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!
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.
If you would like to submit a question using the form, please remember that Ask Sideshow should NOT be used as a way to solicit for a job, contact Customer Service, ask about a shipping date, or register a complaint. Most of those questions, comments, and solicitations can be most efficiently sent to us by filling out our online Customer Service Request Form.
Also, a fair warning: Questions that ask, “Will you be doing/Why don’t you do [insert license or character name]?” may never be answered. We’re happy to drop hints when we can, but we sometimes cannot answer direct questions about what we’re planning in the future for a variety of reasons, which include (but are not limited to) licensing, production, artistic contracts, and ever-changing schedules and projected release dates. Please feel free to use the form for all these sorts of questions or quasi-suggestions, but PLEASE don’t take offense if when we don’t answer to your full satisfaction… or don’t answer at all – it’s not personal, we promise!
