I just got my Stormtrooper delivered by UPS. Oh man this thing is so big & beautiful. Even my wife was impressed, which is saying something. My box was not smashed at all & he arrived in perfect condition. It's way bigger than I pictured in my mind. Now I'm just waiting for my Fett shipping notice.

I can't believe that the Stormtrooper is STILL in stock. I know Boba Fett is hugely popular, but who doesn't love Stormtroopers?

Well, he is supposedly limited to 1500 like Fett.

My Stormtrooper just arrived and he is SO freakin' cool! IMO, this is by far the best Star Wars toy line since the original Kenner line, and easily my favorite line of the year. I want them ALL!

Mine was packed really well too, so maybe GG have gotten the hint. I hope my Fett is packed as well, he is due tomorrow. Mine came straight out of the package though. As incredibly cool as the packaging is, it would be crazy hard for me to display a bunch of them. Going to be a big enough pain to store, lol.

One slight issue with mine, is there is a bit of glue residue on his left hand. Nothing bad enough to make me want to return him though.

Can't wait for more of these to come out! GG for the win!

I love mine.He will be in is plastic prison.I have no plans to remove him for the packagind same with the Fett Man.

Certainly nothing wrong with that. They look so amazing on the card, I don't blame ya. I am glad that the packaging is collector friendly, in case I change my mind. Also toying with the idea of displaying at least one or two carded once more have been released.

Hey, i thought they could be removed from the packages and put back in as it was plastic?

Then can, that is why I said "I am glad that the packaging is collector friendly, in case I change my mind." You just have to remove a few pieces of tape.

My Stormie arrive the other day. GG did a good job with packing the figure using cardboard inserts to hold it in place. Now I can display it next to the Fett. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

For those in europe how much was shipping from Gentle Giant? (trying to gauge how much it would be to UK).Also, is it worth joining the club to get first shot at these things?

I thought shipping was $27 - could be wrong though. What ones are you after Mark?

WOW... that is just sillyness IMO. I have em all to date... just not him. Doubt I will pick this up as I wont pay more than $100 for it. Id rather have him on a SW card rather than an ESB, looks off next to all the SW cards

That's pretty tardcore.

I passed on the ESB Stormtrooper because I want him on a SW 12 back card and I want them to correct the brow paint.

I watched this auction and wondered what the heck was going on. Looks legit to me as there were several bidders involved.

Not sure what to make of it. Got mine for $100 like others.

Do we know if GG is actually planning on releasing Stormtrooper on a SW logo backercard?

The horribly incorrect brow paint paint and flat vinyl finish really hold this one back, IMO

Sergiu
05-17-2012, 09:14 AM
Unfortunately is not worth repainting the brow. As for the dull finish I used a bit of Novus (I used on my 1:1 Stormie armor too) and gave it a bit of shine.
