Sideshow 12" Greedo and Cantina Environment
« on: February 12, 2010, 07:31 AM »
Greedo and Cantina

Looks good.  I'm down for the bounty hunter, but will be passing on the table.  Hopefully the price isn't up there with the troopers, Vader and the like and is priced more like the Imperial officers, Lando, etc.

Hmmmmmmmm.   I saw this one in the newsletter this week.  He looks good but I'm not sure if I'm going to pre-order or not.  I'm not going to be around when the priority pre-order comes around next week.

As cool as it is I probably won't order it.  I would love to but I am sure they will charge $150 for both Greedo and the little table at least.  Unfortunately with SS prices I need have to cut back to just figures I absolutely go nutty for.  Now if they ever release Hammerhead then I'll be all over that one.  For now I will just need to settle for the Hasbro Greedo.

I'll wait to see the cost, but I'm probably out on this one as well.

Are there pics of the cantina pieces anywhere?  I've only been able to see top half of Greedo thus far...

I rememeber when the line kicked off with Luke Jedi. . .at $49.99.

Now we're looking at $95?!

And $90 for a table, apple, and two chairs?

I'm with you.  I love these figs and have 20-30 of the earlier releases, but I just can't justify paying essentially twice what I used to on these.  The chairs and table accessory is terrific, but I'm not sure I'd buy it even at $50.

I'd love to have the Cantina accessories myself, but I think ultimately they could be customized cheaply as they are fairly simple shapes.

This is a line I really wanted to collect from the beginning (only have Bespin Han, Smuggler Han, and Princess Leia), but I couldn't keep up price-wise (while still collecting anything else) - and man I could never keep up now.  Hard to believe Greedo is going to run $90-95.  I realize there is probably more tooling, etc. going into an all new alien like this, but sheesh.  The figures still look great though (and environment pieces, even if over priced), and part of me wishes I could have afforded to keep up with the OT releases.  I had even hoped to get just a small collection of the main characters (Luke, Obi-Wan, Han, Leia, Chewie, Vader, 3PO/R2, Stormtrooper, etc.)...but even that was a bit much.  I may bite if/when they get to Chewie, but I'm sure that will be crazy expensive.  I think I'd literally have to collect only these and nothing else to keep up with this line.  How many do they put out in a given year these days?  Back on topic though, the Greedo does look nicely done - maybe not $95 nice, but nice.

At one point i was buying them all too but that stopped quickly. I passed on Greedo and the chairs. I have become very picky on which i get.

I skipped the environment and the exclusive version and just went for the regular edition.
