Ralph McQuarrie concepts and more debuted at Star Wars Collectibles panel SDCC 2014
Sideshow’s Art Director, David Igo, and Production Managers, Matt Bischof and Mike Tolentino revealed new product development insights and exclusive previews from our upcoming Star Wars collections at the Star Wars Collectibles panel. Check out our slideshow below to see what was presented!
After the presentation there was a raffle giveaway where three lucky attendees won Star Wars Sixth Scale Figures, and fans lined up for a short Q&A:
Q: Have you given any thought to a bounty hunters collection?
A: We’re definitely huge fans of the bounty hunters and they have come up in discussion plenty of times. In sixth scale we’ve done Boba Fett, Bossk and IG-88 so far. The C-3PO body definitely lend itself to another bounty hunter… We would love to complete the set at some point.
As far as the statues go, we have Boba Fett coming soon, as revealed earlier during the show. At the drawing board, I’d love to attempt an IG-88 with a cool dynamic pose.
Q: Loved the Ralph McQuarrie reveals. You mentioned there is a similarity to the Star Wars Mythos collection, are you guys ever going to go back and do any more Mythos?
A: We would definitely love to at some point! Our team has actually done quite a few designs that we are excited about, but we want to hold off showing them until the plans are more finalized. If and when the announcement does come, we also want to make sure we have a good lineup to get everyone excited about the continuation of the series.
Q: This question is for all of the studios; Have any of you been given any of the images or designs from the upcoming film, Star Wars: Episode VII? (crowd goes wild) Grunt once for yes?
A: (All) Sorry, we can neither confirm nor deny!
