I have it on good authority that the exclusive will be an extra Anakin charred
head WITH removable arms & legs AND the operating table that
transforms him into the suited Vader!

OH! & my good authority was Santy Clause that visted me last night in my sleep.
He told me ALL about it...

I wonder if it'll be the holo sideous on the SS homepage.

I posted the following last night at the end of the "Anakin Unpainted" thread. Here's my wish for the exclusive, last sentence...


Anakin unpainted. Yes, another dead-on Andy triumph and I hope the production paint job lives up to it.

I had wondered if the hair was molded separately. I don't believe Sideshow has done this before, have they? Interesting because that's what makers do to put glass eyes into the heads. Arnie Kim's Bruce Lee figures are molded this way; it's one reason they look so lifelike. Same goes for many of the Asian figures for whom others here have posted links -- Doggy's customs, etc. If Sideshow starts doing this...watch out.

And of course, for Anakin you could have regular eyes or yellow sith eyes..

Now, after today we can discuss the customizing possibilities that come with a head molded out of two pieces...interchangeable eyes...

There's a bunch of good suggestions in this thread:

It's a hologram of Sidious.

pretty kewl, but that would be a item for Darth Vader, not JEDI Anakin Skywalker.

Anakin did contact Sidious after he was sent to Mustaphar to slaughter everyone there, so a hologram Sidious would make sense.

wonder if it is going to fit in the palm of his hand? Might be pretty cool.
I was hoping for Dooku's Saber.

True, but from chopping the hand off Mace on he is Darth Vader, not just when he goes into the suit.

Still, a nice accessory.

That Sidious hologram looks like one of those fruit gummy bears...:naughty

It does, hope it is made better than the one that came with AOTC Dooku, mine feels all gummy and sticky now, like it is melting lol.

that's a lame exclusive. anything less than dooku's head is a waste.:horror

I like it - great idea. Dooku's head? No thanks - his saber? That would have rocked.

dooku's saber would've been better. especially so you can pose him with the dooku 12" (you know its gonna happen eventually) and take off his hands.

Likewise. The subscribers finally get an advantage, thats not much of an advantage at all if you can't get thru. :banghead

I was hoping for the Sith Eyes head, but this is kind of kitchy. Feels like a tip-o-the-hat to Hasbro. I'll definitely display it!

yeah the sith eyes would've been nice too.... maybe ill bust out the paint and customize it a little??

You know, Hasbro has mini Hologram figures just like the Sideshow one, (maybe a little bigger) that are coming out in the next wave of Star Wars 3 3/4" Star Wars figures, they are random pack ins. And I believe one is Sidious. So if you miss out on the exclusive Sideshow one, the Hasbro one could be used as a substitute.
Personally, I would've preferred Sith eyes or hair molded with a head set in place as the exclusive.

I noticed there was no Mini Binoculars in the description, I would've thought all Jedi have them, but maybe it's an unofficial piece of Jedi Equipment.
Didn't Obi-Wan use them in ROTS?

I have to say that the Hasbro Dooku is one of their better figures. The headsculpt is actually very good, plus it uses the better body.

That's a good idea, probably even fit on his palm better.

Next to Anakin, the hologram didn't look like 2.25"...more like 2.25cm. I realise it's only a prototype and the pic could be deceptive but did anybody else think it looked, eh, tiny?

I sort of feel like the robot arm (which looks amazing!) was going to be the exclusive, but they changed their minds and quickly did up the hologram-thing. It's all good. I'm looking forward to receiving it!

Or perhaps Dooku's saber was going to be the exclusive and they decided - "well that's lame 'cause we're eventually going to do Dooku."

Yeah, not much point in having Dooku's sabre without Dooku himself.

Heehee. You said, "do Dooku." :dump

If people went ape over Lukes blaster, they would have burned cities if Anakins robot arm was the exclusive.

Anyone know if the Holo Sidious will be able to fit on or connect to Anakin's Holograph projector? It would look similar to Commander Cody's scene holding the portable projecter when Sidious told him to execute order 66.

I guess this means a Commander Cody won't come with a Sidious Hologram unless it is a different sculpt/size.

Edit: For those that missed out, you may want to track down this figure

The holo Sidious is about the same size, maybe a little bigger or smaller, as the Sideshow one.

I dont like the idea of getting holograms as exclusives all the time. One blue gummy bear is quite enough, thank you very much :o
