    Being a resident of California has its benefits . . . NOT! WE have one party rule here, guess which party by the taxes!

I've worked in the product development / website design / photo taking industry & one thing is for certain...and this goes for across all things...presentation is EVERYTHING!!! If I were the photographer there @ EFX, I would've been taking better HR pics of the details such as the more notable areas of the ship...the radar dish & blaster holes behind it, the cockpit, engine vents, and some really close ones of the sides showing off all of that intricate detail work they've done.

    It's a marvelous ship & the craftsmanship ranks right up there as far as I can tell. I'd love to own this piece don't get me wrong but am anxious to see what QmX has in store for their version. Unfortunately, my budget can only go so far and I also have to take into consideration if QmX's version is more expensive in which might make the decision extremely easy for me to make...but if its similar in price...then it's going to be a tough call for me to make.
    at Comic Con the QMX people said the falcon would not be ready until the next Comic Con ( so Sept 2017) . If it even sees the light of day I would be surprised so you might want to grab this one.

    Can't order from another vendor that deals with efx? Also a little dubious that all three tax rates are identical, seems like an error.

    THIS!


    - I think that tax thing is also a glitch where it's charging it three times in error.
    - I too am wondering why there aren't any quality pictures of the actual Falcon and mirrored base in their site. The only picture they have on their site of the Falcon and the base looks distorted/photoshopped and not of the actual product. The picture is a joke. As others have mentioned, presentation is everything.



    - I'm going to hold off on ordering right now 1) based on the tax glitch 2) because of their historical product delivery times, and 3) mostly because they said that they wouldn't take any preorders on new products until the Biker Scout Helmet started shipping. Really eFX?

    Yeah and the base shown at SDCC was much smaller.

    After waiting for years, I think I can wait a little longer for a new offering from a different vendor that shows promise. Nothing against this offering at all, just looking at all the choices.

    Through conversations I've had, I think Bryan does the product shots himself. He has a photography hobby as well with some serious pro gear.

    Until I get my Biker Scout Helmet, EFX isn't directly getting another penny from me! BBTS has this up for preorder now, no taxes and no money down. Now that's what I'm talking about.

    Update: BBTS DOES require a $150 non-refundable deposit! That sucks.
    2nd Update: Razors Edge, $50 deposit, no taxes.

    Not sure I understand EFX's business model, but if they are reserving the right to keep your money if there isn't enough interest (preorders) then I'll have to pass. They should be willing to refund the money if for whatever reason they don't go to production. When they start shipping the product, I'll think about giving them my money.
