Can't wait to see the pictures. I actually decided to cancel mine directly from Sideshow and found one from a retailer - came to around $100 cheaper. After looking at all these previews of items coming out I am going to need the extra money http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif Going to be a very expensive year!!

I tried to resist for the longest time but I was just too weak. Got him a few days ago.

Please resize your image size to a width of 600 pixels or smaller, thank you.

This is what I was going to get if I found the $500 gift card. Unfortunately, my card was only good for $10.

I received mine yesterday - it was an X-mas present from my wife, and one of his "quills" on the back of his head was snapped off, so I have to send it back for a replacement.

That's a bummer! Hope you can get a replacement soon.

Did you get Greedo from SSC? I know they have a 30 day refund policy.

He is a spectacular bust as I just recently bought one myself as I wasn't sure any 1:1 Bust could top Darth Maul but Greedo comes really, really close.

Good Luck!

Yes, he was ordered directly from SSC. They were supposed to send my wife a FedEx return label via email on Firday, but so far nothing has shown up. They will then issue a replacement when they receive the package back.

I read somewhere that SSC had some problems with the quills snapping off due to Greedo moving around during the shipping process especially on the lower portion of his neck but the good thing about SSC is they stand by their products.

I am really close to taking the plunge on this one. I am actually kinda surprised that they have lasted this long considering the size of only 300.
For all those that have this piece, what are your thoughts on it?? If you had it to do again would you put down the $600?

I bought Greedo in December and have zero regrets about buying him.

I bought Maul right away but the pictures of Greedo were just ok to me but when I finally saw him in person at a local collectible shop, I was blown away and bought him immediately.

Its a great sculpture. I don't regret buying it but lately it seems a little out of place with the rest of my collection.

Mister_Gosh
02-19-2007, 01:07 PM
I would totally buy him again.

I've a soft spot for Greedo to begin with, and it delights me that they'd go to a secondary character so early in this line, though obviously it didn't help it sell out.

DARTHBORAT

Greedo is the lowest # I have for any bust or statue as it's #69.

I am shocked that SSC still has Greedo up for order as 300 is a low #.

Would love to see this one in person. Can you see your reflection in his eyes?

I wanted this for a long time, but cancelled my pre-order from SS. I was hoping to get it cheaper off ebay because he isn't the most popular character, but the price hasn't come down all that much. I still keep my eyes open for one.

The eyes have a fascinating irridescent paint that is not quite reflective, but not entirely opaque either. It gives a depth to the eyes that's quite remarkable in person (but photographs poorly, because the flash completely destroys the effect). They don't have enough of a shine to them to really see a reflection though.

Darn you - I'm really quite tempted now!

Greedo actually looks better in person. I have many non-Star Wars friends and when they come over to my place, they all love the Greedo Bust.

Maul is my favorite of the two, but the Greedo bust is absolutely spectacular.

Just took the plunge and ordered the Greedo on the flexpay plan. I am really surprised that this has lasted this long since it is limited to 300 (one of the smallest runs of a SW item from SS). I think that once these sell out the price is really going to elevate.

DarthPotts1975

you be very happy with it. i think it even looks better than the maul bust.

Congrats AlaskanStar on purchasing Greedo, as I am sure you will love it. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

I am shocked that Greedo lasted this long, as I figured with such a low production run , he would have sold out by now. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

I think the fact Greedo didn't sell out, means that we probably wont be seeing 1:1 busts of a Tusken Raider or Hammerhead (2 dream 1:1 busts for me), as SSC will probably stick to sure fire characters for this line.

AlaskanStar
03-15-2007, 11:41 AM
Wow, I never thought of that but a 1:1 hammerhead bust would Rock !!!! I would definitely pay the bucks for that. A tusken would be cool too. I used to have the 3D legends bust but sold it, now I kinda regret that. It was a cool bust.

Mister_Gosh
03-15-2007, 12:38 PM
I also worry that Greedo's slow sales reduces our chance for niche/background characters.

Most of the "person in rubber mask" cantina aliens would, I think, make excellent 1:1 busts, especially since they aren't intended to be exact replicas and so can be cleaned up a bit. In addition to Hammerhead, we could get Labria, Djas, Muftak (who I think would be really nifty if they could get the fur right), Ponda Baba, and a Bith. I also think a Jawa could be a nifty choice if it had light-up eyes.

Similarly, Jabba's palace is a gold mine for this stuff. A Gammorean would rule. EV-9D9 would also be an interesting choice (again, ideally with lights).
Actually, now that I think of it, there are a few droids who would work well in the line. 3PO seems like a good choice (and one which would perhaps sell better than the background characters). I wouldn't cry if they wanted to do HK-47, though KOTOR might be too niche for this kind of product. A battle droid might make for an interesting "smaller" piece and a Droideka could be a cool "larger" piece (the Lord of Darkness bust is something like 3 feet tall with the horns, so a larger format isn't out of the question). Grievous might also be cool if they worked on getting the eyes just right.

DARTHBORAT
03-18-2007, 11:49 PM
Mister_Gosh, I am digging that list of yours for possible 1:1 busts. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Gammorean Guard, Jawa, Muftak and 3PO (a big seller IMO) would all make excellent busts. I would also like to see Salacious and Wicket. I do hope SSC will still make the background characters for this line.

The fact that Maul and Yoda sold out, makes me think that the next couple of busts will be more mainstream characters.
