That would be the majority of us die hard Attakus supporters. Nothing like watching the value of your collectibles go into the toilet.

This is what happens.
I bet everything will go up as soon as Attakus brings series 5.

It takes so much f..... time for Attakus to give us more news.
As a die had Attakus fan i have to say this really sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's still a pretty sweet deal. It'd be like getting a Ferrari for 15k that needs four new tires and some transmission work.

Don't get me started about Ferrari.
After every drive it needs to go to a garage.

I have to agree with Darth Vader here.
If you look closely to the back of the helmet you can see somebody painted this one over.
Originally the red is very smooth and shiny.

So for me this statue would be a no deal.

Unless you have extra money to spend and would try to make a senate guard from it or something.

i saw those auctions and passed. The box/coa and a mint statue are all important to me, and I would guess a lot of folks here.

Yeah that guy was also selling a Stormtrooper with a missing holster. Of course he didn't advertise it that way and just stated that it had a couple of scuff marks on the side and back of the statue but any collector who is familiar with these pieces should know thats where the holster should have been. Hopefully nobody got burned on that.

IMO that Royal Guard wouldn't be worth the price of having it shipped to me. Talk about trashed, and good luck getting a replacement Force Pike.
