Damn, man!
I know people will poo-poo this, but it's Star Wars....It's a chick....and she's a bad [censored] Sith! ....Really, what is not to like? It's not like Sideshow is going to lose the license anytime soon. They crank these out!
Personally, I am psyched for this!

Check her out!

I still would've preferred oola, but this does look interesting. I am not sure I like how she is holding her saber...a more dynamic pose would have been better imho.

Sergiu

She is really cool, but since I'm only collecting OT Imperials this is an easy pass.

Yeah, I am not exactly sure why she is holding it out so far...But, I still dig it.
I actually have not even read the comics that she is in, but I just love the look of this character.
Someone suggested that she might look good standing back to back with the Ventress PF! Not a bad idea.

I'll be buying the Darth Talon PF for sure. Should look great next to the other Sith.

Very cool! I was expecting this to be the first "mystery" priority preorder, but no doubt we'll get more info during Spooktacular. I wonder what the exclusive will be?

I like the idea of a Talon PF, but I'm not sure about the pose. Is she supposed to be disrobing?

Really, what is not to like?




That this character is a cheap and desperate attempt to copy Darth Maul and his popularity.
That it is EU.

I am really 50/50 on this - for one, it does look really cool, but for another, I do not know if I want to purchase a PF of a character that I don't know very well, nor will probably take the time to read up on any time soon. If she makes it into a video game I would play or into a future movie or animated series, then I would certainly pick her up, but for now... not convinced. Of course this is only my own internal process, and I am sure many will be happy to add Talon right away - and I am happy for those collectors for sure.

Cheap and Desperate?
OK....

I never thought of anything having to do with Star Wars was 'desperate'.

Besides....It seems that fans wanted more Maul...and since he's dead....

...and Talon is alive and kicking a great many years after Maul's demise.
So, Maul is the only one like that? The only red, tattooed Sith?
That would make him more unique than Yoda (after Yaddle made her appearance).....Yeah. I don't think so. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

I am quite surprised about the mixed reaction on this one. I heard for the longest time how SW needs more female characters and I think they've (authors, lucasfilm, etc) finally listened.

Yes, I would have liked this PF to be Oola, but it's not. I'm sure Oola will get her day, but for now, this is one cool character and cool statue.

just my 2 cents.

Tusken_Raiders
10-23-2009, 01:23 PM
Even though the pics arent great...that PF is looking great so far..The hard part for me is that Im really trying to get out of Pre-OT & EU and stick to OT...But it does look real good. I wouldnt want to cancel this pre-order and then its better than I thought...

I guess I will order, but it will depend on shipping time, price, exclusive piece & most important edition size...

Put me down for one. I'm a fan of the EU, always have been and always will be.

With no more movies coming out it's the only way to get new Star Wars stories.

And I'm assuming the OT purists consider both The Clone Wars cartoon and the upcoming live action series as EU too.

I like EU, especially ANH-ESB-ROTJ-post ROTJ eras, at least some of the EU is better than what Georgie imagined for us in Prequels. But I'm not getting Talon since my focus are OT Imperials - though after seeing a PF Stormtrooper in the future I wouldn't mind seeing some EU troopers as well...

No, it's unconfirmed whether Talon will be the PPO. Purely speculation at this point.

SirTristram
10-28-2009, 10:29 PM
Not confirmed, but it is a good bet. There are only two slots for PF's and they are both her...One Exclusive, One regular.
It's caused more fervor that any other piece so far in Spooktacular and it is the last PPO.
It's Star Wars...We know she coming and Star Wars pieces always cause the most disruption on PPO days.

I agree that this is going to be tomorrow's PPO with the ex. version coming with the cloth robe.

I thought somewhere it was confirmed that it was the PPO and I didn't see that. Judging from the fanbase and how quickly their SW PF line sells, this makes perfect sense to be the mystery PPO.

The same thing happened with me.

I may be in the same boat. Got and error, never got a confirmation and when I try to place an order for the Waitlist it says I've already ordered one. So not sure what's going on. Called SS and they can't see anything on their end until Monday.

Not sure how this is going to play out and I've never had this happen before. I guess if I don't get the Exclusive, not the end of the world, but just surprised at the reaction to this one and the trouble I had. Crazy. Cross my fingers I guess!

for everyone who had problems with the Ex and can't tell whether they got it or not, jump on the waitlist now, and when you find out if you got it or not, either cancel your waitlist or hang tight.

The ES may be low, but the wait list is a great route - I know just about everyone here has used it.

Well, son of *. I was in as soon as PPO started checked out and find that I have a waitlist.

Damn. I am so annoyed at this. I was at lunch and had to iPhone this one in and it took what seemed like and age to process and no wonder.

Blast it.

Wow...she's ummm perky!

Legacy is by far my current favorite EU. For me, it helped reboot the series after the terrible (in my opinion) Vong storyline. What's not to like a drug-addicted Skywalker with a predisposition for evil deeds. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Darth Talon and Darth Krayt are the stand-out sith of the series.

I don't think this PF captures her face well, but I guess a bit of artist license is allowed for comic book characters that are drawn by multiple artists. She looks too doe-eyed and complacent to me...

After all these years of SW collecting, this is my first-ever PF pre-order. Very strange too. I totally forgot about it, but just happened to be on the computer a few minutes before it went up. Lucked out & got my order in on time for the Ex. version.

After I've had some time to study the photos better, wow, what a fantastic piece! Even though it's apples & oranges, glad I passed on GG's upcoming mini-bust now. And IMHO, the cloak being disrobed just adds to the sultry nature of the piece. But she looks good with or w/out the robe so ya can't go wrong either way.

I posted this tidbit about her last Feb:

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________


Some background, for the EU-adverse out there;

Besides her visually striking character design, Darth Talon also possesses the feminine wiles to back it up. :beep: :beep: :beep:

She's even "deepened the bond" with Luke's great-grandson, Cade, who already has a girlfriend, that Sithy strumpet! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif

In fact, I would be surprised if this doesn't eventually go on second chance once the reality of forking over almost $300 sets in and the scalpers realize an edition size of 400 is large for an obscure star wars character, where the exclusive is not a must-have. In fact I think she looks better without it, which can't be said for grievous.

Don't know if I agree with this completely. The Exclusive of this sold out in about 2 minutes (which I've never seen for a PF before) and I've seen many posts both here and at SideshowCollectors that 'this is my first PF' or something to that effect. This figure is bringing in new people to the line which makes me think that this will never go to Second Chance. Some will get converted I agree and some of the luster will wear off by the time she ships, but the 'hotness' of the figure is attracting too many for this to go to Second Chance.

I agree. I submit that this is going to be one of those pieces that garners attention and people will like even more when they get it. Some people don't even care that it is a Star Wars piece.

I have a feeling most of the ladies will eventually get made - if they can make Talon a hit (and they have!), and she is solely from comics, then I have no doubt that Aayla can be popular as well.

Edition size is now 650 pieces for the Exclusive version.

Perhaps they sold more than they thought they would and upped the edition size which then converted Wait List orders into actual orders.

Got the same email, seems a bit strange but now it definitely appears more likely that most Wait-Listers will get converted since they increased the edition size by more than 50%. Interesting move and I'm sure the wild success of the figure made them change the edition size for the exclusive.

I'm a little disappointed about this, too. It kind of ruins the appeal of these collectibles if companies can just up the edition size any time they choose right up until release. Come on, SS, you're better than that!

I'm not too fussed. 650 is still a reasonable number. I think this statue will be saught after by collectors a long time after it's sold out. She's just far too hot.

Yep, I agree with you. I wish SS would have said 'due to the overwhelming response during the PPO we have decided to increase the Exclusive Edition size...." or something like that because I don't think it was an error and at least that would be straightforward. The email that I got said that the edition size on the Exclusive should have been posted as TBD and wasn't, but I don't buy that because I haven't seen that for other exclusives before. Usually the TBD is posted on the regular editions.

The 650 edition size still isn't huge, but as I mentioned before it is more than 50% higher than the 400 originally posted which is a substantial increase. Very curious move IMO. But I guess at the end of the day, it's all about the mightly dollar. SS makes no money with people sitting on a waitlist. It's a little disappointing, but not going to be up in arms about it.

slynger
11-19-2009, 06:11 PM
there are several key points here;

first off, I sincerely hope that every collector that wants one is able to get one

but at the same time, some of us that truly want one are also intrigued by the limited status of said collectible

I will use the eFX X-wing as an example - I would have gotten that even if they made 10,000 of them, but the fact that only 838 were made makes it that much more unique. Now, I will never sell my X-wing, but would have been downright pi$$ed if eFX just randomly upped the ES to 1500 after quoting it at 838 and I know a lot of other collectors would be as well.

bottom line for me is that SS has never done this (at least to my knowledge) and bothers me because I can see this happening more in the future.

We all know what it truly is; dishonesty from a respectable company. I hope this was only a one time "rare" mistake as they say it was.

DarthPhlegethon
11-19-2009, 07:11 PM
Two things:

-Less seriously, since she's an evil character, it would have been cool if they just made the ES 666 instead of 650

-More seriously, now that the ES has increased by over 60%, I wonder how many cancellations will suddenly occur. Perhaps not many since 650 is still a pretty small number, but it is a fair bit bigger than 400.

SgtPsych

11-25-2009, 07:41 PM
Don't like the facial sculpt. Don't know what model or frame of reference they used, but she doesn't look like the comic book to me. An articulated 12" would be more fun to pose anyway - the 3.75" Talon was very well done, just no bendable elbows unfortunately.

Seeing as just like Aayla she isnt wearing much, I'd hate them to do her as a 12" and ruin her.
