I saw this today on BBTS, and I havn't seen any threads about it so I thought some collectors might be interested. It looks like they are re-releasing the Baroness Premium Format Figure (the 1/6 scale statue) with dark blue fabric instead of black, and a silver cobra emblem instead of red. If anybody is interested, Sideshow has it up on their site here:
i saw this a week or so ago...Honestly, I think it's kind of lame of SS. Just because it's blue, doesnt make the costume "classic version". Of course, it gives people a chance to get a Baroness who missed out the first go around...
THe hair being plastic doesn't appeal to me.. plus, I don't know, it just seems a little creepy. Of all the characters, The Baroness is the Premium figure? Why? Do her clothes come off or something? I really don't get it?
Why aren't there more Joes from the Deep South?
And would it kill Hasbro to give us a Marine Corps Officer?
enough with the premium format figures, just make the actual 1/6 figure already!!! They know that it won't be a hard sale for most die-hard fans but personally I just never saw any point in buying the premium format figs solely on the price and the fact that they are in one static pose for eternity. I like being in control of how I can pose a figure and make up my own story/background situations.
