Today, I have several of the pictures I took of the various Star Wars items at the Sideshow Collectibles booth during Comic-Con 2012. If you’re a Star Wars fan then you are in for a real treat with the number of items on display at this years show. I know I will be adding several of these items like the Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Darth Maul Mythos statues. I will also be adding several of the 1:6th figures like Darth Malgus, Clones, Bossk, new Darth Vader, etc. It was a good year for Star Wars.

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.
The seventh day of Sideshow Collectibles Online Comic-Con event brings us a brand new Marvel Premium format and a in-progress photo of an upcoming Star Wars Premium Format. The Marvel Premium Format coming to collectors in May of 2013 will be none other than the Scarlet Witch. The cost of the Scarlet Witch comes in a $350, a $35 NRD, but does have the flex pay option so you can save up for the release next May. If collectors decide to get the exclusive option you will have a switch out hand with her Hex Power ready to be unleashed. Marvel fans also got a preview of a upcoming PF with the Scarlet Witch. The character making a surprise cameo is the Vision Premium Format. The Star Wars PF that fans got a preview look at is a head sculpt of the upcoming Darth Malgus Premium PF. Hopefully this piece will be at SDCC in just a few days.
Day 2 of Sideshow Collectibles online event brings us a two-piece Premium Format from Star Wars. Fans are finally getting the long awaited duo of C-3PO and R2-D2. The exclusive (which sold out in mintues) gives us these two droids cleaned up and on separate bases while the regular version gives us these all dirty on a single sand base from ROTJ. Both of these will set you back $750 from Sideshow with the usual NRD of $75 charged within 24-48 hours of purchase. Sideshow is also offering the flex pay program so it will be easier for someone to afford. Don’t forget to use the affiliate links if you decide to order.

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.

Sideshow Collectibles via their Sideshow Experience and Facebook page have given fans of the Star Wars saga something to drool over. What might that be you ask? Well, its a preview of an upcoming statue in their Mythos line which started with Darth Maul. The character previewed you ask? It’s none other than I would venture to guess most Star Wars fans favorite Bounty Hunter Boba Fett. The video gives you a little insight into the making of this statue and I will include a pic from Sideshow that shows you a great group shot including Fett.
Check out the video at Sideshow’s great Sideshow Experience.
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.
Today, I have for your viewing pleasure a review of the Sideshow Collectibles Battle Droid 2-Pack. These were first shown around Comic-Con last year looking very impressive and came out in production as good. The 2-Pack really shows the steps Sideshow has taken in what they’re willing to give a go in 1:6th scale and that they will be willing to tackle more complex projects. This Droid set comes in with a price tag of $120 but includes two figures making it a great price of only $60 per set. The Exclusive set has a wait list which includes the special 1138 backpack, but the regular version of the set is listed as in-stock and can be shipped to your door in 24.
As always here’s the review and pics. Thanks for watching.
