But there isn't an Emperor figure to go with the Throne, so that isn't exactly a good comparison.

Price, better be no more than $80. It dosen't look that big.

Heh, shropt is right. Then again, it's not the classic commander. SO it kinda offsets each other.

Are you kidding, it is HUGE! Definately at least the same price as the Timber set.

What I don't get is the complaining about the price on these 1:6 environments - Han in Carbonite, Timber set, this throne, etc. There is by far MORE POLYSTONE in these sets then there is in a PF. Yet, PF cost at least $100 more. I don't see why everyone thinks these are rip offs. If anything, its the PFs that are rip offs. Sometimes people need to step back and actually see what they are getting.

Sometimes people need to step back and actually see what they are getting.

Why would PF's be ripoffs compared to a polystone environment? The environment is a solid piece that needs to be painted while the PF's have more work with making the statue in pieces, cutting/sewing the fabric for the clothes together, painting and assembly. Lot more man hours and costs to pay for there with a PF even for cheap labor.

Buttmunch
07-21-2009, 10:56 PM
I have to disagree. A large PF like the Beserker is over $300 and he is only wearing a loin cloth. The rest is polystone. I bet he only has as much poly in him as Jabba's throne or the carbonite Han set. Yet he is over $100 more. No loin cloth is worth that.

Some PF, yes, do require lots of extremley detailed clothing parts. But pound for pound Polystone, the Environements are a better deal. Yet for some reason people thing they should only be like $50. I'm just trying to show how they aren't priced as far fetched as some people seem to believe.

can't help wondering if he's gonna come with a cloak or not. no matter what, this is ALL KINDS of awesome. Loving it so very much. This is a must buy, no matter what.

Imagine this, commander sitting on it, one ankle resting on his other knee, his cane sword out, resting across his lap, a pistol in his hand, resting as if recently fired, and a dead cobra trooper at his feet, shot for insubordination.

07-22-2009, 12:44 PM
The main issue I have with the price is the material, I don't need it to be Polystone, regular plastic will do just fine.
If SSC used regular plastic I'm sure it'll be less expensive and under $100, that would get far more people buying this then if it was more expensive Polystone.

I will be getting this, but since it doesn't have an EX, I will wait until release and get it off eBay or from an online retailer.

Space is the biggest issue. That and being in the military we move every 2 or 3 years. Not to mention everytime I deploy I pack everything up before I leave, just so my wife doesn't have to in case.....

That is the biggest reason I think I will pass. I think it looks absolutely great. And if I can talk the wife into letting me take over more space in the house then who knows.

How big would that be? It'd be awesome but I'd also have to make a place inside for a cot as I'd be sleeping alone. :lol

The purpose of any accessory is to enhance the core piece. A great example of this is SSC's Jabba throne. It enhances the Jabba Sideshow produced. Here, I just think I'd wind up marveling more at the throne than the action figure who's meant to be the centerpiece. That and I don't want to have to offset another shelf to make room for the throne. It's a pain in the ass and limits the shelf above (or one of the many) to 7" figures and sometimes even smaller ones. If I wasn't getting rid of my 25th anny stuff, it might work. But since I am, to make room for the SSC stuff, not so much. :lol

:moon:moon:moon thanks for the WB kak breath! :p

Yeah, I just got overwhelmed by the sheer awesomeness of the piece and preordered it. Then, looking at it more reasonably, I'd lose a whole shelf of 1:6 to display it. Which, at this point, means I'd need to buy a whole other bookshelf or detolf and then figure out where that's gonna go and what's gonna get transferred. While I don't mind an excuse to mess around with the figures, all that just for the throne, which again detracts from Cobra Commander, seems a bit much (plus, they might not be deep enough). If/When Sideshow releases the battle-helmet version and it's chromed, I think he'll pull enough away from the throne to look good on it. So I might pick one up then. But maybe I'll go all weak in the knees and pick it up anyway when I see one for $120 next black Friday like I did the Carbo Han.

Nah, you guys, he looks more menacing on the throne. Sure they had CCC on the Throne at SDCC, but he looked dang good on it. Plus you have the troopers flanking the throne as body guards (until the Crimson Guards come that is). It will be a tight fit for me too, but I've got the room for it.

See, IMO, no. That throne is hands down cooler than the Bradstreet Commander. From the menacing viper to the rungs on the steps, it completely takes away from Cobra Commander who it's supposed to emphasize. As for seeing it in person, doesn't matter, but the sheer size would likely be reinforcing my decision to cancel. I took down the measurements, cut a couple of dowels and stuck them together to see what kinda space I'd need. I'd lose an entire shelf of 1:6 for the throne. If the collection was going to be as sparce as Indy, I'd be all for it. But since I expect to have shelves loaded with Joes and Cobras, I'd rather have an equal display with the focal points being the leaders and, I know I'm pressing it, one entire case of Joes and one of Cobras.

Of course, as I said earlier, take this with a grain of salt if I see it for $120 on a Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal. :lol

I was totally the same way with Jabba. That was 2006 since the first time I went was bascially my "senior trip" and I graduated on 6-6--6. They still haven't topped Jabba as a jaw dropping piece at SDCC. 2007 was a total disapointment when they just had Bespin Luke and Illum Padme to show off.

A lot of times, when people discuss the price of these dio bases, rarely are they factoring in shipping. The HT Powerloader MSRPed at like 250, but it wasn't generally 250 out the door, shipping at that time was probably 20 bucks.

Apparently these bases are heavy as hell to boot. I gotta wonder if the best way to grab these are at shows ( if people are lucky enough to be geographically close to a show)

Those that are worried can simply have their local comic book shop order them. Most have a link to Sideshow and you're more likely to nab these at a retailer discount (usually like 10%) and save on shipping.

IIRC, SST did not make a Gimli for their LOTR line. If SST sold more of the existing LOTR figures they did make, I'm taking a guess Gimli could have been a better chance to have been made. But that didn't happen.

The formula isn't complex.

If you don't consider potentially everyone who might buy your product, there's a good chance your product doesn't sell as good as it might, then there's a good chance that your line will be cut short, where there's a good chance that more consumers will be hesitant to jump into a line because they think the brand will never complete it.

You can only leave fans hanging so many times before they decide the tease and pulling the football out from under Charlie Brown routine will keep working.

I want SST GI Joe to be a success, because it means they will keep making more. But I want it to be a success at the highest quality possible at the best bang for the buck. Some of you act like SST could do absolutely nothing at all to improve it's Joe line. There's always room to improve. It doesn't have to be my suggestions, but we as consumers will never get more until we demand more.

I think the majority here now, would agree that this is exactly what we're getting with the Joe line. When you compare the Indy in German Disguise with the Cobra Trooper, both were the same price, I think it's easy to see that we're not only getting considerably more quality with the Joe line, but handsdown, more accessories as well.

You can say that again!!!

thenammagazine
01-24-2010, 08:24 PM
If you like the line, I suspect you want it to remain viable and producing new product as long as possible.

If SST makes stuff that doesn't sell, or sell well as it could, we as consumers lose in the end. There's a difference between no interest period and no interest in what's offered. Gimli might have been made if SST made better choices across the board with their LOTR line.

This is not a good economy. People are leaving the hobby across multiple levels of interest. People are watching what they spend and focusing their hobby budgets. Everyone? Probably not. Quite a few? I'd say yes.

This is not an era like the dot com boom where there was money flowing out of the street.

There's a reason why multiple SST lines have died ( Buffy, POTA, LOTR, etc) with what some might consider prematurely. The common denominator in those cases is SST itself.

If people want to see a Scarlett RAH and she never materializes because SST kills the line one day, maybe folks ought to think to ask why that might happen. Or why it might have happened in the past.

You're ignoring EF's question though. Specifically, how could they have modified the COBRA THRONE to be more appealing to military collectors?

They couldn't. The Cobra Throne is pretty strickly a GI Joe or Snake Worshipper item.

Who asked you?! :p

MeatHook was asked a valid question by EF, based on a statement he made here in the Cobra Throne thread (say that fast 5 times). MM has been "spinning" his answers because, as we all know, he doesn't have one.

I think from the way Meathooks arguments are going that he is a hardcore military fan and not a hardcore gi joe fan..( maybe casual).

Firstly SST aren't trying to ( dont want to ) appeal to the hardcore military market. Could they? Yes! But they want to appeal to the G.I Joe market. I believe that they originally overestimated the size of the G.I. Joe market,based on the ES of SE and CC ( Which is still available). Since those figure their ES seems to have dropped by a 1000 all round and prices haven't really risen(Considering SE was 120).

Even with a smaller market they are still making figures for the Joe fans first. Every figure resembles their character with a unique look and accessories. Would hardcore military fans buy them, I doubt it. SE would look odd next to Swat member ver.1 and 2. And Duke would look even more out of place next to US Army Ranger and British military tank commander.

I understand where you're coming from when you say that the figures should come with more gear. Look at any modern military figures and the amount of gear they come with is astounding...too much IMO.
If the Joes came that loaded it would take away from their characters completely. They originally only had one o1 or 2 weapons and a backpack. To be fair I dont think SS needs a microphone headset with night vision mount,sunglasses, light sticks, compass etc...

Remember that these figures come with licensing fees so the price is understandable. All in all SSC is making G.I.Joe figures for Joe fans, no one else as evidenced by their decidion to revisit FFs camo head. If the hardcore military fan buys the odd Joe or cobra that he likes the look of like FF then good for them, which is good for the line, but SST is not going to lower the autenticity of the Joes for profits. At least not yet........

Also I have serious doubts about the females in this line. I imagine most collectors are in it for the Male figures. I know I am, but that could change.

The main thing is there are lots of companies out there making military figures and equipment. But Sideshow is the only one making GIJoe: A Real American Hero figures.

Those that are worried can simply have their local comic book shop order them. Most have a link to Sideshow and you're more likely to nab these at a retailer discount (usually like 10%) and save on shipping.

Remember also that there are a few vendors out there who ship for free too. So you will receive the 10% vendor discount and possibly free shipping (that's how I'm going to order mine). :D

I have no doubts Baroness and Scarlett will be successful releases. The other female figures I have doubts based on the character designs (covergirl and lady jaye seem pretty bland)...but if this line goes 20 or 30 figures deep I'd be happy with just those 2 female figures.

If the line goes for 8 years and we have 50 figures, then probably I'd want more female characters...

With Flint PPOing on Friday, Lady Jaye will be a must. I also think Zarana would sell fairly well too. I can see Sideshow going all out with her javelins as well as kitting her out with an SMG of sorts. My only concern would be how they handle the head. Sculpted hat? Or removable?

I forgot about Jinx. But being a ninja, she'd be an easy sale too, especially if SS is smart and keeps the ES lower since people like Prog don't like having figures with boobies in their collection. :p

:confused: Maybe I said as much by saying I don't need Lady Jaye or Covergirl...but I didn't intend to say they weren't important. I'm just saying both of their designs don't implore me to buy them as much as most Joes do (including Baroness and Scarlett who are musts). Them being chicks don't really play a role in me wanting or not wanting to collect them as much as how cool their outfits are.

Yeah Scarlett is a must for me but if she was the only female released I'd live with that, even a little more would be better. Although I can assume if the 25th had trouble selling more females outside of Scarlett, Baroness and Lady Jaye then I don't think they'll be any more with Sideshow.

Entirely different. The 25th Anny while paying homage to the 80's RAH was still geared primarily toward kids. Sideshow's line isn't. It's more geared toward adult collectors who can actually appreciate the roles these women played in the franchise.

Neither Marion nor Galadriel kicked as much ass as Scarlett or Baroness. Scarlett's relationship with SE and then with Duke added depth to the storyline and made the Joe story seem more grounded than the cartoon (and 90% of the other comics of that time). As for the Baroness, it's always good to see a gold digging, manipulative broad who's not afraid to use her assets (:naughty) to play two powerful men against each other while wielding dual Calicos and kicking serious ass. They were always more than just arm candy or minor plot points.

I thought the Machiko figure was cool and the Bride is the Bride! So I have no qualms with that.

Well I just started collecting 1/6 figure last year with Snake Eyes! And that was a big enough step at the time, buying a proper " Doll" figure. I since have all the Joes but, I don't think I'm ready to buy female figures yet....Maybe next year :D

It's no different than getting any other G.I.JOE.

If that ever happens, I strongly suggest you do the ol' "Evilface's laughing wife" counter. ;)

Seriously though, who gives a ____ what your friends think? You spend too much time worrying about pleasing everyone, you're never gonna be happy. Just collect what looks cool to you. The only reason they'd laugh is because they're closet faeries not comfortable enough with themselves to appreciate something like that.
