This has to be a bull____ thing to promote Chewbacca as I don't really see the others (maybe Amidala) getting a shot in Hell as being made by HT, right?

Some of those are odd choices. When HT does a poll does it usually mean that any of the choices are on the drawing board to be made? The only two viable options I would think are Padme and Chewbacca. I'm probably in the minority to think a highly detailed Jar Jar figure would be interesting and that I'd probably buy it if they made it. A Biggs would be interesting because we haven't seen a rebel pilot uniform in sixth scale, but Biggs would be an odd choice if they are only pick one character a year.
Another thing odd about those choices is SS hasn't done any of them in sixth scale with the exception of that Clone Wars Padme. I'd sure like to see a decent Padme but if they could pull off a Chewbacca it would be a win for everyone.

Aside from Chewie none of them deserve to be the second figure.

The way i'd like to see it is Original Trilogy character, then Prequel character then a different Original character and another prequel character.

That way for those collecting only the original or the only the prequel line there is a good spacing between.

Chewbacca of course, although they could do a really nice Amidala figure, but there's way too many other characters to do before that, so it will probably never happen.

HT already said that all Star Wars figures would be DXs so does that mean PERS on a Chewbacca? They could do interchangable head pieces and cover Episode IV and VI fairly easily. Not exactly accurate but still possible.

Really though, the only difference with the OT looks is the hair hanging down the side of his forehead. Outside of that it's all about the items he comes with. Bowcaster (and for all versions) and binders for ANH, gasmask for ESB, chains for ROTJ, etc.

We can only hope, in reality they really don't care about these. When they did the Michael Jackson one, Beat-it won but they released Bad first... and he wasn't on the poll...

So I'm thinking the second one is definitely Han and the third one Chewie!
It's safe to say that HT will focus only on the core characters... so no Biggs, no Papanoida... Jar Jar on the other hand... :horror

I would think it would be opposite, with Sideshow hogging all the main figures and giving HT the obscure ones, kind of like what we are seeing in this new poll (minus Chewbacca of course). Looks like they already took two of the bounty hunters, which look good so far, but I would love to have gotten a HT Boba Fett.

SSC can't do a Chewbacca, they know it or they would have done it. HT has already broken ground with their POTA figures and then is the next frontier. It's happening and it'll be mindblowing.

That makes no sense

People heard from SSC reportedly at SDCC. The thing is that even they said it would have exceptions. Chewbacca would be an exception, a TPM Obi-Wan wouldn't be because SSC can pull that off no problem. I would say before seeing IG-88 a Grevious would be an exception there too although now SSC has shown they can handle droids. I wouldn't be shocked if we saw Threepio and Artoo from SSC before we ever saw them from HT.

I really want to see Han or ROTS Anakin. Yes I know people think Chewie is years overdue (and in a sense he is) but in my opinion since the start of the line we haven't gotten a decent Han or Anakin so I consider them just as MIA as the wookiee. I'd certainly like to have one of those two in my collection sooner rather than later.

Blade3327
11-18-2011, 04:43 PM
I'm really curious as to how they'll handle the fur on Chewie, plus he's an iconic character so HT would be smart to go with him.
Having that said, we don't have a single decent Amidala figure in 1/6 and Sideshow's is just... well, you know. I'd be almost equally curious as to how HT would handle her elaborate attire and she'd make a cool figure too.


Other than those, the rest (with the exception of Tarkin maybe) were hilarious to see. HT was clearly trying to point us in a certain direction with this poll.

I'm really curious as to how they'll handle the fur on Chewie

Best case scenario they punch the hair throughout the new TT that will have to be made and it's an actual furred figure. Worst Case scenario it'll be a suit that he wears with punched fur in the face, hands and feet.

6. Why do you produce Luke as the first Star Wars project, but not other famous characters such as Darth Vader and Stormtrooper? Does it because Hot Toys process the technique of producing real-like head sculpts? Will the DX series focus on human character? Have you decided the next character yet?

Luke has always been my favorite character and my first owned figure is 3.75” Luke. That’s why I like him very much and actually this style allows much room for development – consists of broken arms and battle damaged version. Besides, head sculpt is also one of the main factors for our consideration. We pick character based on Sideshow’s product development – those haven’t been launched by Sideshow or won’t be launched recently will be our priority to avoid competition. And recently Sideshow has launched those with armor such as Stormtrooper and BOBA FETT. Actually there are over 1000 characters from the movie, so there are many choices and we haven’t decided which is next yet

Not to start an argument. . .okay, yes, I'm starting an argument, but Superman was confirmed in Jan of 2010 and officially shown in May of 2011, that's 17 months.

Metal Gear license was confirmed in December of 2010. We're not even at a year on that one.

Also, Avatar was almost 18 months, so yeah.

And yes, the Marvel movie license was announced much earlier than all of those, but in fairness, they've already done quite a few figures from that license, just not the ones people are foaming at the mouth for.

SSC can't do a Chewbacca, they know it or they would have done it. HT has already broken ground with their POTA figures and then is the next frontier. It's happening and it'll be mindblowing.

Even if it's from ROTS:

http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lpivtsHd9v1r0ojhto1_500.gif

To be honest they better step it up from those. They came out in production so so at best. So while I think they want to see how much people want Chewie (I'll be passing to be honest) I don't expect him to be next.

Sideshow struggles with creating anything that's not a typical human. If there's anyone that can do a good Chewbacca, it's Hot Toys. And we MUST have one sometime.

However...on a serious note, the character I'd like to see is Anakin.

He is one character who's intense "look" may lend itself well to this PERS thing...especially the deep-set intense look he features in ROTS. A really comprehensive set featuring both the AOTC and ROTS looks and accessories could be really something.
