Han Solo deserves a better figure than Thor or Jack Sparrow!

Malgus looks awesome, and I am tempted, but I've decided to only collect OT Star Wars 1/6 from now on. Gotta focus on collecting one thing and not spend too much. OT works well for saving moneys since 5 out of 6 Sideshow Star Wars releases are PT. Those clones will break a man's bank.

Is this a statue or action figure? And what scale is it? None of the text there seems to shed any light and Google comes up with nothing. Looks nice - and mostly metal.

It says "first ever elbow articulation" and "eyes light up."

I wasn't expecting too much, just to maybe see some of the stuff that has been hinted at for the past year!

Not seeing Grievous is disconcerting and worrisome. It's not unusual for them to feature figures two years in a row. They did it for Vader, and they're doing it with Boba. Is it back to the drawing board with GG?

No HT Luke either, for that matter.

*whistles* Dang, I was thinking before the Con that if they didn't show some progress on Grievous that it could be an indication that the figure's been cancelled. Also surprised at lack of probe droid and landspeeder. Thought for sure we'd see them this week. :monkey2

How is it that Hot Toys can get the '60s Batman license and build an amazing Batmobile prototype without anyone knowing and apparently in the blink of an eye and we can't get a landspeeder after a year-old tease? :monkey2

The only one figure that concerns me is TPM Kenobi. I mean it looks like him, but it doesn't... and why not give him a real doll hair braid?

I guess human likeness' and BRAIDS are SSC achilles heel.

Yeah, loving the Tuskens. Was sort of questioning my decision to go with two (EX from SSC and regular from LCS) but looking at these pics, really glad I did. They look fantastic.

Yeah, was wondering about that. If I recall correctly, that pad was just black with a lit outline around the edge. Maybe this stand is not based off of that but is meant more along the lines of Boba's Mandalorian stand.

Seems to me that the base lights up, either way (light up or not) if some special base is included, I'm really not looking forward to seeing the price tag on this Vader, even though he looks to be a killer figure..

Those Tuskens man! They are stealing the show!!! Looks like really crazy people dressed up and looking straight at the camera in some of those pics!!!

As for the other 99% of the 1/6 reveals at this years SDCC.. what a yawn... I mean seriously nothing unexpected besides maybe Malgus... Same can be said about the HT 1/6 line... Preds especially.. everythings either been released or seen already.... "OLD NEWS" :mad:

Chogokin C3PO

http://bbs.bbicn.com/data/attachment/forum/201207/12/100737r5s442nk7x2k1ky5.jpg

I just saw on a couple of websites that this is a hyper-accurate 1/6 figure ("first figure to include the asymmetric back of the knee joints" - no idea)

It is at the Sideshow booth. It has light up eyes and articulated elbows, but there's no other info as to whether it's a statue or fully articulated action figure.

Is this "the" 1/6 C-3PO that SSC is releasing, or is this just another Asian line that SSC is distributing? i.e. we will have a choice of THREE roughly 1/6 C-3PO figures on the SSC website in the coming year (SSC, Medi and Chogokin)?

It looks amazing (more accurate than either the Medi 1/6 or the SSC PF, both of which have slight head issues) yet no one seems to be talking about this. I'm assuming with all the metal on it ("6/13") it is largely a statue, but there's no other info online.

I didn't think that chogokin C3PO would be 1/6. That would probably put him in the way too expensive to get range. SOC DX Maz is $400 and 12" too.

Someone posted a video of this on youtube and it was titled '12" figure' and several websites seem to be referring to it as 1/6. Maybe someone who is at SDCC can confirm the scale?

$400 is not very user-friendly however.:(

07-12-2012, 07:01 PM

07-12-2012, 07:06 PM
So far...

Love the "Mythos" Obi-Wan...really nice piece. May have to get that one...

For sixth scale...Bossk looks really good (my favorite so far)...the Tuskens are really fantastic (now let's not skimp on the materials on the way to production please, Sideshow...these look REALLY good)...the Snowtroopers are...OK....still trying to figure out $150 for that gun....

Not blown away by the Vader...looks good but...maybe more pictures will help.

Not gonna jump to too many conclusions yet but, wanting to really be impressed with EpOne Kenobi but...don't like the expression (preferred the neutral one in the preview shot)...the inner robes ALREADY look cheaper and thinner than the preview shot ones...WTF? We haven't even gone into production yet here...wow. Again, maybe more pictures will do it down the line...

So far, underwhelmed. Maybe there's more to come (display-wise)....where's the STAP? Where's Grievous? Where's the tauntaun?

Ah well....keep the coverage coming, folks! It's always appreciated by us on the sidelines....

There might be more coming. They waited until today to put out the Tychs (whatever that is) 1/6 figure.

It's just that the head looks perfect... it's where almost all threepios go wrong.

Vader's one of the few SW characters that really needs to look pristine and perfectly futzed - glossy, cape "done" etc. I think it's just not 100% done or futzed.

:rotfl "Gift Card" in SSC language means "Permission to dig through SSC dumpster."

Honestly, they have nothing in common with the term "gift card" as it is used by any other store on the planet.

Invictus Sol
07-13-2012, 06:17 PM
I'd agree generally that the stuff on the giftcard list is not that great. However, they recently added IG-88. If anyone hasn't picked him up yet, it's about the best SW piece of what's available to use the GC on. A distant second would be Fingrin D'an.

Great catch, Puay!

That's what I was wondering a few days ago. Is this "the" SSC Threepio? It just seems to be more of a statue with limited articulation and lights, but then, you really don't need much articulation on Threepio.

Do other company's products (say like Medicom or non-license sharing items from Hot Toys) that Sideshow sells/distributes ever have things like "Heroes of the Rebellion" on the box?

While the vac-metallizing (or maybe chroming - this is mostly metal) looks a little grainy in closer shots, the head is perfectly shaped, unlike the SSC PF, which looks a little off to my eye.

However, someone earlier mentioned that this will be in the $375 to $400 range due to the metal stuff. Ouch.

There's really no information about this item at all online last time I checked (it took a ton of searching just to confirm it is 1/6 scale.)

Maybe it's just the way die cast metal chromes? Isn't die cast metal a little bumpy up close?

But check out those stomach wires - all actual individual wires, no sculpted/painted stuff.

The figure just looks so accurate. If this isn't the SSC Threepio, I hope they cast this one to make it.
