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.

Almost exactly the same forecast for us further south of you, TI, starting with today's 100 and ending with mid-90s by week's end.
Sorry this wasn't a SW song for post #1977 in this thread, but there was a certain Styx song that came on. The attached photo explains it, since I can't
Upper 90s but falling to mid-90s beginning tomorrow for the rest of the week. Upper 80s by the week end! Could Fall be flexing its muscles?

But the whole point of Kirk with a leg holster was to draw in non-fans who thought a space Western would be cool. You kind of complained about dad. But
Mexican singing icon Juan Gabriel has passed at 66. His song about losing his mother never fails to bring tears to my eyes. They are together now.
