Here's a pic from Killer_Klown's collection:

In case you don't know how big the statues are individually, the Attakus Jawa is a hair's width shorter than the Koto Shocktrooper and is about the same height as the Gentle Giant Grievous Maquette.

i have it and love it. i got a good deal on mine. think i paid $220 for it on ebay. i would say it is worth $300. im a big attakus collector so i think there are all worth the high prices. it is also one of the larger attakus statues.

if you click below on my collection pics. you will see it displayed next to my other statues/collectibles.

I also bought it for a real good price....$200 shipped from a fellow Scum member.....my only Attakus piece and it is real nice but I don't think I could have brought myself to spending $300 for it.

Here is a pic next to the 14" Gentle Giant Darth Vader statue...

It is big and heavy....a real neat piece.

Ikea, and it's called a Detolf. Most GG, Prop, 12" or other statue collectors love it, as it's cheap (around 60 or 70 bucks) and it's glass. I myself have 2.

About the Attakus clone, the helmet sculpt sucks. If you're an inexperienced at nitpicking with clones, then this is for you. Otherwise, the GG is the best so far for Ep.2. Koto's upside down V frown is inaccurate, and the overall helmet is wrong. The other parts of the statue look neat though.

These are not Detolf but the Detolf are the closest thing you will find. And they really are nice, I just wish they could be configure with different heights for the shelves.

I quite like it. I think you can usually find it for between $250 and $300.
Here's a so-so picture of mine.

I must say that I love Attakus statues, the detail is amazing even if their human faces are not the best but I have been really dubious about getting the Clone Trooper, there is something about the pose and some imperfections in the helmet that make him be really low in my priority list.
I will probably get it in the future, but not with a $300 price tag, I wouldn't pay more than $200 for it.

What do you mean?, they are completely closed. They come with four glass panels (one is the door) and three glass shelves.
The only problem is that their shelves are fixed, you can't play with their heigth. GG Statues fit in there nicely with the exception of the Dewback which base is too big.

yea, thats why i corrected myself. at first glance on the ikea site it just looked like glass shelves with the frame, then i looked at it some more.

i think i want something a bit wider though, because i'll have to have 4 of those side by side, i'd rather have 2 wider ones.

That is one of the reasons why I liked better the ones in the pic above. I will like to know who mades them and how flexible are for configure the shelves at different heights.
