Me to.  Of all the Clonetrooper designs to make into a 12 incher this one has to be near the bottom of the pile you would think.

I'm not a 12" figure collector, but it is amazing to me how good these figures look in their "specially lighted" loose shots.  Not quite as spiffy packaged though from the way it looks.  At least there will be something new for 12" collectors this year though, seems like it has been awhile.

Darth Sidious looks pretty weak, but Grievous looks incredible.  It could very well be the first 12" figure I've ever bought.

Hasbro once again gives us a daily update, today is the 12” Ultimate Villain Darth Vader

Now this one is cool, the changing of Anakin Skywalker into Darth Vader.  8)

I stand corrected, there will be at least 2 12" figures I buy this year. 

Any guesses as to how much this bad boy is going to set up back?  I'd guess $60CDN, considering the OTC 12" were $40CDN.

(What did you guys pay in US $ for the OTC 12"?)

From the Hasbro Toy Fair Press Release... Approximate Retail Price: $49.99 (in the USA).  I'd expect a bit more at the e-tailers, but should be close to $50 at TRU/Target/Wally.

What did we pay for the 100th Luke up here? I think it was just over the $60. CDN mark with taxes.

If US price is $50, then I wouldn't be surprised to see it at $70 up here.   :'( 
At that price, I may have to have second throughts.

As for 100th Luke, I can't quite remember, but I think it may have been $50CDN + tax, something like that.  But since this is Darth Vader, I'm sure he'll command more than that.  Of course, I'd like to be wrong about that.

Wow, I'm surprised they only went for $20 to $30 a piece.  They look great, and people usually get excited to be the first to have something, increasing the bid values.
