HERO FROM THE SKY ASH – EVIL DEAD 2

Shipping in October, we’re offering yet another San Diego Comic Con 2012 Exclusive, this time from the cult classic EVIL DEAD 2. Take a look:

A sepia-toned Ash recreates his look from the film’s close and he comes with a deluxe base available only in this set. The figure was created to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the second movie (commence feeling ancient) and is a great find for any fan.

DEATH

Despite their popularity and massive critical acclaim, Vertigo characters don’t usually get their due as action figures, statues or any other such merch, but at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, you could at least get your hands on a brand new rendering of DEATH.

Some envision Death as a grim reaper or dark angel to be feared. But as created by Neil Gaiman for DC Comics’ line of Vertigo comics, the Sandman`s older sister is pretty, perky and always gets the job done. She’s been around since the beginning of time and is exactly the kind of girl you’d want to follow into the unknown. Our 8” figure of Death wears her trademark ankh necklace and comes with a skull-themed display base. The dioramic window box packaging and separate shipper box are dressed with artwork commissioned by Vertigo artist Jill Thompson.

CLONE COMMANDER FOX

Available now, COMMANDER FOX joins the legions of Star Wars figures given the Sideshow treatment. Take a look!

The figure is a pretty great-looking one and would definitely serve any Star Wars fan well. Plus, it boasts an absolutely ridiculous list of features that add not only cool accessories, but a ton of value. This was one that a lot of people missed out on as it was launched as an exclusive San Diego Comic Con piece, but now that it’s out here, you can finally snag it for yourself!

Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the newest member of the Militaries of Star Wars Sixth Scale line, Clone Commander Fox.

New York Comic Con 2011: Hasbro’s Exclusive Compound Hulk Figure

compound hulk figure loose
Hasbro’s Marvel Universe line expands at NYCC 2011–October 13-16 at the Javits Center–with the Marvel Universe Special Edition Compound Hulk figure. You can only get your hands on Compound Hulk, which was inspired by HULK #30 by Jeff Parker and Ed McGuinness at the NY Comic Con 2011.

What does HULK writer Jeff Parker think about seeing his and Ed’s creation turned into a toy? “This is not surprising at all considering how big Ed factored into that character–everything he thinks of makes a great toy,” Parker said. “It’s very cool, and they better send us each one and not make us share just because it’s two Hulks in one!”

“The first cool thing was seeing Jeff take a completely absurd idea and make it work on so many levels,” added McGuinness. “The second cool thing was seeing said absurd idea become a really great looking toy. I can’t believe I get paid to do this!”

What’s more powerful than Hulk and Red Hulk? The two Hulks combined into Compound Hulk! This 3 3/4″ Marvel Universe figure recreates a memorable moment from this year’s HULK #30, when the two hulking enemies were combined into one red-and-green behemoth! The figure is based on the artwork of superstar artist Ed McGuinness, and his artwork adorns the special edition blister card and outer packaging of this one-of-a-kind figure!
