Thanks. Yea, I wish they would have finished them too. Apparantly Sideshow had planned to, but their licence to produce 1/6 scale figures expired, and Mezco snatched it up. Mezco's 1:6 scale Jasons are only articulated with real clothing from the waist up, from the waist down they are all painted plastic. So they're like some kind of strange hybrid figures, lol.

Here's some more pics of 'Manhattan' customs:

Yea...Mezco's 1:6 scale Part VII is pretty decent, but in interviews the Mezco artists were talking shit about how Sideshow's Part VII supposedly wasn't "film accurate", how the face sculpt wasn't right, and that their figure was going to be far superior while priced considerably less. Then Mezco's version comes out, and its facial sculpt isn't even as good as Sideshow's, and the lower half was merely painted plastic, etc., etc..

Not to mention the fact that Sideshow's Part VII was a lotta bang for your buck (priced between $40 to $45 when it was initially released)...unlike most Sideshow figures, that particular design featured a fully sculpted latex body suit underneath the fabric clothing; showing off all the jutting bones and rotting flesh, etc.

The latex bodysuit concept was first introduced with Sideshow's legendary 1:6 scale 'Creature From the Black Lagoon' figure, which to this day remains perhaps the single greatest 12-inch horror figure ever produced...funny how the Creature figure was once available from stores like Spencer's for only $20, even though it compares to any $150 Hot Toys figure out today...I also find it amusing that Mezco's guys had the tenacity to badmouth Sideshow's Part VII figure, in spite of the fact that Sideshow sells the Mezco figures from their own site. Way to bite the hand...
