Thought I'd post the question here since I did a poll on another forum. Like there really is any competition here. GG Leia rocks the house, and the likeness is far better than Attakus could ever dream of achieving.

its not like they're my favorite or anything. its just pics never do them justice. most everybody that rips on them dont have any or have never even seen one in person. i love GG as much as the next person. try comparing GG's to ATTAKUS' chewie. its no contest.

Agree with you there. Pics never do any company's products justice. I don't collect Attakus 'cause of their prices. So GG is good enough for me.

Well I myself own the Leia Attakus but I do have to admit to really liking this GG one a little more but only based on the pics I saw so far. I mean look at the detail in the face and the muscle tone. In no way am I saying the Attakus sucks (cause I would have never bought it if it did) I am just saying this GG one is slightly more lifelike.

Different subject, different thread, different forum kiddo. This thread (on the RS forum) has to do with the GG Leia and Attakus Leia statue's. SS is nowhere in the title; so, again, keep this thread on topic. If you would like me to go into that thread, on that forum, and comment on it, I will; but I don't think you, or anyone else who posted in that thread, would like what I have to say about it. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

There is a lot of tension here ! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif

I do not know either of you and I'm not on statuesforum.
So I will not enter your " war " nor side with one of you guys.

what I could say about the Attakus / Gg statues is that it seems evident that GG is giving us a better result .


Does it makes Attakus a company with bad products ?

Here the truth:
- When comparing results, we must always keep in mind the the way the products are made.
Sculpting and scanning are 2 differents way and can give great result.
Yet it is easier to scan than to sculpt.

Sure it's affect the final result, butyou need greater talent to sculp and to me it worth more to be talented than to use a computer with a softaware you don't create.

- Second, people should know that Lucasfilm denied Attakus to produce a more accurate Leia, it was Lucasfilm wwho ordered Attakus to modify her face and it is not the only statue where Lucasfilm asked for modifications.

So it is. Does Attakus the worst company on the market or isn't Lucasfilm who try to break down their talent ?

I'm not saying that their products are the best of the best.
I don't like of lot of their products but they have made some of the greatest Star Wars statues ever made so far.

And to answer the question, I like the GG Leia far more than the Attakus. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

French_Sidious,i'm agree with you,some attakus human face statue look noit good,but all the other non human statues are great!i love it!of couse,i'm collecting GG and sideshow too.but my main statue colection is attakus.when i got the attakus grievous,very perfect item,i just want to let people know that when they are talking about the ss grievous,hope they have a chance to see the attakus personally too and then make a chioce to buy either version.(or both version),i don't mind SS is much popular in US but doesn't like people attack to attakus.it's because make a lot of perfect SW statues!

Based on pics I've seen, and a handful of statues I've seen in person, I just don't like Attakus stuff. I wouldn't go as far as calling it crap, or calling Attakus a bad company, but I certainly don't find their statues aesthetically appealing in the slightest. The "pictures don't do it justice" line is kind of moot though, since we're comparing pictures to pictures. Now, if you mean "studio pictures don't do it justice", then Im sure someone can find an "in person" photo of Leia, and it's still not going to look as impressive as the GG Leia.

That said, I absolutely love the Attakus metal collection, the Falcon diorama is gorgeous, and the Dagobah diorama is shaping up to be stunning as well. On the other hand, Im also less than impressed by the figures that come with the line. They just don't seem on par with the workmanship of the diorama.

I don't like the statues, so I just don't buy em. But, I also don't own any Gentle Giant stuff anymore, but that will soon change with the Animated stuff. I might get Leia, but Im holding on to hopes that we can get a PF Slave Leia from Sideshow.

To each their own. Collect what you like and what you want.

Well said! My sentiments exactly. The bottom line is to get what you like, what you can afford, and be happy with it. Personally, I am a GG and SSC guy, but I wouldn't try to dissuade someone from purchasing Attakus. Competition between similar companies is a good thing for the consumer, as they need to keep producing top notch products (like GG's Slave Leia) to maintain positive momentum. Look at the current wrestling scene, it ain't the same since ECW folded and Vince bought WCW. While entertaining, there is no one pushing the envelope anymore. Competition is healthy. If Attakus keeps on prducing statues that enough people feel are the best, and they purchase, it will keep GG and SSC on their toes just enough to keep putting out their best and most innovative efforts, which will only keep their consumers happy - like me!

It is a forum board and he should be able to say whatever he wants. Forum boards= the ability to debate. Soem of you here take things way too personally like how I got bashed on the Sideshow forum boards because I think their 12" line is crap. People screamed at me for saying that and it did not persuade from not posting my comments because it is what it is...a forum board...full of people's opinion. Now I know I went off topic but it angers me when I see people trying to dictate what others say around here. You should be free to speak your mind.

Like I said I own the Leia Attakus but if this GG Statue is as good in person as it looks in the picture there is no question hands down that this is superior over the Attakus statue. And to address some other views yes the facial sculpting on Attakus statues on the humans leave less to be desired. Why would anyone spend $400 on a statue when the face lloks horrible? Again...that is my opinion.

of course GG is the best! To tell you the truth they both need work on the faces. Allthough pics never do any justice.

Straight to the point - the GG Leia is awesome!

I was watching eBay for the Attakus Leia, Han, Salacious and Jabba, but I knew the chance of finding the lowball price I wanted to pay was slim to none...

But now with this Leia and the SSC 12" Jabba line, I think I can finally quit searching for the Attakus versions. I'm about to have my fill of ROTJ goodness at a much better price.

Different techniques, different styles, different targets.

I believe what Mini_Rock is asking is which one you like the most (without caring what is the creative process and limitations of the artist in every piece), and I must say that GG did a great work with Leia and they are definitely improving more and more with each piece.

For human characters if you are looking for face accuracy go for Sideshow or GG (but I must say that Attakus might surprise us really soon! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif)

Me I like all of them but I love Attakus sculpting process, paint techniques that creates several textures and lightning in the pieces and of course low edition numbers without variants and NO CON EXCLUSIVES!! LOL.

It is great that we have a choice of what pieces to buy based on likeness, budget, scale and others. I know I do and love to get THAT piece that I can truly admire.

Well, I have mostly 1/6-1/7 scale statues so, I'm going with the GG Leia. I think the sculpt looks better also. Besides, it should look great next to my SS Jabba and Salacious! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif
I do have 1 Attakus statue and that's their G.Grievous.
It's the only Grievous made that's pretty much in scale with GG and Koto statues and it is VERY accurate and well made..
