I'm not a big statue/minibust fan myself... I'm intrigued by Sideshow, a relatively small company, jumping into this though with a Star Wars license, and I'm also curious to see how this:
A) affects Unleashed, as 1/4" statues, to me, would be superior to Unleashed.
B) How this is going to be perceived by other lines that are similar, such as the minibusts from GG... And the die-hard collectors of said lines.
Very curious... Seems like they've stirred the pot.
I was certainly flabergasted because I, at first, thought it was some secret maneuver that Hasbro had dumped 12" rights to others and that Sideshow picked it up. Their 1:6 scale action figures are quite amazing.
