I don't really like the pose of the Orange Trooper, but the white is calling to be my first Attakus. I really don't want to go down that path, because I'll probably end up getting the orange to go with it and the Probe Droid, which I really like.

LINQ0311
02-17-2007, 02:12 AM
These are both very cool statues, and hard to pass up. I do like the more static pose of the exclusive, as I'm not really sure what Attakus is trying to capture with the Orange.

Either way, I like both, but I shy away from these guys these days because of price. We'll see when the time comes if I can give them a new home!

with attakus its all about the waiting game. if you wait long enough you will find a good deal. i have quite a few attakus status myself and have paid about half of the retail price on all of them.

as far as the exc. sandtrooper goes i might have to bite the bullet and get one right away. with only 700 made it will be difficult to find later.

blue_rogue
02-17-2007, 04:10 PM
Yeah, I don't think there'll be any good deals to be found on this one.

I like the pose for this one much more than the other one. I've never seen an Attakus statue in person, so I may try to get one of these if it won't be too much of a hassle.

Actually I have all the statues from them so far ... and now they also start with this exclusive [censored] ... if I cannot get this one for retail I stop coillecting these as I am getting pissed about them starting this also. I do not want to pay scalper prices ! Wrong move in wrong direction for Attakus ...

One thing I've always found about Attakus that differentiated them was their releasing each Star Wars statue with an edition of 1500, regardless of the character's relative popularity. (I know there's been some foreign editions where they've added a couple hundred, but largely this has been the rule). I think sticking to this has set them above the fray as far as having to constantly recalculate edition sizes in an attempt to please everyone as Sideshow somewhat does and Gentle Giant certainly does (ending up pleasing very few in the process!)

We'll see, but I think starting down the exclusive smaller-edition path may not be the best long-term strategy for Attakus.

flatcapandwhipet
02-19-2007, 04:17 PM
I totally agree with you what you have said regarding the 1500 releases, it's so much more desireable to know that it is only ever going to be 1 of 1500, well apart from the 2 Vaders of course.

Please, please no need to go down the exclusives road though.

Medusa
02-19-2007, 05:52 PM
Maybe we should go over to the Attakus forum and let them know there as well ... I like the statue - I dislike they make a popular thing like this rare so people can't get it for retail if they are not living in a specific part of the world. This only leads to higher prices and collectors fade out as they do not want to pay double the price ...

I'm not saying I like it, but I think it's Attakus' attempt to change a losing game/generate more interest/buzz for their product. Clearly GG and SS are way more popular than Attakus (does anyone wonder why there isn't even a dedicated forum to discuss Attakus here at RS?). You can see it on ebay where many of these Attakus statues sell for 40-50% of retail. I really don't believe it's a quality issue as their latest releases have been outstanding. If Attakus is having trouble moving product they probably felt they needed to change things up.

Yes, I see what you're saying. It's definitely true that many of their statues seem to be hard for them to sell through, while a few remain quite a bit higher than retail in the secondary market.

Ultimately, I think what holds Attakus back is simply their pricepoint. ~$300-450 in the U.S. per statue is a heck of a lot of funds to commit. I love the few Attakus statues I have, but some of the ones they've done, esp. the human likenesses, I just can't see spending that much money on. Judging by the secondary market, a lot of others can't either.

So maybe the limited edition route will help at least generate some short-term interest. I can't help but think that a more realistic price structure would help as well, but then again, I'm no expert on how they arrived at their SRPs. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I will say that Attakus quality control is hands-down superior to Gentle Giant and a bit above Sideshow (my favorite company) as well. I'm sure that factors into their higher pricing.

ump
02-20-2007, 11:19 AM
Not only attakus statues dropped the price on 2 nd market,part of the Attakus statues dropped the price but most of the earlier statues are still very high price($500-$1500 + range),some GG and Sideshow items are also drop the price on some items (but some are still stay at high price too),To be honest,Attakus is very popular in Europe,but not in USA,I have no idea why but thats no doubt the Attakus provide the best quality on star wars statues line!

Medusa
02-20-2007, 02:37 PM
lol sorry ... to me GG and Attakus is different products. 1500 was for a long time something releiable while GG produces most of their product at a much lower pricepoint and much higher numbers.

MAKING EXCLUSIVE ITEMS does not in any way make a product more attractive to me - what the hell is special about a product I cannot buy because it is sold only to people in USA while I live in germany ? and what is making it more attractive to pay twice price ? sorry I do not see your point here ...

ump
02-20-2007, 03:11 PM
This is not the first Attakus exclusive statue,the first one is the yoda 1 sp. ed.(limited 250),I think excl ed. is still very attractive (thats why GG and Sideshow have many excl. items).Most collectors want special ed. items http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Medusa
02-20-2007, 06:12 PM
Lets hope they sell it at CIV ... wonder if most of those "I like exclusive stuff" guys around here that cannot attend would love to see that happen ... well I know thats not going to be the case as Attakus is just too expensive but I hate the fact having to pay scalpers thats all ... for me these high prices items are exclusive enough already - no need to make the collectros angry because they cannot complete their collection or pay lets say 800 USD ...

What's wrong with the eye lenses?

I'm so torn on this one. I don't own any Attakus pieces and not sure I want to start now, especially given the price point. But I like this piece alot, much better than the Orange Pauldron Sandtrooper.

From Kamikaz, it was $379, with a $50 deposit.

I'm assuming they ship overseas, because they offer free shipping on all pre-orders, but only to Canada & the U.S.. So I'd guess that means they do ship overseas; I'd contact them to be sure.

Anybody that's interested, I got some replies to the places I sent e-mails to.

AlterEgo - he wasn't aware of the white one, but he was gonna check with Attakus and see if he'd be able to get some.

BBTS - they should be getting some, but they don't know when they'll be up for order

EE - said it wasn't available; I don't think he knew that I wanted to know if they would have it, not if it was available now.


I also got an e-mail from Kamikaz confirming the order and saying the statue ships in May.

still have some more to offer. I wouldn't offer pre-order if I couldn't
cover them.

Oh...you snagged 2 Sergeants! That's fantastic!!!

If you have the cash, this one is the ultimate troop builder.

Now, back to me finding one. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

i opened mine but havent gotten around to taking pics. i'm in awe of how beautiful this statue is. this is one of ATTAKUS' best work so far.

Now I am debating springing for the other one also.
Those displays look awesome!

as i keep walking past my sandtrooper i keep help but be amazed. it had been awile since my last attakus purchase. i had forgotten how beautiful these statues are. i have always said attakus makes the finest SW collectible out there.

I've never been a fan of the Attakus line ~ with that being said, this release (SandTrooper) looks pretty nifty.

DB, buy one and you'll be hooked. these are so impressive in person. you can really find some great deals on ebay for attakus. i would strongly recommend the tusken raider, clone trooper, and jango fett (my personal favorites)

i would recommend the Vader1,Vader 2, clone trooper,emperor,Grievous and jango fett !!!All look PERFECT!!!

The tusken raider is great! And to top it off I scored one at CIV for $130. Can't beat that!
I really like the looks of that Gam Guard also.

And I finally recieved my Sergeant. Troop builders with cash are scooping this thing up. Looks great posed with the other one. Now let's take out a 2nd motgage for a dewback!

ump...this one is hard to come by at retail price. With the limited # made and the trooper builders, ebay is looking like the best bet at double the price for the moment.
