My Top 5 (ish) things displayed in the Sideshow Collectibles SDCC 2014 Booth
And just like that…another San Diego Comic-Con has come and gone. Just like sand through an hour glass, life is…isn’t it? Philosophical mumbo jumbo aside, it’s time to look back and properly analyze all the tasty delights this year’s Comic-Con had to offer.
Starting off with…Sideshow Collectibles.
Power Girl statue. Without a doubt, the most outstanding feature on this statue is her hair. Your eyes are immediately drawn to it, are they not? I mean, just look at the sculpt of it. The amount of care and effort the sculptor put into Power Girl’s windswept hair is just tremendous.
White Queen Statue. Now, I already own Sideshow’s Emma Frost/White Queen statue based on Adam Hughes artwork, which is one of my favorite statues. So, adding this one to my collection may seem a bit unnecessary to the layman, if not redundant. However, upon closer inspection of this new White Queen statue compared to the Adam Hughes version, it becomes increasingly obvious to even the layman collector that this new statue only compliments the Adam Hughes verison.
Just don’t ask me how, ok?
Sixth scale Deadpool figure. See? And you thought I was just a perv who collected female statues. Wrong.
Batgirl statue. Ok. Well, maybe I am. What can I say?
Sixth scale Flash figure. I’m not the biggest fan of the Flash, but what I really like about this figure? The costume. I like the use of textures in it. The lightning bolts on the side of his mask, look like they’re done right, as well. “Pulled” back more and not sticking out as much. Oh…and the look on his face too. I think it’s a bit too cocky for Barry Allen, but it’s still cool, nonetheless.
Sixth scale Superman figure. Know what sold it for me on this figure? The heat vision eyes. A simple touch, that really makes all the difference.
Green with Envy Poison Ivy statue. This is one I could’ve kicked myself in the arse over. See, your friendly neighborhood jman missed out on the original edition of this statue. Well, that’s not exactly true…I didn’t miss out. I just chose not to buy it, too expensive at the time for me. And I totally regret it, seeing that the “regular” edition nearly doubled in value since she’s sold out. Not that that’s my reason for buying her, mind you (I mean, it’s pretty obvious why I’m buying her. Those creepy purple flowers at the base). Still, though, it sorta justifies the cost. A little.
So, when Sideshow announced this “special edition” Poison Ivy? There was no way on god’s blue marble I was missing out on her. Already have her on EZ payment plan. Besides, I think she looks much better with green skin then flesh toned.
I don’t even want to know what that says about my psychological makeup.
This is only a small sampling of what Sideshow Collectibles had on display at SDCC 2014. Check out more photos of these products, along with many more in our Sideshow Collectibles SDCC 2014 Photo Gallery. Up next? My Top 5 (ish) Things Hot Toys announced at SDCC.
