This week collectors had were given the chance to order multiple items from all the major collecting companies from any license they really would want to buy from. These companies literally covered all my favorite licenses this week with The Lord of the Rings, Marvel, and Star Wars. Needless to say this was a great week for collectors on top of a great film like The Avengers coming out.
Now what exactly came out and from whom:
Sideshow Collectibles – Sideshow released the first statue from what is sure to be an amazing line of statues from the Star Wars saga. Darth Maul is the first character from the new Mythos line which gives us a look at the Star Wars characters we love but in moments we didn’t see in the films or cartoon. Maul in his statue is obviously training as he prepares to do Darth Sidious bidding in tearing apart the galaxy. The price for Darth Maul is $250 with a $25 NRD and a shipping in October of 2012. Do so now before its too late and you’re left holding the bag.
Weta Workshop – The folks at Weta released the third statue in their mini-statue line of characters from The Lord of the Rings. The character who is joining the line up of characters is none other than that ranger known as Strider. This amazing statue is such a great representation of the character and happens to be from a moment when we first meeting him both in the movie and book. The price for Stirder is only $75 and he won’t be shipping until September/October of this year so please make sure you get this statue.
Hot Toys – Hot Toys has given us the next character from this summer’s amazing move The Avengers with The God of Thunder himself Thor. This version of Thor is pretty awesome and I think a bit better than the first figure of the character. Thor comes with multiple hands and the cosmic cubes holding tube which will run you $200 but he won’t be shipping until December of this year. You can order this through Sideshow Collectibles or your favorite etailer.
Gentle Giant – Another item from The Avengers comes to us from the folks of Gentle Giant. The Mark VII suit that Tony Stark breaks out during the movie is the first mini-bust from Gentle Giant for The Avengers. Right now the image is just a conceptual photo from the movie but it gives you an idea of what it will look like. Also if you order this weekend it will only cost you $59 with free shipping and starting Monday it will bump up to $85.
The awesome folks at TheOneRing.Net have another review for the really fantastic line of statues representing The Lord of the Rings. The newest addition to this line is Arwen Evenstar who is the first female of the line and a great rendition of this character. Arwen is instock for both the regular and exclusive versions at $250 a piece. Get yours now and check out the review from TORN.
The folks at the TORN (TheOneRing.Net) have posted a review of Weta’s brand new Gandalf the Grey statue. Looking at the pics of this piece I would say if you’re a fan of The Lord of the Rings you should really add this to your collection. This is yet another amazing collectible from Weta so go check out TORN‘s review of Gadanlf and then grab one!

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.
The 2011 version of Sideshow Collectibles Spooktacular event has come to an end and what an event it was in 2011. Star Wars fans got plenty of love with multiple items and previews and Ringers also got a nice treat with a brand new maquette announcement. Marvel and DC fans were not left out either with amazing pieces coming from those licenses.
The Lord of the Rings maquette line got a great announcement and the first bad guy announced in this line so far with the Ringwraith/Witch King maquette. This awesome piece captures the Witch King as he’s on weathertop moving towards Frodo about to stab him. The exclusive item on this piece is a switch out right hand holding the dagger completing the Witch King look. The exclusive and regular will cost $250 and have a NRD of $25. This piece will ship to collectors sometime during Quarter 3 of next year.
Star Wars fans got several items for order as I said ranging from nearly every line that Sideshow Collectibles has. From the 1:6th line for an instock purchase fans get a chance to order the Utapau Shadow Trooper and a pre-order of the Holiday Yoda both of which I talked about already. Also in Sideshow’s production blog we got a great video of the upcoming The Phantom Menace Obi-wan Kenobi 1:6th figure. Premium Format collectors got a chance to order Grand Moff Tarkin and I-TO Interrogator Droid which is a stunning piece to add to your collection. Tarken and his droid will set ya back $350 with a $35 NRD charged within 24-48 hours after your orders have been placed. No edition size has been announced but this will be shipping in the second quarter of next year. Finally, a preview for those who collect life sized items with the Darth Malgus 1:1 figure from the new Knights of the Old Republic
Comic-Book collectors got a couple of really awesome pieces from the world of Marvel and DC. From Marvel we get the really badass looking Colossus Premium Format. Colossus will cost you $400 and have a NRD of $40 charged shortly after your purchase. The exclusive of Colossus is a switch out portrait and a really cool print to complete an amazing item. No edition size has been announced but he is due to ship in Q2 of 2012. DC and more specifically Batman fans get a chance to Pre-Order a life sized bust of the caped crusader himself. This bust comes with a price tag of $680 and a NRD of $68 charged after your purchase but you’ll have to wait until Q2 of next year to get your bust.
In this weeks Sideshow Collectibles Newsletter we got two really awesome pre-orders from the worlds of DC and The Lord of the Rings. Not to mention we got a preview of an upcoming Marvel item that was initially shown during Sideshow’s Comic-Con 2011 online event. The two items we got to pre-order this week are the truly amazing Joker Premium Format from Sideshow’s new DC license. This thing just screams crazy in a good way mind you and captures the Joker looking the way the Joker should. This piece has a price tag of $350 and a NRD of $35 charged after 24-48 hours of your order being placed.
The other item is the beautiful Arwen maquette from The Lord of the Rings. This maquette has an edition size of 500 pieces world wide on the exclusive and comes in with a price tag of $250 with a 25 NRD. Both items are must for collectors of that license. Finally, from the world of Marvel we get the next 1:1 bust with that being the Invincible Iron Man bust. This collectible will go up for sale next week in the newsletter. Stay tuned and I’ll keep ya informed.
