Not surprised they're pulling out the "sexy" characters so soon. Pass for me, as the character isn't all that important in the grand scheme of things unless you are a huge Bat-Fan. I wonder what the mixed media component is?

@Karamazov: It doesn't have to have a mixed media component to be called PF now. The 1/4 scale is enough.

But I agree with Kara. It's going to be a pass for me since I am not a huge DC fan beyond the core JLA.

How can Sideshow produce a high quality looking piece like this and also the [email protected] attempt at a Scarlet Witch PF? It looks like the statues come from two entirely different companies.

That is certainly not a Miller hair sculpt. I'd say Adam Ross (the one who sculpted the Scarlet Witch comiquette, among others)

Wrong. People keep forgetting that Mixed Media does not translate into fabric. It translates directly into mixed media which means Polystone + something else. If there is metal claws in a Wolverine piece that otherwise is completely sculpted it would count as a Premium Format. There are 1:4 scale Comiquettes and Maquettes as well.

I still think it's a comiquette/maquette (and an instant purchase) but let's say that the stems of her plants are made of are bendy wire or rubber or anything other than Polystone it'd fit as a PF.

People also have to remember that it might have to do with licensing. They have the Disney Premium Format license and not a Maquette license and therefore even though they have items that are 99% sculpted because of the license guidelines they have to market it as a PF.

Things aren't so cut and dry anymore.

Wrong!

Make a long story short, SSC had announced that after Rhino Comiquette everything at 1/4 scale is now called Premium Format.

Only movie based statue maybe called maquettes however SSC has also made some under the Premium Format line like Thor, Captain America & BlackWidow.

Unless the scale is 1/5 or less it maybe called Comiquette or another banner name.

:thwak Did u even read the comment after Rhino Comiquette? Yes some past comiquette statues has been 1/4 but SSC decide to make it straight forward (less confusion between scales), if it's 1:4 it is now called Premium Format regardless of mixed material is used or not! :lecture

:lol That doesn't automatically equate it to being a PF even though there is no mixed media. That just says there won't be any more 1:4 comiquettes. When I see a piece that is billed as a PF that has absolutely no mixed media in it within the Marvel line where there have been both then I'll concede.

As for the DCU they've been close the hip with what the license will include so I wouldn't be shocked if it falls under the Disney guise where it's all PF because of licensing especially with DC Collectibles still trying to make pieces. Marvel, LOTR, Star Wars, licenses where there have been maquettes and premium formats have and still will go under the same definition given almost a decade ago by Sideshow themselves until proven otherwise.

Also VS is right, the only requirement for a statue to be a PF now is that it is in 1/4 scale. It doesn't what it is made of. I for one am glad of this change as I am trying to gear my collection now to be almost all in this scale.

http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m6dydzVVqM1r6lvnp.gif

Relax. Jeez you'd think if I were wrong then the heavens would poor gold onto you. Realistically I went to the sources after reading and not seeing anything definitive in the Rhino Comiquette thread and found two things:

1: Ironically the Spider-Woman PF was ushering in this new wave of sculpted PF (which you listed after I had left, it would have saved me some trouble) but that originally the webbing was to be cloth but it was revised to being thin layers of polystone.

2: It leaves even more of a grey area because it uses "approximates" according to what I could find, it details that pieces that are approximately 1:4 will be labeled PFs but not in all categories or licenses necessarily and pieces that are 1:5 or approximately so could still be called "comiquettes" in the Marvel licenses and maquettes in the other licenses.

So there are still strange places where if a piece is bigger than 1:5 (by proportion, not height so including the entire piece sans base) it will be called a Premium Format but that doesn't mean it will equal a true 1:4. Also that mixed media will only be used in the PF line, so a mixed media will always be a PF but a PF will no longer always be mixed media.

I have to thank my mates on Twitter and Facebook for helping and asked Marissa on Twitter for a direct definition by Sideshow to see if it clears that grey area even further.

But I will concede, I was wrong and you were right, you were more up to date on the information from Sideshow than I was.

We've also seen Hal Jordan GL (another supposed to be fully sculpted with light up feature) teased in the video in almost a finished state with SSC saying it'd be an offering of 2012 last year at SDCC so I'm expecting him at SDCC as well.

Not to mention you won't find a non premium format piece that has mixed media. Mixed Media has and always will be the marker and difference between a comiquette or maquette or anything else despite scale.

Sorry Mike, but he's right. I resist it as much as possible - but it has been decreed from on high that anything that is 1/4 scale, even if 100% polystone - is a Premium Format Figure.

It's stupid and insane and I've been _____ing and moaning about it - but that's how it is.

It's part of the move to streamline the scales of pieces - which is commendable - but I still feel that it severely undermines the term "Premium Format Figure" which is now just a 1/4 scale statue in a lot of cases.

No. Whether it has fabric or not, if it's 1/4 scale, it's now labeled a PF. That does not mean that the fabric has been dropped from PFs. It also doesn't guarantee that fabric will be used if a statue is labeled a PF.

This is stupid. They should just make Coms in 1/4 scale. This way we'll know the scale and we'll know it's fully sculpted. Also, when something is labeled a PF, we'll know it's 1/4 scale and has a cloth element. SSC has just futzed this all up. We don't know what's what anymore. It's more confusing than ever. If they weren't selling 1/5 scale Coms then ditch em and make them all 1/4 scale from here out. Easy. No need for this everything is a PF BS now.

Yeah, I guess they decided to dabble more in their scale manipulations in the comiquette line. At least buyers now know the scale when they are getting the PF and they can just choose to collect those.

True. However, when a piece is sneaked as a PF, we don't know right away if there is a cloth element or not. For example, the new Red Skull PF was sneaked awhile ago. I still don't know if cloth will be used on that statue or not. There is no official word given on that piece yet. If it were labeled a 1/4 scale Com, then I would know right away that it is fully sculpted. Conversely, I would know anything labeled a PF would contain cloth. 1/4 scale is not the only thing important to me. Having a statue fully sculpted carries equal value in my book. By labeling everything 1/4 scale as a PF, SSC just adds to the confusion as to what we are seeing or buying. Hell, in this very thread there is nothing but confusion as to what format Poison Ivy is. When SSC starts confusing seasoned Vets like Darklord and The Mike, something is wrong.

I don't know what's so confusing after this is what SSC said after the Rhino Comiquette?:dunno SSC is simply standardize 1:4 scale statues from smaller scale statues. This should really be clear cut to all the buyers if a statue is 1/4 or not.


This is one of the last 1/4 scale comiquette pieces to be billed as a comiquette. Future 1/4 items would pinned as a Premium Format Figure.

It doesnt matter if the Spider Woman & Red Skull are sculpted or not? As long as its 1:4, it's Premium Format.

There was no announcement that SSC was doing lesser scale DC statues but PFs, LSF, 1:1 busts and 1/6th figures. I am 99.9% sure this is a Premium Format at 1:4 scale.

True, hopefully they will define the materials used in the product description. I would still like to get a fully sculpted 1/4 line to ensure we get all the characters done in that format. I'm sure the cloth lovers will want that split too so that a full range is made with fabric. I may even collect multiples of more characters in that case.

You are missing my point entirely. Why should I have to wait to call SSC about the format of a sneaked piece when it finally becomes available? As a buyer, wouldn't it make sense for SSC to inform a customer about their products upfront as much as possible? Do you really think customer service wants to field those kind of questions right now? With SDCC around the corner and the massive Bats bust recall, I'm sure they don't need to be fielding those kind of questions.

I wasn't really worried if it's 1/5 or not. The discussion had more to do with identifying whether a PF is fully sculpted or has cloth on it. With some sneaks it's not easy to tell. The old way worked better IMHO. A Com is fully sculpted. A PF had mixed media elements. Simple. No one had to tell me anything about the pieces using those labels. What's done is done. SSC changed it. We all just have to deal with it.

This piece will look good regardless of scale. Off the 2 sneaks alone, Ivy looks great.

Sideshow hasn't beeing going with any specific artists or looks so far. More or less their own takes on the characters, and they nailed it so far.

I was hoping I'd hve more time to decide whether or not I'm going to commit to the Batman Rogues in 1/4 yet. I was hoping to see the 1/6 figures first. Hopefully we get to see on of those before Ivy goes up for pre-order.

And I totally think they'll pull a droids Exclusive with this. Regular flesh tone, exclusive green flesh tone.

Not true in the slightest. I have a few PFs but they just aren't my cup of tea most of the time. They have to be pretty iconic characters for me to snag a PF, which is why I think I'll pass on the PFs except for Batman and Joker. But I hope they do the 1/6 as much justice as the PFs have so far.

True. However, when a piece is sneaked as a PF, we don't know right away if there is a cloth element or not. For example, the new Red Skull PF was sneaked awhile ago. I still don't know if cloth will be used on that statue or not. There is no official word given on that piece yet. If it were labeled a 1/4 scale Com, then I would know right away that it is fully sculpted. Conversely, I would know anything labeled a PF would contain cloth. 1/4 scale is not the only thing important to me. Having a statue fully sculpted carries equal value in my book. By labeling everything 1/4 scale as a PF, SSC just adds to the confusion as to what we are seeing or buying. Hell, in this very thread there is nothing but confusion as to what format Poison Ivy is. When SSC starts confusing seasoned Vets like Darklord and The Mike, something is wrong.

For me I think scale is the most important factor. Before with CQ all people would ask was I hope its 1/4 scale or I wonder if its 1/5 scale at least now we know. I am in the middle of changing my collection because I want mostly all 1/4 scale. After that you can determine from the pics if it has cloth or not most times. To be honest I don't care if it has cloth or not the only thing I care about is if I think it looks fantastic in the pictures. If yes then buy if not then I don't.

I don't know what's so confusing after this is what SSC said after the Rhino Comiquette?:dunno SSC is simply standardize 1:4 scale statues from smaller scale statues. This should really be clear cut to all the buyers if a statue is 1/4 or not.

:lol I'm not sure if you fully understand how this works.

I didn't order the Rhino Comiquette so the first time I went into that thread really was when we were discussing PFs in this thread. I didn't order Spider-Woman so the first time I went there was when one of my friends aimed me that way for clarification.

Not everyone dances in every single thread on these boards. If Sideshow was going to make an across the board change like this it's something you'd assume would be announced on their site, not just in a couple of blurbs from Alex in a singular item's thread. Especially when on their site before there was a definition of a PF labeled specifically as Mixed Media and 1:4. You need to calm it back a notch and understand that people, even those who are here almost daily are still finding out this information because Sideshow DID NOT fully disclose this change.

http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lpfiq5AjrI1qafrh6.gif



Sorry Mike, but he's right. I resist it as much as possible - but it has been decreed from on high that anything that is 1/4 scale, even if 100% polystone - is a Premium Format Figure.

It's stupid and insane and I've been _____ing and moaning about it - but that's how it is.

It's part of the move to streamline the scales of pieces - which is commendable - but I still feel that it severely undermines the term "Premium Format Figure" which is now just a 1/4 scale statue in a lot of cases.

Yeah, I agree Dave, it's stupid and doesn't make sense especially since Mixed Media PF is what gave SSC their foothold and made their pieces different but it is what it is. I like Ivy so far and will buy her but will take a bit to get used to these fully sculpted PFs.


When SSC starts confusing seasoned Vets like Darklord and The Mike, something is wrong.

It's simple lack of communication. Something like this would be expected to have an announcement of some kind since it is changing the status quo but whatever, _____ing about it isn't going to help. One has to wonder what other changes have been done that were mentioned in a random thread without full disclosure. :lol

You should trust the people that pointed out the official changes made by SSC without doing all the questioning. Dave already knew about the changes but he just doesnt want to accept it because of the separation of mixed media or not; that will now be combined to one format if it's 1:4 scale.

Sometimes changes are good even if you don't agree with it. It was done for a single purpose which was to standardize all 1:4 formats fully sculpted or mixed media into one.

Star Wars, Video Games, Aliens, Predators - they still have 1/5 unfortunately, based on some artistic and price point basis.
But thankfully Marvel is now all 1/4 which helps with the statue matching the needs of the design not the mandatory inclusion of an unnecessary mixed media rule.
It also helps with my display not being all over the ____ing place and Collossus not being shorter than Wolverine.

If your interest in Comiquettes is because of the all-sculpture style, then take heart. You’ll be seeing more stylized sculptures under the Premium Format banner, and labeled as such to keep consistency in scaling. With or without clothing, if they’re 1:4 scale, they’re Premium Format. There are a lot of factors driving this decision, including production costs, sales, and Ask Sideshow trends, but we are prioritizing Premium Format (1:4 scale) over most other sculpture formats.

No no, I'm not saying what you like, I'm saying they've already stated that just because it's fully sculpted doesn't mean it's a Com anymore.

I don't plan on passing on any of those. Too awesome to pass up.

After Ice Man, Colossus, DareDevil... I figure that "focus" means that SS have finally woken up to the fact that the majority of collectors care about scale in the Marvel line. Want to bet there is another 1/5 comiquette released?


Sure I'll bet you. How about the new JS Campbells Mary Jane or Gwen Stacy comiquettes :wink1: If I'm right, you buy me those 2 statues, if I'm wrong, I'll buy u those statues. Those will be 1/5 scale statues :lecture


Done*

*Based off scale of statue measurements and official marvel wiki physical attributes compared to actual statue - and accounting for pose.

If Sideshow decides to focus on fully-sculpted 1/4 statues over mixed media, calls them PFs and prices them the same as the true mixed-media PFs I will call for a jihad.

Was this sneak peak leaked?

Welcome aboard Mark. I presume you are THE Mark Newman. I can't believe no one caught this before me. I assume you are behind this lovely looking statue since you joined up and posted here. I must say, this may be your finest work yet. Any other info you can give up on this piece?

It's good to see you here. Feel free to drop in on us whenever you can.

Sideshow posted these pics through their Facebook page, so I don't get why people are thinking this might not be official.

Anywho, looks like SS is focusing on a Jim Lee "Hush" concept by creating the main characters of that story first

The pics are not "official". The pictures were received and placed on the site before Sideshow said anything. (I wonder if the forums discussing it forced their hand?) Sideshow only first discussed it today in a tease.

No one is thinking the piece itself isn't official. I'm actually shocked that SSC didn't ask for them to be taken down like they have in the past for leaks. They must have decided that since it's probably going up this coming week to just let it ride. I can't wait to see the full piece and hopefully next to the Joker to see how they go together.

Maybe. That's only if I pegged him correctly. Why else would he join and make only one post in this thread? It's just a guess on my part but I think our new board member and Mark Newman are one and the same. Would like to hear it from him though. Just to make it official.

Kind of sucks that other sculptors don't frequent here as much as SF. Maybe with the changes to the new forum layout, they might be. I know Tim Miller rarely frequents here but would love Martin C, Pablo V and Mark N more often.

Amen Brother. It's a real treat to see these guys pop up around here. I hope it becomes more frequent.

Probably because there are too many picky mofos on the forum that aren't afraid to bash a sculpt without hesitation.

Yah those mofos :mad: I think that this forum is too much action figures clumped with the statues that it makes it difficult to search for things. I do think that SF have more bashers in sculpt then here. With the new forum changes, hope it will change there mind and come here more often. Strange though the SSC rep frequent here and not the other forum?

Agreed. They're pretty hardcore over there. I actually used to be a member over there, but stopped altogether a few years back.

This would be it. There was a time when I remember Adam Hughes posted for a bit, we got almost all the SSC artists, even AH's girlfriend/fiancee/wife (I'm unsure) Allison under DarthSaffron.

People pounced on them without any hesitation or even a tad bit of tact. I remember seeing the arguments running rampant in AH! threads between members and Allison. The strange thing is it doesn't stick to just sculpt or piece comments but some members aren't afraid to get personal or even go straight for the throat. Hell the forum even scared away Bryan Ono on his first day. :lol

This forum is a lot of things but artist friendly it ain't.

It's amazing how the internet provides people with courage, sad too that they forget manners or even the fact that if it was so easy to create pieces like these everyone would do it.

And after they bash a sculpt they wonder why Sideshow artists stay away.

There are way to many Freaks here who think that they are entitled to say whatever they want to whomever they want.
