    Which would you choose? Sideshow He-Man statue? Or PCS He-Man statue?

    Find myself torn between these. I've pre-ordered the sideshow but also tempted by the PCS version, which I see can't be pre-ordered until July.

    If you could choose one, which would it be?!

    Regretted parting with my 2001 SDCC statue many years ago and never thought I'd be in the position of not being able to decide which of two He-Man statues to buy to replace it...

    I prefer the Sideshow He-Man statue, personally. It's a design that I don't have in my collection and it would be unique.

    Yes, that's what I was thinking. Almost wish the choice wasn't there though!!

    Incidentally, could anyone tell me which scale size the SDCC statue and NECA statues would have been classed as? Would they have been 1/4 or 1/5 scale? Or neither? I'm a little worried the Sideshow one might be small. I'm no expert on the scale references but having owned the SDCC and NECA statues I might be able to get an idea.

    Thanks for your help.

    There are two PCS He-Man statues. The Filmation statue has been out a while now. The Classic statue went up for preorder last year. Which one are you talking about?

    Hi, This one -

    http://www.popcultureshocktoys.com/he-man-statue.html


    Just realised - this was last year, wasn't it? I seem to have unwittingly displayed my statue collecting amateurishness...oh well - as I've missed it I guess it helps with deciding which one to go for! Even if I do feel foolish, haha!

    You wouldn't happen to know the scale of the original SDCC He-Man and NECA full size statues would you, in comparison to the Sideshow one? Thanks

    I'm not sure about SDCC He-Man, but the NECA statues and Sideshow statues should be close to the same size. The PCS statue would be noticeably larger. If you decide on the PCS statute, you could email them and request to be added to the wait list.

    That's great, good to know. Thanks for the info, helps to get it straight in my mind size wise. You can tell this is new to me - I bought an IKEA Detolf display case the other day but it looks like the statue is twice the recommended weight for the shelf!

    I've learnt to do my research next time..!

    I'm going Sideshow. I'm not a big fan of the Filmation style.

    As has been discussed the OP was not talking about the Filmation statue.

    I'd prefer the PCS statue. There's just something about the Sideshow version's face I don't like. If PCS had a payment system rather than just a down payment I'd consider getting it. Oh well…

    PCS offers three payment options: pay in full, pay deposit up front and the rest when it ships, or a payment plan broken up into 4-6 payments depending on the price of the statue. They aren't showing up anymore because it is sold out.

    It says preorders open in July...unless that's antiquated information. If not, maybe I'll bite when they come back then.

    Yes, that's what confused me. Weird that it doesn't say 'sold out'.

    Does anyone know if PCS will be doing a non Filmation Skeletor as well as the He-Man?

    Yes they will.
    There will be a combo set with panthor as they did for non Filmation He-man with battlecat, and you will be able to purchase the combo or only Skeletor or only panthor.

    The he-man arrived for July August this year and the preorder was in September/October last year.
    Jerry, the sculptor, is working on Shera and said Skeletor panthor is schedulded but still has to work on it, so I guess nothing before next year.
    We still do not have any preoder.

    Ok, thanks again.

    That's a long wait between He-Man and Skeletor.

    Sideshow all the way. I really do not like the PCS one.

    Thanks for the advice. I emailed them today so hopefully I'll be added to the wait list. I won't get my hopes up though..

    Does anyone have any experience with these wait lists? Anyone got lucky in the past?! Keeping my fingers crossed..

    I don't have first hand experience, but it is my understanding that it is quite common for people to abandon or cancel orders. It probably all depends on how many people are in front of you.

    It is also up in the air whether the accompanying Skeletor gets produced. Many bought under the assumption that Skeletor was coming. That may help your chances.

    Also, have you looked at any third party sites? There is no exclusive for He-Man which is the big incentive for ordering directly from PCS. If you want Battlecat as well, then best to get it directly from PCS.

    Thanks again for your help with this. Yes, I'd be happy with just He-Man, not worried about the combo. Wouldn't be able to fit it all in!

    I'll have a search for other sites, you never know. Is there any you have experience with that you could recommend? Sorry for all the questions!

    Big bad toy store has it available. Not sure if I'm allowed to post a link but should be easy enough to find.
