Wow, I had not heard of most wanted collectibles before, great prices on many of the line of items I purchase! Thanks for the heads up.

I do purchase from Razors Edge but think I'm going to be changing. Example: 12" IG-88...$70 from RE and $64 from MWC. And RE seems to charge about the same as GG for shipping. So if the shipping is the same, six bucks is six bucks!

I have to say I'm really happy this line made it to the ESB figures. These are the ones I want the most. Dengar has a very special place in my heart, it was one figure I clearly remember buying as a kid from a shop called John Menzies here in the UK. Long before we had a Toys R Us this and Woolworths used to be the place to go for Star Wars figures. I had a choice of about 5 figures I hadn't got and I went with Dengar because of that cool back pack! What did he have in there? Oh, the adventures we had...

He won't be out anytime soon. The preorder was just listed last month I think.

Yeah, he's listed for the fourth quarter of 2013 so I'd guess it'll be at least 6 months until he actually gets released.

I think Dengar was the second ESB figure I ever got, after Hoth Han. Though I think the character and his brief appearance in the film is fairly lame now, for some reason, he just looked really cool back then. Looks cool now too. No spelling errors or enhanced details on this guy. Looks good along with the long rifle. Will open him later tonight.

Anyone got any good out of package figures of Dengar? How does he lineup height-wise, how's his grip on the rifle, and how's his balance? Dengar always had kinda small feet for that huge gun.

Here is a photo of Dengar next to his brethren... no problem standing firmly on both feet... cool long rifle... although his hands are not wide enough to hold his weapon... he is still a great addition to GG's line up... now just waiting for Zuckuss to round out the Bounty Hunter collection... :O)

Here is an old photo I dug up of the vintage Kenner 3 3/4" series against a similar Deathstar background i built a year ago for comparison purposes....

Great shots Kaneda01 - I was able to get his long rifle in his hands with some force, but it eneded up scratching the inside of his hands a little.

Here's a tip: Try using a hair dryer to soften the vinyl. It makes it much easier to insert the weapon. It doesn't take much heat to soften, but be careful not to over heat. I've done it with much success.

I used the hair dryer trick for Dengar and Zuckuss. Like he mentioned in the previous post, be very careful. It doesn't take much time to soften up.

Apparently he is now sold out...although the site says add to cart...must have just gone...Hoth Han as well is gone!

Is it common for these guys to sell out on preorder status? I just joined the club to get 2-1B and was going to use the $30 coupon on Dengar, but it seems I've missed my chance.

It used to take longer for the figures to sell out. I'm guessing they're cutting the total number that they make close to the number of pre-orders they get.

I could be wrong but i think you can only use your 30 buck voucher on in stock items only.
