Sideshow Collectibles are a US company specialising in high end statues, busts, figures and artwork from all corners of pop-culture. For many collectors, Sideshow represent the crème de la crème, and it’s not hard to see why. Their skilled team of in-house artists, sculptors, tailors and painters use all their talents to create the very best in hyper-realistic representations of your favourite characters from gaming, movies and comic books. Sidshow also distribute the Sixth Scale Hot Toys figures which we also supply here in the UK.
Established in 1994 as a prototyper for larger toy companies, Sideshow eventually stepped out into making and marketing their own figures. This new output began with a series of 8” Universal Monster figures, based on creatures from the historic movies of the 40’s and 50’s. Today, figures produced by Sideshow are typically in sixth scale, around 12” tall, in keeping with collector’s preferences.
It’s not just their poseable figures that attract collector’s attention though, for some time now the Sideshow brand has been synonymous with highly detailed statues, made from a resin called polystone (polyurethane and stone). Typically produced in quarter scale these statues are impeccably hand-painted and produced in limited numbers.
Whether you’re a box-hoarder or a displayer, a Sideshow piece makes a wonderful addition to any collection. In short, they’re what sideboards were made for!
