EE's Exclusive Vader Bust
« on: February 18, 2006, 09:33 AM »
According to the latest e-mail from Entertainment Earth, their next exclusive is due to be released on Feb 28th at 12PM (noon) Pacific Time.  The unnamed editor is claiming it will be "quite limited", but there's no mention of what it actually is.

Okay. ??? Do we know if it's even a 3 3/4" item?

I say Kir Kanos, too.  Though the Pawlus trooper is a possibility...  ;)

'quite limited'   ::)

Who believes this? Define quite limited. What like 50000-100000? Well, I don't consider that quite limited, but if it 30000 or less and they charge 20$ and it's a 3 and 3/4" fig then I'd go with quite limited.

I just don't see EE distributing/selling anything 'quite limited'
(in my definition of it) unless they raised the price quite a bit.

Come on EE, surprise me.. make it an ARC with the quad shoulder mount cannon.( although I agree it will be Kanos)

I bet it's something like a BARC trooper or Galactic Marine.

I don't know what it is, I just hope it doesn't suck - either choice-wise or cost-wise.   :-\

Odds are the best you can hope for is half that  :-\

Personally, I hope it does suck (at least choice-wise).  I hate it when cool figures are wasted as expensive, harder to find figures (Wedge Antilles).  Make it a POTF2 Greedo repaint and I'll be a happy camper  :P
Granted, I'm not a completist and I mostly open my figures, so passing on overpriced exclusives is pretty easy. 

I assume it will be Kir Kanos too, but since these figures are usually straight repaints, how will Kir Kanos work out? Will they take a ROTS #23 Royal Guard, tweak his robes and give him a different paint scheme underneath?  Removable helmet? New weapon? None of these?
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Actually, if that were the case if they were in 4-pks, that could be ok... if they are new sculpts being used, or some really good kitbashing.  I could see them doing repainted Scout Troopers for BARCs or repainted Snowtroopers for Galactic Marines... don't know how crazy I am about them being simple repaints though.

But haven't EE's exclusives basically been repaints anyway so far?  We've gotten the Clone 4-pk (basically rehashed repaints) and the Droids (just repaints).

 :P

Whatever it is, I know it will be grossly overpriced.
