SDCC 2015 Field Report: Sideshow Collectibles
Our field reports from San Diego Comic-Con 2015 continue with…Sideshow Collectibles. Sideshow, man…Sideshow lately has really been bringing it hard lately. And they pretty much brought it all to SDCC. Starting with a new line of “concept artist” statues. Sideshow had two prototypes on display based on Ralph McQuarrie’s concept work on Star Wars: Boba Fett and a shield wielding Stormtrooper
Sideshow also had most of their recently announced DC Comics Premium Format figures on display at their booth. We finally got a good look at Wonder Woman and Batman from the Red Son line.
In addition to those, Sideshow showed off a fairly creepy Joker statue, Powergirl (hubba bubba) and the recently teased Supergirl statue. While I’m not so much a fan of the saluting pose, her hair “floating” around her really give her that bit of dynamism.
On the Marvel side of the Premium Format Figure street we have (amongst other figures) Cap from Captain America: Winter Soldier, Loki from the Avengers and two versions of Spidey.
Sideshow is also expanding it’s own line of sixth scale figure. Among the smattering of Marvel figures at the booth we’ve got Deadpool (with Headpool) and the recently announced Frank Castle figure…Punisher!
They had a bunch of non-Marvel sixth scale figures at the booth, too. Indy, for one, from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. I don’t mind admitting here Indy looks far better in person than he did in the production pics released awhile ago. It looks like they dealt with that issue with he was having with his hat.
And let’s not forget about the sixth scale Ash figure from Evil Dead 2: Dead before Dawn. Bruce Campbell never looked so righteous.
Another big sixth scale property for Sideshow is Star Wars. Not sure how that license works for sixth scale figures between Sideshow and Hot Toys, but Sideshow had a few of their own at their booth. The best of the lot being everyone’s second favorite Darth, Maul and the AT-AT Driver.
Sideshow also had on display an interesting array of R2D2 statues/mashups done by various artists. Far too many to show here, I’ve provided a sample of the more interesting of the lot. You can see way more at our Sideshow Collectibles gallery.
One of their more fascinating lines is their Court of the Dead statues. Sideshow had a surprising amount of statues from the line on display at the Con. The line is an eclectic mix of the fantastic and the creepy.
While I’m not a fan of He-Man at all, I gotta admit this new statue of Prince Adam is pretty cool. It’s a really sharp interpretation of the character. It’s got a real “Conan the Barbarian” kind of feel. If I was a fan of the fantasy genre, this one might be hard to resist.
However, the one I probably won’t be resisting? The one statue I’m most interested in (besides the fore Powergirl) is Red Sonja. Let me just say, I have no affiliation or attachment to the character, whatsoever. That is just one badass statue.
To see way more figures and statues than I could mention here, head on over to our Sideshow Collectibles SDCC 2015 gallery. You will not be disappointed.
