There was a guy trying to make a stand of aluminum but since I'm not interested in this anymore, not sure what happened.

Always at work!!
I just bought a lot of the sideshow 1.1 busts..picked up greedo,maul,ackbar and vader..missed out on gamorean guard,the vader is the EX version and I was wondering if the only difference is the stand for the mask.Not a big fan of the vader because for some reason the helmet just doesn't look right to me..but I'll wait till the arrive,so there might be a vader EX up for sale soon!

Anyone here have a problem with the paint on the inside top of the face mask flaking off? I just noticed today a little white spot. Thinking it was a piece of foam or something, I blew on it and it got bigger.Upon closer inspection, I realized it was the paint coming off.
Anyone else noticed this? Think Sideshow will help me out?
I've had this bust since it was first released and just noticed this today when I was packing it up to sell to another scummer.
It's almost like it was an air bubble or something.

I finally received my Vader bust after flex pay and he has found his home next to my 1:1 Fett Bust. I can't say enough about this Bust it's amazing and I can't stop looking at it. Here are some pics.

Here is the Anakin head. I can't decide which way I want to display it I keep switching heads
Great display with the Waggoner prints!
The way you're displaying the busts, I'd say go with the helmeted look (even though I personally like the reveal better as a stand alone).
Oh, and I think you may have missed hooking the cape chain onto the hook.

Thanks!! Yeah I think I will go with the helmet look. It looks better with the Canvas and with Fett. I can switch from time to time though. Yeah I was so excited when I go this piece that I didn't notice the hook.
Thanks for pointing it out.

I'd be kinda nervous with those 1:1 busts on those pedestals
lol nah they're be alright the pedestals look bigger than what you see in the picture. The diameter are almost twice the size as the bust stands and they stand well on the ground more like an accent table. I already been tested because there was an earthquake on the east coast last week which was very unusual for the east coast. The only way they would fall if someone knocked them over and I have a lock on my Star Wars room to keep the little ones out

Good deal, I have mine on an ikea coffee table, well two of them, I like to scare the kiddies with the anakin head staring into our loft where they play..... It also freaks my wife out when she's working in the loft as well

Well Im about halfway done paying off my EX... really cant wait to get him in my home... recently picked up the 1:1 Yoda and Gammorean Guard (Thank you Mastercollector!)... Love the Guard... not keen on Yoda... especially after I heard they are making an entire 1:1 Yoda soon(thats what really changed my mind). I might be hooked on this line... im thinking Greedo or Ackbar Next... 501st would be cool but I would rather have a Stormie first ya know?

Do you mean efx? I thought that was something that Bryan at efx was considering for the future.

im not entirely sure to be honest... but either way it will be mine! Unless Cyberman did a run of his Yoda... I would have to go that way. Funny thing... I wouldnt have thought that a custom prop would look and be better than a company made prop with the liscences... but now that I joined a few other communities I see just amazing work... and to be honest I would rather give my money to a guy doin this out of his garage than any company... his would probably be a bit less $$ than the companys item as well!

Totally agree. ;) Many fan made items are better made and much cheaper than licensed collectibles.

I agree 100% with you Sergiu... but I often wonder if LFL makes the companies not be 100% accurate... I dont know if we can really blame SideShow or any other company for bieng off if LFL is telling them they can only be a certain percentage accurate. The things that we will prob never know.... ALL I know is that I cant wait to get this beast in my showroom!

Well according to GG, Lucasfilm constantly makes them change their awesome prototypes to stuff that's wildly inaccurate.

And thats total crud... well now we kinda know that if we want something 100% accurate or the closest to.. we will have to dive into the community and find a fan made... I hope Cyberman reads this ... I WANT ONE OF YOUR OT LIFE SIZE POSEABLE YODAS BRO!!!! They are immaculate!

Just got my hands on this bad boy from fellow scummer Malak, check out the pics!

I was glad that the lazy eye wasn't super noticable like in some of the sculpts that i've seen. Loving this piece!!!

Congrats on Vader. Yeah, it looks like you got one of the better reveal portraits. So you're not going to display it?
Regardless, awesome set of 1:1 busts. Looks great!

My heart is broken... the deal for the EX bust fell apart. Oh well... get the refund and keep on hunting I suppose... or get the refund and start my own Vader 1:1 project... hmmm... I could get a great start with $1400 right?

Well time for that to change, I have made a deal for the EX version and will be picking it up on Wednesday :)

Can't wait to get this and never thought I would be able to score the EX version
