The cane is cool, and it's the kind of thing that lets you know there are some fans working, at least in the sculpt area, on these figures...
The price didn't bother me as much because of these being new figures... I can certainly choke down $30+ on 3 new figures and a repack, all kind of obscure and uninteresting ones too but ones collectors like having, as opposed to $15 repainted Clones or Grievous with snap-on crap.
Those are the exclusives you feel jipped on. I even like the item, just hate the pricing there.
