Thanks, man. I completely understand about having something fixed, but still knowing it was broken making one feel a bit unease. I have a couple of pieces in my collection I feel the same way about. Despite no one can see where they broke being such clean breaks, it is just the fact of knowing they are no longer perfect what bothers. I think it is some type of OCD symptom most collectors have. It diminishes with time, though.Here’s to hoping yours arrives safe. The hilt was a clean break, so it can be fixed but of course that’s not the point. Plus, even if the fix is invisible, I’ll know it’s there and it will never stop bothering me. I didn’t get the Sandtrooper, but just as with that one I can see the long-term storage issue with this styrofoam. Honestly I’m afraid to even put it back in for fear of snapping an arm off.
Oh man, that sucks. Keeping my fingers crossed waiting to see how mine arrives next week.Well just got a response from EE. Unsurprisingly they don’t have any available for exchange. I emailed GG the same time I emailed EE to see if there was any way they could let me swap it out, no response at all. EE did offer me a 20% refund which I thought was more than fair.

They should definitely make the pick-a-bust vote competition a yearly thing. At least every other year. That’d be greatJust got her today.
Damn this might be their best bust in a loooong time. Practically flawless, got lucky with the paint apps being fantastic and nothing broken. They need to make this a yearly thing with the fan vote of 6-8 characters from all eras of Star Wars.
That styrofoam needs to go though, was practically crumbling in my hands.
I missed out and I'm not a PGM. I guess I'll never get one for a reasonable price.It's interesting that they would raffle off the remaining ones rather than putting them up for anyone to buy like the old days. Or even just first come first served for the PGMs.
I may be wrong, but I thought I read in the fine print that PGMs who already bought one were not eligible to win. You might want to double check.I'll enter the raffle. If I win it I'll hook you up with one at cost. I don't collect from the animated series and I already got one for my son. Wish me luck.
If this was directed at me, I'm OK with it.I'll enter the raffle. If I win it I'll hook you up with one at cost. I don't collect from the animated series and I already got one for my son. Wish me luck.
Edit: I just entered it. If I win it will be this much ...

* Plus whatever the Post Office tells me it will be sent to your address.
* Let me know if you are O.K with this. Otherwise, I'll get in touch with GG and cancel my entry.
I guess the reason for the raffle is so you cannot apply your PG coupon as an "in stock" product.It's interesting that they would raffle off the remaining ones rather than putting them up for anyone to buy like the old days. Or even just first come first served for the PGMs.
In order to fairly distribute the remaining busts to customers, Gentle Giant Ltd. is holding a raffle for 2019 Premier Guild members to be able to purchase Ahsoka for her original price, $120. All 2019 PG members will be allowed to place an order, but only a select number will be randomly chosen to have their orders completed. Only the winning customers will be charged, non-winning customers will not be charged. Customers who have previously purchased Ahsoka will not be eligible. The Membership Discount will not apply.
The first bust to sell out almost instantly since..when? Ever?I'm seeing these go on Ebay for $400+, with an AP going for $800! I know she's pretty much the most popular female SW character atm, but that's ridiculous, haha
I would love realistic sculpts of those characters. And I would not say no to a Durge mini bust. Maybe a deluxe one with alternate arms/helmets?With Clone Wars back, the possibilities are endless. Not only can we get Ventress, Savage and Cad Bane, but all the PT jedi should come back into play as well. Maybe we can finally get that Ki-Adi-Mundi bust! This could turn out really well for those of us that enjoy the animated series - I just hope it doesn't pull all the attention away from Rebels. There are several busts I'd like to see from that show.
