always remember ..." fools and their money are so separated " . The " keeping up with the jones " syndrome will happened and people will buy one to photograph just to say they have it. People are stupid at times.$2,300 is a joke. EFX's complete replica armor is going to be at this price or likely less. Why would anyone pay that much for a giant hollow figure, when you can get film accurate armor with helmet and a mannequin for that price or less?
Rex Monument was $1400. How the heck do they get to $2,300 for this?
I think GG is losing their marbles with pricing lately. The Fett Maquette, increasing prices on the 12" vintage and now this. I thought they claimed it was going to be a mass-market release similar to their other items in terms of price, edition size and availability at retailers. I can't see retailers stocking extras of these at such a high price point.
No reason to start the name calling. If you don't like it or can't afford it, don't knock the collectors who do and can. I'm not gritting it, too much for my blood, but I'm envious of those that do get this. If this were around $1000, I'd be getting one.I love how a few naive people were speculating this would be priced at $1000 or less.
I bet the production run for these is VERY small, because the number of fools paying $2300 for it are very limited.
Nope.Is the life size Stormtrooper going to be carded?
Should not be too bad, I am working on an article now after a chat with GG today with some more details. Will post soon.I would hate to see how big the packaging is going to be for this big boy.
It will be separate so if may be possible someone who plans to displays it without the blaster would sell it to help off-set the cost. Never know.I really would like to have just the blaster. I know that sound strange.
That's just your opinion and it's pretty rude to call collectors who are looking forward to this fools. For those of us that wanted this, we have known the price since SDCC when they said in the QnA it would be $1500-$2500 so it was no shock when it announced at $2300 with Free Shipping at GG's site.I bet the production run for these is VERY small, because the number of fools paying $2300 for it are very limited.
My guess is that they are looking at the dimensions and size that are on the GG sale sheets (6'x26"x4") and factoring that in.Hmmm if it is shipping with legs and arms not attached, then it should fit in a UPS-able box. But so many retailers are doing freight shipping for this. Very confusing.
