Weta Workshop at Comic-Con 2012 had several items straight from Middle-Earth. Some of their eye popping The Lord of the Rings items included the much anticipated Fellowship diorama series and the truly amazing looking Barad-Dur environment. Weta also introduced us to their 1:6th line of statues from the first of two films based on The Hobbit. Representing the start of the line you had characters such as Gandalf The Grey, Bilbo Baggins, Dwalin (my favorite), Balin, Bombur, and Thorin (Comic-Con Exclusive version). They also had some props from the film that will like these statues be up for sale come October. As, I just mentioned the Thorin you will see is their Comic-Con Ex version and a regular version minus a piece of his shield will be up for sale in October. Weta had one of the coolest booths at the Con this year with all the items and the Trolls who feature in the film and The Fellowship of the Ring.

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.
I’m late I know but I’m going to start recapping what we saw at Comic-Con today with pictures and video. Today, I start with the items from The Lord of the Rings that Sideshow had at their booth. The three big items this year were the Frodo and Sam statue in Orc Armor, the Sauron Premium Format, and the Ringwraith on Steed Premium Format. Enjoy the pictures and the video.
Day twelve brings us two items from the DC Universe in two different scales to boot. From Sideshow Collectibles we get the Poison Ivy Premium Format. This stunning collectible comes in with a price tag of $350, a $35 NRD, and changeout man eating blooms for the exclusive collector. No matter if you decide to get the exclusive version or the regular you will have time to save up or stretch things out with Sideshow’s flex pay plan. The other DC item folks can order is from Hot Toys and the next big thing this summer The Dark Knight Rises. The figure coming to collectors is Batman himself in DX format. This thing comes loaded with multiple sculpts for the face of the masked version, maskless sculpt, hands, and other goodies. This figure will set ya back $260 with a $26 NRD charged shortly after purcahse. However, you can also flex pay this figure which will help spread things out before its December release.
Day 6 of Sideshow Collectibles Online Comic-Con event brings us a great looking LSF and a preview of an upcoming DC Premium Format. The newest Legendary Scale Figure announced by Sideshow is from their The Dead license and is the character The Reaper: Death’s General. This is an amazing collectible that I had the chance to see last year during Sideshow Freaks party. It is totally worth the $1,000 price tag simply based on the size, detail, and presence it will have in your collection. This piece does come with multiple heads based on the picture I have for you, multiple switch out arms, and as I said detailed like crazy. Of course this has an NRD of $200 but you will then be able to flex pay the rest of it to save the hit on your wallet. Also teased today via their Facebook page is the an upcoming DC Premium Format of Poison Ivy. No other information is available but my guess is this will be at Comic-Con

The Wolf Predator comes at ya with a price tag of $300, $30 NRD, multiple portraits, and switch out arm holding a whip (for the exclusive). This awesome collectible is not due to ship until March 2013 so you have time to save or use Sideshow’s awesome Flex Pay program.

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.

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.
Yesterday, in the 12 Days of Sideshow Star Wars fans get treated with another superb collectible. The Star Wars statue line which will encompass star Wars characters at moments in which we never saw them on screen. The first character to get this treatment appears will be Obi-Wan Kenobi during his years between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. The statue will come with sculpts that merge an older Ewan McGregor and a younger Alec Guinness both of which look amazing. No word yet on when this will be released and what the price will be but I will let you all know.
You can watch the video on this new collectible at the 12 Days of Sideshow Page.
