Will you be scanning the pics for those of us outside the U.S who can't buy the magazine? PLEASE!
Can you give us a little information on the pose, lightsaber etc.

DarthBeek
01-30-2007, 03:11 PM
I can provide pics in a couple hours if that is alright with the 'Scum staff!

Pose ~ Leaning forward with left arm up open palm/hand and to the side, right arm behind him holding saber ignited at an angle. Ohhh, and a pissed off look on his face!

Oh yes light up sabers a must!

The obvious choice for exclusive is a probe droid similar to Obi-wans training remote, or perhaps the option of full or battle damaged saber, but a BD saber option could even be included with a regular edition....

Posting a photo from a for-profit magazine doesn't fall under copyright law? It's not Sideshow's copyright that's at question. It's Tomart's copyright, because it's their photo.

Should Tomart wish to take action, it would be against the *board* and not the person who posted the picture (asuuming the posting isn't "fair use", which would be legal, but I don't know if it is considered that). So the argument "but someone else has the image up elsewhere" doesn't really count.

But thanks for calling us dumb.

No problem. Anytime you wanna suggest that posting a pic advertising a highly anticipated PF (at no expense to Sideshow); working people in a fevered pitch to at least get a glimpse of it (let alone buy it) I'll be here to call you the same thing. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

Hey, I'm not saying I *like* it, but unless you know that it constitutes fair use, then it *is* posting a copyrighted photo without permission. Doesn't matter that it's an ad because it isn't *Sideshow* who has the copyright here, it's Tomart's. They own that photo. You can claim any kind of random reason why they don't have a copyright on it, but it doesn't make it so.

Now, a board posting may well represent "fair use" of a copyrighted image, but that wouldn't mean that the copyright is somehow negated, it just would mean it would be legal to use the image.

Obviously my post wasn't debating whether it was legal or not.

For what it is worth, I decided to pull the pics......

I see they were captured elsewhere and that is fine. Seeing everyone get so amped up for them was a treat this afternoon. After trying to notify a couple Moderators with no response I showed them but decided to take down.

Per the small print in the Tomart magazine ~

No part of this publication may be reproduced, transmitted, or stored in any form by any means, electronic or mechanical, without prior written permission from Tomart Publications.

Seems pretty cut and dry to me.

It wouldn't be Sideshow who would have the claim, it would be Tomart's.



Obviously my post wasn't debating whether it was legal or not.


It wasn't obvious.

Someone asked why there might be a copyright issue, I answered the question. I never claimed the pics should be taken down or that it was likely that Tomarts (and not Sideshow!) would do anything.
You're the one who started in with the "shut up you're dumb" stuff. I was just trying to provide info.

So much for Sideshow saying that they wouldn't release the same character for both the 1/4 PF scale and 1:6 scale (12" inch) lines. I guess this means ANY character is now possible for both lines. That is indeed good news!

SS PF Maul looks very good. I love how they captured the spirit of the character by the pose.

Did they say that they wouldn't release the same character in both lines or that they wouldn't release them at the same time? The latter seems more likely, or else there's a bunch of Vader fans collecting the 12" line who are going to be very sad pandas.

Hurray!
I was hoping for a PF Maul soon.
A) Darth Maul is a a bad mofo and a favorite character.
B) That starts to shift the balance back to the PT just a bit. I'm a SAGA fan so I like a more even balance.
C) I was just about to buy a 1:6 Maul from SSC, now I won't bother. I don't collect the 1:6 line so it doesn't really make sense.
D) I hope there is another suprise Star Wars PF at Toy Fair. I would like 3 per year and don't want to wait until C4 and SDCC for another announcement... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

DARTHBORAT

It's not Sideshow's, but Tomart's lawyers that are causing the problems. Tomart is NOTORIOUS for threatening legal action on sneak peeks like this. It hasn't happened in a long while, mostly because Tomart's hasn't gotten any sneak peeks in a while.

Woody
01-31-2007, 08:03 AM
That's a must buy for me. Not too crazy on the pose though. Sideshow's 12" Darth Maul is amazing and I've no doubt the PF version will be just as stunning.

DarthMatrix
01-31-2007, 09:30 AM
Pose could have been better but this is a must for me. I imagine a quick sellout for this PF.

You are correct in the latter comment. SS said they would not release the same version of a figure on both lines in a close time frame.

Is it just me or does anyone notice that SS is releasing basically the same characters for their PF line that Gentle Giant has released on plans to release?

Gentle Giant does a Boba Fett statue...SS releases one as well.

GG does a Maul statue...SS does one as well.

At this rate, I'm optimistic that the rumors of a SS Slave Leia are true. As much as I like GG, I prefer the SS statues so I guess I can patiently wait till SS releases their PF version of Slave Leia or Imperial Guard.

It's only a matter of time.

As cool as it is to see a PF version of Maul, I was hoping this statue would not come out so soon. I was really digging the fact that SS was making statues of characters that have basically not been done before in other lines.

Dagobah Luke
Tatooine Luke
Obi-Wan ANH
Princess Leia ANH

C'mon SS!!! Make us a Lando ESB PF statue. Where's the love for Lando?

Kwerve_Supper
01-31-2007, 04:08 PM
This is the second pass in the PF line for me, at least for now. Too much overlap with Maul representations already released in the last couple of years. I might pick one up down the road, but I've accepted I won't be getting every PF released, which takes the pressure off.

I'd be in agreement, but that Maul pose REALLY looks like the pose he struck for Obi-Wan immediately after poking a hole in Master Jinn, if you ask me. Unless we want a PF QGJ whose out on the floor... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

DARTHBORAT
01-31-2007, 11:45 PM
THj there is no question that from looking at the pose for Maul it looks like the obvious pairing would be Obi-Wan
but I am not sure if SSC would make Padawan Obi in PF that's why I thought we would see Qui-Gon.

02-02-2007, 02:27 PM
ah, lame exclusive, but I know that there probably weren't many other options. I just don't like that they'd throw in a droid when the PF itself is standing in the generator room-thing from the Theed Palace.

02-02-2007, 05:03 PM
I'd like to see his sith robe as the exclusive rather than the probe... of course they'd have to somehow make the sleeves break away at some point to get it on (since there wouldnt be any way to slide his arms in, especially if the saber isn't removable)

That would also cover up the awkward pose ^_^

I don't. I have the PF Fett ordered directly from Sideshow, but seeing that it hasn't shipped yet, I don't qualify. I think there will be some available for others after the 2-hour window.

Mace__Windu
02-09-2007, 09:48 AM
I am surpirised this new ordering policy is not creating any buzz on these forums. This new policy now limits the amount of people that will get first crack. I, for one, have all the PFs but Luke. Some I have bought from Sideshow, some I have not, depends on the exclusive item. Could there be no buzz because some people are not interested in this version of Maul. Another question is what about the ADs that get PFs. Are they still allowed to order them.

THX182
02-09-2007, 11:36 AM
So who here qualified to order the EX? I am



I'm not and that pisses me off. I don't like this thing one bit. What does it matter who bought PFs from them in the past? Not fair. Some people only buy characters they like and passed on all the others but really want Maul. They now have to pray that there are some EX versions left. Boba will be my first PF figure so I don't qualify. That is really sucky that I might miss the EX version of Maul because I didn't want to buy their previous releases. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif

ambasah
02-09-2007, 09:30 PM
I really don't get why they are not making this "inclusive" like their other stuff. I qualify for the exclusive and will be getting it, but feel for those who aren't able to. 1000 is a really small number and the $300 price tag is cheaper than other PF out there, so I will be surprised if this thing doesn't sell out. The saber lighting up is a definate plus, but agree with others on the lame pose and lamer exclusive.

Yup. I just found this also. I'm qualified and ready to order. I was kind fo skeptical of this piece at first... but I've seen more pictures now and am gonna order. I like Maul a lot. Always a favorite of the Sith... so it's a natural choice for my collection.

Just got the official e-mail from SS regarding placing my order. Anybody else get one?

This Sideshow Exclusive edition will be pre-ordered in a very unique way on Tuesday, February 13th, 2007. ***Sideshow Collectibles will be offering previous Star Wars
Premium Format collectors the opportunity to place their pre-orders FIRST!***

I also read that the light sabers will be able to light up but via battery only. Not AC adapter will be included.http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif

I really don't think it's a big deal as to the new pre-order policy for this figure. People who have been interested in the EX versions of any past SS PF figures have ordered directly from them and would qualify for the EX of Maul.

Many people have bought PF figures for a lot less from dealers and decided the exclusives weren't worth the extra cash to shell out by ordering directly from SS. If anything, it's a nice perk for those who decided to pay the extra money to buy these figures at retail price.

I'm sure after the two hours are over, you may still be able to order an exclusive. If not, get on the waiting list. You almost always end up getting a second chance at buying these pricier high end items.

For those who weren't aware, the PF Maul's saber lights up and the hand that holds the saber is removable and it is where the saber gets it's power since he is battery powered. The "skirt" has bendy wires in it to make it poseable also. Much like the hoods of the 1:6 figure Jedi robes.

The new rule stinks for real. I can't purchase every premium under the sun, so I don't qualify http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif. I didn't want Maul, but that's not the point. I am holding out on a premium for my favorite character, young Obi. If they ever do one in the future, and I won't qualify for the exc I am going to be one pissed chick....

02-13-2007, 11:14 AM
I wish I could order it now like some of you can. I'll just wait to see if the exclusive is available, if not, no big deal. I think it is completely awesome that his saber lights up!! I didn't know that it did! I think that sealed the deal for me!!! It is a good feeling to be this excited about Star Wars statues again, since all GG does is takes a dump on its fans.

I am real excited about getting this one too. At first I did not know if I liked it after seeing the pictures from the magazine. The more I see the pictures from the TF the more I seem to like it now. I am also anticipating (more like hoping) to see a young Obi-wan to go with this piece someday http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif. So I will try and remain a completist in the exclusive PF line today - hopefully they don't sell out too fast http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

The_Mike
02-13-2007, 11:27 AM
I haven't decided whether or not I'll get this piece. The pose isn't the first I would choose but the robes and the detail really make it one of the better looking PFs available from the Star Wars line. If I can swing the Exclusive whenever it opens up to the general public I might order it and think about it until it ships but if the exclusive is all sold out then I think I might shop around for it or pass completely. I like Maul but his oversaturation by SSC makes each piece less exciting, he's already got a 1:1, 12", 1/4...all he needs is a diorama and he's completely done.

Oh, an Jedi Luke? If they offered up a Jedi Luke I'd be all over it in a second. The PF offer is for any PF purchased through SSC right not just SW? I have the Captain America and Hulk on order so I should be eligible for the next one...

DarthMatrix
02-13-2007, 11:33 AM

If this happens to be the case, I hate to see what happens if this bleeds into other lines like Marvel or LOTR, haven't purchased a SW piece in 1/4 scale yet but I'm considering it.

As for Wednesday's announcement I'm actually thinking that it won't be a PF because of Maul and Luke/Yoda being so recent.....although I wouldn't mind a Jedi Luke announcement!

Agreed. Plus as some have said, the detail is insane on this piece. Look at the boots in some of the shots. Wow. The light up feature is nice, but why no AC adaptor? It shouldn't matter too much. I cannot say that I light up the Obi and Vader often though.

All of the 1:4 Scale statue's from Sideshow are considered Premium Format. It's the Exclusive and Regular versions that make them different. The Grievous Exclusive came with a cape while the regular version did not.



ohh...well then i just got the regular grievous without the cape.
there was a major price difference in the exclusive grievous and the regular.
anybody know what the cost difference is on the maul exclusive and the regular version?

So did I, which is interesting because honestly the PFs don't hold that much of their value...some not all drop below MSRP while others hover right above it...it really speaks to the popularity of the character.

I passed though because if they offer up the Droids and/or Leia I'd rather my money go there and something tells me that SSC has some rather expensive surprises up their sleeves...

02-13-2007, 06:54 PM
I think in all the Star Wars films, 2 characters stand out as being ideal for 3D collectibles, Boba Fett and Darth Maul. Now Vader's great and the list can go on, but in my opinion, those two just have certain traits that make collectibles of them versatile and appealing. The fact that Maul was played as a martial artist Sith allows an almost enless supply of creative ideas on displaying him, you could come up with at least 20 solid poses of Maul for a PF, he's just a great collecting character. Obviously there's an imbalance, but I'd wager a fair ammount of PF buyers are like myself and have the 1:1 bust and 1:6 figure and are thrilled at having a full collection of SSC Maul merchandise, but those numbers will be small cuz Maul bust ES is 500 so that's only half of the exclusives in a best case. Now if they just come out with a Maul related diorama soon, that pretty much covers it all, but no, it doesn't because with him possibilities are endless.

the propbe droid exclusive is cool but not a must have. i might even end up canceling my exc. for the reg version. the reg version will cost around $240 through retailers.

whats kind of strange is that the exclusive(luke in vader helmet) for the luke/yoda statue can still be had as a 2nd chance offer through SS. to me thats by far the best exclusive.

From what I could tell from mine, it looks great... or it is supposed to. Mine came smashed. I am currently waiting for SSC to email me that replacements have come in.

I think that along with Grievous' cape are the two coolest exclusives.

I don't find the probe droid 100% necessary, but I'll see how the money goes nearer the time this comes out before I decide if I am gonna cancel and grab a regular edition off of eBay for cheaper.

After looking at the pics again, I DO like the added detail of the wiring on the back of the probe droid. It needed to have something different from the 12" accessory pack.

I agree the Dagobah Luke exclusive is the best...and I vote that the Boba Fett wall shield will be the WORST.

Exactly. In all honesty, they can keep the probe droid, especially since it was recently done for the 12" line.

I think really good exclusive would have been Qui-Gon's light saber placed on a smaller, separate platform that maul is standing on.

THAT would be worth the extra 20 bucks.

I passed on Maul for the time being as way too many stuff coming out from MR, GG and SSC, but like with Vader and Obi (only 2 I have) I will get the regular version later on.

I was curious if people thought maybe the Ex probe droid will be better when this actually comes out as the proto looked thrown together?

jocco
02-13-2007, 10:09 PM
None of the regular PFs have held on to their retail value. Go to ebay and check it out. If you want the reg. edition, you could probably get it when they come out for a little over 200 bucks. There is a regular Leia up RIGHT NOW that has an hour to go, and it's only up to 92.00 dollars.

02-13-2007, 10:20 PM
I don't know why but I prefer to get the exclusives. I actually like the models that have come with some of them even though they have really done nothing particular to the actual display of the statue. My favorite however has actually been the Grevious cape - it just adds so much to the statue itself. Just my opinion though - best to save the money if the exclusives do nothing for you. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

02-13-2007, 10:40 PM
Oh yeah, don't get me wrong. I have all the exclusives except for Han and Luke. It's just for people who either missed out or don't have the money, you can get the regular versions for significantly cheeper on the secondary market. Just something to think about.

I just cancelled my exclusive and picked a regular edition from one of our friendly e-tailers. I saved a decent amount, plus I didn't really care for the Probe Droid. I already have the 1/6 Probe Droids. I mean... how many Probe Droids should one man really have anyway?

Anyway, I didn't care for it, so now it is back on the market for someone who does.

swabie2424
02-14-2007, 01:32 AM
Yeah... if people don't care for the exclusive then order from an e-tailer and save some $$$$.

One thing to keep in mind... Sideshow does offer rewards points now, and I think with the non-exclusive you will get a bit shy of $14 worth of Sideshow rewards.... so basically it is $265 through Sideshow in the long run.

I think Maul needs more attitude in the pose -- it looks too "staged" and not like he's in action or in the middle of...the only extreme movement is the wrist...
Look at the Koto -- nice characteristic pose
the unleashed -- Perfect dynamic - martial
even the 15" applause mega looks good
and of course the epic force is nice...

maybe they shoulda picked that "I'm gonna kick yo A.." pose when he encounters the Jedi at Theed.
