#SDCC17: Sideshow’s Court of the Dead Launches New 9” Collectibles Line



It’s no secret we’re huge fans of Sideshow Collectibles’ Court of the Dead line, but there’s no denying that you need a LOT of shelf space for the figures. Some help is on the way, however, as today Sideshow is proud to announce a brand new collectible format addition to its original Court of the Dead collection: The Prestige Statuette.

These 9-inch figurines offer an exciting, space-conscious means to collect Sideshow-level sculpted detail, nuanced expression, and storytelling base environments.

The Prestige Statuettes were developed with the renowned design studio Pure Arts. Founded in 2008 by Hugues Martel, Pure Arts is known for its Assassin’s Creed and Mortal Kombat collectible figures.

The introductory set features three linchpin characters in the Court of the Dead universe:

Xiall – Osteomancer’s Vision Prestige Statuette
Gethsemoni – Queen’s Conjuring Prestige Statuette
Kier – Valkyrie’s Revenge Prestige Statuette

These fierce and beautiful ladies are the respective leaders of the three Underworld factions: Bone (Xiall), Flesh (Gethsemoni), and Spirit (Kier).

“At this smaller scale, we are able to realize a level of detail that is as strong as our larger formats, while accommodating smaller collection spaces,” says Tom Gilliland, Sideshow Chief Creative Officer and creator of the Court of the Dead. “What we’ve designed is akin to a miniature scene. Each Prestige Statuette includes secondary characters – creatures, familiars, and foes – that bring an added dimension to each scene.”

“The storytelling ability of diminutive formats is one their most impactful traits,” he adds.

Check out your first look at these figures below, and look for LOTS more over the coming days during SDCC.
