Title!

I mean, it has to be during the Halloween event right? That marks like 1.5 months out with no other major events before release...

Toys are out, stickers are out, SHOW ME THE MONEY Sideshow!

SSC have also turned into another chamber of clowns; the PF line has virtually dwindled to a halt, release schedules that are getting worse all the time, and more than anything... increasing prices coupled with falling quality control :slap

Hot Toys are about the only "enjoyable" brand at the moment :(

I'm not trying to be rude, but this is the largest pop culture/movie release in decades. I read an article that showed evidence that the toy lines produced for this movie have been the most desired in history...


It would be a crime to miss this hype. These should have been on preorder 6 months ago and arriving within 2 months of the film. It only makes sense...

Exactly. Other companies had toys ready to hit the shelves that day, due to sideshows format, I understand why they couldn't do that, but atleast up for preorder.

Could it be due to focusing on the Court of the Dead line since they don't pay licensing fees for them? (I have no clue if this is true) hahahah

Sideshow needs the extra time to craft the unnecessarily large 8 inch tall base that the character will be either be ascending up or descending down from. They've got to make sure it won't fit in with the smaller 1" size bases and simple poses that they have been using on the Star Wars PF line since 2005.

This post is sarcasm in case anyone couldn't tell. I'm not a fan of Sideshow's current oversized bases or that they have the characters are climbing on them.

I don't know maybe they don't want to compete with the insane of money people are dropping on HT 1/6 scale. Also maybe the first PFs will be characters not available yet. How many high end collectibles are heroes? Is that because no one has tried to make one or is that due to LFL holding those back? It's easy to blame SS but obviously more I'd going on behind the scenes that we aren't privy to.

I have settled on one prediction.

First PF will most likely be a storm trooper

Or

First PF is Kylo Ren, but they are waiting until release as the premium format may spoil something . Example: switch out robo hand, switch out unmasked head with scars/damage, switch out dual wield hand showing that he may kill someone in the story.

I have no extra information, really just trying to liven up this thread again

It seems like they would at least put one of them up or something...there are a lot of products that have been teased for a long time now....even though Jango and Maul are from the prequals, it probably wouldn't hurt to put them up now with all of the Star Wars hype. I hope that Jango looks good...thinking about getting it as a companion piece to Boba Fett

So much is possible. But I can honestly say that I really have had little info passed along on specifics of what is being worked on in Star Wars land. What I do know is coming down the pipeline in the next 6/8 months and I'm really not at liberty to disclose the exact details of what those items are. I can only say they are original trilogy and new movie related.

At this point for Star Wars, I'm all 1/4 and 1/6 Hot Toys figures. And it's only very few of those that I want. And the way Sideshow is going with Disney's Marvel stuff, I can't see them getting the likeness right for Star Wars. Unless the price really shoots up.

I think it would make most sense to at least show us a reveal or preorder of characters shown to an obvious extent from the trailers for PFs like:

Kylo Ren
Finn
Rey
Stormtrooper


They gotta stay on top of this. They had an amazing opportunity to bring a PF Star-Lord for GOTG, but completely abandoned it. I would have totally bought one.

They have GOT to keep up with the PF line for Force Awakens. If Hot Toys reveals a 1/4" before SS I will commit to a Hot Toys and not wait for Sideshow.

SwiftC
11-28-2015, 01:58 PM
I know they hinted the first two would likely be Kylo and a stormtrooper, but my hope is (perhaps naively) that Sideshow is waiting for the movie to come out to reveal the first PFs because they are characters that are different from what everyone else is offering and haven't been revealed yet. Kylo and stormtroopers are everywhere. Maybe Sideshow's first PF is Snoke or Luke.

Maybe? I don't know. I'm grasping at straws here Sideshow. What the hell are you up to? If the movie is as good as it looks, I'd buy PF's of:

-Kylo Ren
-Stormtrooper
-Han
-Leia
-Rey
-Finn
-Phasma

Hell, even Luke and Snoke assuming I like their designs. What are you guys up to? I'm practically willing to just have my paychecks routed directly to you for the next year. Give me something!

SSAlex says they are trying to get something approved by LucasFilm to have up on the 17th and f it doesn't get approved, it will be "sometime" after the 17th.

While I can appreciate that they need approval and that these things don't always go as planned, would it really have been that hard to make 100% sure to have the approved product ready by the time the movie comes out??? By that, I mean they should have sent the prototype with ample time for any approvals that are required. They have known the release date for a year now. Seriously, it's getting to be ridiculous...

I'm guessing the design is approved or it wouldn't have made it past concept... But yeah, the fact that they are asking weeks before the release is kind of bizarre. If I was Sideshow, this would be an event. I'd be showing the coming soon videos release day/ through out the weekend. With preorders coming the week after release. Maybe show like 4 total to come out over the 2016 year.

After SSAlex's response on the other forum, I am really not expecting anything Star Wars PF related this year TBH. Doesn't sound like anything is ready yet and that they are basically just crossing their fingers that it will be soon.

I just find it amazing that with a week until TFA hits theaters, we're still talking about whether or not we'll get a sneak or pre-order and not about a new product announcement. Talk about killing the hype, something SS does all too well... I guess I'm still bitter about the whole Hobbit debacle ;)

Regardless of any approvals that were required, they should have had this done and dusted by now with 2 or 3 previews. Oh well, at least we know FOR SURE that we'll be getting a Royal Guard in 1/4!

Movie licenses are wasted on Sideshow. The first Star Wars PFs are utter crap, they were bad ten years ago and aged even worse, of course they never dared to re-do the most important character with decent head sculpts, decent poses and decent fabric, too difficult I guess. Much better re-release pieces that have already been done in huge quantities.
TFA comes out in a few days and they have absolutely nothing. Whatever they make from the movie is coming out in 2017, probably when the sequel will already be in theatres, exactly like with Marvel movie characters. To boot, the McQuarrie line has ridicolous pricings.

Bad news for PF collectors: SSAlex stated today that the two PFs that were expected to be up for order by the end of the year are now "hopefully" slated for release in 3 moths or longer. Really sucks how slow, almost dead, this line has become.

So we likely see the Ep7 Kylo PF arriving in two years (after Episode 8 in Spring 2017) ...sigh...

I`m pretty sure a HT quarter Scale Kylo is in the works and will be shipped end of 2016, so i think i will go with this...

Maybe i will also cancel my Boba PF and go with the HT 1/4 Boba, visually way more appealing! (except it`s a pricey actionfigure)
...i`m so tired of all the SSC nonsense and i already lost any thrill for my preorders... (plus monthly price hikes and constant delays)

Edit: Just an observation, but all american companies like Sideshow, Gentle Giant or Hasbro went
downhill, but the asian companies like Hot Toys, XM or Bandai are just right in time and the quality
is top notch...

The exact quotes from SSAlex:

"There are quite a few items in the pipeline for Star Wars of all different sizes. Two PFs will hopefully be up for Pre-Order in the next 3 or so months and a few sixth scale pieces are expected to up for Pre-Order in the next several months as well."

AND...

"The two PFs I was talking about were not the Droids but two others. The two I was referring to just weren't able to make it through in the right time frame, so they had to be pushed back in the release schedule unfortunately.

There are quite a few items in the works for Ep VII product with Kylo Ren being the most complete at this time."

I dunno, I'm pretty ok with those comments. At least we know a bunch of things are coming shortly with a lot more in the pipeline. Not really sympathizing with the don't care how I want it now attitude collectors are projecting around here and on other forums.

Ya, but with SS's record, you never really know what's going on, and all we see are delays after delays. It's not about wanting it now, it's about keeping a sense of excitement around collecting... we haven't seen a new Star Wars PF in well over a year, and the ones we did see put up for order were teased and announced well over 2 years ago. Just my two cents.

Rey, Han, and Kylo are musts for the PF line. BB-8, Phasma, and FO Stormtrooper would be great to see as well.

thats why I can not wait for their Vader 1/4 :)

Hey buddy, any chance you can liven up the 12 Days event for us 1/4 scale collectors with some Royal Guard tease since SS doesn't seem to be in any hurry to do so?

Shocked there is not even a teaser for a Rey statue. Probably the 2nd biggest character in a Star Wars movie sweeping the planet. You'd think SSC would have recognized this (although I guess 12 days isn't over yet so maybe there is hope).

We have two more days of 12 Days of Sideshow left so we may see Rey yet. :D

TBH, I've lost the excitement for this line and am considering selling my collection. I have almost all the Star Wars PFs. Will give a heads-up here if I decide to take the plunge for those who may be interested in some older pieces.

I'm on the fence and with the CDN dollar so low right now, I'm leaning towards a sale. It's not just the lack of new stuff, but that sure isn't helping.

I think the scenes when Rey is walking around with BB-8 on Jakku are her most iconic moments so something along those lines would probably be best. Maybe her just walking (instead of the typical one leg up) with a switch out goggled head.

I think the Gentle Giant mini-busts are some of the best pieces in my Star Wars collection. I'm not sure who there is left to do.

I would buy either a statue like your pic or this:

I figured it was a slim chance seeing a new Rey PF during 12 Days of Sideshow but I was hopeful! :lol

Oh well, it saves me money... for now. :lol

They are!
I have around 40 Mini Busts and some statues from GG and i love them all! :wave
Qualitywise, these are great, especially the paintjob, but with "downhill" i mean:

-lack of TFA related products in time (GG:one FO Stormtrooper Bust shipping in likely two years, SSC: one Kylo PF
not even on preorder)
-insane price hicks (GG:FO Stormtrooper MB for 120$/150=165$ :cuckoo: SSC= likely 599$ for the Kylo :horror)

I`m still thankful that GG made some great background characters in their Mini Bust line and i still hope for some cool
Ugnaughts or Cantina/ Jabba aliens, but the new pricing is surely the final coffin in this line and it all started as 3D Systems bought the Giant...:dunno


Personally i will not pay triple (european pricing) the prices for a mini bust as i paid for my latest ones (Malgus and Ree-Yees)
and if Kylo will reach the 600$ mark, i`m likely done withe the premium format aswell...at bests one Statue per year as a highlight!
(good news: we will likely only get one SW themend PF per year..:lol)

Still looking forward for the Kylo, Jango, Sandtrooper, Maul v.2.0 reveals...:impatient:
