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.
Friday I paid $2.349 after my 15 cent discount at Fred Meyer.
Yesterday... $2.42 was the price I paid. Now, I drove to Costco, sort-of far away. Oh, I believe, refueled yesterday.
Got hit with a case of the tireds about noon. After a couple laundry loads, out for errands (gas, recycling, stores, library), and then home, expecting
No good: missed FG and other special teams mishaps led to a Buckeyes loss, unhappily at Penn State. YSU can't get it done against the higher-ranked SD
Found the new Rogue One Black Series 6" at Burbank TRU yesterday. One of the employees really seemed excited to put the stuff out in the middle
That is an awesome display there! We all seem to have similar "problems" with what/where to do/show off our collectibles...
I picked up Scourge today.
I wasn't going to. I like the Classics one. But Target had some clearance TFA stuff, and I needed $13 to hit the
I had read that E.E. "Doc" Smith's "Lensmen" series from the 1930s was supposedly an influence not only on Star Wars (and Lucas) but
Those have always been overpriced, IMHO. Sad, really. But they are quality cards, so I guess you pay what you get for.
They sure like that 3-2 score; every one of the Pens' three wins so far ended that way, after tonight's Cup Final rematch against the Sharks.
