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 was a big day for collectors. Sideshow Collectibles, Hot Toys, and the folks from Weta are making collectors around the world very happy. The Lord of the Rings fans are getting a truly awesome treat from Weta with the announcement they will be making the environment Barad-Dur: Fortress of Sauron. Weta will be letting us know along the way the process to bringing this collectible to life and as soon as any info is out I will let you know.
Star Wars fans got a real treat from Sideshow Collectibles today via their Facebook page with a preview of the new 1:6th Darth Vader figure with reveal sculpt. No word on anything just yet on price or not but I would expect as we get closer to Comic-Con we’ll know more. Sideshow also via their Sideshow Experience page of an upcoming premium format for the character Hawkeye. Hot Toys and Sideshow have teamed up for one of Sideshow’s Comic-Con Exclusive in the USO Rescue Captain America 1:6th figure via their Facebook page.

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.

Well, the 12 Days of Sideshow have started again! As of now we’re only three days in and Sideshow has already made a couple of fanbases quite happy with awesome previews. Star Wars fans have gotten a preview for a very cool looking life size Darth Malgus figure from Knights of the Old Republic. Now word on price yet but as soon as I know I will make sure you know. GI Joe fans have also gotten a very interesting preview of an upcoming joe product or more specifically Cobra product. I’m not sure if its statue or premium format but I believe the character is Storm Shadow.
As always stay tuned and I’ll keep ya updated.
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.
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.
