Yes, but it seems that by the rate they're going, when they finally get around to making armored figs, the price will be up to $150 by then! Ouch....Mortar Conn said:These are cool but way too much money.
Hope the Sideshow versions happen and are of comparable quality and the likenesses/sculpts are good.
any chance you have photos to share? i would love to see the comparison shots!The price difference has more to do with the cost of materials and the weak dollar. Sideshow's prices have started to go up too. It is the same for most toy companies. Japanese Kaiju vinyl toys have gone up in price quite a bit over the last year. Petroleum is at a premium. Hence we end up shelling out more.
I got my shock trooper in a couple of days ago. I like it. Unfortunately the armor limits the range of motion and articulation. It is a great paint job though. I hadn't even considered getting the Medicom clone's specifically because of the price. This one was just so cool that I couldn't resist.
As far as scale goes, it is much taller than the Boba Fett figure, but doesn't quite reach the full height of the Sideshow figures. Still taller than Luke though and just slightly shorter than Anakin. Considering that the Jango was a short character in the films and the troopers are clones of him, I don't have any issue with them matching up in scale. Certainly Vader is a whole different problem, but these troopers seem to compare nicely.
