I passed on the Yoda hoping Sideshow will do there own version, so i will probably pass on wicket as well. I am hoping since Sideshow is doing Frodo and Sam in the LOTR line they have a small body base to use for Star Wars characters.

I'll pass on the furry one, and I am kind of hoping to not get hooked by C-3PO. Keeping it to bad guys keeps the collection size/display manageable.

Ok so i am taking it back. I ordered the Wicket. Mostly becuase i think it actually looks pretty good after taking a second look at it and becuase it is in 1/6th scale. With that said, does anyone have the Yoda that they could post a pic of, possibly next to a Sideshow 12 inch figure. Thanks!

I feel bad for me too...  ;) I think the Deformed style figure on a 12" scale would be awesome, but I'm not sure it would be $225 awesome.  Plus shipping.  Ouch.

Sideshow has confirmed that they will be able to offer this piece in the USA. 

Kind of nice that they can bring these in.  No word yet on what they will be charging though...

Thanks for the great news Jeff!  I'll keep my fingers crossed that the price will be reasonable.

I may have to contact a couple Canadian e-tailers to see if they'll be bringing it in.

Sideshow is now taking pre-orders at $199.99 plus shipping. 

It's cheaper than Blister.jp by about $25, plus the shipping should be cheaper than having it flown from Japan...

17" tall!  Oh temptation!  If they had given him the OT paint apps for some more variety from the original (besides size), it would have been a home run. 



Hmmm... Shipping would be about $30 for me in Canuckia.  But then there's FedEx's brokerage fees and Canadian customs as well.  I sure wish Sideshow used USPS...

Yeah, good ol FedEx. Nothing but customs unless they do the backdoor delivery, take the paper work & send you the bill a couple weeks down the road. Receives bill, phones FedEx... what parcel? You got a sig on that!  :-X  ;)

Maybe best to have someone in the US get it for ya Jesse & reroute it.  :-\
