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.
Some people have been buying the 2nd wave of Saga Legends and Movie heroes from overseas sellers (the ones who many think might be selling factory rejects)
Obi-Wan had made quite a lucrative career as a pornographer in his old age, and was actually looking forward to getting some material for his Force-sensitive
Darth Plagueis was back in stock earlier today on HTS and I managed to snag one.
I have seen virtually no episodes ever, and I haven't scanned this thread, but how long has Bail Organa been part of the show? Since the start, or added
That's right, because then Luke says, "... and he probably would've deterred me from hitting on her. I guess" right after it.
I got the Sephjet/Sarissa/Roan/Ponds set and it's quite cool. I love me some Geonosis Jedi, even if it means I'll have to reorganize the arena setup
I told the wife about this and her answer was, I got you covered! Gosh, I have a great wife.
I got some good news from Dan Laws yesterday. I'm #2 on the list and he's finishing up the one he's currently working on. Serg, how long did he take
Thanks for the info! I took advantage of this today. Couldn't pass up this good of a deal.
As late as 8 p.m., the schedule on the DVR said the finale was airing last night. Just have to wait a week. But next week's preview revealed nothing!
