Starscream Statue Prototype Revealed By Pop Culture Shock

Over on Instagram, Pop Culture Shock has shared a photo showing a prototype stage of a G1 Starscream statue they’re working on. While still decidedly a work in progress and missing some elements they note are not ready yet pending the hand sculpting process, the basic form of Starscream looks like it’s good to go in this early print. We’ve mirrored the photo for your convenience, which you can check out below.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Quiet 1:6 Scale Statue

Quiet, the sniper unable to speak from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is recreated as 1/6 scale statue! Her powerful feminine pose contrasts beautifully with the long and hard sniper rifle in hand. All of the details have been faithfully captured… from the smallest bolt on the rifle, to the ripped sheer tights on her legs making this an incredibly realistic piece of art! The head is interchangeable with the butterfly mark face and the knife as well as the handgun are detachable from the statue. The sniper rifle can also be removed, which can be displayed with or without the suppressor. All her beauty marks are faithfully painted as seen in the model sheet. The display base features the motif of the Aabe Shifap Ruins where she tried to capture Snake.

Prime 1 Studios Gives Sneak Peek At Movie Jazz Statue

Via Instagram, Prime 1 Studios has shared a teaser for another upcoming statue. Their movie-based offers continue as this piece is based on Jazz as he appeared in the first live action movie. Given there is some lower body visible in the photo, we’ll assume this depicts Jazz before his unfortunate encounter with Megatron near the end of the movie. Pricing and other release info was not provided with this image, but we’re sure that will be shared soon. Click through to have a look!

Pre-order Sideshow Collectibles Masters of the Universe 21.5" Overlord of Evil Skeletor Statue

Pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles

“By the powers of darkness, evil and fear!”

What a wonderful day for evil! Ready to face He-Man in our new statue collection inspired by the popular 80’s cartoon series Masters of the Universe, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the Overlord of Evil himself – Skeletor!

Hailing from the otherworldly dimension of Infinitia, Skeletor rules over the darkest corners of Eternia with an iron fist from his treacherous volcanic base on Snake Mountain. Wielding his enchanted Havoc Staff to command an invisible horde of henchmen and minions, Sideshow’s artists have brought the sinister villain to life with ornately sculpted battle armor and a removable cape. For an extra dose of pure unadulterated nostalgia, collectors can choose to display the devious evildoer with a swap-out yellow skull head sculpt, a tribute to his classic animated appearance. Suitably depicted with his mouth wide open, you can almost hear the barrage of insults spew forth, or that unforgettable piercing cry. Locked in a never-ending battle against the forces of good, Skeletor will not rest until he possesses the secrets of Castle Grayskull – and if he succeeds, the sworn enemy of He-Man will conquer not only Eternia but take his place as master of the universe!

Kotobukiya Marvel Comics 1/6 scale Rogue – Danger Room Sessions – 12-inch Fine Art Statue

Kotobukiya’s amazing X-Men Danger Room Sessions Fine Art Statue series cannot be stopped! We’ve seen a variety of mutant heroes and even some reformed villains battling the holographic dangers in the X-Men training facility, and the latest fan-favorite character to enter the combat training facility is one of the most powerful mutants in existence, Rogue!

Born Anna Marie in Mississippi, the young girl’s mutant powers first manifested during a kiss with her childhood boyfriend. Suddenly she found herself absorbing his life energy, and subsequently ran away, taking the nickname Rogue in the process. When touching a mutant, she absorbs powers in addition to memories and skills, making her incredibly powerful and incredibly dangerous. During her early career she battled the current Ms. Marvel and seemingly absorbed her flight and super strength permanently.

A stalwart defender of X-Men and anyone in need of protection, Rogue embodies both power and beauty. The spirited mutant is captured in a great action pose, poised over the hand of a defeated Sentinel as she looks for the next threat. Flying over the wreckage, Rogue carries a piece of the trashed robot to use as a weapon (and a warning) to other foes. The mutant hero’s classic costume is beautifully recreated, with the bright green and yellow of the bodysuit standing out within her dark brown jacket. Always enthusiastic in the heat of battle, Rogue’s face is perfectly sculpted to show off her fighting spirit. As an added bonus you can display the X-Woman in either of two of her most popular looks from the comics with alternate portrait heads!

She has been a steadfast member of various X-Men teams for years, and of course that means she’s spent quite a bit of time in the Danger Room. Ever since the early days of Marvel Comics’ mutant adventures, “X” teams have trained together in the ultra high tech facility known as the Danger Room, equipped with state of the art adaptive combat and athletics routines that challenge each participant in unique ways. The training facility has been featured prominently in X-Men comics over the years, as well as in various cartoons and the third X-Men film.
Sculpted by the legendary Erick Sosa, Rogue stands nearly 12 inches tall and is perfectly in scale (1/6) with the other Danger Room Sessions members like Wolverine, Psylocke, Cyclops, and more. Rogue makes for an impressive display piece on her own and looks even better alongside other Marvel inspired Fine Art Statues from Kotobukiya!

And on a related topic, have you seen the 6 Porn Parody Costumes That Give Real Superhero Movies a Run for Their Money? Superheroes mean big business, and it seems like everyone is finding new ways to cash in. In the picture above, the Rogue on the left (from Wolverine XXX) has the quintessential colors and leather jacket that the Southern belle is seen wearing in the comic books whereas the Rogue in the X-Men films (played by Anna Paquin) looks nothing like Rogue at all.

In the picture above, Elizabeth Olsen’s updated Scarlet Witch (on the right) with combat boots and a penchant for black as seen in the upcoming “Avengers: Age of Ultron” looks nothing like the Wanda Maximoff we know from the comics. On the other hand, you can’t deny that the parody version on the left bears a more striking resemblance to the Scarlet Witch we are most familiar with. Same goes for her speedster brother, Quicksilver (see picture below). Not only is his costume true to the green version from the comics, the appropriate pose and elaborate lighting was used for the porn parody. He’s giving Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Avengers: Age of Ultron) and Evan Peters (X-Men: Days of Future Past) a real run for their money, costume-wise.

Then there are the girls from DC comics – Catwoman, Supergirl and Wonder Woman. Check out the porn parody versions on the left versus the film versions on the right. Which is more true to the comic books? Very interesting indeed.

Just some observations ;p I’m not saying you should check out the films LOL

Pre-order Prime 1 Studio "Transformers: Age of Extinction" 23.5-inch tall Drift Polystone Statue

Pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles

At last. There is hope, after all.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is a 2014 3D science fiction action film based on the Transformers franchise. It is the fourth installment of the live-action Transformers film series and stars Mark Wahlberg in the lead role, with Peter Cullen reprising his role as Optimus Prime. It is both a sequel to 2011’s Dark of the Moon and a soft reboot of the franchise, and takes place five years later, after the Decepticon invasion of Chicago.

Drift is one of five remaining Autobots hiding in the United States. He transforms into a blue and black Bugatti Veyron and his robot mode resembles that of a samurai warrior. He often says haikus in his dialogue and is at odds with Bumblebee, who was acting leader in Optimus Prime’s absence, because he believes that Bumblebee is not a worthy leader, although they work very well in battle.

Sideshow Collectibles and Prime 1 Studio are proud to present the Drift Polystone Statue from Transformers: Age of Extinction. Drift is a master of ancient weaponry who always remains calm and controlled during combat. Long ago, he fought for the Decepticons.

More 1966 BATMAN TV and MOVIE STATUE NEWS From Tweeterhead!



In a previous post we shared some new images of THE PENGUIN “Batman Classics” Statue in prototype-mode. Now, here are a few other Batman-related pics from the Tweeterhead Universe!


First off I have to show this PINK BATMAN COWL, also known as the “Contaminated Cowl”. It’s about the same size as the head of the “Batman Adam West” Statue so I’m guessing that it’s an accessory sold separately?? Sorry, I don’t have much info on it yet, just speculating. Heck, it might not even be for sale. Their PR Dept kinda sucks, hee hee!


Next-up, and this pic is huge (click on it), is a totally cool movie prop replica from the 1960’s BATMAN film. This is a “United Underworld” Plaque!  It’s shown here in the very early prototype stage. Tweeterhead showed this off at the latest Comikaze Expo.








Speaking of “Comikaze”, they also premiered the ROBIN THE BOY WONDER Maquette (Burt Ward) from their line of Classic 1966 BATMAN TV Series Statues! It too, is shown in the extremely early prototype stages. but he looks great standing next to Batman (Adam West). The bases stand together to form “one image”.






Oh man, this company just keeps coming out with incredibly awesome stuff that I can’t afford to buy, AARRGGHH!
