New Q&A with GG Ltd!
The team from Gentle Giant Ltd. was again kind enough to answer a bunch of questions our members had. They also let us know a few tidbits that have not been announced beforehand! Some things that were answered were:
With the low editions (like for 4-LOM) and some other upcoming busts, does GG still guarantee the preorders for their PG Members?
When is the Magma Trooper shipping?
When is a new image for the awesome Bantha coming? Would love to see the base choice as well as the other Tusken!
Can you give us more info about the 10/1 Collection of the Year?
Do you plan to be at Star Wars Celebration 5 and if so, any exclusives you can let us know about?
All these questions, and many more, can be read by clicking here or the image below (please note a free forum account will be needed to view the boards)

Price Guides August Update!!
Our Price Guides have been updated for the month of May. There has been a decent amount of fluctuation from the last update. There have been some great deals on many items for those that have been keeping a watch on the secondary market! On the other hand, some of the harder to find items (even from retired lines) are holding their value or increasing it.
For readers not familiar with our Guides, we process them manually to ensure they are accurate. The Price Guide team looks at completed ebay auctions, ebay stores, online retailers who sell in the secondary market, yahoo auctions, popular message board sale sections, as well as other places on the web to determine the true value of each piece on the secondary market. It is both a useful tool if you are looking to fill a hole in your collection, or if you have the misfortune of having to part with one of your pieces and need to have an idea what you can expect it to sell for. Our very popular Image Guides are also integrated into the section.
At the end of June, Science of the Movies on Discovery Channel toured Gentle Giant Studios and showed a "behind the scenes" view of how some of our favorite collectibles get made, you can now check out the entire segment below (in two parts):
THE GREAT STAR WARS FAN POLL!
Welcome to the Great Star Wars Fan Pollónot just one, but five different fan polls that will affect the future of some of your favorite Star Wars collectibles lines, as seen in ToyFare #146. Some of these polls will let companies know what fans are most interested in seeing; some of them will result in an actual Fanís Choice figure being made.
