 :o What can i say this is the best piece I have seen so far by sideshow.
Found the way they'd put the little ties on the arms very annoying and difficult to remove though as they have them actually in between pieces of the arm in the end I cut them something which I usually try not to do.
All the pictures just don't do it justice you have to actually see it in person
Leia Next month and then can't wait for Luke and Yoda.
I would perhaps like too see another character from the new trilogy to accompany Grevious.... Darth Maul or a Clone perhaps?
To be fair the List of people I'd like too see next is endless I just hope the rumor of them only releasing 8 in this line isn't true as theres so many more I want in this range.

Grievous with cape.




Damn, that looks nice with the cape Dale.  Does he still look as good in real life as he did at C3?  I remember my jaw hitting the floor when I saw it there.

Oh yeah, he looks good as the day I saw him at C3.

Funny, I did the same thing at C3 Jesse...

 :o

There are some awesome pics in this thread! I have one more Flex Payment, and my General will be on his way. This was the piece that made me decide to collect the Premium Format line.

I really wonder how many more characters SS will introduce in this scale?

I was very tempted to get this piece...was floored when I saw it at TF 05 and at C3. Just had a hard time justifying the $450 tag with two newborns.

It is a truly breathtaking piece. Kudos to Sideshow.

Might still keep my Leia 1/4 scale one...a lot more affordable price.

I just really hope the final product looks as good as the prototype. Don't want to be suprised as the new owners of the 12" Anakin were when they got their 12" figures in.  :-[

Congrats Gundam. :)

Regarding Grievous, I ended up cancelling my exclusive just a few days after they started to ship from SS. I decided that I wouldn't be displaying mine with the cape, so it should go to someone who really wanted the exclusive. I ended up getting my regular from DSC, and I love it!


   


Can't wait for Leia, Luke w/ Yoda, and hopefully we get a bunch more prequel characters for the PF SW line soon.
