I really, really wanted the throne version until I saw how huge and out of proportion it was. And then I saw how huge and out of proportion the price tag was, too. No thanks, regular version for me!

Wow.  Cool figure, but I'm going to pass at those prices.  The $80 version is sort of tempting, but that'll be close to $100 when all is said and done.   :P

What is the chair made of for it to be that expensive gold?  It does look nice though.  Maybe if they ever get to an Emperor from ROTJ a throne chair will be included.

Polystone. Terrible idea - should have used plastic.

Does anybody know when this will be shipped? One of my sort of local toy stores is pretty good about getting Sideshow stuff and I may have to bite on this if they do get it.

4th Quarter '09.  Last time I got a SS figure that shipped in the 4th Quarter was the Old Ben Kenobi and it shipped shortly before Christmas.

Sideshow certainly does a better job than Hasbro every did, but sometimes their stuff is still a little lack luster. This is not one of those pieces. This was mighty impressive to look at in person.

Did anyone here order one?  I'm a little bummed that I didn't jump on it, but hoping it doesn't sell well and I can get it for less at some point.   :-\

I ordered the regular version. Will probably pick up a fan-made throne, later.

No, but there is a hobby shop in in Eagan that gets these in and so I'm hoping they may have it now so I can see it in person and.........
