• Sideshow Collectibles Announces New Star Wars Mythos Line

      Tom Gilliard, Creative Director at Sideshow Collectibles discusses their new Star Wars Mythos line.



      “The Star Wars Universe is limitless with possibilities, its mythology ever-expanding. Our art team wanted to contribute to that expansion by telling new stories about some of the most compelling Star Wars characters. With the encouragement of Lucasfilm, we created the Mythos line of statues.

      This line of collectibles will be populated by characters from new and existing story lines. We will bring history, unique details and personal choices to each in order to elaborate on who they are. Through the design and sculpt process our goal is to delve deeper into these established characters and offer our own interpretations of what they have done outside of the Star Wars canon.

      Our art team is taking the themes and core concepts common to the Star Wars mythology, such as love, honor, hope, despair and adventure, and accentuating those themes to achieve a collection of figures unlike any we’ve previously offered. Our vision is to portray moments in the imagined lifetimes of these characters and reveal them in a new way, in a new light. We hope to capture the imagination of Star Wars fans all over the world, and share with them our own adventures in that galaxy far, far away.”

        Interesting idea, is this going to be sized or priced as a contender for Premium Format? If it's a smaller format and less expensive, I could see it working, but I'm very particular about what I get partly due to price and partly just due to having a lot of stuff already. It's interesting though that it's not mixed-media, soemthing that sort of defines Sideshow for me, yet they have done good work with polystone statues before. So I'll keep an eye on it, but I'm not all-in yet.

      The game is expensive, but the Fan Fair is only $20 a day and you get to stand in line for a picture with the Stanley Cup. I'm tempted...
