    Default Re: Sideshow Hoth Han Solo (Echo Base)

    I put in the dvd before I ordered to see for myself. Looked blue to me. But hey, if you like brown, more power to you.

    I can just see that Blue Coat right now $49.99 at Toy Anxiety.
    Toy Anxiety will only be able to part out regular Han sets (brown jacket and no clean HS). Demand appears like it is going to be a lot fiercer than I would've thought for a spare brown coat, though. I'll bet the brown coat goes for $30.00, maybe $40.00, tops.

    You mean you refuse to waste any more time other than the time you wasted by telling me how much time you refuse to waste in place of simply posting a link to whatever evidence you claim exists in support of your assertion.

    This is rather like you telling someone else (devilof76?) a few pages back just how much you were ignoring them. It's comical.

    The blue has a nice aesthetic, but the brown has a more natural look to it. I went with brown, wish I could of had both...

    You did not seem to think it was "cluttering" the thread this morning when your reignited the debate with multiple posts attacking the choice of blue.

    And I guess you are none too worried about "cluttering" the thread with at least your third reminder to us all of how you *so* done with this debate. If you are done, then be done with it instead of preening even further by playing faux-moderator.

    Edit: I am not even saying you are wrong that this debate should end right now, but you are one of the last people here in any position to lecture others. You loved debating this until I (using an admittedly underhanded approach) called you out on a unrelated gaffe, then all of a sudden you were better than your last 3-4 days of behaviour. That sort of attitude has kept this debate going, not the colour differences.

    I hope Sideshow is getting some notice from their authorised retailers who may not be happy being cut out of the blue jacket action.

    According to Alex, the blue coat is NOT an exclusive, only the extra head is. In theory they could make a blue coat regular edition or include the blue coat extra without violating the "exclusive". In fact I wonder if they deliberately left open that possibility if sales of the blue coat were better than they expected.

    Well, I ordered the "brown"coat version....this particular "Solo" is a must-have for me...and it looks real good.

    Now when SSC is saying "one per person"....are they meaning of the figure, period, or of each version? (brown/blue) I'm tempted to pick up the blue coat too...if only to replacement my old SSC "Bespin" Han with this new portrait. I like the new sculpt, but like the Hoth Luke...it looks good, but a little "off"...but a huge improvement over that first effort from years back.

    I also like the gallery a lot. Whomever is doing the photography these days is adding some variety with the lighting conditions and it really enhances the figure nicely. Don't care so much for the "Photoshopped" ones with added "atmosphere" but it's cool to see the galleries getting switched up a little with some variety.

    I may PO a Tauntaun later...so far, my upcoming figure POs aren't too insane, but the year is young...but it's great to finally see Hoth getting some good Sideshow treatment...

    I read an article once, (think it was in Star Wars Magazine) that stated that Harrison Ford was originally supposed to shoot either all or most of his "Hoth" scenes on a soundstage, but things changed last minute and he ended up outdoors in the cold instead. Problem was, his wardrobe coat was not made for outdoors. So, he ended up using different coats while shooting. AND, that the coats were in different shades. So, it's possible that he wore a brown & blue coat in ESB. Just something to think about...

    Looks like the blue is the true exclusive limited to sideshow only. The extra head is an exclusive feature to both Luke and Han, but as the little ex description reads on the blue coat page is only available to sideshow.com. Who know though, $ide$how will do whatever they want when it comes down to $$$.
