Thought.

He will be a 2 -in- one with a ROTS Vader.

He's being held back for sideshow to release their vader first.

That would blow my mind, but I don't know if they'd do that with SSC doing a Vader. You never know.

Also - I doubt they'd do a PT Vader over THE Vader, first.

Chan's gone on record as being a big OT fan, so I'm assuming if they were doing Vader at some point, it'd be an OT one for sure.

2 in 1 Anakin set - like Bespin Luke, seems the most plausible at this stage. :lecture

Again, wasn't it said that those spaghetti arms were not on the ROTJ Vader but the ANH Vader?

you going to do any castings in semi-transucent flesh resin?
Or JUST white?

That actually is in flesh tone resin. But the tint is not really that strong. This resin is bright white If u cast it before tinted.

I can do bright white , Flesh Tone or Grey-dark and light.

But at the end of the day it can be purple cause your gonna paint over it right?

Regards

lerath666
12-05-2013, 10:30 AM
well, transparent flesh resin dosn't need as much paint if its done right.

This is the process currently done by hot toys.

Similar things were done with the Custom Locke in the LOST thread.

Yea The thing is hot toys don't cast in resin they use a pvc witch im sure i could get my hands but I thinks its a mute conversation none of the customizers and painters use those techniques!

lerath666
12-05-2013, 01:28 PM
I would. I'd prefer it actualy. and it makes the finished product look about 1000 times better than most repaints.

Basicly, alot of people don't use it, becuase the option is not offered.

prety sure it was Andy B who was doing it with his lost John Locke sculpt. end piece looked AMAZING.

Edit: I'm right, but the pictures are no longer there. Shot andy a message to see if i can get pictures. Trust me, it's a method that is well worth doing.

Could the delay be because the Luke figure didn't sell as well as they expected? Still a ton left at BBTS, and ebay prices are the same as retail, or even slightly lower. Meanwhile the 10,000'th tony stark figure (Now in cowboy outfit!) will probably sell out in a couple of hours, so of course they'll make more.

I think being a $300 two pack hurts it. Not everyone wants a clean and damged.

A single figure with some accessoried for $200 would have done well.

That and prolly the market for high end Star Wars figures isn't that big.

The thing is that the younger Star Wars fans that came onto the scene around the PT time are excited for an EP 3 Anakin.

Sure Han is more iconic to us who were there in the 70's but I see why there is a buzz around Anakin. EP 3 saved the PT.

I'd buy both Anakin and Han if HT do them justice.

The PT haters don't get that we get it, get it? It's a shame really. It's not like we haven't heard it all before. But you can never bash the PT enough! :slap I've even blocked a couple of users just because they keep repeating the BS over and over again. It just gets tiresome. If I wanted to hear anti-PT whining I'd watch the RLM "reviews". :lol

It's almost as if these haters have some kind of deep complicated psychological issue causing them to want to speak out as much and often as they do. As if they were truly traumatized by the PT. :lol I mean, 14-8 years has passed and they pretend as if they just watched the movies today!

I don't mind people disliking movies that I love, but it's becoming a broken record that just repeats itself that should've died out a long time ago. I get that SW has millions of fans and there are bound to be a couple of thousands if not hundred thousand haters out there, but it's so annoying trying to be a fan of the PT when there is constantly someone whining in the corner.

Maybe someone can create a thread on this forum where people can specifically talk **** about the PT, have their little therapy group sessions and claim their opinions as facts? Then maybe these PT figure threads can be spared from some of it? :lol Just a thought. For now, the ignore function will work.

Anywayz... I doubt this figure will be announced within this year. I bought Darren's custom Anakin headsculpt which will satisfy me for now until HT hopefully releases their version, still need to find a body for it though.

I don't hate the PT - in fact those that have noticed know that I'm a fan. :)

That said - there's absolutely zero that's iconic about the PT.. true story. :huh

'Iconic' is waaaay overused and misused on this forum.

LOL, they already made a Clone Wars

Anakin and it went over about as well as a wet fart in church.
Not talking about how he looks, I'm talking about how the character was presented, and how he was given life through the performance of the voice actor. Hayden didn't have alot to work with, but the job he did with what he had was HORRIBLE.

Hence, Clone wars version is the better Anakin ( looks aside)



Hayden's Stunt Double

NO sir, This is Hayden's stund double. It's the same guy in every movie he does.

Hayden's ok. :lol

Uncle George definitely contributed to his wooden performance in a big way though, make no mistake. :lecture

Anyway - I don't expect any real news on this supposed release any time soon. I imagine they'll want to continue with the OT theme now - at least for the next figure anyway, because there's been too much water under the bridge to belatedly channel their focus on something that won't be as well received.

When the next film starts creating a buzz again, they'll likely ride the wave then.. after they've used the time to wrestle a sweet position for themselves in the SW market. :lol

Howard Confirmed over a year ago that the next figure to Be released was gonna Be a PT anakin. And that This would Be followed By A Han who would then be followed by another PT Character, Likely Padme.

Given the restrictions placed on Hot toys BY sideshow in regards to this line, the ONLY anakin it CAN be ( unless Sideshow has no intention of producing a kid anakin) is ROTS Anakin.

Negative. The toy liscensing dosn't work that way.

HASBRO has EXCLUSIVE Liscensing Rights to All toys of any flavor Regarding Star Wars ( and several other properties bundled togethor now that Disney owns LFL) Untill AT LEAST 2020.

It's also worth noting that just to be safe, this past July When hasbro extended their Liscense to 2020, they put in specific options to include the new, pending trilogy.

Hasbro Sub-let's the 1/6th Liscense to Sideshow for a cut of their profits ( this is partly why SW figures are as expensive as they are. Sideshow is paying Lucasfilm/Disney AND hasbro) For the "Western Market"

Hasbro has Sub-let the 1/6th lease to Medicom as an "Asian Market" Liscense. Treating the "Asian Market" as a Different Liscense.

Sideshow, in turn, Has a partnership with Hot toys where they "Sub Let" a "Deluxe Figure Line" to Hot toys, with some restrictions placed on what HT can make.

Super short Version, is Hot toys can only make figures that Sideshow either

A) HAs Already made
B) Has NO intention of EVER making
C) Will not make any time soon

As much Star Wars Merch as Sideshow Makes, there is NO REASON that Hasbro would revoke that liscense From Sideshow, as It's Basicly FREE MONEY for hasbro.

They do Virtualy NO work, and collect a check on Every piece Sideshow produces.


ADDITIONALY Becuase of HT Geographical location, they're limited by the "asian Market" thingy Hasbro Created.
Hot toys Would need to go after the Liscense held by Medicom.

NOW THAT SAID, it IS worth noting that Hot toys HAS been cozying up to Hasbro lately. within the past Year, they have become the Official importer and distributor of Hasbro Products in Asia.

The expectation of this is that it's building to hot toys trying to take that Medicom Liscense for themselves.

IF THAT HAPPENS, THEN they can move out from under the Sideshow restrictions.

Wouldn't be surprised if they are waiting out the license for some new arrangement with Disney to bypass Sideshow....then it'll take off with "Iron Man" speed and we'll the Sixth-Scale market be flooded with multiple versions of Episode VII characters at $300+ a pop....and not a classic or prequel character in sight (oh wait...those will be the deluxe HT SW figures at $400+ a pop...)

To be fair to Howard Chan, we only got a translated version of the interview.
Perhaps a "maybe" was lost in the translation of his statement about announcing something SW in 2013.

Why is that so hard? Rather than Howard Chan who keeps stringing this along when he is asked about it.
They had this big announcement that this line was happening and made a big splash with the first release so how can they expecting people to just forget about it by not saying anything.
It's very unprofessional the way they are going about this. Sure people are going to be upset about the line being discontinued but i think it would better for everyone in the long run, rather than in another 5 years asking where the next figure is.

Star Wars is a cash cow, if they had it they'd go crazy you'd imagine.

Par for the HT course. They grab as many licenses or what not as they can and just sit on them. Complete BS.

It is BS but it's also smart. They acquire licenses so there competitors don't. Yeah they aren't making any money on the licenses they are just sitting on but neither are their competitors.

My guess is Hot Toys will only release one or two figures from the both trilogys at the beginning of 2015. Doing so, Hot toys is going the build the hype for the end of 2015. Hot Toys is probably in negotiations for the rights ( Better a deal or some Exclusivity in comparision to the previous movies) of a ton of 1/6 Figures from the New Movies( New Trilogy and Spin Offs).

Yea, I get that. Just sucks for us fans. I do hope they capitalize on the Episode VII hype and overload us with SW goodness.

If Hot Toys do still plan on releasing more Star Wars figures, based on having nothing for so long since DX Luke, Anakin isn't the one they should be making next (maybe if he was made last year it would have been OK). It has to be one of the big fan favourites next.

ANH Han Solo is my most anticipated, going by the HT rumour mill so far.

I don't mind if Anakin gets made first though, because I need time to catch up with other stuff right now. :lol

You mean how would we feel if Star Wars became HT's new Iron Man? I wouldn't mind it as much. I think it would be more justified given how long SW has been around with its level of popularity. Since 1977 for SW VS since 2008 for IM? IM is a ****ing newb.

Was there even any real anouncement yet? At this point I won't be surprised if we won't see an Anakin at all. The new SW movies changed everything imo, with those movies comming it's either release an Anakin before they're here or don't release one at all since Episode VII will get priority (makes sense from a marketing perspective) once it releases.

Nothing. Only a statement by Howard Chan that Anakin was going to be announced by the end of 2013...

NEWSFLASH:

HT Anakin's been canceled. They're doing Darth Maul instead.







If we're going to fantasize about HT's next SW figure, might as well be a character people actually want.

I just can't fathom why anyone wants an 'Anakin' figure? He wasn't a great character, mostly poorly acted, and his 'great tragedy' in transformation was rushed onscreen to say the least. I guess people want him more for what he represents than what he was. Better off, just get Darth Vader.

When it comes to Star Wars I actually look past the acting and try to see it from a more "global" perspective. I want an Anakin figure for his meaning in the story, not for the acting done by the actor.

Hell, IMO Mark Hamill wasn't exactly top notch either but we still all love him (I'm probably going to get hate for this one..)

That's why I said people must want him for what he represents. I'm somewhere in the middle. I don't just look at Star Wars as a toy chest, but I know a lot of people do, especially the younger ones. It has all this neat stuff in it, and when you've seen it a thousand times on DVD or BR you can really get past the acting and, like a song you've heard a hundred times, it may even become pleasing to you.

And you're right, Mark was not the best actor by far; for that matter neither were Carrie nor Harrison back in the day. But I don't think they delivered cringe-worthy dialogue either. Maybe Luke's "Noooooooooo" was as close as it got. But I blame Lucas for the later dialogue mostly. That said, Mark, Carrie and Harry got thru it... I can't say the same for Natalie and Hayden. The two of them are almost unwatchable for me.

That's the reason I want an Ep III Anakin. Before ObiWan f'd him up on Mustafar, he was at his peak as DarthVader:D Aesthetically, I liked his brown outfit/tunic too and I just want an Ep III Anakin next to the new ROTJ Vader figure. If they make an updated Jedi Luke too, that would be the only three SW figures I'd ever need as far as non armored troops/figures go.

Also true. Imo during the fight on Mustafar we really see Darth Vader at his peak.
