karamazov80 Posted November 6, 2009 Share Posted November 6, 2009 (edited) As suggested by handsomedevil elsewhere, here is a thread those interested can use to discuss statues--or those largely static representations of all things more or less geeky. We were talking about the Sideshow Premium Format statues in the other thread, but Multiverse members are a diverse lot, so this thread is for discussion on all types of statues--be they paper weights, bookends, or more conventional fare from site sponsor Sideshow (see above links), Bowen Designs (many of which are available from site sponsor Sideshow Collectibles ), or *shiver* DC Direct. To carryover from the discussion in the 1/6 scale thread, I'm pretty excited about the Premium Format Wolverine, which was just announced here. For those not familiar, Premium Format statues are "mixed media," usually meaning that they are partly "polystone"--a tough, ceramic-type material--and partly cloth. Luke describes how this is realized in the "PF" Captain America here. As you can also see in his picture, these PFs are pretty dang big, being 1/4 scale (versus 1/6 scale 12 inch figures, or 1/18th scale 3 3/4" GI Joes; Minimates might be closer to 1/24 scale or so, as are the Transformers Alternators). Note: if you are interested in forthcoming Sideshow statues, it might be a good idea to sign up for Priority Pre-Ordering here so that you can get in on pre-ordering early. . FYI, exclusives can sell out within minutes. And remember, if you want to buy or pre-order something directly from Sideshow, click the links on this forum first so you can support this great site. Pre-orders from Sideshow cost you nothing until an item arrives in-stock, and you are not charged any cancellation fees. Plus, if you deal directly with Sideshow, you have one of the best customer service teams in existence. As such, when investing in expensive items such as these statues, it might behoove you to consider ordering directly through Sideshow as opposed to other retailers carrying their goods.
