I expect a $250 pricetag on these.

Hmmmm. I'll be at the show, so I might be interested. It'll depend on whether they're sold separately. I'd really like the Han but the Luke looks like ****.

Han is okay, Luke looks like one of Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes extras. Larger photo might be nice. I might pre-order, but with Han in Carbonite, Darth Vader, and Lando coming relatively soon... I might have to say pass.

You can check out a closer look at the Han & Luke 2-Pk in the May 5th Edition Of Sideshow TV from Sideshow.

Download the video episode here.

Both come with the standard Stormtrooper blasters w/folding stock, the helmets are detailed on the inside & do not fit the heads. They are made to hold in the hands for display. Luke also has a different belt than the Stormtrooper that holds the comlink to contact 3PO & on the back is a grappling hook, not 1 but 2. Closed & opened depending on how you display.

So far I likey.  8)

I'm hoping for a $150-200 range. If it's over $200, I'm out.

The 1st to hit the bay.

SDCC 2009 Star Wars 12" Luke Han Stormtrooper

I will laugh if SS decides to put say a $225 price point on this set.

I haven't been able to pick up many of the Sideshow 12" figures simply due to the price, but I have gotten the Han Solos that have been made so far, so this set is tempting.  I'm not crazy about the Luke likeness necessarily either, and I'm afraid we're probably looking at at least a $200 set here, which would probably price me out of it.  I really like this line, but like some of the other higher end stuff, it would have to be all I collect for me to have any hopes of keeping up.  Still kind of a nifty set though.

I actually like the Luke likeness myself.  Nobody can ever nail Hamill's likeness it seems.  It's close enought for me.  I just wish SS with put a bit more expression on the Luke faces.  They always make him a bit stoned or out of it.  The Han likeness makes this an almost immediate buy for me.  However, it will all come down to the price of couse.  I can see them charging at least $200.  The regular stomtrooper was $90.  This will be an exclusive with 2 detailed helmets and it's Han and Luke.  I can't see them going below $200.

I know, wishful thinking on my part. Unfortunately, it appears I may not be able to access the internet during the preorder period. I'm kind of bummed, but also kind of thankful I won't drop $200+ on more Sideshow.  :D
