I love 1/6 scale dioramas, and I plan to add some to my collection at some point. This one looks great with Indy!

Nice. All along I thought that looked more like an Indy diorama than a Joe one.

I like the dioramas just seem expensive though. I want the Cobra throne.

The throne is definitely the best Joe environment to date, but the ninja temple may trump that. I would like to see dioramas based on some of the classic vehicles, like a damaged MOBAT or part of the Terror Drome.

That would be awesome. Tomax & Xamot with Terror Drome Enviroment.

My Hot Toys Captain America arrived today, and unfortunately, there are quite a few QC issues with the belt/holster, so I need to contact Sideshow about a replacement. :verymad:

Other than the defects, I love this figure!

I'm sure Sideshow will make it good, it is just frustrating. I had to contact them about GI Joe Hawk and Viper too. Hawk's exclusive head was missing the inner ring to allow it to attach to the neck. The Viper's Magpul rifle broke right out of the box.

I have the exact same problem. I had another problem with the gun holster, but didn't bother trying to get a replacement. Just a cheaply made belt.

Another addition to the collection today, IG-88! The Star Wars bounty hunters are infamous for having some of the shortest screen time in the original trilogy, but are classic designs. I stopped collecting the Sideshow Star Wars stuff a few years ago, and sold all of my collection off, but always knew the bounty hunters would have to be in my collection if they were ever released. IG-88 was the first, Boba Fett is sometime in April/May, and Bossk will be announced soon. No word on Dengar, Zuckuss, or 4-LOM.
Quick trivia, back when Kenner originally released the figures, they mislabeled 4-LOM (droid) and Zuckuss (alien).

Awesome! I stopped collecting Star Wars stuff 10 years ago, but I almost pulled the trigger on this one and Fett.

How's the articulation on him? Better or as good as the Vintage line?

No, he's right -- not making that one character doomed the line. Doomed, I tell you. The minute we left him out of Series 1 a raven flew through our window. And killed an intern.

Defintely better than the Hasbro one, check out this video Sideshow posted, around the 45 second mark.

I am having a problem with the left arm elbow not 'clicking' into place the way the right arm does, so he can't hold the rifle straight out. Seriously, this may be the 4th product in a row I need to contact Sideshow about for a replacement.... <_<

Yeah. I don't think I ever contacted Sideshow about a replacement until the Spidey Comiquette. Now it seems like every other item I get requires an e-mail. And it doesn't matter if it's HT or Sideshow. I need to send one about Terminator shortly. I got Classic Pred and DX Sparrow from BBTS yesterday, and thankfully, no noticeable issues.

Part of me feels bad contacting them for replacements, but then I remind myself that Sideshow/Hot Toys have priced themselves into this situation.

When these things were in the $50-$75 price range, it was easier to overlook some of the smaller defects, but with the current prices I feel like the smallest defect is worth a replacement. :sad:

Exactly my POV. If I'm shelling out $200, $300, $400 for a toy or statue, I'm not inclined to accept broken joints, wonky paint jobs, ripped rubber, etc.

I've started working on my first custom 1/6 figure, and I am having a blast so far. This will be a combination of existing 1/6 parts, iron-on transfers, and some sewing.

Here's a sneak preview! :thumbsup:

Nice choice of body too, imagine it will turn out great.


Are you gonna go straight classic or make it "fit" the rest of Hot Toys' Marvelites?
