Next up is the artist proof edition. Don't need this myself. Curious about the price though, with no paint and fewer accessories.

Thinking of dropping Sgt. Santa. I only wanted him for the stogie head, tbh.

Pfft, if I got this, I'd keep it as is, and just call it "Snow Santa".

“Artist Proof” is pretty boring and unnecessary imo.

I’d rather have

Black Santa
Father Christmas
St. Nick Santa (old school 1800s version)
Hanukkah Harry
Or an Ice Santa(all clear version)

I wish regular Santa would have come with a pipe accessory. They're making a stogie Sgt. Santa it shouldn't have been a problem.

Looks like the next Santa, "Jolly Santa", will be black and come with gloved hands and a pipe.

Hmm... I will be ticked off if you have to buy another figure to get the pipe and gloves and you'd have to paint the hand to fit the regular version, as well. If it is an accessory pack that would be different.

I'm glad we're getting a black Santa, I'd been hoping that would be the next reveal. The pipe is great too (I suspect it's removable from the hand).

I’m with ya and am done playing the heavy-manipulation-disguised-as-marketing game. Hopefully they release an accessory pack with the pipe, gloves, and pipe-holding hand.

Have fun, all!

I'm not sure which option is more manipulative.

If they're an accessory with Jolly (black) Santa then the total price is $36 and they're probably included in place of another head.

If we're looking at an accessory pack, that's probably $20 plus $36 for Jolly Santa, which means more money spent for people going all-in.

Plus people that may feel like they need an accessory pack for every Santa they're buying.

That's why you should only buy a product based on what's being solicited. I like that initial Santa and I'm happy to buy it as-is. Sure, anything extra is fun, but I don't need gloved hands or a cigar for him and if such a thing is offered with another figure I'll judge that figure on its own and make a decision. It's easy to get caught up in what's not included as opposed to what is, which just doesn't seem like a fun mind set to me, but to each their own.

Fair point that both options are manipulation, but the accessory pack’s cheaper manipulation, so I’m better with it.

@Misfit, y’know, that’s a great rule to collect by. Truth be told, I pre-ordered the classic Santa and was totally happy with it - then was instantly annoyed when I saw gloves and the pipe being solicited with a different figure. It’s like Legends releasing Spider-Mans that don’t have all the hands they should have. It’s annoying, and because of that, it’s less fun - for me, anyway. Others’ mileages may vary.

But I AM excited for my classic Santa.

Have fun!

Damn, I'd pay an extra $10 to get Black Santa's head and hands in the same package as white Santa's head and hands. I'd like the option to display either without having to buy both.

Yeah, I'm all-in on this dream line and have everything pre-ordered, mostly in multiples.

Black Santa is great for the people who want it... but why are those usually the same people that tweet at Disney & Hasbro wanting to cancel toys that other people want like Slave Leia, hooded Cobra Commander, Cara Dune, etc?
