Incoming: Sideshow 12″ Kit Fisto

1 09 2006

 

Jedi Master Kit Fisto has arrived! I had thought that Obi Wan Kenobi would arrive first since his pre-order came earlier than Master Fisto’s. Anyway, this is my first Sideshow Star Wars 12″ figure that does not have a human face. I had bought Luke and Anakin figures earlier and both were fantastic!

Promo shots of Kit Fisto on Sideshow’s website had shown a Kit Fisto face with an gaping mouth. I had reservations on that look since Luke’s similar gaping mouth made the figure have a blur look. You could look at Luke and have hundreds of funny captions running through your head! But I shall refrain from elaborating on that and show respect for the Jedi Order since Master Fisto is in the house today. Anyway, the gaping mouth is attributed to the Nautolan’s signature smile(as can be seen in Attack of the Clones during the Battle of Geonosis). I hope my first non-human Jedi will grow on me as I slowly expand my Jedi council.

Other than opening the box briefly in the shop to do a quick check, I have yet to take out the figure or the accessories. Sideshow’s Star Wars 12″ line has a groundbreaking box design. It is absolutely collector-friendly – the figure and the accessories can be accessed easily without putting a knife to the box. They have even included an ingenious magnet on the box flap to lock the box when it is closed. Opening the box involves detaching the magnet and the box opens to reveal the figure and accessories compartments. Sideshow has also printed the a description on the figure in between these compartments. Everything is so beautifully done and very much appreciated by this Star Wars fan here! Thank you Sideshow!

Takara and some other competing companies could learn from their box design!

As usual, a review should be posted here in the next few days. Stay tuned.
