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 →
Sideshow Collectibles must have decided that today was a slow day and it needed shaking up, because Sideshow hit up collectors today with a huge surprise: an in-stock and ready-to-ship, totally unannounced, exclusive White Black Widow Premium Format Figure stature variant–limited to just 200 pieces produced! While it’s not the most limited Marvel Premium Format statue ever released, it’s certainly among the shortest runs. And if you didn’t order it in the two and a half hours it was available, you’re out of luck–the Premium Format Black Widow White Edition is now sold out!Continue Reading →
It’s not exaggeration to say that Sideshow Collectibles put thousands upon thousands of dollars worth of Marvel Premium Format Figures up for order in 2014. But of all the Marvel statues Sideshow solicited last year, there’s one that I’ve been anticipating the arrival of more than other. And though there are still some available for order, he’s finally arrived: the Sideshow Red Hulk Premium Format Figure statue has now been released!Continue Reading →
Believe it or not, it was almost a full year ago to the day that Sideshow Collectibles announced the fourth statue in the line of J. Scott Campbell Spider-Man Maquettes: Felicia Hardy, the Black Cat! But while collectors waited patiently for the entirety of 2014 for the first image of the Sideshow Black Cat statue to be posted, ultimately the Black Cat never made her debut last year.
Some wondered if Sideshow had given up on the J. Scott Campbell statues line and quietly (silently) cancelled it, but fear not: the very first image of the J. Scott Campbell Black Cat statue has now been revealed!Continue Reading →
When Sideshow Collectibles unveiled their amazing quarter-scale Iron Patriot and Iron Man Mark XLII maquettes last year, I was so lovestruck that I sincerely wished that Sideshow would tackle the other prominent Iron Man armors from earlier Iron Man movies. I should have been careful what I wished for, though, as Sideshow now has a multitude of Iron Man quarter-scale maquettes lined up to be released over the next few years. And going up for order later this week with jaw-dropping good looks (and a matching price-tag)–the Sideshow Iron Man Mark II Maquette!Continue Reading →
I love a good action figure repaint as much as the next guy, especially when it’s a well-done and fan-requested version of a character that collectors have been asking for. In the case of statues that cost hundreds of dollars, I’m a bit more picky.
So while I’m not jumping for joy at the existence of a red-and-black J. Scott Campbell Spider-Man, I totally respect those excited for this repaint: the Sideshow Classic Spider-Man Comiquette is now up for order!Continue Reading →
It used to be that you could count on any new Marvel line of toys or collectibles beginning with one of the “go to” headliner characters of Spider-Man, Wolverine, Captain America or Iron Man.
Things have clearly changed a little bit, as the hottest character at Marvel is a little bit less heroic (and a whole lot more insane!) and Sideshow is planning to capitalize! The Sideshow exclusive Deadpool sixth scale figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
In my eyes, Marvel Studios can just about do no wrong. But if they could do wrong, that wrong would likely be called “Thor The Dark World”. While I didn’t think that “Thor The Dark World” was bad, per se, it was definitely the lowest-quality Marvel Studios movie released thus far. Even so, there are three things I love about “Thor The Dark World” (in this order): Natalie Portman, Loki, and Thor’s new costume. Though I would have preferred the other two, Sideshow has crafted a killer new statue for one of these aspects: the Sideshow Exclusive Thor The Dark World Premium Format Figure goes up for order this week!Continue Reading →
We only talk about Marvel toys and collectibles here on Marvel Toy News, which means that I rarely get the pleasure of talking about concept art and designs for upcoming Marvel Studios movies. But today, I’ve got a news item that just barely squeaks into the realm of collectibles, as the originally-leaked image of this concept art was stamped all over with the word “Sideshow”–referring to one of the world’s biggest producers of high-end Marvel collectibles, Sideshow Collectibles. Based off that leaked image, it may be time to start looking forward to a Sideshow Avengers Age of Ultron Vision movie statue in 2015!Continue Reading →
For years, sixth scale collectors who love Marvel comics themselves and not necessarily the movies have felt left out in the cold and abandoned. Every exquisite new Marvel Hot Toys sixth scale figure released has been a little bit of salt rubbed into the wound, as increasing number of Marvel movie-based 1/6 figures are released year after year. But sixth scale collectors who are Marvel comic book fans won’t have to feel unloved any longer–at San Diego Comic Con 2014, Sideshow Collectibles announced the impending line of Sideshow Marvel sixth scale figures based on the comics!Continue Reading →
I was pretty lucky during the first ten days of Sideshow Collectibles’ Online Comic Con 2014 event. And by “lucky”, I mean that Sideshow didn’t put up a single item that I was going to be dropping hundreds of dollars on. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending upon your point of view), Sideshow hit the jackpot today with my wallet. Not only did Sideshow put the Hot Toys Bones Iron Man I’ve been lusting after for a year up for sale, but the humongous, long-awaited 32″ Sideshow Sentinel Maquette Statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
What’s red and green and grey, weighs over 110 pounds, and will cost you almost three thousand dollars? If you guessed the quintet of Sideshow Hulk Premium Format Figures put up for order over the course of the past year, you’re correct! Wait, did I say “quintet”…? That’s right! Today, Sideshow Collectibles astonished the Marvel collecting world (and made any Marvel Premium Format collecting completists left cry) when they revealed a totally unexpected new item–the Sideshow Exclusive King Hulk Premium Format Figure statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
The once-legendary Dr. Doom’s star has fallen a lot in recent years. Oft considered the greatest Marvel villain, Dr. Doom has been surpassed in the public’s eyes by characters such as Loki, Magneto and Thanos receiving more attention in modern movies and comic storylines. Even so, Dr. Doom is an all-time-great supervillain and beloved by hardcore comic book fans the world over. And that’s why he’ll also be Sideshow’s next major villain sculpture released–the Sideshow Exclusive Dr. Doom Premium Format Figure statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
It’s been an abnormally quiet news week, and that means it’s the perfect time for Sideshow Collectibles to try to claim Marvel collectors’ attention (and future dollars) with another pre-order! This time, Sideshow is finally ready to fully reveal a statue that it’s been teasing us with for several weeks now. When the Sideshow Iron Patriot Maquette arrives at the end of 2014 he won’t have to be lonely for long–the quarter-scale Sideshow Iron Man Mark 42 Maquette is now up for order!Continue Reading →
The Rule of Three is a writing principle that states that things that come in threes are inherently better than individuals or pairs of things. That rule must be what Sideshow Collectibles had in mind when they decided to go ahead with not one, not two, but three new Hulk Premium Format Figures in 2014! We’ve had the Sideshow Premium Format Red Hulk and Green Hulk statues go up for sale in the past two months, but if those weren’t for you, perhaps the third time will be the charm–the Sideshow exclusive Grey Hulk Premium Format statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
