Sideshow SDCC Exclusives (including COBRA Commander) revealed in Sideshow TV

Sideshow Collectibles has posted their latest installment of Sideshow TV, this time around focusing on their San Diego ComicCon exclusives.  Of course included in these exclusives is the semi-revealed Crimson COBRA Commander, and this video gives us a great look at the complete figure.  COBRA Commander appears at about the 7:00 minute mark and is one impressive looking entry into the exclusive field.  As a straight-up repaint/rerelease of the standard version, I wasn’t all that impressed, but I gotta tell you he looks really striking in full on red and silver, and looks like he comes with a gorgeous cape instead of the trenchcoat.  Dang.  I wanted to not like this figure, but looking at this I just can’t help but love it (even if I won’t likely be dropping the massive coin for it).  Obviously patterened after the Crimson Guard, COBRA Commander looks amazing, and Sideshow did a spectacular job taking a figure that normally I wouldn’t care less about and making it just a little bit painful that he’s an expensive SDCC Exclusive.

    I was trying really hard not to want all these Sideshow figures but they keep making them more and more awesome with each release. I’ll be forking over the $100+ they’ll probably be asking for for this one and not regret a penny of it. And since the movie line isn’t really exciting me all that much (it’s growing on me but not in a gotta have ’em all way) I’ll have more cash for these beautiful figures.

    The red is very vibrant without being bright and the silver highlights pop nicely. The cape though is what sells it for me. It’s going to have the wire in the bottom hem just like the Jedi robes so you can pose it however you like and it won’t just hang there lifelessly. Also I can definitely see them reusing the shirt and pants for a Crimson Guard, with a few modifications of course. Definitely going to have to be online for the presale of this one because I don’t want to pay scalper prices for him and he’ll fetch a pretty penny on the aftermarket I can see it now.
