StarCraft – SideShow Collectible – Jim Raynor

SCJR1

Sideshow have really outdone themselves, they are creators of amazing pop culture items, and this one is at the top of the list. Sideshow’s upcoming Jim Raynor piece stands 15 inches tall, and is made from 525 individual pieces. With that many pieces its going to be movable and expensive, but totally worth it.

He’s posable, his visor slides down, the armour lights up in both the chest and vents, and he comes with a bunch of weapons, including his revolver, a sniper rifle and a Gauss gun. For $500 this is going to have limited run, worth it for those who love StarCraft and who doesn’t love StarCraft.

Sideshow Collectibles – Pacific Rim

SideshowPacificRim01

Sideshow Collectibles are one of the Best creators of Models and Memorabilia out there. They create the best collectibles of our favorite characters and icons from the worlds of film, television, comic books and popular culture. There are other cool manufacturers out there, but not as good as Sideshow Collectibles. As for Comic-Con that is the biggest convention of Pop Culture in the world which takes place in San Diego, and in these pictures are the models for Pacific Rim which I loved. I usually try to get my hands on any Robot Memorabilia out there like Transformers, Reel Steel, and now Pacific Rim.

Above is Gypsy Danger, one of the heroes of Pacific Rim, a Third Generation Jaeger meant to kick the Kaiju back to where they came from. The movie revolves around it’s main operator and it is one hell of a robot, and Sideshow made one very cool model of it, and its already available for PreOrder which I placed with AlterEgoComics. It’s rare to get such a high quality robot piece and this one looks to be one hell of a Jaeger just from the pictures at Comic-Con

This was a surprise for me, another Jaeger, Striker Eureka, “the strongest and the fastest” Jaeger with 11 Kaiju kills, and make up the Resistance’s “go-to team”. It was one very cool looking Jaeger, and now that Sideshow has developed it into one very cool looking model I love it. It’s not up for PreOrder yet, but when it is, I am ordering it. The pair of Jaegers will look good together, and it will give me something to enjoy while I wait for Del Toro to come up with the sequel for Pacific Rim which revolves around Drifting. If you haven’t seen the movie, you should go see it.

The IRON MAN Suit!

IM3LSF1

Owning the Iron Man suit is something on every man’s mind, well its always on my mind. In this case you can have it, but it isn’t the indestructible armor that Tony Stark built for Billions. Sideshow Collectibles have built a 7 foot tall lift size stunning high-gloss automotive painted replica of the armor worn by Tony Stark in Iron Man 3. The Iron Man Mark 42, you definitely get to enjoy LED light-up eyes, arc reactor, palm repulser, and display base. The real thing must cost Billions to build but you can have this one for only $8’500.

Optimus Prime – Side Show Statue

Side Show have done it, they have built an amazing looking model of Optimus Prime. I love the high quality models that come from Side Show. Only 100 of these will be made and at $1200 it sells for a hefty price. Not everyone would want something like this but for the collector they would want this. They haven’t released any details about the size of it but it does look like a high quality product out of Side Show.

Predators : The Berserker Mask

Predators movie is around the corner, and with it comes the release of the Berserker Mask. Many may not know of the Berserker Mask yet, but it is the mask of the most fearsome Predator yet, a lethal killing machine. I’m looking forward to seeing the Predators movie, I have been a huge fan since the first one, and I loved how they are noble hunters from Predator 2 with Danny Glover. I like how they have personalized the mask a bit when before they only had one mask, not really distinct. I can’t wait to see this movie, its bound to be great, hopefully great enough to make us forget all of the AvP movies.

And they have come up with some very interesting creations but this time I was amazed to see this Iron Man suit which is about 1.016 meters tall, and that is pretty big, I saw it and thought I wanted it but then I looked at the price of $2000, but that would be an amazing model to have and with SideShow items your guaranteed quality.
