Its not like GG produce a lot of SW releases but it seems like what they do make 1/4 or maybe even 1/2 of their bust line are exclusives.

This is an awesome looking threepio bust. But I have to agree all of the exclusives and variants get old real quick. I have lost interest in both the GG busts and the MR mini sabers too.

It is a decent looking bust, but I'm tired of how GG is handling the SW line. I'm glad I got out of it a couple months ago.

I too am wondering what's up with making another C3PO bust. Looks the same as the one in gold just that the colour's different. Not sure what's the attractiveness of this new one?

The statement on the forbidden planet website is a little misleading it is gentle giants uk distributor who is getting 500 units and they will allocate them between all uk dealers who preordered this item.

I put my order in, i'm holding out for a Sideshow gold C3P0 statue (if they do him that is), this ep II bust will be a good addition.

There was a weathered variant of the 3po bust?
When was this one released? Any pics available?

What was the 'Weathered' C3PO bust...off-hand I can't think of it.

I did a little research and I was wrong. :o
For some reason I thought The 3PO from SDCC was a weathered bust but it was the Episode 2 bust. Duh! Hello! Its not gold w/ weathering its grey w/ weathering.
Anyway sorry for any confusion but it would be cool to have a ANH C - 3PO Weathered bust since we can't get enough of him. Im sure its on the way along with the Episode 1 and ROTJ version with one eye hanging out :D

thanks, i think that's a good price. cheaper than in the uk.

if i'm not wrong the edition size of 2500 is split in this way:

500 for UK (dunno which shop/s?)
500 for US (starwarsshop)
1500 for the exhibition in singapore.

That is the same info that I have seen, so that is correct.

Anyone noticed the Chrome C-3PO that slipped in under the radar? First went for $24.99 on Ebay...since then the only other I've seen went for $144 or so. Another MBNA 'Exclusive' to show up at SWS most likely.
