18-Inch Carnage Comiquette

December 26, 2010

A character that seems the ultimate embodiment of fanboy excitement in the Spider-Man universe, the blood-red Carnage comes to terrifyng new life in this incredible 18-inch Sideshow statue by artists Ariel Olivetti, Martin Canale and The Gore Group, Mike Najera, Anthony Mestas andThe Sideshow Collectibles Design and Development Team.


Carnage was once a serial killer known as Cletus Kasady, who became Carnage after merging with the offspring of the alien symbiote Venom during a prison breakout. The symbiote amplified Kasady’s psychotic nature making him even less mentally stable than he had been previously, and therefore even more dangerous. Since the alien symbiote adapts to the host’s personality, the Carnage symbiote is affected by Kasady’s insane mind and lust for destruction, and Carnage terrorized New York City with his vicious killing sprees.

Venom later decided to absorb the Carnage symbiote, during which Kasady retained the Carnage persona by costuming himself in red paint and continuing his killing sprees, albeit as a powerless human. Soon after losing his symbiote, Kasady found an exact replica in the Negative Zone and was able to regain his super-villain abilities. Later, Venom and Spider-Man had to team up to try and stop Carnage.

We’ve got a ton of Spider-Man figures and collectibles available in our Spider-Man section over at CmdStore! Here’s a look at three of our favourites, before we step off of the display shelf and onto the Broadway stage!


7-INCH SPIDER-MAN FROM MARVEL SELECT
A straight-forward but very solid figure, this Marvel Select Spider-Man from Diamond Toys makes a great addition to your Spidey collection or, if you’re a casual fan, is a good place to start on your way to a display shelf bringing all the awesomeness of the wall-crawling web-slinger to your humble abode!


IRON SPIDER-MAN SIDESHOW COMIQUETTE
Yep, this happened. A Spider-Man suit fused with the technology that only Stark Industries can offer, this beautiful comiquette creates an unforgettable image as the now-eight-legged Spider-man crawls across some ruins.


KOTOBUKIYA VENOM
Standing 13 inches tall on an LED-lit base, this statue of Spider-Man’s foe, Venom, is another impressive entry from Kotobukiyua. Check it our if you’re a fan!

Which brings us to the next bit of this post: the first pictures from Julie Taymor’s Broadway take on the superhero: SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK. Gere they are, from Topless Robot:
