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.
Advance about a month: all three of "my" teams are in 2nd- or 3rd-to-last place in their respective conferences. OSU and Pitt have 12 wins and
As long as it's about the same amount of time (or less) as Tarkin had in R1, I'd say maybe.
On a side note, does mentioning the film's title
Well, then Episode IX will be "Test Pattern." Or, "Toy Story IV: A New Franchise."
Yeah, I'm also rooting for "not the Patriots". "Not the Patriots" is my favorite team!

Good, good. Let us know if you go.
Super not feeling this for the moment. The movies now go Return of the Jedi, The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi? That's a mixed message at best. Might as
TLJ. I like it, but wasn't yours was the first TLJ, JJL?
StarWars.com revealed the title of Episode VIII, and it's: THE LAST JEDI.
The poster is in the same style of the first TFA teaser poster,
It's also on the 3D Blu-ray. I've only seen the commentary from that set, so I need to pick up the slack.
If the Pens can play all their games at home, they'll breeze to another Cup. Playing on the road? Well... (actually, they're NOT playing too well there).
