Obi_wan99 alerted me to this news and I wanted to find the source. None other than Sideshow in their Fantacular Q&A today.

</font><blockquote><font class="small">Quote:</font>
QUESTION: “These are not the droids you’re looking for.” Oh but they are! The Life-Size C-3PO and R2-D2 are very impressive indeed. But they are far out of my price range and too large for my house. So I am hoping that Sideshow will be making something equally as impressive with C-3PO and R2-D2 as Maquettes or Premium Format Figures in 1/4 scale. Does Sideshow have plans for these droids in these lines in the future?


ANSWER: Yes, you’re in luck. 1:4 scale C-3PO is currently in development, and planned for release in 2010!

For the Weathered (Regular version) it should be a direct copy of their 1:1 Falcon floor board base

For the Pristine (Exclusive version) it should be the steps of the temple during the medal ceremony on Yavin (Like the Han Ex. PF)


....I'm not giving up the Weathered/Pristine scenario! I just think that would work so well and kill two birds with one pre-order stone!

Rodders

I'm thinking this will be the exclusive:

http://homepage.mac.com/denkinews/images/misc/c-3po_eye_screencap1.jpg

It would fit in with the Leia and Salacious statues pretty well, and still be something that people could live without if necessary.

SirTristram
05-10-2009, 12:51 AM
Yeah, but what would it be? Just his head? He was laying down when Crumb chewed on his eye.

Mighty_Jabba
05-10-2009, 01:41 AM
No, I was thinking a swap-out head. He walked around with his eye out as well (if only for a few seconds).

http://homepage.mac.com/denkinews/images/misc/c-3po_eye_screencap4.jpg

I'm just guessing that they're not going to have the exclusive and regular be totally different (although that's certainly possible). BUt since he doesn't normally carry or use anything there aren't a lot of options. The communicator that he talks to Luke with in ANH seems too minor to be a PF exclusive.

Another possibility would be a broken arm from ANH, after the tusken attack, with a swap out "stump":

Kidding aside, I'd like to see him in a regal pose (to later be displayed with R2). I'm interested to know what kind of finish it will have. I wonder if some kind of electroplating will be used, though not sure how durable that is. I wouldn't like to see a painted metal finish.

I love the idea of a dual base, although I think I would prefer it as a separate purchase rather than the exclusive, unless they release R2 pretty much at the same time as C-3PO.

As for having him rest his hand on R2, were you thinking that they would just use a pose that could work both for that and with 3PO alone?

Yes. Or movable arms...Like some some of their PF's. Biker Scout, etc.

Shadow
05-12-2009, 01:09 AM
Exclusive for C-3PO would be a arm that could reach down to rest on R2's dome. The exclusive for R2 would be a single base that would accommodate both with C-3PO standing next to him with that pose.

This would of course require the R2 to be designed at the same time to get the fit right.

Some people at the Freaks forum are claiming that it's impossible to chrome polystone, so C-3PO would be more of a gold paint finish. I think that's total BS, since the 1:1 C-3PO (as well as other things like the 1/4 Endoskeleton) have been chromed. But it is true that they didn't chrome the 1/6 scale ark for Indiana Jones. C-3PO just wouldn't look right if he wasn't chromed.

I'm not sure, but I don't recall them giving previews of products so early in the development process in this way before, so I don't think you can say what "typically" happens in this case. I don't expect to see 3PO up for preorder this year, in any case.

Plus dont forget, Just because a prototype has been shown doesnt mean its going to be the next to be produced.

Threepio's left arm would need to articulated then; he would look ridiculous displayed stand alone with his arm outstretched as currently shown without R2 being there.

The regular version could be 3PO posed standalone with arms down in front of him and the exclusive could be 3PO posed with outstretched arm to embrace a separate R2 with the appropriate matching base.

Much less than the 1:1 is still a lot of money when speaking of the average collector.
I know the usual people will buy them. People who usually dont buy Pf's will be wanting these too though because of the characters.
Luke and R2 will be my only 2 Pf's. Maybe a Vader down the road.

Wow, these are loking great. Maybe they will sell the R2 first(C5 exclusive or at least preview), so those that want both don't have to display 3-PO with the funny pose without R2.

I agree as well ... somewhat. If you're referring to something that costs as much as the 1:1 droids, I can see getting one without the other. Though PFs are by no means cheap, they are much more reasonable and hence allow one to want (nay, demand!) both droids.
If I were to only get one, I'd get R2 as well. That being said, I'll be getting both, because ... you know ... you can't have one without the other.

Wow, has it really been five and a half months since someone has posted on this? I would love to get some new info on this and/or the R2-D2 premium format. I really haven't been followig the Sideshow scene too much lately. So, I am hoping a fellow scummer can enlighten me with any type of udates, rumors, etc...

Anyone???

Knowing SS and their Premium Format statues I'm 100% sure this will light up. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif
