Looks really good, decent likeness of Jake Gyllenhaal. :D

Thanks Sideshow. I can save even more money now.:yess:

Weren't we supposed to be getting an animated pf next? I was really hoping for something cool.:(

I'm hoping they don't keep putting off more animated pf statues, so they can do stuff like this.:slap

they are trying to make another franchise like POTC...


Will the Hot Toys figure have a better likeness that is the question..

That actually kinda looks like Jake. Pretty good, but aren't PFs supposed to use realistic materials? The outfit looks like some of the parts should be leather or soft goods, but they're just sculpted on the PF.

Don't think SideShow would do it,because the chest vest should be some kind of metal and it isn't.:slap

Why bother calling PF, if 90% is sculpted.:cuckoo:

When did they start releasing PF's like Happy Meal toys? The movie should stand on it's own before a PF...

Im predicting this movie is going to suck...big time

The one thing that buggs me the most about this PF is that it looks like they used the same skinny arms and shoulders from the Rambo PF.

Anyway....definitely a HUGE pass for me.

Unless the movie turns out to beat all the odds and be amazing, or at least amazingly entertaining, and JG gives an unexpectedly awesome lead performance to boot, I can't ever imagine a world where I would want to own this PF, even if it does look like a solid enough effort on Sideshow's part.

This feels kinda like making a pf of Nicolas Cage from National Treasure, or Brendan Fraser from The Mummy, just all kinds of wrong, as even if you enjoy the films in question, they hardly seem memorable enough or original enough to make high end statues of, you know? Such disposable films just don't seem worth that kind of effort to me.

I can't see why they decided to do this as the next in the Disney line. I didn't even know it was a Disney film until I saw the preview for this statue. I totally agree with what others have said, about this film not being memorable enough to have a PF made.:dunno

but the title itself is Prince of Persia.
However, I prefer the lead actress.

I know Sideshow doesn't typically put this much time and effort into an untested property before the film is released--I wonder how much Disney "encouraged" them to draw attention to the new movie?

I took my kids to see it and I fell asleep about a half hour into it.

One would think it must have something to do with it, given Disney's massive live action library, why pick this over something like say Tron or the Black Hole, for example.
Let alone all the animated feature characters, which, what with Captain Jack and the Rocketeer now out of the way, I would think is the most wanted in a Disney PF line. Since lets face it, when you say Disney, it's the animation that ones thinks of first.

the good thing is if they don't presell many they don't have to make many. ssc really has it easy, no guess work.

Yeah, but that only works to a point. It still cost a fair bit of money to develop and produce a prototype. You have all the research and design (which in this case is really a one off, not going to be able to use any of that again), you got all the sculpting cost, cloth development, production of the paint masters, all the box/packaging design, artwork, development.
Then of course you still have to get them all made in China, so production costs, shipping, admin overhead, etc, etc.

So in the end, the ES can't be too small, otherwise it's a loss, but of course in this case, if no one really wants it, then an ES that's too large, ensures it won't sell at anything near retail.

ProgMatinee
06-04-2010, 08:47 PM
true. but they're able to profit on items like the dead pfs that they only make 1000. granted, no licensing cost, but i'm betting if disney really forced ssc's hand in making this item then the licensing wouldn't be too high. but your points well taken.

theguru1
06-04-2010, 08:58 PM
Mind you, they can only make a loss on so many items, before it starts to really hurt, but yeah, a one off isn't likely to be that big a deal, I'd say the ES will more go for 'break even'.

One interesting thing that I just noticed, which others may not have, is that this doesn't fall under the Disney PF section, it is in fact part of the video games, so maybe more separate from the actual Disney PF line.

Exactly. This thing is a joke, a flippin Happy Meal Toy.

I am just jealous it came out so awesome and there are SW and LOTR PF's that didn't. It kills me, it kills meeeeeeeeee~!:monkey2

Just got back from seeing this in theaters.....what a total yawn-fest. This felt like another rehash of the scorpion king, or the mummy or clash of the titans. Nothing in this movie "wowed" me or held my interest....infact I started getting a little sleepy near the middle. In any event...I dont want to own anything from this movie.

True, true. However a lot of movies who do poorly at the boxoffice often rake in the dough in movie rentals and DVD/Blu-ray sales.

Like I said...Disney made some money, not blockbuster money, but some.

I don't understand, it wasn't a hugely succesfull game series (it was a frikking GREAT game series, 'cept the last couple, but didn't sell like your GTA's and Halo's etc) why make a movie of it in the first place let alone a PF?

Somewhere Gylenhall is gazing into his own PF's eyes going "I wish I knew how to quit you Jake".

That's true, tho at the same time, if many that went to see it and walked out feeling 'yeah, whatever', then DVD sales aren't going to be the best.

However, even if it has done so-so, that's a fair step away from spending $300 on a statue. And given that the US market only hit $64m so far and I think it's fair to say that the US is SS biggest market, it doesn't really bode well for the PF.

But if you're a predominantly statue collector, I'd say go for it if you enjoyed the movie or games (or if you're just a sucker for detail :nana:)

I've been wanting this piece for a while now but there's always something else that I'd prefer to get. If/ when I do get him, I plan to use some epoxy putty to redo the hair then get my tailor friend to make him the other 2 belts he wore in the film (totall of 3 all the same) since this PF for whatever reason only comes with 1 belt

I'm still in shock that they made this in the first place... the time and resources wasted on this that would have been far better spent on Snow White, Belle, The Beast, etc.

But to each their own I guess.

Fair enough, but the movie was a pretty big success worldwide. I personally really enjoyed the movie and I'm a big fan of Jake G so it's something that I think would make a really awesome addition to my PF collection. :D

Bought. Not because I liked the movie so much but the clothing is almost the same like in Warrior Within (video game) which was a great game. Only difference to the video game version of the prince seems to be that he only wears 1 belt instead of 3.

Nice pics! We don't have too many in hand ones to look at unfortunately so thank you :)

I still wish I had the money at the right time for this. Would've loved repainting it along with other slight mods
