Today, I’ve got more from the Sideshow Collectibles booth with their Marvel and DC items. Sideshow this year showed again they’ve got the skills when it comes to Marvel and really surprised me with a DC offering that I will be getting a few from. Marvel wise the Iron Man Mark VI LSB was fantastic to see in person as was the Hulk Maquette from The Avengers. Maybe the most impressive Marvel piece though was the LSF of Dr. Doom himself and has been shown on Sideshow site this item will have switch out sculpts. DC fans should be jumping for joy with the items that Sideshow had at Comic-Con with the Superman 1:1 bust, Superman PF, Batman PF, Green Lantern PF, and the amazing 1:6th figures Sideshow had on display. These comic based figures are a must if you’re a fan of these characters. As more info is released on them I will make sure you know.

Today’s Sideshow Collectibles Newsletter is full of Marvel and DC goodness! From Sideshow Collectibles we get the Magik comicquette. This collectible will cost $280 for the exclusive with an NRD of $28 but you will have time to save up the rest as she won’t be shipping until quarter two of this year. The exclusive version of this piece comes with a switch out sculpt to make this a Darkchild comicquette. Hot Toys brings the amazing looking Red Skull from this Summers Captain America: The First Avenger. The Red Skull comes in at $200 but does have free domestic shipping from Sideshow Collectibles.
If you’re a fan of DC then the last day of the 12 days of Sideshow brought a great bit of news. During the last day on Wednesday fans got an amazing video of many of the items Sideshow has planned for the Justice League. The video showcased items like a Batman comic Premium Format, life-sized Superman bust, etc.

Alright, after having this for a while I’m finally reviewing the Hot Toys Superman figure. As I said in my video this is one of the best Superman figures ever and even more so because part of the money goes to the Christopher Reeves foundation. While maybe a bit lighter on extras the detail, paint, and outfit of the figure really put this thing over the top. He’s still in-stock at Sideshow and if you’re wanting to add it to your collection do so now!
Late last night Hot Toys announced that they will be making figures for the upcoming Green Lantern movie. These figures should look kick ass! IF you’re a fan of this character you will want to stay tuned to the news for when these figures start going up for sale.
