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.
Well, none at the one Target I checked this first day. Yet.
Well, the promo for next week's seemed to say that THAT one will be the finale. And after yesterday's, I can see why. I expected a bomb of some kind,
A similar-sounding celeb: TV host and assassin Chuck Barris, of the “Gong Show" at 87.
And NBA owner Jerry Krause at 77.
I'm still having problems with pictures.
Fought a cold over the weekend and just crashed in my easy chair. Watched three horror movies off Netflix: the Rezort (the best of the three), Jeruzalem
Thank God that little b***h finally died a second time, and went out like a b***h again.

Same once again; and I even chose the best line (moved the fastest).
I've liked the past two weeks. The trophy episode had a few funny times and banners/plaques.
I still have 11 of the Sweet 16 left (Baylor, S.Carolina in the East; Gonzaga, W.Virginia, Arizona in the West; Kansas, Oregon in the Midwest; all 4 in
Couldn't find anything to watch on TV last night, so I started watching season 1 of Clone Wars on Netflix! Damn, I miss this show.
