Sideshow Collectibles Expands Star Wars Range With Exciting New Diorama Series
'Versus' Line Depicts Environments And Epic Conflicts From A Galaxy Far, Far Away

Thousand Oaks, CA (February, 2007) -Enthusiastic Star Wars collectors are getting a new opportunity to expand their Star Wars collections with a new range of collectibles from Sideshow Collectibles that bring some of the most famous scenes and environments from the epic adventure saga to life as beautifully sculpted polystone collectibles.

Sideshow Collectibles, of Thousand Oaks, California, worked closely with Lucasfilm Ltd. to produce the new line, which builds on its three successful lines of Star Wars products, including 18-inch Premium Format figures, 12-inch plastic figures, and life-size collectibles.

The designs for the Star Wars 'Versus' dioramas were drawn from the most dynamic and dramatic confrontations in the films, and the environments will seek to capture some of the Star Wars Saga's vast landscapes, immense creatures and varied locations - but in a reasonable size that collectors can display on a desktop or hang on a wall. The size and scale will vary, but most of the 'Versus' dioramas will be in approximately 1:9 scale. The Star Wars 'Versus' environments will vary greatly in size and scale.

"Star Wars offers an amazing wealth of characters, environments, architecture, and incredibly memorable scenes," says Tom Gilliland, Sideshow's Creative Director. "With the Premium Format, 12-inch, and life-size lines, we are able to really explore the character sculpture and costuming, reproducing it in exact or smaller scale, but the characters are each produced as individual products. We're tremendously excited to branch out with the new Diorama series, to capture the dynamic confrontations, the action and excitement of the lightsaber duels, and to make some of the big environments in a collectible scale. This is going to be a very diverse line, one with a lot of energy."

Like nearly all of Sideshow Collectibles' products, Star Wars Diorama series will be issued in limited editions. MSRP will range from $50 to $350.
