I know delays are common and expected nowadays but can you tell us the reason the Batman PF keeps getting delayed (9 months and counting).- (ie. something needed to be fixed)

Thanks

Great questions thus far but I don't have many answers to give unfortunately (please see my original post in this thread to get more info on questions that may never get an actual answer)...

The Joe Statue PF and disney line are not dead but have quieted down for now. We'll keep people updated if/when news for either line is available.

tnx ^_~
See my answer above in regards to the disney question.

Gaming - Nathan Drake Sixth Scale from Uncharted 3 (also seen at Comic-Con) and the Kerrigan Statue from Starcraft II coming down the pipeline too! I don't have any other info to share regarding gaming items beyond those at the moment.

Those would be PF heads for the Hulks!

Doom PF - sorry, but I have no news about the arrival of Victor von Doom for Pre-Order.

Sorry, but this is another license that I have no news to share about right now.

Thnx
This is another line that has quieted down for now but not an abandoned line.

With this in mind.. Alex, do you know if the alien big chap lsb's teeth are being altered at all? The piece is pretty spectacular but the one piece top and bottom blunt teeth ruin it somewhat overall, they also need chroming for sure. The warriors teeth are spot on which seems strange. I love it anyway but that final touch would complete it nicely after all of the hard work that must have gone into sculpting it.

Many thanks.

In fairness there is also this picture that suggests the teeth altered between suits, but whichever one you go with they aren't quite there yet.
The last update I had about this piece was that the teeth were not going to be chromed on the Big Chap. Now that could change. If it does that will be reflected most likely on the product page for the piece once it's available for Pre-Order OR would be announced prior to the item shipping to customers.

The weight of Doom is going to roughly end up weighing around the same as the Wolverine LSF (which is 40 lbs). Prototypes (at times) can sometimes weigh less than the final product, so once we have a final production piece the sell page for the item will be updated accordingly with final dimensions.

Sorry, I have no news to give about licenses we do not have and whether we will be acquiring them.

so my question is..
what was the true story behind the missing saber hilt to the Kenobi Mythos statue? was it a decision by SS to not even have it made after advertising it on your website? or was it a factory error and that they didn't even make it. or worse they lost the original model before they could even mold it to produce the saber hilts for the statues?
reason why im asking is becasue a lot of people are thinking SS omitted them deliberately to save on costs. and in return didn't care about their customers and what they were expecting. and was accused of false advertising in a way to produce more sales. but i tend to believe (as some others do as well) it was a mistake of the factories and that they either forgot to make them or couldn't becasue the hilt was either not sent to them or that they lost the hilt prior to making the molds.
can you give any clarification on this?
Apologies but am not privy to information about the production of many pieces, so I really don't know why the saber for the Ben Kenobi Mythos Statue was omitted in the final run.

This is another project that I have no additional information to share on. I believe a new Vader was confirmed as being in the works but I don't foresee any updates showing up before the end of the year...but ya never know.

Sorry, but I don't have information to share about future products. Given the popularity of Bane I can only imagine he would be represented in the future but I cannot confirm nor deny that one is actually in the works/coming.

The #1 reason items get delayed is simply due to the fact that we want to ensure the best possible piece is being produced for fans of <insert name of collectible here>. So if more time is needed to make sure <insert name of collectible here> hits amazing status in production then that is what will happen. Another reason for delay could be the addition of a previously unannounced feature for a piece (such as a light-up feature) and getting that onto the piece.

As for Batman I know that one has been the case of wanting to ensure the caped crusader is just plain amazing looking, so in order to achieve that more time has been set aside.

Have you every thought of contacting Wizards of the Coast/Hasbro to get licensing for Magic the Gathering characters? I know you can make a crapload of money with that brand alone.

Thank you for taking your time with us, SSAlex! Really appreciate!

Do you happen to know any Thanos projects that are in the works at the Sideshow Studio? I'd buy a Premium Format figure or a Comiquette of Thanos any day! Thank you.
