1:6 Sideshow Temple of Doom firgure

Found out about this at SideshowCollectors.com

Quote:
1:6 TOD Figures (Indy, Mola Ram & Short Round) mentioned by Brant in SDCC Panel Q&A

Someone asked about future figures in the INDY 1:6 line during the Q&A at Sideshow's SDCC panel and Brant specifically mentioned 1:6 TOD Indy, Mola Ram, Short Round, "and something even cooler". (That could've been the Mine Car Environment he previously mentioned in Chat... or it could be something else entirely)

Discuss...

Here's the link to thread. http://www.sideshowcollectors.com/fo...ad.php?t=80442

Information over there is pretty legit, so I would be pumped for this. Still looking for an official word though.

So since they are discussing....shall we?

This is good news as far as variety for our collections.

The 12" toys are awesome, but it's hard to justify the cost of the best of them in this market. Heck, you can still order the Young Indy and Belloq's from Sideshow, which is hard to believe.

I love the 12" stuff, but beyond a few of the cooler figs I'd rather drop that kind of coin on a statue or whatnot. Also, the only 12 inchers that haven't felt flimsy are the medicom stuff. It's ashame too because the Sideshow Raiders Indy is one of my favorites to look at, but it's just weak body construction.

I don't collect any larger scale figures (no room, no money and you can't really "play" with them!) but I think it's great news that SOMEBODY out there is still making Indy collectibles.

The rumour that dropped during SDCC about a sixth scale Sideshow TOD Indy figure has surfaced again.

Totally stoked for this one! Never thought we'd get a ToD Indy! Both Sideshow and Hot Toys seemed to be done with Indy...though Sideshow had mentioned him a few times in their Q&As I had given up hope. Looks great too!

Awesome. It's about time. I was basically done with my 12" Indy buying because I've got more MIB than I do on display, but this might take the place of my Sideshow Indy (I never upgraded to the Hot Toys fig).

Fortune and glory, kids – Sideshow debuts new Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Figure

“If adventure has a name – It must be Indiana Jones!”

Capturing Harrison Ford as the world famous archaeologist, get ready to relive your favorite moments from one of Indy’s most memorable expeditions with Sideshow’s new Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Sixth Scale Figure.

Crafted on a brand new, fully-articulated body, the intrepid professor is prepared to chase fortune and glory in his iconic globetrotter gear, khaki shirt and trousers, and famous fedora.

Ready to tackle the terrors surrounding the mysterious Temple of Doom, Dr. Jones comes armed with his trademark bullwhip, pistol, machete, and an undying thirst for adventure, as the fate of an entire village – and its children – rests in his hands.

Bruised but not beaten, the rugged hero comes with everything he needs to recover the stolen Sankara Stones, put a stop to the sinister Mola Ram, win the girl, and save the day.

Sideshow Exclusive Edition

The Sideshow Exclusive Edition will include additional ‘illuminated’ Sankara Stones...


Sideshow’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Sixth Scale Figure will be a must-have for fans of the saga!

everything looks great but....Hot Toys raised the bar, and apparently set the prices.

That is one of the better Indy sculpts out there, I think. Hopefully the production paint job looks as good.

Still wish the torso was just a bit beefier though. Harrison was bulkier in that film than this figure is.

As always, there's a lot of debate about the quality of the sculpt on Sideshow Freaks.

However, amid the usual sea of negativity the following is posted:

Some more shots:







It's a curiosity that he comes with the Colt Official Police .38 that Willie lost in Shanghai, and a "Left Trigger Hand" to grip it.

A welcome curiosity nonetheless.

Looks amazing to me, better than Hot Toys! May try to pick up a second head to replace my HT Indy's.

I'm sure there are going to be repainted recasts from the likes of Head Play - likely in both 'clean' and 'battle damaged' versions which will make upgrading the DX05 easier

There's also a rumour that Sideshow is using Hot Toys' factories to upgrade their production figures, so that they might for once look something like their prototypes. It would figure considering they've raised their prices to Hot Toys' level.

To back up the theory Rook (on Sideshow Freaks), who photographs figures for Sideshow reported in reference to the upcoming sixth scale Echo Base Han Solo:

I never placed an order for this, but given recent developments, I may just have to.

I just hope they've abandoned the separate eye system that's been wrecking their sculpts lately, such as Nathan Drake's:

Yeah, I have the Hoth Han on order...really hoping the final product comes pretty close to the proto. Those Nathan Drake pics kind of have me worried too. At the prices Sideshow is charging nowadays, they have to really improve or they are going to lose a lot of customers...why pay HT prices for Sideshow when you can just buy HT figures?
