Got mine! I had no interest in the regular CC (I thought the outfit looked bad, too many colors going on even though I love the head sculpt) But this Crazy Cranberry Red CC looks awesome to me. I like the cape a lot more than the jacket, too- looks more "authoritarian", regal. It's limited nature just makes it all the more special. I would have picked the red one whether it was an exclusive or not. The suit just looks more purposeful and cohesive.

CynGod
05-30-2009, 02:41 PM
I do think it will be a highly sought after piece a few years from now. He is one of the most recognizable figures / villains, and this version just adds to the diabolical side of the character. Even though he never actually "wore" this color variation, its something that you "can" imagine him wearing. How about this.......lets all just imagine that this was what he decided to wear after killing off Serpentor.......

Pre-Orders are now up for the full collectors set. While ordering, they also give the option to include the complete G1 Transformers set as well thru the same link.

http://www.transformerscollectorsset.com/

*285.00 for both which includes free 2 day shipping

(since the G.I. Joe site is not up yet....you gotta order thru the Transformers link. Just delete the Transformers from your cart and place the Joes in there instead if you don't want both)

I know I like the headsculpt, I'm just hoping the workmanship on the suit is good. I already have a Truetype body to put him on, and leather boots to replace those SS stinkers. The price point really is too high. Sideshow is just not delivering Hot Toys level figures, but they are dancing dangerously close to a Hot Toys price. I think people would get much more satisfaction if these figures were below $100, maybe closer to $75.

From the notice from the processing department:


We will begin processing all Non-Attendee orders for the Comic-con Exclusive Crimson Cobra Commander 12-inch Figure collectible (item #26142SC) on July 6th. We ask that you have the funds available on your credit card by this date to ensure the successful processing and shipment of your order.



These items are anticipated to begin shipping from our warehouse on July 17, 2009.

So basically it processes before SDCC but doesn't ship until afterwards. EDIT: my bad, it still ships before the con but it's still to early to be expecting shipping notices.

While the boots suck, the body is fine. And SS isn't anwywhere near HT prices. Both versions of CC are $100 bucks while most of HT figures are $150 or more. Hell even Wolverine is $170 and he just comes with a extra set of hands.

I certainly hope you are not referring to me. it's no crime to be discerning.
For my dollar, anything over $100 had better be damn good. I'd rather have 2 perfect $150 figures than 10 halfass $95 figures. I guess I just have higher standards.

Actually, I am. Comparing a figure that's $90 to one that's say $150 or $170 is ludicrous. There's at minimum, a 60% increase in price which would justify the increase in quality. Additionally, I have yet to see a figure in this line that's "halfassed." As a matter of fact, comparing these figures with military figures I've received from HotToys, I'd say they're quite comparable and more than worth Sideshow's price tag. Perhaps you'd be better served reserving judgment until you actually own one.

Perhaps you'd be better served reserving judgment until you actually own one.

I've owned enough figures by Sideshow to know that the quality isn't half as good as Hot Toys. Almost every Sideshow figure I buy eventually gets sold off because there are too many corner cuts and cop-outs that just drive me nuts looking at them. If SS wants to charge big prices, they need to step up the quality and fast. Crimson Cobra Commander isn't $90, he is Darn near $120 shipped. The Godfather only cost $30 more shipped, the Apes by HT coming soon are not even that much more. SS prices have continued to creep up, but I don't see a corresponding rise in quality. I have owned enough items by both companies to know that the HT figures have far, far better workmanship, scaling, paint ops, base bodies, and especially tailoring. The only decent body SS has right now is that armor body. The Prometheus is a badly proportioned, floppy piece of crap.
I have owned quite a few of the SS Snake Eye's gear, and I find myself having to replace most of the webbing because it's crap. Hot Toy's webbing is immaculate. Look at every SS necktie, all the way up to the recent Toht- it's a folded over piece of fabric with thread wrapped around it, not even a real knot. I somehow don't think it's me here that can't tell the difference in quality.
As I said, I hope this CCC impresses me, really I do, because I want a Cobra Commander very much, but so much quality gets lost between proto and production on the Sideshow figures most of the time that my buying Sideshow 1:6 is a big gamble. It hurts a lot more for me to lay out $120 for a Sideshow figure knowing what a gamble it is, than for me to drop $160 on a Hot Toys figure, because I can be pretty sure the HT figure won't disappoint.
Makes me think back to that terribly crummy Yavin Luke from Comicon a few years ago. I sent it back it was so poorly made and innacurate. I want it to be clear I'm not knocking Sideshow's artists, either- most of the time the protos look great, and the headsculpts are gorgeous, but far too often they cheap out on materials and production.

You still cant compare a CCC for 120.00, including shipping, and a Godfather for 150.00 plus, as you stated, the 30.00 shipping. That is a 60.00 difference. Plus if you are attendint the SDCC you get it for 108.00 :D

I didn't say it was $30 shipping. I said with shipping added, the Godfather cost $30 more total. In other words, a $30 difference total.
The fact remains, if Sideshow's prices are going to continue to creep up, the innovation and quality should be creeping up incrementally, too, which it does not seem to be doing. the single SS SDCC figures now cost about twice what they cost a couple years ago, but the quality is not twice as good. For the most part, the HT figures I have bought have felt like they were worth what I paid. I can't say the same for Sideshow.
I still hope to be pleasantly surprised by CCC, but I'm not getting my hopes up. At the very least I will have to move the head and clothes to a Truetype body. For $100, we should be getting a better body than the crummy Prometheus.

When did you pick up a Pro? You keep saying they have floppy joints, etc., which leads me to believe you haven't picked up any of the newer figures and are basing your opinion off of either the first release (Indy) or others posts. So not being able to say the same for Sideshow based on a figure that you bought a year ago, or other people's posts is laughable. Secondly, you think the Promethius is disproportionate but hail the TrueType with it's monkey forearms and ridiculously broad shoulders. I'm not going to look it up (hopefully he still has it) but Lerath posted a diagram of natural shoulders. Guess what? The TT failed.

Speaking of broad shoulders, if you picked up a TrueType for Cobra Commander, you're SOL. The unnaturally broad shoulders are too broad for the shirt to fit. CC's outfit is tailored for the Pro he comes on. I'm guessing CCC's is just a red variant of said outfit. The body CC came on is perfect and pretty much flawless proving Sideshow's ironed out most of the kinks. Might be best to take your hate over to a HotToys fanboy thread.

Actually, no. You're projecting bad judgment on a line you don't even collect yet. And while I am picky, I see a complete lack of rational thought in holding a $90 toy to the same expectations as one costing $150+.

I know even mentioning the CCC figure here is controversial but for what it's worth I think the CCC will look better in the throne than the regular version.

I'm in the line as a completist so I'll have the choice but I'm definitely leaning that way.

It certainly lends itself more to a throne room-type setting as opposed to the blue version with the coat (which is less-flashy and more practical) but the only possible nitpick is that the case could certainly be made that the blue highlights on the throne match the blue suit better.

Hey guys, After my CCC gets here, I will make a pattern from it that you can download to sew a cape of whatever color you want.

Ok so after a few minutes of futzing I gotta say this figure is amazing! The cape is huge. I mean really huge reminds me of the HT BB figure huge. The mags fit easy into there slots and the detail of the whole figure is great.



Well done SS.


Pics tonight!

Apparently after being teased incessantly by the "real" GI Joe figures CCC finally stepped down from the throne and took his rightful place alongside the ROC merchandise.

Mine just arrived. Pretty nice! Still don't like the Prometheus body at all, but the suit and details are pretty nice. The Prometheus is soooo wimpy. The cape is wired, that's neat. In looking at it, I actually think I could sew decent blue CC capes based on this one if anyone wants me to. Depends on what people would be willing to pay for it, because it would be time consuming. PM me about it if interested, let me know what it's worth to you, and I will start pricing fabrics. I can't wire them, but I think I can match the quality otherwise.

Edit- Funny thing? I like the box better than the figure. I'm just not 100% satisfied with Sideshow's work, and really think I can do better. Gonna make my own custom. Had to do it with Snake Eyes, I'm sure I will do it for Storm Shadow, and now I will do it for CC. I'm surprised at the nice quality of the guns, but the dropdowns are kinda sloppy. I'm going to make a for sale thread in the sale section in about 2 hours for some of his parts if anyone is interested. Someone can get a start on their Crimson Guard!

I switched the cape around on the figures. You need to pop off the heads. To be honest, it just doesn't look right, the red just clashes with the blue. It doesn't help that the cape is wedged between the head and the body.

That said, the color is obviously the only problem. Including a blue version with the throne (as some suggested for the non-existent EX) would be pretty cool.

I didn't even try to put the jacket on the CCC figure but with the red lining it would probably look pretty good.

I didn't take pictures but I'm the one who tried it and the way the cape is like tight around the neck looks bad wedged between the figures blue head and the blue shoulders on the costume.

If there was a little slack it might have looked alright but the little chain is so small that it's pretty much exactly the size of the neck peg and the heads need to be popped off to change/remove the cape.

If you look at pictures of the CCC you can sorta see what I'm talking about, it's just really noticeable when you switch and it doesn't look good.

I think the real flaw with the CCC cape is how tight the neck is, as you were saying, and that it has a sort of "collar" to it rather than it laying flat.

I'll have a great looking alternative to this on my web store tomorrow afternoon, available to you all! (Just hoping the weather is better, it was too dark here today to take decent pictures)

GuruAskew
08-02-2009, 03:40 PM
I don't think the collar is a problem when the color matches. The red cape looks good on the red figure and if Sideshow made a blue cape I'm sure it would look good no the blue figure. It just poses a problem when they're mixed.

GuruAskew
08-02-2009, 03:49 PM
Edit: I switched them again and took a quick picture. The CCC with the jacket looks much better than the regular figure with the cape:

Good job? I guess, I just did it quick, I actually have them posed and everything in their "default" clothing and I didn't bother with any of that when I took the pic, it was more just to illustrate the basic look. I also used the camera on my phone.

In any case, you can see what I'm talking about in your pic and my crappy pic, the red just clashes with the blue between the mask and the shoulders.

As promised yesterday, there is a new item available on one-sixth.com (http://www.one-sixth.com)!

I scoured the area to find a fabric that matched the original Cobra Commander's hood. Because of the limited supply of this fabric color, it will be a limited item! Please stop by if you'd like a cape that matches your non CCC Comander!
