SideShow 12" Speculations???
« on: October 25, 2006, 10:58 AM »
As a musician, I've always loved the Modal Nodes and the Max Rebo Band (original not SE) and I remember getting pretty excited about a rumor that Hasblo was going to make a 12" Max Rebo Band set.   Of course, that never came to fruition but how about SideShow doing one?  It'd fit into the whole Jabba's Palace motif they've already got going!   

That'd be sweeeeeeet!

I would like to see a droids line.  I would love to see what Sideshow could do with IG-88.

IG-88 would probally be in the "Scum & Villany" line, while other droids could fitted elsewhere. R2 & 3PO in "Rebellion", R4 & G9 in a "Republic" line, R5-D4,Gonk,etc... in Scum, sinnce they'll probally be packed with Jawas. I'd also like to see the Rebo band, thoughs guys would probally be the last of my 12" Place collection.
 I want to see the two Fetts, imperial/ Republic troopers or Vader soon. My guess is Vader & a Stormie should be out next year for the 30th anniversary.

I am sure that when Sideshow does a Greivous he will be a huge improvement over the Hasbro one. I don't see him being done soon however since he would be entirely a new sculpt, no reuse of the human body. I think it would be nice to get an all new sculpt next in the line but we know Padme will be announced soon so she may very well be next. If the next figure is going to use the standard body I am hoping for a Royal Guard.

This is more of a wish than anything else, but I would definitely like to see Count Dooku added to the Lords Of The Sith line.  But then there's the matter of just how long can that line last?  There really aren't that many Sith in the entire Saga of films, unless we start getting into different versions of Sidious and Vader, etc.

Since the militaries line is what I'm aiming for only, I'm looking forward to a Hoth Rebel Soldier...  Their uniforms are intricately designed so I'd like to see what SS is capable of coming up with.  Hasbro's Hoth figures featured some of the only decent detail that line ever churned out so SS has its work cut out for them I think...

Add to that all the details like all the troops having a sidearm, the bulky modular backpacks, the detail of the hat/hood/helmet and such...  I think it'll be interesting to see.

I'd love to see SS going the route of Dragon with their uber details, like undershirts, underwear, suspenders, "survival" gear, etc...  I'd pay the premium price I think for a soldier where you got EVERYTHING he would've had in the field.  From a cold weather shelter to eating utensils, I'd buy it for sure, even if not seen in the films.

I know it's got to be coming in 07 but Vader.  That's the one I want to see them make next.  I am hoping for a ROTJ version w/ removeable helmet, etc. 

As always my personal favorite Hammerhead.  Please SS!

I see Bossk as a possible choice since BHs are popular, but I don't see any cantina guys (well maybe Greedo) for a while. Momaw would be cool though.
