I'd been wavering on these for months but I finally took the leap on 3PO and R2 a few weeks ago. They're spectacular! They're expensive but they're very detailed and weighty. I never see any discussion here about them so I felt I'd bring it up to give this line some love.

Also, if anyone else owns the R2, mine is different from all the pictures on the net. He's reared back in the stance more than we're used to seeing and the middle leg is off center a bit. All pretty minor but I'm wondering if this was just a fluke or if they're all like that.

I got the diorama ( nr. 48 ) and all available characters so far ... still worrying if Attakus will deliver all characters needed for this scene ... Luke, Han, Leia, Chewbacca still missing ...

Has anyone who has the Falcon Diorama received the Luke Stormtrooper and Mouse Droid figures? I've not received either yet.

I think these figs are too small for the price.

They are pricey but you have to hold one in your hands to appreciate it. First, they weith a ton but they are extremely well detailed. The 3PO and R2 will astound you with all the little details they put in. Also, they're hand painted--beautifully, I might add--so it's easy to see where the price is coming from. Still, can't fault anyone for complaining about the price on these. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif It was the lone reason I wavered for so long but now that I have a couple, these are very nice.

Nope - I called a representative of Attakus some weeks ago and they told me they are not out by now and to expect them in august ...

Funny how that MR Studio Falcon kinda drowns out all that other background noise, huh? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

How much bigger if at all is the MR Falcon compared to the SS Falcon?

I would LOVE to see some collection pics of the Falcon diorama.

The MR Falcon is supposed to be something like 32" long. Here's a a recent thread (http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=UBB27&Number=1954372&Forum=,f27,&Words=falcon&Searchpage=0&Limit=25&Main=1954372&Search=true&where=bodysub&Name=&daterange=0&newerval=&newertype=&olderval=&oldertype=&bodyprev=#Post1954372) discussing it. Here's another thread with some cool pics (http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=1717536&page=&view=&sb=5&o=&fpart=1&vc=1). Which Falcon are you talking about, though? Are you talking about the Code 3 Falcon?

Me too! That's why I keep visiting this thread. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Anyone with pics to share?

I was talking about the Sideshow Falcon, even though it is only half of the Falcon. I can't seem to find a website that has the dimesions.

You mean the Attakus Falcon (diorama), right? The subject of this thread.

I think this (http://www.starwars.com/collecting/news/misc/news20060303.html) might be what you're looking for. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Yupp, that is what I was talking about, I would like a SideShow falcon too for the 12" figures http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif. So what was the retail price? $2000? I didn't know about the dagobah diorama coming out.

Does anybody know if the Attakus Falcon is coming to America? The Attakus USA site still has a "coming soon" link for the Metal collection but the thing has been available in other parts of the world. Not that I could afford it or have the space for it but... it's nice to know it'll be available if I decide to auction off my sanity or something.

The product has been available to europe only yet as far as I know and thats because Attakus is a company from France. I asume that shipping these items other than ground would make them impossibly expensive and thats why you have to wait that long time in the US/Canada.

The diorama is selling for 2400 Euros on the Attakus Europe site which converts to $3,077.04.
