SDCC 2011: Sideshow Collectibles’ Legendary Scale Statues

Sideshow does most of their figures in 1/4 scale, but they unveiled a whole new line of huge figures at SDCC. They’re entitled “legendary scale” but they’re about 1/3. Additions to the line so far include Iron Man, Wolverine, Wolf Predator, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Maul, Neytiri, and the Terminator. Because of their large scale and the attention to detail, these will cost a pretty penny-$1,600 each!

While I really love the idea of this line and the sculpts all look great, I have one issue with it–Neytiri isn’t 1/3 scale! Since she is about 9 feet tall in “real life,” a true 1/3 scale figure would be 36 inches. Since the figures in the line seem to be about 2 feet tall, maybe smaller, that puts Neytiri at about 1/5 scale! Then again, having a 3 foot tall sculpture would be a little extreme.
