This piece is highly amazing. Just look at the detail presented in it. It's truely remarkable for sure. It's a shame my wallet can't afford it, but if it could I would preorder this bad boy in a heartbeat....

Serious? Man I must be one of the few people who think this piece is more an epic win!
I'm right there with you! I ordered this as soon as it went up. A lot of people hate the Ewoks because of their "cuddly" appearance and this just screams ferociousness to me. If ROTJ was made in 2010, CGI would've made them look this this. I can't wait to add this into my collection.

Ordered the first day. I never had a problem with Ewoks - I actually have a couple of custom life size ones

I ordered it also. This will be my first dio but there's just something that draws me to it.

I'm on the fence about this one.....

Looks good, price is not that high and the ES of 750 sounds about right but damn that poor stormie is beaten up pretty bad by those Ewoks bastids!

Re: Fall Of the Empire dio

Cancelled mine awhile ago. I dig it, but doesn't really blend well with my existing collection.

Taking and posting pics tonight!!!! Trust me, this one is a home run... and it's exactly 1/6 scale so it blends nicely with GG mini busts... can't wait to get Wicket to display with it! the detail is amazing... down to the glaze on the slightly yellowed Ewok teeth!!!

not my cup of tea, but no denying SS did an amazing job on this one.

Re: Fall Of the Empire dio

Curious, is this in the same scale as Duel of the Fates, Diplomatic Mission etc?

my understanding is that it's larger.

Re: Fall Of the Empire dio

From what I read on SSF, the dio is closer to 1:6 scale. And the Stormtrooper seems to be more accurate than the SS 1:6 figure...

I don't mind that it is larger. I see it as a stand alone piece. I don't think it would fit well with the other "versus" dios.

Re: Fall Of the Empire dio

Looks awesome!

If it was a Scout Trooper I'd already have it.


I NEED a ROTJ diorama in my collection. I hope the line doesn't die, at least until they do one that I MUST have. I'm thinking something with a Scout Trooper, Chewie or the Emperor would do. But this dio is a great piece too, congrats to everyone you got one.

This is a great piece but price and size mean I'll probably opt for the GG maquette version, as the Yoda PF and the 'Diplomatic mission' dio's are the two big price items next on my wish list!

I'm liking the Premium Format statues more & more..., I'm actually thinking of buying the bigger scale items from now on & scrubbing the 1:6 scale figures (from Sideshow)..., I have Captain Rex on pre-order & I've been pondering getting the clone trooper & Darth Maul with the mechanical legs..., I think it'd go well with the Mythos Darth Maul (still thinking about it though). :)

Sideshow's PF line is truly stunning, absolute quality, I never intended to buy any as they are so big, but I found myself sucked in lol, now I'm awaiting the Jango and Hoth Han PF's. :D

I'm hoping the Jango Fett PF statue has a good pose..., I'll probably end up buying it as the character goes with my trooper focus seeing as he is the source of all clones. :) The 2 PF statues I'm DEFINITELY buying when they become available are Darth Malgus & Shaak Ti, having seen them displayed at SDCC I was very impressed by them & I think the detailing on both statues is superb!!! :)
