No doubt, I would like to see Boba Fett in Sideshow 12 inch asap...

As much as I love Boba Fett, I am anxious to see what Sideshow can do with the facial sculpts of the helmet-less characters. Also, I have two 12" Boba Fetts staring at me as I write this, and while Sideshow's would certainly be the best of them all, I am less excited for that than I am the 1/4 scale- which will be unique and unlike anything I currently own. Of course, my bank account is MUCH more excited about the 12" figures...

You don't have any money now Screamingmetal. If they only make 1/6 of those, you better go to the quack for some anti-depressants.

:lol
Right, I forgot.
I shortened the list to ones I'd like First (within a few Years). Those where the ones I'd like over the life of the line :bonk
Hopefully Sideshow won't release them all at once. :x

My list of must-have characters before the end of the line:

Eeth Koth
Sabé (Battle & Travel)
Aayla Secura
ROTS Yoda
Quinlan Vos
General Grievous
Shaak Ti
TPM Pre-Senate Amidala
Rabé (Theed & Senate)
Mace Windu
Lord Maul
Lord Sidious
Lord Tyrannus

Essentially, any Jedi or Sith they release, I'll be all over. Aside from a few rare exceptions, I doubt I'll pick up any OT characters. Obviously some of my choices will be made at some point (Yoda, the Sith), but I fear my top three (Koth, Sabé, Aayla) may never be brought up for consideration. Here's hoping though...

so if i called them ponda baba and momaw nadon you'd know who i was referring to?:lol

hairlesswookiee
07-18-2005, 02:26 PM
in 2006 any particular order:
darth maul
qi gon jinn
mace windu (please God let him be first!!!)
anakin (would like to see him as a jedi knight first)
boba fett



please dont flame but i hope they dont come out with much more than 5 a year just because right now i cant afford more than that. anymore than that would drive me :banana :banana because then i would have to pick and choose rather than try to get the entire line. and lets not forget about other lines: gentle giant,kotobukiya, medicom(they keep getting better with each release)

Can't really add much to what has already been listed.

I would definitely like to see a ROTJ set with Jedi Luke, Lea in Boush Disguise, Lando in disguise, Gammorean Guard, and ROTJ Boba. I leave out Slave Leia because all the exposed joints would detract from the figure.

From EU I would also like Aurra Sing in addition to the ones most everyone else has listed.

screamingmetal
07-18-2005, 03:39 PM
I feel that Darth Kered's list is probably what we can expect in the first group of figures (not including EU which I think will be Mara Jade). Unless they go the route of starting with either the prequels or OT.

Tarkin & Dooku

Come on, guys. Sideshow is the *monster* company. We need Peter Cushing and Christoper Lee pronto! ;)

PS-- any thoughts on SSC doing droids? Will it happen?

dstephan
07-18-2005, 09:55 PM
I hope they save the droids for down the line a bit. The Hasbro ones aren't as bad as any of the other figures.

And I'd hope they'd do at least 10 a year. Or wouldn't it be cool to have a subscription program with one a month? Just like Columbia House you get a new Star Wars character every month whether you order it or not!

Oxbeard
07-19-2005, 03:19 AM
Not a bad idea at all Dave. I could go for that. Maybe have the figure automatically show up in your account, and you have so many days prior to shipping to cancel if you don't want that particular figure. Othewise it ships automatically.

darthrage
07-19-2005, 07:16 AM
You know Dave someone mentioned that in the chat (was it you?) love the idea.
There are some great ideas here. I really can't wait to see what sideshow comes up with.

dstephan
07-19-2005, 11:30 AM
I can't take credit for the subscription idea - I think it wa Toy Godd that mentioned it at SDCC?

As for my list - I'm more about the main characters and as disappointed as I was with the PT (except ROTS) I'd buy all the figures from those films as well as the OT.

I'd like to see sooner rather than later:

Darth Vader
Slave Leia - (although the joints are troubling)
Jedi Luke
Arena Padme
ROTS Obi-wan
ROTS Dark Anakin
Han Solo
ANH Leia
Chewie (fur suit please)
Mace Windu
Boba Fett
Yoda (ROTS)
Dooku
Obi Alec
Biggs (pilot)
Ceremony Leia
Hoth Leia
Hoth Luke
Hoth Han
Bespin Luke (detachable hand of course)
Emperor
Maul
Greivous
various Clone, Storm troopers

Of course I'd buy all the rest, but these are the ones I want more.

Gazmog

The following would be great openers for Sideshow, and the ones I would most like of all:

Darth Vader
Stormtrooper
Boba Fett
Clone trooper (white) - Ep2 or 3
Anakin (Mustafar)
Battle droid
Luke Jedi Knight
Snowtrooper
Yoda (ESB)
Obi-Wan (ANH)
Jango Fett
Sandtrooper Squad Leader
Emperor Palpatine & a Royal Guard
Gamorrean Guard
Weequay
Darth Maul
Scout Trooper

That's a very good list Gaz. I think the ones that would be the most interested in are those that could never be made into 1/4 pieces, due to the fact that they are minor characters in the films. My favorite SW action figures when I was a kid were the cantina aliens (Hammerhead, Snaggletooth, Greedo) and the aliens in Jabba's palace (Gammorrean (sp?) Guard, Weequay, Bib Fortuna).

I love the Star Wars aliens, and I really hope that at least 1 or 2 makes it into 1/4 scale. Greedo and Admiral Ackbar Sideshow Exclusives with a 500 ES would be great! :rock

88th division
07-23-2005, 06:51 PM
Darth Vader
Stormtrooper
Darth Maul
Han Solo
Chewbacca
C-3PO
R2-D2
Luke Skywalker (ANH)
Yoda
Mace Windu
Boba Fett

AND ANYONE ELSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would love to see a "Jedi" line, featuring EVERY Jedi we've seen on screen. ALL of em. The Council, The Arena Battle, Clone Wars, and so on.

And how about releasing them chronologically.
The very first figures would be Qui Gon and Apprentice Obi-wan, the final figure would be ROTJ Luke.

dstephan
07-24-2005, 12:55 PM
NOOOOOO! on the chronological order. All the PT characters before ANY OT? That would be a way to kill the line pretty darn quick.

I hope they mix them up but heavily lean to the OT and also mix in the lesser characters with variants of the main characters.

I'd also like to see more body types. Qui-gon, Anakin and Obi-wan shouldn't all be the same height.

screamingmetal
07-24-2005, 02:18 PM
I agree with Dave, chronological order would doom the line. A mix of OT and PT should be the mandate. No OT characters within the first group of releases would piss off a lot of PT haters and they'd protest Sideshow.
I also think that repeat characters in different out fits (Buffy, Spike, etc..) should be spaced out much thinner over the line. I wouldn't want all versions of luke, Obi-Wan, Padme, within the first three years. spaced out over ten years or so would be a better plan.

Lembas Eater
07-24-2005, 03:35 PM
I did mean ONLY for the Jedi.

dstephan
07-24-2005, 03:46 PM
Still, not seeing Jedi Luke for some years would be rather disappointing. I'd rather have him than a just about any other Jedi.

Viking28
07-24-2005, 06:29 PM
We need a Jedi Luke right away, and also a Episode III Anakin.

Lembas Eater
07-25-2005, 11:04 AM
Ok, I cry uncle, ROTJ Luke THEN the Jedi line!

screamingmetal
07-25-2005, 02:10 PM
I've been thinking, assuming that Sideshow's license expires with the Hasbro license (2018,2013 or something) how long will Sideshow be making Star Wars figures 1/6? Would it go on if successful until 2018 or something? How far into the future has Sideshow planed the license?

dstephan
07-25-2005, 02:14 PM
That would be great if it does extend the life of the Hasbro license. But if it is shorter I'd hate to have Hasbro see that 12" can be successful and decide to take it back. But at the edition sizes that SSC is talking about it's probably not worth it to Hasbro.

Sideshow's going to do their own poll too though. I'm afraid I don't know enough about the EU to make an educated choice.

Fubeca
07-26-2005, 08:49 AM
Yeah but the 12" line hasbro did were at like $25, can SSC keep the prices down for Wally?

dstephan
07-26-2005, 09:11 AM
No Walmart, Target or any other outlet like that (probably). SSC said these will be distributed just like all their other product and at the same edition sizes.

But I guess if Wally or Target want them....anything is possible.
