I am a fan first of the original trilogy (ep 4,5,6), then the first episodes (1,2,3). I am not sure what the plans are for the new trilogy but I don't think I will be collecting those. There are so many star wars characters in the first 6 movies already.

To me from the interview it sounds like they don't like having to share the money with SS, and are waiting for a new contract ,which will be the disney sw flicks.

Weren't people saying they'd price themselves out of the market when these hit $300?

I agree though, when will too much be too much for a figure?

Now i know Padme loves little orphan Anni, whose she's know since before his ***** dropped :horror
But he admits to murdering a bunch of men in the deseet and the women and the damn children.

Makes her shock over his killing Younglings in the next movie seem surprising now since she knew he was a child killer already.

He murdered those who kidnapped his mother, tortured her and possibly raped her too causing her death. These people are criminal savages which they know themselves so no one really takes it that bad as if someone killed innocent women and children from say Naboo. :wink1: He could probably be viewed more as a hero for sparing future victims from the crimes of that tribe.

Ohmygod he sucks.... That is so utterly painful it's shocking! Not just in the context of a really bad Star Wars movie, but in terms of acting in general! There are better actors in Attack of the 2 Headed Shark! "Yipee" and all the other insanely bad parts aside, that little kid in TPM actually did a better job, considering he was only 6 years old (or whatever.)

Anyone who can defend his acting in AOTC and ROTS must never ever have seen any other actors in any other movies, or something.

There's better actors selling ***** on late night infomercials.

I don't even hate the prequels, but that is probably the worst acting in any of the Star War movies. Well, maybe their love scenes are worse. But yeah, Hayden is not very good.

It's one of the elements of Star Wars that is hard to accept as you get older. He regardless of motives murders an entire tribe - he obviously feels some regret - but within the Wild West Star Wars causal murder seems ok. He conceals it from the council so it must be an issue yet as people say locally he would probably been a hero and it see to make padme hot for him!!!

We were just discussing this recently in the Star Wars thread in the movie section... how much better the character is in the CGI Clone Wars than how he was handled in the PT. Its a huge difference, its hard for me to even associate that these are the same character.

Agreed. He knew what he did was wrong according to the Jedi code and he regretted it.

I don't agree with the "I slaughtered them" scene was bad acting as some say here. It was perfect to me. I thought Hayden acted with such emotion. A mix of anger, confusion and instability. The characteristics of someone turning to the dark side. It's hard to explain for me in English, but I thought it was perfect. I wonder if people even understand this character when they say it was bad acting? :dunno

You know you put yourself in his shoes... A savage tribe kidnaps your mother, tortures her and probably rapes her.. she dies.. I would probably have done the same as Anakin. When something like that happens to you.. ****, I doubt I'd argue about what is right and wrong.

:lol at the last part! Padmé: "Oh Ani, do that thing where you slaughter an entire tribe of tusken raiders!"

The impression I got from that interview is that maybe that they're getting the License that Medicom holds and thereby aren't limited to the License they have through SS so they can thereafter produce whatever they wanted.

Which also makes me think that it could be that SS limits what and who they can produce.

Exactly...its been in the rumor mill along time that Hot toys was going for their own license. Given they have ties already with Disney and Hasbro for various license it only make sense they have been holding back so they do not have to pay royalties to SSC.
As much as we are not fans of the fact they have yet to release another figure...its obvious they can dish out figures quickly if they want given what they are doing with Iron Man.

Pixelpiper

I don't think there are any facts to back up that line of thinking. The most simple explanation is probably the closest one to the truth. Iron Man is a hot item right now for HT. Don't forget also that without SSC, Hot Toys won't be able to sell their goods worldwide in any significant fashion.

hunnipot85
10-06-2013, 03:43 PM
I hope that if they do get Medicoms license, they focus on SW like they have with Iron Man. There are so many great figures and I have a feeling that mixed with this new trilogy, it will take years and years to get Leia, Han, Padme etc if they don't focus on SW.

No one knows for sure. But what I think most of us wants is a 2 in 1 package similar to the Luke DX07. Including two headsculpts, Sith and Jedi headsculpts. The clothing was exactly the same as far as I can remember from when he was a Jedi until he turned to evil. So they could even have the second body be from AOTC because there were some minor differences in the Jedi clothing and of course include a third headsculpt of EP2 Anakin. That would be the ultimate Anakin package, with lots of accessories and a nice diorama.

Personally, I think every figure that comes with two head sculpts should come with a second body and clothes like the Luke DX07. I mean if the head sculpts are good I want to display both figures not chop and change the heads all the time.

The more coherent option should be normal version and battle damaged chopped up one (still unburnt) with Sith head.
You will be able to have Jedi, Sith and BD in one pack.

Agreed. But that would undoubtedly bring up the prices for most figures, unless the clothing on the 2 bodies are similar, like on the DX07 and what it should be on the Anakin DX figure.

The posing on the chopped up Anakin would be very limited and wouldn't make sense without a diorama. But I'd love to see it. I just hope they include both the Sith and Jedi headsculpts. And then a nice Mustafar diorama, like the hovering lava platforms. Would make an awesome display together with an Obi-Wan DX figure.

All this talking about Hot Toys and Star Wars just makes me depressed. Wished they would pump out SW figures as they do with Iron Men. Star Wars deserves it. :monkey2

Sounds right to me. The superhero fad might go on for a decade, but I can't imagine Iron Man staying popular for 5 more movies.
There is chance though they keep hopping from one superhero movie license to the next and leave Star Wars in the dust.

In the meantime I am happy with SS's OT helmeted and alien figures.

I saw that, but this is how I interpreted it. If they were actually negotiating a license and if they actually had a licensed figure about to launch "very soon," they wouldn't be talking about either.

It would be great to see Hot Toys pull through with another SW character, but there's just been far too much lip service and shifty talking about it over the past two years to actually care about it. So if/when something shows up, it'll just be a surprise to anyone not following the drama.

Besides that, I'm in the camp that thinks producing a PT character is a waste of time for HT at this stage in the game.

In all fairness Luke doesn't really have the most interesting outfits. We have the farmhouse outfit and the Jedi outfit from ROTJ and both are about as interesting as the Bespin outfit, which is not very.:lol I like Bespin over those two though. The only other option is X-Wing, Snowspeeder or Hoth which would be awesome but I don't see those as a first release type of figure. Besides, they can only do figures SSC produced first, right?

Well, I cant knock them for making a ton of Iron Men. Strike while the iron is hot, I always say. SW is pretty cold to lukewarm right now, so the fact that their resources are not utilized toward it makes sense, but damn sure wish it wasnt this way. Hopefully we get to see something more soon.

All of Luke's outfits are iconic to me. But I would have preferred the Tatooine outfit (as I find that one the most iconic) before the Bespin outfit. Actually: Tatooine > Jedi > X-Wing > Hoth > Bespin > Endor.

I of course like all his outfits through the films too, but I'd instantly put Bespin at the top.

Not only does that look resonate the most with me as a fan of Luke's journey, but he wore it at the most poignant time in the OT; when he started coming into his own, when he was put through the ringer prematurely - & surrounded by all the other iconic places & situations in ESB, it's in a category all it's own. :cool:

I'm not saying you're wrong, it sure is an iconic outfit and looked much better on film than what Hot Toys recreated. I just prefer the Tatooine outfit, it looks better and is more iconic to me. When I think of Luke I don't think of him in his Bespin outfit, but in his Tatooine outfit.

Sure they've done a great job with it - but the cut, the choice of fabric, the texture, the way the shirt pockets sit & the way HT collars always hug the figure's ears instead of sit on the neck line (XMO Wolverine's leather jacket :lol) - yeah.

It's possible though, to get Luke's collar to sit right, you've just gotta beat it into submission. :lol

It's possible though, to get Luke's collar to sit right, you've just gotta beat it into submission. :lol

The choice of fabric was the biggest disappointment to me. The proto fabric was much better and finer. We ended up with a high end sack cloth. Rather than sharp tailored cream fabric. IMO.

This is one of those reasons why I'd love to see a 1/4th scale Luke Skywalker (among other SW characters). A bigger scale allows for more accurate and detailed clothing.

Yeah, 1/6 scale definitely has it's limitations - but that said, HT do a damn fine job anyway really. :rock

I was chatting about this with some chaps in the Terminator threads a little while ago. The difference in tailoring between the DX10 Arnold & the EB T-800 is pretty obvious, so that's an example. I really have no interest in 1/4 scale, but if HT started doing quality SW stuff.. good god. :panic: :thud: :lol

I'd have to at least consider Luke or Vader. :)

I do agree with HT 1/6 being awesome as it is, but 1/4 really takes it to the next level. The EB T-800 BD is a perfect example of that as you say. I used to be anti-quarter scale as well. Since for one reason I didn't want to have different scales in my collection, but once you own one of those high-end 1/4 figures, you'll change your mind.

Vader, Luke and add to that Anakin (you know me) would definitely be on my most wanted list of high-end 1/4 figures.

10-14-2013, 01:58 AM
Which outfit? :lol

In all fairness Luke doesn't really have the most interesting outfits. We have the farmhouse outfit and the Jedi outfit from ROTJ and both are about as interesting as the Bespin outfit, which is not very.:lol I like Bespin over those two though. The only other option is X-Wing, Snowspeeder or Hoth which would be awesome but I don't see those as a first release type of figure. Besides, they can only do figures SSC produced first, right?

Dude - come on.. :lol

The Bespin outfit is iconic.

By you saying what you've posted, you don't seem to realize that enough.

Besides - as mentioned, NONE of his outfits are razzle dazzle anyway - & they're not meant to be.

It's Luke ****ing Skywalker.

Man.. :slap :lol

Farmboy, Pilot and Jedi are the only Iconic Luke outfits for me. :lol
Bespin outfit feels like something Navy/Air Force support staff wear.

Then again, it all boils down to personal aesthetic preference :lol

Yeah I'm not a big fan either. Especially of their older and human 1/6 figures. I did however buy Boba Fett, Sandtrooper DX, Battle Droids 2-pack and I have Vader and Grievous on PO. I did buy their Obi-Wan TPM but I do not like it as much as the Helmeted/droid figures. A custom headsculpt is the only thing that could save it imo. It's boxed right now..

This time I'll wait and see the final product for the Hoth Han & Luke figures before I pre-order.

Oh and I might get my first SSC statue, the Darth Vader mythos, if I can find it for a decent price in the EU (Expensive Union). :lol

Sandtrooper DX..
Que?? You mean like an exclusive or something? I had the Corporal - thought I'd give it a chance, but got rid of it a few months after I bought it. Didn't like the thing one bit; wonky helmet / armour, garbage backpack strap design.. ehh.

The Malgus & Grievous figures look really good so far - but again, care factor zero. :lol

Anyway! I think once HT pull their finger out, their DX Anakin could really be a thing of beauty. I've got two 1/6 ROTS figure choices to make going forward; one I'd like to be a nice Kashyyyk clone, & the other could be Anakin. Just depends on what it comes with & the overall quality / price etc.

Yeah I don't care much for Malgus either.. tried to play that game but it was boring as hell. Nice figure though.

If HT's Anakin is up there with their new Wolverine figure in terms of likeness it's gonna be a homerun. That's what I'm hoping for. But it will be better than the SSC version guaranteed. The kashyyyk clonetrooper is most likely something SSC would release if they haven't already? :dunno

VintijDroidGutzz
10-14-2013, 05:11 AM
Let us never speak of the SSC Anakin in this thread again. :monkey4 :lol

As well as the 42nd, I really want a nice Biker Scout too, but I'm not into same-y looking set ups, so I don't know. SSC make good troops generally, so my preference would naturally go to the OT guys first. It depends what SSC make first - or if they make both, which of the two is a better overall figure.

HT really have a great opportunity with Anakin though, to fully deck the set out. Two PERS heads, two outfits (pre / post Mustafar duel), lava miner platform as a DX base, different arm / glove attachments - basically a mirror of the Luke set essentially.

It could be awesome. :)

Anakin is a great character (Dracula needs no convincing :lol), so this set should really be a packed one - or it's thumbs down from me. If they include what I've mentioned, I dare say I'll buy it without hesitation.

As for the upcoming SSC Vader - it's your call, but I'd almost guarantee there'll be a far better one for similar money on the market within the next two years.. if you can wait that long. :lol

If you're going this far with a prediction, who will release it? You can be absolutely guaranteed (no almost about it) there won't be one from SSC within two years. And I can't think of anyone who has or has ever had an LFL license that would be able to release anything "better." And this is without so much as seeing the SSC version in-hand. I think most of the criticizing from people who did not see it at SDCC is bonkers.

Well, sure - I'm speculating. Medicom's already got another one out which is meh, Marmit's never gonna happen, & HT are just stalling in general at best, right now. However, none of the SSC Vader pics look good to me.

My feeling though, is that with the new SW trilogy on the horizon, there are definitely - at the very least, conversations being held, deals being made, & plans being carved out regarding 1/6 merchandising leading up to the films' release. We see people mention contractual trivia type info here & there - but what do us lay folk really know?

Forgive me if someone in the actual 'know' has declared something as fact - but other than SSC & Medicom having their own respective 1/6 licenses - & HT subbing, there's a lot going on that we're just not privy to out there. :huh

You can blame me for any delays. I sold my SS Anakin in anticipation of this figure, thereby endangering its release. Much like how I sold my Hasbro 1/6 R2, 3PO, Chewbacca, and Biker Scout, and when SS found out about it, they removed these figures from the pipeline.

That is correct. Hasbro has EXCLUSIVE rights to Star wars toys. Anyone wanting to make anything as got to go through them.

So HT getting the rights to make something hinges on them getting the liscense AWAY from medicom.

which they're working on, as they've become the official asian importer for hasbro productsa while back.

That's the thing; by the nature of the Luke character, he's got longevity no matter his age. The other two - while important enough, aren't the same in that way.. well I guess Leia too yes, to a slightly lesser extent though.

If I was going to set up a 'New Trilogy' Detolf (:lol), I'd definitely have Master Luke & perhaps one or two other figures that define the series for me - plus a key vehicle.

HT really have a great opportunity with Anakin though, to fully deck the set out. Two PERS heads, two outfits (pre / post Mustafar duel), lava miner platform as a DX base, different arm / glove attachments - basically a mirror of the Luke set essentially.

I like aspects of the PT - but what could've been a truly complimentary trilogy, turned into glorified filler with bits of sparkle. The saga will always be centered around Luke Skywalker as far as I'm concerned.

That said - this could be one of HT best figures if handled properly. A DX set like Bespin Luke would allow for all the deserved inclusions; pre / post Mustafar duel figures, all the arm attachments, 'Sith' PERS for bad Anakin, environment piece (lava miner platform) - & as a possible exclusive, either charred / severed forearm & head attachments, or Dooku's lightsaber. :duff

As a EX they can throw in that little flying droid or whatever it was that watches Obi and Anakin fight for a second. Isn't Chan a huge Star Wars fan? I would have thought we would have seen at least a few more Star Wars characters frequently.
