Even without reading all of the hubbub over "there", I have to wholeheartedly agree with Jesse.  I don't understand all the negativity either when someone is getting something they want, and another group doesn't particularly care for it.  I think we can all say there are figures or even groups of figures (or other products) that come out in this line that we don't particularly care for, but that's just part of a line this big.  Like everyone has always said, if you don't like it, don't buy it.  I don't understand why we can't just be happy for each other when someone gets what they want.  Its a hobby, and it would be great if everyone was together on things and just enjoying the hobby - but those days seem gone a bit.  Like I've said before, I kind of miss the simpler, early POTF2 days.  I know there was probably - and always will be - complaining and moaning about things, but I think back then people were more happy just to have a Star Wars line again, instead of complaining about individual figures they do or don't want so much.

JJ, I see where you're coming from. And quickly scanning through the RS thread I noticed an interesting trend. Most people who were complaining about ICMG being made were not part of the BHC and the online community in general way back when Scott started this all off. So they obviously don't appreciate the history behind the whole deal, well it's their loss I guess.

I campaigned for ICMG a little over the years. He's not a huge priority to me, but he is quite a novelty.

Finally getting him made is not just havinga new figure, but also a small statement about  the collective voice of the consumer. Had the petition and subsequent followings never occured, I'm pretty sure, ICMG would never have been made.

I'll gladly buy this figure, in fact two to have one carded/ one loose.

Our collecitve voices have been heard now on many occasions resulting in figures that would otherwise not have been done. KOTOR is another example of that. Now that we are getting TWO of them, there is definite hope for the rest at least from the first game.

The Republic Commandos can be counted as another example. And the fact that we got them in one whole set after the initial release of Scorch (who blazed through on sales-pun fully intended), says something about their popularity. Sure enough the articulation could have been better, but they are good enough for what they are.

Getting back on topic, put me down for 2 ICMG.

As for this figure, I'm just gonna pick up about 3-4 of them, mostly for customs.  And my collection wouldn't be incomplete if this figure isn't made, but I do think they'll do a good job on it considering it's probably going to need to have nice sculpt/articulation or a cool accessory as a selling point.  Who knows, they could even throw an Ugnaught in there for good measure.  Or heck, maybe they make a Battle Pack of citizens running through Cloud City trying to get out of there!

Anyways, glad for OCB that this figure is being made... though I want my prequel Lars family to be made soon too and would rather see Cliegg Lars and some of Jabba's aliens... hee hee 

The people who don't want this figure can pass on it.  Simple as that.

I might have to buy three:

One to keep carded

One to have signed by OCB

and one to have displayed running by my POTJ Carbon Freeze Playset.
