    So you are defending your Chicken Little-ness, yet you don't have the figure yet...hmmm.

    Well, I can't imagine that I'll get the figure a little later today and say, wow! that tunic rules, I was an idiot! But I'll make you this promise; if that's my reaction, I'll post it.

    I just got Han and I think they are both some of the greatest figures of the entire line so I really scratch my head when I go back and read comments that Sideshow is blowing their momentum they gained with Palps and Old Ben.

    Now you see why I laugh when I read those comments when they're first made.

    I think it's because despite the continuity in paint apps between proto and production on these two, the feeling is overall, the apps were better on Ben and Palpatine, and I'd agree that apps on both better showed off the likeness, but with Han and Luke we got exactly what we ordered, possibly a bit better, and other than the Luke tunic, I don't see any deviation in the clothing either.

    I have to wait until Friday. Can't wait to get him though. The ANH line is turning out nicely.

    I'd say that Ben and Palps are older characters, and thus more wrinke-ly. This makes it easier for the sculpt to shine through the paint.


    ...or it could be a little bit of column A and some of column B.

    Well to me, the sculpt shows fine on Han and Luke, age of the portrait doesn't matter, but I find the eyes on Palpatine, Sidious and Old Ben perfectly capture the emotion and the character, where Luke and Han, while done cleanly, just are missing something indefinable that's holding them back.
