Hey everyone-

I have been collecting for sometime now, but I never purchased any Attakus because of the price. Well I am starting to cave in and go after this stuff. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

My question to all of you, my Fellow Scummers, is where is the best place to find this stuff other than eBay? Is finding a good deal on this stuff impossible, or am I just looking in the wrong places? Do I really need to pay 800-900 bucks for a Royal Guard? Do I really have to spend 300-400 for a Slave Leia?

Any help, advice, or just pointing me in the right direction would be much appreciated! Thanks Guys & Gals!

i love attakus statues. in my opinion they are the finest star wars collectibles availible. as far as where's the best place to buy them i cant recommend RAZORSEDGECOLLECTIBLES enough. he is the best seller out there. he has most all attakus in stock for great prices. ive even talked to him on the phone and he said he can get any attakus made. great customer service and fast shipping.

look at my pictures of my collection. i have many attakus statues displayed in my star wars room.

DarthPotts1975, I really like how you have your stuff displayed. Looks great. I do agree with you that the Attakus statues are the best quality out there. They are the most expensive too but their quality in person is really outstanding .

so many people say attakus is way overpriced. most of the people that say that either dont have any or have never seen one in person. even pictures dont do them justice. the quality is amazing. i also like that they are very limited(only 1500) of every statue is made. unlike the mass produced GG vader statue. its all good though http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

thanks for the nice comments on my pictures.

Overpriced is relative usually. I'd say Attakus can be overpriced just because I don't want to spend that kind of money...not that I can't, but don't like to. Regardless of if the item is worth it or not. Like the Master Replicas AT-AT...that is overpriced...but relatively speaking because I just don't want to put that much into 1 piece. Some do and love it and say it's worth it. Maybe if I was a millionaire it'd seem more reasonable. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Attakus is well worth the price. A lot of these have come down in price recently with the release of the Japanese editions. Makes you wonder how many countries Attakus will make these for, but I digress. You can't beat the quality of these. I don't think they can be compared to the Gentle Giant Statues and I own some of those also. I would constantly search ebay and buy from reputable sellers. This is how I got most of mine. Including Boba Fett for only 225 dollars with a buy it now.

Your collection is unbelievable! I really like it. I have pretty much everything MR, but only a couple statues and busts to complement them.

One thing is for sure, it's not just what you have, but how you set it up. You have really good taste with how you did everything. I can't believe how huge the Attakus Jabba is! He is almost as big as your little girl! That's crazy!

I was wondering, where did you latch onto that print of Jabba's throne room with Lando in the front and the Jawas pleaing with Jabba? I really like that.

Thanks for all the great pointers guys, and for all the PM's concerning my questions. I really greatly appreciate everyone's willingness to help out another Scummer. That is what makes Rebelscum.com such an awesome site! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

i think 800/900$ for a royal guard is a little bit expensive...
Here in France when i see a royal guard to sell the price is around 500 euros about.
You should wait for the next series statue, wicket and tusken are really amazing as grievous (but i hate the character)

I did not think much of Grievous either, but he is very cool looking. I also like him because he is the prelude to Darth Vader.

As far as the Royal Guard, there is no way I would go after any other figure over him. I have always loved these guys. But I will eventually go for the Tusken and Wicket.

oldschool_Jawa, tell Jabba I will be there, I'll be just a little delayed. And don't send any Bounty Hunters looking for me... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif
