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 like Air Raid. I passed on him many times because of the Shockwave Mold but picked him up on sale and was very glad I did. I currently have him fighting
Unfortunately, probably best known for this:
His nuttiness goes back to the (frankly, one of the worst damned comics ever, regardless of the surprisingly impressive creative talent) first issue,
I'm not a Furman true-believer, I guess. I think there should be more limitations on Transformers, disguise is part of their evolution, their very nature,
Because comic book Megatron, especially when written by Furman, is completely insane and kind of a douche. He rebuilt Ratchet into his transport, since
Maul looks awful, the Tatooine look has the big split in the middle plus the immobility of the arms and the odd expression and no droid control band;
Doctor Rock, Motorhead. Ended, now Rockaway Beach, The Ramones.
Picked up Generations Air Raid, who is clearly Fireflight, but also I don't care. Body does a good job pretending not to be Shockwave, the colors look
Exactly right, JabbaJohn, the move made this possible. And you're so right about Tennant's...

Don't have cable so I can't say with 100% certainty, but I'm pretty sure CN also aired episodes on...
Except didn't it air at night?
Well that's just fantastic...just in time for it to be canceled. Thanks Disney.
I'm glad that the series finally got some kind of recognition. And David Tennant's performance...

Nice list, we'll see what comes of it, obviously it's better than the awful wave 1.
