Star Wars Darth Vader MBNA Exclusive Mini Bust MBNA Exclusive Collectible Mini Bust
This smoked-chrome, limited-edition Darth Vader mini bust was available as an incentive to get people to open new MBNA Star Wars MasterCard accounts, as well as to just 100 card holders in exchange for 7,500 Galactic Credits. It was delayed endlessly and the program was considered by most Gentle Giant mini bust collectors to be...well, a bust. There were also 25 Artist Proofs for this piece, and many of them were sent to collectors who had complained about the way Gentle Giant handled their 2003 summer convention exclusive, the Clone Trooper Lieutenant.

Poll
Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practise of driving around all the nearby store stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
