Yeah, you can't deny the Court of the dead line looks unique. Too bad I don't have the money or funds to start collecting these.

I believe Xiall is a she.

What I cant get past here, though, is the puppy-dog nose. This reminds me of a kid in a Halloween dog costume.... awaiting more pix with interest. :wink1:

...Do these bases light up, do you think? On the SSC site, Red Death's base appears to light up.

In one of the threads (maybe statue forum?) somebody had a query on one of the other pieces lighting up and the Rep said no. I think none of these will have light ups although I don't think it would be that hard to do.

Very cool pieces and have certainly perked my interest, in something that isn't really my "thing" usually.

Red Death's base lights up. It flickers like there's a flame burning beneath him.

Your not alone my Friend, it was for myself confusing in the beginning putting the sculpt with the as the name and Yes the Detail is SICK as for myself The Queen of the Dead Pre-Ordered day one, Deaths Siren Pre-Ordered, Kier and Cleopsis are a must and Xiall is still whispering to me, some of the others are being debated

That blue spirit she is conjuring is the Queen of the Dead...according to the pseudo-comic, they are supposed to be at war, being in different factions ans everything...must be some kind of warfare hex!

I want this one for sure. I think barring QC sucking horribly, I will be day 1 PO for most of this line. I think the Queen and Red death are actually the most boring of the whole line. The new ones are extremely impressive.

Xiall and the arbiter of bone are definately 2 pieces that will be day one preorders from me. I would get demithyle as well but im not agreeing with the reissue of him. I dont care if its a different sculpt or not. Sorry not trying to cause a debate we all have our own opinions.

But here's the thing: If this line does well - and I think it will - there are likely to be multiple releases for each character. We might get different versions of all of these characters, not just Demithyle.

Then what?

That's an awesome idea Ramatuelle!!! But makes me hestitant now which character I should focus on! ;)

wierzbowski
08-20-2014, 10:06 AM
I myself would be fine with that idea because thats not a bad idea and wont be a marked decision. Demithyle the original was a standalone piece in sheer scale and design. Alot passed on it due to price and the actual piece being more macabre. Now that cotd is becoming big with all these new pieces alot of people who passed on the original are now crying and want it. If cotd was a smaller project and not as out of proporrion as its become but instead stayed a smaller niche market no one would care. You dont see anyone crying for another jack the ripper. I understand people want him to complete the collection and what not but the original outcry was to reproduce the original... Sideshow said okay but now hell fit the lineup. It just seems to be more or less catering to those who werent interested when it wasnt as popular. Its neither here nor there amd my thoughts shouldnt affect others. But im standing my ground and not buying it.

grphyx1
08-20-2014, 10:22 AM
I think the line will do well, I just don't think we'll see numbers higher than the Queen. She's at 3,000 and still not sold out. I'm guessing once the hype dies down and reality sets in on how much space these babies are gonna take up, and how long the line will take to finish, then the people screaming "must have" will change their tune a bit to "I'll wait for in hand pics".

That being said, i'm obsessed with Xiall.

I think everything about the statue is perfect except the teeth showing along her jawline. Looking at the art print, it looks like her cheeks are emaciated, but not showing the teeth. I wish they would have gone that route on the statue.

As I missed out on all the other premium art prints (well, I have Death on WL but seriously, I doubt there's a Chance he'll convert), I used my Chance to get Xiall.
Don't know if I'm going to get her statue, but the print Looks amazing.

I only joined in December and missed out pretty much of the beginning of COTD, could somebody please get me an update which prints are already gone?
I know of Death, QOTD and Kier. Did Gallevarbe/Siren already have her print? That's one I would be interested in.

Xenoburger_
01-19-2015, 03:53 PM
No Gallevarbe print yet. Only the ones you've listed.

First was Kier, second was Queen, third Death, and Xiall is the fourth (and still in-stock).

Is there an order I am not aware of?

I would prefer that they have less of an overt bunion, but I don't mind the insta-high-heel look of Kier's feet. Beats every other female having BARE feet, even Valkyries whom you'd think would be wearing footwear if only to keep their feet out of the snow. But what do I know!

If Gallevarbe had feet, they'd be bare too. Chicks be slummin' over there in the afterlife.

Been waiting for so long I don't know if this still interests me. Don't get me wrong, she's a stunning statue with outstanding detail but after the almost endless wait for Death's Siren and Kier I'm hesitant to order this and maybe wait another 2 years for her to be released and see if I can get a sweet discount.

And then when collectors remember the 23 inch lord darkness premium format , that had insane details, amazing clothing and weathering, swap out hands, and oh yeah was only what $350 ,.. hahaha this piece in the end after taxes and shipping will cost you almost $700. And i fear for the overseas collectors,.. you may end up paying close to $1000 for this piece. It looks stunning in proto pics,... but not $600 stunning. Especially when you know the version that arrives will not even be $400 stunning hahahaha. Welp sideshow you have killed your own line. way to go

I've never hoped I'd win a Sideshow contest more than I do right now. Because unless I win that or they cut the price after it sits on the shelf for a while...no way I'll be able to pick this one up.

So sad... :( Kier is going to be so lonely....

I mean I guess I can put Red Sonja next to her...or...should I cancel Red Sonja for Xiall?

Idk what to do anymore everybody!!!

I am speechless, to kill a line to greed, a 1/4 scale statue that has nothing more than the other, costing much less, I increase for the price of $ 200, these are crazy, :cuckoo: they do not realize what they are doing, I love the whole line but now that sell gold, are cotretto to retire with just preorders moderately priced made to date and that Queen Gallevarbe-Red Death and Kier, after them I close, too much money, waited a long time the preorder Cleopsis, but since Ms. Sideshow has well thought of firing at random prices, I think saving my 400 euro for another, I'm really disgusted by this policy market that now almost all the companies are striving!

Congratulations Sideshow good strategy to send the first place its line !! :clap :cuckoo:

I don't think so judging by the last few pages of the thread. Bunch of us want her...but not for that price.

I think a lot of us are going to let her sit in SS's warehouse until they come down on the price.

So far, I haven't seen anyone here say that they've pre-ordered her. Lot of people said they wouldn't be after the price was revealed yesterday.

Its definately a piece i would love to own. Do not get me wrong. But its not a line i intend to buy anything else from. And that price, to me is ludicrous. If it was $450 i would have preordered it. Even at $500. I would have just used the 10% off. But not at $600, without shipping. And correct me if im wrong. I got the 10% off coupon like 2 years ago for the cotd pieces,.. if i recall correctly didnt sideshow say it could only be used on pieces that were already up for preorder at that time, not future cotd pieces ??. My whole intention was saving it for xiall but then after reading that i just put it to the wayside. Unless sideshow drops the price i feel as if it will stay in their warehouse.

You can use the 10% off on this piece. I agree the price is too high but I really like this line so I've pre-ordered her with the 10% off code. although there are a couple that I don't really have an interest in most of these cotd statues are really unique.

Even if I have to pay more...I'll save the frustration of getting something I don't like and have to deal with reselling it.

It's weird because I planned on getting maybe 4 of these. ...but it's just like they didn't know how to really handle what they created.

This will be a learning experience for them I think. I get the LOADED figures might have been $899 etc..even 1k or a bit more. This looks like a $400-450 piece...if it had a cool switch out...add $100.

I don't understand people.

Some people complain that the quality of the paint job on the statues will never be so good for the price of 399 But you buy a custom painted statue for 1000 and more because it's "special" and someone put a lot of work into it.
Some people buy an OOP statue for double the money
Some people buy a custom made head for the price of a full statue
you say that for statues to look like the prototype they need to be of a higher cost.

And now you get one at a higher cost, could mean it's more detailed and closer to prototype, yet all you do is complain about how expansive it is....

That's really the point.

Truth is that nowhere it's stated that the higher price point corresponds to higher quality, in fact I still see the "prototype shown" disclaimer on the website. If this is the case, they should put a disclaimer like "this statue is being made to achieve prototype quality". I'd rather pay 1000$ for a custom done in the 50-100 pieces and painted by someone really skillful than 600$ for a mass produced piece that is going to be painted in the same factories where everything else is painted with the usual hit and miss quality.
You know, like that $800 Godzilla maquette that came with "prototype quality"... basically unpainted.

Pinhead is 22 inches tall with a 1inch base that weighs about 5-6 pounds. He weighs 12lbs. Xiall is 26 inches tall with a base that appears to be about 3 inches high so i would assume roughly 5lbs as well. Yet she has her little metal staff and what not, but she also weighs 12lbs. I fear people may have bought themselves a pvc xiall. And i hope its not the case. And sideshow is not responding to whether she is or is not. And it keeps getting deleted.

And when I say "these" I mean being very selective over a period of time I will grab statues and not even necessarily from Sideshow of things that turned out great and look awesome in person. I'll save money and frustration in the long run dropping an extra few hundred dollars knowing that what I'm getting, is what I want.

Sideshow's explanation for the $200 increase on this PF.





Details, details and more details really. Detailed paint application, detailed sculpt elements for the entire piece, and the mixed media elements all add up to a pricey piece to have produced. The Court of the Dead items, even though unlicensed, come back consistently with much higher costs involved than many of the licensed items due to all the details that are involved with them. Plus it really costs more and more to manufacture sixth scale, statues, busts, life-size figures, and so on all the time. If Oglaviel were released today for Pre-Order the cost to produce him would be so much, much higher then it was when he was initially released for Pre-Order and as such his retail price would have been far higher as well.

It has no other purpose and the majority of friends and family think I am mad for paying over £50 for a 'statue'.

This piece looks kind of plain imo compared to the others. If it was consider a reg PF it would seem more fitting. Looks very simple and not much parts for this. Don't get me wrong I love the sculpt. I'm just saying to me it looks more like what you would get in a reg PF. Even her height seems more like a reg PF except the base and spear props this much higher in height.

I agree. I really like this line...and I want it to succeed for them... and also for the artists who worked on this and created these pieces.

it's VERY cool to see a company with all these big licenses do what Sideshow is doing with Court of the Dead.
of course at the end of the day they will make money./....but trust me..it's probably much easier to just do licensed properties that are already successful rather than to take a leap with something original...and in the horror genre no less.

so I tip my hat to them for that/

Some might have to sneak into the kids college fund and spend it all on this Line. Just don't tell the wife until the kids go to college that something had happen. At least this way there will be monthly money coming to survive this entire line. Maybe the wife will be ok with it by telling her years down the road it's a investment to buy the entire line to resell for triple to help the kids? It may work?

Exactly. Never happened and never will, if anything Sideshow will cut production and still make their good profit, but not going to lower the price. What you're referring to might be people talking about picking these characters down the road for cheaper than retail from Ebay or private sales, entirely possible since these characters are not really in demand and being so pricey to start for makes it really hard for them to hold their value. Especially when other 10 or so are already planned, it's not like there won't be another undead chick made. You miss out on this and years from now you still will be able to buy queen of the dead, siren, kier, cleopsis or whoelse at retail. It's not like you're missing out on Darth Thalon and there won't be another half naked Sith chick in the market for a decade, so to say.

I think maybe they were talking about them putting it on sale some long while after release to get rid of whatever they've got left lying around. But I've made peace with my decision-- the payment plan helps dull the sting.

Besides, I absolutely love this design, and if I bought it some time down the line, I'd have to throw down however-many hundreds all at once. Though I'm sure I will look it up on eBay 3 years from now and still feel bad if folks end up selling it for less. But not as bad as I feel when I look up things I didn't buy when they came out and now they're over $1k SHAAAAAAK TIIII!

Yeah I had seen that. Made me decide to save my money and put it towards one of the Conan statues being offered soon by Chronicle and PCS. Any ES over 1,000 for the COTD is too high.

Yeh, I don't get their logic on these Cotd edition sizes.. 2000ES @ $600.. this one will be around for ages even tho It's prob my favourite one so far.

I think this is the reason I'm having such a strong reaction. She was the only one I really wanted to get. $600 for her and then the big difference in price of Cleopsis, who in my opinion has more intricate sculpting, just didn't sit well with me. But it's their business and they are entitled to do whatever they wish.

logic is there ! Less ES.. higher price.. = Higher ES lower price ... BUT .. less work and less labor, material costs..etc.. if they do it with Less ES but higher Price.

My last payment was supposed to take place in mid-January so I changed it to pay the full amount as soon as possible. If Xiall is coming in in a couple of weeks there's no way I'm waiting another month and a half!

Picked Xiall up from FedEx today. She's a beauty. Wish her scroll actually said something intelligible instead of just random and backward characters of dead script. Aside from that I have zero complaints. At least the script on the base is real. So many neat textures and details to pick out. Her bustle takes up a lot of space, flowing well beyond the circumference of the base.

got mine out of the box and this has happened. problem is, i got the statue from a store in my area, not from sideshow, so i don't know what to do about it. i contacted the place where i got it from and they said they'd contact somoene about it, but until then i'm kinda in limbo on this one. a shame, too, it's such a nice piece.

That sucks, rhys. My LCBS opens up any statues or 1/6 figures they sell and inspects them with the buyer before sale and makes you sign a little note that you've inspected it and accept it as is. I think it's a pretty good policy.

Hopefully you can get the hand with the scroll replaced. good thing it is joined at the wrist. Let us know how this plays out.

yea thats gonna be a tough one to fix since the hand is holding up the scroll... I dont know why they wouldnt have replacement parts for this particular piece months ago, but the 20% refund is a nice chunk of money back anyways... still sucks though, its gonna be a tough fix.
