Nobody I know of has it available yet. There is a site out of Canada....kamikazcomics.com---they are very reliable, however, they will charge you MSRP upon initial release, and no less. They do have pre-orders, and I wouldn't be surprised if they have them up soon. In my experience with Attakus (been rooked once on a potential good deal from another online dealer), you are better off paying paying a little more $$ from a reputable source than taking a chance on a deal with Ebay or another online dealer. These statues breed con-artists.

Comic Statues Has them (http://www.comicstatues.com/star_wars_atk_grievous.html)

I've heard good things about them, but I can't tell if they charge you for the item immediately or not.

I agree. I think the SS looks better as their Grievous is wielding all 4 lightsabers.

Both are really good looking!!

we havent even seen the final attakus yet so i cannot really say.

Personally i disagree. Long term investment may goto attakus because of the material sideshow use. Thats if we look at it from an investment point of view. But each to their own.

what would a good price be for the attakus?

08-30-2005, 04:00 PM
Well, i've seen the non sideshow attakus on presale for $375. Retail was $450 so I'd say that's a pretty good price. The exclusive on this sucker is bound to hit $500 immediately, and probably will plateu around $660-$700 or so. This piece is simply amazing. A-MAY-ZING. If you can find an exclusive (with cloak), for retail price, get it. If you want to resell it in the future, you'll make a nice profit. When people see these, they are going to be awestruck.

For the ATTAKUS, I'm not buying future value on these. They make some great pieces, but other than the original wave Vader, Royal Guard, Stormtrooper, and Fett, the others haven't done much in secondary market value. Which is really odd, because these pieces are huge, and they are simply awesome. So, I think you'll eventually be able to find Grievous for below retail on ebay, and I think retail for Grievous will be around $499.

I'd go with the sideshow.

about the sideshow statues,the value was raised before (from $450-600+)but also drop on ebay now,just check the vader,it's about $350-400+ ,so,for the long terms investment,i think attakus is the better choice to collect,of course,the first wave of attakus statues are all in high values(except luke,and leia).most of the first and wave attakus statues were released in 2001-2002,the prices are also not too high until the 2 nd vader.,jango,clonetrooper come out.so,i will keep an eye on the attakus statues.when the new series come out on next year(Grievous,luke jedi,sandtrooper,tie fighter...etc),the prices will be different... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif

If you can afford it, get both...keep the one you like the best and sell the other one. Or keep both. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif
