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.
Happy Birthday Sir!
As a heads up – if you're watching multiple episodes in a row, Netflix automatically skips the intro; normally that's fine for other shows, but
Pello Scrambas sounds like the egg-based breakfast dish Brock Starsher eats before starting his busy day in the porno industry.
Anyone gotten Generations Armada Starscream?
Because this figure is pretty darned glorious. The gimmick in the shoulder cannons is the
Fantastic movie, never saw the twist coming at the end but thought it was the perfect way to have it end.
Started reading the Guardians of the Galaxy comic, the '08 version. Really liking the story so far and learning about these characters since the movie
I moved to Florida back in December and haven't regretted my decision yet. Supposed to be in the 80s this weekend, yet again. :-D
Currently enjoying the WWE Network on my Apple TV.

Pretty good season so far...glad there's not redemption island and all new characters. Don't like the bald cop much, hopefully
Got the Ammonites, Starscream, and Scoop today. Only opened the Ammonites so far. They're sort of a mixed bag. Lots of pieces that like to pop off mid-transformation.
