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 found the Triggerhappy wave exactly once, a little while before Christmas, at the Redlands WM. Not even a hint of them since.
I've seen this series listed and it piqued my interest.
Picked up RO Rebel Dossier. A fast read with some insightful info into the movie.
Saw the Phasma/Finn two-packs at Meijer today. Definitely going to pass on it.
Saw one a regular price at my TRU this morning.
Bought one of the boxes at Target this morning. I will say, I'm impressed with the cards. Nice images. Like the attention to the minor characters like
In looking through my old DVR stuff, I didn't realize that Pittsburgh is Home: The Story of the Penguins was three hours, which made for a very detailed

Spectre is an awesome James Bond film. I don't have much time to watch the whole thing all the way through but as far as I've gotten incredible!
It was only $.06 cheaper down than street than at mile-away Costco, so I settled for $2.51 a gallon.
