Yoda looks amazing! I still really like the Darth Vader. I like the neutral pose. Attakus rocks at this stuff. Gentle Giant has their work cut out for them.

Thoughts?

Those rock!!! The problem is I am two for two on receiving broken statues with this newest release, both my Salacious Crumb and Jawa came broken!!!! Fortunately, the people I bought them from were very accomodating, however, when I emailed Attakus, I didn't get a dang response from several emails! Stupid French! images/icons/mad.gif I am a little leary to get more, but I do have the Yoda on pre-order, and if that arrives OK, I will definately get the Chewbacca! That piece looks awesome!!!

That Yoda looks great. I love the pose.

The Vader stance doesn't look quite right to me. I don't know what it is. I may end up getting it since he's holding his ROTJ saber and I need a figure for my ROTJ sabers.

I've pre-ordered the Chewie and the Obi-Wan from EE.

IMO, the Chewie sculpt is the best that's ever been done. Chewie has been the victim of crappy sculpts and ridiculous likenesses for far too long. About time somebody nailed it.

I love the Yoda statue. Vader looks good but I really don't care about the pose. And with Chewbacca, I have to agree with Durge, GG version is better.
By the way, does anyone know how much Yoda will be going for?

Ive got to agree with Durge as well, unless GG does a crap job painting Chewie, their's looks a lot better.

For some reason the GG Chewie looks off to me. The face looks weird around the mouth. Plus I like the Attakus because of the bowcaster as well.

<font size="2" face="arial">I pre-ordered mine at $249----but I am thinking of cancelling since I am sure come EBAY---it will be found cheaper, unless the demand for it is through the roof.

Agreed with BDW and Durge, the GG Chewie stat looks better, and the only way they can screw it up is with the paint. Still the Attakus Chewie looks really good, and I really like that Vader. I'm gonna hold off to see how GG stats come out, but if they disappoint then I'll just have to play catch up with the Attakus line. images/icons/smile.gif

Chewie's face looks female - dont' ask why, it just does (to me) for some reason.

I take it the Yoda isn't painted?

I really hope that that picture of Vader is taken in very strong light, cause that looks way too grey to me.

I'm warming up to the Vader. Still gonna wait and see what GG comes up with first, though.

The Chewie looks pretty realistic, but I like GG's version better (and I'm sure the price is going to be much better as well).

Don't care for the Yoda. I don't really like any AOTC Yoda where he's wielding a sabre (unlike most people, I thought that scene was boring). It seems very un-Yodalike to me. I could go for a nice ESB Yoda statue though. Maybe GG will do one of those, too....

Thanks for the pics, Durge.

Vader and Chewy look awesome. I'd rather get this Chewbacca statue than the GG one because he has his bowcaster and doesn't have 3PO on his back, but I'm not going to pay $450 for it. I've already got three statues on pre order (Megatron, Arcee, and Skeletor) and I'm getting all three for less than what the Chewbacca statue costs.
The Yoda statue looks really good, but the pose looks too much like the GG bust. If I didn't already own the bust I might have been more attracted to it.

Hmm, seems the concensus so far prefers the GG Chewie.

Perhaps I'm the high one here... images/icons/wink.gif

Both the Attakus & GG Chewie look fantastic, but with so many other items on my to buy list this year I think GG's Chewie is the one I'll go for purely on price.

I don't know what it is about the Vader Statue, the larger photo looks great but in the side view photo his pose just looks to stiff & wooden.

Chewie does look pretty good - hopefully the prices will be within reach.

The statues sure look nice. But the Attakus price point is just a little rich for my blood. If the GG statues are in a lower price range, I'll try to obtain them. I'd be happy with either Chewie. Both look to be fine sculpts.

If I didn't already own the bust I might have been more attracted to it. <font size="2" face="arial">I'm in the same boat as you, man. I have a couple of minibusts on preorder as well as a Skeletor statue and the Hard Hero Optimus Prime statue, so if GG's stuff looks even half as good as Attakus', I'll buy GG's for the price alone. Let's see, $100-150 or $450? What do I want to pay? Hrmmmm.

Although if GG doesn't do a Vader, or if I like Attakus' version more, I may break down and get the Vader...but surely not the Yoda or Chewbacca.

Anyone know how tall the Vader statue will be? What was the last one, 12"? 15"? I know Attakus stuff is high-quality, but my Hard Hero 12" Megatron statue is huge and absolutely gorgeous, and it only ran me $125.

Got my First Attakus statue in the mail today..Got Han Solo. MAN is it sweet!!!

It was expensive (paid $325 delivered) but I am loving it. I want the Chewbacca because I think they will go GREAT together in my media room...not sure I would go too crazy on these, but a few really nice ones will do me just fine!

My Obi-Wan Attakus came in today as well (311/1500). Very impressive imo. Looks much better in person than the online pics. Nice detailing on the lightsaber hilt and the robes. Overall I'm very happy with this purchase. A nice addition to my Obi-Wan focus.

Just curious, how do you know the vader is now available? I checked the attakus website and don't see anything about it. Of course I can't read 90% of whats written there.

Anybody have an idea on how much the Yoda statue is going to be and when it's going to be available?

Durge
05-29-2004, 10:25 PM
Entertainment Earth has a price of $399.99. I think that is insane, but some people must really like Attakus. I'll wait for a GG ESB Yoda.

Durge
05-29-2004, 10:38 PM
We've seen painted samples of both the Attakus and GG Chewbacca statues. Which do you like better?

http://bitmap.attakus.fr/CHW/chewie1.jpg or http://img26.photobucket.com/albums/v79/Durge/ftdygf.jpg


I stand by my original opinion that the GG Chewbacca is better. What do you guys think?

michael_mensinger
05-29-2004, 10:57 PM
Personally, I think the GG statue is nicer looking. That's not to say that the Attakus one isn't nice, just that I prefer the GG Chewbacca statue more.

Looking at the two chewys independently they both look good, but side-by-side Gentle Giants looks more like the real thing. The face is perfect.

Jrosen----I have seen this Yoda for as low as $249.99 (which is what I pre-ordered mine at), but like the vader, it is pre-sold out almost everywhere now. The $399.99 Entertainment Earth is asking for is pure price gouging based on the popularity of Yoda Attakus. It might be a little cheaper on Ebay upon release, but seeing how a Vader pre-order already went for like $800, it may not be a sure bet to find for less than $399.
I do have to admit, I love Attakus and have a few of their statues, but that GG Chewie is just awesome---a must have!

Star Wars Shop had the Yoda for awhile at $249 which was really a decent deal. I think, though, that they are presold out. There is one place that did have some for preorder at www.darkqueensandlords.com (http://www.darkqueensandlords.com), but you may have to email them because their site is currently under construction. I have bought from them on Ebay and had no problems. Not sure of their price but I know it was less than EE's.
I personally like the Attakus Chewie a bit better but mainly because of the size and because it would look awesome standing next to my Attakus Han. For me, the best thing about the Attakus statues are their overall size. When I see them in person they really dominate my collection and the detail is really great on most all of them. The GG looks great too, but these are supposed to be scaled on the 12" size and for me the bigger statues are worth the extra cash.

the odd thing i find is that yoda looks darn near exact of the koto kit, i mean dead on position, cape swept and everything, except the saber color on the attakus isnt right which im sure they will fix. i know the attakus are larger scale and made of heavy material etc. but if you want a cheaper version just get the koto kit and save $150+ and you also get a mace windu http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I like their first Yoda alot more than this one. The Kotobukiya version is actually better than Attakus new Yoda. I'm glad I passed on the pre-sell.
