Star Wars Maquettes

I don't know if anyone has seen them, but these 6 inch high statues by Gentle Giant Studios are very nice! They are based on the look and feel of the Video game. The heads are removable and interchangable.

The Darth Vader and Stormtrooper ones are being shipped now, but are limited to 1000 pieces each and were sold out very quickly when they went on sale. I got mine a couple of days ago, but they have been delayed a long time as I ordered them in October 2007! I was happy when I looked at the number on Darth though as it was 11 of 1000! I think the first ten would probably be held back or given as prizes, so it might be the lowest number sent out normally! (The Stormie is number 161 if you care!)

The 'Blackhole' Stormtrooper was limited to only 500 pieces and was only available from one Star Wars event in Japan. I got mine from ebay a last month. They are already selling for silly money on ebay, so Iam glad I got two at the time when they were cheap :)

The Boba Fett one is still on pre-order and a few more are going to be made than the others as they are limited to 1500. There are not all sold out yet and you can order theme here.

I havn't opened mine yet, still deciding whether to or not :) but if I do I will post again with more pictures. I am really interested to see what kind of scale the plate they are standing on is though, so I might have to 'bite the bullet' and open them! Also, randomly inserted in the boxes are an extra 'chase' head of Anakin for Darth or Han for the Stormie, so I want to see if I have one. I have no idea how many of the 1000 contains them, and havn't even seen any pictures of them yet!
