Kinda wished Hot Toys would take this on rather than Sideshow but it will do. Picked up DX07 so this will go along with it perfectly.

I heard that Sideshow is maintaining the costumed characters while Hot Toys is focusing on figures with head sculpts. Is that true? :dunno

Nope, Hot Toys can only make figures that Sideshow already produced. But, the limit of only making figures with head sculpts might be correct. Not sure about that one.

lerath666
05-10-2013, 09:28 AM
Nope, the headsculpt thing is pure fanboy dreams.

The only limitations are that they can only do figures sideshow has ALREADY released, or has no intention of Doing ANY time soon.

It is also believed that sideshow holds "veto" power over any release Hot toys wants to do, to cover " secret releases" they might have planed. ( Think SDCC, or SWC exclusives)

SSC only did ANH & Boushh Leia - while Hasbro did a few 12" Leia versions.

I'm hoping for a DX Endor Leia personally, but a Boushh Leia would be cool too actually. :)

darthkostis
05-12-2013, 02:32 PM
A dx Leia with all of her outfits (dress,endor,hoth and slave) would be the best thing ever! Seeing as her outfits are fairly simple designs I could see this happening. As for Boushh I consider "him" a sort of separate character.

Totally on board with HT producing a Boushh Leia! My favorite character and while SS's version was far superior to Hasbro, it's not very accurate, especially the helmet and height. Please HT, DO THIS!!!! And the DX could be one figure of Boushh and one of Slave Leia. How awesome would that be?!

Yeah, I was gonna say didn't HT make the armor for most of the armored figures? I'm sure I've seen someone talking about it on youtube and surely have read about it on the forums.

lerath666
05-16-2013, 01:17 PM
They didn't MAKE it. they assisted sideshow with selecting the correct casting process, factories and the plastics used to make the armor, so the finished product actualy feels like armor. this was something that hot toys had already figured out due to their Predator kits.

They DID help with the design of the Body under the armor. it's essentialy a super-thin truetype.

The actualy DESIGN of the Armor was done in-house by sideshow.

05-16-2013, 01:25 PM
Kinda like old times... Is this a PPO?

It's possible, but Likely not, as the New sideshow buisness model Dosn't allow for it.

Silver Surfer explaned a while back that the new model is based on the Old Inclusive Buisness model.

They open preorders with a To Be Decided edition size. they then take preorders for an extended period of time, untill the sales START to slow down. Once sales start slow down, they Round up to the nearest 1000, 1250, 1500, or 1750 ( 2K, 3K, etc etc) and announce XXX JUST GOT AN EDITION SIZE in the newsletter. this has a few end results

1) it allows sideshow to maximize it's potential sales, cutting signifigantly into the aftermarket sales
2) It makes the figure much easier to get for people who want one
3) it leads to different edition sizes based on the popularity of said character
4) it leaves figures in-stock for sideshow to sell after the figure has been released, and reviews are out, maximizing sales, see #1

this also means it takes MUCH LONGER for figures to sell out on sideshow's site, but in the end means they have much less leftover stock in their warehouse, and over all, things sell out quicker on average, languishing in their warehouse for a much shorter time.

Yes this means that things that "overstay their welcome" end up on giftcard clearence, but only sitting on 200 zartans is better than 6000 Bespin solo's.

aslo.. wht the hate on the baggy costume? this will allow for greater articulation, without the suit hindering it. allowing for the better creation of movie accurate poses.. and once posed, the suit should tighten against the body.

beyond that, In-canon he's got robot arms and legs that were fairly skeletal in their design.. so it SHOULD be baggy on his extremities.

Right... but what's more accurate? This idea of thin robot arms, or what he actually looked like. I don't know what licensors ask for, but I doubt they said "make the suit look like it was made for thick arms, but instead he's got skinny robot ones instead." :lol

Contest also gives a little idea about when we might see this:

Important Prize Shipping Information: The Darth Vader Deluxe Sixth Scale Figure will not be shipped to the winner until it is received into Sideshow Collectibles' warehouse, which is estimated to be January 2014!

Given the fact that this version is Empire/Jedi, I think a great exclusive item would be an alternate blown-out faceplate showing the face of Luke.
If they made the face hollow and thin, it could fit right in front of the Anakin head sculpt. Or, the Anakin head could be removed when displaying the 'Luke's Force Vision' version... but I won't hold my breath.

Anyway- I'm really looking forward to modding accurate lights onto the belt and chest piece.
I've been planning to mold the light blocks from colored translucent plastic, and cut out and replace the sculpted/painted ones. (this assumes of course that lights aren't already included, which is almost certain.) It would REALLY be sweet if the lights were already colored and translucent front-to-back, so adding tiny LED's in the rear and connecting to a hidden battery pack would finish it. I do regular business with an online LED seller, who has everything- including on/off flashing timers.
Either way, it'll be a rewarding mod when I can flip the lights on.

Do you mean other Sandtoopers? Tighter body, multiple pauldrons, much better weathered paint application, more weapons. Sandies went up in price over the Stormtrooper by $20 to $110 and the Deluxe went up another $25 to $135.

At this point, based on other releases, I can't see Vader costing more than $199 from Sideshow. But we'll find out in less than a week.

To be honest... that's much better than I expected. Wait... there's going to be delays... nope, that's exactly what I expected then haha.

I'm just happy I'll have a Darth Vader in my detolf with the 8 months or so. I actually found out about Sideshow with their PF General Grievous... then I saw 1/6 Hot Toys which blew my mind... and Sideshow revealed their 1/6 Grievous at SDCC '11 and hooked me in all the way.

2 years later... and I'm still sad with no news of Grievous in 1/6! Soooo an 8 month wait is nothing!
And at least it's not something like Enterbay Django Unchained... where the licensor ends up forbidding it!

Nothing with that helmet is pleasing to me. If it comes out looking like that it would be heartbreaking. Luckily it looks much better in the other previews so I have good hope. The Medicom diminutive or not looks good to me, old Sideshow not so much.

Look closely and you will find this is just a PLACEHOLDER. It is basically a repainted ANH Vader with a few bits and bobs from the Deluxe figure. That is not representative of what is going up for preorder.

Except for the chest armor not being curved, I don't think there was that much complaining about how Boba Fett turned out.

Really? We should all go back to the thread and relive our original dissapointment...LOL . Lets see, helmet, wrist gauntlets, paint apps, and the chest armor. More issues than the chest armor that I can recall.
I find our apathy increases over time, but by no means as we reflect back 5 years from now will we see this as a decent Fett...like SSC Bespin Han.
I will argue Medicom ROTJ fett will still hold its desire.

That said I'm really hoping SSC pulls this off and we get an amazing Vader.

Meh. Besides the chest armor you're talking about a lot of little nit-picky things only the **** retentives where complaining about. I don't remember a lot of people being disappointed.

And once you mentioned Medicom Fett... well... :lol

I hope ssc does put a nrd on this. It will let the people who want this get this.

Price on this will be around $200/230. Has more to do with the clone pricing. Also the other darth is $185.00. I think I will keep both.

Still say this is wrong.

Betting he's not going to be more than 189. there is NOTHING about this figure that makes me think he'll break the 200$ mark. Not even the fact that it's Darth Vader.

which even then is still too much imo, but the bubble is streached to that point currently.

I don't care how much it is I am getting one. And I think that stands for everyone as well. I don't see the point in speculating on the price when we all know, in the end, SSC has us by the deku nuts.

Darth Malgus is $185 so I imagine Vader will be $200-$210.

Instant buy for me anyways. :clap

Ha, not this cat (though I think this will be expensive with the additional headsculpt, helmet display and stand, plus SSC putting a premium on the character -- and if it's accurate, it'll be worth every penny). Personally I'd rather have no Vader than a fatally flawed one. Hopefully they come through with a fantastic figure, though.

Yeah I know that's why I was confused by what they meant.

I'm guessing the DX is referring to the Deluxe title this figure carries? :dunno

HT Japan/Toy Saphien is the official distributor of SS stuffs, so its only natural that they publicize SS stuffs on their site.

HT DX = PERS. SS DX = more accessories.

Well, here is something to think about.
Commander Wolffe. Significantly more expensive than other clones, not so much from other commanders but still a $20 or so price increase.

Hot toys figures. Most of them have seen a big increase in their prices just because.

SSC + Hot toys working on clone figures might equal to Hot toys help on the weapons, new hs and more. In turn, this will increase the price because HT increased their price in almost all new releases.
Then there is the higher cost of transportation and other variables.

Other than that, price increase justification might be a simple case of SSC feeling they are offering more quality and that they can do as HT does, little by little increasing their prices.
I feel SSC has improved sculpts, paint app and the overall quality of their 1/6 since the first commander was released. This might be another reason why the price increase and the increased quantity of accessories, hs, etc that SSC is adding to let's say Wolffe.

Having the "Deluxe" all over this release, could be a warning that SSC expect to charge for this more than your average 1/6 SW release. But it also means that it will contain more accessories and perhaps improved and more detailed sculpts.

Hydeous
05-19-2013, 10:59 PM
Yeah, the 'Deluxe' might be a warning sign for collectors that SS is preparing to announce a rape price. Though i doubt their human paint apps, inner body is anywhere as good as HT's.

I know Hydeous... But their Emperor Palpatine wasn't that bad as they're not using normal skin tones. But... regardless... I will definitely have my Vader posed with his helmet on instead of the two 15 second scenes where he didn't have it on.

I'm just hoping we don't get a lego chest cough cough BOBA

Well, I for one won't be surprised if this is at least $200. I think the first Vader was the first SS figure to break the $100 mark and it would only be fitting for the 2.0 to be the one that breaks the $200 barrier.

And I didn't have any problems with the SS Fett either, other than the chest armor, and of course the pro body, but that's to be expected. I still think he's a great figure.

Except we wouldalready know if he had a light-up saber. While I agree with you about the pricing IF he had those wasteful things, he's been in development for FAR too long to have one. Thankfully. becuase they look like poo

This is my thoughts as well. I don't think sideshow will try the justification of " He's Vader, lets charge more becuase we can"
I think it's FAR more likely sideshow will go " He's vader, we can do a MUCH LARGER EDITION SIZE" Betting vader breaks 5000 total units when the time comes for them to announce it. Why? Becuase he's vader.
