All of us that, one way or another, got behind it anyway we could deserve a lot of credit. Persistence pays, despite any obstacles and/or backlash we could find on the way. I still cannot believe it is being made. I rarely PM anyone from GG, but I went ahead when I found out about Amanaman getting the mini bust treatment, and thanked Daniel for getting this going for us. To me, it is exciting to see a character that stands a very little chance, but one that many have wanted, getting produced. I even like more the fact the pose is very close to the mini bust mock-up I first made.This one looks better the more I see it & Julians picture definitely helped for us to see it more clearly defined, so looking forward to adding this to my collection, you definitely picked a great looking character to get behind there Julian, it’s awesome.
Still so many characters missing from episodes 7&8. If Ahsoka and the range trooper are getting solicited next month then any new releases are probably a good way off.Amanaman, Bespin Leia, and Spacetrooper are next year's releases. Yavin Leia and the Holiday Fett are expected to be with us sometime this year. But, will there be anything else to look forward to this year other than Yavin Leia and the Holiday Fett? What else will be released as far as mini busts after the ones we already know about?
I took a little break Julian. There hasn't been much Star Wars news to talk about. I've been getting into Sideshow's Court of the Dead line lately. But haven't been posting anything in that section either. Hope all the regulars on here are doing well !What a comeback, Hank! I'm right there with you
* Where the heck have you been?
Max,I absolutely love this piece and cannot wait to add him to the collection. Funny, he mentions the Kenner figure and the first time I saw that figure, it was at a flea market in a case with other SW loose figures. I told the seller that he had it wrong and that creature was not in SW and in the wrong display case. Obviously the seller knew more than some teenage punk and sure enough - he told me where to look for Amanaman in Jabba's Palace and as soon as I got home from the market I popped on the VHS tape (yes showing my age there) and lo and behold, there's Amanaman next to Han in Carbonite! Ever since then, Amanaman has been my favorite character and now you know why!! LOL
I own the DVDs from about 10+ years ago now. They did for the briefest of time the Special Editions with the originals (2 disc). The original, unaltered ones I believe are from laserdisc and the transfer is not great, but getting to watch the OT unaltered in what is the highest quality I am aware of possible is still awesome.Max,
We're all aged. LOL Like you and Julian and others, I have these on VHS as well. It is now the only way I know of to watch the originals without any new extra features. This way I still get to see that Han shot first.
Cool, thanks for the info Kev. I will keep an eye out when they start to ship to see if there are any left from canceled orders.Cut off was in September I believe, ages ago anyway. There may be some available once they start shipping our orders out, seems to be the way they do things if looking at previous years.
