Last Halloween, Sideshow Collectibles hit us up with a totally unannounced addition to their Spider-Man series: a new Premium Format Black Cat statue in her modern attire. For whatever reason–maybe due to not being shown for months prior to the pre-order, maybe due to having never appeared in movies, or maybe due to being the modern incarnation–that Black Cat pre-order didn’t generate a whole lot of hype. But now that it’s been released 10 months later, and the exclusive Black Cat Premium Format Figure is still available in low-stock, let’s take a look and see how Felicia turned out…Continue Reading →
Have you ever dreamed of owning a humongous, $675 quarter-scale statue of a female alternate dimension Deadpool who only appears in a couple dozen comics, slicing a bullet in half in midair and kicking a decapitated zombie head with dynamite in its mouth? If so (wait, does that person actually exist?!), Sideshow Collectibles has just the thing for you: the Sideshow EXCLUSIVE Lady Deadpool Premium Format Figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Well, this is an unexpected development! Over the weekend, I discussed Gentle Giant’s new Collector’s Gallery Spider-Man statue as a viable substitute for those who either didn’t have space for Sideshow’s amazing Spider-Man PF statue, or for those who missed out and couldn’t pay the aftermarket prices for it. But it looks like the latter isn’t really a concern anymore (at least for now), because the Sideshow Spider-Man Premium Format Figure is back up for order!Continue Reading →
For the past year-plus, Sideshow Collectibles has been hitting female statues out of the ballpark one after the next. And though she’s not necessarily a favorite of longtime classic comic book readers, the high-profile headliner superheroine Sideshow has going up for sale today looks like another home run to me: the Sideshow Collectibles Lady Thor Premium Format Figure statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
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 →
