    I think Kit looks the best so far. I would get him in a heartbeat, but I really only want to get one of these 12 inchers, and I think I'll wait for someone a bit more special.

    I'll pass on Kit. I already pre-ordered Obi-Wan, so I'm happy for now. :)

    i just dont have the money for these now. i'm working on too many other lines. now...once they release a character i really want/like then i'll make sure to pick that one up. so far there hasnt been anything too desirable. IMO, anyways.

    I'm holding off on Kit as well, as I already pre-ordered Obi-Wan. Now, if they come out with Quinlan Vos...I'm all over that LOL

    A metal Battledroid head!? Now that's just too cool. Pity they couldn't include the rest of the battledroid. :)

    Why didn't it come with a Threepio head?

    Will Sideshow ever start doing droids like Threepio or Artoo? I'd get an Artoo before I'd get Anakin.

    I had my exclusive version ordered at 10:01am! By far the easiest preorder so far, yet it was sold out in about 25 minutes!! Most impressive!

    There were only 1,250 of the exclusive versions. He's awesome, I can't wait for him to arrive. I sorta wish they'd now go darkside so my wallet will get a break this summer from forking over money to them :p

    Kit Fisto figure looks so good. It makes it hard to resist.

    Considering they have now got 4 jedi available I think they should do some bad guys.

    I'm betting the next figure will be female, one way of the other, whether it's our Snowbunny Padme or a female Jedi, we'll have to wait and see...

    Sideshow's good about producing female figures to go with the males.

    If the next Jedi is female, I would LOVE for it to be Luminara Unduli. She has a great costume and would go well with Hasbro's Barriss Offee.

    I'd also like to see some Padme dolls, whether or not they start with the Snowbunny outfit.

    A Luminara figure would be tough on me, I'm not too fond of the character but I love Bariss and is still on the hunt for the the Hasbor Bariss and Shaak Ti, and I'd love a Luminara to go with them.

    I do not know how International shipping is handled there, but WalMart currently has both <A HREF="http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=3661147">Shaak Ti</A> and <A HREF="http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=3661148">Barriss Offee</A> in stock.

    So about how long until they reveal the next 12" Jedi? Is Luke shipping yet?

    Am I asking too many questions? :p

    I think Luke ships in March. Still waiting to hear who the next figure will be, my guess is word will come in the next couple of weeks.

    I know, and my wallet's going to start complaining about it too :p

    I'm hoping that if they do another Jedi it will be a female this time around. I'm also praying and hoping that once they get into the Bad Guys that we get a Zam Wessel who's actually worthy of looking like her, unlike that travesty that Hasbro produced.

    Has there been any word that they're planning on doing anything beyond the Jedi Order collection?

    There are 4 categories of figures that they're going to be putting figures in - basically good guys non-Jedi/ Bad guys non-Empire/Sith (I think) and then Bad Guys Sith to go w/ Jedi Knights.

    So who knows when they'll start creating stuff for the other categories rather than just the Jedi.

    You had me scurrying to see what the 21" figures were :p

    Already got them all, but good news for folks who weren't quick enough to score Luke (who sold out the fastest of them all.)

    Oops! Fixed!

    How fast did the Luke exclusive sell out? I was zoned that day and didn't even realize he was going up for sale until I stopped in here after work and quickly snatched the regular version.
