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.

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 3 brings us another collectible from this summers biggest film so far The Avengers. Teaming up with Legacy Effects Sideshow brings us the Mark VII 1:1 bust. This like the other Iron Man busts has a presence that you feel even through the pictures not to mention just looks plain cool. Detail wise it matches what we saw on screen perfectly and has a great price of $800 for something so cool looking. This collectible isn’t due to ship until March of 201 but does have a flex pay set up and a $80 NRD.

Hot Toys has announced the next figure in their line of 1:6th figures from this summer’s record setting film The Avengers. The character we’re getting a chance to order now is the main villain himself Loki. All we have right now is a teaser image but once details are put up and item up for Pre-Order I will make sure to let you know.
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.
