Looks good.  Can't wait to see the Sidious figure.

I agree-looks pretty sharp. I'll be ready for my pre-order on the 6th :)

I will be on vacation that day, looks like a phone order for me. Any one else thinking it wont be a real 2-pack. I am thinking we will get one body with the two different heads, the cloak and the red robes.

No, I think it will be 2pack for $150.  Just joking.

I don't know. It's billed as a figures set so I think we'lll get 2 separate figures.

Here is an adjusted image to reveal a better glimspe of Sidious

I never looked at it that way.  I assumed a two pack since it reads "figure set" and assume Sideshow would realize many people would like to display both figures at the same time.  I hope it's not just one....that would really suck.  I tore the inside of Asajj's head while trying to remove it (and I was going slow) so I am very leery about popping heads on any figures now.

Okay, these are looking real good. I'm betting we get 2 complete figures for around $120, but I'm hoping they'll give a break to us big Sideshow fans by bringing the overall price (tax, S&H) to under $100. I hope they're done with the 30th anniversary high end packaging art and return to the original by this release. Acceessories should be few so one figure could be packaged where the accessories normally are which should be great for displaying.

Will there be an exclusive version? What will the freebie be? Maces hand, Yodas lightsaber, Holo Cody...?

I'm betting a Holo Anakin/Vader but a Sith Holocron would be cool too.

I think this will be a true two-figure pack and not just swappable head/outfits.  They did not advertise Asajj Ventress as two figures.

I think it's probably the Holo Anakin/Vader reporting from Mustafar.

This is one set I might actually pick up. Lots of cool stuff. But what's the difference between the 'arrest' hilt/saber and the 'senate duel' saber?

Very cool.  I can't see a difference between the sabers from the pictures given though.

I assume just the colors of the hilts?  Anyway, I will order this set.  Mainly for the Sidious.
