Nice way to start off the Military line.  Of course, since each one is different, I have to buy all three.

ya these are cool i'm not into, the 12 inch figs, but i definately would be getting these if i didn't have OCD about the 4 inch line.  why can't habro be more like the side show line?  It'd be cool if the middle one was Rykrof Enloe, but oh well.

Definitely a cool start to the military part of the line.  Sideshow's work continues to impress, and I really wish I could afford it.  Seeing something like this (groups of three figures, $60 each) reminds me that there's just no way I can.  It sure does look nice though.  I wouldn't mind Hasbro taking a cue from this line as well, as far as just making each figure of the best quality - maybe limiting releases a little more, and focus in on making just what collectors want.  I realize the lines are very different, but there are some things that could really be taken from what Sideshow is doing.

I hate to say it but I'm officially trying to put $$$ away for these right now...  I want all 3 too.  This is gonna kill me but the military line is as good as mine.  I won't be doing the rest of the 12" line but I have to have the military line at this point.  Those are just too sweet and everything the 3.75" line should be (relatively speaking) in awesomeness.

Wasn't Leia the beginning of the Military?

I doubt if I will pick these up even though they are fantastic.  If I had all the main characters from the Endor scenes then I might be tempted but without Han, Luke and Leia (Sideshow versions anyways), there's no point.  I didn't know a thing about this military line so this whole post was quite a shock.  Is there going to be some kind of stormtrooper line??

I might snag them to get the uniforms and stick them on one of my Dragon figures, the Sideshow heads have always been a little off for me.  But $60 for a uniform set seems a bit steep.  I really want this part of the line to prosper though, so I will probably go ahead and snag them.  a proper 1:6 scale rebel rifle...how can you turn that down.

I'd like to have the main characters in their Endor gear too, but as I said the heads for Luke and Bespin Luke are not right to me.

Leia Boussh was the first in the Bounty Hunter line I think.

I would think this line would cover stormtroopers and clone troopers.  I think Sideshow is still working on how to make the armor.

I believe I heard once Sideshow got the 12" license, they would have six lines.  We now have:  Heros of the Rebellion, Order of the Jedi, the Sith, Scum and Villiany, and the Military.  Any guesses for the sixth one?  Also, am I remember correctly that they said six lines?

Expanded Universe?  It's the only one that Snowbunny Padme would fit in.

I don't think we'll see stormtroopers/clones from Sideshow directly.  They just announced that they will be distributing the RAH Medicom Clonetrooper - why spend the money on tooling if they can sell Medicom's version?

So far, I have not been impressed with their figure selection.  I've been waiting for classic iconic characters like Han Solo (ANH), Lando (ESB), Obi Wan (ANH), etc.

The line (to date) has been nothing but head swaps with new hands and some accessories.

This is news to me, but i don't know how i feel about it. I think that they are overpriced for generic characters. Seeing three of them worries me very much. If they plan on doing it with the Endor soldiers imagine how many different clone troopers they will do. I am undecided if i will buy these.

Actually as far as I remember the beard guy & the jacket gut appeared in the movie. Not so sure on the first one in the line-up though.
