In this age of Swine Flu or whatever they're calling it today, we need a hero. And Sideshow Collectibles is giving us a 12" undead one as part of their stellar Dead series. Ladies and gentlemen, here's a sneak peek at Subject 16566: The Butcher!
Of all the amazing collectibles that come out of the U.S. Toy Fair every year, Sideshow Collectibles is the one company that always seems to have the cream of the crop. This year is no exception; as you can see to your right, they’re finally coming out with a life-size Creature From the Black Lagoon bust later this year!
We’ve been waiting for a long time for Sideshow to finally fully reveal their Patient Zero premium format figure, and now I’m happy to say the wait is finally over.
There's no question Sideshow Collectibles puts out some really cool stuff, my favorite of which has always been their Dead series. Who doesn't want a collection of zombies on their shelf? Now it seems the Dead are going to be getting a little bigger!
I love that Sideshow has the presence of mind to create a series all their own that they can continue making ad infintum with any variations of zombie they can think of. That’s what we call forward thinking, fiends.
All right, so maybe I’m a little behind in pointing this out to you guys, but hopefully I’ll be forgiven since October is a notoriously crazy month for us, as you know.
We’ve still got over a month to wait before Sideshow Collectibles’ annual Spooktacular event rolls out, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to be holding all their new horror collectibles close to their chest.
Long before Marvel decided to kill and resurrect all of its most popular heroes for Marvel Zombies, the company had dipped its toes in the zombie pool with the series Tales of the Zombie, which ran from 1973-1975. Now Sideshow is celebrating Marvel’s first zombie with this badass collectible from Bowen Designs.
Over the last few years, Sideshow has really become known as the place to go to find amazing monsters and alien and alien toys and statues, but lest we forget, they got their start making vinyl and plastic replicas of Universal monsters. And this amazing Creature From the Black Lagoon statue will help us remember.
As our Comic Con gallery continues to grow (something tells me it’s not done yet), we keep seeing more and more cool shit we have to bring to your guys’ attention. This morning it is Death.
Another amazing figure came out of Sideshow’s display at this year’s Comic Con and while we’ve been saying they’re all badass, and they are, this one is just ... Damn.
Of all the images Nomad got with his camera walking around Comic Con, I was really surprised to only see one of this amazing statue coming soon from Sideshow. It’s Dracula throttling Renfield, which I’m sure he deserves, and as you can tell it’s a thing of beauty.
I’ll admit it, I’ve never been a big fan of the Species films. The premise is great; hot alien chick comes to Earth to mate and kill, but the execution never really stuck with me. One thing I can’t say I didn’t like, though, was the creature. This was truly a work of art!
Sideshow Collectibles usually has one of the biggest booths at Comic Con every year, so much so that you could almost call it a living area rather than a booth. But since they continue to make such kickass toys year after year, they’re fully deserving of it.
With San Diego Comic Con only a week away (July 23-27th), we are getting pelted with information on the show from all sides. It’s now become impossible to buy even half of the exclusives on sale there, as you’d have to be rich AND some are so limited, you’d need a small army just to stand in line for you.
