As seen in the Comic Con Star Wars Panel video from SSC. She was cute but I'm not that interested in her as a 1/6th figure. Thoughts?

Maybe this is a test-run of a new body type that they can use on Jawas and smaller alien types. I don't know anything about the CW series, but I would easily pass on this one anyway. I hope maybe they can tweak the body for use on Jawas or something.

I've got a feeling that this may be the 2 1/2 pack mentioned earlier this week, i can see her coming with the two clone troopers from the episode also a little further on in the video there is a picture of two troopers with yellow decals on there helms that look allot like the troopers in the show.

I wondered why they were painting the Phase 1 clones with the Utapau trooper color. It makes sense though if SSC does want to do a 21/2 pack, two Phase 1 clones and Numa. That means if you want the Utapau painted clones you will have to buy Numa :lol.

Just speculation at the minute but it makes sense and those two troopers are definatly the two from The Clone wars, i like it i've got no interest in the kid but i love clones.

Eh, assuming the 2.5 figure set is two Troopers and Numa, I would hope SSC would cut some kind of discount on the price. As it is, we can already army-build Phase 2 Utapau Troopers, since they've already been released. I just don't see SSC being able to convince enough people to army-build Phase 1 Utapau Troopers off of the CW series.

Just seems like two CW Troopers and a CW side-character is just a wierd choice for an "all eggs in one basket" type set.

This maybe the most wtf choice I've seen... I barely remember that character and about as unimportant as you can get.

But, hey... its SW, and variety is always been the key word. No interest in buying, but looking to see what other things they drop on us.

i'd rather have an Ahsoka.

i wish they would have released both versions of the helmets with all the clones from the start. i like the CW/phase I design better.

:lecture:lecture

I want a FLOOD of new character figures to be done. The more choices, the better for all.

But not at the cost of Chewie and the droids. It's almost getting ridiculous that these iconic characters are continually getting pushed back for whatever reason. If SS can price tiny Yoda at $75 and the vast majority of collectors don't bat an eye, I can only imagine what the droids and Chewie will be priced at when they are finally released in the far future... :monkey4

They said in that video that we will be surprised by some of the choices of characters Sideshow makes. So maybe we all better get ready for some characters that are not on our immediate want list.

That is actually easy for me to do as I kind of prefer to have the background characters as springboards to better mainline characters.

I think Waxer and Boil are the 2 clones in the animated series that first come across Numa,so as someone said above,this could be the 2 and a 1/2 set SSC have hinted at.

Puay
07-25-2010, 01:17 AM
It would be an easy pass for me if its really Numa with the 2 CW troopers.

I would rather have the red, yellow or green phase I Clones from AOTC.

With Numa's body, hope to see young Anakin in time.

Yeah, Waxer and Boil are the ones that found her. I can't see the point in getting her without getting them.

I'd like to see Sideshow go all out on these and give them the right armor deco and interchangeable heads without helmets.

I just watched that episode last night, and it was actually pretty cool, so I can see SSC releasing Numa with Waxer and Boil as long as those two have their specific markings. I still have to chuckle at Numa being developed so soon though. What'd they say, "Hey let's make a young alien girl from the new series, you know that one about the adventures of Anakin and his padawan. But hmmm, who should we make...I know, Numa!" :lol

blue_rogue
07-25-2010, 09:09 AM
Sideshow is definitely on a Twi'lek kick right now.

1/4 Talon was just released and 1/4 Aayla and 1/6 Numa are in development.

Maybe a 1:1 Bib bust isn't far behind...

Maybe the kid will be an exclusive...like they'll charge 50 bucks more, but it means that people won't have to buy multiples of her if they want just the clones to army build...

Also, I'm all for crazy choices, like the Darth Talon PF...:drool...

But this seems just a bit too nuts...

The Craw
07-25-2010, 10:17 AM
yeah this pak will cost over $250. i don't see alot of people biting. you'd think they could lower the price on these clones a little. they make so damn many of them and they are all the same parts with a new paint job.

I find it an odd choice but if it is a 3 pack with Waxer and Boil I would be down. As for Numa on her own I would pass. I do think that episode was really good though.

Scoob77
07-25-2010, 12:15 PM
If they do Waxer and Boil in the right deco I would definitely buy and I would consider Numa as an accessory like Rotta with Anakin. I was thinking of doing those two characters myself if I could score a couple of phase one clone helmets loose. I for one love the idea of multipacks like this if they scene specific and not EU.

Some will want those clones though, regardless of the stick figure girl, just because of the slightly different looks for Morrison. The different looks are almost as endless as the coloring on the armor.

It's a "collect them all" thing. We all went thru it at some point in our youth.

I'm glad these are EU Characters so its not essentail like the Blackhole Stormtrooper . SS is making it easier to be selective .Plus I'm pretty sure we'll see arouind a $250.00 price tag.

Next Year I'm pretty much just sticking to figures from the 6 films.

The thread it only 30 minutes old... I'm sure somebody will post that they like 'em. :)

What a bunch of crybabies. This is probably just one of hundreds of things Sideshow has coming out in the next two years. Everybody acts like each reveal is the end the world. What is that shi_t about?

I love this idea! And for what it is, I think the execution of it is top notch. Just because they didn't make something I'm waiting for like 1/6 Boba Fett or Short Round YET, it doesn't mean these suck, and it doesn't mean that the G.I. Joe line is dead. I'm not a huge fan of the Clone Wars cartoons even though some episodes do have some pretty good stories and I watch it weekly anyway, but I love that Sideshow is making the most of the opportunity. Clones Wars gives different characters to the Clones, and I don't mind having different Clones in my lineup besides just this color and that color Trooper. I like knowing that a couple of them have had memorable adventures.

And Numa is a special add-in, not the whole focus of the set, so who gives a rats ass if she has articulated arms. Does she need to have an action pose?

Its a dumb choice that could have been used on ANYTHING ELSE for ANY OF THE OTHER 1:6th LINES.... oh ya there is only one other..

I actually think SS has done a great job with the SW line so far and they impressed me with each release. But some choices are just dumb from a business standpoint, this is one of them.

Im not exactly sure how it works, but I wonder if SS has gathered a large group of retailers to this point and they are forced to buy some of these to sell.

Seems odd to reveal unmasked clones so closely on the heels of the Cody figure. If no other Morrison sculpt was on the horizon, there'd probably be more interest in this set.

i think it's neet. i wanted a Uptau color clone that wasn't having ragdoll syndrome, and i prefer the Phase 1 helmets, so Yay.

The majority of the gripes are simply due to the fact that we get yet another release of beyond-tertiary non-film characters while many significant first tier characters continue to be ignored.

This set is simply a quick and easy release, pure and simple. Rehashed Utapau's with new helmets. Throw in two headsculpts and the green kid for variety.

I'm sure we'll see LANCE and BIKINI-LINE with NOAA 12" Figure Set soon as well.

Clones are just too needlessly expensive.
With all the mileage they've gotten out of the armor body and the armor molds, these guys could be $60 each and even these guys would sell great even with the unarticulated girl.
I would've liked to see more joints because this body will be used for other small characters as well.

Revan and Bane would have been better received only because they are NOT apparent rehashed clones. And even then, not everyone would have been thrilled. I agree with your assessment regarding financial and space issues, though. Which leads us to...

Excellent point regarding cost on the clones and the unarticulated NUMA body.

I may be wrong but I think that the NUMA body along with the upcoming Yoda appendages will be the bases for Jawas.

What worries me is that fact that SS seems to be out of touch with how things are right now. I mean, should I, or anyone be buying TOYS right now, during a recession?? Nope. But we are. We save and work hard and we buy these things. I LOVE TOYS, don't get me wrong, but limited cash and display space has me getting way more picky these days. I'd grab this set if it were 3 3/4, but at 1/6th scale!? Sorry Sideshow. :slap

I really hope they don't take a huge loss on this, so they can continue the line so that I can have the MAIN CHARACTERS from the MOVIES in my collection someday. But seriously Sideshow, how long do you think we'll wait? Your incomplete LOTR 1/6 set has me a bit nervous.

This makes good business sense for Sideshow. The Clone Wars cartoon is huge with kids...it's to them what the original Star Wars was to us. The collectors of our generation aren't going to be around for ever, Sideshow needs to market to a generation of new collectors. I can imagine old school SF collectors back in the day mocking things like Jabba. Each generation has it's own likes and dislikes. Clone Wars is huge and it would be stupid for them to ignore it. The 9 years who watch this cartoon now will hopefully still be fans into their 20s and 30s and will remember that this was the show that got them into Star Wars in the first place.

I don't think the Clone Wars will cool off at all. I don't think people realize just how popular it is with kids. There are tons of kids with Clone Wars gear for school and one of the busiest places at CV was Ashley Eckstein. Yes these kids aren't going to buy 200 dollar Sideshow stuff now, but would we have when we were 7 or 8 when Star Wars first came out? Of course not..but we are buying them now even though the movie is over 30 years old. Sideshow is figuring/hoping the same thing will happen with this generation.

I actually like these. It's great to see Sideshow making unique clone trooper portraits. These guys will look great with Clone Wars Anakin and phase 1 Cody, and the inevitable Ashoka.
That said, I won't be buying due to space restrictions that have forced me down the OT only route (for now!!!).
I don't see why people are so upset by this choice. The Clone Wars is currently what we have and Sideshow are right to make clone wars figures. I can't wait to see what they do with Cad Bane. It seems like some on this board take it as a personal insult if each figure isn't on their wish list. Personally I'm glad when I can pass on figures, it gives my wallet a much needed rest!!!

If someone doesn't like the figure they don't have to buy it. Clearly if you don't like the Clone Wars you won't buy these guys.

Good point, Brinn. If they keep going this way releasing third tier characters that don't sell well, Sideshow's going to claim "lack of interest in the line" and end it before we ever see Chewie, the droids, etc.

That said, I think the Boil and Waxer set would sell okay if they had been announced alone and it's the inclusion of Numa that's throwing people off.

I've wanted this set (or at least the adorable little Twi'lek) since I saw that episode. Which, btw, was one of the most emotional and wonderful bits of Star Wars ever committed to screen. If you've never seen it due to some ridiculous anti-Clone Wars sentiment, it's your loss.

Sorry this hurts your butt so much, but don't buy it. Done. :peace

The sculpts are not too shabby - I will probably pick them up. Not a great exciting choice by SST, but they need to make their money where they can and I think this will sell to their liking. As for people talking about interest in this line dying off and it getting cancelled... uhmm, yeah - really? Never happen... ever.

Not sure I understand the moaning here.

1)We knew these were coming from SDCC.
2)We knew for the past 5 years that once SSC started on clones we would keep seeing them for the rest of our natural born lives.
3)If you haven't been complaining about every other clone made thus far, why start now?
4)At least with Numa they are starting to show they are thinking outside the box a little.

Look closely at that video and you will see there are actually 4 Clones standing there so probably one helmet per clone. I called this one as soon as I saw the SW Panel video I spotted the unfinished Numa and then saw the four Utapau clones and sure enough it's a 3 Pack. I really liked that episode because it shows that the clones are more than mindless drones clambering to catch a laser blast in the head. And Numa was calling Waxer and Boil "nara" ?spelling which Obi-Wan confirmed means friend. Again a very good episode:clap :clap.
And Yes I will be buying this set, my 10yo Daughter and I both enjoy the clone wars series and despite the fact Sideshow hasn't already released everything else first I think the timing for this is excellent. Star Wars OT and PT have no signs of ever going away whereas the Clone Wars series will fade but is Hot with fans (kids) right now and keeps the franchise cooking. So you might wanna just think about easing up some on the criticism because if it keeps the franchise selling it keeps Sideshow in business and it keeps us in new OT and PT collectibles. :wave




just been back and checked out that comic con panel video
- if the images are right they should come with two helmets each - if so i may be moved to buy - as i dont already have a 212 clone
but only if they are cheap enough and nothing else better takes my money

For a clone collector, I'm "meh" about this. Already have the Utapau and getting these guys kinda means Cody wears his "phase 1" bucket which makes the Emperor holo completely useless. What concerns me more is the Barbie-like Numa. First Yoda has Marvel Legends articulation and now Numa with her cut shoulders, lack of elbow articulation and post neck? If this is the halfassed route Sideshow's going to take with the harder (smaller) figures, looks like it's time to just tap.

regarding articulation, i think you have to take an individual approach to each figure. I think the bare arms, and lack of needing to have a dynamic pose, spoke towards the straight arms for Numa.

I'm sure if SSC gets around to doing a Jawa or Ugnaught for example, that the figure would have articulation.

I have no problem with exposed joints. It's an action figure. It's supposed to have joints. :lecture:lecture:lecture:exactly:

LOL. I'm with you 90% of the way. If this were a figure that actually had an accessory (like a lightsabre or gun) that required to be posed, then of course articulation trumps the aesthetic.

But this is Numa we are talking about. What pose are we looking at that needs articulation with her?

IMO, they struck the right balance of aesthetic and posability. At least they offer the head articulation.

One item that could have been more successful without articulation was the spider droid.

I disagree. She should be able to sit on the ground, cradling her knees, put her hands on her hips, etc. Besides, with the sheer amount of articulation Hasbro's getting out of their 3 3/4" figures, there's really no excuse. That said, if Sideshow's going to resort to halfassed Barbie articulation, I expect the price to match. Especially with how blatantly obvious she'll stand out on the shelf among the other Sideshow releases (in a bad way), with her straight arms and grip hands.

I agree. I hope this isn't a new trend for Sideshow--first with the Gammy and now this. I can even accept the Gammy's lack of articulation because the sculpt is so complex. But this?

Doesn't strike me as any different than Timber.
Most Sideshow SW figures have little-to-no visible articulation. There's Aayla Secura. She looks awful and stands out far worse than I think this will.
I'm generally pro-articulation but on something this small and this marginal a character I don't see the big deal.

I don't think the Clone Wars will cool off at all. I don't think people realize just how popular it is with kids. There are tons of kids with Clone Wars gear for school and one of the busiest places at CV was Ashley Eckstein. Yes these kids aren't going to buy 200 dollar Sideshow stuff now, but would we have when we were 7 or 8 when Star Wars first came out? Of course not..but we are buying them now even though the movie is over 30 years old. Sideshow is figuring/hoping the same thing will happen with this generation.

I've no doubt Clone Wars is very popular with kids, Hasbro has gone on record stating that Clone Wars toys are vastly outselling Saga figures. But Sideshow's customers are not Hasbro's customers.

And I'm not quite sure a pretty blond girl at a convention for "nerds" is such a great indicator of long-lasting popularity as much as it is an indicator of the long-lasting popularity of pretty blond girls.

This pack is going to be at least $250. And that much cash for such tertiary and ultimately insignificant characters is downright mind-boggling.

I don't necessarily disagree with you. All SSC figures are overpriced in my book, but the same thing could be said for tertiary characters like faceless sandtroopers or any other faceless ROTS clones which range from $90-$120 each.

Think back to when we were little kids..sure we won't buy a Sideshow 1/6 then but we are buying them now. What I'm trying to explain is that kids are falling in love with Star Wars through the Clone Wars cartoon...to them it's the beginning. Years from now, if they are still into Star Wars they will collect the line. Or people of our age group who have kids into the cartoon, we might buy these guys for them. It might be an insignificant character to you, but others happen to like the clones. A company who has a narrow focused line will surely fail. Sideshow is trying to please fans of the OT, the prequels and now the Clone Wars. Again, I don't want every OT figure released right away..it's nice to take a break now and then. I think it's a smart business model.

By that same rational, a company that makes umpteen rehashes of the same figure will also surely fail. We saw this when Sideshow basically killed The Dead and ran off several collectors with 3 Tactical Operator variants and 4, count 'em, 4 Babysitters. As a result, the following offerings were less popular despite being better designed. Most of us were fine with the first 212th Clone Trooper. Now we're getting two more, likely nowhere near as weathered, and a blue skipper doll. I'm all for catering to EU needs, but at least pick characters with substance. The Clone who went AWOL to marry the Twi-lek would've been a better choice here than two variant 212th troopers.

I for one am very excited for this multi pack. I mainly collect armored characters and since I don't see a Biker Scout or Snowtrooper on the horizon Clones are the only game in town. Between Medicom and Sideshow I have about 15 various clones and have been customizing them so they all look a little different. With Rex and Cody we now will have 4 very different style clone headsculpts to army build with so that is good to see. And for those of you CW haters while not every episode is perfect you are missing some pretty good SW stories that are slowly tying into the mythology of the OT so don't dismiss it because of the movie. Like any TV series it takes a little while to find it's stride and I think CW now has.

But these are at least different characters..the babysitter was a joke. Look at all the amazing things that they've announced this year..greedo, hammerhead, gammy, yoda and his freaking house, ig-88...yes there are some clones that are similar, but they clones. :) Some fans who love Star Wars love troopers...these 2 are obviously for them. Some fans love aliens..hammerhead and greedo are for them. Some collectors just want the iconic pieces, stormtroopers, vader and the emperor are for them. The clones are also based on real characters...well kinda real. :) The pink, purple, green, rose, yellow, polkadot, and tie dyed babysitter is completely different...that was obviously milking the cow beyond belief. I give Sideshow props for reaching out in the line. And it's not like anyone got killed because they announced these figures.

Narrow-focused?!?! Star Wars is entirely TOO broad as it is right now. There's SIX movies, plus novels, comics, video games, and animated TV shows. Do you remember when this line first started and it was prequel Jedi after prequel Jedi after prequel Jedi. The fans of this line are DYING for OT characters and Count Dooku. . . that's it.

Your point is just not making sense to me at all. You're saying Sideshow is making Numa and Clones for the 8 year olds now, hoping that they'll want them in 20 years?? They're making toys for kids who don't want them assuming they'll want them in the future. . . instead of Tarkin or Dooku?? Characters that actually matter in the Star Wars Saga.

No..you misunderstood. I said they should not become narrow minded in terms of characters. Yoda doesnt matter? Vader doesnt matter? The Emperor doesnt matter? 3 Lukes dont matter? If all they did was OT and released them all this year, then what? Close the doors? Does that make good business to put all the products out right away? Like I said in the post, people like SW for different reasons: clones, droids, aliens, heroes...it's not your place or mine to tell Sideshow what to make. I sure as hell don't want them to release all the OT characters in the next 3 months...my wife and I make a good living but there is no way in h*ll I could buy 20+ 1/6 figures in 3 months time.

i really have no opinion either way on this set. but i think it's funny that people always cry for more OT stuff and everytime they release an OT figure it never sells. look at the emperor. both versions are still for sale. i bet when greedo, hammerhead, and even yoda start shipping they will all be back in stock too.


as for price, there is no way this set will be under $250. these are deluxe clones. both style helmets and a unique head sculpt. so like cody and rex they will be $125 each which is $250 plus the girl will probably run another $50. so my prediction is $300 for the entire set.

i really have no opinion either way on this set. but i think it's funny that people always cry for more OT stuff and everytime they release an OT figure it never sells. look at the emperor. both versions are still for sale. i bet when greedo, hammerhead, and even yoda start shipping they will all be back in stock too.


as for price, there is no way this set will be under $250. these are deluxe clones. both style helmets and a unique head sculpt. so like cody and rex they will be $125 each which is $250 plus the girl will probably run another $50. so my prediction is $300 for the entire set.

But the important thing is that they're crying. As long as the SW section is crying I know everything is OK!:yess:

I can accept that this is being made given the Emperor, Greedo, Hammerhead, Yoda, Cody and IG-88. If we get 6 good figures for each cartoon release, we now have 6 good figures to look forward to next.

The Clone Wars series is aimed at children, and most children do not collect Sideshow's 1:6 scale figures. This will most definitely be sitting in their warehouse for a while.

Tru dat! I have yet to hear anyone say that it is their inner grandparent that keeps them buying toys well into adulthood.

That happens with every figure though. I'm sure Rex will be in stock after he's "sold out".

The Emperor just came out 3 weeks ago. And he's about $10 more expensive than he should be.

Let's make sure to remind everyone how popular the Clone Wars is by reminding folks that Animated Anakin has been in stock for 7 months.

I like the fact they have made a small body for possibly future jawa's etc, but i have no interest in these actual figs.

There are only a few figs that sell liek gang busters, its whether the ex goes on GC that determines failure IMO

The emeperor would have sold out had it come with force lightning hands!

But these are at least different characters..the babysitter was a joke. Look at all the amazing things that they've announced this year..greedo, hammerhead, gammy, yoda and his freaking house, ig-88...yes there are some clones that are similar, but they clones. :) Some fans who love Star Wars love troopers...these 2 are obviously for them. Some fans love aliens..hammerhead and greedo are for them. Some collectors just want the iconic pieces, stormtroopers, vader and the emperor are for them. The clones are also based on real characters...well kinda real. :) The pink, purple, green, rose, yellow, polkadot, and tie dyed babysitter is completely different...that was obviously milking the cow beyond belief. I give Sideshow props for reaching out in the line. And it's not like anyone got killed because they announced these figures.

I understand that all Clones are variations of one another, but what you're failing to see is that these are just variations of a variation we already received. Pop on those Phase 2 buckets and these are just more 212 knockoffs which is essentially no different than the babysitters. Instead of these we could've gotten any number of other Battalion clones, Phase 1 CO's, etc. Instead? A 2nd and 3rd variant of a figure we already have. Sure they come with new headsculpts, but again, essentially, they're just 212 variants of the Utapau we received already.

I actually really like this set and would like to get it. The problem I forsee is it is too much at once. I will have to go flexpay if I decide to spend that much.

:lecture:lecture:lecture

I can accept these variations of a variation when it's the Hasbro 3 3/4" line, where the price is considerably lower. But when SS is charging upwards of $110.00 for these figures individually, I just go like this... :dunno:cuckoo::slap

"$300 bucks as a possible price point for this set???" :monkey4:monkey4:monkey4

A lot of people/collectors/fans are also losing sight of the big picture. The prices of these "dolls" (yeah, I said it) are moving quickly into the ridiculous realm and very few are even batting an eye. This is not just with SS but with other "high-end" 1/6 figure manufacturers.

There is NO WAY that "Emperor Palpatine" can cost almost as much to manufacture than the two-pack "Sidious/Palpatine set, in only "2 years"!

Heck, I'm still shaking my head at the $75 (plus shipping) price of "Yoda"... :lol

True..but they are still clones from the serious. These guys might have been in production and planning for a good year or so. I think we're kinda on the same page here...maybe not the same paragraph but still the same page.

And I think these will go for $195.

I'll alter my prediction slightly. If they come with the phase 2 helmets. $249.99.

If not and just phase 1, $249.99.
