Sideshow is certainly inventive when it comes to their Star Wars products! Providing collectors with a vast array of collectible types, each format can find an audience of avid and excited collectors. The appeal of their products are a culmination of some of the most basic parts of what makes a collectible awesome. Authentic sculpts, beautiful paint jobs, quality polystone with some weight to it and clever and unique concepts all work together to deliver the epitome of what a great Star Wars collectible should be. After first starting out with Premium Format figures, they quickly picked up the 12" figure and 1:1 life-size busts in the Star Wars license as well. But a few years later they delved into the polystone diorama vicinity. This immediately perplexed collectors because we didn't fully understand how this was separate from what Gentle Giant, Ltd. was able to do with the license they held. And to be honest, the differences are still muddy to us. What we do know however is that Sideshow has for the most part knocked Gentle Giant Ltd. for a loop because many of Sideshow's polystone dioramas have come out better than some of their statues and other products.
Relatively new to the diorama line is exclusivity. Only the last couple of products have come with an exclusive version. There Will Be No Bargain is one of these said pieces. The stunning sculpture is beautiful and it comes with an interchangeable hand that holds a squealing Gamorrean Guard (the exclusive) as well as the standard hand with Luke Skywalker holding a femur. The sculpting on the characters is nothing short of amazing, although we are entirely crazy about the expression on Luke's face. But the outfits and the fine details of the costumes are crafted in marvelous accuracy and we are thoroughly impressed with the final production piece. The Rancor monster itself is incredible as well. Flawlessly colored from the puppet we saw in the film, there is plenty of "jaws", slime and anger all captured in this sculpture. Sideshow has also included a real metal chain that attaches to the handcuff and it too has been weathered in a way that looks like natural oxidation has taken place. It is very realistic and a great extra detail to this already great diorama.
