So the word is out now on 2 new additions to Medicom's Real Action Heroes collection. Distributed by Sideshow Collectibles comes Star Wars quirky pair, C3PO and R2-D2.
The figures are 1:6 scale and both feature full articulation and light up LED lights in both figures. Medicom isnt quite are top company of choice, but I have to admit that Im very impressed with these two. Their highly detailed and seem to be movie accurate. To my knowledge there isn't any other 1:6 C3PO and R2-D2 figures availible up to date so it would seem that these would be a great choice. One of the problems I have with these figures is the hefty pricetag that comes with them. I would say these are worth no more than $140 at the most, especially since R2 is below 6". Other than that, the figures are definitely long overdue in the Star Wars 1:6 collector's world. Check them out, they're availible for pre-order on Sideshow Collectibles website.
One of the reasons why Ive never really been impressed with Medicom's figures is they're not quite up to scale with other 1:6 scaled figures. Some are very drastic differences, and other's arent so bad. Its not a huge negative, but for most...our perfectionism will drive us crazy.
