I only have the Mythos Boba, but what a nice statue!

Planning to get this bad boy and Ventress, but afraid of the pricing!

At the time i bought Boba for 300€, but the Sideshow pricing skyrocked, so i guess,
600-800€ would be realistic, and that would be far too expensive for me atm...

Looks pretty *****in ! I’ve been waiting for them to restart this line of statues. Knew it had to be coming when they announced that Obi 1/6 scale Mythos figure. Glad Disney finally allowed it to continue. I’ve got the Obi Wan and Vader versions , and hope to be adding all of the new Mythos releases to go with them !

I wanted this since the original line came out.
now Greivous would be a great 3rd.

Looks amazing! Not 100% sold on the mixed media as I’d prefer a fully sculpted robe but it admittedly looks good. Despite that area of concern I’m fairly certain this’ll make it's way into my collection.

I'm not sure it is mixed media, hard to tell from the image but following suit with the other mythos it shouldn't be.

Look closely (zoom in) and you’ll see that the outer robe is fabric. You can even see the stitching. I suppose it could change, but I wouldn’t expect it to.

Pretty fantastic.

We'd be talking about this more if Ventress didn't come out so stunningly.

I think I'll hold off for now and see what else the line or whatever 1/4's are teased in the future.

If I had Mythos Vader, I'd get this immediately though..

Wasn’t a fan of Mythos Vader’s paint app, or concept for that matter, so the fact that this piece compliments that one is completely lost on me.

Lots of areas of concern for me on this piece now that it’s fully revealed. Fabric robe seems to contrast greatly with sculpted robe, pose is unnaturally stiff, feet hanging out of his robe and floating concept could’ve been executed better based on what I’m seeing here.

Unlike Ventress this will be a wait and see release for me.

Looks good but I'm not crazy about the floating thing. Just looks strange to me.

I’ll still pick this up. Love the portrait, the pose, not sure about fabric cloak and the base. Would have preferred polystone/PVC and a starship or building pattern.

Looks like this is delayed. Got an email from Sideshow today and is now expected January - March 2021

Yeah, this one's a puzzler. It's my fav character, but I didn't pre-order it last year due to all the reasons everyone's brought up. And for $600, just wasn't feelin' it at the time. Maybe if it's around for awhile and ever comes up w/a discount of some sorts I may be tempted by the Darkside again...

Just got my notice that I’ll be charged for shipping on Friday.
Asajj and Maul will be at my place Thursday and Monday then Sidious right after. Insane.

Pics of all 3!
Definitely, I'll be able to take pics of Maul and Asajj this week but may be away when Sidious comes in. Either way I'll post some. Being in Canada, all 3 shipping at the same time plus customs is an expensive venture in itself.

Isn't this exactly what I said was going to happen? Surprisingly despite that I preordered the all the first day they were up none of mine have shipped yet. I guess because I have flex pay? I still waiting to hear when any of them are going to ship

I initially started with flex pay, made one payment on each then paid balance. Not sure why you haven't gotten any shipping notice. Literally I have all 3 coming and it's costing me 300 in shipping and customs.
I'm keeping Obi on flex but will pay in full in the next month or too. It doesn't really make sense seeing as if you do put pay in full it doesn't charge you till the item arrives whereas if you pay flex generally your flex payments are done way before the statue ships.

They always hold off the last flex payment and shipping charge till the statue is ready to ship. Well it seems all three of these statues are ready to ship and all three are sitting on the last payment + shipping for me yet none of them have shipped yet. Not even an email that item is ready to ship giving me the option to make the final payment. Shockingly, this has happened before where a piece was available sooner than anticipated and I was give the option to pay it off or wait.

Just got shipping notice on mine, this is the only one of the new Mythos I ordered, I have all of the older ones except the Gamorrean Guard. Personally, I like the cloth cloak on it, I think he looks great. But will see when I get him in hand.

No. 225 arrived today! Here are some pictures. It looks pretty good in hand. I don't mind the fabric robe either. Face sculpt looks pretty good, looks better on some angles than others. Overall i'm happy with this one, pretty close to the initial pictures released by sideshow.

Yeah i thought the robe would be a bit wierd but it goes with the statue and has wire to help pose it. Strange for a mythos piece but it works for this one.

Does the hood have a wire running around the edge as well? It looks all ballooned out like the Hasbro 12" figure...

Yeah mate it does. You can put the balooning down to my inability to pose things well.. haha

Got my Sidious Mythos today and I must say I am pretty happy with how he turned out. He looks good next to my Vader Mythos!!
