I'm a clone fanatic and based on the way these look I doubt I'll even get the clone.  Hate to be Mr Negative but these stink so bad they aren't even fun to look at online.

I guess these would make great gifts for the person on your list that is a SW fanatic.  They would look pretty cool on someone's desk.

You have to hand it to Hasbro and Lucasfilm for trying to get the SW name out there and making the brand last "forever."   :P

Will it work?  Time will tell.  I think it's overkill considering the movies are done and over with...maybe the TV show will revitalize the line but that's a ways off yet.

We finally get a good look at the Titanium Forged Figures, both in loose and carded form!  Both of these figures are poseable and have removable helmets, and also include a display stand.  These are expected to hit stores in March.

You know, I never expected these to look this good.

No, I did not either.  It's almost worth plunking $15 down for them.

I'm sure poseable means 3 points of articulation.

I too did not realize how awesome these would look.  There's no way I will be able to resist buying them if I see 'em in stores.  I think it's cool that Hasbro took a chance on something different.  To me $15 doesn't seem too expensive for what appears to be a very high quality collectible.  Can't wait to get my hands on these!

Funny, I was thinking just the opposite. 

$15 is WAY too much to spend on a 4" figure; die cast or not.

Wait, the Fett has a removeable helmet you say? That may be worth $15...

I hear ya Ruiner, but I guess I just regard these as something more than a simple 4" figure.  They strike me more as nice display pieces, and the addition of a display case alone seems to justify a little extra cost.  Plus, metal is obviously a lot more durable than plastic.  I dunno, a metal figure/statue in a nice display case seems like a good value for $15, but I admit it's hard to make a judgement until I actually see the thing in person.

On another subject, I dig your handle.  Was that inspired by the Nine Inch Nails song?

And I was worried Hasbro would run out of clever ways to charge us $15 for a 3 3/4" figure.

I personally have little desire for these.  Give me better deluxe figures with nice accessories instead.
