I just made 3 eBay buys, a buy at Mondo and a buy on here to complete my Mondo Star Wars collection with the exception of the Stout variants. Sanctuary Moon was the only one I tried for and failed. There were a couple of drops that I missed just because my cat had run away that week and I was pretty depressed over it. It took the Moss and Stout sets to make me realize I wanted a complete collection!

I don't feel like I need a Stout variant set, but I NEED a Stout Revenge of The Jedi!

Thanks schmoff. Appreciate the compliment! Curious... did you get the regular edition or the special edition with the 5 extra prints?

I got the limited, and a lot of it is hit and miss for me. I'm glad I got it for $250 off Amazon because I think it was WAY overpriced at $400. Production values are great, the prints are nice, but compared to the Dressing the Galaxy and Constructing A Galaxy limited's, this one isn't in the same league. I think the inclusion of the Jamie Wyeth piece was stretching it. Still, it did introduce me to a bunch of artists I'd never heard of, especially the Coleman's, with Nicholas' "To Be a Jedi" my favorite piece in the book.

ACME will be releasing some of the more the "popular" pieces as giclees for sure.

It really was a huge project. It was amazing going into the studio every week or two and seeing these originals in our boardroom. Some of them made me :drool: and some were just enormous in physical size/scope. As you might expect... Mr Lucas now owns many of them.
