Wow, what an unusual turn of events. This figure will have to be pricy just because it's got to have several types of exotic materials used for the complicated outfit, I suspect this one will have the look that justifies its pricetag. I doubt I'll be buying him only because I don't really have enough connection to the character, it was ok to buy a $10 figure but a $150-ish figure on a character I've only seen in ads for a game, I can't afford it. It'll be cool to see in person at Comic-Con though, no question.
Initially, he looks great. But there are so many other main movie characters sideshow could develop instead.
Part of me says you're right, still no Luke X-wing, no Han Hoth, no Leia Bespin escape/Hoth, no Biker Scout, no Jango Fett or probably other prequel jerks. But without new expressions of new ideas, the line would become stagnate. I feel like if they hadn't been so focused on clones the last little bit, there wouldn't be as much cause for such backlash.
Yes, the clone obsession along with the escalating prices have been a black eye on sideshow. My real concern is, who do you display him with? It would be nice if they did a two pack with a Sith solider or Shae Vizla, just to get the Old Republic line out there. Of course a $350 box set would scare people off...
Interesting point, what do you display him with? He's from an entirely different era, I hadn't thought about that. I just thought of him as a cool thing on his own, which I would assume is the point since TOR is not really taking off the way it was expected to, but having him standing around with crazy eyes and a lightsaber isn't all he could be. I say just stick him with some clones, there's plenty to go around.

Happy Birthday Beast.
Marathon running requires you to be in great condition!
I like to see people staying healthy.
I guess my Target got the next 6" wave in.

The funeral was on Monday and it was a nice one. The priest spoke in a way that indicated he actually knew Drew-- which he did. He was buried with the

Now if Hasbro would produce and ship some more cool toys I could go to the toy store to get, I'd actually be YOUNGER
Anyone else going to Joelanta this weekend?
The local running store currently has a picture at the top of their race calendar page from a 15K event in 2012. I'm the guy in orange next to the woman
Can't believe I hadn't posted this here before...

Arthur Chu's run ended in his 12th game; he ended up with a little under $300K won. He looked very frustrated in that last game.
