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.
I've heard two "blue" songs that I like today, that I rarely hear over the airwaves: "Midnight Blue" by Lou Graham and "Electric
Found the Jedha revolt pack at my local Meijer this morning. This set makes me wish Hasblow didn't cheap out with the articulation. Would've been great
Ha! That's a good one. Great photography too, were it not for the wrist articulation I was buying it as full scale.
Spotted Sixshot, Voyager Optimus, and Voyager Megatron at Target yesterday. What a motley crew.
Megatron's stickers ruined that figure for
Target West LA had a single Transformers Titans Return Sixshot, Voyager Optimus Prime, and Voyager Megatron. I left 'em all.

I saw this pic on instagram. You microfig collectors should appreciate it.
Dang! Penguins are the only 200+ goal scoring team and have the 3rd-best record in the NHL and would have a 5-10 point lead over any of the other divisions,
Looking at the official photos vs the toy fair display, I'm not so sure that G2 Prime will look as bland in person. I realized that the black background
Why is the comic series for R1, which came out about 2 months ago, due out in another 2 months or so?
