I wonder if Luke represents a move into ESB figures for a while. If so, I'd obviously like to see Fett. But I'd be very curious about how a Hoth Han might look.

Snowtrooper? ;)

Well other than 3PO, R2 a Stormtrooper and chewbacca all of the main ANH charachters have been done.  I'd rather see a new charcter than another han etc. though.
Obviously this luke looks great but I do afterall already have a Luke and will probably be tempted to off load my tattoine Luke as I don't really see the need for 2 1/4 scale Lukes in my collection. The same would probably apply if they released a new Han etc. I'd only have the best of the 2 as these are very expensive pieces to be having 2 different variants of one charcter.
No doubt we'll see a Jedi Luke in the future (next year?)... exclusive will be the cape he wears in Jabbas Palace.... you heard it here first.

I now see Luke as more of an accessory piece to Yoda. It's a great way for SS to introduce Yoda to the line, and, at the same time, give us a memorable scene from the film.

I don't think we'll have to worry about another Han soon (unless they give us one from ROTJ with Wickett hugging his leg or something). ;)

I have 5 business days to reply with my new information to have it sent up here or I loose out on it. Yikes, the shipping on this plus any dutys is going to kill me.  :'(

Stay tuned folks.  :-\

If you're trying to have this sent to a U.S. address, you can contact your bank/credit card issuer to have a secondary delivery address added to your credit card.  Just be sure they understand it is a secondary address and they need to retain your primary address for other deliveries and billing.  I've done this with my Visa and have Jim/chuckles in Minneapolis for my U.S. shipping addy.  Few retailers would ship there without adding his address to my credit card. 

All it takes is a phone call and about 10 minutes.

Has anyone received their Grievous Exclusive version yet? Mine finally looks to be arriving tomorrow. That seemed to take quite a while.

Well Visa shot me down a few days ago for a secondary delivery address, something in the paperwork of my refinancing a short time ago so last night I emailed Sideshow & made an ajustment & today I recieved a confirmation email & tracking number.

I saw this statue at C3 & my jaw hit the floor so I could not pass this up, been a long time waiting & that wait will soon end.  8)

If there is any damage to it, I can send it directly back to Sideshow for a replacement without going the other route I was going to use.

Grievous should hopefully be here sometime next week.  8)

Jared, did yours arrive & if so what do you think of it?  :)
