IMG_2708-0

Comic books and fighting games are two of the seven great loves of my life, so when Capcom started making arcade games featuring the X-Men and various Marvel Superheroes a few decades back, I was hooked for life. And when a $200 Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Collector’s Edition went up for sale earlier this year with four statues and a set of Infinity Gems included, well… cue that “Take my Money” meme.

Even so, Logan remains among the most popular characters in the Marvel pantheon, with plenty of new collectibles coming our way in the coming months. Mezco and Hasbro both have classic Wolverine 6″ figures arriving this fall, and now Iron Studios is falling on the high-end front with two new statues: Iron Studios Wolverine and Weapon X statues are now up for order!

Sideshow Premium Format Spider-Man Statue

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!

Last year, Sideshow Collectibles released their 1/4 Spider-Man Premium Format Figure, which many collectors are considering the best statue of the character ever.

Thankfully, for those collectors who are looking for something a bit smaller–and a whole lot cheaper–Gentle Giant is swinging in with a uniquely cool Spidey of their own: the Collector’s Gallery Spider-Man statue is now up for order!
