The releases are really moving at full clip now. I'm looking forward to a new announcement soon. The 12" line has really taken focus away from these, unfortunately.

You're right, things have been quiet since the PF Leia announcement.  They're supposed to be announcing the next 12" figure tonight, then it would be great to hear what they're going to do next for this line...

Looking good kirk. What AT-AT is that in the middle?

The miniatures game thing, not really into that stuff myself but I liked the look of it. Hoping to add Vader soon, just go to find one at a reasonable price.

 :P

OUCH!!

SideShow sure is raking in the(my) dough! My PF Han & Vader arrive tommorrow, and Obi Wan exclusive is shipping soon?  Yay!  8) (plus 12" Luke is now paid for too)

 I am really hoping they will offer Flexpay for Grievous, he was really pricey. I was able to use that payment option on the second Vader I bought. It was very convenient,  2 monthly payments were more manageable for my budget.

My Vader arrives on Tuesday, I'll post pics of Luke Han and Vader displayed together when it arrives.

 >:(

My Vader needs to go back to SideShow, it sucks. It looks like it was handled before the paint was dry, and there is a chip in the mouthpiece. There is a fingerprint in the paint on the eye lens, and the lightsaber is broken off in the hilt.

What a let down! And I dread packing Vader back up to be shipped to SideShow. :-[

I liked Han much better, no problems with him.

It looks like Vader is going to have someone to duel atop my desk this evening.  8)

Great news Jared, mine arrives Monday according to FedEx.  Hoping for a low number again. 

BTW, I don't recall, but does Obi's lightsaber ignite?  I presume it does, otherwise the notion of a duel is somewhat spoiled.. :-\

Yes, Obi-Wan's saber does light up!  8)  Check out these pics at chinese-starwars.com.



Unfortunately, I've yet to hear from Sideshow or FedEx about my Obi-Wan shipping yet.  :-\

Thanks Jesse, I expected as much, but glad for the confirmation. 

I'd like to rig a setup in my room in the new house when you open the door to the room those go on and a small spotlight above is shining on them before you turn on the room lights, so they're the first items you see. 

I was making good progress on my Visa, but between this and a case or two from Newforce it's not a good thing :-\  Still uncertain what to do with Leia ;)

Very, very cool idea.  My wife and I made an offer on a new house which just happens to have a room set aside for my SW stuff. :D  I'm hoping to buy a glass display shelf to put in the middle of the room and shine a light on it to spotlight them.  Perhaps I could put that light on a separate switch to mimic what you mentioned.  8)
