She is awesome. I hope she is coming up at SDCC so I can pre order.

Looks pretty cool, but as I said before, I really would have preferred a "Welcome to the Hellmouth," "Prophecy Girl," or "Chosen" Buffy. I will probably pass on this statue and wait for one of those three to be made. Also, I'd really like for Buffy to be holding a stake or the scythe. A poolstick is a weapon that Buffy would use, but it doesn't scream Buffy like a stake or the scythe.

Love the statue, but those hands need some touch up.

Other then that, it's a cool looking little statue.

Nice, but I would never guess in a thousand years it was meant to be Buffy I'm afraid.

I'll pass.

If it's not SMG, it's not Buffy. But I'm still excited to see this at SDCC.

I'm definately underwhelmed.

I think its fun, quirky and different. its not something id personally buy myself, unless it was something other than OMWF. This, to me, doesnt sum up Buffys look in the musical, the hairs not even curly.

I would have prefered a Gift Buffy with Hammer or Chosen Buffy with Scythe to have been first.

I look forward to seeing more though.

It looks good- i love her face.

I'm not sure about the outfit. What episode is it from? I originally thought omwf, but she was wearing jeans, not black pants, and also she wasn't wearing a skivvy.

If anyone has read Tracy mark Lee's letter over at slayalive, it sounds like the other buffy we will be getting is from 'end ofdays'. I was hoping for what billybudd suggested: 'chosen' buffy with scythe or "wtth" buffy w/stake.

I'll still be buying this because, well, it's buffy, and it still looks great even though it's not exactly what i'd hoped for.

I don't like it!

But it could very well be from "Once More With Feeling"
That's the only episode I can remember Buffy wearing a big, red turtleneck sweater. And she did use the "pool stick" to hit those wooden dolls?

BillyBudd
07-21-2007, 06:33 PM
Yeah, it sounds like the other Buffy statue will be based on a late Season 7 episode. I assume Buffy will be holding the scythe. If you ask me, Sideshow/Electric Tiki should put the S7 Buffy up for pre-order before the one pictured above. You want the line to start off on the right foot, and assuming the S7 statue comes with the scythe, I can pretty much guarantee that it will sell better than the pictured one. The S7 one should also have a larger edition size than the one pictured above.

If only two Buffy statues are released, then we are going to end up with a Buffy holding a pool cue instead of a more iconic weapon such as a stake. If that turns out to be the case, then in my opinion, Sideshow/Electric Tiki has made a mistake. If this line is going to thrive, then every statue needs to be a winner. The statue pictured above is pretty cool, but there is a better statue out there waiting to be made.


Tracy's letter at SlayAlive...


We've got 2 Buffy designs, 2 Willow and Caleb approved. It's doubtful we will see Caleb come to fruition unless the line does really well. We may do him as an exclusive somewhere. I know he's not the most popular villain, but he's a favorite of mine as well as a good companion piece to "one" of the Buffy's. Two Spike designs are in for approval now and am working on another favorite villain (that would be a great companion piece for one of the Willows) and will probably work on Faith or Angel next. I doubt we'll be premiering approved designs on our site, just the finished prototypes. We are working hard to get one of the Buffy's finished for display at Comic Con. Hope that catches you up.

Thing is, just saying that she's been sculpted in a 'animated style' and so doesn't have to look like SMG just doesn't cut it for me.

Hey, I have friends who work in the animation industry as character animators, and the whole point of designing something like this is to create a cartoon likeness of the character involved, trying to keep the essence of the person, and yet 'running with it'. 'Tooning it up' and yet managing to keep it recognizable as the person.

The above just looks like a generic cartoon female to me, not like Buffy at all. Thats my take on it anyway.

Browncoat
07-22-2007, 03:43 AM
I think it looks just as good as other animated maquettes.

Here are a couple of star wars and lotr. I think they look cool, but i don't think they are great representations of the actors. I don't think they're really meant to be.

I wonder how much the buffy ones will sell for? Electric tiki's stuff is priced anywhere from US$50-$180. I'd guess it'll be at least $100???

sueworld
07-22-2007, 05:59 AM
$100? If thats the case it's definitely overpriced.

Thing is I'm not that keen on the other examples you've posted there either, but maybe it's just me. I've seen many examples of my friends work in the animation industry where they did look like the source images they were based on, so statues like this really don't do much for me.

If I wanted a generic cartoon girl holing a pool cue, well then it would be different I guess.

Good on those who still want to get it though. :o

I like it. It is good to see that another company is taking a chance with the Buffy license, and creating something unique with it. I hope these statues sell really well as the company are very vocal about making some of the less popular characters which we will probably never see in 1/6, PF or 6" form.

On the plus side I can totally see Buffy in that portrait. Also, with things like this the final product almost always turns out exactly like the prototype, there are no "dodgy" likenesses or scale issues, which in my eyes is a bonus.

BillyBudd

Even if she is, it's still not enough for me at least. Lets see whats's going on with the base. It just doesn't scream or even whisper Buffy to me from that picture.

More concept images of the upcoming statues, these are really starting to take shape.

I love those magical Willow ones, and the style of the bases. Not too keen on Spike though, his pose reminds me of the Fonz! Caleb looks really menacing which I like, the same goes for Glory who really suits the tooned up style.

BillyBudd
07-24-2007, 10:03 AM
All of the Buffy and Willow designs look fabulous. I especially like Dark Willow. It looks like the regular Willow comes from the episode I suggested for a PF Willow..."Tough Love." Does anyone else think that the Buffy OMWF design actually looks a tad better than the final product? I just like the 2D face better than the 3D one.

I'm glad to hear that Spike is being worked on because I'm not a big fan of the pose. What exactly is he doing with his left hand?


nd each Buffy maquette will come with two set's of hands including both versions seen.

The pool cue (or scythe) can be replaced with a stake...cool!

I see what you're saying, but to be fair, the statue is really supposed to be viewed from from the right. In other words, you're supposed to be looking at Buffy's left side. Look at the art that the statue is based on. The statue is true to the art.

In the picture of the statue above, the viewer needs to move a bit to the right. And in the picture of the statue below, the viewer needs to move a bit to the left.

Does anyone else think that she's highly priced for what she is and how she looks? I'd like to buy this but i can't justify spending almost 50 pound on something that doesn't look like her. I think Elektric Tiki are just trying to cash in on the Buffy craze. I've decided to buy the PF Lara Croft instead

Guys she is animated she is not suppose to look like Sarah at all. I for one am glad they added this to our Buffy collections. Also, I don't think she is pricey for the sculpt and the height. I think that price was just fine. Some of you are just always use to complaining so it's not shock that you did on this and whatever comes next.

sueworld
07-29-2007, 11:55 AM
I simply don't get this 'gag' Why on earth bring out something thats meant to be Buffy, and yet not look anything like her.

Why on earth would I feel drawn to buy such a thing? Really.

Good for those who want such a thing, but as these aren't based on any 'real' cartoon series and so is meant to be 'harking back' to the TV show, why don't they do a tooned version of Geller?

BillyBudd
07-29-2007, 12:14 PM

I don't totally buy that. Look at Glory, and especially Caleb. The designs definitely look like the actors.

As far as the price goes, I think $90 is reasonable. Resin statues rarely cost under $100. Only vinyl statues do.

When I wrote my original comment I was specifically thinking about you. I don't even like to visit the Buffy threads anymore because all I ever see are complaints about the smallest most insignificant things that go on for pages.

There are plenty of things that don't catch me or that I don't like but I don't dwell on them and bring everyone else down with my comments. I say it once and move on. you really suck the fun out of these products when you don't let other people enjoy them.

Thing is I won't lie if I don't like something love. Sorry you think that by just giving an honest opinion is 'sucking the fun' out of things. You'll notice that I'm not the only one expressing such opinions on these boards.

I've worked in an industry that involved some of the best sculptors out there, so I think that after 25 years I know good quality when I see it. I wish I could turn a 'blind eye' but I can't.

A company like Tiki aren't charging two cents for this kind of thing. They charge quite a lot, so forgive me if I query some of the elements of the final product. If the sale price was cheap, then maybe I'd be less fussy I suppose.

The reason why I express things the way I do on such items as the PF figures is that I desperately want them to be the best that they can be. If I'm forking out a hell of a lot of money for something I want it to be the best it can be.

I don't think thats such a terrible thing to want is it?

I understand where you are coming from. You want these things to come out the best they can and that isn't such a terrible thing. Honestly, it isn't what you say or what you want, it's how it's said ultimately. Sometimes it feels like things will never be good enough for you when I read your posts. It's fine to be picky or selective but you should also keep in mind that some people are satisfied, if not downright overjoyed by the way these products turn out.

I mean no offense by my comments I just felt like it needed to be said. Take care.

sueworld

I think the thing is, even though maybe "leia" on the other page might not look that much like Carrie Fisher, it's still VERY obvious it's Leia.
If you take the stake and pool cue (hell, even WITH the pool cue...) away from this figure, nobody would ever think it was Buffy.
That's the problem in a nutshell. Sure it's cute and toon-y, but it just looks like some blond girl with blue eyes, (SMG's are hazely-brown too but that's something else...)

It's still cool but if it looke just a BIT more like SMG, would probably be more desirable.

And for the record, I think Spike looks amazing, I like my original PF Buffy alot but I think ANGEL as he stands now looks dreadful....

While no, it's no fun if someone is critical about everything, I'm not gonna say, "wow! That's great!" just because a piece that costs MAJOR $ exists.

That's the problem in a nutshell. Sure it's cute and toon-y, but it just looks like some blond girl with blue eyes, (SMG's are hazely-brown too but that's something else...)

What makes Leia obvious is that she has very clear signature features--it's all about the buns and the white dress, not to mention R2, not about Carrie Fisher, who in fact is rather an ordinary looking woman who you might not recognize on the street without the buns, and thus is apparently a difficult representational likeness to capture. That's just the way Star Wars as a licensed property is or has turned out.

The human characters on Buffy, on the other hand, for the most part don't have signature outfits. Their signature features are primarily the actors themselves and maybe secondarily props like Buffy's stake, the scythe, Giles's book or Faith's knife. Buffy is SMG, Willow is AH. Take away the RL likeness, and all you can do is stick a stake in the blonde girl's hand. The outfit? I couldn't tell you what Buffy's wearing in 99% of the individual episodes. I had no clue red turtleneck=OMWF. Doesn't she wear 5 different outfits in that one, anyway? It's why SS can get away with putting them in promo outfits as long as they nail the likeness, as the Angel PF thing shows. Everyone has a threshold where the scales tip either toward recognizing the character, or saying, huh? Who's that?

That's why I think Buffy and Angel will be hard to pull off as stylized representations rather than actor portraits. The exceptions are the vamps, who have a very easy representational shortcut, their bumpies and fangs. Another exception are signature character versions like Dark Willow or Illyria.

Even if you can get over accepting stylization over representation, you then have other issues. First is the matter of personal aesthetics. Of those who can recognize the characters, who among them like the tooned up look? Next, I think, is economics. Of those who recognize the characters and like the tooned up look, who would pay the asking price? I think what it comes down to is that this line is targeting a very specific kind of collector, and someone who likes it won't argue someone who doesn't into changing their mind, and vice versa.

Personally, the stake and the smirking expression is enough for me to recognize that it's Buffy. I'm a bit puzzled over the pool cue, as to be honest I have no clue which episode they took this look and outfit from. I'm so-so on liking the tooned up thing--I like cartoons, but I'm partial to actual cartoon properties a la Simpsons and Spongebob. But as for the price? That seals the deal for me. It's definitely not something I'd pay retail for, but might pick up if I can find it (much) cheaper elsewhere.

Here's the thing, Buffy is not SMG, Buffy is a character that has been played by another actress and in the future could be played by some one else. SMG is not Buffy. Buffy existed before SMG and will hopefully continue long after her. Sure the outfit is inspired from an episode of the television show but I think people should move past Sarah as the one and only Buffy. This piece is a concept, an idea, not an exact representation of one certain actress-just a character.

I hear ya and completely understand but in my mind and many others, Buffy IS SMG. Always will be...? Kristy Swanson...?!?! Gack!

Well until another actress comes along to play that role, (sorry Kristy fans) Buffy IS SMG. I bet If you asked a bucket load of fans who they visualize when they think of Buffy 99% will say her, I'm sure of it.

All acting roles are created not only by the writing and direction, but from input from the actors themselves, so to say 'She's not Buffy' is stretching it rather I believe.

Alison, Nick Brendon, ASH, all those actors helped to define their characters as the years went on, and if you talk to some of the on staff writers of the show, you'll hear the same thing.

Actors have a huge influence on how a character is perceived , so please don't underestimate their contribution. It helped shape it into the series you ended up with.

But hey, thats just me. :D

I think it's more in her pose then in her "likeness".

Who's saying you can't...?

The thing is, if some here aren't thrilled with a piece, they are allowed their opinions too. This is a discussion forum, not a gushing slap sideshow on the back for anything they crank out forum.
If some people here like a piece, fine. If some people don't, that's fine too.

:)

I think I need to clarify. I wasn't talking about other people here in the forum. I definitely value other peoples' opinions here. I was talking about people who come to my home and drool over my collection. I don't select the pieces I buy based on whether or not people who see it later will say "Oh, that's Buffy!" As long as I know it's Buffy, and the overall presentation is impressive enough to me in some way, that's what matters most to me. Because, in the long run, I spend a lot more time drooling over my collection than other people do. ;)

Me too. In fact, if you see SMG anywhere else, people always go, "oh, that's Buffy" They never say, "Oh, that's Daffney"

If I were to see her in public, I would probably just stand there and drool (kind of the same way I do over my collection ;)).

true.

I'd bring my wienerdog over to her and tell her that we named her "Buffy" in her honor.

(Not too sure if she would be thrilled by that though...)

Good news: Buffy entered the top ten at #10.

I'm probably pre-ordering before it sells out. If I change my mind before shipping, would they make me pay cancellation fees on this item?

They don't charge you for cancellations.

People over there are not digging AniBuffy too much. I agree with them in some points. For instance, change the pool for a stake and you get a little more Buffy. Oh, and it was fun reading the comment about I dream of Jeanie. I'm still deciding... Do Electric Tiki stuff get cheaper later on eBay in general? I think I will wait and see how much can I save on this, because if I get her from Sideshow, the total price would be around $180.

OMG $180?! I wouldn't say she was worth that. Maybe wait. Would the shipping be better or worse for you with Sideshow?

With Sideshow shipping would be $50. I'm not sure if that would be better or worse than eBay, but at least with eBay I know I'll probably have more shipping options and I can find a cheaper method. Plus, custom taxes are already included in the final invoice with Sideshow, but with eBay you have to pay them once the item is delivered, and some times customs in Spain don't charge you any fee, my postman told me that's quite random. So I am sure I will save in shipping and taxes, but if Buffy's price increases once she sells out on the SSC webpage, I am not sure if waiting for eBay would be the best idea.

Here in the UK I see she's listed at Forbidden Planet for around £50. Still too expensive for what it is, in my opinion.

I'd risk eBay. I've been lucky so for (touches wood) in that customs haven't 'nabbed' me yet when having stuff sent across.

I didn't see that anyone had posted links to these new pics.

I really don't understand why they'd do Caleb, there are so many more interesting villains. But I like the Willows and Glory is okay. Not really digging on the Spike pose though.

im wondering if those are the poses they will use? if they do end of days buffy, is she gonna be posed the same way as the first buffy? are both willows gonna be in the exact same pose? pretty boring if they decide that. as for caleb, the artist is a big fillon fan or something thats why he did it.

I absolutely love them all. I'd buy a Caleb, I love Fillion and I love th character, and I'm sure the statuette would look awesome. The Willows could be spectacular as well.

i hear ya. im looking foward to the two willows. two willows are always better than one. i hope they change dark willows eyes to black though. i was gonna pass on this line till i saw all the other designs. now its just too tempting.

Not interested in the pool cue, stake OMWF version. However, I would probably find the End of Days version too cool to pass up with the scythe. I could see a small display of Angel, Willow, Buffy, and Spike (and maybe an eye-patch Xander ... please?).

actually you can switch her hands out. she can hold a stake in each hand or hold 1 stake and have an empty hand.

Yeah, ditto that. If they make them, and Sideshow is able to distribute them, I'll most likely be buying them.
