Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

I'm definitely going to get this one, hope they give him the pauldron though. ;D

Btw anyone know how much SS points are worth? I have 240 points right now. :)

Thanks, so that means I'd have a discount of $12, not much, but it's something.

I'm glad SSC is doing another EU figure, maybe we'll get a Mara sometime in the future?

Can you use your points for pre-orders?

Does his big ass chair come with him or is will it be an add on accessory?

It sounds like the "with chair" version will be the Sideshow exclusive (and yes, at a much higher price point).  It will be similar to the way they did the "Toht with Polystone Ark" exclusive edition or "Belloq with Fertility Idol stand" exclusive edition sets they had.

Neat, I'll pass on this one, but if they do a ROTJ Palpatine with Throne I think I'd have to bite on that one.  :P

I think I read somewhere on the Sideshow FAQ's that you can, but I've never tried it  :P.

Can you pre-order him at Comic-Con?

If you can I'm going to when I go on Sunday.  :)

Wow seriously SS  :o??

I was expecting around $150 for the figure and chair, but I guess I was wrong. He also looks kind of plain since they didn't add the gold plates on his shoulders. If they add the plates I'll probably buy him, but right now he doesn't seem worth the money. Oh well... :-\
