Following an extensive interview with Sideshow Collectibles' Creative Director Tom Gilliland regarding the newly revealed Interpretative Maquettes concept (which I will transcribe and publish as soon as I can), there was a casual conversation on the topic of Boba Fett and IG-88 where he revealed that SSC will be handling these characters in a similar manner as their Jabba's Palace collection. If all goes as planned, collectors should expect to see all six bounty hunters released in a short period of time and they should be making space for an accompanying Polystone Executioner's Bridge diorama to display the set. In addition, it was also revealed that there is a fully fucntional prototype of the IG-88 figure and we should be seeing it some time soon. Eagle-eyed readers will spot it in the gallery attached to the Collectors' Panel story below.

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
