I don't currently have any Attackus statues BUT I've been thinking of picking up the Tusken raider statue for some time now. I was first thinking about it when they hit the $200 mark and now I see it for $150. Why are these getting so cheap? Are they worth the money? Any info. would be appreciated.

The Attakus statues are definitely worth the money. I have the Sandtrooper, Jango Fett, Luke X-Wing and Tie Fighter Pilot statues (Tusken Raider being next on my list).
I also don't understand why they go so cheap on EBay. In my opinion it may be because in the past they really had not made any attempt to market their items in the U.S., but I heard that they are now making an effort to attend SDCC and other events.

Trust me though, the quality and detail of their statues are excellent.

My opinion? The poses of most of their statues are either oddly posed or not very dynamically posed. Plus, especially when compared to Gentle Giant, the likenesses are not terribly accurate. You couple all of that with the high retail prices of the line and you're going to get a fairly low demand. With Sideshow and Gentle Giant stepping in, offering their own statues that are either cheaper or give you more detail and accuracy for your money, and the Attakus stuff just doesn't have that much of an edge on its U.S.-based competition.

I wasn't really refering to Ebay about prices. Brians toys has some on sale and the Tusken raider is one of them for $150.00

I'm thinking I may have to jump on this one.

Well I just took the plunge and ordered it. What sealed the deal was a $20 off coupon code I found that expires on June 30th The total was less that $148 shipped.

Here's the link to the codes if anyone else is interested. I never ordered from Brians toys before since I felt they were too expensive but I had to jump on this one. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I just got the Tusken Statue and I'm REALLY impressed by it. Bigger than I expected and the detail is great. I dont have any other Attackus to compare it to but I think it's the nicest piece in my collection now. They (briansToys) sent me a Blister exclusive Tusken to boot #181 of 200. WELL worth $150 http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

It's funny, because I just picked up the Tusken Raider statue today at a Puzzle Zoo for $150. It's also the Blister edition. I never planned on collecting Attakus because they've been so high in price compared to Gentle Giant, and some of the poses look strange to me. But when I saw the Tusken Raider, it really impressed me, so I bought it. It should look great next to Gentle Giant's upcoming Tusken busts.

I have the Tusken Raider... it is super detailed. Mine was about $150 as well. Will look great with the GG Bust ups coming out next year. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

I'm looking forward to the busts as well. To bad we have to wait soo long to get them. Great statue though and I can't recommend it enough.

When you use a coupon code code at Brian's Toys is it supposed to show the savings after you enter the code? Because I put in the current code, which is $15 off, and my total still says $174.85 http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif
