I won't judge it without seeing the full thing, but I'll say that the idea of a PF Anakin isn't necessarily at the top of my list. However, "disappointement" would be a strong term...it's not like I lack for things to spend my money on or to try to find room to display, and I certainly don't need to be a completionist on the PFs (or any other high-end line).

If it has Sith eyes it sure the heck better be called Darth Vader. LFL needs to start enforcing the point that Vader was Vader the second he was named Darth Vader and not let companies with the license to call collectibles "Anakin" if it is meant to represent the character after the point of him giving himself to the dark side.

After looking at the preview image again I noticed a couple inaccuracies. The robe appears to have a crinkled texture, only the tunic is supposed to have that texture, the robe is made from a smoother wool. Also, the leather tabards appear to be top stitched which really detracts from the look. I hope Sideshow addresses these issues before production.

CaptainCargo
12-21-2007, 06:48 AM
Considering how few of these come out...I'd have to say that I'm dissapointed. I'd rather continue flushing out the OT

Nonetheless, I'm sure its going to be a very nice piece!

Not disappointed, but not super excited either. They haven't quite nailed the human likenesses on the PFs yet.

I could see the exclusive having a seperated head with sith eyes. You could just interchange them like on the PF Captain America. I just don't see them making two human Anakin/Vader PFs. The interchangable head takes care of that.

i would ahve thought that his robe could have been an exclusive like the grievous cape, but it looks like he has it on in the teaser pic.

i hope there is a companinon PF for this. they could make a 501st clone, but then you would have to buy two of them (one for each side) http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif. i wouldnt mind a padme PF but im sure she wouldnt be a popular pick. I guess OWK makes the most sence. maybe palp if they do go with the sith eyes

Most certainly - it just seems to get too absurd sometimes... but you are absolutely right! I have seen it many, many times... in fact, every time SSC or GG releases a new offering we run the cycle. This time it was almost a parody of what usually happens, I mean we saw what amounts to a thumbnail size preview of his hand...

Are there many Anakin fans out there? For 1/6 scale I get him because he can fit in the greater context of my collection, but PFs seems like individual character focuses and I just think the Hayden version of Anakin is giant a tool and I wouldn't want anything so expensive and big of that character.

Thats just me.

Skullsplitter
12-21-2007, 03:15 PM
I wouldn't say I'm disappointed but it's not something that I'll be adding to my collection. I'm personally more into the OT with a few exceptions. That said, just because it's not on top of my wants list doesn't mean I'm disappointed. They have to spread things out so not to alienate anyone. I'm sure it'll be a great piece anyway.

ProgMatinee
12-21-2007, 03:33 PM

Not Hayden himself, the AOTC and ROTS versions of Anakin is a tool.

I don't really consider him a tragic figure as much as I think of him as a totally spoiled, arrogant, mean, jerkwad. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

I like villians, but I like them to be villians all the way not someone we're supposed to feel confused about and feel sad for. Then add onto that the whole oddly feeling Padme/Anakin love story and it just makes me uninterested in him.

I guess he's just a character too much in flux where I like him as the villian or as the good guy, but all the scenes with him unsure (Tusken Raider murders, Dooku murder, etc) just don't make me want to buy an expensive item of him.

I dunno about anyone else, Prog, but I seem to look at Anakin as how he was intended, and not as he was executed on film. I think that is what is great about the figure, or statue in this case. It doesn't act, talk or anything. It is just a representation of Anakin, and how Anakin is/was/supposed to be in my mind. I think that is why this is more enjoyable to me. He can be a darker, colder, and more calculating person than was shown on screen. That is why I like this offering - it is almost like giving the character a clean slate! Why let perceived bad scripting/acting/directing of the character ruin a perfectly good statue?

And for the record, I was fine with Anakin on screen... I got what they were trying to convey.

Anyone who knows me or has read my posts knows I am the last one to complain about anything minor like a collectible. That being said, I have researched Anakin's ROTS costume a great deal and these faults would ruin it for me and anyone else who even superficially recognizes the costume. I've been waiting for this piece for a long time and I want it to be the best that it can be.

NONE of the Jedi in the films have a crinkled-textured robe and even the 1/6 Anakin's robe is done correctly. The top-stitching on the tabards I can overlook but the robe issue is just confusing to me. I've seen all of their previous PFs in person and all of them looked great, that's why I was taken aback but the noticeably lesser quality of this one (and yes, even just by this preview image).

Here's a brighter version for those who care:

I love Anakin, but I understand and accept that some people did not care for his story arc in the prequels. But this vibe about him not being a good choice for a PF I cannot understand. Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader is THE central character of the saga. Luke may be the hero of the OT, but he already has two PF's. There is no reason why the central character of the PT should not get a great interpretation like this. I mean yeah, Maul looks cooler, but Anakin is way more important and deserving to get a center piece like this.

Hahaha. Thanks ambasah. You rock.

I'm looking forward to both PT and OT characters, and think the line is going to survive best if it's a mix of the two with a little heavier dosage on the OT. I was actually crossing my fingers that the next one would be Qui-Gon or Lando but I was looking forward to eventually seeing a ROTS Anakin.

I gotta say, as someone who isn't exactly super-excited about an Anakin in this line, that I'd actually be delighted to have them not always cater to the "most demanded" characters at any given time. I've grown weary of lines that always hit the usual suspects first and only start to do some of the secondary characters at the end (and then usually get cancelled because of low sales). Granted, Anakin doesn't really fit in that category, but if it's a sign that they're going to mix things up between more "popular" choices and solid-if-less-popular ones, then I'm for it, even if it means I have to wait a bit longer between must-buys on occasion.

No no no, that's not really what I meant. What I was getting at is that Anakin, or perhaps more accurately Hayden, brings some baggage with him that automatically makes him a second-tier character among some fans (particularly those who prefer the OT). I wasn't trying to claim that he's somehow an unimportant character, nor that he wouldn't be in demand. My point was more that if this PF line were *strictly* a popularity contest, we'd probably see things like a Stormtrooper long before a PT-era Anakin, and I'm glad to see once again that the PF line isn't run as such a contest.

Hope I made more sense that time.

BTW i absoulutly love the pose http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif



The Sith head is the exclusive and I would say a MUST have if you like Anakin. The cancelation fees are only for flexpay.



thats what i thought
i didnt realized i had clicked on the flexpay one.

mine is ordered now http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

OK ... before I remove my rather sizeable foot from my mouth, let me preface it by saying that when I initially said this would be an "easy pass" for me, I was basing my decision on the character selection, not the limited picture of his hand that we were given. When I got the email tonight that announced the preorder, revealed more pictures of the piece, and (most importantly) showed that the exclusive would be an extra head with his Sith eyes, I simply had to preorder it. I'm not a huge fan of Anakin himself, but with that second head, he becomes Vader ... and THAT, well ... I must have it.
I can't wait to place this on the same shelf with the Premium Format Vader. It almost gives me chills just thinking about it.
So, I admit it ... I was wrong. You may all make fun of me now in any way that you see fit.

Oh, but it does. From the product description on Sideshow's site:

"The Anakin Skywalker Premium Format figure is a stunning 1:4 scale museum quality piece. The body and base of the figure is cast in high-quality, heavy-weight polystone, all hand-finished and hand-painted, and dressed in an expertly-tailored scale reproduction of the costume. The figure features an electronic light-up lightsaber effect, glowing bright blue, and each base is individually hand-numbered. Sure to be the premiere Anakin collectible, this figure is a worthy addition to any Star Wars collection!"

I have to give Sideshow a lot of credit with the poses they sculpt on their pf figures. They are very natural and true to the character.

I like Kotos and Unleased figures as much as the next guy, but many of the poses take quite a bit of artistic license.

These are sculpted in very comfortable poses, which imo adds to the authenticity.

I'm a fan of the "sith eyes Anakin" so I pre-ordered it. I like the pose and the sculpt but I think I may cancell. Lack of room and (as someone already said) the position of the saber will make this one difficult to house in a case.

What really would have been awesome is if they gave you two hands. One with the saber ignited and one without, OR make the saber blade removable.

Two heads - yes, that's how they'll do it. I have their Premium Angel (think Buffy) and he's got two heads, the regular moody one, and the "game face" one. The neck is part of the head sculpt, so the attachment is at the base of the neck. There must be a magnet in it as it pops in and grabs nicely. So as long as you're not displaying Anakin upside down, either head/neck should hold just fine.

Whining is a Skywalker family trait. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Anyway, I did pre-order this. Apart from the position of the lightsaber, there isn't much I can criticize about the piece.

I would have to definitely agree. This is Anakin how I would envision him.

Double the value? I don't think ANY of hte PF's have increased much in value over the MSRP. Actually, most of them have dropped, even exclusives.

I don't expect the exclusive Anakin jumping up in value very much at all. But I'm still getting him to go with all the rest. This is my favorite line of all.

I agree, this line is definately not for anyone looking to invest their money. You can get any PF (except the Han exclusive) for less than msrp these days - but I will still stick with ording directly from SS - their customer service is worth it to me.

slynger
01-21-2008, 02:50 PM
value? - as in dollars, maybe they won't go up now or even a year from now, but I know they are the centerpieces of my SW collection and there isn't a company out there that has anything that can compare to these beauties IMO anyway. Also, if Sideshow ever foregoes the SW license - well, we won't go there.

Sure it does:

The Anakin Skywalker Premium Format figure is a stunning 1:4 scale museum quality piece. The body and base of the figure is cast in high-quality, heavy-weight polystone, all hand-finished and hand-painted, and dressed in an expertly-tailored scale reproduction of the costume. The figure features an electronic light-up lightsaber effect, glowing bright blue, and each base is individually hand-numbered. Sure to be the premiere Anakin collectible, this figure is a worthy addition to any Star Wars collection!

slynger

thank you for the response, but I am aware that it lights up - I was just curious if it uses LED technology or the older light like Vader and Kenobi??

I suppose if it doesn't say LED then it probably isn't. Sideshow is usually pretty good about that type of info.

Yeah, the display options are what is primarily prompting my discomfort with this.
I have custom cases made for all my PF's and this one is going to cost more just because of that saber....and then it will also cost another few inches trying to place it next to other pieces...

I am right there with you, but I just cannot fit everything right now. Once we have our house (in a year), I will be able to get everything displayed properly. The PF line is spectacular, and I do not know why they aren't more popular. It is hard for me to decide which is the best. This Anakin looks phenomenal, but as for what I have in hand, I will go with Grievous. Here's hoping for many more to come!
