Today’s Sideshow Collectibles Production Blog update comes jam packed full of stuff. We’ve got items from Star Wars, Lord Of The Rings, and AVP. From Lord Of The Rings we have a production sneak peek video which I will link to Sideshow Production Blog and the character you might ask? Well, Boromir Son Of Denethor is the character that will be next up on the Maquette line from Sideshow Collectibles. The Star Wars Previews are the Sandtrooper and Dewback figures from the 1:6th scale line. Each item will be sold separately with the Sandtrooper coming in at $135 and the Dewback at $300 which will have an NRD on $30.
The other item from Star Wars is the Stormtrooper Premium Format. This piece will only have a regular edition and cost $300 as well. Like other pieces this will have a NRD of 10% or $30. The Final item is the next Comic-Con Exclusive the AVP mask set. No price has been given yet but for those going it goes up Thursday and not going on Friday.

Alright in this weeks Sideshow Collectibles Newsletter we get two amazing Star Wars Preview and a chance to order the first of the Comic-Con Exclusives for 2011. The Comic Con Exclusive is the Cobra Ninja Viper with today being the Pre-Order for those going to Comic-Con and those not going tomorrow. Please use the links on the blog to order if you do.
Now, the Star Wars previews. The first is actually two in one with a deluxe Sandtrooper and a Dewback. These two pieces obviously go together and once done so will really set off the collection OT style. Fans will finally get a chance to set up the search for Skywalker have a amazing High End Dewback to do so. The other Preview is some more love for OT fans with a Stormtrooper Premium Format. As you can see from the preview Sideshow has smashed this one and it looks like a minature guy in armor.
All these items will go up for Preview next Tuesday and preorder next Thursday. So make sure to stay tuned to the blog and I’ll update you when these are ready to go.
Back in September Sideshow Collectibles announced their second retailer exclusive figure. This being a figure you could only get at places like Alter Ego Comics which is where I bought mine. The figure retails for $90 but can be had at Alter Ego for $80+ shipping. He’s pretty bare bones which is kind of a bummer but the overall figure is really nice and there is no announced edition size at this time.
As always thanks for checking out the pics and the review. Also don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube Page and follow me on Twitter which can both be found on the left hand side of the page.
This weeks newsletter brought us a brand new figure from the Star Wars 1:6th license. The newest figure is the blackhole stormtrooper but there is catch to this figure that we have only seen once with this line. You will only be able to get this figure through retailers unlike most figures where you can buy them through Sideshow’s very own web site. This figure should start to go up for order this upcoming week so make sure you keep an eye out on the blog and I will let you know.
On Tuesday Sideshow Collectibles previewed a couple of items that will be going up for Pre-Order in this weeks newsletter. The first item is the stunning Optimus Prime Maquette from Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen. This was one of the if not the best pieces at Comic-Con this past July. The Exclusive of Prime will have change out hands and be limited to 100 pieces world wide. The cost of the maquette will come in at $1200 but will have the flex pay option making it more affordable for anyone considering the piece.
The next piece is the newest diorama to be made a part of the Star Wars line of dio’s. This piece covers the battle of endor or the portion where the Ewoks help attack some Stormtroopers as Luke, Leia, Han, and Chewie figure out a way to stop the Emperor and Vader. While not one of the greatest battles of the saga this piece truly captures the coolness that you get when you have Ewoks kicking the crap out of Stormtroopers. This piece will cost $250 and have no exclusive but will have the Flex Pay option.
Tonight’s addition to the Blog is from the Gentle Giant booth. They had some really neat products this year especially their Sucker Punch items from a movie that I think is sure to be a hit next year when it lands in Theaters. Also from Gentle Giant you have several new Star Wars items including their remakes of the vintage figures from Kenner which while are a nice idea really aren’t that great.
