      It is known that Sideshow gouges on shipping, so I wouldn't order anything from them, just on general principle.

      Based on my level of after-sale support, Timewalker really has gone above and beyond, just based on my one transaction with the GB figures themselves. And my set didn't even have any issues. Just the updates, and the fact that they gave me a coupon for letting them keep my money after the first delay and not causing a ruckus, seemed pretty "above and beyond".

      Timewalker's getting my PO for this. They let you flex pay. And don't gouge on shipping. I will likely use my $40 coupon on this...why not...

      If i did not have $400 in reward points at SS i would absolutely PO this from Timewalker. Great company and customer service. I already used my $40 coupon on Yondu

      Wow, love this thing, but that price is a stunner. It's the price of seven 1/6 figures. I was really hoping it was going to be closer to the price of five 1/6 figs.

      It's ginormous, super-detailed and a thing of beauty however.

      Ordered, will probably take 2 years for it to be released , that is only about 60 dollars a month, got to cut back on the $25 five guy burgers to 3x a week only

      I've ordered through popculture, $2500 over here, now thats crazy dollars. As much as I would've loved to order through Timewalker like by busters, the delivery and import tax would kill.
      For me its a must have, I've already got too many regrets on pieces I missed out on. Exhibit A - the premium format speeder bike, that still haunts me to this day!

      Requires a mad, mad amount of space as well.

      I keep coming back to looking at this thing. It looks great all lit up. But looking at pics and vids it looks like all the trim around the windows is a matte silver color when it appears from movie shots it should be chrome like the bumper, door handles, side mirrors etc.

      I really wish I could see production pics before committing to buy but I'm not sure that will be an option.

      Yeah, Blitzway have demonstrated a noticeable dropoff from proto to production. Not uncommon or terrible, but if you're shelling out that much money, it creates a bit of extra anxiety.

      Because there are people who are suckers for details and accuracy like myself. As a car scale model collector too, I will find every single important detail that has to be there. The HT DeLorean was/is a disappointment to be honest. To many missing details.

      I just took the pre-order plunge on this. It's not my most expensive 1/6 scale purchase, but it'll certainly be the biggest. I'm trying to wrap my head around how big the box will be so I can plan for space.

      Curious how many employees this company has! After the release of the GB they went silent again. Silence of the Lambs figure are looong due. Waiting for my Slime Blower Winston announcement
