Has any seen the photos of this toy? I'm actually pretty impressed with the overall look of it. Of course, most of the body looks like lawn-ornament quality plastic and the hip-joint area looks a bit... odd, but the helmet sculpt looks great. Plus the size of the soft-goods means that they hang from the figure in a much more realistic way.
This is definitely something that I might consider buying, but that $50 price tag is going to be a bit painful.
Now I'd actually be interested in seeing other characters made in this line, like a Stormtrooper, Boba Fett or even a TIE Pilot.
