i have all 4 SS 1:1 busts and i would have to say greedo is the best so far (or atleast until the palpy bust comes out)

you definately need to be somewhat of a greedo fan to have a full size in your collection though

I've also got all the busts, and while I'm not sure I'd call Greedo the "best", he's *ahem* head and shoulders above most of the other things in my collection.
Really, the entire 1:1 bust line has been so good that *any* of the four is still well worth having if you're at all interested.
Greedo has a bunch of things to recommend him. The spines on his head and neck are well executed (if fragile), the use of cloth is very nice even as minimal as it is and is something I miss on the Bossk bust. The eyes are especially well done, having a sort of translusence to the outer "shell" coupled with a shiny paint that gives them real depth (and depth that particularly hard to capture with a camera, so you're likely only going to see it in person). And if you like to see the less obvious characters get some high-end love like I do, it's a great piece on principle. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

i like the greedo the best because to me he's the most realistic looking of them all. the main reason being the eyes wich look very cool.

I agree with this!
I have them all also and while I truly love them all...I think Greedo is the coolest looking! ...and rare...only 250 I believe.

To drift a little OT for a moment...
The real reason I don't call him out as "best" is because that implies that one of the others is not best. I have to say that that line has yet to produce a single item that I wasn't absolutely delighted by. I make a real effort to make sure I only buy high-end stuff I think I'll like, but even with that there's always certain items that make me stop and stare or grin like a kid when I look around my collection, and the entire 1:1 Bust line fits that bil. I don't think anybody can go wrong with any of them.

Seems like a fair deal. He usually goes for $399+shipping. Don't have one, but it seems to be the fav among the 1:1 SW bust collectors, even those who are not necessarily Greedo fans. Me, I like 'em all. These are P1X4R's top-notch pics (he always takes outstanding pictures http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif). Maybe it'll help you decide:

I got the greedo bust coming all the way from australia, I paid 279 for it and cant wait! although am a bit concerned about the spines on the back of his head. How the hell its going to get here undamaged i do not know? i was hoping they would be flexible, sounds like they are not??
