    I ordered one. If I decide I don't want it, I'll just cancel, but right now it's something I really like/want.

    I like this just reminds of when movies actually amazed me at how they did certain things but CGI has eliminated that wonderment.

    I'm really liking Sideshow a lot.

    They are doing some really exceptional pieces and not all that are mainstream subjects, my hat is really off to them for taking the chances and giving the collectors some great items.

    Just saw the price. I seldom complain about prices but almost 300 bones?.

    Knocked my interest level down a peg or two.

    I like the direction Sideshow is headed but they need to work on those sweetspots a little.

    I have to agree with you on the price thing, with more and more for the collector to purchase it getting real hard to spread the cash around.

    Price thing is one thing, but the thing is 28" long and 14" high. That's HUGE. I think it's a fairly decent price. If someone made a garage kit of something like this at that scale it would probably cost you at least $100-150 without any finish work or paint. Plus with the exclusive, you get those really cool blueprints. I think it's a neat idea.

    The MBP model that was out years ago I think was the same price. $279 is not that bad. I sent in for a shipping quote. that might be the deal breaker for me.

    28" long? *, that pic doesn't really reveal the scale, does it? $300 doesn't sound that bad at all...

    Put it this way - that's just (approx) 4" shorter than the blade of an FX lightsaber... :love :love

    That is very cool...
    28" is huge...



    Man, Sideshow IS putting out some awesome stuff, ESPECIALLY that 1:1 Aliens bust, I keep going back to that page, hovering over the buy button saying "Eating Kleenex for a few months isn't all that bad..."

    FlexPay is the way, conveniently speading the total over 3 months.

    That way, the kleenex dinners can be washed down with beer. ;)

    Flex Pay sounds interesting indeed, may have to give it some serious thought...
    Mmmmm Kleenex and beer.....

    I always wanted a diorama of the shark on its tower on the underwater track, with the sinkable Orca floating next to it.

    Nice reference materials. And the shark itselve looks beautifully done, love to see a better side view of the head though.

    Here's a quick comparison page I made. Obviously, the angles do not line up exactly due to the limited reference photos available:

    I've been waiting for some quality Jaws products for years. This is a must buy for me and I'm glad to see that so many others are excited about it.

    I just re-watched Jaws last night with my boys. It was there first time and they loved it, the movie still works.. I was on the fence on this one, but after watching the movie again, I had to order it.

    First the Bob Burns King Kong, and now Jaws. Its gonna be an expensive second half of the year.

    That's ridiculously low. I'm glad they're making it in spite of the small amount of demand.
