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.
Out of curiosity, did any SoCal Costcos get Metroplex? Haven't seen him here, and he's never been online. I know Costco actually considers it a good thing
I'll just take the Jedi Master Points from it, and get ALL that free mail-away swag!
I found this one pretty funny (the YVAN EHT NIOJ comment, Skinner's "dream sequences," all the "off the list" infractions). I really
After seeing a few alternate pics out there of loose Mara Jades, I ended up getting an order in on the second batch Amazon got from Hasbro, and that second
Got the TIE Interceptor on Amazon Lightning Deal for $30. This is really standard stuff, no surprises at all. One wing fits nicely, the other sags a little.
For once, I'm satisfied with which team won AR. Jason and Amy ran a good race. The ER docs just fell part during the last two legs, and I noticed Travis

Glad you got to see your family for the holiday.
It was a beast of a Thanksgiving, "only" 13 this year but I had to pitch in way
Possibly, but I think that issue delves as far as any IDW story has in regards to Soundwaves back story.
I knew Michigan St. had a legit D; it was their O that surprised me. Buckeyes came out flat (and kept the opening drive alive with some uncharacteristic
