Pre-Order Alert: Ralph McQuarrie Boba Fett Statue



Sideshow Collectibles’ 18.5-inch Concept Boba Fett statue is up for pre-order!

Ralph McQuarrie’s conceptual drawings and paintings were instrumental in bringing George Lucas’ epic space saga to the big screen, envisioning the vast worlds of fantastic heroes, villains, vehicles and aliens that would come to be known as Star Wars!

Inspired by Ralph McQuarrie’s pre-production artwork for Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present Boba Fett!

One of the first new characters to be designed for The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett originally began as a super trooper, with a striking aesthetic inspired primarily by Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers. As McQuarrie worked closely alongside Star Wars Art Director Joe Johnston, the character evolved into the ruthless Mandalorian bounty hunter we know today. Capturing the spirit of these early explorations, Fett appears in his original all-white armor with two unique helmet designs, leaping into action over a base inspired by the Slave I. Reviewing a broad spectrum of McQuarrie’s imaginative designs for Boba Fett, Sideshow’s artists have translated his iconic artwork in a brilliant homage to a Star Wars that is both familiar, yet never was.

Now you can own an 18-inch statue of this classic concept armor. Check it out now at Sideshow Collectibles!

Previous McQuarrie collectibles, like eFX’s McQuarrie Vader helmet and the Gentle Giant McQuarrie mini-busts have sold out fast and now command a premium. Don’t delay, order your statue now!

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!

Pre-Order Alert: Sideshow Collectibles’ Sentinel Maquette



Last year Sideshow Collectibles released their gorgeous, giant Galactus Maquette.  Now they have given Galactus a companion — The X-Men killer Sentinel robot!

This killer was originally conceived by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and has become a staple in X-Men stories including the recent film X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Three stories tall with tons of mutant-killing gadgets, these robots mean business!

Now Sideshow gives this character a giant collectible worthy of its fictional stature.  Standing 32-inches tall, weighing 20 lbs, this Maquette has a representation of the character in his classic purple and blue color scheme.  Plus he has light-up hands and swap-out heads with both classic and modern looks.

You can see a review of the Galactus Maquette in Marvelicious Toys Issue 99 and check out hundreds of photos in the Marvelicious Toys Photogallery.  This Sentinel is bound to have the same quality, and no X-Men fan’s collection will be complete without it!

A payment plan is available as low as $81 per month, so don’t wait, get your order in now at Sideshow Collectibles!
