OK, I buy to open, and to display for dioramas.
The only Silver figure I own was the one I got at this years Comic Con breakfast, which was cool and special because it is part of my memory of getting to chat with Jeremy Bulloch, Daniel Logan, and sit down and have breakfast with them, Steve Sansweet, Lisa Stevens, Paul and Jeff from Hasbro, SirSteve, the staff from Galact.Hunter and Rebelscm, and it was pretty good food and an overall cool experience.
I didn't even try to buy the Jorg Sacul at Celebration 2 (not a silver figure, I know).
The R2's kind of attractive and I've never seen the Vader in person, but now a Clone Trooper?
When will they release a silver Jawa? How about a chrome JarJarBinks?
I mean there is no special occasion for at least 2 of these figures: you bought a bunch of junk from Toys R Us: congratulations.
I can do that without an exclusive figure. They could've done an exclusive on Mid-Nite Madness. That'd mark an occasion.
Overall, these don't impress me. They pretty much lack detailed painting and who knows if they are articulated, because I'm betting almost no one opens them.
So what is the point?
Let me know and I'll step aside and cheer on the silver Ewoks!
