WOW, has it really been a year already since I ordered him. I hope the wait was worth it. I have been dying to see this darn thing in person. I hope the cape is worth paying retail for it http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Here's one... I had the caped version pre-ordered, but I cancelled a couple months ago just knowing that I didn't really have the money for it and definitely didn't have the room to display it... As tempting as the SSC stuff is, I just can't keep up with it all.

You guys dont even know how many times I went to cancel this. I must have opened up the order info page at least a dozen times, one time going so far as to "cancel order" and wouldnt you know it, it asked me if "I was sure", I WASNT!

I put it off and put it off. Fact of the matter is I wont appreciate it as much as someone else. I have no room to display it. Spending $100 on a statue with the hopes that "one day, I'll get my own house..." isnt an acceptable rationalization this time. Five-hundred is a lot of money.

Anyway I hope one of you snag it...

Fantastic!!! I'm stoked about getting this figure. Ever since I saw it at SDCC I've been hoping everything would hold together to let me get it. It has and now I can add this awesome piece to my collection.

Sadly, I had to do the same. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif I'd really, really love to get the Maul bust but unfortunately it's just no do-able for me right now. Hopefully, I can pick this one up sometime later at a reasonable price.

Congrats to all who are getting the SS Grievous!! I can't wait to see some pictures of it!!

Hmmm...that does look like a problem. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

I'd hate for you to regret cancelling this when the time comes when you do have the space for it. I have quite a few things still boxed up that I haven't gotten around to opening up yet because of space issues and time. I need to rearrange a few things and put up some more shelves before I can display them though. So you see, we all have some expensive boxes laying around our house!

That's quite a dilemma you've got there.

I cancelled my SS Grievous mostly because space issues, I am getting the one from Attakus wich should fit perfectly with my other Attakus statues.
It was really painful to cancel it after all this long wait but both GG are shipping at the same time and I didn't want to spend $1K in two statues and have to deal with space issues or not being able to display one of them anywhere.
This weekend I got the two display cases for my SS DV and Obi and those are really big, so I can't imagine how big (and expensive) will need to be a display case for Grievous. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

Yeah, if I were getting one I would have to go with the exclusive as well. The cape really makes this piece.

The Attakus Grievous is awesome. The sculpting on the cape is just outstanding. I'm sure you'll be happy with this release.
I guess you really can't go wrong with either one of these pieces!

That is so true, that was what made it easier for me to cancel the one from SS, I know is going to be awesome but that mofo is huuuge and I don't think I am going to need more than 1 statue of him anyway http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Now Maul or Boba are another thing!

Thanks! I think this piece is so fantastic that I have to get it. The cape really adds to it too, which is why I went on the wait list instead of buying the regular version off of eBay or somewhere else.

My wait list order for the exclusive Grievous just got converted into a real order! Man, I had kept the faith in the wait list and it rewarded me. I am really excited to be getting this piece. I still need to go back and pick up the Vader and Obi Wan as well. I am on the fence about the Luke and Han though.

I just canceled my SS exclusive order. As much as I was looking forward to this item, I cannot justify the cost at this time (not to mention the lack of space in my house to display this beast). Maybe sometime down the road I'll be able to get the exclusive through the secondary market...even if it ends up costing me more. Hopefully a fellow scummer who's on the waiting list for this item will get mine. Good luck!

Put me on the list for a cancellation. Hopefully someone here who wants one gets it.
I find myself beginning to be not that interested in the prequel items. The OT has strong connection with me since it reminds me of my childhood and I, quite honestly, don't care for much of the prequel movies. I think my collection is going to go through some major revamping here in the next year.

I received my 20-25 day notice 23 days ago, and have not received a 5-7 day notice telling me that they are about to pre-charge the card. I hope that that e-mail just got skipped, but I checked and they haven't done the pre-authorization yet. It looks like it will be another week or more before he starts to ship.
