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 →
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 →
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 →
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 →
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 →
Now that the clock has officially ticked over to 2016, Sideshow Collectibles (just like every other toy manufacturer out there) is looking to get collectors pumped up for a new year of high-end collectibles!
And this year, Sideshow is planning to entice collectors with brand new quarter-scale statues of a trio of Marvel’s most iconic heroines, Sideshow Premium Format Gamora, Dark Phoenix and Captain Marvel statues! And oh yeah–Sideshow also has a(nother) HULK!Continue Reading →
Though he’s typically considered to be Spider-Man’s greatest villain because of that one thing he did over 40 years ago, I am not now, nor have I ever been, a Green Goblin guy. But with merch like this, maybe I could learn to be!
I had zero expectations for the Sideshow Premium Format Green Goblin statue that went up for order today, but this loftily-priced piece is one of Sideshow’s most dynamic and incredible-looking Marvel statues ever…Continue Reading →
Generally, Sideshow Collectibles likes to build up to an upcoming Marvel Premium Format Figure statue’s pre-order for at least a week with various previews to build anticipation.
But in honor of today being the night before the spookiest holiday of the year, a villain has appeared suddenly like a phantasm, and it’s the most popular Marvel movie villain of all: the Sideshow Premium Format Loki statue is now available for order!Continue Reading →
Without a doubt, one of the most out-of-nowhere Marvel collectibles of 2015 was the new Sideshow Wolverine Premium Format Figure, which popped up for sale in June after absolutely no previews or even rumors from Sideshow Collectibles.
But let’s face it, Logan’s a fighter, and he wouldn’t be happy without a mortal enemy to brawl with. And luckily, just such an adversary is on the way: the Sideshow Exclusive Sabertooth Premium Format Statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Sideshow Collectibles has made it no secret that they were planning on making variants of their new-for-2016, gravity-defying Spider-Man Premium Format Figure. In fact, before ol’ classic red-and-blue Spidey even went up for order, an image had already leaked out of a Black Costume Spider-Man Premium Format statue.
At SDCC 2015 last month we got our first official look at the piece, and now the day has arrived that black costume fans can finally claim their Spidey of choice: the Sideshow Premium Format Symbiote Spider-Man statue goes up for sale Thursday afternoon!Continue Reading →
We’re a scant two weeks away from San Diego Comic-Con 2015, which means that the most exciting part of the year for Sideshow Collectibles collectors has arrived! Things have been mostly quiet on the Sideshow Premium Format Figure front for the past few months, but it looks like business is picking up once again–and with a character choice that is probably going to surprise a lot of people: the Sideshow Exclusive Brown Costume Wolverine Premium Format Figure Statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
