Due to the substantial amount of negative email we have received here at Rebelscum regarding the limited availability of the Gentle Giant Blue Clonetrooper bust, Philip Wise decided to speak with Gentle Giant's Marketing and Sales representative Eric Lyga. Philip questioned the rumors floating around about the possibility of an additional run. Eric's response was no. Eric let Philip know that increasing the supply of limited Clinetrooper busts would not be fair to those collectors who have already purchased one. He also mentioned that this was Gentle Giant's first ever convention exclusive and they specifically chose to produce a variant bust rather than a core character so that demand wouldn't be out of control. However they have been surprised by the demand for the product, and future plans for exclusives will reflect their lesson learned this year.
