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 said this last week, for an away series. And I mean it at home, too! Late inning losses suck worse than any other kind of losses...
We were promised an Easter in the 90s but so far it's only in the high 70s, sunny and breezy. I'll take that Easter egg!
Mrs. TI7 and I worked around the house, ran a few errands, I got a hair cut, we walked the dogs and later went out to dinner. Also paid WAY TOO MUCH for
No, sir, I did not. It's been very active "up at the Lake" as we call it (that would be the Kern Valley/Lake Isabella area directly east of
$4.50/gal yesterday at the corner station. It's the most I've EVER paid for fuel.
I thought I felt a gun in my back...
I spent most of the day yesterday at work, then I was supposed to go see my coworker's band play last night at a bar in a neighboring town, but I forgot
Went to WonderCon. Enjoyed it way more than I expected to based on the last time I attended two years ago.
As long as the soul's chocolate-covered or caramel-centered, many people do just that. You could market "Creepy Peeps" marshmallows with this
BTW did you get the scope lenses?
I tried to make an eyeball Easter egg. It didn't turn out well.
So my daughter made a better one, and the reverse says, "You are creepy.
