    New SideShow 12" That They Absolutely Have To Make

    I went through the 12" figures I own (mostly Hasbro) where I often add SideShow for characters that Hasbro never made before (or where the Hasbro figure is just too awful to display).

    I came up with my list of essentials:

    Leia red Bespin gown
    Chewbacca
    Han Solo Yavin Ceremony

    Emperor's Royal Guard
    Hoth Rebel Soldier (preferably no facial hair, then a later variation)
    New Rebel Fleet Trooper (different headsculpt)
    Commander Bly
    Star Corps Clone Trooper (yellow - Fallucia)
    Commander Bacara
    Galactic Marine
    Kashyyyk Clone Trooper
    Commander Gree
    Commander Cody
    Red Battle Droid
    Destroyer Droid

    Scum and Villany:

    Wooof
    Weequay
    Nikto
    Nute Gunray

    Order of the Jedi

    Luminar Undulli
    Pablo Jill
    Agen Kolar

    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.

    JT,you're such a kidder!

    Seriously though...
    We've already seem that Sideshow isn't necessarily movtivated to make logical choices in what they choose to produce for the various lines (see the uncompleted Fellowship and the bumpy selection so far for the IJ line) and who knows WHAT forces are behind how the choices are made for the SW line.

    They are proving this year that they are willing to go outside the basic base body shape with the forthcoming Gamorrean Guard and the Hammerhead that were sneak previewed in production blogs so...at least it's safe to assume SOME variety will be present in the line.

    But I definatley don't think they will "complete" any series of characters in 1:6 scale (ie: the Jedi Council or all of the Cantina patrons).

    I'd just like to see a variety along with some good representations of the core characters.

    For example, Padme is only represented by one release of an EU version of her.

    I hope that Sideshow will not only tackle some unique body types in the future (I'd love to see a Kaminoan or a Gungun) but also the intricate costumes featured throughout the saga too, like Nute Gunray or any of the Jabba's Palace denizens.

    Tycho's list is thorough (as always), but I don't think it's gonna happen...

    A Jawa. Maybe with a Mandalorean helmet and lightsaber for the $260 "exclusive" version.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Here are the five I want next.
    R2-D2
    C-3PO
    Boba Fett
    Chewbacca
    Yoda

    Instead, it looks like we are getting a Hammerhead. Yea

    I would love to see them get there hands on the Scout Trooper with Speeder Bike. But I don't want to see the price.

    As much as I would like to see the EU represented, there is no way Sideshow should do them. It's a death sentence for a line that already has collectors up in arms over the price.
    Nowhere in your incoherent ramblings did you come anywhere close to the answer. Thanks to you, everyone in this room is now stupider having heard you. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul. -Billy Madison-

    So that would be 2T?

    I for one am thrilled that we're getting Hammerhead (Momaw Nadon). Has anyone seen pictures yet? This is the first non-humanoid body that SideShow has ever done.

    It's not that I mind them making Hammerhead, It's just that if you are going to make your first non-humanoid figure, make it someone more reconizeable, especially since it will cost them around $150.

    Or at least try to make one form on of the lines you are pushings, like a Jabba's palace alien. It makes no sense to start a catina alien when you have made all of those Jabba's palace figures.

    Eh, you start people collecting cantina figures that way, too. It's bait.
