with disney+ adding the 2 ewoks movies caravan of courage and the battle for endor. thoughts on a minibusts from them?
Honestly think we have a better chance of getting a Darth Jar Jar bust then seeing any of those ewoks from those specials.
At 5am in the UK it could also be considered inconvenientHere's a question... can we go back to the daytime pre-orders, or maybe something more in the early evening? I know some people have to work during the day, but the midnight / 11:00 PM CST pre-orders aren't great.

They’ll just blame the low sales on customers not wanting PT items.He's not the only one, just go thru the forum opened for this piece. I'm curious if low pre-orders on this piece will reflect how many of us feel.
I don’t want to see this company go down the toilet but they are completely in denial about any issues and they won’t even entertain feedback from long standing customers.Why do the social media reps of the DST/GG brand block people who simply speak their mind and criticize the company on issues many fans have? People are afraid to speak because they see people being blocked for speaking on concerns both in quality and timeliness.

Which is crazy, since many of us have been waiting on this piece and the buzz has been good on the Nute Gunray and Geonosian Warrior that are up for the PGM gift. And the fact they're producing 2,000 pieces of this?!? If there aren't major changes, and by that I mean a total re-sculpt, these boxes are going to be taking up a ton of warehouse space for a long time.They’ll just blame the low sales on customers not wanting PT items.
It’s clear that they don’t even see the problem with this bust which says a lot about the company unfortunately. The cookie cutter response of “We are sorry you don’t like our lame attempt“ is getting tiring.

You're right. Reading the Facebook posts today, there is ton of criticism.We do not allow folks to use curse words during their interaction with staff - sorry. I think anyone that looks at the FB page will see plenty of criticism and you certainly have pages like this to express any thoughts you might have.
I know that time is difficult for many fans. We tried a few different times, and none seemed ideal for fans in every time zone. Diamond Comics uses midnight to allow their customers to put items up for pre-sale, customers like BBTS and EE , so we though the best idea was to have a universal pre-order day and time to be fair to everyone.
One of the big reasons I use BBTS is their pile of loot option.since there are so many preorders , can GG look into combined shipping when they all start arriving or some sort of layaway? i dont mind having my orders sit until there at 3-4 able to ship at once and save on shipping. the international rates per order adds up. just as an a example i pay $30USd+ per preorder. i just bought 5 busts on todays sale and shipping was $72usd huge difference in combined shipping. thats a whole bust i could save to spend in your pocket over UPS.
Hi DSTChuckPadawan, I've collected the GG Star Wars mini bust line since the beginning and I still love the line. Seeing some recent sculpts though, particularly the Dooku prototype images, I have to ask, is GG still using 3D scans as the basis for your sculpts?
The 3D scan as the basis for a mini bust piece was the whole reason I started collecting the line because of the ability to have a very close to exact representation of the actual actor (or mask, etc) from the movies. With all due respect to artists and sculptors, in my opinion if you're looking for an accurate representation of a real world 3d object or character, there's no substitute for a 3d scan as your starting point. The artists can come in after the scan, clean it up, paint it properly and apply those finishing touches, but what sets your product apart from everyone else is that scan data.
This can't be from a Christopher Lee scan, can it? If you could elaborate a little on this subject I would very much appreciate it.
