Always fun to compare :D

Which one do you prefer and why ?

Definitely Sideshow. The Attakus one looks like he's shooting birds.

Plus, the Attakus is inaccurate -- he has ROTJ hip pouches but he's wearing his green gauntlets and jetpack from ESB.

Since the SS Fett is what most of us have been waiting for, this might be a lopsided race.

I am a Fett fanatic but have never considered spending that kind of money on the Attakus Fett. I even prefer the controversial GG pose to that. For some reason, it reminds me of when he got his blaster cut in half by Luke's lightsaber. Unable to get that image out of my head, it's what I would think of every time I looked at my $1000 statue. I just prefer a laid back Fett hiding his skill behind a cool and relaxed exterior.

Sideshow's, I like the mixed media. Plus like Wor-Gar said, the Attakus looks like he is shooting birds....and missing them.

Right. It looks like he is reacting to something (and poorly) rather than actively stalking or attacking. I want to see him on the offense, not the defense. If Attakus Fett had a caption, it would be:

"Whuuuhhh?!?"

i haven't seen either one but from the picture i would say SS because he just looks to darn cool :cool: The Fett man is standing there like a pimp daddy.

SS by far....I LOVED the mixed media...and his pose is much better from SS, IMHO....Like he knows hes a bad ass and there aint nothing anyone can do about it....

I say... it's good to have both :D

I'm not voting in this poll.

The SS Fett looks like he's leaning forward too much.

It's simple. I am a PF addict. There's just something about mixed media that has a greater appeal than a full sculpt to me.

The Attakus one is shooting targets. While the SS one is standing so damm cool:cool:

EASILY Sideshow.

Mixed media just rules.

I have the Attakus Fett and will be getting the PF one, but
that will be my only SS star wars PF I'm interested in. I like
both poses and am glad SS did the ROTJ version. I may be
in the minority, but I like the exclusive...where my Fett goes that
wall artifact will look good. I didn't vote since I like both.

Buzzie

I would like to have both...

Indeed the Full Poly Attakus would better match the
rest of my collection :rolleyes:

Sideshow by FAR and that's not SS "sniffing". It's just my opinion that SS's pieces are generally much nicer that Attakus.

yeah i agree that Sideshow is leaps and bounds above attakus, but attakus used to be really great back in the day. IMO the first Vader is my favorite work by attakus. followed second by darth maul and the emperor. i swear one day i will break down and buy one of these:

That one is truley Attakus's best.With out a doubt!!! I still love mixed media though.

i think it would've been cool if sideshow had the jetpack lightup or his chest piece or something. after having vader's stuff light up im spoiled and think everyone should have something electronic in it.:D

PF Boba without a doubt. The Attakus statue is one of their better efforts by some distance but the mixed media format of the PF Boba makes it look a lot closer to the original movie costume by far. It's gonna be a hell of a wait for my first PF but I know I'm gonna be blown away by it's greatness when it does arrive :D

Having never seen anything Attakus up close, but plenty of pictures. I may not be the most qualified to vote - but then again that is the case for the SS Boba. I really don't care for Attakus at all, their human sculpts are ALL atrocious, and it can't have much to do with the early days; the new Luke is about as bad as it gets! Boba and Jango look the best of the bunch, but the pose is a deal breaker.

Not a fair fight. Anything with mixed media automatically wins in my book!

Of course, SS Boba! I find the Attakus Boba lamer than the PF Boba's exclusive accessory!:D

I never liked the **** Cheney Boba. He is either dancing like a sax player or shooting t-shirts at the crowd during the ball game.

This poll is just unfair. :lol

SS Fett due to the clothing and the pose.

I think the GG Boba should have been in on the poll as the pose is wicked. I think with the cost of it compaired to the others it might get over looked.

Mixed media pieces always win out with me.

Verdict, SSC! Not even close.

Ditto, I also think of buying Vader 1 with a bank credit :D

But shipping it is really scaring me, One day will come

The same poll on the Attakus board will have a slightly different outcome I belive. Some people like mixed media, others don't, some like both... 100% polystone figures and mixed media figures are just 2 different classes, hard to compare IMO. But if you would consider money an indicator for appreciation: I haven't seen one SSC PF reach the price some of the Attakus classic's score. Until now, that is.

07-14-2006, 04:21 PM
Even with this being a Sideshow board and all, I am surprised at how badly Attakus Fett is being trounced.

Darth Robbler
07-14-2006, 04:22 PM
Sideshow version. I owned the Attakus and could not get past the pose, plus in person it is just not that cool. The pose looks like someone kicked him behind the knees. I did like the money I got for the Attakus on ebay though, it is funding all of my sideshow purchases this year!
Sideshow blows Attakus out of the water!!

In time, in time...

Some Attakus pieces will always rule (Vader1) and have been out for a few years longer than SSC so it will be a few more years before we know how things shake out IMO. I personally think mixed media has more tactile value, more of a museum quality to it...

Not to rag on it too much as I've expressed my opinion on this many times, but WHY would someone prefer fully sculpted? Do braided wookie scalps look better made out of resin and painted rather than created from real hair?

Sure, there are some scale issues with real materials, clothes hang differently on the smaller size, but it's still a step closer to reality and should be appreciated as such.

The MSRP was $185. He is selling on eBay for between $100-$125.

I am one of the few who don't like mixed media, too dollish for me, BUT!!!! I am getting the SSC version with out a doubt. Best pose and just cool. I'd actually say the Koto Boba has the best pose...anyone with a lot of time wanna put all 4 side by side??? :D

WHY though should folks not like statues or prefer them? It's just different strokes for different folks. I like both personally. I don't find fault with either and don't look at one being better than the other. They both can capture a lot of what I like about each character.

Sideshow all the way. I really like Attakus but I think the pose on this one which is an attempt on an action pose doesn't look good. GG's wierd finger thing ruined their good sculpt. Anyway, Attakus don't do humans and action poses too well.
