Here is a photo of Fett, along with the 12" Stormie and the 12" Walrus Man. Sweet! To the left you can see the sculptor working on the 12" Tusken.

Also confirmed in ToyFare: In addition to Walrus Man, a Hammerhead, Greedo and Snaggletooth are coming in Series 2.

They also mention that they'd like to do a Gamorrean Guard at some point.

Good times ahead.

Rogue01
07-16-2010, 07:48 PM
Drazen - the ability to place guaranteed pre-orders for distributor or convention exclusives is a feature of the Premier Guild, so yes, you would need to join to place pre-orders for the CV exclusives.

07-16-2010, 11:33 PM
The Fett looks okay, but still not worth $85 to me. I can't believe they're doing a figure as goofy looking as Walrus Man. They should really be more choosy as to which figures they do. Those are going to be clogging the GG warehouse for quite some time.

Co_Jo_Dai
07-16-2010, 11:45 PM
If these vintage figures where in the $40 to $50 range, I think more collectors would want them, but at $85 I'm buying a maquette - at least they're made out of polystone...

At $85 + shipping you could buy the actual first twelve vintage Kenner figures.

Glad to see GG is productive and releasing quality original products? "get real"? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

07-17-2010, 06:06 AM
Once the regular series begins, I'll be ordering them from my local comic book store for $70 each.

$85 is the MRSP, but outside of the exclusives you aren't going to actually pay that amount. $65 is the new MSRP for mini busts, but I don't plan on paying that price either, unless we're talking exclusives.

Yep EVERY piece. I actually have every single Bust-Up including the Gold Boba Fett that is how it started. I rather spend money on this stuff than beer cause then at least I have something to show for my hard earned money instead of sending it down the drain. But don't get me wrong a beer once in awhile is good. Thanks C V can't WAIT!!!!

$40-$50 and I think you'd see a lot of people starting a run of these guys. But at $85 plus shipping I'd think most people would either skip it or cherry pick and get something for a focus.

They are darn cool looking - but I'd personally only do Vader and R2.

So how many want R2 to have a sticker like the vintage figure or have the details painted on. I'm leaning on a sticker because it's more accurate, but if they can make it look like a sticker with paint I'm all for it.

I passed on the Stormtrooper because I want him on the Star Wars card. Even though this Fett will be on a Star Wars card as well, I always liked him more on the Empire card.

That said, I'll probably get that one as well - especially if they go for the lighter color gray version.

I can wait for the Stormy on the Star Wars card, but Fett would definitely be nicer to get on ESB!

No not yet, but the only reason the Fett and Stormy are on ESB cards is because the 30th Anniversary. Both will appear on other cards later.

The ESB cards are the real exclusives here, not the figures themselves.

Similar issue. I have no idea what my login name is, if I have one. I keep requesting a new name and password, but it sends me a password only (login name is blank).

I just became a member of the PGM so I could guarantee pre-orders for the Stormtrooper and Boba Fett even though I'll be at CV I didn't want to take my chances for safe voyage back home.

But at first I wasn't excited about these but they grew on me so I'm eating my words saying I wouldn't buy them...

The exact same thing happened to me. I called and it was explained to me that because I was never a collectors club member before I joined the premium guild that they did not have that built into the system to direct you to a login name and password. Those who started with a regular collectors club membership and then switched over to premium wouldn't have that problem. I'm actually glad it took me a few days to get the problem solved because by the time I was able to log on they had listed the Stormies again. Just call them tomorrow.

That two-year rumor is all I have heard. Fortunately, I'm OK with the ESB cards since mine will mostly be displayed loose (maybe one carded figure displayed at work and one at home). But I would prefer the SW cards, for sure.

difficult to predict this is........

the stormtrooper was very popular at sdcc, but i don't think they sold out as of saturday.

i think this line is picking up steam, i am guessing lots more pgm preorders for fett than stormtrooper.

it would not surprise me if it was not hard to get. it would not surprise me if they sell out at some point at celebration. especially since they are bringing their stock across the country not down the highway.

future not as clear as the cody of 2007 or the anakin of 2008 extremes.....

good luck.

Its going to be popular at Celebration. Doesn't hurt that there are like 40 Fett prints at Celebration to display it with.

Part of it was-- when the stormie was announced- everyone here was pretty much WTF?-- and then when they saw this line might go more than 3 or 4 exclusives before it went belly up has seemed to gain a lot of support-- and the vintage collectors are now jumping on this line as well.... I think this is one line if you are a completist you should get in on the ground floor..

They were selling limited amounts to exhibitors today. Trooper sold out quickly but they had for sale:

McQuarrie Vader
12" Vintage Stormtrooper
12" Vintage Boba Fett
Bossk maquette

I asked one of the GG folks (Jewell I think it was) and she said that what they had on the sale sheets was all they brought to the show to sell. I was hoping for some older exclusives like Salacious Crumb.

The Stormtrooper is kind of hard to tell (for me) that it is vintage looking unless I compare it to the 3'3/4" original. But Boba Fett...you can see it immediately! I think this line is going to get so hot that if you do not get onboard in the beginning it may be hard to catch up later.

This reminds me of C3 when they did the sandtrooper bust. I was lucky enough to have a friend who "snuck" in the line early and got me one, but it was the same deal as this seems to be. All the scalpers were able to get them and all us collectors were left out to dry.

I really thought this was going to happen but I am confused, by the end of CV there will only be about 450 sold out of 1500 if they are only selling 150 per day. So, guessing we can pick up some $85 ones later on if need be, right? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif



Who said they were only selling 150 per day? I don't think that's right... it appears that they are selling 1 per person all day long. I thought it was 500 per day. (BTW... these 12" figures are incredible!!)



In Rod's post, he states that Jewel, a GG employee says only 150 per day will be sold. May I ask what 1 per person, per day means?

What? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif Where did I say this? I went back and tried reading through my older posts and didn't see where I said Jewel said that to me. Please don't misquote me.....I don't need to be in any more hot water.

I have talked to folks during the show and I did hear that it was 150 per day but also said that those numbers didn't match up for me,,,,I really don't recall saying anywhere that Jewel said that. If I did say that here, then let me make it clear, Jewel never said that to me, I just heard somebody in line throw that number out, It is not an official number of anything like that.

Nice job, Blight!

It's sad that you had to jump through hoops (and exit doors) to get one. Sadly, the only ones in that early are the dealers, so likely they're the ones getting them. I'm sure GG is getting an ear full on this...and deservingly so

They were selling limited amounts to exhibitors today. Trooper sold out quickly but they had for sale:
Darth Talon
McQuarrie Vader
12" Vintage Stormtrooper
12" Vintage Boba Fett
Bossk maquette

I asked one of the GG folks (Jewell I think it was) and she said that what they had on the sale sheets was all they brought to the show to sell. I was hoping for some older exclusives like Salacious Crumb.

I had an amazing time at CV! I didn't have to wait in line for Boba Fett considering I have him on pre-order from GG anyway which saved a lot of time! I got everything I wanted and saw the Robot Chicken Panel which was great!

One thing was funny was dealers selling the Vintage Stormtrooper for $150-170 when it's avaiable online for $94 shipped!

On one more sidenote some slave leias should not be slave leia!

Dealers try to capitalize on the people at the show that want items at that moment and impulse buyers. the smart buyer waits awhile when the market is saturated with them to buy them up.

I opened and resealed a Boba today after getting home from CV. Very nice! One thing I noticed...

Some of them have a matte finish on the green chest armor while others are more of a glossy finish. Either way very cool!

It's a bit tricky resealing the cardbacks with the plastic folds but they look the same once you've lifted the tape.

For most folks this was almost impossible to get unless you REALLY wanted it.

day 1 it was sold out before I even got into the con.
Day 2 the line was so long by the time I got in there, there was no chance.
The last two days I didnt even bother trying.

So my only hope now for these con exclusives is that they repackage them on Star Wars cards.

So funny you said that. I did exactly the same.
On Saturday or Sunday (I had so much fun, my days are blurry now), I met a fellow fan who got one. He told me he and his friend were the first and second on the general entrance line and were 2 of the only 5 of the line who got one. All the other ones (they were selling 150 per day) for that day went to VIPs, who could go inside earlier

Via PGM I have both Stormie and Boba pre-ordered, just waiting to see them at the house. Because of that I didn't need to go into the GG booth (although I did stop in to say hi to Jewell and pick up a free bust up for my son). I didn't grab any extra with my exhibitor badge, although in hindsight I guess I could have.

I'm not a PG member, but I thought they were already able to order the Fett? Or was that a temporary pre-order that was taken down before the con?

I guess the general public's got a shot at it since if they only sold 150 per day at the con, that leaves 900 for the site, minus however many the PG members pre-ordered. And if PG members already had a shot at ordering it, there may not be many more of them left who decide to order it this week.

Just popped on there and found Fett and Stormtrooper both available. I was considering waiting for Stormy on the SW card too, but who knows if this line will be successful enough for it to ever come out or if they'll just decide to stick to producing all-new figures. So I decided just to snag him now. He'll probably turn yellow by the time the SW card version comes out and it'll be time to replace him anyway. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif Boba Fett was a must though, since that was pretty much my favorite figure as a kid, with some tough competition from Gamorrean Guard and Luke Jedi.

Ya I won't be collecting the whole line but Boba was a must. I just sold my vintage collection of like 70+ figures I had packed away in a closet and couldn't believe I didn't have either of my two Boba's from back then.

Boba, Jedi Luke and Vader were my favs and would be tough to pass on in this line.

I'd really like one in decent shape but every where i see them on eBay they are either a) graded and a fortune b) ungraded and in rough shape or c) overpriced in comparison to other vintage carded figs.

Fetts seem to command a premium even though they are no rarer (minus Droids) than other carded figs. =/

But on topic. Thanks to everyone for the heads up and news from GG when these were coming, etc. I appreciate it as this is much better than paying $150+ on the Bay.
