Somebody in the GG SDCC concept Fett thread mentioned the ability to display both concept helmets between the new bust and the original one. I admit I hadn't really thought about that, so I caved and ordered one. Despite a 500 edition size, it was still available this morning.

But the helmets are essentially the same for both busts. The only real difference is the breather painted on the new one on the slotted visor version and the additional ear markings on the T-visor version.

Right, but this way I can put the ear-marked one on the new bust, and the other concept look on the original.

My pre-ordered Amazon Echo Base Han and Tauntaun Funko Pop! arrived today. So much for quitting.

I got the ornament. This was way easier than it would have been to stand in the Hallmark line at SDCC on Thursday.

Are you sure they're sold out? The web pages state that they'll be available on August 30th.

The BMF looks to have a bunch of extras thrown in: Chewie, Hondo, two Porg 3-packs, two RADAR dishes and it looks like it may come with three Kyber Crystal containers. That all gives a little more value.


UPDATE: This was posted on YodasNews...

Starting August 30, look for the Trading Outpost collection in stores and online for toys, collectibles, fashion items, books, and more, all expanding on the stories and excitement of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

I love SDCC week. It's so nice to see a bunch of reveals and new product hitting shelves as well.

3 new offerings from GG. The Anakin bust is OK but I'm not going to do the animated style busts.The Vader looks awful to me, and The Child is cute but I would prefer a bust of some sort.

I think they added the chair because the Child would be so small that you wouldn't get anything. Kind of like they did with BB-8. The $191 price is enough to keep me from getting it. I already have the Hot Toys 1:6 scale Mandalorian with Child, the Hot Toys Life-Size The Child and the Sideshow The Child all on order. I think I can pass on this one.

The Vader looks disproportionate and lifeless to me. The size would be cool, but the sculpt just doesn't work for me.

I'm definitely not doing the animated busts.

There's a video of the Hot Toys figures coming out, which they describe details about each one, but there is a giant Rancor in the background and it is never mentioned. It's hard to tell exactly how big it is, but it looks freakin' cool.
