From The Mouth Of The Creators:
Heath Hammond, Sideshow Collectibles' 3D Creative Manager:
RS: What was your part in creating this figure?
HH: Costume design (scaling the costume, choosing the fabrics, coordinating the construction of the garments), portrait painting, and the overall coordination of the figure- from design to production.
RS: When sourcing fabric for a figure with as intricate of a costume as the Anakin figure, what factors weigh heaviest?
HH: Silhouette. That is the biggest factor. With any figure, in any scale!
With Anakin’s costume, the tunic was the most trouble. Getting the color right, the correct weight in scale, and the right draping in the sleeves. Trying to find fabric that does all that was the most difficult. But in the end we found some great stuff that hit all the marks!
RS: Once all the fabrics are sourced locally, do you ship it to China?
HH: Yes. We send swatches to be sourced in China. This is the biggest gamble…LOL!
Because we might find the prefect fabric here in the US, in China they might not be able to find it at all. So the process starts all over again.
RS: With other companies' attempts at 12" Star Wars figures, we've only seen molded plastic belts. What made SSC decide to go in the faux leather direction?
HH: We have always been using either REAL leather or faux leather for our 12” lines. For the Star Wars line we decided to push the envelope a little further and use higher quality leather. When leather belts are done with consideration, it always improves a figure's look.
RS: Another thing that seems to be exclusive to the SSC figures are the sewn-in socks. How did that design element come about?
HH: Aaaah…socks. That’s a secret! LOL!
RS: Beyond the faux leather jerkin that seems to have been improved from the initial images of this figure, what else saw some serious time being retooled since the prototype was previewed?
HH: You know, this figure came together without any troubles.
The jerkin (Tunic Sash) changed in the sourcing process. We all feel the material on the final production piece looks great! Paint (Deco) is the biggest problem we have. We are very strong about keeping the deco as close to our prototype as possible.
RS: While watching ROTS, it would appear that Anakin had his sleeve tucked into his gauntlet throughout the entire film, and while the look can easily be replicated on the production figure, what factored into making the sleeve full sized?
HH: His robotic arm. The sleeve needed to fall naturally over his robotic arm.
RS: What, if any, artistic licenses were taken on the Anakin's costume design?
HH: None. We worked from production images, and costume design drawings. Only the color varied from the original costume.
RS: If you had more time or a DeLorean, would you change anything on this figure?
HH: Yeah. The deco on the lips! I don’t know why they can’t get the lip color right.
RS: Beside the Anakin figure, which has been your biggest challenge thus far?
HH: You know making the **** ****** figure really gave us a hard time. Oh Yeah, and the helmet was really a challenge!
