Sideshow 12" Plo Koon
« on: August 24, 2006, 10:30 AM »
From Sideshow's blurb about Snowbunny Padme's Head:

Stay tuned to the Production Blog for more news and updates on Ilum Padme, and get ready for the next 12-inch Star Wars announcement. Rumor has it that there may be a new Jedi on the horizon…


And the speculation starts... NOW!

Let me guess, another Jedi with a robe and a head swap - just like the rest of the ones we have!

 ::)

Seriously, I don't think we'll ever see the "armored" characters we want simply because Medicom has already/will be doing them.

I see it like this, since Sideshow has the rights to distribute Medicom product in the States, why would they tool a new Vader, Stormie, Clonetrooper, Fett etc. when they can sell us the existing Medicom versions for $150-$200 with no investment?

Hmmmm what could the new Jedi be?  We have Luke ROTJ, Kit Fisto ROTS, Mace, Kenobi ROTS, and Anakin ROTS so far.  I am guessing it will be one of the "background" Jedi Knights from the council or even an EU Jedi like Quinlan Vos. I would be happy with any of the following Aayla Secura, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Plo Koon, Saese Tiin, or Eeth Koth. 

If it's a main Jedi I hope it's Yoda or ANH Kenobi.

I am thinking Saesee Tiin or Ki-Adi Mundi. They could give a curve ball and do an EU figure before Padme and do Qui-Lon Vos.

Mara Jade would be cool.

About clones & stormies, SS said at CC they're working on a way to make these guys, but try to make them both basically the same sculpt with minor changes. Sounds sort of Hasbroy.

Maybe crashed astro droid head? Or maybe clone head? We'll just have to wait. :)

Very nice... at least it's an alien and not another human!

Yeah, but a "bucket head" character would of been much cooler! It would probally be the fastest seller too.

I don't know.  I think the same people that want Kit would equally go for Plo, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Saesse Tiin and Aayla Secura.  They all seem to be about the same popularity-wise.  I know I am anyway.  Although I will skip on Plo simply because of financial reasons.  But it's a decent pick.  Now those that were considering paying out the rear for Hasbro's version may feel better putting their cash to SS's version.

You're exactly right.  I'd really love to have a 12" prequel Jedi collection, and Plo Koon is one step closer to doing that.  I've always thought Plo Koon and Sasee Tiin were the best looking alien Jedi, so I'm looking forward to this.  8)

Nice, although I was hoping for an OT Jedi (Old Ben or Yoda).  I have no clue what the exclusive will be.  Plo didn't do a whole hell of a lot in the movies other than sit in a chair with his fingers crossed or get blown up in his outdated Jedi starfighter.  It'll probably be along the lines of Leia's, something not seen in the movies.

Well maybe they will go all out and give us a Jedi Council chair. That would be cool.
