Sideshow Darth Talon Statue 1/4 Scale Exclusive Edition
« on: July 19, 2015, 09:11:32 PM »
I've been interested in getting this particular statue for several years. I bid on several auctions, but I never won. I finally decided to just "go for it" and saved up quite a bid of $$ and found one that I liked. It was listed as NEW, but I could tell that it had been opened once.   :( 
She's in great condition, and the lightsaber still works. It does not show in these pics, as the overhead lights were too bright. I's also old tech. I think it's just a 3mm led. Too bad it's non upgradeable.

This is the Exclusive edition and it came with a cloth cloak. I prefer to display her with it on.
PICS! (they are clicky)

Awsome Jango.
I have been trying to get this and the GG version of her for a while now too but, the prices are just a joke. It seems the less well known a character is the more you pay.
I grabbed a savage oppress  last month and this month managed to get the queen of the dead from sideshows court of the dead. Both are awsome.

What production number did you get?
I don't know, i gotta bad feeling about this!

161/650

I tried to like the GG version, but the "crazyeyes" just put me off.

LOL thats the sith stare of " I told you if i catch you looking at my butt again I'm gonna squeeze your nuts off "

I think the GG has a better pose. And the 2 statues show the calmer and more aggressive side to her.

Nice score Jango, this is a beautiful statue.  I actually prefer the old led tech compared to the new tech as its I've had several fail.  Far too fragile.

Very nice purchase! Another great hobby to get into but expensive one at that.

Funny you should post this since I was on the Sideshow site yesterday perusing their items and made my first purchase..... we'll pre-ordered to be more exact. Now the waiting part comes...

She a beauty for sure. If she was poseable my head would explode:)

Great buy seen her a few times. I love to own one. I don't think someone would allow it.

I like both.

I have both the GG and SS versions (although not the Exclusive one).
I was lucky with the GG one, as I found it for under $200 back in 2013 in Japan. The SS one I paid $1350, and it hurt to do so, but I had been looking at it for over 2 years, hoping for a better price (in at least a near perfect condition), to no avail.

The only reason I opted (price-wise) is because I seemed to have no problem dropping $1500 on a lightsaber hilt after only seeing pictures a few times, but couldnt fathom paying the same on a statue I had been pining over for more than 2 years? I finally broke down and bought her.  Now her, along with the Shaak Ti and Aayla statues, they are not going anywhere....  :)
