Hey, anyone getting Bubo? I saw he was up for pre-order at Nside supposedly with an edition size of 500 pieces (although right below that, it says Edition Size TBD). Looks kind of cool.

Liked the movie but I don't know if I can afford much more odd pieces in my collection. He does look good though.

i'm bored at work and was thinking...is this going to be resin, or do you thunk there is a possibility that it could be metal?

I wonder if all these clash of the titans releases have anything to do with the rumor about Peter Jackson redoing it in 08? although it would be cool to see a revised version,I am more excited about the Conan movie rumors,we need a third one!

Not originally in my collectible budget for this year, but I pre-ordered him from MWC. I used my bounty credits I had accumulated up to this point, so I got a decent deal on him. It think he looks good.

I just pre-ordered it at Razorsedge, along with the Jawa set.

500 is pretty limited - I think some distributors may have a problem filling orders for Bubo (namely the ones who only use Diamond)...

Wow - only 500. That is one great piece, though.

I pre-ordered Bubo as I loved that Owl when I was a kid plus this statue looks amazing http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

It is made of Resin, but the body of the owl appeats to have the same kind of finish as the Metal on other GG items, still I think it's the paint application and not the material, I think its all resin. With a run of 500 and from what I heard from several places pre-selling this, I don't think it will be around for long.

pre-ordered the second i saw it was available. i probably wouldn't get any other collectible from this movie, but Bubo was the best gift from the Olympians to Perseus, and he was given by coolest deity ever.

how funny...I thought this thread would be about Gentle Giant doing a new bust of "Bubo" from Jabba's palace and maybe comparing it to the Sideshow figure.

Then I find out it's the actual Clash of the Titans movie. Sigh. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I just dont think the movie was that great. Deffinately not statue worthy.

Hey, I guess Athena really liked her owl.

Great movie all-around. Loved the effects, monsters, mythology, etc. As an added bonus, it was one of the first times as a kid I remember seeing a woman's bosom up there on the big screen....teasing me.

Or maybe that was Beastmaster... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

yup. some of Harryhausen's all-time best. not to mention how intense the opening sequence was. i was six when i saw it, so it easily joined the club with Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark. it was also infinitely better than Troy.

and it was 1981 Pickles. Beastmaster was 1982.

Is Bubo the Owl really limited to 500?

I pre-ordered him already as I loved Bubo the Owl as a kid but I haven't seen any online stores list an edition size yet http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

i thought that edition size seemed really low considering the GG other CotT products weren't limited, but GG official website has the edition size as 500. https://www.gentlegiantltd.com/catalog/product/detail/204

i loved him as well, and i just placed my order with razors

Thanks for the link wennma01. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

I thought that # sounded low as well but I guess not. I put in my order as soon as he went up for pre-sale as the pictures of Bubo look great.

is Entertainment Earth one of those distributors?

I decided to cancel this when it was suddenly scheduled for June release. I sent Entertainment Earth an email, and was wondering why I got no response.

Then I did receive an email. But it was a shipping notice. Bubo is on his way.

So much for saving $70. My credit card is going to kill me in my sleep. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif
