The 11th day of Sideshow’s Online event brings us an awesome looking GI Joe figure and a 1:1 bust from the Marvel Universe. The 1:6th GI Joe figure is the last of this years Comic-Con Exclusives. Lt. Falcon is the character that’s been chosen to be the exclusive figure and he will come with a price tag of $135. Also this is an in-stock purchase so he will ship within 24 hours of your purchase. From the Marvel Universe fans of The Red Skull finally get a chance to add a life-sized representation of the character to their collection. That’s right! The Red Skull has been turned into a 1:1 bust. This bust comes with a price tag of $600, a $60 NRD, January 2013 release date, but does have the Flex Pay program so it will make it easier to get this collectible.

First review in a while and this time we got to Sideshow Collectibles GI Joe 1:6th license with the character Rock N Roll. This is a great figure and yet another job where Sideshow shows they have the skills to really kick butt in the 1:6th figure realm. I truly believe this is the best figure from this license when you look at sculpt, paint, detail, extras, etc. It was $135 well spent so make sure you get this figure before he jumps up in price.
Today via their production blog Sideshow Collectibles has given us information and pictures regarding the upcoming Iron Man 2 Mark VI LSB and the Nazi Zombie Premium Format. The Mark VI LSB will cost $350 and will have a $35 NRD charged within the first 24-48 hours after purchase. The other amazing item from Sideshow is the Nazi Zombie PF which comes with an awesome second portrait for the exclusive version. Both the regular and exclusive will cost $350 with a $35 NRD.
Hot Toys also had a pretty cool announcement. They announced via their Facebook page the second figure from their The Avengers line up of 1:6th figures. Hawkeye follows up the impressive Nick Fury figure which is already available for purchase.
Today’s Sideshow Collectibles newsletter is packed with great information. Collectors of The Nightmare on Elm Street series get to add a great looking Freddy Krueger Premium Format. Marvel fans are going to storm Sideshow’s site tonight to get their hands on one of the best looking female PF’s that we’ve seen to date with the Storm PF. If you’re a fan of the World of Warcraft then you will want to make sure you figure out to fit the Arthas statue to their collections.
However, the big hit of this newsletter is the announcement of the Snake Eyes with Timber 1:6th figure set. This is the second time Sideshow has done the character of Snake Eyes in this format but the first time we’ve gotten him in this outfit. Just from what we can see in the preivew this figure is going to be an absolute must have for any Joe fan. Snake Eyes will preview on Tuesday with the pre-order next Thursday.
Thank you everyone who takes the time to check this blog out! You help make all the time put into giving you the news worth it and are the reason why I love sharing my passion. I hope that 2012 is a fantastic year for you and one you’ll never forget for good reasons.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 21,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Recently, the latest GI Joe figure from Sideshow Collectibles hit my collection with that being none other than General Hawk himself. Hawk is one of my favorite old school GI Joe characters and having been so impressed with the proto I can say that this really matches the proto. This figure really shows the steps Sideshow has taken this year with their paint apps and where they’re headed in the future.
Yesterday, in Sideshow Collectibles Newsletter we got pre-orders, previews, and surprise items up for grabs. For Pre-Order folks can snag the very cool Invincible Iron Man 1:1 bust that was shown all the way back to Comic-Con 2011. This awesome Iron Man collectible is gonna cost $750 with a $75 NRD but start saving up now and getting it in Q2 of 2012 shouldn’t be a problem. The surprise items that folks can pre-order are from the worlds of Star Wars and GI Joe. From Star Wars we get two figures from Medicom the R5-D4 and 4Lom figures both of which did look quite nice at Comic-Con 2011. The GI Joe or more specifically Cobra item is the Desert Officer. Now, this figure was at Comic-Con as well and man did he look freaking great and after receiving the Desert Sniper this figure is a must. He will set you back $100 bucks and will be shipping this month.
The big item in this weeks Sideshow Collectibles newsletter is a preview of the upcoming Boba Fett 1:6th figure. We’ve already seen a video preview of this figure during Comic-Con 2011 and this preview is sure to only amp up people wanting to add Boba to their collection. As a matter of fact Boba will be a PPO next Friday as Sideshow like myself expects this one to have a ton demand. So make sure you’re qualified for next weeks PPO so you don’t miss out.
The GI Joe Comic-Con Exclusive this year is the Ninja Viper. This figure is equally as awesome as the Red Ninja we received earlier in the line and he even comes with more stuff than his Red counterpart. As with the Red Ninja figures the detailing in the figure is really quite good and well worth the $130 price tag that this one cost. If you do no have this figure yet I would suggest not waiting long to get this one as it will only enhance your already amazing GI Joe/Cobra line Sideshow has given us so far. As always take a peek at the pics and review. Thanks for watching!
Today, I have the Cobra Desert Sniper for you to check out. I got mine earlier than today’s early arrival notice from Sideshow as a thank you gift for helping them out during Comic-Con 2011. I truly appreciate the gift and helping out was my pleasure as they helped me out with an issue. So this showed up at my door step and I have to say this is the coolest trooper we have gotten so far in the GI Joe line. Make sure you get this figure before its gone!
Tomorrow starts Comic-Con 2011. This will be my 7th year in a row going and I’m quite excited as always to get out there and cover the show for you all. As always I will be taking video and pictures of anything I see that I think would be cool to share. Thank you as always for checking things out and stay tuned.
