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’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.
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.

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.

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.
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!
