That's where I got the case for my MOY. When I last talked to Philip, he said the prices he was quoted were a bit too high, and he might have to find someone else to do the cases. So, who knows when that will be.

The only cases I plan to get are to replace anyway are the older style saber cases, but the JTR and MOY cases I'll leave the same. :)

Here's an interesting feature that will be added to the Darth Vader and Obi-Wan statues:

"We would like to inform 'Star Wars' fans that the Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi Premium Format Figures will include both a power cord, as well as a battery function to control their electronic features. (Please note that the plug will be rated for United States wall outlets, therefore international collectors will need a plug adapter to utilize this feature.) Will it be battery power or plug power? You decide!"

Very cool, I must say.   8)

I like that option over batteries, but I never thought I'd need to get a surge protector for any statue I would own. ;) :D

Wow!!

2 big thumbs up to Sideshow.  Obviously they've been working hard on their facial sculpts, because Leia looks amazingly accurate.   8)

Now that's a great likeness. A big improvement over the others in the line, I'd say.

Is that EU underwear? I don't recall seeing panty lines like that in the movie.  ;)

I'm hoping so.  All these years I was hoping it was a thong.   :D

Wow, so the Sideshow exclusive version has interchangeable arms, one for the pose in the pic, the other to hold a stormtrooper blaster. Limited to 1,000 pieces.  8)

These things look incredible!  Do they put cloth clothing on these or are the 100% sculpted?

All of the clothing is made from cloth, or whatever material most closely matches the original costume. Luke's belt was made of leather and had metal fittings to it. These are really great if you're ok with static display pieces.

They are awesome pieces.  Thanks for the info, Jared.  I'd get these, but MR is taking all my lunch money these days.  :D
