Does his missile fire? or is it STILL considered a choking hazard?

Missile is removable. I would think it is a weapon of mass destruction.

I agree. That was my first thought, too shiny. That being said, it's still VERY cool :)

Way too much gloss on him! Looks like plastic.

PGM price Stormtrooper $2,070
PGM price Vader $2,340

They hit me with tax, but free shipping.

Just waiting for the pre-order on this one. We can be life-size Fett buddies Kevin!

Is there anyone who ordered the Stormtrooper and / or the Vader and could help with some questions about the process?

1. Can you give some information on the payment schedule? Do you pay when you order in full or part? Balance before shipping?
2. Has either of those first two shipped?
3. What seems to be the window between order and ship?

Thanks - trying to get a plan together for budgeting the Fett.

To my knowledge GG have never done payment plans like Sideshow do. With GG you pay when it ships, so if you pre-order there is no payment made. Not ordered either of the other statues so cant say exactly but with busts etc they email you with a processing notification so you know the money is gonna be taken and the item then ships within a day or two. Based on past experience even if you pre order immediately they go up, you have a while to save up for final payment.

Hi Kevin,

1. You pay when they ship... after PGM discount the total was $2070.00 with free shipping
2. Stormtrooper has not shipped... it is scheduled to ship this quarter
3. Looks like the lead time... at least for the Stormtrooper is about 10-11 months (orded the day it became available - Sept. 2014)
* Just of note... GG sent out an email that under new management they would charge tax when it shipped and to compensate early orders they would apply a 10% discount to cover the extra costs, etc.

I'm on the fence on ording Vader... would like to see a photo first prior to ordering... too bad they didn't have one on display at SDCC. I plan on following in your footsteps and adding Boba Fett to my home studio. Hope the info helps... :O)

They said the 10% discount was only on orders placed before they started charging tax. Any orders placed afterwards, like the Fett, will have no such discount.

Hey Kevin... just received my processing notification today... the Stormtrooper will process this Thursday, July 31st... and the total when down to $2016.70 after the 10% discount was applied. :O)

Hey if you got the funds and room. Go for it. I really would like to have just the blaster myself.

I'll have to say, these are pretty attractive -- more attractive to me than Sideshow's life-size statues due to the big difference in price, and the fact that they tie in with vintage SW collecting. But I have no room for them, and it's fairly unlikely that they'll make a Jabba. ;)

That blaster looks massive - is it heavy?

Nah, I haven't started assembly yet. Just wanted to unpack it to be sure it was all there and undamaged. The rifle's not heavy at all.

So I've been waiting to hear about my big Boba. I called Gentle Giant today to ask them. The guy told me that they tried to charge my card about two weeks ago, but it was expired. This makes me nuts. I did get a new card, and I was sure to update my credit card information on their site to avoid this sort of thing. The kicker is they never contacted me. If I hadn't called I wonder if I ever would have heard from them. I love their products, but their customer service needs some attention. Has anyone else had this sort of experience with GG?

About 21.5 inches.

Thanks Kevin. Pulling the tape measure out tonight to see how intrusive such a monument will be.
Anyone here purchasing the Vader? I'm still undecided.
Wonder if the monument R2 is likely to produced given the recent Luke Jedi announcement......??

You really want to use the stand. It's heavy. If you were able to balance him on his feet you should be very afraid.

Agreed. The stability of the statue comes primarily from the feet screwing into the base. Without that, it would topple.

I don't display my Boba holding his blaster for fear it will fall out. What experience have you had with it? I would hate to damage the blaster or base if it fell out of his hand.
