Sideshow 12" Admiral Piett
« on: December 18, 2008, 10:44 PM »
Well the next one up for pre-order soon is Admiral Piett.  I am kind of on the fence about ordering him.  It would be nice but need to fill some past holes first.

Anyone else think they'll sneak out the preorder on us today?  While Piett isn't the most exciting figure, at least it isn't another clone, Han, Luke, etc.  Also, he is a figure that was never covered by Hasbro.  Still, I would really love to see them tackle Hammerhead.

Nope, not going there with him. Yeah he looks nice but I have limited myself to what I want.

Pass.  Just doesn't fit my collecting style.

Midley tempting, but not a difficult pass at those prices.

Would look nice next to the Vader, but it's a pass for me as well.

Cool that they're making this figure, and it looks great, but since I've only gotten one sideshow doll, this is on the pass list for me as well.

Actually the cloth one looks really accurate, but the plastic one is attrocious looking.  It's about 3x too high on the front there.  Blech.  The cloth is much, much, much better and accurate.

A bit surprising that they snuck this one on us on the eve of the Sandtrooper preorder.

I see a great effort in the jacket detail for the badge and the cylinders on the chest. Sideshow is in transit to launch a realistic death star trooper.

Very nice action figure.
