Anyone been watching the old ones on ebay lately? So who was it that was worried about devaluation? The old ones are still going for more than the new ones.
even if it's being updated, there still were only 1,000 made. that's a pretty low edition size no matter what the prop.
Did you guys see the one guy who wants 2 grand for his samaritan?
Say what you will about edition size. The number of samaritan on ebay JUMPED as soon as the new one was announced. That's gotta tell you somethin. The people that had the old one now want to unload it to get the new one
I think I'm gonna display my old one on the new stand and then have the new gun lying around the house to play with!
I ordered mine last night and I'm glad I just stumbled on this. I get sideshows newsletter, but I somehow this one went under the radar. Same thing happened last time and I missed out. This is just too cool to pass up!
Got lost in the flurry of Toy Fair news I guess.
So does anybody know what KIND of metal will be used? Is it that Zymac stuff or whatever, that Master Replicas uses?
Exclusive metal Samaritan SOLD OUT according to Sideshow site. Wait list in effect.
Edition size set at 850.
GHAA!!! That was quick. Only 850 pieces too! Glad I got my order in. Man, I'm almost as excited for this prop as I am for "Vera". (I said almost!)
I would imagine they'd use cast aluminum or something due to the size. A few Denix items use some kind of porous light weight stuff that feels a little like aluminum but is probably an inexpensive alloy blend. I had a small hand axe made out of the stuff but it broke (snapped in two) while filming a scene in an old Fantasy parody I did. The high-pitched "clink" sound you can hear in the Samaritan video made me think of how that axe sounded when tapped against another metal object.

Just to clarify, the non-exclusive Sammy is still available. But it's the same price, $400. So you might shop around and save a few bux.
wow, that was real fast!!
Glad I got in quick!!!!!!
I thought it sold very slowly. I think $400 for a non-firing gun had people thinking twice. Not me though...I placed my order the second I saw it.
The Exclusive 12" General Obi-Wan Kenobi sold out in 8 and half minutes...
Heh heh...My bad...$500...$400...it's all the same after $200... i.e. More money than I care to part with, but I just GOTTA HAVE IT!!!

Don't you mean $400?
Glad I got mine!
Now I'm still not sure whether I want to sell my gen 1...
There's a video? loL!
You had me nervous there for a minute...."Did I pay $500 and just not notice????"
I seriously can't wait for this gun! Or the movie! Or to see what Hellboy stuff Sideshow releases next!
Anybody order/receive the belt and holster yet?
The belt and holster is from our fine friends at Hollywood Collectibles.
Have been thinking it was a bad impulse purchase, now it's sold out I'm really, REALLY glad I went for it!
Finally got a reply concerning whether the samaritan would come from the UK wahehouse even though my confirmation said US( i live in the UK):
I’m not sure what caused your confirmation email to say that this item was shipping from the US; however please rest assured that your order will be shipping directly from our warehouse in the UK. I have looked at your order and everything looks correct including the warehouse designation.
Please accept my apologies for the confusion and if I can be of any further assistance, just let me know.
So there you have it. If you live in the UK it will come from the UK, which is nice to know.
Did I hear the guy in the video right? JUST the gun weighs 10 pounds?!
oh yeh, thats right. To buy the gun is $50.
The rest is postage !!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;-)
That's actually a more realistic way to look at it!
First "payment plan" payment deducted yesterday!
