View Full Version : SSC 1:1 Scale Busts: Wish List

Well, so far I'm very impressed with the quality of these busts, and I personally think an Obi-Wan Kenobi would be an amazing piece to own, and since there's a few incarnations to pick from, I thought it might be a fun topic for discussion if SSC were to ever make one.

When I visited SSC last year, I asked them about making the core characters. They said that they don't think they would make the human characters because the busts wouldn't be as dynamic as the aliens. They also said that they can't make hemeted characters because that's in Master Replicas' licence.

That being what it is, I'd still love to see an Emperor bust. Or Plo Koon.

My top picks are:

1. Chewie
2. Aayla
3. Palpatine

Good call Dave, the Emperor would be pretty sweet and I have no doubt it would be done masterfully. I'd love to see a Chewbacca to see if they'd use hair instead of sculpture and how they'd do with that. I hope they change their minds on the human thing though, if you did Obi-Wan in any appearance but TPM, with his hair and beard there's quite something to make there, if they used hair instead of sculpture, and that would be a beautiful piece, so hopefully maybe if there's enough fan support they might venture that route.

Bossk

Ponda Baba
Asajj Ventress
Grievous



I love love love this list.

I'd also add at least one Neimoidian. I know they aren't everybody's favorite characters, but I think they'd translate really well into the format (espcially with those great hats).

I could also go for:
Watto
Djas Puhr
Gammorean
Pablo-Jill

Maybe SS can get around the human sculpt issue by giving us a Thrawn!

I'm not really into busts, although that 1:1 Darth Maul bust looks really cool, I would consider adding it to my collection if the right opportunity came by.
Otherwise, about the only 1:1 bust I think I would like would be a General Grievous.
I guess a Battle Droid or Tusken Raider could be cool too.

What I would really like is a wall mounted plaque of a Tauntaun head, much like how a hunter would stuff and mount an elk head.

Unsurprisingly, humans are precision face-recognizing machines, and we notice *anything* that's even a little bit off, so a realistic full-color bust would have to be *perfect* in order to not look sort of unsettling. The nickname for this effect is "The Uncanny Valley", and it currently plagues digital effects folks.

Thrawn, like Maul, has odd coloration which ought to help offset this problem (once the color is unreal, the brain paradoxically can accept other flaws it wouldn't have otherwise). Provided he's popular enough (which seems very possible, given the edition sized), I'd say he could well be on the table where other human figures wouldn't be.

D. Martin

I couldn't see Thrawn being more successful than Greedo. I think they'll stick with total icons.

I'm only getting the Yoda bust in this line, but I think that a Tusken Raider and Admiral Ackbar would be awesome.

I tend to agree with this sentiment about the EU in general (not just Thrawn). The only thing that gives me pause is that once you're looking at edition sizes in the hundreds, you don't necessarily need the character to be that broadly popular. I still don't think Thrawn's the guy for that, but I bet they can do somewhat less iconic film characters like the background cantina aliens.

IMO the reason for getting one of these is to have something as close as possible to the on-screen character so would therefore say...

1) Chewbacca (but only if they could do it with hair)
2) Bossk
3) Gamorrean
4) "Death Star" droid

Chewie would be a great choice.

I've not bought either Greedo, Maul or Yoda and have noe real plans to get in to this line. I do think all three busts look fantastic though and of all the possibilities I would really be interested to see Sideshow do a Chewbacca bust.

In terms of what I would consider buying, then I would really like to see Palpatine (preferably a ROTJ version) or Dooku. I can see myself cracking and buying the Maul bust at some point in 2007.

Combat2000
11-05-2006, 10:15 AM
I'd love to have the Greedo, but I want to see if the price goes down any, although with only 300, I don't know that it will. If I had to pick one bust it would be palpatine (ROTJ) or Boushh.

The_Mike
11-07-2006, 11:39 PM
Boushh skirts the helmet issue too closely, I don't think it'll ever get made.

I've got both SW busts, and I am very happy with them. I also got in on the Yoda bust. I don't know how far I am going to go with this line though. I guess it depends on what they come up with.

With that being said though, I would definitely grab Figrin Da'an. Chewbacca would also be a must for me.
C-3PO would make a neat bust as well.

Jedi_Jake
11-26-2006, 11:30 PM
I would buy a Chewie bust.

as others have said, grievous would be the only 1:1 bust i would buy. my second choice would actually have been maul, but i passed when he was realeased. so if they make the general, please make sure there is a motion detector that makes him cough when i walk in front of him. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

i would be devistated if this line ended. i think its done well for SS so far. with a 1000 made of yoda and maul they sold out. i'm sure greedo isnt too far away from a sell out either.

I have a feeling they'll be showing off the next bust in the line at C4. If not C4 then definitely SDCC.

Outer_Rim
04-23-2007, 05:52 AM
As they won´t make plain human busts and with Yoda and Maul done only Palpatine, Vader/Anakin revealed ROTS or ROTJ and Theed Amidala TPM would be must have to me. Although Grievous and Plo Koon would be very tempting too.

Mister_Gosh
04-23-2007, 12:58 PM
Given that they've said that they're keeping this to one or two releases a *year*, I don't think anybody should be bothered that we've not seen anything upcoming yet.

In other words, they have no confidence in their human sculpts... And for good reason...

My Obi-Wan, Han and Leia PFs say otherwise.

SirTristram
05-11-2007, 01:29 PM
Maul is humanoid. He looks fine to me. I would think that the larger the sculpt the better and more detailed it would be. I have seen some great human sculpts in 1:1 scale. They could do it. What a cop-out if they don't.
Although, there are plety of other chracters to make who are not human.

K_D
05-11-2007, 04:50 PM
I agree the Han Leia and Obi-Wan pf face sculpts are awesome.
They could always get Howard who sculpted the 1:1 Yoda to sclupt them some human busts, his Obi-Wan is awesome.

As I recall, they were intentionally going to keep this line to about two per year so as not to overwhelm budgets. Given that, it *might* be that Crumb is taking the "slot" for the next half-year's bust (since he's in roughly the same price/size category).

But perhaps they'll trot something out closer to X-mas as part of their whole "holiday surprise" thing.

Given that they've explictly said they're unlikely to do helmeted or human characters, I'd have to guess we're looking at a Jedi Council member here. Plo Koon has a pretty nifty design that would benefit from the 1:1 treatment.

That Obi-Wan would be great though.

I don't think humans are that far off....Since they've Seen Howard S.;s sculpts...I think they've changed their minds.

Well I certainly wouldn't cry if that were the case. That Kenobi sculpt is mind-blowing.

Of course, nearly all the alien Jedi would make for pretty reasonable choices too. Some really distinctive designs there.

Yeah, I know, but I sort of meant too long and hanging when I said 'Big'
the Twi-Lek's and Kit have those tendrils that hang way below their necks and on a bust that may be too difficult to display for most people.

Admiral Ackbar would be very cool. I've always loved the character and he's never been given enough respect when it comes to being done in different lines. It's been years since they released an action figure of him, so getting a 1:1 scale would be awesome.
