Check out the shadow-- In the middle, doesn't that look like a clone trooper helmet or is it a stretch?... Or is it merely a Medi announcement forthcoming?

Yes, likely it's Medicom's AOTC Clone Trooper.

Definitely a clone trooper YES!; there's also an Indy, Gandalf, A dinosaur thing, a Rambo I think and something else... An other Zombie perhaps?

They need to fix the spelling of Roy's name from Schneider to Scheider.

I'm torn. I really think the shadow on the left is either Rambo or an AOTC Mullet-Wan Kenobi.

Gandalf's staff.

Hot Toys Rambo bust, Jurassic Park T-Rex (don't know what product type), Medicom Clone, 1/6 Gandalf, Don't Know, 1/6Indy.


WTF, I got to stop looking at a thread then using another browser, then going back to said thread and commenting. I end up missing stuff and everybody already answers!

I think it was supposed to be that Snake Eyes and Cobra Commander would be first 2 announced, but not sure if there was supposed to be a order implied there.

I have no idea what the one next to Indy is... but Snake Eyes is as good a guess as any.

I don't think that's Rambo - what you're seeing as his headband seems to belong to the piece next to him.

You can tell by the bandanna, the tilt of the head, and the bumps in the hair. Its all there.

Yep, and I think the little line above the bandanna is a Raptor tail.

Yes, likely it's Medicom's AOTC Clone Trooper.

It would be a super cool suprise if it were a Sideshow AOTC Clone Trooper, yeah I know I'm dreaming but I can't stop myself wishing Sideshow would release Armored figures already! :D

Awesome.. we get Gandalf! ... Indy! T-rex eating raptor statue!! and hopefully Snakeyes!!! not to mention clone trooper from medi and rambo bust.


I wonder if anything else will be released??

tomandshell

T-rex eating raptor statue!!

I am firmly in the "T-Rex standing behind Rambo's bandana" camp.

If they produce a piece of a poor raptor being so abused, I am going to contact PETA.

The Josh
02-15-2008, 02:36 PM
Yeah, I'd say its a T-Rex as well.

This has me really anxious, although I wish SSC had there Indy ready for when the movie hits in may, and last time they rushed a figure like he was the crisis known as Yavin Luke. Still hopeful I guess.

If the question mark guy IS Snake Eyes, then it would appear to be the '82 version (v1), which sux for me cause I'm in love with version 2 and it'll take that much longer for him to come about.

Everything else, guesswise, seems to be pretty interesting. Can't wait to see Gandalf!

I certainly hope that this is a dio with the famous ending of JP. :rock

I'd prefer the '82 one... He's the one I was first to exposed to and he'll always be the authentic Snake-Eyes.

Word. v2 Snake Eyes is the coolest by far with his sword, wolf, and totally cool looking visor. Plus it was the SE from the cartoon and all the coolest issues of the comic (save the silent issue IIRC.)

I'd have to agree! It's definitely his most iconic look and the one he held onto the longest. The visor was always my favorite aspect as a kid. Snake Eyes rocked! :rock

I agree the 1st piece is Rambo bust. I think the Jurassic Park piece will be a dio. Since they have 2 open slots under dios still to be revealed.

I agree with Clone Trooper, GTG, Snake Eyes and Indiana Jones.

I wish there was more then one p.f. announcement. I hope it's Indy.

I'm sure we will. If you look there's six ???s and so far we have only got Indy, GTG, Clone Trooper and what most are speculating to be Snakes. That still leaves two slots open for a possible Star Wars figure or two.

Han came with a stormtrooper blaster didn't he???

Actually, so did Leia...so you're probably meant to use her one...

They did only have two as they ran around on the Death Star...

Some extras would be nice though...

It is starting to look like the big "Year of the Troopers" meant Medicom Troopers. Maybe Sideshow totally shelfed the idea of producing them and is going to offer them to us via the Medicom route.

lerath666
02-16-2008, 08:33 AM
well, i doubt it. they said the needed a new body first, indy is on the new body ( look in general and indy threads) also, the talked about their armor during spook.
The armor is comming.:D

I said the same thing. Then I got him for 90 bucks. He can also be "heighten" rather easily to around 13". So, he worth it til SSC gets theirs out.

The Medi-Clones ar great, but I think the AOTC Trooper signals that we will see four repaints of this from Medi, and most likely nothing new until they are all out. Although they took a while to do 501st and Shocjtroopers, so I could be wrong like always. Here's hoping for a ROTJ Boba Fett!!!!

Cap'n Hands
02-16-2008, 01:49 PM
The silhouette at the top of the page has the 12" indie on the right side and what I think is a new Rambo from Hot Toys on the left and what looks like a clone trooper in the middle. Think this might be a 12" armored figure? Probably just wishful thinking but that would be a great announcement.

Oops, didn't see that other thread. Sry.
