Well I actually like the Emperor head bust thing.   I just wonder what they will be charging for it?

I like it, actually...  About what I expected, and so long as it's not really grossly overpriced, I'll get one...  If it's in the range of the "Shadow Scout" crap they dished last year, I'll buy it.  If it's $40, I doubt I do, and wait for one cheap later.

Hmmm... interesting. I have a feeling this set will be more impressive in the package to help hold the pieces in place as they were seen in the movie.

And I think that is the VOTC Vader, isn't it? Definitely a great figure, except for those stupid angle cut elbows.

If I still collected carded/boxed I may have picked this up. No thanks.

Not great but i will still get one.

Same for me. The Holo-head is impressive though.

Yep, I think this exclusive will definitely be a "Keep It in the Box" type of exclusive. I'll still buy two just so I can open one though.  ;D

Yeah, about what I expected from this as well, and I like it.  Plus, its been said a few times that it has "nearly the entire sequence" of dialog, and I kind of like that aspect of it as well.  Also, as others have mentioned, it will probably be packaged up all spiffy - making fools like me want an extra  ::).  I hope to pick one up though, as long as the price doesn't get too crazy.

The Holo Emperor set is pretty slick and is roughly what I was expecting.

The holo is a bit underscaled, but that was to be expected and is obviously not a dealbreaker. Just assume Vader dialed down the image resolution on his end or something.

Kinda neat, but is Vader trying to hug the Holo?

I have to agree. It's cool but I am underwhelmed on this one. Having Vader sit higher than the Emperor is throwing me off a bit. I will buy one but this is not a must have.

Agreed.  Hopefully the set will come with some sort of support to display the head "hovering" above Vader (when loose).

I had been hoping for a larger Palpatine head.  But then if Gentle Giant ever decides to do a holographic Darth Sidious mini-bust, it might make for a perfect stand-in for Palpy.

Agreed, a holo version by Gentle Giant would probably be better... but for now, this will do nicely.

This is a pass for me, not so excited about this.
