Indiana Jones ????:angelsmil

I'm not too picky at this point so I'd take anything Indy related.

Darth Waller

That second line definitely looks like "Figures", not that it helps much.

Jesseawilson
12-09-2005, 08:52 PM
Last word is deff "figure" or "Figuers".... Somebody capture that screen image so that when they figure out it isn't blurred enough and change it we will have something to go by.

It can't say "12 inch figures" or "premium format figures" - not enough room. Unless they're trying to trick us.

But look at the other things they listed as major announcements -
Marvel
Star Wars
LotR

All licenses they had, but were adding a new line. Wonder if this one is similar?

pitchin
12-10-2005, 06:14 AM
It looks like 3 words:
Superman Returns figures?

Fritz
12-10-2005, 06:28 AM
Not necessarily. It looks like the question mark has a white border around it which could be blocking out a larger word.

LOTR 12" or more LOTR Statues :)

I asked Sideshow's Dawn Sadowski last year if they had plans for a LOTR 12" line and she said they did NOT.... So unless they changed their mind, I guess nothing is coming that way, too bad.

Indiana Jones figures would rock!

Mad Max figures would too!

How about a Jack Burton figure.

Sin City would rule too, I'd love a 13" Marv.

To me it looks like it says Indiana Jones figures.

I wouldn't be interested, but a 1/4 line would rock! I'd buy tons of those.

12" Indiana Jones would rock but that's not very many figures to be a major license announcement, is it?

I just found out that next year will be the 25th Anniversary for Raiders of the Lost Ark.
That new license just might be Indiana Jones figures (preferably 1/6 ones :D ).

12-16-2005, 03:53 PM
A PF 1/4" Indy from Raiders would be awesome.

As for LOTR 12" figures, my super-secret-squirrel spec-ops insider contacts have confirmed that they are in the works... :wacky

I bought those Japanese LOTR figures a while back. I've already torn them apart and customized them. I know SSC could do it better!

Josette
12-19-2005, 06:41 AM
Only 5 days left until the announcement....

I doubt SS will do them, but I've been hoping that they get the liscense to do Harry Potter figures. There are so many character from HP that I would like to have and they would make really cool figures. And it's really one of the only (recent) major franchises that they don't have.

Isn't the speculation over..............did they not announce what it will be in the newsletter????????

bluesparrow
12-19-2005, 08:47 AM
You mean the Angel announcement? That wasn't the same as this. That's why *this* has to be a pretty big deal, a lot of people would consider the Angel announcement one but it was announced normally.

At this point it seems likely it's Harry Potter, LOTR or Indiana Jones imo. There's just not many things as big that are available.

Any of those three would be fantastic news imo. Not sure which I'd prefer... given one figure it'd be Indiana, no doubt, but I'd probably buy more LOTR figures. Harry Potter I'd just get the three main kids and Snape.

Mithrandier
12-19-2005, 08:48 AM
Sorry, I thought that the Angel line was the last one............I see that there is still yet another line to be released. It looks as if the box is going to be red.

With Harry Potter I would get Snape (one of my most wanted in 6th scale), the main trio, Dumbledore, Sirius Black, Lupin, and some of the other kids like Luna Lovegood, Ginny Weasley, Draco Malfoy, Tom Riddle - and a Voldemort as how he appeared in Goblet would be cool. I really hope they do HP some day. It would be one of the few lines that I would get most of the figures.

I don't want to get my hopes over this announcement. It would be a great Christmas present from SS if I found out they were doing Harry Potter though. I think it could be Indy, but I'm not expecting LOTR 1/6th.

12-19-2005, 11:32 AM
I'm hoping for the Indy 12" line, the whole reason I got into collecting/custom 1/6 scale figures in the first place. As for numbers of figures in the line there would be plenty.
Indiana Jones (from each film as the outfit is a bit different in each.)
Indiana Jones in german disquise
Professor Jones
Dr. Henry Jones (Connery)
Young Indy
Marion Ravenwood (in white dress)
Marion (in Raven bar outfit)
Marion (in Streets of Cairo outfit)
Willie Scott

Sallah
Marcus
Belloq
Jock and Reggie
Cairo Swordsman
German Mechanic
Lao Che

Captain Katanga
Hovitos warrior
Deitrich
Mola Ram
Grail Knight
German solder
a few, just of the top of my head.

Thanks a lot, Murder! Now you've got my imagination working, and if it's not Indy, I'm gonna be disappointed! Of course, I am running out of space to display stuff, so I was actually a little relieved when I saw the Angel announcement and thought that was the new license (because I wouldn't buy any of those). If it's a third LOTR license I can pass, and I could probably pass as well on Harry Potter. But Indy...

Darklord Dave
12-19-2005, 12:13 PM
There's absolutely no reason to think it's Indy. Given that everything else in the list is a new line from an existing license I think it will be more of the same.

Not that I wouldn't love to see an Indy line...but don't get your hopes up.

The Josh
12-19-2005, 12:18 PM
I wouldn't mind an Indy line but I would love to see a LOTR diorama line or another LOTR statue line.:D

TheObsoleteMan
12-19-2005, 01:25 PM
I hope it's a 1/6 Indy line to, then I'd only have to buy one figure from it.

bluesparrow
12-19-2005, 01:34 PM
I just hope it's 12" personally, a lot of their current lines seem a bit stagnant other than Star Wars and the Whedonverse stuff.

12-19-2005, 01:46 PM

Josette

I think that's likely, but I hope not. That would leave it to be something like LOTR 12 inch figures or Marvel 12 inch figures.

Now that I think about it, Indy doesn't seem all that likely, because I don't think it would be a major enough line. When compared to LOTR and SW, I don't think it would offer enough popular characters. Indy's popular, yes, but I don't see it as on the same level as LOTR and SW.

screamingmetal
12-20-2005, 06:06 PM
I see no reason the new announcement has to be from an existing line. I know Sideshow in the past has announced major new licenses at Toy Fair and Comic Con but It's possible they'll break away from that tradition.
Raiders of the Lost Ark does have it's 25th anniversary next year, and Sideshow has a better relationship with Lucas Film, so I think Indiana Jones in 1/6 or 1/4 is a possibility.
But LOTR or Marvel 1/6 figures would be as equally desired to be the new announcement for me.
I just hope it's in 1/6.

I forgot all about Star Trek. It never even crossed my mind. Then again, I'm a casual fan of the original series, but I'm not a fan of much of anything else to do with Trek.

3 more days...the suspense is killing me. Did they push it back a day? It seems like I remember thinking it was going to be announced Christmas Eve.

I remeber reading somewhere that Toybiz no longer has the LOTR license so my guess would be 1/6 LOTR.

Yeah Toybiz isn't renewing the LOTR license for 2006.

I don't think it's LOTR, at least based on the way it appears on the list. If you compare it with how "Lord of the Rings" appears above it, it doesn't look long enough to be the same.

My guess is that there's two words above "figure". That's just my guess, though.

I think it says 'Indiana Jones figures' and the question mark covers the 'J' of Jones. Hope they're only being announced on sunday and not up for preorder as I'll be away from a computer until next week! The very first letter looks like an 'I', and the bottom word is definitely 'figures'. It fits, anyway.

Disappointed on Christmas morning...blah. Definitely not what I was hoping for. At one time, I collected LOTR, but I pretty much sold it all with the exception of a lone Eowyn figure, and I have no interest whatsoever in these even though I'm sure they will be good.

Guess I'll have to give up my dream of getting 12 inch Harry Potter figures. Oh well, at least Majestic made my first dream come true with Dark Shadows figures.

At least I'll have the few hundred dollars I likely would've spent on HP line.

Well, not what I was hoping for either. I guess it falls under a new license, but with all the other LOTR stuff that Sideshow has done, any LOTR just doesn't seem like a new license. I guess there may be some kitbashability built in but its just not what was on my Christmas wish list.
Congrats to you rings fans!!
Betcha a Giles announcement would have brought holiday cheer to plenty of folk though.

12-25-2005, 07:46 AM
Kind of makes you think that SS really does like the LOTR fans out there and they know that they will sell like hotcakes! But, to do them all? Oh dear! Do we want dollies? Or do we want the PF? Both? Oh, my poor CC! It is really nice to know that SS appreciates the Ringers this much though! Thank you SS!

I don't think of it as a new liscense, either, and that's what I was hoping for. It's like Angel in a way - an extension of an already existing line. Angel didn't surprise or excite me because it's basically Buffy part 2 and I expected it. LOTR...I was just hoping for something new, something that hasn't been made in 1/6th scale yet.

Harry Potter was my major hope, but I could think of other lines I would've liked to have seen this turn out to be over LOTR as well (Pirates of the Caribbean, to name one).

I'm just thankful Majestic is giving me my Dark Shadows figures. I never thought I would get those in 1/6th scale.

TheObsoleteMan
12-25-2005, 01:08 PM
With the level of hype Sideshow w as giving it, I knew it had to be 1/6 LOTR. I'd probably be excited for this if the Angel line hadn't been anounced. I might pick up a Gandalf the Gray though.

Darklord Dave
12-25-2005, 02:23 PM
I'm very excited about this - I've bought all the Toybiz and DiD LotR 12" and this goes with the Star Wars and Buffy 12" as the most interesting stuff SSC is doing.

And as much as I love Harry Potter, there are really only about 10 characters that I'd be interested in as 12". But LotR is almost as rich with visually interesting characters as Star Wars.

EVILFACE
12-25-2005, 10:29 PM
No interest in collecting the LOTR figures, but I might snag a Aragorn or Ringwraith.
