jealous of you Azog. I also wanted that bust but there are so many to come and I had to limit my choices :(

I will appreciate if you can post some pictures when arrived.

My son just about wet his pants when he saw the pictures of this bust. For some reason he is terrified of "Mr. Thing," as he calls him. This one won't be coming to my house.

In fact, I cancelled my order for the Maul bust for space and money reasons, so it looks like it will be a while before I finally unpack a Sideshow bust. If they give me a Jar-Jar then I'll make room for it, but I don't imagine that will be coming any time soon. I think that I can only have one 1:1 bust in my collection, and I haven't seen it yet...

Congrats to those about to receive the Thing bust! Get us some pics as soon as he arrives!

Anyone receive this bust so far??

I am still thinking to reserve it because it is only 150 pieces produced and I probably won't be able to find it later on if I want.

I am confused here :google

This is a great piece and I am happy for anyone who is getting it. I for one will not be getting any 1:1 scale busts simply due to space and money issue. :monkey2

@ Gambit: If you really like this piece than I would go ahead and buy it. I hesitated on buying the Wol. vs. Sabertooth Exclusive back when it came out, and now I can't find one for a reasonable price.

I think a lot of people are going to be kicking themselves for passing on this guy. Personally I think it has a lot more personality than the DF bust, although that one is fantastic.

lcummins, great pics thanks.

I just wish that the wait list would turn to be an order for me shortly. Though I have no hope because of the very low ES :monkey2

Yes

Today my wait list converted

the only problem is the hight taxes that I have to pay in Turkey for this

because of that I am now in a position to cancel General Griveous which I probably will

Guess it is the correct decision to choose thing bust over GG exclusive

Any comments will be appreciated

If you love Star Wars....keep the Exclusive Grievous. If you love rocks.....get the bust. In the future, I bet you can get the bust for a lower price because I don't see it going up in price in the future.

Also,IMO..THE EXCLUSIVE GRIEVOUS WILL ALWAYS KEEP HIS VALUE....I EASILY SEE THIS STATUE GOING FOR 1K ON EBAY IN A NEAR FUTURE.
