    Sideshow to make 3 3/4 Playsets?

    While browsing all the various SW websites, I came across this in the Q&A from Galactic Hunter. Interesting scenario if it does indeed come true

    I seen that as well, i think its great news as long as the price isn't to sticky, i can say i hope they lean toward the OT for right now, and do the prequels after seeing whether or not this formula works out for both side show, and hasbro. Though i do have to admit i seen this coming when hasbro said they couldnt move playsets, and gave sideshow rights to do the 12 inch scale figures. If i have to chose a few playsets, i gotta admit, a Death Star would be great, but i would hate to see the price of such a piece, and would probably skip it if went over 100 bucks... A bespin playset would also be very cool, as would a hoth command center/echo base playset, one of my wish list items that i thought i would never see.

    Depending on how much these cost, I'd be very interested. What scenes do you think they might make? I'd say: the cantina, maybe Ben's place on tatooine, the carbon freezing chamber, possibly the big walkway Luke and Vader fight on, Jabbas throne room, the emperors throne room. Maybe a few others, but they'd have to be iconic sets (falcon cockpit maybe?)

    I'm hoping Sideshow can pull this off. I also hope however that they avoid using high-end materials as they usually do, just stick to ABS and PVC, help keep the costs down and deliver a good product rather than a "masterpiece" like the Attakus stuff which is perfect but totally unaffordable.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.

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

    I am with you guys also. I hope they arent too pricy and limited either. 1000 of each wont cut it for the collectors out there.

    I would love to see a Cantina, Bespin, Hoth, Dagobah, Endor, Tatooine.

    Ah... yeah, I can't believe you didn't mention Jabba's Sailbarge.
    Though technically a vehicle, Zizzle calls the Black Pearl a "playset", so in my book the Sailbarge is a playset. Yeah that's it we'll call it a playset. For now.

    While it sounds cool, how incredibly pathetic is it that one of the two biggest toy companies in the world can't pull off large figures or playsets, and has to contract them out?

    And why the hell won't they subcontract the damned Unleashed line? I want a ****ing Qui-Gon, you dillweeds!
    That's my jacket!

    We'll see how this pans out. Even if they were just non-moving scenery pieces that would be totally awesome. I wouldn't want a retread of too much existing stuff, though (we already have the cantina bar).
    Got a question for Hasbro? Ask it here!
