Excitement in the high-end Marvel statue collecting community ignited three months ago when Sideshow Collectibles unexpectedly brought new upcoming quarter-scale statues of Venom and Carnage to New York Comic Con 2016. Last month, Carnage pre-orders opened up, and now it’s finally Spider-Man’s most popular villain’s turn–the Sideshow EXCLUSIVE Venom Premium Format Figure statue is now up for order! But Venom ain’t coming cheap…Continue Reading →
Have you ever felt like there was something missing from your life, and you couldn’t quite place what it was…? Well, perhaps Sideshow Collectibles has determined exactly what it is that your life has been devoid of (and perhaps not) with their final Marvel collectible pre-order of 2016! The Year of Deadpool concludes with an item I never even contemplated, much less expected to see produced: the Sideshow Deadpool Life-Size Bust is now up for order!Continue Reading →
With production costs of high-end statues exploding over the past few years, Sideshow Collectibles has wisely began producing new statue lines that are slightly smaller and way cheaper than their beloved, long-running 1/4 Premium Format Figures series. Iron Man kicked off the Avengers Assemble 1/5 series of statues last month, and Tony won’t have to wait long for some camaraderie: the Sideshow Exclusive Captain America statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Sideshow blindsided everyone when they made their biggest Marvel New York Comic-Con reveal of all-time back in October: new Premium Format Carnage and Venom statues scheduled for release in 2017! Hundreds of collectors worldwide have been saving up their pennies (and Sideshow Rewards!) for months in anticipation of the first pre-order for one of the symbiotes, and it’s come just in time for pre-Christmas: the Sideshow EXCLUSIVE Carnage Premium Format Figure 1/4 statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
In a high-end collecting landscape where a large number of collectors are running out of space (both display and storage) and 1/4 statue prices are skyrocketing, Sideshow is making the interesting decision to scale down for their latest Marvel line! The comic-based Avengers Aseemble statues line will be in the smaller and more affordable 1/5 scale, and the Sideshow Exclusive Classic Iron Man statue that kicks off the line is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Earlier today, I posted the official photos and pre-order information for Square-Enix’s Deadpool Play Arts Kai figure, which I knew I was going to hear some grumbles about the pricing of (because PAK are, well… pricey). The price on that item didn’t sting me too much, though, because I had the foreknowledge that a way more expensive Deadpool figure would be going up later in the day–and so it now has! The insanely dynamic Sideshow Exclusive Deadpool Heat-Seeker Premium Format Figure is now up for order—with a price-tag that’s as crazy as this statue’s aesthetic!Continue Reading →
Before Sideshow Collectibles blew our minds with their sickeningly cool Carnage and Venom Premium Format Figure prototypes at NYCC 2016, this claimed hundreds of my future dollars when they revealed their Premium Format Groot & Rocket Raccoon statue at SDCC 2016. The only question was when Sideshow was getting my money–and how much. And as it happens, now I know both: the Sideshow Exclusive Groot & Rocket Raccoon Premium Format Figures are now up for order!Continue Reading →
There was so much going on at New York Comic-Con 2016 yesterday that I almost managed to totally miss the two biggest (literally) Marvel reveals at the Sideshow Collectibles booth.
Luckily, obsessive-compulsion won out and I circled back to the booth to snap a multitude of hi-res photos of what are sure to be best-sellers: the Sideshow Venom and Carnage Premium Format Figure statues!Continue Reading →
Sideshow Collectibles didn’t unveil the plethora of new Marvel pieces at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 that they usually do, but the ones that they did show were some of the most jaw-dropping, gorgeous statues at the event. And one of those pieces was among the most impressive Wolverine (and Hulk!) statues that I’ve ever seen. I’ve been looking forward to it since July, but the day has arrived–the Sideshow Exclusive Hulk vs. Wolverine Maquette is now up for order! But all this magnificence comes at a monstrous price…Continue Reading →
It’s finally here: San Diego Comic-Con 2016 has arrived! Now, I know what the majority of readers want to hear about is new Marvel Legends, but there’s not much that’s new on display on that front–and there won’t be until the Hasbro Marvel Panel in a few days. But in the meantime, we’re going to kick off coverage tonight in a big way–by looking at some of the biggest Marvel statues on the floor! The Sideshow Collectibles Rocket Raccoon & Groot and Deadpool Premium Format Figure statues have now been revealed!Continue Reading →
We’re less than two days away from all eyes in the toy collecting world turning toward New York City, where the New York Toy Fair 2016 will begin this Saturday, February 13th! But that’s two days from now, and there’s a pretty big event for us Marvel fans happening one day from now: the opening of the long-awaited and longer-rumored Deadpool movie! And what better way to celebrate it than with a chance to win a free Sideshow Deadpool sixth scale figure?! Want to know how? Read on…Continue Reading →
Before the ridiculousness of the overblown #WheresRey campaign, fans asked a less preposterous question: “Where’s Gamora?” Despite a fair number of Gamora figures released in several major lines in 2014, she legit did have less merch produced and appear on less GOTG paraphernalia than any other main character in the movie. But now Sideshow is giving Gamora a smidge of revenge: the Sideshow Exclusive Gamora Premium Format Figure statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Although we’re now less than halfway through the first month of the year, Sideshow Collectibles is already mercilessly seeking out their chunk of collectors’ 2016 dollars. After putting over $1,200 in new Marvel statues up for order last week, they’re already at it again with another quarter-scale piece of one of Marvel’s hottest up-and-coming characters (who happens to be starring in her own movie in just two years): the Sideshow Captain Marvel Premium Format Figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
When XM Studios released their amazing Phoenix quarter-scale statue last year, collectors took note–and many paid $1,500 and up to own one of the beautiful statues.
Sideshow Collectibles apparently took note as well, and have now lined up a different–but equally impressive–Phoenix of a different color: the Sideshow Exclusive Phoenix Premium Format Statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
One good Hulk deserves another. And evidently, Sideshow thinks that three good Hulks deserve another, because after the enormous success of the three Premium Format Hulk statues they released last year, Sideshow has a new Avengers Age of Ultron Hulk Maquette going up for order this afternoon.
But if you wanna add this big collectible to your collection, you’re gonna have a big bill to go with him…Continue Reading →
