Sideshow 1/6 General Grievous and Medicom 4-LOM spotted at SDCC 2011

All credit for these pictures must go to Photographer D. Martin Myatt and the good folks at for bringing these images to us, especially for those of us who are just too far away from SDCC 2011 and have no chance of attending the convention. Follow the link to their site for more pictures of all things Star Wars that can be found at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con.

General Grievous is the Cyborg supreme commander of the Separatist droid armies. He was killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi in "Revenge of the Sith".

4-LOM is a bounty hunter droid in "The Empire Strikes Back". 4-LOM was an ambitious protocol droid who overwrote his own programming to embark on a life of crime. This is the Medicom 4-LOM prototype figure. You know what I think of Medicom's products - way OVERPRICED and PUNY sized! Wouldn't touch them with a 12-foot pole and the pictures below will show you why!

There are also pictures of Boba Fett, Han Solo frozen in Carbonite, and lots and lots of Battle Droids, all repainted with a different color here and there and repackaged as an alternate droid. The Sideshow Empire grows and grows with all these repaints. You can even see a 1/6 scale Battle Droid on a Single Trooper Aerial Platform (STAP).
