Comic Related Statues and Busts

Post by BoloMusashi on Sat Apr 05, 2008 5:55 pm

Thought I'd create a generic topic to collect thoughts, news etc. on comic related statues and busts - basically everything from Sideshow to Bowen, Marvel through to Image.

Here's the Thor Premium Format statue from Sideshow Collectibles.



Product Summary
The Premium Format Thor figure presents the heroic God of Thunder standing tall with Mjolnir to the sky. The figure is sculpted to Sideshow's museum-quality standard, down to the billowing cape and detailed musculature, and completed with real fabric costuming. Each piece is hand-cast of high-quality polystone, hand finished and individually numbered.

The Sideshow Exclusive Edition comes with an interchangeable head with beard and helmet.

This is definitely on my list of things to get this year.

For me this year, hopefully my must have is this beauty:



Product Summary
Sideshow Collectibles and Marvel Comics are proud to present the Premium Format figure of The Thing! Standing with his fists curled and a scowl on his face, there's no need to check your watch, because the look on his mug tells you that "It's Clobberin' Time!" Cast in high-quality polystone, each piece is hand-finished and hand-painted to exacting standards, the ever-lovin' blue-eyed Thing stands over 20-inches tall atop the display base, wearing a fabric replica of his 'first appearance' original costume. From the 'grim' expression to the cracks, crevices and texture of his rocky hide, The Thing Premium Format figure is a piece that even Ben's Aunt Petunia would gladly display on her knickknack shelf.


It's more for me to display thusly:

That looks like it would be a great display DBF. I imagine the two together would make each look a lot better than just displayed in it's own.

Kotobukiya has released pictures of their upcoming Iron Man statue. The images are available through Wizard Universe.



Wizard Universe wrote:And this isn't one of their famous ArtFX PVC statues—this is a resin piece, standing over a foot tall with light up eyes, unibeam and repulsor rays! Just seeing those beams glowing out of the darkness in the teaser image is getting us psyched to own one of these beauties.

Here I was thinking "yay!" that it would be Koto and therefore cheap compared to resin. Of course they had to prove me wrong Razz

It's gorgeous though, really awesome.

I probably could have started a new topic, but meh.

What sort of shelving units other forum members use to display their items? I'm currently using the Detolf glass cabinets from IKEA with acrylic display risers to maximise shelf space. My main concern would be with the resin pieces (Bowens, Sideshow etc.), i.e. is the glass strong enough to hold multiple mini-busts?

My only method of display (besides the top shelf of my desk) is a bookshelf from fantastic furniture. Completely useless for statues and isn't very strong. Which is ok by me, I don't have any heavy statues.
Just...the dust...black shelving...glass has to hide it better.

Last time I checked, IKEA had a number of affordable display units ranging in styles. I've seen some people use the "glass cube" system on other forums but I can't remember the cost or who makes them.

With statues and busts etc. you'll need a display unit that is sturdy, i.e. shelves won't collapse and the display unit doesn't rock. Something that can keep the dust off and prying hands away, i.e. clear doors etc. is handy as well.

I use these to display my figures as well as my mini-busts and statues. Even though the glass shelves are supposed to be able to handle a decent amount of weight, I only display the large statues on the wooden sections, i.e. the top of the cabinet and the bottom shelf.

Is it this one?



Always wanted to get my hands on their Iron Man statue but as you said it cost too damn much.

Yep, that's it Bolo.

On the Hulk, my only criticisms is that the waist area/lower torso seems a little thin. Hulk is one wide mutha. Also, what happened to the top of his pants? I think that will be painted to indicate the remains of a shirt in the final piece.

IMO, a pretty awesome statue. Unfortunately the standard edition looks pretty meh without the trident (only available via the exclusive edition).
