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.
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.

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.
