Hi All! Sorry for me being sparse but likely this will continue to be par for the course from now on. My time is incredibly limited between work and personal life, so I will pop in when I can to answer questions but there could be weeks if not over a month between me being able to tackle them. So very sorry I'm not able to spend as much time with y'all but I will answer when there's moments to do so!

Any idea when that will be done (it's only a bit of text update ).


.
The product summary and materials section on the product page for the Wolf Predator breaks down the materials it is comprised of (PVC, Resin, and Vinyl).

Always a possibility but I'm only aware of Oggy and Xiall at the moment for the line.

I don't have a materials breakdown (and materials can always change during the manufacturing process) but more than likely Magneto himself would be resin/polystone, fabric cape and a base a mix of resin/polystone and possibly thinner casted resin/polytone or PVC for parts that would break easily if casted in a harder material.

I'm sure we'll revisit those characters again but I don't know what the approach would be in regards to materials, sculpt, etc.

There are no plans currently. That could change of course but at this point in time...no plans.

Wasp is the last one I'm aware of. If there are more planned for the future I'm not in the know about it at this time.

Is it possible to get all the details concerning the list of materials used by Sideshow for all the statues before/as the preorder begins ? (which part is made of what ?)

Thank you for your answer and for your time
The Water element will be made out of a clearer resin material.

One of her legs (the one fully out of the water) is free floating while the other (in the water) is/will be pegged into the base.

As for lists of every little material a piece is comprised of...not something that will be implemented at this time BUT pieces comprised of larger amounts of PVC or vinyl will be called out accordingly once such information is known (if it's known after Pre-Order there will be updates made and sent to customers prior to the item shipping to them...such in the case of the recent Rey Premium Format Figure).

Jungle hunter is made up primarily of resin/polystone with some exceptions to pieces on it that are better suited to be casted in PVC or other types of plastic to prevent breakage (blades in his right hand weapon, dreads as such items not cast in resin/polystone).

Why can't we buy Sideshow Gift cards with our reward points??

Thanks
Rewards points aren't actually cash, so using them to purchase a gift card is not possible.

Hope ya got a glimpse of him in the Wolverine PF gallery that was released this week!

Pre-Order will occur sometime in early 2018.

It crossed my mind when the same band released a new video today, and it reminded me of Shard. Anyhow, just a thought!

Oooo....music of Court of the Dead with a story intertwined! Great idea! Some more atmospheric music had been commissioned for The Court of the Dead and used at a past SDCC within the display of pieces.

I'm only aware of more Alien items being in the pipeline at this point. What they are and what the scale will be is not known to me at this time.

Yes, there are restrictions on characters and it's a case by case basis and that's the latest information I have regarding that. I don't have a list of what those characters are as that lives within the realm of a team I'm not on and as such I'm not privy to that info.

Always a possibility that Sideshow will release a Thor Ragnarok collectible but I've not been made aware of one being in the works at this point.

I know there are folks around here that'd love a Doomsday in that scale but I really am not in the know as to whether one is or not. Sorry.

I cleaned up the battle damage but lately I have noticed that the statue seems to lean to the left when looking at it. I'm not sure if its always been that way and that's the design and pose of this statue but was worrying me so I removed the arms and head to reduce some weight. From the hipe there is a slight lean to the left? is this normal? if so Ill put everything back together but if not can I fix somehow? was thinking of putting a small spacer under his right foot to help level the hip joint? It does lean slightly slightly forward but from the pics of others I have seen this looks normal, but the left lean I wasn't sure?
Thanks so much
Steve


Oh no! Have you reached out to our Customer Service department yet? If not, please do so ASAP regarding this issue to see how they can help you!

Ok so the pieces for sure and not coming are....

Oh wait...I'd like to keep my job.

I'm not sure if Sideshow has ever pursued a license for WWF/WWE wrestlers but I know there are no plans at this time to acquire that license.

First. When can we expect the Hot Toys Justice League Superman to go up for pre-order?
Also. What are the chances of Sideshow coming out with a Justice League Superman premium format?

Thanks for all your answers and have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
Sorry but myself and Sideshow as a whole aren't privy to Hot Toys release schedule. We typically find out when one of their items are going to launch for Pre-Order right at the same time y'all do.

Right now there aren't any plans of ra Justice League Superman PF.

Not that I'm aware of. She's a great character though!

It would be nice to offer the PayPal option for their stuff as well especially since their prices are higher.

Thanks
I just checked a few Prime 1 In-Stock items through the Sideshow site and all had PayPal as a payment option. Were there In-Stock items in particular you were interested in in which you didn't have that option? If so, please pass those along and I can look into it further.

Sorry I'm getting to your question after the 25th of Nov. Please note that in the future any CS questions will be answered much quicker through them directly then here as my time is extremely limited when I can come here and take time to roll through questions. I'm also not directly on the Customer Service team and am not the best source for these kinds of questions. I can route questions to CS, get updates about inquiries already submitted to CS of course. Sorry again for just getting to this question now.

Hopefully you did contact them with your question and everything was sorted.

Thank you.

And I second this statement, and want to add; Why cant we use our points at any time, even after checking out on a pre order, since we're allowed to adjust our flexpay dates anyways? It would help to use when we want to use them on paying down a monthly payment, if we so choose to use them in that way. It all spends the same way and goes back to sideshow.
The potential of using reward points on wait list reservations that convert to live orders and on orders already placed are all possibilities in the future but it would be at least a year before anything like that would be in place as higher programming priorities are in the works now through 2018. Currently the system simply is not built to allow reward point application to wait list conversions, etc.

I think y'all say the explanation as to what was happening with that item. But quickly...

The piece shown was half prototype (Wolverine himself) and part early factory sample (base) and the two weren't meshing together properly, so the lease was occurring.

I think something got lost in translation somewhere - surprising given the backlash this LSB received when it turned up 90%+ plastic/vinyl

It hasn't been made clear yet so I guess it's not going to be changed - never mind.

I want to know why Sideshow tried deceiving Wolverine PF buyers buy propping up statue in a photo shoot and then blacking background to give impression of slight upward look. I like forward lunge fierce pose but what worrys me is what am I actually buying ?

It's poor judgment by Sideshow you really need to deliver what fans want. No BS this move was total BS. I preordered this it better be worth my time and money or I'm done with Sideshow!

Plus, Disney has always had their own odd agenda. They outright own Star Wars, yet Sideshow is still barred from releasing a lot of characters. I doubt X-Men and Fantastic Four will be treated any differently.
