     I couldn't help myself.  I saw this custom statue of Sauron and I had to have it!

Snapshot: Kotobukiya ArtFx Cyclops Figurine vs.Sideshow's Apocalypse

     This is my first of these ArtFx figures.  They're sort of like well designed action figures minus the "action".  Meaning, they have no articulation whatsoever.  They don't look nor feel like statues., but they look cool. This incarnation of Cyclops is probably one of my all time favorites so I wanted a 3 dimensional version of it.  I would love Sideshow to do a diorama, or a premium format figure of just him or him and the Uncanny Team.  This is also the last purported version of the original Cylcops if the post Secret Wars stories about him are true.

Coming Soon: Wolverine Brown Costume Premium Format Figure by Sideshow Collectibles

     I just pre-ordered this forthcoming work of art that Sideshow just put up for order.  Although it won't be out for a year, this is one Wolverine 1/4 scale premium format worth having. You can order the exclusive version with the switch out Katana sword by clicking this link:

And there's a companion piece coming in the guise of Classic Sabretooth.  I look forward to the full reveal on this one!

Coming Soon: Kotobukiya Magneto ArtFx Marvel Now Statue

     Kotobukiya has finally unveiled the second of their set of Art FX statues of the Marvel Now X-Men. This second statue is a version of the Magneto, that was introduced in his excellent solo series which just ended.  This statue is beautiful.  I would be performing a disservice to the X-Men in general if I didn't snatch this guy up as a pre-order (I ordered it from Big Bad Toy Store).

If you haven't read this book, you can check out my video summarizing the first seven issues below.

I finally picked up the Black Queen Jean Grey Statue which adds quite a bit to my Dark Phoenix Saga collection.  I'm super happy with her!
