That is a very nice....both would look good in my collection.

Might be tough for me to get though.

Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

There is something about Boba Fett that is so much cooler than Jango Fett. Not sure what it is.

Anyway, Jango looks awsome and I think that head sculpt is great.

I agree.
Jango is too polished like the films are in General.
No Grit like Boba and the older films.

I do understand the meaning behind why though.
A more "civilized" time and all.
Not sure I buy it entirely though, I think they look that way because of the CGI, maybe Jango's outfit just naturally followed.

Wow, that was some crazy babble right there...

These are both amazing pieces it's getting harder to resist these RAH as they seem to get better with each release. If I get one then I need to get them all then the wallet will never forgive me not that it does anyway  ;D.

These look great.  Hopefully, Sideshow will make their versions in the near future and they won't cost as much.

I doubt Sideshow would distribute the Medicom versions and make their own at the same time.
Besides, I think the Medicom versions would end up being better and worth the price.
You would see a hike in the price of a normal Sideshow figure like a Stormtrooper, Boba etc because of the armour, might not be as much as the Medicom version, but the product won''t be as good.

Just looking at the Sideshow Premium Fett will give you a hint.
Its nice, but it can't touch the RAH.
That's the other thing, being that SS made a Premium edition of Fett (ROTJ), I doubt they will make a 12 inch version, but again I might be wrong, I don't follow them that closely to know what charactes might get more than one scale.
If they do it would be similar to Premium one and not look as good as Medicom's
IMHO

Sideshow has already said that they will be doing the armored characters. Like you said it won't be at the same time, but it is going to happen eventually.

That will be nice for people who care about having everything in scale, for me it does not matter because I won't buy the Sideshow stuff, I don't think they will be able to touch what Medicom has done so far.
Although I do look forward to seeing what they do, they could make a cool Sandtrooper and have me in a second.
I hope Medicom makes a Snowtrooper at some point.

Don't get me wrong about Sideshow, I love some of the things I've seen from them as far as the 12 inch line.
The Maul is amazing.
I do think the Luke Jedi looks a bit like Corky though.

I just can't see the Fetts being anywhere near the RAH, but for some people what Sideshow offers will be just fine because of scale and price, and I'm sure they will look good.
