View Full Version : THINGS HAVE CHANGED........

07-12-2005, 06:50 AM
I remember when the week leading up to SDCC, the board would be buzzing with gossip & excitement. But this SDCC seems a low key affair almost a sombre atmosphere. It's not just the LOTR section......most sections too. Nothing to look forward to, as everything has been announced, maybe? :lol

Well.. the announcement of the final three pieces killed it for many, didn't it?

Anyway, what is the there to look forward to LOTR-wise at


Edit:...Actually read past your first sentence....I should just have just replied with a "YES".

What we do have to look forward to at SDCC this year are more pictures of the upcoming LOTR releases.

While it won't have the excitement of even ToyFair earlier this year, at least we'll get some different and hopefully detailed pictures of the previewed items. Hey, it's something... ;)

07-12-2005, 08:26 AM
Well, it's not LOTR but there is a rumor of a major announcement about a different line. So there's THAT to look forward to...

But this SDCC will be about quality rather than quantity. Not a lot of new stuff revealed, but we've gotten a bunch of new stuff in the past weeks. And perhaps there will be one or two big surprises (again, in other lines).

I'm still hoping that SideShow might revive the Hellboy figures a little by making a few new ones, like Rasputin. Other than that, all I'm looking forward to is seeing some actual footage of the new pieces. So its not a total loss. We might not get loads of new stuff, but its not a dead end either.

07-12-2005, 08:43 AM
I'm just looking forward to seeing all the new stuff in greater detail. What the Mumakil looks like in person (or on someones camera!) etc etc.

07-12-2005, 08:44 AM
I'm personally hoping its a SW 1/6th scale poly line.

07-12-2005, 08:48 AM
A new line? maybe Wallace and Gromit?

07-12-2005, 09:38 AM
Im actually surprised also, last year we saw the ad in Lee's Toy review. This year no hints.
Arnold 1/4, Predator 1/4 perhaps????

07-12-2005, 09:40 AM
I'm personally hoping its a SW 1/6th scale poly line.

uhhh, you mean LOTR right Josh?

07-12-2005, 09:44 AM
I cant see it Josh, with GG doing their 1/6 releases. I would rather have SS do it, look what they are doing with Marvel. They could take the SW line above and beyond with the diorama's.

For LOTR, I'll be excited to see pics of the new statues with Chuck's eye for detail. His pic of Gothmog on Warg is what made me preorder him months ago.

For other lines, I'd like to see the Predator 1/4, Star Wars 1:1's, hopefully some new Star Wars 1/4's , and hopefully more 1/4 Terminator pieces. There's a LOT to look forward to for those who collect more than just LOTR.

And you know Sideshow will be giving away TONS of prizes on their site. I've won a nice prize every time I've ever been on the chat. Sideshow has the best giveaways of any company I've ever been around.:rock

07-12-2005, 12:23 PM
Well, I doubt it happens either Viking but its a hope.

Well, of course but I don't think its that at all.

For LOTR, I'll be excited to see pics of the new statues with Chuck's eye for detail.

Your gonna get so many pics from everyone it won't even be funny.

07-12-2005, 12:29 PM
As long as they have some good contests in chat :google :google :google and i win a nice prize :clap :clap :clap ---- I'm happy :lol :lol :lol

TC :bonk :eye :bonk

Yeah, there are no fun boxes to speculate over (a la Toy Fair); I suppose I am jazzed for pics. :banana

07-12-2005, 12:32 PM
End of an era, yes, but I can't get sentimental over the line...although I will still be collecting Weta collectibles...of the Ape kind. :p :rock :D

07-12-2005, 03:04 PM
Indiana Jones.:rock

I think we have alot of complaints and arguments to look forward to at this years SDCC .:(

07-13-2005, 08:35 AM
I'm actually really looking forward to Richard Taylor and the Weta gang talk about the end of the line - why they didn't bring out more pieces, whether they're going to continue it some day etc. Should be good stuff.

07-13-2005, 09:14 AM
I am with Elwood,

We need more Terminator 1/4 pieces for sure. I am 90% positive that Predator 1/4 will be released too. FINALLY!

I also hope the Indiana Jones license is announced but I doubt it.

More Star Wars 1/4 figures would also be great.

07-13-2005, 09:50 AM
A 1/4 scale Predator I would definately buy. And seeing as Sideshow is doing it, I know it's going to kick ass. I'm not really hyped about seeing pics of any of the new LOTR stuff except maybe Legolas & Gimli and Sauron again.

07-13-2005, 03:57 PM
Aren't they doing the star wars 1:1 line at SDCC Dave?

sorry if off topic or wrong forum, just responding to your post.

SDCC '05 was when when they announced the Luke PF wasn't it? if it was that was the first time i heard of SS and why i got on board. the coverage was on Tech TV I believe.
