Pre-Order Alert: Sideshow’s Black Cat by J Scott Campbell



This is one Black Cat you want to cross your path!

It’s been quite some time since Sideshow Collectibles has released a new statue from their J Scott Campbell Spider-Man collection.  But now, almost a year since Spider-Man himself went for order, comes the 4th statue in the series — Black Cat!

This statue is based on a print Campbell has sold for several years at conventions, featuring Felicia Hardy, the Black Cat, playing with her favorite ball of yarn–Spider-Man.  More, this statue comes in an exclusive edition with an extra accessory–a sculpted cat to rub up against Black Cat’s leather boot!

The statue stands 9-inches high with Black Cat in her crouching pose, and weighs about 8 lbs.  It is expected to ship the second quarter of 2016.

The Campbell Spider-Man statues have had astoundingly high edition numbers…and all sold through!  The Mary Jane comiquette had 6,000 pieces ship–and is sold out!  The exclusive edition of Spider-Man sold out as well.  The other statues, Gwen Stacey, Spider-Man, and the alternate Spider-Man in Classic Colors have all gone back to pre-order status after shipping!  It’s astounding, but these statues have been some of the most popular Marvel items from Sideshow Collectibles in years!

So what are you waiting for?  Head to Sideshow Collectibles and order yours now!

Sideshow Collectibles has released a teaser image for an upcoming Marvel Comics based statue of Spider-Man’s sometimes-lover sometimes-advisory The Black Cat.

cache_918x768_images_Galleries_Sideshow Collectibles_Gwen Stacy Comiquette by J Scott Campbell_with Mary Jane and Emma Frost_Sideshow Colectibles J Scott Campbell Collection Mary Jane and Gwen Stacey Comiquettes with EmThis statue is the fourth release in Sideshow’s collection of Spider-Man and his girlfriends.  All four statues are based on art by Marvel cover artist J. Scott Campbell.

While Black Cat, real name Felicia Hardy, is not an A-List Marvel character, her solid fanbase has already garnered her a number of statue releases.  In addition to the mini-busts by Diamond Select Toys and Gentle Giant, plus statues by Bowen Designs, Sideshow has already released three Black Cat statues:  The Black Cat comiquette based on art by Adam Hughes, The Black Cat quarter-scale Premium Format Figure, and the Black Cat Legendary Scale Bust.  All three previous Black Cat statues have been long sold out from Sideshow’s site and collectors had to go to eBay to order.

This new Black Cat statue differs in style from the previous releases not only in that it is modeled after Campbell’s art, which often features exceptionally tall and thin representations of characters, but also in that her pose appears to be more sultry and seductive.  The previous Sideshow Black Cat statues featured the criminal in an act of theft, while this one appears to be in a lascivious position.

The previous statues Sideshow has released in their J. Scott Campbell collection have been gorgeous-looking pieces.  The podcast Marvelicious Toys has done video reviews of both the Mary Jane statue as well as the Gwen Stacy comiquette.  The Mary Jane review was exceedingly positive; the Gwen Stacy review noted a persistent design flaw that caused the statue to repeatedly fall and break.  It’s hard to tell from this preview image but collectors should hope that Black Cat is on a solid base and not imbalanced.

preview_BlackCatComv08Sideshow had previously released a logo teasing the Black Cat statue’s release.  In that image the feline felon was on all fours on a bed.  This new tease promises a pose somewhat different from that original image, and it’s difficult to tell if this final design will feature her on a bed.  If so, the design may be a nice counterpoint to Campbell’s Mary Jane statue.

All three previous J. Scott Campbell Spider-Man statues are released and shipping now from Sideshow Collectibles.  You can get a head start on your collection now so the display is ready when the Black Cat arrives!
