Is that blasphemous? I mean Hasbro invented 12″ action figures right? They kind of have a 45 year history with the whole thing.
Well, yeah, of course, but the main difference is that Hasbro makes 12″ figures for Joe and Jane Consumer to be sold at Wal-Mart for twelve bucks. Obviously they’ve got some limitations. Sideshow Collectibles has thrown all limitations out the window, and priced their 12″ offerings at a dubious $100+ per figure, which I might think would scare off a good majority of even the most hardcore G.I. Joe collectors.
Regardless of this fact, Sideshow puts their mouth where the money is and when you invest big bucks, you get a huge return.
