I heard a rumor from a couple of vendors that Sideshow was going to get the 12 inch license for Star Wars, or that they would at least be producing some 12 inch figures. Given the work they have done of the 18 inch stuff I say this could be a very good thing.
Remember this is all just speculation and rumor at thing point, but here are a few 12 inch figures I would love for them to do:
Darth Vader OT style with cloth capes and 3 piece removable helmet
Stormtrooper with lots of articulation
Bounty Hunters (ESB)
Sideshow has shown what a wonderful job they can do with the 18 inch stuff, I can't wait to see what they can do with the 12 inch line.
