Acme
« on: July 30, 2006, 12:47:54 PM »
Alright I had to start a thread about Acme.  After seeing all of their stuff at SDCC I am hooked.  By far my favorite thing to collect is clone wars item and right now that is all they do.  They and Sideshow have even created a partnership.  It seems that at first SS will work with Acme to create and distrubute character keys as SS exclsuives.  I missed out on the SDCC Sidious exclusive and I just can not get over it.  I was thinking about collecting some of the Harry Potter bust but now that Acme is in the picture that will not happen.  Anybody else have any thoughts on ACME?

The stuff is cool. I might grab some since SS is doing the making any of the ones they do easier to get. That Sidious one was nuts they did like 30 a day and where all gone within like 15 mins.

Yeah,  a couple of the days they sold 100 and it sold out in three minutes.  It was probally the hardest convention exclusive to get.  This is where having a farther away hotel hurt me I just could not get there early enough to compete.

Yeah, I was only 5 blocks away and I think they where sold out by the time I got to the convention center each day. This and Malfoy I think rank as the two hardest.

Yeah,  the only reason I say Acme was harder is beacause we had the option of pre-ordering Malfoy.  However if you did not pre-order malfoy then it may have been harder.  Both were tough.

True. I did see something about order the Sidious print but it may have been only for those not going and I never saw it again on another site. I never researched it that hard.

They did do a pre-order for 50 of them.  However it seemed as if a lot of people missed them still.  People who ordered them online could have got more at the show.  I whish I would have went into the convention knowing all of this stuff.  I would maybe have one.  To much worrying about GG.

Anyways,  I am hooked now and some of my collecting money will be going towards Acme.  looking forward to seeing the first SS exclusive.

That's what the deal was then. That's not a good setup though to allow those who PO to be able to get them at the show just like that. Well, next year we can make sure we check out all the sites that post about the exclusives so you don't miss anything.

True that.  I guess for Acme the character keys were loosing popularity.  The Padme key was on Starwarsshop for a month.  Acme adjusted but then the popularity of these items rose before the convention and then came some problems.  I knew about this exclusive before the show but it was not until I saw it and the Anakin key that I realized how cool there are.  I was abkle to get Anakin and Mace but all others will be tough.

Yeah, that's always a problem with collecting. Sometimes a line starts to die down so they cut the ES on a few pieces then right before those come out it gets new life. Making those pieces oh so much fun to get. LOL With time I bet you can get them all.

Yeah, I would say on average for all the non exclsuive cels it is about 2.5-3 times retail.  Like we talked about though right now they are very popular so hopefully it will die down.

Some fetch a pretty penny on Ebay- the C3 Yoda for example but they are really cool pieces to have in your collection. I am after a select few but have the approach if I stumble on them great if not I am fine as well. To me these have more appeal than just a bust or a a HTF figure as I view them as art and as a SW collectable.

Well, while we are in a low tide for these things might be a good time to go after a few then. Would you be willing to trade your BHST bust for the harder to get ones if you could get them in one lump grouping?

Recon that's how I look at stuff like this as well art from Star Wars.

Recon do you have any of these and which ones are you after.

Josh,

Lets say you had all the character keys and offered me that trade.  I will be honest it would be hard to turn it down.

Recon,

That sericel is great.  Have you ever seen it in person.  Just to give everyone some info on Acme.

They products mutiple product lines.  The first and the one that Recon gave a direct link to is the most popular and most collectable line.  They are called character keys or cels what ever you prefer.  So far keys of, Yoda,Obi,Arc,Padme,Grievous,Mace,Anakin and Sidious have been made. 
Moving up in price they make Limited edition Giclee.  So far there has been four of these.  Heros and villians, Arc troopers, The Light of the Jedi and The shadow of the Sith.  The last two we released at Comic Con and are awesome.  I picked them both up and Acme was kind enough to give me matching numbers, 21/500 for both.  Here is a link to those. http://www.acmearchivesdirect.com/
Moving on Acme produces limited edition Sericels such as Obi with Arcs.  The differance between these and the Giclee's is that the sericels are 3-d much like the character cels.  Here is a link to Obi with Arcs. http://www.acmearchivesdirect.com/index.htm?view=prod&prodid=698&catid=173.

Some of the others they produce/distrubute are Clone Wars limited production art, hand painted cels, hand painted character model sheets and a new line called 3-d panscapes as seen here http://www.andrewstoyz.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=313.

I can not say how impressed I was with them at SDCC they were by far the biggest surprise for me at the convention.

You can also get the one of one hand done cells right from ACME, very cool but pricey. When you think though that you have the only one that was done though it adds to having one very nice center piece for a collection.

Yep, I was including them in the clone wars original art.  I would say this Yoda one is my favorite http://www.acmearchivesdirect.com/index.htm?view=prod&prodid=1145&catid=230.  This was at SDCC and last only untill the second day.

Man I didn't know there were that many! The two you picked up at SDCC are really cool, I can only imagine how nice they look behind your busts and statues! I really like the clone ones as well as the one with yoda talking to his ride.... But damn, are they expensive!!!! You could get the entire line of busts (well I could) for less than a few of those expensive ones....

True that wicked.  The one of a kinds are way out of  my price range for the time being. Yeah the ones I got I really like.  I had no idea they existed untill I walked up to the Acme booth and saw them.  I got the Light of the Jedi one right away and the shadow of the sith a day later.  I do not have any extra money to get nice frames for these so I went to michaels and got 6 dollar frames that fit them nicely.  They look ok but it was mainly for protection.

$90 each and like I said they have matching numbers so that is an added visual bonus.  Hopefully for every character in the prints a matching maquette will be made.

Recon,

Man that is awesome you got the arc.  Here is the dilema.  The sidious key is $100 dollars and it is 4 by six.  The Giclee you got framed was 180 and it is the same size as the others I have.  You get a lot more art for not that much more money.  Just do not know what to do.  If it was Yoda I would not be having this problem but sidious is not my favorite character.

Wait one second there Wicked, I think we were on a different page.  I was talking about my pre-order for the Commando maquette.  I have yet to get the sidious cel.  I love the Anakin and asajji cel hopefully it will go on real low clearance so we can snag it.

That would be cool. I'd get that. I know they are just doing clone wars right now but if they did a Maul, Vader, 501st Clone, Cody something like that I'd get one.

Cody was in the Clone Wars so we may see him in this line.  I love these things now and will get all of the Clone Wars ones and probally most of the others.

I would love to see them stick to making these cels to correspond to the animated style maquettes/statues that they make. So far, it's been pretty much done that way, with the exception of Mace and now Sidious. But it would rock if they made the cels for Vader and Boba Fett to match the upcoming animated maquettes.

How do you like your Print?  I finally decided to get the Sidious key, so now I have the Arc, Sidious, Anakin and mace keys.  Need padme, Yoda, Obi and Grievous.

Dave,

Our you Couting Asajji?  It will be on sale tomorrow from razors edge.  Both these keys look great, however, that is not the final product with the Shaak Ti key and it will change before it is released, so it will probally be even beter.

Is it just me or have they raised the prices on these? $36.25 for a key is expensive IMO. And why is the foreign key cheaper than the US key? Only $30 if you live outside the US but $36.25 inside the US?

After you take away the shipping, it comes out to be around $31 for the key, which is more expensive than any of the other keys released so far.

Got my Assajj in the mail today too... 929/1250. I ordered this like the minute they went on sale, but yet 928 people got theirs before me? Doesn't make any sense. Anyway...

Still looking for General Greivous if anyone has one... it's the only one I need  :(

Just as an FYI - anyone who ordered the Shaak Ti key cel, if you have not gotten your order yet, contact ACME as soon as you can. I contacted them because I've been seeing around the 'net that people are getting these in the mail, yet my credit card hasn't even been charged for my order yet. Seems there was some kind of problem with the ordering process and my credit card information wasn't submitted to ACME.

Hopefully this isn't going to be a Gentle Giant fiasco all over again  ::)

Really? What don't you like about it?

Personally I would have rather gotten Darth Vader, or Boba Fett. Or if it just had to be Leia, I would have preferred the original ANH white outfit. But I'll take this one, just the same.

I guess it comes down to character choice and the scene.  While I think the Key actually looks good it just does not interest me personally.

Got the R2 and C-3P0 cels in the mail earlier this week, and just like everything else, they are winners indeed.

Man, I love these key cels... they are amazing.

Wayne, those Walgreens frames are the best I've seen so far. They work great. You can also get them on the Walgreens website, and the last time I checked (and ordered a bunch) they were actually cheaper online than they were at the store.

And hey, check out this image I found:



Not sure if this was a rejected concept for the Anakin, or something that's going to be made for an upcoming cel (I hope not, since we already have an Anakin) but I thought it was pretty neat.

Yeah, these are really cool. I got my 3PO and R2 the other day from SWS. They're really quite additive.

I ordered my first ever Character Key today off ebay. Anakin, it may be one of the really plain ones but its a good place to start. I hope when it arrives i can find a decent frame for it.

Got my Anakin Character Key in the mail today, im not sure how im gonna display it yet i.e. can i be bothered to buy a frame and which kind i will get. I really love this though, its a nice little piece of artwork of one of my fav characters. I wouldnt say im hooked on the line but this one rocks, and i may pick a few more up in the future if i can get a good deal like i did on this one.

Hi all,
ACME’s new line of Star War artwork is a metal Sketchplate™.  The first of the series was quietly released at CIV.  This is the Prototype R2 Design from McQuarrie.  The plate is mounted and raised above a black acrylic frame.  This item sold for $30 at the CIV booth.  I talked to someone at the ACME booth and the next item should be ready by SDCC.  He did not tell me who was next in the series, but said that this is not limited to characters.  Vehicles and ships are on the horizon as well.  He also said that real Star Wars characters, vehicles, and ships will be portrayed on the metal Skecthplate™ besides the McQuarrie concepts.  I think they are branching to see what else their customers like.  Well they have a new customer with me.  I hope they continue this line.  I would like to see the concept C-3PO.  Only time will tell.

Enjoy,
Odie

Boy that acme print sure does look really cool and shows how the R2 units really are and all but very cool to look at and have for a collector like me but i bet its a little pricey as well so, its just a shame that we dont use R2 units for REAL life cause then our life would be more like SW like i would love it too be.

I still think I will pass.  Either I will pass or go back and get Tarkin and Leia.  I still need to get Yoda, Obi and Padme from the clone wars line.  Also would like to pick up the Arc trooper Giclee and heroes and villains.  Acme has got a lot of my money lately as at C4 I purchased a one of one and actually would like to get at least one more in the future.

Nice! What did you get? And did you have another in mind already?

I've always wanted to pick up a few of them, but I just can't justify the prices. Not saying they aren't worth it, but just that they are expensive. But the value om items like that usually doesn't drop, it can only go up.

Dave,

It is one that was never posted online or not that I know of.  It has both Yoda and Mace with ignited light sabers and came with original drawings and production drawings.  I purchased it at C4 and had Acme frame it. 
It has yet to be shipped but when it gets here I will try to post some pictures.  Yeah I agree with the price it probably never will go down and it may never really go up, the thing about these are that they are hard to find now and in the future may be next to impossible.

If you want a glimpse of what it will look like it is from the last episode of the Clone Wars Micro Series.  In the first couple of minutes there is a part in which Yoda and Mace stand side by side together with ignited light sabers.  It is from that scene.

Anthony, didn't see this question until today, but I'm guessing it was posted at me?? If so, then no, Yoda was the first one I bought. One of the lucky few who bought it at C3... and it was actually the very first thing I bought at C3. ACME was at the first table as you walked into the dealer room, right behind the Code3 booth. If I had knew then what I know today, I would have bought 10 of these little guys.

As of right now I am all caught up... not all of them were purchased at retail, because I got screwed out of a few exclusives by some "friends" of mine at another site (or at least someone I thought was a friend) but I am all caught up.

I'm not surprised, really. These character keys have been gaining popularity from day one. Plus, it's an OT key, and even though they haven't made any of these characters in this cartoon format (yet), I know a lot of OT guys (and gals) who are buying these that didn't buy the CW Animated cels. Which doesn't make too much sense IMO, because at least the CW ones were shown in that form on tv.

And it's only going to get worse, with the more exclusives that they make. I know the TIE Pilot isn't exclusive, but by my count most of these guys have been exclusives. More exclusives than regular releases, as crazy as that sounds.

Yeah, and for us  non-attendees they will probably put like 50 up for sale, like they did with the Darth Sidious from last year. I think it was sold out in about 9 seconds, if not less. And sadly, I'm not even exaggerating. That was one of the keys that I had to purchase from ebay for $100+, and I have a bad feeling I'll be doing the same with this Sandtrooper  >:(

Yeah, I think he'll go pretty quick for both Attendees and Non. Sidious was just wacky last year even for those going. They did not handle it all that well at the show and it pretty much sold out each day within about 30 mins of the show opening.

You are welcome.

We get almost all of them.  A few of the exclusives we don't get.

As noted on sandtrooper.com homepage we will have the tie-fighter pilot on sale july 16th.

There is a chance that we will also have some of the SDCC sandtrooper cels but we wont know that until the end of next week.

Rick,

Nice to see you posting here.  To let everyone I make all of my non exclusive purchases through Rick.  Nside has top notch service and Rick will always go out of his way to help you out.  In the past he has even taken time to give me matching character key numbers and help me acquire the Attakus Exclusive Sandtrooper.

This 1000 piece edition features original Joe Johnston sketches of the X-Wing Starfighter photo-etched on aircraft-grade aluminum. The sketchplate gives insight into the development of iconic Lucasfilm creations as well as providing historic details. Full piece measures approximately 8 inches by 5 inches. The sketchplate itself measures 7 inches by 3.35 inches. Sketchplate is mounted on a foam core spacer "to float" on the black acrylic backer. For Comic Con attendees, we are offering a pre-order for pickup option. This piece is not exclusive to Comic Con and will be available online to non-attendees beginning July 25th.

That's pretty cool looking. I'm liking these sketchplates, at least these first two. I'm glad they didn't just stick to McQuarrie's concept art. Johnston did some really cool stuff that was shown in the "Art of..." books back in the '80s.

Dave,

Well, I ordered them all. I'm a sucker for almost any kind of artwork/poster/print, especially if it's under $100. I've got around 75 posters all rolled up in my closet that I hope to someday, someday have a place to hang.

And that number doesn't include my Dorman prints, any other ACME giclee prints and of course my key cels. I've got a TON of artwork here at the house.

If you follow this link, I have quite a few pictures of them available... but it's not a pretty webpage, I haven't done that in a while, it's just a list of links to photos. And this list is quite old, and probably doesn't even scratch the surface. But it will give you an idea of what I've got. Kind of. Almost.

Nice haul, jokabofe!!   I especially like the Jabba and X-Wing pilots ones.   I went to Acme and they also have a Cantina Wise Guys...they look great!    I'm really tempted to get them but I'm stretched way too thin already with all the GG Exclusive Busts and Maquettes this year.    I have a friend that's going to try to print them....he works at a graphic design office and they make all type of advertising media.   I know they won't come out anything close to the real thing, but it's the best I can do right now.    Plus it beats just having a jpeg on my computer.    ;)

I thought so too but he made a White T-Shirt with the Jabba "Don" on the back...and it looks simply awesome.   Now, I'm bugging him to make me the Cantina one too.    I'll never wear it because I'm afraid of it fading but it looks great.

Its all in the layout. The character keys are done where there are multiple layers and the giclee is all on one or thats how it looks when I compare the two I have to my character keys.

Here's my light of the Jedi.  I also have the Sith one.

Pretty sure it was 5" x 7" but I'll check when I get home from work, if I don't pass out first. I ordered a shitload of them (like 40) so that I would have enough to cover what ACME has coming out for the time being. I might still have a link to the frame, again, if I can find it I'll post it here.

can someone tell me the difference between a character key and a giclee, besides the price. i have the grand moff tarkin character key but i was thinking of getting a giclee and wanted to know the difference in size and if it is an animation cel type art like the character key.

A Character Key is printed on cell using Lithograph process and floats on a background like Josh mentioned, while Giclee is the name of another printing process.  Giclee has a higher resolution that Lithograph, so it is used more on larger pieces to avoid blurring and anti-aliasing.  Look that the interview part ii I had with Acme back in September.  It's in the middle of the interview.

Part II

'fox - the frames I purchased were 6" x 8" and made by a company called MCS. I just checked the WalGreens website and they no longer have it listed... oh no. What am I going to do when I use all of mine up and still have keys to display  :o  :'(

THEY also dropped a couple of really KICK ASS prizes we plan to use for TotM, Sandblast or whatever else we see fit to do with it. One thing is for sure, it's going to ONE of you!!! I thank the people at ACME for helping us all the way across the board as the only other major manufactuerer that gets behind our efforts is Sideshow Collectibles.

Don't like the Brood one but Acme bounced back with a nice Leia one after completely f*****g up the Luke one.

BTW, it that Ralph McQuarrie's version of the Falcon in the background of the Leia key?

Yo I'm sittin on top of the- It's more than a feeling ain't it?

Pardon me I must say, I'm kinda like a big deal...

What did happen with the Luke one?   I'm sure I ordered it but I didn't get an email confirmation and the charge isn't on my credit card.   Was it canceled?
