Found this at a local collector shop today.  I am very impressed by the presentation.  So much so that I'm hesitant about opening it.

Yeah, I too saw one at my local comic shop. It was $60, and it took much self-control to not buy it.

I'd be ashamed to open such a nice thing, though. Somebody put a lot of work into that, and it'd almost feel criminal to open it (and this is from a guy who opens nearly everything.)

$60 is a pretty good price.

I got mine from Dark Shadow comics and I absolutely love it.  You have to open it because it is too nice to keep boxed.

Plus, he is real easy to put back in - no wire tires!!

I got suckered by this website which claims to have the "Exclusive" version in stock. I ordered one last week, thinking I had gotten a steal at $70... but when it showed up, it was the regular version. Not that I'm too shocked by it. But now I'm just pissed off about it. $70 + $10 shipping for the exclusive version would have been a good deal, but for the regular version, it kinda sucks. I think I'm gonna return it.

I think I'm gonna go for it, if it's still there. I already put myself on the Wait Lists for Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, and Vader, so I might already be into this line and not even know it.  ::)  :)

Bought that Luke at my local comic shop today. Hopefully they get the rest of the line, since I missed the preorders on everything Sideshow has offered thus far.

Pretty much just this:  :o

I'm hooked on this line now. I doubt they'll do stuff like armored characters, but if they continue to do humans and aliens, I'll buy what I can.

It makes me wonder if Hasbro could have done this type of work at a higher price point like the Ultimate Jango Fett. But I'm glad the ball isn't in Hasbro's court anymore and that the 12" line is in the hands of those who want to make it into the art form it deserves to be.

I knew you'd like it!   :D   And like I said before, he's real easy to put in/out of his packaging for those who have limited space and like to rotate things.

I gave all my old 12" Hasbro versions to my three year old - the Sideshows will be for me.

God I hope they hit Darth Vader, Boba and Storm/Clonetroopers.

Yeah, I am thinking about selling some Hasbro 12 inchers off just to fund a couple of these SS ones.  I know Vader, Maul, and the Emperor will be too hard for me to resist.  Among others of course.

I just got one off ebay for $74 shipped.  With shipping, that seems to be around the going rate right now.  I was bidding around $60-$64 on each auction I saw and got outbid on each one until acquiring this one.  I'm excited to get it.

Just wanted to give props to Jared on the excellent photos for the database.  Can't wait to get this figure from him.

Just received this yesterday from Jared and finally got a chance to open it and play with it a little.  Absolutely blown away by the presentation, quality and overall coolness.  I was a little late to the Sideshow party, but I'm glad I got on board with this line. 

Now bring on Anakin.
