I'll keep an eye out but I don't remember seeing one at any retailer I frequent.

I picked up the Godfather's last one and the paint job rocks! What made me jump on the boat in time was Azogs Gallery.

You know, on Statue Forum someone found some on Hot Movie Props website (hotmovieprops.com) a couple of days ago at MSRP. And I found one on an online retailer about a week ago for MSRP.

I'm not sure what that means, but at some retailers, they still seem to be dribbling out. So you might keep checking, but I agree, this one was much harder to find than I thought.

Good Luck.

I don't think you should feel bad about it, I mean the edition size was 4,500. Who knew that at that size, you wouldn't be able to find one shortly after release? The GG busts usually hang around my LCS for weeks, if not months. I didn't think ole' Palpatine would be different, but I put in my pre order for Maul anyway. Although his edition side will probably be a lot larger. Double, at least.

My comic book shop still has one at 50 bucks... last I looked.. (last Friday)

(352) 331-3252 They are local in Gainesville, and I'm not sure that they will ship. But they might hold it for you, long enough for me to maybe pcik it up for you and ship it out to ya. And if not, just ask if they have it in stock and just send me up there with a PayPal advance. I'll grab it for you no problem, if you want to go through all that for it.... :rolleyes:

The store is Mega Comics and Games... btw... very cool shop.

Yeah, they stay open daily until 7 or 8.... The owners are great guys.. I have a file there and they pull my comics for me. And they know me and the busts.. I've actually had my eye on that Palps for a while, but never had the cash. I'll be happy to see it go to someone who deserves it and wants it as bad as I do... :lol

No, no website for them... they are pretty low key. But just keep me informed... I hope they still have it!

I am currently bidding 2 busts from UK and will bid one more from UK by tomorrow. I hope I might grab one at least
I feel so stupid not to buy one when they were selling for 40 $ in ebay
