I remember Andy saying a while back (before Grievous and Kenobi were announced) that he had just completed work on a SW 1/4 piece. Since the 2 newest announcements are obviously not that piece, do you think that Leia will show up at SDCC? I think that maybe we will see her.

It's possible that they only previewed/preordered Kenobi since he is still on track for '05. Remember Han was shown at SDCC last year, but didn't go up for preorder until December. I think we could see Leia or the Droids with their preorders to take place at a later date. What do you guys think?

I also agree with what Gruson said in another thread that we will see a very limited minor character exclusive at some point. They talked about how they were going to do characters like Bib Fortuna with extremely low ES's, so how awesome would a 750-1000 ES Greedo be?:drool

How about a very limited Slave Leia, with an edition size of 69...?

:lol :drool

Yeah, it and Marvel will probably have a couple announcements at SDCC.

Perhaps they didn't save Obi for SDCC because Leia was right on his heels. But it would be unusual to reveal the 2 so close together.

They're gonna want to also focus on their new Star Wars full scale 1:1 Busts!!! :bang

True, I also have very little interest in those. As I've said before, I MIGHT buy a Yoda or a Maul, but that's it.

Yeah, I think Leia might show up at SDCC. That or the Droids, I can't wait for them to do the ESB stuff though, Yoda, Boba,
Bring it on.:rock

Yes, but remember, they are revealing the first of their 1:1 busts. That Star Wars product reveal might just be the bust, not a new 1/4 figure. We'll see...

It'd be nice to see Boba announced. :rock

As I said in another thread, I think that announcement will be the 1:1 bust line debut. Here's to hoping for a 1:1 Yoda bust, that would be pretty cool.:toast

I forgot about their 1/1 busts. Still, I have a feeling that we will at least see a new 1/4 figure.

I am going to guess that the first bust will be Yoda. It seemed likely at first that it might be Vader, but I think that with high quality helmets already available, Vader, Boba Fett, Stormtrooper, etc. wouldn't be that unique. Just buy a helmet and stick it on your shelf. A character whose face is visible would be more of a showcase for their skills. My guess would be Yoda. We'll see tomorrow night!

I think it'd be great if SS did a Vader 1:1 bust. No doubt, they'd give MR a run for their money. Here's hoping if another 1/4 figure is shown, it's Maul, Qui-Gon, or another prequel character.

I would rather see Maul or Gui-Gon before Leia, but we shall see.

IT'S MAUL TIME!!!

We need the coolest prequel character in 1/4 scale for sure.

:rock

My bet is still on Leia though...

They'd said that the OT was taking priority, but of course we've had Grievous. But I'd prefer Leia over any NT character and over most OT characters.

Yeah, Leia has a high probability of being next to so they can finish out the set.

I thought I saw a scuplt of 3PO laying on a table in one of their pictures already...
Don't you remember his head laying there or something?

There were stills of C-3PO from Ep. IV that could be seen in the background on the DVD Sideshow gave out at CIII. Certainly this suggests that these stills were used to sculpt the upcoming 1/4 piece. I think we'll see him and R2 after Leia.

I'd like to see the droids form one set when on display. They don't have to be sold together, but it would be nice if they went together like Vader and Kenobi. I think a good idea would be the classic pose where 3PO has his hand on R2's head.

Since we already know Vader and Obi-Wan will have the
option to illuminate their sabers, would we also want any
blinking lights or eyes on R2-D2/C-3PO? Also, we know Sideshow is familiar in using soundchips in some of their pieces, so...would a soundchip in R2 appeal to most if it didn't cost alot to include? Or would that be tacky to have on a premium format piece? My vote would be to have both lights and sound.

I bet Leia will be next. I hope so... I'm sure it will be her in that white dress, hair in two buns, most likely with her gun in hand bent elbow. Will look really good I bet.:banana

God, please no. That would be SO tacky. It would remind me of those crappy singing bass trophies that are on the aisles of your local Wal-Mart.:puke


PLEASE NO SOUNDCHIPS!

Sorry, but I'm all for lights and sounds. I don't want statues, I want something I can play with!
