Hello Sideshow! I have a question about your Jack Sparrow Premium Format Production Peek posted March 23 2012. I would like to know if you used the same intrinsic resin as seen on the Legendary Scale Figure (Obi-Wan Kenobi) or the German Paratrooper PF? Thank you very much in advance!
Yes, we’re evaluating the intrinsic resin use for many upcoming projects. It will not be used for all characters, all the time… it will be used where it can really be best utilized to enhance a likeness. At this moment, it’s uncertain whether Jack will feature the intrinsic paint style or more traditional paintwork… we’ll be trying both to see which best fits the Cap’n. Now pass the rum.

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!
