Another clone for sure.

This is actually going to be the first wave I pass on. Guess my wallet gets a little breather.

I like them all...except Anakin. I'd rather have one in a different pose...

They all look pretty cool especially Greivous.

It looks like the variants indeed are going to be the troopers. I noticed that they are available for preorder on both Razors edge, and bbty so far. The phot on Razors is the basic 5 with the white clone, and on bbty it's the basic 5 with the red arc....

I'm not a Bust-Up collector at all, but I may go in on a case with a friend of mine. I love the animated CW series.

Mike at Razor's Edge just let me know that if you wanted a case of these, they'll cost around $95. I'm going to get one and hopefully split it with some fellow Ohio collectors. Curse you GG for making some nice-looking Bust-Ups. Now I'm going to have to get some ROTS ones, too! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Will the full case have all the clone variations? I'd deal with extras of the other figures, maybe use them to customize if I can still get all the clones.

It's hard to say since supposedly there are 4 Clones to a case. I would assume the breakdown (if it was accurate) would be something like 2 white clones, 1 Red ARC, and 1 Blue ARC.

I just want a Red ARC as my first Mini-Bust, stinks it'll be the variant though. Since i'm a newb with GG, how would I go about getting the -variant- without any chances of a white one? Can I pop the boxes a bit at the store for a quick looksie? (Not a nice thing I know... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif)

Yeah I agree,if the case beakdown is like that I could deal with extras of the others.

just got my case ordered with northside collectibles. 94.99 with rebelscum discount... i normally don't collect bust-ups but these are too hard to pass up!!

at RE you have a equal chance to get the chase troopers, hes even taking a white for himself to better the chances.

Well if GG continues the trend they will now come in plastic boxes with labels over the edges. SO the only way to pop them open is to slice the label. So it will be just like opening any other box in a store-and it will look like you are stealing.

They're actually switching to a new style of packaging - you can read all about it here (http://www.gentlegiantltd.com/blog/2006/03/bust-ups-get-new-look.html).

Word_Weaver
05-24-2006, 07:51 PM
Oh, I definately won't be doing anything if they're sealed then. I was just hoping they were sort of like Hallmark Ornaments in the box style, where you can pop them open and take a looksie. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Sadly people do rip these open those in stores and when I find them I just find torn up boxes with no bust ups inside.

These will be the first set of bust ups I've ever bought. There are random other one's I've thought about, but these I neeeeed to have. It may start a whole new obsesion for me. Luckily there's a comic shop that gets these that NO ONE BUYS! They just sit around forever there. So I should have luck getting them.

Believe me, they definitely will become an obsession. The first 2 I got as birthday presents 2 years ago - now I have the whole set, and have even begun to customize them!

I ordered the display case from EE for 74.99 (16 Bust-ups). Pretty good if the MSRP has increased.
Saw the Simpsons series 2 today at a comic shop. They use the new "matchbox" packaging and have to say they are alot bigger than I thought and quite nice. They are bigger than current bustup boxes. If you remove the labels with GooGone or something, they will probably be good storage boxes for parts, or used as risers to display figs or BustUps!

What are you referring to? Series 4 bust-ups? EE has them at $79.99 for 18 box display cases. This thread is discussing the Clone Wars bust-ups due out late this year. If you are seeing a 16 box set of Clone Wars bust-ups for $79.99 on EE, post a link please.

Must be one of the earlier waves. EE has had the CW bust-up case for $99 since it went up on the site.

Sorry about that earlier post. 74.99 was series 6, and, as stated, a case of 20 clone wars bust-ups is 99.99 at EntertainmentEarth.
Looking back, I don't know what I was thinking or really refearring to when I posted. I apologize. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif
I was posting real quick and was still excited from getting some mini helmets, and seeing the new packaging box. It got me excited for the next waves. I think they look sweet.
At 5 bucks each I am seriously considering ordering the Clone Wars case just to get all the clones.

MaxWedge
05-30-2006, 03:13 PM
No problem, thanks for taking the time to explain http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I also want all the clones, so I chagned my order with Razor's Edge from a set to a box. It was a few $ cheaper than EE too.

Are you sure, LC? Where'd you hear that? If that's true, I'm cancelling my case from EE.
