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 think we've totally skipped Spring and gone straight to Summer. We've had 10-20 degrees higher temps than normal. Sucks.
Very cool! Visiting the National World War II Museum is on my bucket list. I graduated high school from NOLA, but the WWII Museum wasn't even a glimmer
The incomparable Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Looks like someone else will have to take the "Greatest Living Writer" title.
Thankfully these figures are all coming two per case – EE also has them as a set. I already got Dak back when he was released in TVC (when he had a "c"

I'm attending a conference in New Orleans next month for work. Before I accepted to go (yes, I had a choice) I asked the boss if we had some free time
Indeed! Praise be to Al Gore!
Patton 360 is good. My only complaint about the series was it rushed through late 1944 and the rest of the war too fast.

It was a good one. Tony is one paranoid dude. Working it way too hard. The lies will catch up with him.
Next week looks good with Woo (Wooo!!)
