As always, Sideshow will allow a limited number of these items to be released for pre-order for both pick up at the show and for non attendees. If you are considering either of these options please pay attention to the information below. This is one of my favorite vendors at the show and they have very high quality product so I highly recommend pre-ordering ASAP if you are considering making a purchase from them.
For more information on the Sideshow Exclusives, including prices and availability, please visit SideShowToy.com.
First up is the G.I. Joe 12 inch Cobra Ninja Viper figure. While I like the sculpt used for the face (all of their 12 inch figs are magnificant) this is a pass for me but if you are a Joe fan do not pass this up. Then we have the 12 inch Clone Commander. I can see many people passing on this. It is almost exactly like the clone they released last year. I will go for it just to give my clone some company but if you got last year’s model and arent a completionist then isnt a “must buy.” Then we have the Alien vs Predator mini mask set. Another pass for me but the attention to detail is amazing. If this is your cup of tea then go for it And finally we have the Iron Man 2 Helmet Set. Portraying the Mark IV (or VI), Mark V, and War Machine helmets, these are the ones that I think will be the biggest seller this year. I think these are mini helmet but the details are sparse. I think i will get this for my desk.
