Yeah, but who really has $850 to blow on THAT?

Good question...I didn't notice the price. That is a bit steep for me, but it doesn't change the fact that it looks pretty amazing.

Same people who got the 900+ dollar predator maquette, $850 Darkness bust, so on and so forth.... :p

Thanks Azog. I was just trying to figure out how to delete my thread when you combined them. I guess we were both posting at about the same time!

I really want this thing, but these high-priced items are really starting to add up! They are all coming in the 2nd quarter of 2006 and even if you do FlexPay, after two or three of these, you are paying the full price of one each month! I'm going to have to think about it, but I will probably order one! :banghead

No problem, you actually posted first but for some reason it did not put yours as the first..well I ordered but we shall see.....

No interest in this, but I'm glad to see Sideshow continuing with these types of products. :clap

Surely, if they can make a Pumpkinhead, there's got to be an Alien maquette in development over at SW Studios to go with my Predator! :naughty

I'm waiting to hear if Adam will be able to carry it. Can save a little bit that way if he does.

Of course, having said that, not sure whether I'll be able to swing it either. I sure hope so though.

Ok, I'll have some decision to make in the next months....That pumpkinhead is a dream figure for me...So do I start saving now and take the flexpay option ?Or do I wait for some seller on ebay to sell the maquette for 200-300$ less ?Or do I buy the 21'' PUMPKINHEAD by SOTA( who by the way, looks also fantastic,if not better than this one, for 1/10th of the price of the one by sideshow)?????????? Lots of decision to make....Anyway Ill have time,I doubt this piece will ever be sold out....

Don't be too sure of that! It is limited to 1 per person, so I would suspect a low edition size! The Predator Maquette sold faster than most expected! :cool:

Very Very cool looking statue but I can't imagine more than 100 people worldwide would buy this... I'm a HUGE modern horror fan and have only seen the movie once, like 15 years ago.
It only made 4.3 million in its lifetime gross too:

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=pumpkinhead.htm

Heck, the Demon Freddy statue has an edition number of only 400 and it's been available for over 6 months and can't even sell out.
Props to Sideshow for making what I'm sure will be a freaking beautiful statue however I think this will be probably one of the least successful statues ever..

Couple of questions:

1. Is there going to be an exclusive edition.
2. Will this one be shipped from the EU warehouse.

This will determine whether i order one or not.

Hmm.... this awesome piece gives me hope for a Michael Meyers premium format for tomorrow because this movie was distributed by MGM, so I guess Sideshow is doing monsters other than New Line or Universal ones. Still... it's a possobility that New Line might have boought the Pumpkinhead rights because all these companies are in line to do remakes of old movies and stuff. :confused:

The product page lists both US and EU preorder images in the upper right-hand corner, so I would guess yes on the EU warehouse. Also, Sideshow usually states very plainly if only coming from the US warehouse.

Normally the exclusive is listed first on items like this, so I would guess no on the exlcusive, but you never know with Sideshow. :confused:

Right, but the Predator is from a film that many people adore. I'm much more of an Alien fan than a Predator one, but I bought it anyway. It's an amazing, amazing looking piece. Pumpkinhead is a FAR less important film in terms of what the average person would buy.

The Pumpkinhead maquette doesn't appear to be a Sideshow Exclusive, but I bet they don't allow more than 1 per customer simply to avoid an overinflation of the ES on this. This could wind up sitting in the SS warehouse for a LONG time if too many are made.

I'll be shocked if the ES is larger than 100 if this is a Sideshow Exclusive.
If it's a non-exclusive, than probably 250 or so can be made so that dealers can get theirs.

It's obvious that SS is involved with this purely because of Stan Winston's role in making the film. I don't think it has anything to do with MGM or New Line.

So order it anyway, and cancel it if and when the exclusive comes up.

I was thinking of using the flexi pay through SS. But there is a cancellation charge.

You are correct, there is no exclusive and if there were, it would definitely have been put up for pre-order first! And we're sorry for the confusion, but it will NOT be shipping from the EU warehouse, but it WILL qualify for the FREE shipping in the same fashion that the Predator Maquette does. The pages have been updated! :banana

Sideshow needs to look after us better. Free shipping is fine but the customs are going to roll over us on this. I have the Predator Exe on order too. $999 plus VAT at 21% plus duty is going to make it well over a grand. Why can't a percentage of these be shipped from the EU warehouse direct.

Try to talk her into to waiting to kill you until after if arrives, then she can just forward it to me and I take good care of it for you :D


Seriously though, I broke down and preordered as well.

That is a question that you're going to have to submit to customer service, using the form. I do not have an answer for you, as I am in no way associated with any of those decisions. :duff

TO BE HONEST THE MOVIE WASNT THAT GOOD, BUT WHEN I FIRST SAW IT AS A TEENAGER THE LOOK OF THE MONSTER BLEW ME AWAY !!! MUCH LIKE WHEN I FIRST SAW THE ALIEN OR PREDATOR MOVIE...THE CREATURE WAS AWESOME...SINCE I'VE GOT A FIXATION ON BIG MONSTER FIGURES ( I THINK THIS GOES WAY BACK FROM MY YOUTH WHEN I FIRST SAW THE 18'' INCH 1979 ALIEN FIGURE BY KENNER), WHEN MCFARLANE DID THIS FIGURE IN THEIR 2ND MOVIE MANIACS LINE, I WAS HOOK AND WANTED A 18'' OR 1/4 SCALE OF THIS FIGURE... SO THATS IT...

screamingmetal
10-28-2005, 02:10 PM
I love the creature, I thought the movie was all right. If I had the money for such a thing I'd much rather have the Darkness Bust then this statue. But I hope it sells well for SSC sake.
I'll just stick with my McFarlane Pumpkinhead figure for the time being.

If I pre-order this, do you think your girlfriend will kill me too? What a way to go. Are you sure you didn't do this on purpose? I think you did.

I can't wait to see the pics when you finally have it displayed.

I agree. It's a very nice piece but I'm just not that big of a fan to justify spending that much.

Now if it was a 1/4 Creature well... :D

10-28-2005, 04:33 PM
I am not a huge fan but always thought it was a really creepy monster.

JSA
10-28-2005, 04:40 PM
If it were 1/2 the price, I'd likely do it, but I can't justify that much $$$
for a critter (although cool looking) from a movie I've never seen, and that
I've heard was pretty bad. I'll have to watch the movie and see now though.

Whoa! I have seen both Pumpkinhead and Pumpkinhead 2.

The first movie wasn't bad, it was just okay. The second movie was about the same, but comparing them to find out which is better I'd say the first just because of how confusing the story gets at the end of the 2nd movie.

That said, I think the maquette looks really good for likeness and true creepyness, and it will inspire people to (maybe) watch the movie if they haven't before.

I have seen just 1 Jason movie and 2 Freddy movies and I thought they were about on par with the Pumpkinhead movies.

I think the Michael Myers movies are far superior to all of the Freddy and Jason and Pumpkinhead movies, but if I were to get any of Jason and Freddy for my own self, I'd definitely want this Pumpkinhead too.

It's like the Newborn Uruk Hai- really ugly but also really well done and impressive.


And costly- LE 100? LE 50?

Gruson
10-28-2005, 06:01 PM
Nemo, the good Nightmare movies are: 1, 3, and New Nightmare.

I personally like Friday the 13th 1,2,3,4,6 and 7. The rest are really bad. FvJ was ok...3 or 6 is probably my favorite.

Halloween 1, 2, and 4 are the best.

I plan on watching Pumpkinhead this weekend. :)

10-28-2005, 06:04 PM
Yeh New Nightmare is Def my fave. then ANOES and then nightmare 3.

To me, the only good movies from these series were Halloween 1 & 2, Friday 1 & 2 and Nightmare 1.

I am tempted to rent Pumpkinhead now to see why it deserved a 1/4 scale maquette. :)

For the outlandish price I think this piece is somewhat generic,sad to say.It might look good as part of a series with Predator and Alien,but that's a lot of cash to spend.Anyone ever see that huge garage kit of Pumpkinhead standing in a pumpkin patch leering over Lance Henrickson ?Huge,more dynamic,and more bang for the buck if you have it painted by a pro.

I wonder what is so special about this to deserve a $850 price. I know it's 27" tall but so are a lot of statues and busts out there that are close in size at nowhere near that price. (for example the Jason Statue is 21" tall at one quarter of the price and even Sauron at 24" tall is 500 bucks less than Pumpkin). At a price of $300 I bet Sideshow would STILL have a challenge selling more than 200 Pumpkinheads worldwide...
I hope I'm proven wrong but I would bet a nickel that I'm right.

I would see that nickel and raise you a ten hundred thousand pennies.

Then I would say- I bet the LE will be small, possibly less than 200 even. I really need you to call on my hundred thousand pennies... I need a Pumpkinhead ;) kidding kidding. I need the ten hundred thousand pennies to buy a full scale Terminator statue :cool:

I noticed that too but I thought it looked kinda cool with the ugly image quality- made it sort of moody if you know what I mean- the blurriness and hard-to-see quality is something that goes with spooky things.

full sized pumpkin head for 2000. I laughed at the line:
"This piece is so realistic you'll think you're in the room with him."

hahaha- any full sized item is realistic enough to make me think its in the room with me!!
