Certainly looks like a 1/6 model for figures, like the Dewback, i maybe wrong though.

I hope this means a Hoth Luke or Han from Hot Toys.

I thought speculation was that HT would only re-release figures Sideshow has already tackled? In which case, Hoth figures would be off the table. Would no one take issue with HT doing all human characters from now on while Sideshow does monsters/robots/aliens exclusively?

As for the Prode Droid, I hope for articulation to the many arms and legs.

I am sure we did be getting both Han's and Luke's TaunTaun.

Accepting the fact that these will be in static pose. I simply jope it will not be the case of 2 identical TaunTauns with one having a broken horn.

I am disappointed, but not surprised after the Dewback. What a pity.


Also...I firmly believe that there will be no Hoth Han or any other Hoth figure until well after Sideshow releases one.

I think some people are expecting more from this Hot Toys collaboration than there actually is to it.

Don't you hate trends?

And this would 100% definitely HAVE to have fur. I know Dewy has a sculpted mane, but with Taun, fur's what will really separate SSC's from the Hasbro one... oh, and no articulation.

I would be absolutely astonished if they used "real" fur. I don't have an issue with sculpted fur, especially if it's not even going to be poseable. I actually think sculpted fur will look better, especially since it'd be so short (not like Chewbacca).

What chewy? Maybe in 5 years

What chewy? Maybe in 5 years

Chewy is on the confirmed planned list (compiled last year on the boards from various sources), which last year included Battle droids and Super Battle droid. I can't see how he can be on that list and still be five years away.

That being said, aside from Threepio, Chewy is the single most difficult figure to nail (I can't even think of a single custom that has looked great) so maybe you're right.

03-22-2013, 06:57 AM
My guess what you are looking at is the saddle of a Tauntaun. The question is whether it's 1/6th or 1/4th. My guess is 1/6th.

Best pic I can find of a Tauntaun saddle:

That is actually a really important issue for me too.

I mean the actual prop coat was a very dark brown. But its on-screen appearance due to lighting effects and/or the camera filter was blue and the Kenner figure forever reinforced that perception.

A brown coat should be the exclusive and the blue one standard, by which I mean the exclusive would include both colours.

Kenner/Hasbro have used both brown and blue. Blue on the vintage and some of the newer releases, brown on everything from the 90's and early 2000's, including their 12" Collector's line.

BTW, Hasbro's 12" line Taun Taun is too big, and it looks even bigger when placed next to their Dewback. ;)

Hasbro has done several 3 3/4" blue coat Hans in the last 2-3 years.

Yup, that's what I said.



And the Hasbro 12" Taun, with tweaks, could be made to be the right size. It's not hugely off.

I have the Hasbro Taun Taun and I love it, but there no amount of modifying you can do that is going to shrink the head down to the correct size. ;)

Mine actually fell off the shelf the other day and one of the leg joints broke. Even after repair I can't get the leg back on, so I'm going to have to modify the connection and permanently glue the legs in place. Do you have any links to mods others have done to theirs?

INCOM
03-23-2013, 09:08 AM
Not seeing the SSC tease pic one there?

You're right. I went back and looked at the teaser pic again and it's different. It looks more like the one on the stop motion puppet.

I wonder if their going to replicate the stop motion puppet or the full size prop? The head on the prop is larger.

galactiboy
03-23-2013, 05:01 PM
I'd assume full size as that's the look more associated with them.

Is this going to be a vinyl figure with no articulation like the Dewback??? Would be nice if they gave it a ab crunch under a fur body suit... Atleast that would give us an option to own more than one with different display options. I will own one no matter what, but a pose variation would make me need 2.

Making a completely new head is a little different than just "modifying" ;) And you'd have to take apart the original by removing the horns to try the recast. Not sure it's worth it, that mold is going to be a PITA to clean up.

I am hoping we will finally see some finished prototype pice at next month's Comic-Con. The saddle pics have been out for a while so I am assuming this has been in the works for some time and that they are holding off the reveal for the show.

I am also hoping to get back to my 1/4 tauntaun scult and 1:1 taunaun bust next month over my vacation.

I was going to use faux fur for both the 1/4 figure and 1:1 bust but my brother wants to sculpt the fur on the bust (he does amazing fur scult). I wil probably still faux fur the 1/4 figure.

Nice sculpt, psimon.

The 1:1 bust has been on hold since my brother will probably be finishing it. I dont know when or even how to get this to him (I live in Ontario Canada an he is in Arizona USA). He is also backlogged with other projects.

The 1/4 scale sculpt was updated just this past January. Unfortunatly other priorities has also kept me from workin on this. I have a couple weeks vacation coming up in July so my goal is to finish the sculpt and maybe soon after, get him casted.

I wonder too. Articulation would be more meaningful on a tauntaun, so it might be better to make it vinyl.

However, I'm not sure how much more meaningful. A head that turns could be nice.

Glad for Taun Taun, not looking forward to the storm comparing SSC Luke to HT.


I hear what you're saying. The Taun Taun will be awesome but there's no denying that the pressure is on Sideshow with this upcoming Luke.

I wonder too. Articulation would be more meaningful on a tauntaun, so it might be better to make it vinyl.

However, I'm not sure how much more meaningful. A head that turns could be nice.

I am most supportive of articulation.

Two things -


1) I have no faith in that list.

2) If, by some miracle, we do get a Taun Taun this year, if it has no articulation, mine will sit in Sideshow's warehouse right next to my Dewback until someone else buys it.

I was of the same opinion until I started looking at the Dewback as simply another accessory, not a figure. It's great to look at, but it's a really big environment accessory for the Sandtroopers in my collection. It's still on my wanted list, but the shelf space is already reserved for it.

That said, a movable head on a Taun Taun would be great allowing it more display choices - facing either left or right for starters to make sure you don't have to display it facing a wall because it's the last shelf you have left. ;)

06-21-2013, 12:01 PM
if ssc would have been able to engineer that dewback to be able to move his head left and right i would have bought two.

The early PF's had some movement in the arms... not sure if it was articulated limbs, or a wire armature. But they abandoned that pretty early on.

Only other ones I can think of are C-3PO and I think Robocop, guessing since they were droids it was more of an acceptable option.

yea, seems like some subjects would be easier to hide the joints. a "living" subject like the dewback's neck would probably be tons harder to make look right. and drive the cost up as well.

Pixelpiper

That's why they only used real live Taun Tauns when making ESB. ;) The only problem was the smell. It would be interesting to see a 1:6 scale version with real fur instead of a sculpted representation - I just hope Sideshow's doesn't have any odor glands.

For me, the Taun Taun is much more iconic than the Dewback, but I have no idea where I'd display it, as I'm trying to keep everything to my office. I'm not sure Star Wars items would really fit into the decor elsewhere in the house. ;) So much of my display space has already been altered to make room for specific products, I'm afraid I've run out of expansion or rework options. It took some ingenuity to make enough space for the Dewback to "just" fit.

Dewy's size is why I didn't get him, so the TaunTaun is a no brainer for me along with Hoth luke of course. Only decision is whether I need to get a HT bespin sculpt for him if SS doesn't come through. :dunno

If it had faux fur instead of it being sculpted where it could cover the joints, that might work better.

Sorry about the missing photos. When they discontinued Mac.com's web hosting, a lot of my photos went dead. I took a few new ones just now, and here are some in-progress shots as well. I still want to put it on a base with some model snow.

It looks like it's puckerring for a kiss. And what is wrong with those eyes? I was really looking forward to this figure. What a disappointment.

That's an alternate head. There's a cut line in the neck. You can see the regular version in the background.

I suppose we'll find out next week if there are two different versions or two heads in one box.

It's seems likely that they'll make Han and Luke versions and just change out the heads (and maybe the front legs). I'd be surprised if they just threw in an extra head when they could sell two different versions instead, but we'll see.

I'm betting that it's just the one tauntaun with 2 heads included. Cheaper route for SS since they don't have to stock 2 different items. :dunno

Great work on that TaunTaun, icruise. Looks great.

In regards to Sideshows, I'm thinking it will come with both heads or the alternate is the exclusive. Otherwise I don't see the point of making them removable in the first place. Would be better to have two different, seamless sculpts, IMO, if the idea was to push people to buy both.

Edit: And VASith has a good point, as well. These guys are going to be big. Extra head included standard just makes sense to me, but we'll see.

This is the company that released two nearly identical Gamorrean Guards, though. I could see them potentially releasing two of these, although including both heads would definitely be preferable.

With Sideshow's track record I could see it going either way... I'm leaning more towards it being one figure with 2 heads given they are showing both in the teaser image. But, it could just as likely be 2 separate releases.

If it is I'll buy a Luke version, just a bit more iconic given it's the first time you see Luke on Hoth and the first TaunTaun you see. And that way I can leave Han to be taking out the Probe Droid :lecture

That would look awesome. Can't see them releasing two versions thou. It's going to be a big and expensive item.
I'm won't be buying as hoth stuff isn't for me but well done Ssc for a) an ot item and b) a cool looking beast. :)

I think Style A ESB is my favorite ever. The way Vader just looms in the BG over Luke, Han and Leia. It really captures the essence of the film, which also happens to be my favorite movie of all time! :lecture

Agreed 1000000%!

This was the poster I wanted to take to CVI to have signed.
Ended up with some group combos instead.

Someday, I would love to get an original signed by the major cast.

Bloody Luke head would be choice... really hope we get a Wampa and Rancor before Sideshow reconsiders huge Star Wars creatures :rock :rock :rock

And as I think on it, another reason to buy the TaunTaun is to support it in hopes one day the release a Rancor.

I forgot they already did a nice wampa and tauntaun (which I own doh!) but it was about 1/7 scale.

it will be interesting to compare price points.

I still think you'll be sleeping on the couch for at least a week when that box hits the front step.

I thought the line in the neck was just a bad seam like the shoulder of the Gamorean Executioner. Thanks for pointing that out.
