Star Wars fans again are gonna be happy with what we’ve seen today during day 14 of Sideshow Collectibles Online Comic-Con Event. The items up today are the Snowtrooper 1:6th figure and the 1:6th E-Web cannon. The Snowtrooper comes in with a price of $150, exclusive vintage blaster (exclusive only), and you can flex pay this item if you need to. The E-Web cannon also costs $150 with the flex pay but makes for a great partner piece for any Snowtrooper display. Both items are due to ship early next year! Look for more picture next week when I make it to Comic-Con.
As the folks at Weta Workshop released their newsletter tonight it contained their two exclusives for this years Comic-Con. The first of their exclusives will be a statue of Thorin Oakenshield leader of the Dwarves you will see in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. This statue will have an Edition size of 700 pieces world wide with 500 of them being sold at the Con. Thorin will cost $250 and be limited to only two pieces per day during the Con to make sure fans get a chance. The other is an art print similar to the teaser poster for The Hobbit. This print by Gary Hunt will have 100 copies signed by Mr. Hunt while the other 400 will be sold without the signature. A limit of 2 per person will also be put on this collectible.

Day 13 of Sideshow Collectibles Online Comic-Con turned out to be lucky for fans of The Lord of the Rings, DC, Star Wars and Avatar. Fans of The Lord of the Rings get to finally pre-order the Twilight Witch-King statue from The Fellowship of the Ring. This superb statue is a great counter part to the Ringwraith statue released previously in this range of collectibles. The Witch-King will cost $275 with a $27 NRD but you do have the Flex-Pay program to save up for the March 2013 release. Fans of the Star Wars Saga get a pre-order and a preview during day 13 of the event. The Pre-Order is the cooler of the Fetts in my opinion in Jango Fett with a 1:1 bust. This highly detailed bust will cost $800 with a $80 NRD as always you have the flex pay program to help defer the costs until the February 2013 release. The preview is for my personal favorite Jedi in the Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi. No details other than this great preivew below but as soon as I get more info I will pass it on. DC fans get a preview of the upcoming Catwoman Legendary Scale Figure and Avatar fans get a preview of the life size bust of Neytiri.
Day twelve brings us two items from the DC Universe in two different scales to boot. From Sideshow Collectibles we get the Poison Ivy Premium Format. This stunning collectible comes in with a price tag of $350, a $35 NRD, and changeout man eating blooms for the exclusive collector. No matter if you decide to get the exclusive version or the regular you will have time to save up or stretch things out with Sideshow’s flex pay plan. The other DC item folks can order is from Hot Toys and the next big thing this summer The Dark Knight Rises. The figure coming to collectors is Batman himself in DX format. This thing comes loaded with multiple sculpts for the face of the masked version, maskless sculpt, hands, and other goodies. This figure will set ya back $260 with a $26 NRD charged shortly after purcahse. However, you can also flex pay this figure which will help spread things out before its December release.
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.
Today, during the 9th day of Sideshow Collectibles Online Comic-Con event fans get the second SDCC Exclusive Pre-Order as well as what is now a classic video game character. The second Comic-Con Ex that has gone up for order is the Hot Toys USO Captain America Rescue figure. Cap comes with a price of $220 but does have a flex pay plan if you need to use that. The classic video game character fans get a chance to add a high end collectible of is Duke Nukem himself. This cult classic figure will run $300 with a $30 NRD but will not be shipping until April of 2013. The Exclusive on Duke is a switch out head in his “kick ass and gum chewing” mode.
