Regardless of the comparison, the helmet sculpt looks like crap. Maybe its just the perspective of the photos, as it doesn't look too bad in the left side profile shot. All the other shots make it look elongated and angular though.

wow.. everyone knows my favorite character (at least one of my top 5) is Oola.. this piece is stunning to say the least. I would love to buy both bib and oola but the pricetag is to steep for them. I doubt GG will ever make an oola statue so i may have no choice but to get her. after all.. she is one of my favorite characters and i have been waiting FOREVER to see a pic. For some reason, i dont care for the sandtrooper ... not sure why.

I am just glad that I never started the Jabba Palace, LOL, Attakus has been doing wonders with that scene, probably the most expensive one in any SW collection.

Anyway, TK333 if you can probably get her later on eBay for a lot less than retail but be warned once you go Attakus never go backus!!! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I like my GG sandtroopers better just for the different poses you can put them in,and why does attakus have them looking off into space? they did that with the boba fett also,drives me crazy.and didnt attakus say they dont like how SS mixes media(cloth and cermaic) whats up with the fishnet body suit?

That is exactly one of the strongest points of Attakus, that my friend is a perfect paint application that LOOKS LIKE cloth!!! is not really a fishnet.


BTW Attakus never said that some collectors did.

I'm not sure that the fish net is paint I think it's cloth.

They don't like ckoth but they had already produce statue ( not sw statues )like Pelisse statues with clothes and Oola might need some cloth doesn't she http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Hum, I can't find the pre-production pic of Oola (I don't have permission from Attakus to show it anyway) but if I remember well she has that there before the paint process. Anyway, she is a great looking statue!

Oola looks really good. I agree that the sandrooper helmet looks kind of funky. I also don't care for the pose. The rifle that he's holding, though, that's what the rifle that came with Gentle Giant's Squad Leader Sandtrooper bust should have looked like. The rifle that the bust has doesn't have the strap and it just doesn't look right to me for some reason. I was really disappointed with it because I wanted to display him with the rifle. I ended up giving him the rifle from the Stormtrooper bust. I like how it looks like that, even if his arm is a bit too clean.

Not too long ago I was thinking about getting the Attakus statues of characters that I figured Gentle Giant probably wouldn't make into statues. Like Bib, Oola, Wicket, Probe Droid, etc. Unfortunately I came to the conclusion that I just wouldn't be able to afford it.

pound for pound, the GG statues are far more superior

I truly don't think so. Wish not to start the war again but you're wrong.
Wonder if you ever see the whole line. Sure there is some face thats sucks but the sculpting and paint scheme are always there.
Exemple: Look at the GG Vader statue and Attakus Vader could you truly sy that the Gg statue is FAR better ( or even better ) than the Attakus ?

Overpriced ? Well I guess you must pay people for their work, something you don't have to when you use machines. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Something you muxt always kept in mind is taht Attakus is somtimes bounds by LF decisions, they're aware of the "unacurracy" of the rifle but it is LF who commands that. Unfortunately for us. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif

Again it is impossible in this forums to have a thread about Attakus without people start bringing GG on the table.
"GG statues are far superior" that is your opinion and I respect it but I don't see how it fits here in an Attakus thread.
Like French_Sidious said, there are some Attakus statues that are amazing and other not that great but quality is always right there on the top. GG also makes great products I have a lot of them but they have also made some mistakes and lately their quality have dropped quite a bit (paint applications). I wonder if that is for their giant edition sizes.
Two different vendors, two different products and two different targets.

oldschool_Jawa
09-16-2006, 04:11 PM
No way the GG statues are even close to being on par with the attakus stuff, no freakin' way. YES, attakus is way overpriced but they are also alot bigger and look way better in person. Oh and one huge advantage attakus has is that you don't have to worry about extremely crappy quality control issues such as horrible paint apps.

I can't find the large pre-production images either but here's a small version I found: http://img169.imageshack.us/img169/4530/bonusattakusoolaze2.jpg

The fishnet is clearly not painted on. Her sculpted body is nude. This was one thing everybody noticed when the pre-prod pics first came out.

Yeah, the pose is what bothers me too. Sculpt looks great.

Oola also looks great although her face looks a little weird. It's nearly 100% realistic, but it's "off" just enough to look kinda creepy.

I know what you mean but I think it's the just shine from the lighting on the glossy paint/plastic. The unpainted proto pics of the headsculpt looked spot-on perfect.

They are made of Cold Cast Porcelain, which is resin with porcelain powder which make it more brittle.

From http://www.razorsedgecollectibles.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=1430:


For those of you who do not know Attakus, they are a French based company who manufacture these wonderful statues. These statues are hand sculpted and painted. They are all made of cold cast resin.



Definition of cold cast resin from http://www.answerbag.com/q_view.php/25951:


Cold cast resin is a polymer (i.e. plastic) resin used to make molds. Being cold cast means that no heat is used in the curing of the mold, but usually an accelerator is added while the resin is liquid.
These resins come in a wide variety of viscosity and elasticity, meaning that they can be soft or hard, and can be applied by brush, by pouring or by kneading.



So, I'm sticking with my "plastic" comment. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

TA2215
09-20-2006, 11:38 PM
With all due respect:

From the Attakus web site:

"Les statues Attakus sont en resine (cold-cast porcelain en anglais). Par contre, au toucher on sent clairement une difference de materiau entre les 2: l'Attakus fait plus "porcelaine" mais fait du coup plus fragile, tandis que la resine fait plus "plastique" mais fait du coup plus resistante.

Translation:

The statues from Attakus are made in resine (cold-cast porcelain in English). There is a key difference of how the material feels between the pure resin and cold cast porcelain Attakus does more "porcelain" therefore it is more fragile, while the pure resin does more "plastic" which make them more resistante.

Also you can look at Starwars.com Cargo Bay section for statues (they are listed under Porcelain)

Yeah, it probably is the flash on Oola's face that makes her look a little weird. I remember when the first "in the wild" pics of the Gentle Giant Chewie statue surfaced, and they had some uberflash in 'em...made the statue look like total crap.

I see what you mean Adam; but, usually the helmeted statues from Attakus are pretty good. The pose is what unmakes the Sandtrooper statue for me.

Oola, on the other hand, I'll be getting for sure regardless how off the likeness is. I've accepted that Attakus SW statue's are more of an "Artist's" interpretation of the character rather than a definitive representation; so, I can let the likeness being off slide. Along with the GG Slave Leia, this will go great in my Women of Star Wars display. Here's hoping we get more female SW characters in statue form soon from all the SW high-end statue manufacturers.
