Haha! Nice play of words there, Turbo.

It'd be awesome if they would make it though, especially considering the fellow collector who wanted it the most, passed away without even receiving the PG items he preordered last year. Sad.

Dude are you kidding me? :( not anyone's fault. But damn. You see the comments on FB today about the release dates? GG is using submarines to ship now.

Haha! Submarines? ... which direction are they heading? LOL

Edit: Nevermind. The LightSword News Network is getting information the PGM gifts from last year have gotten to port, indeed ... via submarine. Yay! :)

With how successful the Pick a Bust vote was last year and the anticipation and sell outs of Ahsoka, can we expect another Pick a Bust soon?

Yep and most of the Honey trap statues are on the ocean floor.

I would think being able to make pick when Ponda Baba won, and now Malakili, they have pretty much taken care of that department.
Ponda Baba vote was just exclusive to Cantina aliens and Rancor Keeper was a twitter poll with 71 votes and 1 of 3 possible options, with the other stuff being Marvel.

I'm talking about how they did it last year with Ahsoka and all the different eras the choices represented.

I agree, it would have been nice to have had a vote like last year that represented different eras and mediums of Star Wars. It was informative to see the support that various options received, even the lady from the comics. But I would guess that the Ponda Baba vote is as close as we're going to get this year. I don't know if they could do a vote now if they wanted to, as there are probably many 2018-19 PGM members like me, that didn't re-up for 2019-20, and I would wonder about GG's ability to steer the emails to the appropriate group of people.

What was so informative about having Aphra? I guess the fact nobody wanted her. And if they wanted to have a vote like last year's, they would do it no matter whether more or less people re-up the PGM or not. We have never accounted for much on their decision making.

Hi Chuck, are there any plans for any busts from The Mandalorian? Any updates on the bust poll with the Rancor Keeper? How about a bust or busts for the 40th anniversary of Empire next year? A Bespin/Dagobah Luke with backpack and Yoda would be awesome

Any other bust related news you can give us? I'd buy as many new mini busts that you can dish out

PS-we need a Squidhead mini bust asap!

I’ve only had to contact hem twice since the buy out. First time was within 24hrs, second time was roughly two days.

Hi Chuck,

I wanted to bring up the massive price hike in shipping (and especially international shipping). I’ve had to cancel all my pre-orders with you recently plus as a longtime pgm member I just can’t use my membership anymore for any exclusives as they are just too expensive. Prices have literally doubled.

I'm finding the categorization of GG's statues to be vague and confusing. It seems like a "Milestones" statue is 1/6 scale and $200.00. Then there are "Collectors Gallery Statues" for $160.00. What scale are these? Finally there seems to be a new category, "Premier Collection" in 1/7 scale at $150.00. What is the difference between the Collectors and the Premier?

As far as I'm aware:

Collectors Gallery. 1/8
Premier (i.e. Dreamer statues). 1/7
Milestone 1/6

i'm sure they'll be a 1/5 and 1/9 along at some point.

It gets a little more complicated with the name calling for the statues. Some of the 1:6 scale ones like Chewbacca, are under the "Milestones" title, while others like the Praetorian Guard and the Executioner are just 1/6 scale. Why not just have them all as 1/6 scale? ... and why so many different sizes? Whatever.

Any reply to this Chuck? Just gone to order the Sith Trooper but for $50 shipping, forget it!

I haven’t ordered the last three mini busts because of the massive hike in international shipping costs.
I’m honestly not sure I can continue to justify the price if the shipping stays this high.
long story short - You are losing orders GG

Funny as bad as the old GG was back in the day, they were better than the current GG.

Not much, I just wanted to check in and see how everyone was doing. Some of you guys have kept in touch via other social media but I wanted to see how the rest of the forum was doing.

That's unfortunate, sorry about that Turbo.

Thank you for your kind comment, Chris. Much appreciated. I still work with PS but I'm doing it all in my own Limelighting thread where I'm trying to record my collection. Unfortunately there isn't much to work with these days. I do come out of my "cave" every now and then when something new pops up.

Thank you as well for all the help you provided while being GG's voice here in forums.👍 Keep coming back!

Toy Fair 2020: Not a single mini bust from the Original Trilogy nor the Prequels shown. Just a bunch of cartoon stuff and The Nannylorian, and scales people never asked for. Is this all GG have to offer? One Vader statue ( ANOTHER Vader statue) and a giant Tie fighter pilot bust. At this pace I'll never get another membership again. Back now to the drug addict and needle infested streets of my dear San Francisco.
