    Hot Toys To Tackle 12" Star Wars

    Read this interesting rumor over at rebelscum.com. Please let it be true...I've prayed for this for years. If any of you own Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece 12" pieces(like Predator or Dark Knight)...you'll understand my excitement. Most of the time...I deviate my collecting funds from Hasbro's endless parade of repaints & redecos over to this outstanding 12" line. Being that Hot Toys has collaborated with Sideshow anyway on their armored troopers....me holding breath!

    Are they taking it over and restarting what Sideshow did, or are they continuing the line? If its the former, I'm done. I don't care how good the new molds are, I'm not starting my third 12" figure line by buying base figures over again.
    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-

    ....yeah inquiring minds want to know. I guess it would depend on the figure. You have to admit Hot Toys is good stuff. I can see prices increasing even more than they already have though. I've been priced out on quite a few newer Sideshow figures lately.

    I don't know that I buy it, the Japanese market already has a 12" primary license and it's Medicom, which has been doing their thing for quite a while. Here's their newest: http://www.blister.jp/item17537.html

    That said, Hot Toys clearly can do better humanoid likenesses and skin colors better than either Sideshow or Medicom, and with Sideshow having gone stupid with pricing, Hot Toys' non-armored figures aren't especially expensive anymore. They'd definitely do far better than Medicom or Sideshow, but I cannot see getting into yet another 12" SW line either.

    I think that Hot Toys products are top notch. I have the Captain Dallas and Exec Officer Kane from the ALIEN series and they are both excellent. I've also been looking at getting the new Terminator which looks exactly like Arnie did in T1. If they were to take over the 12" SW line, I wouldn't have any complaints other than the price(probably $150 plus).

    Sideshow has made some good SW products, especially troopers. But, as JT pointed out, the skin really looks artificial whereas Hot Toys seems much more lifelike. I also don't care much for the eyes. It seems like they are all smoking weed or something.

    Ditto that. I have Dark Knight Batman & Joker, Alien, Dallas & Kane, Scar Predator, Ripley w/Power Loader, Hicks, T2 T-1000, T-800 & Terminator Salvation...they are highlights of my 12" collection.

    I don`t like this "premium" 12" figures;they`re so expensive that you don`t feel like playing with them.The Toys are to play.Otherwise we have statues.

    ...or IDOLS! and ye shall make none representing anything in heaven or on the Earth.

    Good thing they're from a galaxy far far away.

    I like the Hasbro 2010 Gamorrean Better than the 12" sideshow`s.

    I bought 2 of those at KB's on sale and it was good enough for me.

    I am partial to the Sideshow Prequel Alien Jedi, but I don't think there's many left to do that would be marketable for them. I'd probably buy them though if they made them.
