I just saw that.....Ugh.....I am so behind on the busts....I need the Clone Trooper, Firgrin D'an, Golden Rod and now her.....I am a little disappointed in their choice for a bust....Why not the ESB Bounty Hunters? Why not more Cantina denizens, Hammerhead, etc? There are better possibilities for that line than her...

??? Is she that popular that they think this will sell alot? Easy pass for me with the others out there that Im after.

I like the character, and I think the bust looks great. At the same time, I'm not sure I like the character enough to purchase something at this size or in this price range.

Looks cool. Definitely didn't see them making her 1:1.

Pass.
For me this is the look for Ventress:

congrats to SS for doing something different I suppose.

But I have no interest in this one.

I like her, but a pissed off face would have been a lot better than that neutral facial expression.

Looks neat and I am getting back into the 1:1 (preordered Figrin D'an and CPO) but this one doesn't interest me. I'm definitely an OT guy.

Me too! She looks much better like that!

I have been waiting for a good announcement on a new 1:1 bust but this one doesn't excite me one bit though, there so many choices out there better than this http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

I like Ventress but don't really care for this 1:1 bust. Needs to have a more sinister expression and not only that it doesn't really look to much like a realistic version of the current CW look to me. Not sure what it is, but it looks off to me. Could possibly be the nose.

The PF and 12" figures look much nicer IMO, as does the Gentle Giant statue.

I just wish they would make Dooku in this line.

great for those who want one, but like my PF version way better, never have liked the newer CW version.

I had the same "Huh?!?!" reaction as many of you guys did. She's a decent character, but a very funny choice for a 1:1 bust IMO. Unless it's a pretty low edition size I don't see it selling that well.

That's out of left field...... Who'd of thunk it.... I think there are other characters who need this attention first

I'm in the minority here as i actually like this. I would prefere the original Tratatovsky head though.

Hey, Rod. SilentSurfer at SSF hinted there will be an exclusive version and it will come with an extra classic Ventress head though he didn´t say if it will be DK comics or Tartakovsky´s version.

This is actually a perfect chance for SSC to test the waters with a 1:1 human style bust.

Asajj is human enough that all the details are there structurally, but they don't have to worry too much about tones and textures, because she's alien. I can see this being a test-run on how much closer they can get to humans in 1:1 form.

Plus, it looks stunning. If I bought 1:1, this would be on my list, no doubt.

Sergiu

They kind of tested these waters with the Vader bust's Anakin head

Agreed,would look so much better.I like her but not enough to buy her in this scale.

lordquigon
07-20-2011, 05:19 PM
Looks good. I prefer Asajj's new look over Tartakovsky's look but, I like her old outfit better. I'm glad she got to wear it in the "Night Sister's" Episode.

I like the 1:1 line and was happy when i seen this but after seeing the sdcc pics i can say i think they made A bad choice to make this she looks awful!

All be passing also

Odd that she would look better with the hood up rather than down. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Well that's interesting...expensive though. I like this character but two heads will be big bucks....unless they make two separate versions?

I seem to be the only person that likes this bust,. :( If i wasn't a focus collector i'd be all over it.

Someone on SSF found this bust on ebay:

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices (http://www.ebay.com/itm/370485554369?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649)

This mannequin bust looks indeed like her, with minor changes and paint apps you could have a great Asajj with way less money.

Love Ventress, dig the bust...however having a 1:1 head watching me while I work in the home office might be a bit...too...weird...

Price-wise I'm on the fence with any of the 1:1 busts. If SS did something like IG-88 with LED features, or Admiral Ackbar who released a fish smell, then I might spring for these.

They already released 1:1 Ackbar bust and you could always bring some fresh fish in the display room and leave it there for days, the odor will be terrific...

I own ackbar and must say SS hit that one out of the park. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I really love the 1:1 Bust line. I have Maul, Vader, Fett and GG for now. But I'm passing on Ventress. I just don't like the character enough to spend $500 on. I'm on the fence with the 501st clone though that looks pretty sweet.

Neal
10-27-2011, 02:15 PM
I wasn't going to buy this bust anyway, but I would've been more persuaded to if her face decor resembled the original design from the comic books. I'm not as into her Clone Wars look.

SirTristram
10-31-2011, 02:58 PM
I view this like the 1:1 Malgus.....Huge wasted opportunity and time!
At least Ventress has been around via the Clone Wars, etc.....

I cannot believe they have not made more poplar characters at this price point! Where are the rest of the ESB Bounty Hunters!?!?!??!?!?!?!?

Agreed...

I only have SS 1:1 Vader bust, but one day I will own Yoda, Fett and C-3PO...But I would love a Chewbacca 1:1 and a Tusken 1:1...That would be all for me after that.

Again, I think Sideshow is showing a lack in potential, and or, a lack in ability. This is like the first human face we see in 1:1 bust, and at that it's an easy one cause it's always been in perpetual interpretation. There is no actress behind the character. I would like a bust of important characters, not some cartoon/comic book side character. I wouldn't even consider shelling out five hundred on this. But, if we had a bust of Luke? Yeah, I would consider.

darthrage
11-01-2011, 07:16 PM
I like this a lot and am a big fan of Asajj, but just can't seem to pull the trigger. I wonder if we'll and up with a very low ES?

Don't forget the rotj Vader reveal. They CAN do it...that came out really good. I agree with your point...I think they are playing it safe.

Ok, I might be dishing out too harsh of criticism, because they are worlds better than Don Post and Rubies lifesize stuff. But still, we as a community have come to expect more, and we have all invested into such accuracy (the reason we collect this stuff), meaning with the amount of cash they've reaped they could sow much better in ideas and product accuracy.

SolidLiquidFox

Agreed that their priority in the 1:1 bust line should be to finish off the ESB bounty hunters.

I am a fan of Asajj Ventress, but much more so of the original comic version. I am not as crazy about the CW version. Defintitely not $500 crazy. Too bad. If this was the original comic version, I would have tried to hunt it down for a little cheaper down the line. Now... I would have to find it crazy cheap to consider.

I think the bust is really great, I don't need it but the sculpt from Yordu Shell is really fantastic.

Would be great to see more human busts from him for SSC like the Tarkin bust he did... or Luke Skywalker... or Leia... or a Alec-Obi-Wan...

sooo with alot of you saying pass on this bust.... what do you guys think is going to happen? i actually want this bust but $500 is a bit much...
im not too familiar with SSC and ive just started gettign into them. do they sale stuff like this if it doesnt sell? will we see here reduced drastically? should i wait?
and help be great.. honestly im thinking if i can get her at around $300 i would. thoughts?

DarthLuumzl
04-23-2012, 03:13 AM
Hmmm, not easy to answer... I think on the second market (ebay or other collectors...) you will be able to get it.
I would recommend you to wait, I do the same cause if I get it for less than 300 I will be in too.

07-24-2012, 04:30 PM
$300? Will never happen. SW items rarely loose their value, especially if done right. This bust is truly excellent, sculpt and paint wise, something that will get appreciated once sold out.
It's not a movie character, so what - Look at Talon for example... With SS busts hitting the $799 mark, $500 suddenly looks...Well, affordable.

shoptoylife
07-26-2012, 06:36 AM
I really want to start in on the bust collecting. Right now General Grievous 1:1 bust is my holy grail and even on Ebay the sales of the bust has dried up, but when they were available the ticket was around $600-$800. Ventress is another one I want to get - the sculpt and paint on this is fantastic, very dramatic!

MrFlavaFlave
07-31-2012, 12:16 PM
It's not a movie character, so what...

That is my reason to pass, as the Canon Sandtrooper would say, "move along..." ;)

It has to be a character from the SW movie universe that people want, and Ventress is a cartoon character, nothing against that, it is just not that popular with a majority of the SW fans, who know and love the films. That is why the Darth Malgus figure will not sell out on the SSC website, now when that 1:1 Vader from ROTJ that Gino made ever gets mass-produced, that WILL sell out fast. There is your difference and my reasons for not buying this bust.

I got this bust in the mail last night. Pretty cool looking bust.

It was a bit strange to unpack. Felt a bit like I was pulling someone's head out of the styrofoam.
