Are you going to start a SW diorama crusade? :D Anyhow, all of your suggestions are great!:monkey5

If you mean 2 PFs that have complementary poses like Obi-wan and Vader - sure, I'm all for it. If you mean 2 PFs with a base, I'm not so sure - it would be too huge for any normal display space.

Dave pretty much said what I was thinking....I mean I'am sure they would look cool and all but were the hell could you display something that large, and the cost would be huge....I like the PF line the way it is....

It would be HUGE and expensive but I'm up for it. Imagine, MAUL vs Qui-Gon PF :monkey5 , or General Grievous vs. Obi-Wan :monkey5

I think the scale would have to be different. It wouldn't be 1/4 scale. That'd be friggin enormous!!! It'd be closer to 1/6 scale like the Marvel VS line. I would most definately be interested, especially if the exlusives had light up bases and sabers. So, hellz yeah. Bring it on!

or imagine a Maul vs. Qui Gon & Obi Wan.

~~yeah i really didnt think about the actual sizes until afterwards. but consider the possibilities. im not sure what the sizes are with the Marvel dioramas, but say sideshow cooked up something like that. i know that would be extra stuff to buy--- but if they did only the EPIC battles i dont think too many people would complain.

I would love to see star wars dioramas. Maybe not PF size though. One idea that has not been mentioned is a Yoda and red royal guard diorama. Yoda walking into Palps office with two red guards plastered to the wall.

I'm in agreement with Loki, not in 1/4 scale, way too big. Also I would keep it like the Marvel vs. dioramas and not make them mixed media, but straight poly.

Darth Loki

If this line existed, it would be huge (popular, not size). There could be some really great moments captured and the use of electronics would only make it even sweeter. Let the SW VS. Diorama cruisades begin!

I voted no, because I read the question first and voted. So, no if PF size, but probably if Marvel VS size! :google

I'm with lcummins. Only if it was in the same scale as the Marvel vs. Line. I haven't heard it mentioned but I would like to see an Obi-Wan vs. Jango Fett on Kamino. Also, while it wouldn't be a vs. diorama, I would like a Vader screaming noooooooooo with palpatine looking on.:D

No interest.

Static 1/4 poses just look better IMO.

The Marvel vs. line works because they are comic book characters.

Star Wars would come off cheesy to me, like those Unleashed figures.

I think if they weren't done right they might look cheesy, but I think that sideshow could do them and still look good.

I agree 100%. SS knows Polystone and they know what works with some experience in the VS line already. There are many great moments that could be captured but where to start? Luke VS Vader on Bespin would be nice. Light up base and sabers for the exclusive :drool :drool :drool

But who are we kidding, the line hasn't even been announced and we don't know that it ever will. But hopefully Dusty is sending this thread to the bigs at SSC :D

Diaromas are much more better than stand alone statues and I believe in future, diaromas will be much more popular. I love the Marvel line and would jump on SW line, regardless of what characters chosen, or what scale it will be...etc

hairlesswookiee
07-05-2006, 01:56 PM
i think to keep it affordable they would have to keepthe scale close to the Marvel sizes. like i said with one diorama they could take care of two characters that might otherwise be skipped. Obi Wan seems to be the VS. ho-dog. he gets in fight with everyone it seems. uh oh i have a couple more for the list!!!!

Anakin/Vader and two 501st troops heading up the temple stairs
Palpatine in his throne with Luke and Vader clashing lightsabers!!!!
Jabba and Salacious Crumb

couldn't agree with you more. I rather pay for two or more characters in scale with the Marvel line than pay for one character in PF version. THis is the reason why I passed on all the PF due to the size and cost. If SS do go on with this line, I'm all over it.

07-05-2006, 03:05 PM
hey im not try to shoot the PF line down, but this is something i think SS would pull off really well and people that cant buy the PF can buy these instead. everyone wins!!!!:chew :chew :chew

I would buy some of the VS series but would prefer them to be statue like in how the Marvel series is done.

I would rather Sideshow put more effort into the 1/6th and PF line. IMO if they added another line of figures to the series it would only slow down the releases further. I am happy with what Sideshow is doing and do not wish to
to spread the line to thin.

I agree, the Vader/Obi Wan is just perfect, I wouldn't want a scene depiction with background etc.

Make it a 1:1 and the neighborhood kids can climb on it like a rock formation. It'd also serve the added benefit of fathers volunteering to watch the kids for awhile to give the mommies some alone time.

how come the dioramas need to be 1/4 PF scale? what's wrong with the Marvel Vs scale?

That's what the past 20 posts have been talking about. A 1/4 diorama would be massive.

Solid...mostly everyone commented that the PF would be huge and expensive so the size like the Marvel line would be better.

I really do not want to get my hopes up on this but who knows... I know that this would be another line in the Star Wars genre but for those of us that don't have room for the PF and cash, this is the way to go. :D

As long as it looks cool, I'm all over it. The Marvel line is awesome and I'd love to see Star Wars given the same treatment. I love the PF's but most are out of my price range, so this would be cool....

I'd love to see Anakin vs Obi-wan or Luke vs Vader.... There are a lot of possibilities in the long run. :cool:

I'm more than happy with the PFs. If we were to see something along the Vs. line or other type of dioramas, I would expect to see it from GG. I think the Rancor is a step in that direction.

PF dioramas would be nice but just too darn big! 1/6 scale is the way to go! Probably also more affordable.:rolleyes:

Darklord Dave

Since I greatly prefer the mixed media format I'd be less inclined to buy a SW Vs. line in 1/6 or 1/8 scale. I agree that they'd be too much like the Unleashed toys.

I agree; and, if SS were to make anything smaller than 1/4 scale for such a line, it'd just be too close to what GG does. SS would have to keep it 1/4 scale and mixed media. That'd be the way to go regardless of cost.

yeah sorry about this guys i didnt realize the size of the PF until after i posted the poll and i dont know how to edit it. i meant for them to be the same size as the Marvel dioramas.

Darth Loki
07-06-2006, 08:39 AM
That's OK dude. I think the overwhelming majority knew what you meant or interpreted it. I also think the majority would be in favor of this line. Just look at the success of the Marvel line and multiply it by the number of SW fans and it's a no brainer. Now if we could only get SSC to listen.......

thanks, i just hope SS would wait a while before trying this line out. im afraid it would hurt the sales of the regular PF line... which i dont want. i just want another option for those that either dont plan on or cant afford to get every PF character. and thats why i think this line would be perfect-- you get two figures together in an awesome, iconic fighting scene. the size would be perfect for people that dont have much shelf space.

think a cheaper way would be the way to go...instead of doing a polystone statue of scenes, like the AWESOME Marvel VS line..

do one of the backgrounds...in mixed format, what ever would make it work

in a sense a "stage" of certian scenes from the films...we've got the characters, just need a backdrop or scene to put them in..the beauty behind it would be that you could set them up any way you wanted...and unlike the polystone versions you chould change them up all the time.......different sizes and versions (ships, landscapes, rooms etc......) limited amounts made or not



I can see it now ..contests on who can make it look just like the scenes in the movie....



whatcha think? I would jump on them








oh and sideshow if you jump on my idea can I get comped one of each? :D

Thats the whole point.

You get to see the whole tradgic metamorphasis happen.

It also beckons the question of how did that little innocent boy become such a Dark Lord of the sith?

Also had another good idea for a VS Diorama

Luke/Vader in empire strikes back when luke finds out vader is his father

http://www.firsttvdrama.com/funstuff/images/vader1.jpg

This idea but with luke at the other side, no hand, clinging with the other totally destroyed by the news.
