No kidding. As much as I would like to get these statues, it isn't going to happen.

The fourth series of Attakus Star Wars Statues will only be released somewhere near the end of 2005 but more probably in 2006. 2005 is the Star Wars Attakus Metal year.

Here are in the meantime some pics with the "pose" of the future statues so you have an idea of what they will look like :

Wow, check out those outlines....amazing work http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif Can't wait to see Grievous or any of the new Attakus statues.

Those poses look great, especially Luke and Oola. Probe droid looks good, but I can't imagine buying a statue of it especially considering the cost. I would love to see what the Grievous looks like. Normally, outlines wouldn't be much to talk about, but with Attakus it's different.

I have never seen one of these in person, but I may want to buy the Jedi Luke. What is the cheapest place to buy one of these online? How much do you think they will cost? And when do you guys think we'll see the actual photos?

Great character selection!

The silhouettes seem very promising. Love the Bib and Oola poses. Two Twi'leks in one release! Love it!

Can't wait to see the Tusken Raider as well. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Photographs cannot do these statues justice. I did some comparison shopping and found that eBay was cheapest by $10.00 w/free shipping. Because of concerns about getting something that expensive from eBay, I continued shopping and found that SWshop.com and EntertainmentEarth.com were the same price, but SWshop.com had much cheaper shipping. I'm guessing that Jedi Luke will start around $350.00, but could go higher. If you can afford it, it's worth it.

I would say these will run anywhere from $200 for the Wicket up to $450-500 for the Grevious. Luke would probably be in the $350-400 range. I love the Attakus line---they are great pieces. I will say that there is no real "CHEAP" place to get these. When ordering these statues, it is more about finding reliable sources as opposed to cheap sources, especially when trying to acquire "IN DEMAND" pieces. I would pay the couple of extra $$ for a piece from a place that is reliable as opposed to a place that is cheaper!!!! Admittedly---I have opted for ebay at a cheaper price in the US for most of my pieces and have had good luck. Unfortunately---my Vader 2 is on order from crazystarwars.com---and they suck *****!!! I still don't have my piece, after being charged in July for it. I have gotten the runaround saying statues are broken, etc., and that they are waiting for more to arrive. Stay away from them. I will say that Kamikazcomics.com is probably the #1 site in North America (CANADA) to buy from---BUT very reliable, but a few bucks more for the statue and shipping. Star Wars shop will be at pure retail, but will be very reliable with recourse if a piece arrives broken. Brian's Toys, as expensive as they are, generally releases these at retail price, and is pseudo reliable---even though they generally have a bad rap at pricing on other items (which I cannot argue with how overpriced they are typically).
If it is a Luke Jedi you are looking for, I would not worry too much as it seems human pieces tend to never sell out and can be attained for a very reasonable price (Ebay will be the cheapest for these, but reliability will be out the window!!!).

I don't collect Attakus, but I'm sorta interested in the Sandtrooper, Gamorrean Guard, Bib Fortuna, Tusken Raider, Tie Fighter Pilot, Probe Droid, and Oola. Not that I'll be buying all of those - too damn expensive! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif I'd rather just wait for cheaper versions from Gentle Giant (statues or busts).

Not too sure about the TIE pilot pose...kinda plain and boring, it looks like. The Oola should be awesome though as well as the Tusken and Probe Droid. I passed on the Attakus Vader II though, so I'll probably pass on most or all of these as well. I don't always like Attakus' sculpts and the difference in quality vs. a company like Gentle Giant doesn't justify the increased cost, to me.

If GG's statues have the same quality as the busts they will be giving Attakus a run for their money. I just ordered the GG Chewy statue, to me the detail and pose look better than the Attakus Chewy. Plus compare $165 to $450 and I know what piece I will be getting.
