I'll reitterate what Rob just said... Not in here. Take it to the Pit.
And for the record, Colbert, while a comedic personality, is politically charged too, so commenting on him in a toy thread is not appropriate at all from anyone... So that's also not acceptable. Kindly just keep it to the Pit... I don't care if you even start a thread about it there.
Nothing more of it after my post here though, would be appreciated.
As far as Pyre Vader w/Luke goes, and pricing...
$45, seriously? I don't bite on that. What was the cost of the floating Emporor head? I paid full price for him and actually really am glad I got that. It's one of my favs on the Impy shelf. I don't think Hasbro would do this for $45, especially since they're clearly only tooling the pyre it appears (unless they tweak his right arm to not have a hand). I could be wrong on that of course, I just paid $17 each for a whole bunch of rehash with little new to it.
As far as wanting a tree... CHEWIE, I love some of your ideas, but I think you're huffing paint if you think getting a tree would be a good accessory.
Can't you just put the two logs from the Endor UBP up on their ends? Instant trees! Seriously though, a big tree is about as far down on the list of big background scenery I'd like to have, as it can get. The pyre Vader's lying on burning because his Son is saying goodbye... That seems slightly more iconic and a "center piece" type deal. That's what I'd be looking for, for these "deluxe accessory" type sets, which let's face it, that's what we're basically looking at. A very deluxe accessory to a figure. One could argue that's sort of what the Yavin IV battlepack was.
