So you counted the Endor troper as three? That's neglible. As well, Jabba (to me) is a statue - not a $50 figure.
Again, I said that we haven't seen any 'classic' OT characters. By classic, I mean core characters in their memorable garb. Luke in Tatooine garb, Han in his smuggler outfit, Old Ben with his jedi robes - figures like that.
And yes, I am voting with my dollars (or should I say, not voting). /displaying?
Eh, I was on the fence about how to categorize the Endor Troopers... probaby should have just counted them as 1... 6.5/8 ratio .... I also didn't count the multiple Anakin's... I only got the Vader version (THAT was a cheapass move on SSC's part for sure!)
Luke, Han, Old Ben (I'd LOVE an old Ben) are still going to be using the same body/mold as all the others. As for Jabba- exactly what do you plan on doing (figurish) with your Sideshow pieces besides posing/displaying? I agree he might not have been the best choice of character to go for but I think they did an awesome job. I've always been partial to the non-SE Cantina/Jabba's scene, so for at this THIS collector, I'm quite happy with the choices. I don't know if SideShow is shying away from OT Classic figures that have been done decently by Hasblo (how many lukes and Ben Kenobi's do we have?) but it's a possibility. I DO hope that they will up the OT characters in '07 though.... with Asajj, Maul, and SnowBunny Padme, we're SO due for some OT fixes. I want to see a Chewie (all other 12" Chewie's are terrible!), Leia in Bespin Gown, Old Ben (but later down the line), Fett (although the Electronic Fett is pretty sweet already), Vader (again, the electronic version w/removable helmet is cool) and the Max Rebo Band to go with my Jabba's throne room. For one reason or another, I'm hooked on this line... and my poor wallet too!
That's the greatest thing about collecting... everyone has different levels and preferences... I'm even thinking of shelling out $$$$$$$ for the Collectors Fleet Super Star Destroyer I passed up for 16 bucks in Austin in 99. I'm an addict... is there any help out there?
