Choked on my coffee when I saw the new Tarkin figure on TheForce.net and RebelScum.com

http://www.rebelscum.com/TF2012/Hasbro-press/VintageE4GrandMoffTarkin37516.jpg

Hope the URL works.

The figure is a dead ringer for Peter Cushing. Very Happy

That's really quite splendid. You know what would have made it cooler? For it to have had fluffy pink slippers on instead of boots Very Happy .

I fixed the url link.

I like that figure. The likeness isn't exactly a perfect match, but I really like the sculpt. It's very nice. Has a lot of character.

Looks like a much younger version of Tarkin.

I kinda like this actually. My brother has the old "Power of the Force" Tarkin and it looks great, this looks just as good!

Tarkin has shown up on Amazon now. He should be in the stores already or real soon.
