I've struggled to keep this one to myself. I kept thinking...after I'm assured I have the figure, then I can let the rest of the world know. Well, my responsibility to you got the better of me. Medicom has created this amazingly realistic 1/6 scale RAH Boba Fett figure. It's being distributed by Sideshow Toys in the US. If I can get my hands on one figure this year...this might be it. Get ready for the mad rush that will take place on Sideshow's website tomorrow at 10AM PST.
Sideshow began taking orders for the Buboicullaar Creature Pack this morning. As an add-on to the Jabba the Hutt environment, this Star Wars pack includes includes Bubo the frog-dog, a womp rat (2 in the Sideshow exclusive) and a rock wart.
I'm pretty sure that the average Star Wars fan had no clue of the name of the barking dog/frog creature (Buboicullaar) seen in the entranceway to Jabba's throne room. The creature pack will be the next figure from Sideshow's Scum & Villainy Star Wars line. The Priority Pre-Order will begin on Friday January 19th at 10am PST. Better get your mouse-clicking finger ready.
Sideshow Collectibles has announced that it has acquired the license to produce Spider-Man 3 related merchandise. Look for the company to put out their premium format figures, character busts and dioramas based on the popular Marvel comics character. Sideshow also has the distribution rights for Medicom's 12" Real Action Hero (RAH) series and their Vinyl Collectible Doll (VCD) figures.
Sideshow announced that they have acquired the license for the World of Warcraft line. No announcement as to what they will do (12" figures, premium format, busts), but fans seem to be divided. There are some who had hoped for a different announcement, others who have no clue what Warcraft is and yet even others who are excited by the license.
It was sad and shocking to hear that one of Sideshow's longtime employees, Diane Kamahele, suddenly passed away from apparent heart failure last week. She was only 42 years of age and is survived by her husband and three young children (Charlie Jr. - 8, Dylan - 6 and Keilani - 3). Sideshow has set up a memorial fund where 100% of all contributions will go directly to Diane's children for health benefits and their education.
Sideshow is now shipping their latest version of Al Pacino's infamous Tony Montana aka Scarface. This 12" figure is based on the final scene of the movie and includes 7 different sayings from Brian DePalma's classic film. Look for a review of this figure to happen in the coming weeks.
Just got word that Sideshow has started shipping their 12" Darth Maul figure to all of the folks who were lucky enough to pick him up. I must say that Episode 1 was probably my least favorite of the 6 Star Wars films, but this figure looks amazing. Lucas probably should have done a little more with this character.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans will always remember Angel (played by David Boreanaz) as the former vampire Angelus, not to mention the love interest of Buffy Summers. He was a cursed demon who had to leave happiness, and Sunnydale, or risk returning to his evil vampire form.
Once in Los Angeles (and on his own spin-off show), Angel formed Angel Investigations with a staff of human demon fighters. The group was dedicated to fighting evil, while Angel attempted to make up for the sins of his past.
This is the 3rd 12” Angel figure that Sideshow Toys has produced. However, it’s the first of their Angel line, based on the episode – City of Angels.
It’s tough to find any complaints with the packaging for Sideshow’s 12” collectible figure line. The box is loaded with a number of product photos, plenty of background reading, and live-action photos from the Angel television show. The front panel opens to reveal the figure and accessories behind a plastic window, giving collectors a choice in displaying options.
