Awesome! Hopefully it has the cancelled headsculpt that the WM Droid Factory version was gonna come with. That just looked hilarious. ;D



Plus now I won't have to buy the overpriced Red Two X-Wing just to get the ladders. :)

Yeah, kind of a neat exclusive for SDCC - and at least they are throwing in an accessory like that to justify the likely higher price.

So you get smiling face xwing Luke for $20+. Oooo...goodie! :-\

Sorry but there isn't a chance in hell that I'm buying that. I can't even stand the $8+ for regular figures.

A couple of easy passes for me. Especially at $20 each.

Yeah, but the ****-eating grin will always remind you of the the $20+ you shelled out to get an over-priced exclusive... It's as if Luke is saying "Sucker!" instead of "Carrie!" as he descends from the X-Wing!

I donno about the Luke. If we're getting the ladder with the Wedge X-wing, looks like I can pass. I could use another Stormtrooper Commander though.

Ya - stoned Luke with ladder is an AWESOME exclusive for $20!  Can't wait.  FU Trooper is also a pretty big slap in the face as most of us had to jump through hoops to score the Gamestop version.

Was $20 a confirmed price point or are we all just cynically expecting it to be $20?

I think it's just cynically expecting it, but with good cause.  To be honest, the way everything is going up it seems, $20 may be a bit of a lowball.

I'm thinking I'll pass on both till I see them either on sale or can get the accessory cheap or something.  Honestly they're going to be insanely overpriced, and a smiling Luke means absolutely nothing to me, and the FU Stormtrooper I'd already written off a long time ago...  Sure I'd dig a ladder, but I'm not gonna bend on a $20+ figure for just a ladder accessory.  I'll pass on these.
