Vader added today  8)

Obi-Wan & Boba Fett added too...

Man, I might try for a Fett.  That would be pretty sweet.

Hmm, diverging from the original 12 already with Fett.  So who loses their spot then?  Leia, Chewie or Death Squad Commander?  And why an ESB cardback rather than SW?

I have a feeling that once I see these in person at CV I won't be able to resist - especially with Fett there.

You may be VERY right.

I was able to preorder a Fett last week for $125...I hope this dude is able to get one because reading the forums sounds like this dude is hard to get >:(

I hope I can somehow manage to get Fett at an okay price. I'm really liking this line!

I got my 12" Fett at CV, very happy with it. I had to carry it on the plane as this thing is bloody huge!  ;D

Opened Fett today and he is sweet...really sweet.  I am pretty sure I will be choosy with this line, and stick to the original 13 and pick and choose the rest

I read somewhere that GG wanted to go mass retail on the line and I've also heard the regular non Con figures should be around $50-$60...a little easier to collect

This is another line I'm really tempted by, but probably can't really afford.  If the "regular" figures are indeed closer to $50 or $60, maybe I can swing a couple just for display....like a Han/Chewie or R2/3PO combo or something like that.  Really a neat idea though.
