This is a reasonably clever way for them to double dip on existing sculpts... I don't like that we're seeing more of that practice, but at least this makes for an interesting unique piece.

My thoughts exactly.

A unique exclusive that actually works. Definitely reusing old molds that never sold lol

Not like the lazy beskar shoulder piece they just offered.

Bloody hell, they’re making full use of that stormtrooper sculpt, aren’t they?

I still like the look of this one though.

This is cool looking and I would have loved to get it when TFA was out. My personal dislike for the other two movies taking things off the rails has rendered my interest in anything TFA to be minimal at best.

Personally not for me but it’s unique enough to sell a few and I suppose that’s what these web exclusives should be about. Variants that some will buy but not the end of world if you decide not to pick it up.

Another lazy and eassy money bust, a good mix of two existing moldes. They are still missing important characters from the sequels! Where is Poe Dameron????

What I find interesting is that they are pitching this one out as a five year anniversary release for TFA, made of a reused body sculpt and the head of the previous Finn bust. So it is not an issue about releasing the character as a Stormtrooper, but rather the dull way it is being offered instead of at least repositioning the arms and giving him a different face expression. Also, considering this year was the 40th anniversary of TESB we got no mini bust for that anniversary. We deserve better as collectors paying a premium than these kit-bashed releases and repaints.

Just ordered... I used my 20% Next Pre-Order item code, so that was great... but also noticed that I got charged Sales Tax for the first time since Diamond took over, so that's a bummer.

Did it change the correct amount for tax for you?
There system is charging me 10% tax on the total and shipping. My local tax rate should be 7.75%.
Their system changed late Thursday afternoon while I was shopping.

Not a fan of reusing molds either but as others have mentioned it does actually work here and I actually like it better than the first Finn MB.

As someone who pre-orders everything I want from GG I think this MB is a good candidate to wait on and snag later so I can burn one of my PGM $25 off in-stock orders coupons.

I feel like the portrait on the first Finn bust was better. I don't know if it is the same sculpt but the paint is certainly different. Look at the eyes. On the first bust he was looking left. This one, more or less straight ahead.

If I were to get this , I'd display him with his helmet on. I already have the other bust which shows his face , so I'd have to show off that bloody helmet !
