Alright thats it, GG wins toy fair hands down. These bust ups are too cool, and surpass previous ones they've done hands down again.

SOLD!


but why did they include the torso for a bust-up?


EDIT: nevermind, I see they needed to do that so the cape can flow downwards

I was thinking the same thing. The Sideshow stuff is really cool, but GG just won't stop crankin' out the goods!

You know what, I like how they did the clone wars padme bust up better than the maquette. The fur on her outfit looks better sculpted with the piece than with freakin' pipe cleaners! I used to have the maquette and I thought the pipecleaners for fur really took away from the piece and made it cheap looking.

I don't even collect the bust-ups or usually like them a whole lot but man, they have got some great looking ones coming out. Those clone wars animated ones look fantastic.

Maybe we can get a date for the Ep II Clones as well. They're well overdue.

GG knows Star Wars that's for sure. I'm loving the Animated Bust-Up's.

And the Obi-Wan in clone gear looks perfect. I wonder what the price point will be on it?

FU_obiwan
02-12-2006, 02:27 PM
probably the same as the others but even if they upped them a few bucks they'd still be well worth it.

Some of these are extremely amazing! Did you guys notice the blue Snaggletooth and the Holo Old Ben? Can we say the next wave's variants? Also, the new pose for Han?

I sure hope they make a box set of E2 Clones like they did with the E3 clones.

I thought about quitting this line all together, now I have second thoughts.

impressive, most impressive!

i missed out on CW padme and obi wan maquettes. i definitely won't miss out on these bust ups!

JediJimmie
02-12-2006, 09:08 PM
Man, all of these Bust Ups are SO awesome! I can't get enough of them! I do wish there were available at more retail stores, though. The Hot Topics around here only get them from time to time, same with the 1 Suncoast store. No luck after calling a few comic stores, either. So I rely on these boards and eBay. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

Anyway, alot of VERY cool stuff to look forward to this year. Bring it on!

Except for Yoda, I skipped the Clone Wars maquettes, so I'll be picking up these Bust-Up versions. Nice idea and totally unexpected.

I also like these. I'll definitely be looking to pick up the Padme, as I missed the maquette last year and eBay prices are just ridiculous at the moment. I really like the Obi as well; I think the different pose will complement the existing maquette quite nicely.

Well, here's the first one that I've seen: Toy Fair Vader (http://cgi.ebay.com/Toy-Fair-2006-Darth-Vader-Exclusive-BustUps_W0QQitemZ6036661485QQcategoryZ751QQssPageN ameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem) . Too rich for me, right now anyway. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif

I put a max bid of $30 and the reserve is still not met. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

The clones are mini-busts. Look at the base.

Supposedly the Vader Flame Bust-up is a generic "convention" exclusive (or so we've heard). Anyone know if Gentle Giant is going to Wizard World conventions this year? I've never been to one, but I'd go to Wizard World LA if GG is going to be giving out the Excl. Bust-Up.

JediJimmie
02-15-2006, 09:51 PM
Yeah, that's the way I understood it, too. So maybe it won't be totally impossible for me to get one of these without resorting to eBay. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif But weren't the Clone Lieutenant and Boba Fett both exclusive to only Toy Fairs (2004 & 2005)?

For the last few years the only shows that Gentle Giant has done has been SDCC, Wizard Chicago and Celebration. Doubt they would do the LA Wizard but who knows?

No, only available at Toy Fair 2004 and free with some orders from Gentle Giants for a very limited time. The 2005 exclusive Bust-Up was Boba Fett and he was also available at other shows...well at least at C3.

I'm hoping for one of two things - the current eBay prices drop by half or somehow, GG makes this available so those who can't make it to one of the cons this year can have a chance to get one. I'm already having a tough enough time trying to get the 2 Gree's and 3 Blackhole Stormtroopers without going broke. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif

The packaging on this one did indicate that it was only intended to be given out at Toyfair. I think that they gave them out at C3 because they had a surplus. The packaging for the Flame-based Vader simply says exclusive, but does not say to what.

the silver Jango said "2005 exclusive edition" so maybe the flame vader is this year's con exclusive bust-up

I know for a fact that the Boba Fett was given out at Comic Con because I was able to get one. I will have to look when I get home, but I thought it said Comic Con exclusive on it. I will check and get back.

It's a bit hard to see from this pic, but the packaging says Toyfair Exclusive:

Thanks Matt for posting the picture of the Boba Fett. I have the same one. Maybe we will all be lucky to get the Vader this year. Gotta admit, I was a little nervous for a minute. Even though it isn't confirmed, I do feel a little more confident that these will be available @ Comic Con. I guess we wait.

chicanodom
02-18-2006, 03:50 PM
Well, well, well. It looks as though the Flame bust up Vader will be available @ Comic Con after all. What a relief. I am also glad to see an exclusive bust up Shocktrooper to go along with the Shocktrooper mini bust as well. It appears that this year will be a great year @ Comic Con. Now the only question is: when are the Luke and Han Stormtrooper disguise 2-pack, bounty hunter set, and the E2 clone trooper set going to be released? They are more than likely going to be SWS.com exclusives or thru Gentle Giant like the Salacious Crumb mini bust. I like what I see for this year, especially the animated Clone Wars bust ups. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

In case it hasn't been mentioned before, I just found this on EE: Bounty Hunter box set pre-order (http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=GE8842).

One thing we need now with all the Trooper sets is a Rebel Trooper Army Builder box! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif Would be kinda cool to have four of the old-style "eggheads".

Would also like to see Hoth Rebel Troopers, Sandtroopers and Scouts.

No, Republic Commandoes are a much better choice. It would also sell a lot better, because of the Commando's cool armor and the fact that they're CLONE TROOPERS, which is synonymous with "great sales".
