Transcript of Open Question Session with Sideshow CEO Greg Anzalone

October 27th, 2009

OK guys, here is the full transcript of the chat with Greg Anzalone, and let me warn you, it's HUGE!  What I've done is taken the full log of the chat and edited out anything that wasn't either a question to Greg or Greg responding.  Once I filtered all that out (90% of the work was taking out all the spam from CelticPredator's ramblings lol!) I then matched up Greg's answers to the original posters.  In the actual chat, people were spewing questions like mad and Greg had Dusty and Alex typing his answers as best they could.  There was about a 20 minute gap between when the question was first posted and when it was answered.

You will also notice that some questions are not answered…  there were a lot of duplicate questions so it was probably already asked or Greg missed it.  There was also a cut off point when Dennis from Sideshow stated no more questions but many asked anyhow just in case, but they weren't answered.  And then just before he leaves, he starts giving out stuff, even a BOSSK BUST!!!  When that happened, the chat went absolutely NUTS!

So here it is… the flaying of Greg Anzalone, President and CEO of Sideshow Collectibles:

<Greg_Anzalone> Hello everybody and I'm ready to give you some Sideshow love!

 <jasonxx> what new premium format can we look forward 2?
<@GregAnzalone> Jasonxx: Our next upcoming Premium Format Figure will be the Darth Talon…shown in episode 5 of 'Help Wanted'!

 <Master> Greg : When shall have we a preview of Obi-Wan Kenobi Revenge of the Sith Premium Format?
<Greg_Anzalone> Master – I'm not really sure about Obi-Wan Episode 3 at this moment, it's not in development

 <its420brother>    Hello, Greg!  Welcome, good sir.   What are the chance of expanding the liscence with The Fifth Element? I know about the couple of bobbleheads that are on the site, but I would really love to see a 12" PF LeeLoo (Milla Jovovich).  I happened to notice that the film still has it's own site, with a newly re-released DVD edition that I imagine they are and will be promoting.  Any potential that The Fifth Element line might be explored by SSC in 12"
<@GregAnzalone> We currently have no plans to do The 5th Element product.  But we'll keep you posted if that changes

 <Kabukiman> Greg – We've heard of certain licenses that Sideshow would love to acquire, but are prevented from due to difficulties with the licensor. Is there anything us Freaks can do help persuade the licensor? Would you encourage or discourage such "help"?
<Greg_Anzalone> kabukiman – we would encourage any help that might be possible.  We'd love to be able to do Blade Runner!

 <creature4000> does SS have plans to do another version of Thor in PF or comiquette?
<@GregAnzalone> Yes we planning another version of Thor.  Likely based on the future film release.

 <mpahlbod> hi greg, are you guys getting close to getting the dc license?
<Greg_Anzalone> DC License – I can neither confirm nor deny how close we are to getting the DC license

<Greg_Anzalone> Ys, we will continue both lines for Iron Man 2

 <Computerfly> Hellraiser license, 2010?
<@GregAnzalone> Yes, we hope to do Hellraiser!

  <Nitro> Will we see a Wlfman 1:1 bust?
<Greg_Anzalone> Nitro – Wolman 1:1 bust – we would like to do one, but at the moment it is not in development, please stay tuned!

 <ma1138> Could it be possible to have a warehouse in Canada for Canadian customers? On one $299.99 order I paid over $135.00 in shipping and customs. Or perhaps send with Fedex Ground instead of Air? I don't require my statue to arrive in two days
<@GregAnzalone> ma1138: Sorry for the Canadain issues, but we don't have plans at the moment to have a Canadian warehouse.  I will look into less expensive ways in getting products to you.

 <SSC794> HI greg, does sideshow plan on getting any license from DC and doing DC Comics statues? Thanks

<TheNAM> Is it fair to assume that Sideshow is pretty much done with the 12" New Line figures?

<@GregAnzalone> TheCrystalShip: We will be distributing the QMX Firefly products

<Greg_Anzalone> Gabby – we HOPE to be working with the Harry Potter license in the near future but no solid plans at the moment

<johnnyms> greg thanks for coming i was wondering if there are any plans for sideshow to make new evil dead stuff

 <OscarGungan> Two properties I see on wish lists all the time are Blade Runner and Fifth Element, but I'm understanding that because of rights issues, neither one would ever happen. Is this true?

<jasonxx> how far are u going 2 go with the movie legend line? simply awesome so far, thanks.

<swabie> Greg, did you ever think Sideshow would get this big when you started it in 1995?  Did the Star Wras license change everything for you?

<SweetPea> thank you for the zombie question….Greg, the Haz Mad character/zombie was one of thee most requested characters since he was part of the original 'The Dead' viral. Will he ever come into fruition?

<SSC060> Greg, Will Sideshow work with Bernie Wrightson again? I would LOVE to see 12 inch and PF Figures of Wrightson's Frankenstein in black and white like Bernie's drawings, in color,  and in Faux Bronze.

<Master> When will you show Jack Sparrow Premium Format?

<ozzfan84> Greg, many of us SSE collectors were pleased with the edition size increase for the SSE Creature from the Black Lagoon diorama; because it allowed us enough time/statues for everyone who really wanted one to get one. How does Sideshow decide on appropriate edition sizes on lines or certain products that are meant to be ultra rare "special" items?
<@GregAnzalone> ozzfan84: The decision about Edition Sizes  is made by a small group of manager in which suggestions are discussed and ultimately a decision is made by me and the creator director.

<Deeznutz> Why is the GI JOE line moving soooooooooooo slow?

<johnnyms> any plans to release LOST products

<Battletroll> Are you exploring more Marvel Civil War products or was the Iron Spider-Man the only one?

<SweetPea> I heard Gambit looks great.

<Faken> I actually have a very unqiue non-license question…  at one point Sideshow was offering all sorts of products from famous actor and not-so-famous potter Lance Henriksen.  Then sudenly all the products vanished from the site and was never mentioned again.  Was there a serious breakdown in that relationship?  It's a real shame, I loved the AvP Tiles and bowls that were being offered.

<joem1k> greg will thier be a remake version of freddy kruger ?

<superdoug> have you guys ever thought of doing prizes of touring your studio for a day or something like that?

<Punkg42> Hello Greg.  Any plans to reprint old volumes of the SS Catalogs?  If not, do you know where I could get Vol 1-9?  🙂

<Nitro> Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions, Greg! You have a great staff out there!! Keep up the great work!!
<@GregAnzalone> Nitro: Thanks for the kind comment.  I too love our staff and believe that they do an awesome job for the community.

<Computerfly> Kratos – One piece deal or more characters in PF?

<Fritz> Hello Greg, My two favorite companies are Sideshow and Weta, any chance at you guys getting back together or has that bridge been burned?  Thanks!

 <SSC794> What should I get for my Sideshow tattoo?

<Clockwork463> do you have any plans to pursue more video game licences in the future?

<pitu> GregAnzalone have you guys thought of doing PFs on Sports? Like Manning, Jordan, Babe Rooth?

<Kenbenobi> help wanted is AWESOME
<Greg_Anzalone> Kenbenobi-away: thanks for the kind words about Help Wanted we had some fun in making it!

<The_Mike> Ah more Questions! @Greg, have you considered using the Hobbit bodies to incorporate children Zombies? Like a dead Girl Scout with body parts and boxes of cookies in a red wagon?

<zombieSpyke> due to my epilepsy i cant get all of the HELP WANTED words any chance of getting a heads up or a hot toys t600 to make up for my seizures that i had from watching it?

<Elder> Will Sideshow ask Hot Toys about distribuing the AVP Snap Kits?

<SSC730> Hey Greg, do you think Sideshow will EVER pick up anything form the DC universe? (i.e. Dark Knight joker PF)
<@GregAnzalone> SSC730: We hope to be working in the DC universe at some point in the future.  It may be the distant future but we will continue to remain hopeful.

<ma1138> Can we see more of Help Wanted star Allison Volk in the future? She is cute!

<Toast> @Greg will there be anymore Butcher give aways? 🙂

<@GregAnzalone> CelticPredator: We will send you a Hot Toys product!  PM Dennis, so he can get your details.
<CelticPredator> WHAT…
<CelticPredator> WOW
<CelticPredator> Holy crap…

<Buff> I'll buy the Abomination PF if there is a discount
<Greg_Anzalone> Buff: we can activate a discount for your abomination purchase… please contact customer service, as we ran an Abomination discount earlier in spook – they should be able to replicate that for you!

<featheredserpent> Since other companies dont, why did you decide to do a spooktacular event and christmas giveaways?  They are really great and I have enjoyed them.  I wanted to say thank you for an X-mas gift last year for my parents that was appreciated more than you'll know!!!  Thanks!!!
<@GregAnzalone> featheredserpent: Thanks for the kind words.  We're glad to do what we do, and hope to continue to run events around Halloween and Christmas, and to giveaway as much as possible.

* HAPPYBOY just wants a single MORT to keep his HAPPY sanity
<Greg_Anzalone> HAPPYBOY: What color Mort do you want?

 <Greg_Anzalone> Thanks for all the great questions – gotta get outta here pretty quick…

<Shropt> Greg, please. It sounds crazy, but can I have a Bossk Bust. I say go big or go home and Sideshow loves to go big and impress their customers!!!

<Greg_Anzalone> shropt – it's your lucky day…. I'm back on but nor for long… not before making your FREAKIN' DAY..
<Greg_Anzalone> YES, you can have a Bossk Bust…

<Greg_Anzalone> mdim: we're happy to do the best we can for your son and the rest of our fans around the globe and appreciate your comments here.

<Greg_Anzalone> zombieSpyke: Yes, you can  have a Hot Toys T-600 since you can't watch Help Wanted – PM Dennis with your contact info (name, shipping, phone, email)
