I treat this as a "what if?" one off. I wouldn't think of this as directly connected to the movies at all. Plus he looks different (and way better) than what ended up in the film. HE'S A BUILD A FIGURE??? FUCK NO! I'm very unhappy about this since I didn't plan on getting any of the other releases (except MAYBE BB if they fix the head). Not happy at all about this. They probably cut the number of people who will get this in half. Then in half again. I wouldn't see any of them as canon. They're too poorly thought out. Is there much care put into ANY of the concepts and ideas in the movies? Especially TLK? The first trilogy are the ones I consider canon, and even then if they retconned the stuff with the primes and the matrix from rotf I'd be totally OK with that.
