Sideshow Collectibles & Hot Toys Reveal The Latest Goodies for ‘Iron Giant’, ‘Back to the Future Part II’ & More [Comic-Con 2016]
Posted on Thursday, July 21st, 2016 by Ethan Anderton
We’re in the middle of the hustle and bustle at Comic-Con, and last night we made sure to stop by the Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys booth in the middle of the show floor to find out about the latest goodies the high-end collectible creators were showing off on the convention floor. We were not disappointed with the line-up of new stuff coming down the road, which includes a whole new DeLorean time machine for Back to the Future Part II, a new collection for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a heroic statue for The Iron Giant, the most accurate Darth Vader bust created by Sideshow to date and much more.
Check out all of the Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys Comic-Con 2016 goods after the jump.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
This is the first time all of Sideshow Collectibles new statues for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been seen together, featuring a whole new take on the heroes in a half-shell. The good news is that the Leonardo statue you see above is available to order right now for $349.99. As for Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael, they will be available to purchase in the coming months, and this is the first time anyone has seen them in public. And in case it wasn’t clear that this isn’t something for your kids, some of the turtles’ weapons are metal.
This is a life-size R2-D2 that makes sounds and lights up. This isn’t the first time that Sideshow has made a replica of the famous astromech droid at this scale, but this time R2’s dome head can swivel, and he’ll come with a remote that will fit inside one of his compartments. However, that remote won’t move him around on the floor or anything because he stays attached to base on which he sits. We were told the base was made a bit bigger this time because some people who bought the previous R2-D2 said they kept bumping into him when they got too close while walking by and would occasionally damage the little guy. No price or release date was revealed just yet as the paint was literally drying the night before preview night began.
The Iron Giant
This is a truly breathtaking statue. Not only do the eyes light up, but Sideshow Collectibles will have an exclusive version that comes with the “S” on The Iron Giant’s chest as you see here. There was no exact price, but we were told that it would likely be in the range of Sideshow’s more recent Voltron maquette, which costs $1250. No release date was available for this yet either.
Rocket Raccoon and Groot
Sideshow Collectibles is looking to the comic books for inspiration for a new line of collectibles for Guardians of the Galaxy, and everyone’s favorite duo is among the first to be crafted. As you can see, these designs are drastically different from the movie versions of the characters, but they look absolutely amazing.
This was easily one of the more elaborate new pieces that Sideshow Collectibles has on the way. Deadpool is jumping away from an explosion while slicing a grenade with his sword and shooting an assault rifle. The details are so intricate that you can see a little bullet at the tip of the fire flash from the barrel of the gun. There will be an alternate accessory that will allow you to replace Deadpool’s sword with a selfie stick, which is absolutely something the Merc with a Mouth would do.
This was one of the unfinished pieces that Sideshow Collectibles had on the show floor. You may be thinking that this doesn’t look very special, because it’s just another version of Bane. But what’s cool is that this is a fourth scale version of Bane, which means this design of the character is massive if you were to compare him to a fourth scale Batman.
