Sideshow Collectables – Hot Toys IG-11 1/6 Scale Collectable Figure

Sunday, May 24th, 2020

‘The Mandalorian’ is, save ‘Rogue One’, the only salvageable thing to come out of Disney’s acquisition of the Star Wars property. That’s why it’s actually worth taking a look at Sideshow Collectables and Hot Toy’s IG-11 1/6 Scale figurine. Based on the IG-11 Bounty Hunter droid featured as a character in ‘The Mandalorian’, the IG-11 figurine comes in at roughly 14″ tall, with over 29 points of articulation, including an enhanced waist articulation which allows for a full 360 degree spin, just like in the show. The metallic grayish-black armor exterior is painted with accurate weather effects, and molded with precise pipe and wire details, and the mechanical head piece features LED light-up function. The IG-88 figure comes complete with the following accessories:

  • One (1) pair of articulated mechanical graspers
  • One (1) heavy blaster
  • One (1) blaster rifle
  • One (1) leather-like double shoulder belt with ammo pouches
  • Specially designed desert-themed figure stand with Star Wars logo and character nameplate
  • Like all Hot Ones releases, this is a pre-order, with an estimated arrival of October – December 2020.


    Sideshow Collectables – M56 Smartgun Prop Replica by Hollywood Collectibles Group

    Monday, April 13th, 2020

    Hollywood Collectables Group has come out with another awesome movie-accurate prop replica weapon from Aliens, this time the M56 Smartgun, as wielded by PFC Vasquez in the film. Made of fiberglass, metal, resin, and mixed media, each M56 Smartgun prop is hand-painted and authentically weathered. They’re authentically-sized as well, coming in at 48″ long complete with a themed tabletop display stand; you’ll have to source your own rig and harness if you plan on carrying this one around.

    It is limited to only 600 units, with an estimated ship date between May and June 2020.

    Fun fact: the original M56 Smartgun from the movie Aliens was constructed from an MG42 rigged up with a steadycam harness and various motorcycle parts.


    Sideshow Collectables – The Child Life-Size Figure

    Thursday, January 30th, 2020

    ‘The Child’ aka ‘Baby Yoda’ is the breakout character in the recent ‘The Mandalorian’ Star Wars series. Given the character’s immense popularity, why wouldn’t Disney and Sideshow Collectables take the opportunity to release a $350 life-sized replica for all the fans to add to their collection? Coming in at 16.5″ tall, ‘The Child’ figure is made of plastic, resin, and fabric, with a tan fabric coat, and the shift knob from the Razor crest hidden away in its right hand. Like most Sideshow offerings, it’s available for pre-order for the initial release, with an estimated arrival between August and October of this year.


    Sideshow Collectables – Jack Burton 1/6 Scale Figure

    Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

    Sideshow has released a lot of awesome figures over the years, but in my (extremely biased) opinion, this one is easily one of the best: the 1/6 scale Jack Burton from ‘Big Trouble in Little China’. Coming in at 12″ in height, this highly-detailed figurine features a lifelike Jack Burton headsculpt (complete with mullet), multiple points of articulation, and some truly-impressive, movie-accurate clothing details, such as the laces on his boots, the included denim jacket, and even the stitching on his watch cuff.

    The figure comes complete with Jack’s semi-auto TEC-9 pistol, Gerber TAC knife, multiple hand configurations, and a “Guardian” accessory figure, AKA the floating eyeball creature.

    This figure is limited to 1500 units worldwide, and is available exclusively through Sideshow’s website.


    Sideshow Collectables – The Punisher (War Machine Armor) 1/6 Scale Figure

    Thursday, January 24th, 2019

    Ok, so it’s easy to be completely disconnected from the crazy, ever-shifting plotlines of modern comics, so in case you’re not familiar: the Punisher’s been a Frankenstein’s monster, given angelic powers, and most lately he’s taken up the mantle of Ghost Rider, and he raised a baby Thanos into a Punisher himself. So, a Frank Castle in War Machine armor is pretty tame by comparison, and given all that heavy weaponry, pretty appropriate. Manufactured by Hot Toys and sold by Sideshow, this War Machine Punisher figure comes in at 32.5 cm in height (~13 in), and features 30 points of articulation, as well as a helmeted head with LED ligh-up fuction and skull pattern. Plus, it comes with the following weapons and accessories:

    – Detachacble chest armor
    – Built-in shoulder missile launchers
    – Missle firing forearm armor
    – Two sets of interchangeable forearm inner armor
    – 4 pairs of interchangeable hands
    – Articulated shoulder-mounted mini-gun
    – Articulated back-mounted shoulder cannon
    – Ammo belt for mini gun

    This figure comes complete with a figure stand and interchangeable graphic card.


    Sideshow Collectables – Boba Fett Life-Size Figure

    Thursday, September 13th, 2018

    Boba Fett, who’s coolness factor way overshadows the relative ease by which he met his demise in ‘Return of the Jedi’, has been given the life-size replica treatment by Sideshow Collectables, in collaboration with noted prop replica specialists Tom Spina Designs. Standing in at over 6 feet tall, ligh up theme base included, this replica features authentically replicated armor, along with an articulated helmet with adjustable rangefinder, detailed fabric costume, light-up chest panel, and braided Wookie scalp; not to mention his weapons and jetpack.

    Ultimately, who among us wouldn’t want a life-size Boba Fett replica in their possession? The answer is: anyone who doesn’t want to spend $8500 on one. Yeah, the price is pretty steep, but, hey, at least the shipping’s free.


    Sideshow Collectables / Hot Toys – John Wick 1/6 Scale Figure

    Monday, August 27th, 2018

    The man. The myth. The legend. John Wick, the titular main character of arguably the best pair of action movies to come out of Hollywood in recent memory (with a third on the way), is receiving the Hot Toys treatment, with a 1/6 scale figure now up for pre-order, exclusively from Sideshow Collectables. Coming in at approximately 31 cm tall, the John Wick figure features a battle damaged head sculpt with movie-accurate facial expression and detailed hair, beard and skin textures. 30 points of articulation allows for a variety of poses, such as John’s CAR shooting stance.

    This particular figure is absolutely loaded with accessories. Although the figure is based on John’s look from ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’, it comes with weapons and accessories from both movies:

    – Compensated P30L with removable magazine
    – TTI-marked Glock 34 with removable magazine
    – Glock 26 with removable magazine
    – Kimber Warrior given to Neo John by Morpheus The Bowery King, complete with removable magazine and case

    – And, of course, a fookin’ pencil

    Also included are 10 pieces of interchangeable hands, two Blood Oath Markers, and gold coins, both individual and in a stack.

    This figure is expected to ship between July and September of 2019, with a price of $243.

The collectable is made of polystone, polyresin, ABS, and PVC, and comes in at $1100 with an estimated arrival of April 2019 – June 2019, so any pre-orders will be waiting at least a year for this one.


    Sideshow Collectables – Life Size K-2SO

    Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

    Rogue One was pretty great, and one of its best characters is K-2SO, the reprogrammed Imperial security droid with the snarky attitude. For those of us to whom money is no object, Sideshow Collectables is releasing a “life size” K-2SO figurine for you to proudly display in your location of choice. And when they say “life size”, they mean it; K-2SO stands at 94″ (~8 ft.) tall, and features weathered and detailed armor, red and yellow details on his shoulders and panels, and an Empire logo on his shoulder. The statue is made of fiberglass, resin, and non-descript metal, with a poseable head and light-up eyes.

    This is (understandably) a limited edition piece, with a hefty price tag of… wait for it… $8900. But, luckily for any prospective buyers, there’s an affordable payment plan; just $801 a month, and, get this, the shipping is free!

    Sideshow Collectables – The Force Unleashed Han And Chewbacca Figures

    Thursday, July 7th, 2016


    Sideshow Collectables and Hot Toys has further expanded their Star Wars Episode VII offerings with the Han Solo and Chewbacca sixth scale figures.

    They’re also available as individual pieces, if you only want one or the other, although buying them separately also forgoes one remote detonator and three thermal detonators for Chewie, and Starkiller base-themed base attachable for both figurines.
