    How Many Sideshow 12" Figures Have You Preordered?

    Sideshow Collectibles' line of 12" Star Wars figures has quickly cast itself into focus, despite the line having yet to ship 1 single piece. Since November of last year, Sideshow has made 4 fantastic-looking 12" figures available for preorder, and with a 5th due at the end of this week the pace of the preorder reveals seems to be picking up. Each figure has been made available in regular format and a Sideshow Exclusive limited edition, making for 8 total figure preorders so far:

    - Luke ROTJ
    - Luke ROTJ SE
    - Anakin ROTS
    - Anakin ROTS SE
    - Obi-Wan ROTS
    - Obi-Wan ROTS SE
    - Kit Fisto
    - Kit Fisto SE


    So, how many of the Sideshow Collectibles 12" Star Wars figures have you preordered to date?

    Managed to get the last 3 exclusives. Missed out on the exclusive Luke, but got one recently by putting myself on the wait list right away. Still have the regular Luke from my initial order too. That's a total of 5 confirmed (6 if I count Aragorn) I have heard that it will be easy to take them out of their packaging without damaging the box for loose display or MIB, so repeats might not be necessary. Wonder how that will work out? If so I might cancel the regular Luke.

    ZERO!

    I will not collect Sideshow product due to their practice of making exclusive alternate versions of nearly every figure.

    The high price point is also a contributing factor. I won't pay $6-7 for a 4" figure any more than I'd pay $20+ for a 12" one.

    I voted for 2, I got the Luke exclusive and the Obi-Wan exclusive, those were the only ones that spoke to me, I figure the others can entice me in person or not end up in my collection, either is fine.

    I didn't think it was germane to say "how many have you NOT preordered?" But since Steve came up with the idea of this poll and he likes to listen to you complainers I added a "none" option for you guys to vote on.

    Not everything is about *you*.

    Ok, am I the only one pumped for this line?
    I am also glad we have a real 12" line on our hands finally. I don't get why most of the people posting in this thread are going on about wanting a "None" option, if they haven't preordered any, why are they bothering with this poll???

    Well, if you saw the blog pics, it's a 2-sided non-sealed clamshell tray, so you slide the tray out and pull the top away from the bottom, it's probably the single most collector-friendly packaging ever, perfect for opening and replacing the figure. Whether it'll work as advertised I dunno but I believe it will. I had been considering getting regular Luke too but with the packaging revealed have decided against it, at least for now.


    Darth Cruel, dang dude, I totally didn't see that one coming. Aren't these like 1 per customer though?
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    After the priority pre-order, they up the maximum on the regular edition to 2. I got the extras and will continue to until I get one that someone will trade for the exclusive edition Luke or enough of the regular edition ones to make back all the extra money I will have to spend to get one on ebay.

    Well I ordered an extra-regular Obi-Wan from Amok Time.

    I also ordered Anakin from them.

    If SS makes a worthy Palpatine, I'll pose him kneeling down over Hasbro's fried-head on Anakin from their E3 12".

    I came to my decision by resizing the screens and comparing Hasbro's 12" Anakin next to SS's, along with Obi-Wan Kenobi from SS. There was no question.

    So I'm now up to 4 SS figures:

    2 Obi-Wan (regular and SSE)
    1 Anakin
    1 Kit Fisto

    And I'll buy Han Bespin SSE on Friday I hope (or regular Han if I'm not fast enough).

    I like that kind of thinking! Polls that only offer positive-options are a bit one-sided. You could craft future polls like this one was so that the results always support a positive result. Dissenting opinions should be tolerated; manufacturers should welcome criticism in order to better improve product or services. By voting "none" I can send Sideshow, Hasbro, etc., that I for one am not happy with their product or business practices.
