Sideshows Next Star Wars PF Confirmed!


In the latest issue of Tomart's it stats the following.....

"Sideshow Collectibles next PF SW figure is Darth Maul. This 1:4 scale figure is making its debut at Toy Fair and AFD is giving readers a first look. Also look for the chess set that Chewbacca and R2D2 from A New Hope."

Here are a couple of pics for our scrutinizing...

Not 100% feeling this, but then again of all the PFs SS have released so far I feel Star Wars has been their weakest lot, just thinking back to the (imo) weak likeness on Luke, static pose on Leia, I never expected to get this one, but considerring Darth Maul is one of those characters in Star Wars who really has that WOW factor I'm a little dissapointed I didn't even have a slight tingle of 'oooh I really do want it!'. Then again these aren't exactly giving us the most comprehensive view, maybe when SS release their own promo shots I'll be singing a different tune.

Re: Sideshows Next Star Wars PF Confirmed!


Wow, first PT PF since the General. I really wish it was a character I cared about, like Palpatine. Maul is cool and all, but not $200+ cool. Since PF's are one of the few things I really dig of SS's I wish they'd hit me with Emperor, or a Stormtrooper or some more heros! ROTS Obi Wan or Chewie!

Re: Sideshows Next Star Wars PF Confirmed!


I'm not really feeling this one yet either (at least from that pic). Time, and better pics will tell.

If done right, Maul would be one of the few PF's I would buy, but I'm not really sure about that pose...

The look, the pose, the feel of this piece is just off. With all that it will no doubt be a nice piece though.

Re: Sideshows Next Star Wars PF Confirmed!


I actually quite like it, although I don't really collect the PF's so I wouldn't buy it in any case, Maul or no Maul.

Still I think it's a nice piece and I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures of it at the upcoming toyfair event.

I'm surprised by the choice though because I thought they wanted to keep character releases from the PF's and 12" range as far apart as possible.

The Maul 12" has only just been released so it seems a little odd that we're getting a PF from Sideshow so soon to follow it.

Thanks for the info Jonathan.

I haven't bought any PF and wondered if this might be the [sign in to see URL]'s not!
I hope they improve before producion, but that face isn't even as good as their 1/6.
I demand a 1/4 scale Stormtrooper, the finest Stormtrooper available to humanity, and I want it here and I want it NOW! emoticon
