STORM Bishoujo

A Kotobukiya import, STORM looks great as the latest Bishoujo statue. Take a look:

On a whirlwind-shaped base, Storm stands an impressive 12 inches tall as she wields the power of lightning against a foe. This PVC statue figure is based on an original character design by Shunya Yamashita and the costume designed by David Cockrum. Definitely one for X-Men fans or collectors of the anime-inspired Marvel line!

New Black Panther Figure from Sideshow

Shipping in the 4th quarter of 2010, check out the new the new Black Panther statue from Sideshow.

The Wakanda leader T’Challa stands poised to strike on a rock, spear at the ready as his golden eyes glare out at any potential foe. Standing at a whopping 18 inches, the figure features some incredibly detailed sculpting, real fabric details and a wired cape for poseability. More than that, it also boasts a switchable unmasked head and an open hand should the spear prove too imposing!

Sideshow and Marvel's Black Panther statue

The statue is the work of Marvel and Sideshow artists and designers Tony Cipriano, Don Rutherford, Anthony Mestas, Tim Hanson, Seth Rinaldi, Mike Allen and The Sideshow Collectibles Design and Development Team. Given the incredible textures on this piece, they’ve really outdone themselves. Even among a line of beautiful pieces, I would say that this Black Panther still stands out.

It’s a great piece for anyone seeking a stunning rendering of a character who is too rarely given his dues.
