Jon Stewart Trooper
« on: August 16, 2010, 04:09 AM »


That's a cool freebie for doing an interview, I must say.  :)  It's amazing how good the likeness to Stewart is, given how off some of the main characters from the films tend to be.   :-X

Great little item though.  It would be awesome to have a professional sculpt your likeness and see how accurate they could get it.

Am I the only one pissed that this isn't for sale?

That's pretty awesome. I wonder if he'll let me us it as a Battalion commander.

It's a better likeness than anything else I've seen them trawl out recently.

Plus I'm a big fan of the Daily Show.

Imagine what that thing would go for on eBay!

Pretty sweet and unexpected for this event.  I'm sure he'll make $100,000 on this collectible item.   :D  Ya no, pretty cool though...

It's a nice likeness, but better than the new Hoth Leia, Dengar, or Bespin Luke?  I'd disagree. 

I like Stewart too, but I wouldn't want to shell out money for it or see it take up any space in the line.

Yep.

Seconded.

"Thirded!" ;)

I dunno - if this was mass produced, I would probably add it to my collection. It definitely has that "one of a kind" appeal right now, so if they mass produced it, that appeal would definitely go away.

I only want it if they plan on doing them all - Colbert-trooper, Conan-trooper, Letterman-trooper, Regis-trooper, Oprah-trooper, etc.  No rest until all tv show hosts get their own trooper!

Didn't they already make an Oprah figure?

I could see Stewart auctioning this off for charity.  Else a limited exclusive thru the Daily Show's website to benefit a charity would be cool.
