If you look at screen caps too, the 10" height on both the Sideshow one and the custom one seems about right (i.e. when Luke and vader are standing near it.) These are customized Hasbro figs in the pics below (this Vader is 13",) so some parts are slightly overscale too.



    I may remember the SSC Throne measurements all wrong. Mine had to go back in the box a while ago, so I don't see it everyday anymore. In my mind it's smaller than 10", but I may be totally wrong. I've been tinkering with various custom thrones over time as well, so maybe I have mixed it all up. Either way I'm certain that the throne in the movie is quite a bit larger than the SSC. More roomy in the sides and taller, and it doesn't have the triangle shape. I suppose it's so easy to look at the Sideshow and other licensed versions for details to use as a starting point and all of a sudden you have copied the mistakes as well.

    Hot Toys emperor is years away so no rush..

    I guess most of us have the SSC as a placeholder at least.

    I think the Sideshow and custom thrones are the right height but they're a bit small in the top section - as you say, too triangular and the "roof" part is too small.

    HT doesn't really do stuff like the throne - they like either big centerpieces (Tron cycle, DeLorean, batmobile etc.) or underscale pack-ins (interrogation droid, Yoda lamps etc.) And the Emperor is seen just as much if not more away from his throne than sitting in it - unlike Jabba who's always on his throne.

    I'm having a hard time picturing this...I thought you were doing mainly the interior part of the window.

    It's a scaled down piece/test for the outer edge of that part.

    Besides, no doubt there will be a lot of compromise with a Detolf version because the real one was massive. I'm sure Joost is experimenting with what will and won't look good and what is realistically possible.

    Full faith this will turn out great.

    This one is gonna be a headache - I could see when you first suggested it. Scaled vs just a section of it behind the throne.

    Great piece of rolling there, Joost. Makes me wanna just buy that part for no reason at all

    I'm sure it will be great I was just not understanding what I was looking at.
