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.
Now I'm watching all the James Bond movies what I think is my preferred chronological order.
I started with Casino Royale and Quantum of
The filmed version of that scene is making the rounds. Unkar looks in-progress and not at a finalized skin level. A quick online search should find you
Weird episode: first half was one of the funniest ones in a long time, but it turned a bit melancholy by the end. I really liked Asner's and Holbrook's
I have a photo of me with The Cup (in my Penguins gear, next to the Kings' trophy ), but I haven't ever seen a pro all-star game in person before.
It looks like I never got around to posting my rankings and now I'll have to think about it some more as the Sabine wave has some really good ones in
I have a feeling this year's SDCC debut for sale figure (like FO Stormie and Jyn the previous years) will be TFA Luke.
I cannot wait to find Triggerhappy, figure hasn't shown up online or on many store reports so far. :/
Oh huzzah, now we have the Chargers and their ever-rotating choice of new logo. Won't that be quite a pip. At least the Raiders are going to Vegas tho,
This one kind of got lost in the news shuffle of Snuka and Cernan's recent passing, but is worth mentioning before its completely forgotten about. Dick
The game is expensive, but the Fan Fair is only $20 a day and you get to stand in line for a picture with the Stanley Cup. I'm tempted...
