Old schools die hard :lol

I keep doing the same thing myself. I still find it interesting the Jedi's name was changed from Revenge to Return to be more politically correct(less hostile sounding or whatever), but now its fine to name it Revenge of the Sith. Go figure.


Anyway, outstanding news Dave. Can't wait to find out what it is.

Actually Lucas decided that Jedi's wouldn't seek Revenge - hence the name change to "RETURN of the Jedi" And considering what we know now - Return makes a lot more sense.

I'd imagine that Sith don't have such compunctions about seeking revenge though....

If this is Grievous, it moves to my most wanted piece of all the stuff that I collect.

Dave, I was just giving you a hard time.:poke

Ox, Dave is correct on the reason for the name change.

Actually I don't think I ever really new the reason behind the name change, but I must admit it does make sense.

Just noticed that Sideshow made the typo on their C3 page, and not Dave.

Viking, how cool would a 1/4 Clone Trooper look beside our MR Clone helmets? Now I just need that Code 3 RGS to complete the display.......

I can't imagine it would be another Darth, with SS just making one; but what about Yoda? :dunno

A new character from Episode III sounds to me like a character thats not in the other movies, so I don't think it would be an Episode III Vader. The new Characters are really Grevouis, Tarfful, Tion Medon, and the new Clone Troopers, some of which have specific characters this time around.

If it's just a new character to Sideshow's Premium Format line, I would love to see the Emperor in 1/4 scale!

I'm guessing that it'll either be Yoda or Palpatine, that way they cover both sides with a character that is in both trilogies, linking to the new Revenge Of The Sith flick, as well as the original trilogy fans who aren't quite so taken with the prequels. We'll see I guess.

The Obi-Wan they have been working on could well be ROTS Obi-Wan. :lol That might be the exclusive. :p :idea :mwaha

We've seen the head from the 1/4 Obi and it was Guiness not MacGregor. I like the idea of Yoda - although I'd prefer an Empire version first.

given more time to think....i bet it's anakin

elwood49
04-16-2005, 01:53 PM
I would prefer Grievous or a Clone Trooper, but Anakin would be fine with me. Grievous MUST be made at some point. He would be fantastic in 1/4 scale.

Maybe it'll be a character we havent seen yet? Allthoguh I'm betting on Mace Windu myself. Cant think of a more popular character from the new movies.

Actually Viking, I believe C3 starts on Thursday morning, so hopefully we'll know then.

I am guessing it will be General G.

I hope it's a Blue Clonetrooper but I bet they release the troopers later.

It is most likely Grievous....I think he looks more marketable than Tarful and I can't think of another 'New' Character that they would bother doing this soon in their new 1/4 line!

Grievous with three sabers and a blaster drawn....Damn!

He is really tall too...so, think Vader size!:nazgul

Blue Clone Trooper, Blue Clone Trooper:drool

You know, it could be Chewie, especially as he's yet another character that is in episode 3, but also a part of the original trilogy, plus which he'd make a nice counterpiece to go along with Han.

Probably not, but just a thought that crossed my mind.

If/when they do make Chewie it'll be interesting to see just how they design him, given his 'full body hair' appearance and all. Hoping he'll be fully sculpted personally when he gets done, otherwise he's lible to turn out looking like Cousin It. :p

I can't realy see myself having to brush Chewie everyday either to keep him looking right.

If I had to gues I would guess either Windu, Grievous, or Dark Anakin.

Is it Thursday yet.

A sculpted Chewie would go against the whole concept of the Premium Figures in my opinion. But the hair could keep them from making this character ever if they can't figure a way to do it right.

You hit the nail on the head.

On another note, it looks like I'll be helping Brant, Brock, Bob, and Jared at the show after all. Anyone who's going please feel free to stop by and say hello. :wave

Almost time!! Will Sideshow do a special email or do you think they will wait until this friday?

dstephan

They just said that they will do a special announcement on Friday. I wonder if the figure will be on display before then? So many people taking pics - if it's on display earlier there are bound to be pics on the web tomorrow.
