Is it possible to start making name plates for the base of Star Wars Premium Formats, like you do with the LotR Premium Formats? I was pretty excited about the Aayla Secura until I saw the bland base it stands on. The bases for the LotR are on a whole different level and I think the other franchises would benefit from this.

You wouldn’t believe the internal arguments about name plates. While we agree that they can look really classy, as in the case of The Lord of the Rings line, they can also start to feel redundant.
It usually comes down to design. If it can be incorporated in a subtle, complementary way, then yay! Otherwise we feel it’s best left as something removable, if it’s included at all. But in the end we felt Aayla’s base, and the rest of the Star Wars Premium Format base designs, didn’t really lend themselves to name plates.
- PREV: I absolutely love the G.I. Joe line. You’ve brought back the excitement I experienced as a kid collecting these incredible figures. One of my favorites as a kid was Cobra Commander in his battle armor, such as that worn on the cover of A Real American Hero #58. (Not just the helmeted version, but the full armor version w/ an entirely different outfit.) Is there any chance Sideshow will ever produce a version of this figure? Understandably the cost would be higher due to the armor, but I, for one, would be all in. Please consider this figure, if you haven’t already. You’ve nailed every figure you’ve done so far, & I’d love to own a sixth scale version of my favorite rendition of Cobra Commander!
- NEXT: I have heard that there will be a Premium Format Batman coming out and I wanted to know a release date. Also, who’s art will it be based on (Simon Bisley, Jim Lee, or Joe Mad)? Looking forward to your response, thanks!
