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.
Who is Fred Meyer in what screening does he post under?
Nerve damage? I think I'm not aware of what happened.

Thanks for the link JT. I just bought mine for Decepticon army building. But I agree that I am uncomfortable with swindle. I might return them and try
Bruticus' matching feet are animation accurate. (As much as that's possible)
I think the Unite Warriors version looks great, pretty much
Oh yeah, oops. There are too many damn AT vehicles these days.
I like the questions so far! I've added a few of my own based on them.
When we asked them about female figures last July, this was their
Your arguments for the 5 Point of Articulation figures was that they would fit the budget-friendly kid market, and released the figures at a pricepoint
If you loved Swindle, you wouldn't buy this ugly piece of crap. You'd buy one that's properly painted, and isn't addicted to steroids.
There was an article not too long ago (I'll try to find it) that confirmed that Hasbro had designs, basic plot, and very little specifics, and Disney
Do you feel that you were being unfairly criticized by the whole #whereisrey movement on social media? It seems that there were plenty of Rey toys available
