SDCC 2007: Sideshow (Booth #1929)
Sideshow Collectibles really got the ball rolling by showing off a few of their upcoming 1/6 scale Star Wars figures: Bespin Luke Skywalker and Padme Amidala - Ilum (the winner of the Extended Universe poll). Also displayed from the Star Wars license were the Wicket and C3-PO VCD figures (produced by Medicom).
Medicom is also expanding their Disney Vinyl Collectible Doll collection with the following characters: Tigger, Tinker Bell, Belle (Beauty and the Beast), Ariel (The Little Mermaid) and the Guitar Mickey.
Not on display, but announced from Sideshow are the 1/6 scale Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee from The Lord of the Rings license. And the company announced that it has acquired a few new licenses. Of significance are Indiana Jones and The Godfather. Both will include 12" tall figure lines. I know it was you Fredo. You broke my heart!
