PERS is a Hot Toys thing so, this being a Sideshow product, it wouldn't feature PERS. The question was whether or not it would have separate eyes though, which Sideshow did experiment with on a few figures with limited success. These didn't move like PERS do, but were separate pieces inserted into the head sculpt. I have the Sideshow Hoth Han Solo and I think they look pretty good there, though others don't agree, but I would rather they not take a chance on Indy to be honest. Whatever they are doing on the prototype is fine with me. You are right though, a Sideshow rep did confirm on the SS Freaks board that this figure would not utilize the separate eye system and it seems they have pretty much abandoned the concept all together.
For what it's worth, here is a shot of the Sideshow Hoth Han hatless sculpt on my custom Bespin Han:
Should have my ToD Indy this weekend...can't wait!
I got mine last week, but haven't had the time for any pictures yet. I was a little disappointed in the box, compared to the Raiders Hot Toys box. But the box doesn't really matter much, since the figure will be on display.
Ok, so I finally got my ToD Indy yesterday. Gotta say this is, hands down, some of Sideshow's best work as far as 1/6 scale. It is just as good as any Hot Toys figure that I own and, in some aspects, superior to Hot Toys Indy figure. He's not perfect, but damn near IMO.
The weather didn't want to cooperate with me today. It's overcast/rainy outside, so I couldn't get any good, natural light but here are a few quick shots of mine. Pretty much fresh out of the box, with only some minor futzing:
I'll try to take some better shots tomorrow and highlight all his goodies.
Weather still isn't cooperating here in TX, but here are some shots in better lighting. I did treat his shirt with a little Downey Wrinkle Releaser to get his collar to lay down, other than that no mods...
