That is one nice statue, but $279 for an 8" display piece. It's not made of gold is it? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

No, but Attakus will still charge an arm and a leg as if it were made of gold.

That being said it is a cool little statue. Just not worth $300.

Even GG and Koto charged less for their smaller Yoda statues. Attakus should get a clue on this one.

What am I saying? I'm sure they'll sell out regardless. It's a SW piece after all.

This is an absolutely awesome statue but not worth the price tag their asking because its so small. It should be like $185.

And you thought Wicket is expensive, wait until that Falcon/Death Star diorama goes on sale!

That is a nice piece. I am going to wait for some of the other reputable dealers to put it on pre-order first, just to see if the price goes any lower elsewhere.

guys I'm not into statues that much and am not really up to speed, why are these attakus statues so much higher in price then say the GG ones?

thanks in advance-SC

Well my guess is simple - globalisation is one thing why GG is cheaper - I am sure they are 100% designed and produced in China.

Whereas the Attakus statues prototypes are done in France ( french people need more money to pay their bills than chinese in common ).

Another thing ... I personally think Attakus just does much better statues than GG. Maybe not much better molds than Kotobukiya but other material and they are limited and got a high second market value.

That said ... the Ewok isn't worth that much anyways but with all good products ... Lucasfilm is taking a big piece of the cake for sure and a even bigger for each successfull series of statues.

Wonder what the full size statues like Gamorrean Guard or Sandtrooper will cost if the little Ewok is that high already ...

My thoughts...

not much of an Ewok fan..I'll pass, but it is pretty cool...not $300 cool, but cool... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Is Wicket part of Wave 4?

Where is the Imperial Probe Droid???

09-17-2005, 09:07 AM
I'll buy it but I won't pay $300.

09-17-2005, 11:08 AM
nice piece - would may be pay $100 - not $279.

Yeah me too. I'm still not convinced(or too cheap, if you will) to pay $400+ for their other statues. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
