    Why do people keep saying this? So they shelved the LOTR line. Does that mean the world is ending? For Middle Earth, likely. For the rest of us, no. Yes, it sucks, but that doesn't mean they're shelving the 1:6 scale market. Just that line, and after all the flack they got for the Hobbits, I don't blame them. They'd shut out a core part of their business. People don't really want to buy Hasbro but can't afford Medicom or HotToys let alone PFs and 1:1 busts. In keeping the 1:6 lines, they capture that middle ground. Besides, nobody develops a new body, let alone 3 new bodies, for their 1:6 scale lines if they're planning on jumping ship. Additionally, new lines are planned as well, this being one and G.I. Joe being another. Star Wars, despite the rather deconstructive criticism continues to see more releases than are arguably healthy for our wallets yet continues to sell well as does their The Dead too. I think cutting back to focus on key properties is a wise decision as it allows more time and detail to be focused on QC. The Hobbits with their loose joints had a remarkable attention to detail. Obi Wan despite his complaints was just incredible and Gandolf pretty much rocked. I can't wait to see Indy. If these guys, and the pics here are any clue about how good he's going to look in person, I think Sideshow, with their lower prices and increasing quality, just may pull ahead in the 1:6 scale market.

    Hey MaulFan, see the shoes on the ToyWorld forums? Have a closer gander at the shoes then compare them to the opened box photo.

    I read the post on the toy-world forum
    The person actually changed the body to a Hot Toys body. As for the shoes he mentioned that the SS shoes dont really fit on the HT body, therefore he changed it.

    Seems like he doesnt really like the SS body, I have asked him to elaborate more on the the good & bad of the SS body and whether its because of loose joints that he decided to change it.
