Sideshows marketing strategy has successfully broke down my Sith focus. Whilst waiting on them to produce 1:6 scale Count Dooku, i caved in and got myself some Clones.
I couldnt resist any longer their just too cool.
Gonna "try" and stick to the onscreen Clone Commanders with the exception of 501st clone(had to didnt i, it's Vader related) and Boba Fett.
Waiting on Neyo to complete the Commanders....
They all look great, I especially like the Marmit Sandtroopers..., did you get them when they were originally made or after market i.e. ebay??? I am just wondering as I haven't found many Marmit figures around & know from Sergiu that the company went bust.
& with regards to clones, technically speaking Captain Rex falls into the Vader category doesn't he??? He is Anakin's right hand man in the Clone Wars after all.
Thanks for the compliments. The Marmits were bought on eBay around the time they were available to buy in shops.
The orange one was mint in box, and the white one came loose fully assembled. The Marmits are fragile and not as articulated as SSC or HT, but i think their overall appearance visually is far better than Sideshows (imo).
Sideshows Sandtroopers are highly detailed...the pauldrons look amazing as do the weapons/armour...but the deal breaker for me is the awful helmets, theres just something off about them compared to Marmits or Gentle Giants sculpt.
As for Rex, i think the Clone Wars are really cool, but i like to try n stick to the film saga characters:\
Thought I'd dig Vader out his cardboard coffin for some fresh photos with the Marmit sandies.
I'm using a Hasbro dome on Vaders helmet, i didn't like the SSC dome it seemed kinda small...i also prefer the shoulder armour over the robes...so being accurate to ANH specifically isn't important to me.
I've no space at all at the moment Kevin. Im hoping to move house in the near future and maybe gain a quiet corner somewhere away from the kids
