Those pics are nice. I am sure the SS Grievous PF will be just as nice and is just as expensive $$$. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

If it has the cape that is currently true. It will be interesting to see
how prices for the two Grievous statues move over the next few months.

Guys if you're paying $580 for this statue it's truly a big deal for you. you will pay the same price than us in FRANCE for it.
It's an amzing piece will have mine soon ( but cannot open it until november for my birthday http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif )

I gotta hand it to ya killer. That is one awesome looking collection! My sideshow grievous arrives today. Man do I wish I could afford both. I love the attakus version, but there's something about the general wielding 4 sabers that is just so cool. I can't tell from the photos I've seen of the SS version, but the attakus looks like they nailed the internal organs.

But those MR helmets on top piqued my curiousity - you are not sending

I am sending back my SpecOps (although the one I have is flawless), I'm just waiting for MR to get their fingers out and send me the return shipping label.

The empty stand is for my second Star Corps bucket (which was cracked, so was sent back).


Thanks for all the kind words guys.

Why do you have to send back your Spec Ops helmet? Did I miss a recall or something? Just curious.

Killer_Klown
05-30-2006, 07:23 PM
Because they're knackered. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

MR sent an email out saying that the quality of them were not as they had hoped and if you wanted to, you could send your helmet back for a brand new one (which is going to be manufactured elsewhere).

Those of you who bought the attakus grievous instead of the sideshow probably did the right thing. The sideshow version seems to be comparatively flimsy and many of us are now sending it back due to breakage during shipping. The attakus seems very well built. Head over to the sideshow grievous thread in this forum to read many tales of woe.

You mean to tell me that, you think those Attakus organs are movie accurate?

I don't think niether Attakus or SS got that part right. Last night I watched ROTS and puased it when Obi opened GG chest. It looks to me like he just has a heart in a bubble of green goo. Both statues have good interpretations but, I don't think they are exactly like the ones in the movie.

To be honest, I don't know how Grievous organs looked like in the movie, but I surely appreciate all the details Attakus put into them in this statue (thanks to Agent zero for this collage).

Yeah, you're right. I watched ROTS again last night, slowed that part down, and noticed the same thing. I have to second Orlando, and give kudos to Attakus for going the extra mile though. In the end, I think they both do a great job of producing the effect.
