Check this out! Grievous is simpy unbelievable! Everyone is clamoring for the SS version but after seeing this I'm not sure which version is the best. I can't believe the detail this has, just look at the cape and the sabers in the cape! Freakin' awesome!!! Thanks for posting the pics, I couldn't get the freakin' link to work.

Too bad they got the color wrong. Sideshow wins this one.

I like it, but I'm sticking with the SS if I can afford it.

Well, after studying all the pics, I gotta say I have finally picked my favorite outta this one and the SS one. The winner to me is.......this attakus version. I love the detail, paint app, and the pose is awesome!

SS looks better, more movie accurate. The Attakus looks like the unleashed GG.

time to vote.

Sideshow. SS has more real feeling than a statue feeling if you see it in person.

Okay, if we have to vote.

SS (that beauty was just breathstopping at CIII)

Hello, everyone.

I saw both in person.
Attakus, no doubt. SS is indeed very demonstrative but you should wait to see Attakus "live". Lots of SS votes will then change, I guarantee http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif !!!

Who says either SS or Attakus have the colour right? They're both prototypes, are they not?

Anyway, I prefer the Attakus version.

Darth Pain, there is no freakin' way this looks like the unleashed grievous!!! You know how everybody always says that you can't really tell by the pics how awesome the attakus statues are??? Well, I found that out to be totally true. I never thought they looked all that great or atleast not what is charged for them until I finally bought one awhile back and the attakus statues need to be seen in person to truely appreciate them. They are awesome. I still think they are overpriced though.

Well, considering that both of these are coming from places that I usually consider out of my price range, I would have to go with SS just because it is the cheaper one. But I also do like the Attakus one too.

my feelings exactly. i already have the SS pre-ordered and will for sure get the attakus grevious. once i find the best deal on ebay. attakus are always better in person.

Not only do I think that sideshow's is better. I think it's MUCH better.

Not saying that attakus is crap. It's very nice. Sideshow wins though.

Sideshow wins this one. Seeing their Grievous in person, I was amazed at how lifelike it was. It looked like he was about to come right over and slash my head off. It literally looks like they got the real thing (granted, there is no "real thing", just CGI) and shrunk him down a few feet--he is incredibly realistic and dynamic, and has a presence that a little Attakus statue could not match.

Sideshow, hands down.

Hmmmm. I thought the Attakus statue looked better in prototypes, but after seeing it painted I think I prefer SS's rendition. They're both excellent though. Too bad he's such a crappy, lame character.

I've seen "in live" the attakus twice this week, and it's simply amazing.
It's one of the better statue ever made in quality (i hate the character)

Attakus MSRP $580 probably close to $500 retail
Sideshow MSRP $450 and probably $365 retail.

But then you have to add that the SS is a 1/4 scale and much bigger with alot of the figure being made of metal parts.

I do think the Attakus looks good but when you compare price and quality added to the fact SS version looks better IMHO there really is no doubt for me which one to get. I will get the bigger, better, and $100+ cheaper statue.

I thought Attakus was supposed to be 1/3 on characters...it should be bigger than the SS right?

Jesseawilson
01-05-2006, 02:52 PM
It's like 1:5 or something. They are just bigger then the GG 1:6 pieces. For example Chewbacca is only 17inches, at 1/3 scale he would be about 28 inches.

lol...yeah...maybe that's what I was thinking. But, Chewy is hunched over, so if standing up straight he'd be taller. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Attakus Grievous will have the better paintjob, that's something you can be sure. Just take a look at the two first PF statues from Sideshow in the SW line. Luke and Han didn't look like on the prototyp-photos.

But with Attakus i never had any problems with the paintjob (and i got 19 statues). They always looked as good as on prototyp-photos.

But hey, both will be great!
That's why i have ordered both of them.

A few things... Attakus seems to have "overdone" the marbling effects on the head. They look painted on and obvious, whereas Sideshow's application looks more natural and realistic. The vertical black lines above the eyes are too pronounced and end in arrows/points that are too wide/big on Attakus' version. The "mouth" made up of the four vertical silver stripes are sloppy and uneven on the Attakus figure, and seem to be much sharper and symmetrical on SS Grievous. The "ear" pieces on the Attakus version are perhaps a bit too skinny, and certainly are not angled/tapered as well as the Sideshow version. The "cheekbones" or space underneath between the eye sockets and the edge of the skull is a bit too small on the Attakus sculpt; the Sideshow version's "snout" flows into the rest of the skull in a less angular fashion, allowing more space under the eyes. The Attakus sculpt has slightly oversized eyes, compared to the shot from the film above. Many aspects of the Sideshow version seem incredibly sharp and well defined, leaving the Attakus version looking a little rougher around the edges. Sideshow has produced a very sharp piece. Attakus' looks more like a cheaper action figure or toy, due to a little bit of roughness in the details. These are just a few reasons why I prefer the Sideshow version. Feel free to disagree! The important thing is that we each get the version we like best. Or get both if you have an extra thousand bucks...

I have to vote for Attakus. I like SS, but all the sabers are not necessary, even though he had them in the movie. The Attakus has a better pose, and I love the cape.

I like the attakus version better, actually alot better. I just really don't like the mixed media pieces very much either. I used to have the SS luke and to me with the real clothing it just looked like a 12" fig or something. I am in the camp that likes statues to be all polystone. I love the detailing of polystone capes, just look at GG's vader statue. The attakus grievous also has a better pose.
