The Biker Scout needs a lot of work - It looks terrible! The bike itself looks pretty good, though.



I agree. That scout looks way to stiff to be flying through the trees at 100 mph.

VERY NICE....AND MUCH BIGGER THAN THE LAME GG VERSION



Lame???

The Speeder Bike statue is one of my favorite pieces in my collection..... the diorama line from GG keeps only improves with each release. This Scout Trooper looks way too stiff in these pics.

And I am sure a much bigger Price Tag as well.

It's nice but, Too big and WAY too expensive for me. I'll bet it goes for $600+. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif I'd rather get the lame GG version. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

This isn't actually being released. Since GG released a Biker Scout, Attakus was not granted the right to release theirs.

That's a shame too because I like this a whole lot better.

Probably very cool in person, but way too expensive. I think their Grievous is way overpriced, so I can only imagine with this guy. I think I will stick with my GG Scout.

Is this guy making this thing in his apartment?

Is that confirmed? Attakus works outside the US. I think the rights work a bit different if one company based in the US produces a product and one outside the US wants to produce a similar product.

If that was the case, would it not apply that GG would not be able to make any statues of characters that Attakus has already made?

Hmmm...
It is true that Attakus could not release this item because of GG's statue...however, nothing is definitive. I'm sure Attakus will have the opportunity to release this for the next series perhaps.

This statue was done by a good french sculptor, but it is not an Attakus prototype of any kind. Since Attakus will not release any more SW statues for at least another two years after they release all of Series 4, the biker scout may still surface sometime after that. One thing that is certain about Lucas is that nothing is definite. We've seen Sideshow release a statue of Solo in the same outfit as Attakus's version. Anything is possible.

I didn't like the GG one only because it was so small. The size of this is tempting but doesn't the scout look to be a bit to big? He seems to be out of proportion with the bike.

He does look a little stiff, but not bad for a homemade statue, not bad at all. If I had tried to do this, it would probably look like a drunk got a hold of some playdoh. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

For a homemade statue it's excellent and is better than any attempt I could ever make. I made that comment earlier as I thought that this was an upcoming Attakus statue. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif

I was going to say. It looks like this thing was either done by a private individual or is now in the hands of a private collector, judging by the background.

very nice it will look great once finished and it will go well with GG one...

cost being a factor so I'm not sure it will be part of the collection.

It's not an Attauks statue, it's a custom. Link (http://www.statueforum.com/showthread.php?t=21348&page=1&pp=10)

Took the words out of my mouth, this is not from Attakus but a work in progress of another artist. Check that is not in the "Work in progress" forum.

I can see where you came across this conclusion, but you must remember that Lucas approves/disapproves all of the liscencing, no matter where you are in the universe. If Lucas says no, there is a possibility that this will still be made, but it will not be oficially liscensed and Attakus could get sued.
