Wow.  They're going to the Shadow scheme already?  It makes me think that they're tooling budget might be really stretched thin.  This set LOOKS cool, but the cynic in me sees this for what it is:  a repaint set that's being pitched as a cool army building exclusive.

Less than a year in and they've used the Sandtrooper sculpt FOUR times, The speeder bike twice, the Clone Trooper twice, and Fett twice.  They're clearly looking to squeeze as much margin out of this line as possible.

This doesn't look as good as the Luke to me... something about it looks... under-detailed?

I'm surprised they're going so big with this line so quickly... I mean, there's only about 15 figures in existence but they've done Jabba, a Speeder Bike, and now these.

But hey... looks awesome.

Actually, 6" prices are going to go up a couple dollars in the next waves.

Someone else said that recently...  did I miss a memo?  Why does everyone think the price is going up?

If anything the price needs to go down a few dollars.  Neca makes a better product at a lower price point so far.

Meanwhile, every 6" figure other than Fett and the Stormtrooper has been available on Amazon for far less - the first wave was as low as $9.99 around the holidays.

At this very moment:
Luke is $13.49
Artoo is $15.79
Maul is $15.79
Han is $13.30
Obi-Wan is $13.49
Greedo is $12.51
Leia is $16.69

Most of those are Prime too.

They are literally going to sell tens of these.

I went ahead and preordered just in case.... if I find one in a store, I'll just cancel it.

Is that today or do the exclusives typically show up later or after the convention?  I didn't manage to get the Fett last time and can't remember when it briefly showed up.

Seriously?  I didn't find the Sandtrooper until like 6 weeks ago.

Other than Mosep Binneed I'm underwhelmed.

Where is Sim Aloo!?!

If you look at completed auction for loose ones, they generally sell right around $170 - $175.  This one's at $177 with 20 minutes to go.  It probably won't move much higher if it does at all.

Ooh, I like that one.  Looks great.

Can't have this discussion without pictures!

As much as the idea of collecting SW into my 40's strikes me as a bad idea, I'm going to play it by ear and probably just go with it - if the 3 3/4" line stays alive and consistent.
