I have my Leia but I'm in canada.  Man I can't wait to get this fett.  I wonder when or if they'll do troopers.  I would love to see a stormtrooper, biker scout, sandtrooper and snowtrooper oh and clones.  But I'm guessing they'll only be in 12" format if were lucky.

For those of you that have received it, what's your opinion on the Leia statue?  I had preordered it, but cancelled before it was shipped.  How do the eyelashes look?

Leia looks incredible. I'm looking at getting the other ones now. After getting Leia, I'm hooked.

I'm pretty sure they'll do at least one OTC Trooper and one type of Clone.
I'm guessing we'll see a Stormie (Exclusive could be sandtrooper accsesories :D ) and an Ep2 style clone eventually.

Just recieved word that my Leia will be here on Friday, I wasn't to sure wether or not to bother with this one but after alot of people have said it looks alot better in person I've decided to go for it. I've got my Grievous and Obi-wan on display in the store at the minute as I use the ones I buy for myself as display peices rather than unboxing other stock.
I'll probably take Obi-Wan home now and display my Leia in the store.

 :o I'm glad i didnt cancell.
I think this one will be big on the secondary market in a few months time with the edition size being halved compared to the others.
Looks a hell of alot better than it does in photos really is a fantastic peice.
I decided to leave Obi-wan in the store as I don't have a shelf wide enough for the base at the minute and as I'm moving in a couple of months theres no point in me putting up another shelf for it.
Looks brilliant displayed with Luke and Han!

What a great pic!  I'd love to get hands on the Han and Leia statues someday.  Call me very jealous.  ;)

So, are these things pretty nice? Are they sturdy? I ordered the Dagobah Luke/Yoda, my first-ever high collectible. Hope it's worth it!

You won't regret it.  I've got 2 statues from Sideshow and they are simply amazing.  I really like their use of mixed media type of statue - the "real" clothing adds a lot to the quality.

That's a big selling point for me. It's more interesting to me than a regular sculpture.

Exactly my thought.  I think the only thing they could possibly improve on with these statues is to add poseability.  However, at that size I think they would become quite unstable and impossibly expensive.  I guess that's why I also love the 12" figures.  ;)

I personally love those PF format figs (although I don't own any) especially the Darth and Obi Wan. I'd love to add a few to a collection, but when it comes down to it...these things are huge and I don't have the extra space right now...I've seen them all (Luke, Han, Darth, Ben, Leia, & Grevious) at a comic shop on display and I was amazed at the sculpts (although disappointed with Han's and I don't know why).

Really? Hans one of my favourites. I own them all so far but havent the room for Obi-Wan and Grevious so there on display in my store at the minute.
Oh and I managed to squeeze Vader onto my sideshow shelf :D
