Received my Han and Chewy combo yesterday. Was hoping since they were sold as a pair they would have matching serial numbers, but they didn't.
Mine arrive tomorrow. I assumed the same thing seeing as how they were sold as a set. No biggie for me as I don’t really care about matching numbers but it’s interesting that they chose not to do this.

I got my set yesterday, haven't opened it yet though. I'm not entirely surprised the #s don't match though, seems like too much co ordination to do it. I'm also not one to focus on the #s, so it's all good.

I received Nien Nunb today that's looks remarkably like Obi-Wan Kenobi, to make it that little bit worse they shipped it from Anaheim to the UK just wrapped in a bit of brown paper! What kind of person does that, a-hole.

For all the flack the ST gets and how their product doesn't sell like PT and OT stuff, that setup looks amazing with all of them together. Wish Kylo's saber had its rugged and unstable look though.

Thanks ! And I agree. I thought about trying to smear a little clear silicone on his saber to try to replicate the look from the movies. If it didn't look right after it dries , I could just peel it right back off. Maybe I'll give it a shot.

She’s a beauty. Mine arrived today as well and I love this one. Worthy addition to the collection and fans of the character should be pleased. Hopefully we get more animated characters such as this with a realistic interpretation.

Just got #483 ! Looks pretty good. Box shows long saber blade on the long hilt and the short blade on the short hilt. Is that correct ? I kind of like the look of it the other way.

I'm fairly certain that's correct - short blade on the short hilt.

Glad to see this bust is turning out well for you and everyone else so far. And, as always, I love the Bioshock in the background!

Ok cool. Looks good both ways , so I'll set it up the correct way.
Yeah , I haven't been able to bring myself to move ole Mr. Bubbles off my desk just yet. Need a proper looking display shelf to put him on. Might try to make something out of copper pipe and fittings.
