Real. I posted a news story on it a couple of hours ago.

It looks decent. I'll pick it up if I see it. I never saw the 2002 Holliday set though.

It's a Fan Club exclusive, going on sale in September.

It's nice, but doesn't really do it for me.

I think it's pretty cool, and hopefully I'll be able to pick one of them up.  I never did see the C-3P0/R2-D2 in any store by me, but I got one for Valentine's Day from my wife.  Boy, do I love her!   ;D

Only $8!?!?!?!?  Great... just great!  My wife paid about $30 for the one I have now.   :-\

Why do they have to make this an online exclusive?

I remember my dream now.

A Saint Patrick's Day Yoda figure would've been much better.  I sense a Valentine Leia & Pilgrim Luke fig coming real soon.....

You guys just gotta realize that these "gimmicks" aren't anything new. They are just McQuarrie concept sketches coming to life in the form of figures.

I like them, and I don't see what the big deal is? We sit through 7 different Kenobi's, 7 different Anakin's, 6 Jango's, 5 Mace's. It's a fun figure.

As for the online exclusive, I'd say their entire line is like an online exclusive, Robb.  :P

*Trying not to give a GNT-ish answer*

I'd say this would have faired as well as the other one in retail, if they made sure it saw a wider release than last years.

Eh, it's ok I guess.  You guys can have it though.  These and the silver-metallic figures don't do much for me.  I can't see myself really wanting these.  I may get them someday if I find them at a flea market 20 years from now.  They just are not up there on my list.
