Hi Sideshow! Now that Hot Toys is going quarter scale with articulation, and Enterbay has done this with the T-800, are you going to revamp or start a new line of quarter scales with articulation too? Since you distribute for Hot Toys, is this considered a conflict of interest? Thanks!Saturday, April 7, 2012
We’re always happy to have a little friendly competition, and believe us, it’s very friendly when it comes to Hot Toys. We are devoting more research & development resources to articulation studies in 1:4 scale. Not in response to the trend, but because it’s something that we began years ago (Endoskeleton, Boba Fett, etc), and we enjoy the opportunity to apply articulation where it makes sense. If collectors want to see more articulation, rest assured, we’re ready to deliver. The fun thing with Premium Format is it’s a flexible brand that allows us to create some very exciting hybrid options.
- PREV: G’day guys! During the last few years many collectors have been asking about the status of a new 1:6th female body to accompany the new male body in wide use. Where are you up to on this issue so that we can hope to see many of the female characters from the Star Wars/Indiana Jones licenses rounded out? Can you tease us with any hints of which gals will be given the Sideshow treatment in 2012? Thanks!
- NEXT: Why such a focus on Premium Formats lately? Joker, Deadpool, and looks like Batman too. Why no comiquette love for marquee characters?
