But how many of these will sell?
I just finished reading the 'what killed the deluxe' thread, come in here and go, hmm, Deluxe Ackbar? Not bloody likely I'd buy it and I buy damn near everything.
The mains would sell - 3PO, R2, Chewie. Lando's a stretch, IMO but could be good. Stormie's could work as could Clonetroopers. Any imperial with a helmet should sell well, so the DSG, Tie pilot, AT_AT driver (with cockpit?) would probably do well. But so many of these guys don't lend themselves to either the sexy aspect (Leia, Padme) or the aggressive aspect (all the male characters). Perhaps some of the female Jedi would lend themselves to unleashed figures, but how would they sell.
Actually, how is the line in general selling? They are quite nice, but the price point is higher than comparable McFarlane figs (due nod to Carrie for pointing out the comparison). It's tough for me to comment, as I've only ever seen Jango and Maul at retail. Padme, Anakin and Vader I had through trades, but arrived here on clearance and the most recent 4 have never been seen in Canuckada, to the best of my knowledge (outside of comic shops).
