still looking for a 3rd quarter delivery though.
So a pre-order should be soon.
I kept thinking ever since we got the announcement that we would have gotten a sneak peek or a pre-order by now.
The Snake-Eyes movie picks are making it even worse.
I need the figure now.

Lessons learned:

1) Don't put all your faith in message board rumors.

2) Even IF it's been in the works 'forever' that in no way means that anything is ready for debut immediately.

JOE is a brand new, high profile license for us - takes a bit of time to get all the myriad of details worked out with licensing, distribution, production, etc etc etc etc... and many other things that pop up when beginning a new license.

Remember Star Wars 12-inch? 5 months from announcement to debut. How about Indiana Jones? 7 months from announcement to debut. Both were in the works 'forever' as well. (These are just examples and in no way shape or form mean anything, other than... perfection takes patience and a willingness to adapt to new situations ;))

That's a good point. But remember, Hasbro has a lot of say in this as well. It's THEIR license ultimately... they're just (thankfully, for us) allowing Sideshow to make figures much better than they ever could. It's a little different than the SW or INDY licenses where Sideshow essentially gets blessing from Lucasfilm Licensing (though that can present a whole slew of fun in and of itself)... with G.I. JOE, they're basically producing high-end toys based on mass market toys that are IP of the original mass market toy company (phew! Say that fast 3 times). I have to imagine there's some interesting politics involved with that.

If you're referring to our press release, I took it to mean that prototypes would be ready to show off in 3rd Quarter? I honestly don't know much more than you guys do at this point as to when to expect them, but I just automatically assumed that's what it meant... :confused:

Actually it said shipping in Q3 of 2008. At least that's how I'd interpret this line...


The figures are expected to release beginning in 3rd Quarter 2008, with retail prices starting at $79.99.

Dusty

But 'release' typically means 'solicit' in my past experience with the wording on these things... 'solicit' meaning pre-ordering / all details 'released' to the public, not shipping.

Ah, who knows with these things - it's always too complicated for me to get caught up in, and so many things change at the drop of a hat that it's confusing to keep track of it all - I'm sure it's even worse on the creative side :lol

Thanks for clearing that up, seriously. I'd much rather know that the *previews* are Q3 rather than checking the newsletter like an idiot four times a month until then.

Just out of curiousity, why so much downtime between license announcement and previews/preorders? Simple building of anticipation or is there another reason?

Dusty

Can't really go into details because 1) don't know many and 2) don't want to get in trouble, but it's a crazy conundrum. We REALLY want to shout it to the rooftops as soon as we GET a license, but then the wait time would be a TON longer. Let's just say there's a very large number of details to get worked out from point A (yay, we got it!) to point B (here's the fully approved first figure), *especially* with high profile IPs that have been protected for years. So many different variables that it can truly make one's head spin :wacky

It is in no way simply a matter of sculpting/clothing something and saying, 'Here it is!' Believe me when I say that Sideshow always try to do it right (not just the artistic side, but the business and marketing side too - trying to please as many different groups as possible), which takes time!

I guess i could use Tomz and Xamot... if i can find them. Snake Eyes As well... ( Visor version for me thanks) A surpentor would be worth snagging... and Got to have shipwreck ( Childhood thing) But are there any others That i should snag i wonder.....

all at the same time!....then more come few months later....the way Sideshow moves in making 1/6 scale stuff it might take 3 years just to get like 7-10 of these on the shelf.by then hasbro gets tired of Sideshow and we only get a few characters :( Hasbro releases 4 figures at a time in a series (ala Hall of Fame) which would give us maybe 12 figures in a year....with Sideshow it could be 2 a year

They're based on early-mid 80's RAH designs, as they should be.

That would be my guess as well. Why mention the end of the month yesterday if an announcement was coming in less than 48 hours? I wonder who the first Joe will be. It could still be Snake Eyes. Maybe they had issues making his outfit look cool on a Prometheus (it BETTER be a Prometheus!) body and he's taken longer than they expected. The SW and LOTR 1/6 scale lines were both kicked off with iconic heroes so I assume it won't be Cobra Commander. If it isn't Snake Eyes I'd guess Duke or Flint.

I would hope at least a solid hint as to who or what the first announcement will be.

I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't just a "You waiting for GI Joe? Be prepared for more on this in the coming weeks leading up to SDCC!" blurb and that's it. :rolleyes:

I definitely won't amused if their announcement this week amounts to nothing more than "SNAKEEYESSAYSBESURETODRINKYOUROVALTINE." :lol

I hope these will come out fast...I am hoping they announce 2 figures at the same time....it takes too long for figures to get released...were looking at 2 per year which might make people lose interest fast

Hopefully tonight's the night we finally see a SS Joe and this thread can disappear quicker than Steven Sommers' film after the opening weekend. :D

If there is No Joe tonight, I will call SS every hour tomorrow and just say No Joe to them.

This is the version of Snake Eyes I'm most interested in purchasing:

Doesn't look like any I've seen. Looks like a mix of the 85 and 89 versions, which were much better.

Hey EF, I just remember a 3 3/4" figure I used to own...it must have been the '89 version.

Here we go:

That artist definitely made him look cool but since that is an obvious off-shoot of his iconic 1985 look why not just have the real thing? That being said I'm still a little nervous about how the spandex look will work on a 1/6 body.

Well if one thing is for sure, these figures need the new body design.

they need a lot more then just new body!!

Justin, do you ever not mention a new body in any thread?

The price point alone lets it known these will have SS's new body.

Spandex could look just fine, Hot Toys Superman proves that. If they are on the Prometheus body it should look fine.

with the suspected next year release... this will definately be an affordable line... BUT A PAINFUL ONE TO COLLECT!!! ;)

I like the Snakes... looks like they are making them a bit more realistic then we originaly though... which is pretty cool if you ask me.

Its exactly how I pictured them looking. I guess some of you just wanted blown up versions of the ancient 3 3/4" figures. This is definately the way to go.
