Sideshow Collectibles: 501st Vader's Fist Clone Trooper

We've been waiting for this for far too long, and hum-ho finally here comes the long anticipated 501st Vader's Fist Clone Trooper!!!

Lovin' the battle scarrings on the armor of this figure, even though its just a rehash/repaint of the standard trooper.

Hot Toys Clash of the Titans Preview: Perseus

Looking pretty good. Though i guess everyone's waiting on the full announcement to see the accessories this figure will be sporting. Seems like this figure will be sporting a somewhat similiar body to Comedian's, namely the hirsute* body, as opposed to a muscular rubber sheathed body.
Caught the film today, and i say it's been good enough to get my attention piqued for this line of figures!
