Ordinarily I’m super-depressed when it’s a slow Marvel toy news week and there’s nothing to talk about, but since I’m dealing with major flood damage at home this week, I’m mostly okay with it. Sideshow Collectibles has their eye on all our dollars during their Spooktacular event this week, however, and following up their lightning-fast sell-out Phoenix from Monday, the Sideshow Exclusive Wasp Statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
While the Marvel Cinematic Universe may be where the majority of mainstream fans know their superheroes from these days, Sideshow Collectibles still produces far more comic book-based Marvel statues than MCU movie-based ones. Only extremely popular movie characters tend to get Sideshow Marvel Maquettes—and with that in mind, the latest addition to the line should surprise no one: the Sideshow Exclusive Iron Man Mark III Maquette limited to 500 pieces 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 →
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 →
Pop Quiz! What’s purple and blue, stands thirty-two inches tall, has light-up LED eyes and chest, and is limited to just 750 pieces produced for the entire world? Yep, you guessed right–it’s the Sideshow Collectibles Sentinel Maquette Statue that we last heard an update on way back in 2014! Production certainly wasn’t fast on this beast, but it’s finally complete and shipping out this month! Let’s take a look at the final production photos and see if it was worth the wait…Continue Reading →
Everything’s coming up Deadpool! Yesterday I posted my review of the very well-done Hasbro Marvel Infinite Series Deadpool 3 3/4″ figure, which is the only new Deadpool action figure expected to be released at mass retail in advance of this movie’s “Deadpool” movie by Fox.
But while it’ll be found mostly online and in specialty stores, there’s one new Wade Wilson collectible just released that blows all the others away! The Sideshow Deadpool Sixth Scale Figure has just started shipping, and the unboxing photos show that this masterpiece was worth the year-plus wait!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 →
If you’ve been asking yourself the question: “What do you get for the Iron Man collector who already owns every Iron Man Mark 43 figure that costs less than $2,000?”, then you’re about to owe Sideshow Collectibles a big, fat “Thank You!”
The 42″ tall, 35 pound Sideshow Legendary Scale Iron Man Mark 43 statue is now up for order, for the *cough* “low, low price” of just $2,299.99!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 →
Here’s a Marvel toys fact that may blow some minds: even with the increasing multitude of Sideshow Collectibles Premium Format Figures being released each year, there’s only been one classic red-and-blue Spider-Man Premium Format Figure released. Ever. That was way back in 2006, and that Premium Format Spider-Man sells for over $1,200 these days. But there are some characters that once just isn’t enough for, and Spidey is one of them: the new Sideshow Exclusive Spider-Man Premium Format Figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Finally, the big day is upon us! The day that we’ve all been waiting for for nearly three years–the U.S. release date for the Avengers: Age of Ultron movie! Avengers-mania is in full effect, with mountains of high-end and low-end product wherever you look, and Sideshow Collectibles will be adding one more drop to the flood themselves to celebrate the end of the Phase II MCU: the Sideshow Collectibles War Machine Maquette goes up for order today! But as much as War Machine rocks, he also comes at a heavy price…Continue Reading →
As far as I’m concerned, Peter Parker’s OTP is with Gwen Stacy. But if Gwen were to be dead (and she usually is), then I would have no problem getting together with my next-favorite Spider-Man related female: Felicia Hardy, the Black Cat. Sideshow’s latest Black Cat statue has been a long time coming (as in “Sideshow teased it both to kick off 2015 and to kick off 2014″), but today is the day that collectors can secure her coming to their homes: the Sideshow Exclusive J. Scott Campbell Black Cat statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
