6th scale but are busts, who here has these on order?

I just got 2 spec ops trooper busts from [sign in to see URL] and they are amazing! cant wait to get the rest.

Re: Gentle Giant ROTS Clone Trooper Mini Busts


Normally I collect the GG busts but when these came out I had too much other stuff on preorder to justify them. I'm kinda regretting that now though as I'd really like the 501st bust. They can keep the Utapau one though.

Nash I don't know how interested you'll be in this but a couple of days ago I saw the Shocktrooper bust listed as in stock on [sign in to see URL]. Of course it had a huge $[sign in to see URL] price tag attached but I haven't seen it anywhere else. I emailed the guy and he said he's a number of these in stock. Might be something to think about depending how badly you want one and if you've got the $$$ available for it.

Re: Gentle Giant ROTS Clone Trooper Mini Busts


JTR thanks for the heads up, a friend of mine at RS is going to sell me a shocktrooper bust at retail, so im just waiting for him to let me know.

In regards to the 501st, i believe BBTS still has them on order for retail price. you might want to check them out. If theyre sold out and you still want one let me know and I'll see if i can find one for u.

I didn't know that. Might well look into it thanks for the information emoticon.

Do you have many GG busts Nash?

Spec Ops

Woops looks like its $10 more than retail.

I have a few GG busts. I have scout trooper, luke xwing, stormtrooper x2 , rots vader, all sandtroopers, 501st clone, chrome jango, luke stormy, and i think thats it. Im not too into the busts but I do love the trooper ones.

Re: Gentle Giant ROTS Clone Trooper Mini Busts


I think I'm gonna grab it whilst it's still in stock. Thanks for the heads up man, hope your mate gets you that Shocktrooper for retail $[sign in to see URL] is very expensive, but I've been known to weaken in the past if it's been something I've been desperate for.

At the minute I've got Han In Stormtrooper Disguise, Yoda ESB, Qui Gon, Han Solo Regular Version and Sirius Black from the HP series.

I've also got Darth Maul preordered and he's the one I'm most excited about. In all the pics I've seen the Ray Park sculpt just looks spot on.

Not that impressed with the busts unveiled at SDCC though. Won't be getting any of them except the Jango with arms version. I'm hoping they remake a Boba to go with him at some point in the future and a really cool Mace would also be good.

Re: Gentle Giant ROTS Clone Trooper Mini Busts


I held off on preordering the maul bust. the edition size is 10,000 so im going to wait until ebay gets flooded up the ying-yang, and then pick it up for cheap emoticon. GG confuses me sometimes with their huge edition [sign in to see URL] they really think THAT many people buy their products? thats pretty arrogant if you ask me.

anyways, Jango w/ arms looks sweet and I think i'll have to pick up jedi luke also. But again, ill probably never pre-order from GG unless it's some type of clone bust because guaranteed their edition sizes will be huge. no sense in over paying just to get it first.

Re: Gentle Giant ROTS Clone Trooper Mini Busts


The weird thing about GG is the busts you'd think they'd make more of they make less of the vice versa.

Like the clone trooper busts, you'd think they'd be an edition size of like 8,000 each because of army builders. They could certainly sell more than the 2,500 Utapau Clones and 3,500 Shocktroopers.

Yet then they make Maul, who fair enough is a fan favourite, a ridiculous edition size of 10,000 which is just way too big when IMO 6,000 or maybe 7,000 would've be sufficient.

I get what you're saying about preordering, the problem I've got though is if I wait for Ebay, I'll get hammered with shipping costs as i live in the UK. Besides the UK website I use usually has pretty good price mark ups for GG's stuff.

I've deal with Forbidden Planet for years, they have a semi local shop near me as well and the stuff they send me is always well packed and arrives in good condition.

Re: Gentle Giant ROTS Clone Trooper Mini Busts


So I decided to grab the blue clone trooper bust on Big Bad Toy Store this morning after having slept on it last night.

I log onto the website and what do I find there?

SOLD !@#$ OUT 8(.

That's officially the last time I ever pause to consider my actions again. From now on I will do everything without giving any thought to the consequences whatsoever =D .
