Great detail, it looks like a film prop, but a statue of the Probot is not something that really excites me as a collector.
I'd love to get my hands on one of the Attakus Vaders, but their so expensive, it might be a while.

That really does look great. Pity how expensive it'll be, given the size of that Droid. I can't even bring myself to fork out enough $$$ for an Attakus ewok http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

I hear you dude, but I like that Attakus is going after characters that no one else is going.
Their Jabba Palace set is going to be one of the most amazing displays ever (and huge!!)
And since I am after everything bad guys, bounty hunters, Sith, etc the coming figures like Grievous, Tie Pilot, Sandtrooper and the Prob droid will be great additions to my collection.

How much do think this is going to cost?

That looks awesome. Much better than the pictures shown on the official SW site the other day.

As for price, I'm guessing $300-400?

That is awesome. I will definitely grab one of these as long as they are not too expensive. I can't see this being really expensive because there is not as much material as a full body statue of a human.

Does anyone know how big it is supposed to be anyway?

I've heard that it's supposed to be huge, as Attakus make their pieces in proportion to one-another. I'll still buy it anyway, regardless of the price.

If you look at this picture, you can see its size relative to the already-released Attakus Chewbacca:

Looks rather large. I wouldn't count on this thing being less than $350. It's taller than Vader if you include the antennae.

Well Vader is 17.3" tall so yes its going to be big. When do you think it will be available for order. Something about this one is speaking to me.

Awesome pics, Orlando. Even discounting the antennae it's still nearly as tall as the first Vader. This sucker looks big and heavy.

Yeah!!! I am amaze about how those three legs can support this kind of weight. Physics are amazing!!!

Actually when I first heard about this statue, I was sure there would be some sort of peg in the middle supporting it. I guess maybe they made it so that all the weight is in the legs, and it's not very top-heavy.

If I were going to buy a Grievous statue, it would definitely be the Attakus version.

Any news on when this will be available for order?

TA2215
04-26-2006, 12:50 PM
Last thing I heard was that it was in the process of approval of LFL, then they need to send the molds to China and then the apinting process, so I am not expecting this before Oct-Nov this year the earliest. Besides, the next one (after GG) I believe will be the Tie Pilot (Series 4).

04-26-2006, 01:06 PM
Well that is good news. With the SideShow 1:1 Darth Maul bust comming in just a few weeks I am gonna' be broke. Later this year is perfect. Another question, do you have to be a member to order from Attacus like with Master Replica?

TA2215
04-26-2006, 03:12 PM
No, when everything is greenlighted by LFL preorders will be allowed and you can download a PDF from the Attakus America website and then you can fax the order to them but my suggestion is that you should get it from a retailer that way you might save some $$$. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Thanks TA2215, any suggested retailers? This would be my first Attakus purchase.

TA2215

That is a great way to start!!! I am sure this statue will be breath taking!!!! (size, detail, weight)

I buy my Attakus to Mike at www.razorsedgecollectibles.com (http://www.razorsedgecollectibles.com), he is really great with his prices, packaging and the communication is amazing!.
The Probe droid is not available yet for preorders but I am sure Mike will have it as soon as they release him.
He requires a little down payment but like I said that is nothing comparing to his top Cust. Service.


BTW, It was just confirmed that the legs of the droid are made of metal and that is how they can support the weight. Attakus statues are made of Cold Porcelain so they are always really heavy! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Looks great but extremely fragile http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

Knowing the legs are made of metal makes me feel a lot better about the sturdiness of this piece. Aside from the antennae there's not a whole lot of greebles you'd need to watch out for or anything like that. Now if this were a Star Destroyer or the Death Star...THAT would be a fragile piece. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Maybe this is already known to you Attakus experts - but is there going to be
a Death Star Gunner??? Seems like an odd choice even if he does sport a wicked helmet...

That's about par for Attakus stuff though, unfortunately. :/
