A Beginners Guide To Sideshow Collectables

Sideshow Collectibles Baby Yoda

Hello, and thanks for stopping by and reading my column on my favorite company Sideshow Collectables!  The plan is to share with readers the new products they have coming out each month, and items that I may have purchased, or a review of a past product that I truly appreciated getting.  

Sideshow Collectables has been around since 1994 and based in Thousand Oaks, California.  The company had a mission to simply produce high quality items for the devoted diehard fan base of pop culture.  Sideshow produces and works with other high end distributors to release very detailed and unique statues, coins, pins, bust, figures, books, etc.  The company covers movies, television shows, comics, cartoons, gaming, anime, and much more to produce their items from.  I started collecting from Sideshow back when I first saw them at a Comic Con in 2009, and my first statue I purchased was a Scarlet Witch statue from Marvel.  From that time to now I have close to 90 statues, figures or prints for this company.  So I am not just a writer doing a review I am also a devoted buyer to this company.

The figures, statues are very detailed and hand painted and very easy to put together.  In this process the company has evolved in many ways of assembling a statue or figure.  They do come with instructions but for the complex ones they enclose the website link to video if you need the help.  Some do have a ton of small parts to assemble and each is numbered because they are number limited.   Some also have two variant types of the statue from regular to limited, which sell out fast.  The parts over time are super easy to put together because now most are connected by magnets, not slide in place or jam into place. 

Once you pick the item you want you have the option to pay all upfront or have it put into a payment plan to help you for the item monthly.  But once the item is sold out you can put yourself on their waitlist to see if any order becomes canceled to give you a chance to get it. Once the item is sent and a grace period passes making sure you are satisfied with the product, you will receive a reward point that can be used to buy other items.  It may take some time to build up a few hundred points to dollars, but it’s worth it when you can make a payment of $40.00 a month and not $60.00 a month.  Also most items will require you to make a non-refundable deposit for the item, so choose wisely because if you change your mind that deposit is gone.  The one thing I have noticed over the years is that yes the statues and items have become more detailed and so awesome.  

They now have a separate studio called Prime 1 Studio, that makes limit sweet detailed statues that are over the $1,200.00 mark, if you are a heavy hitter and can swing that cash why not.  If you are familiar with Sideshow then you know all of this, but if not please check them out!  I promise you will not regret it but your bank account may tell you otherwise.  

For this month I finally received a fan favorite and lovable character The Child, from Star Wars/Disney productions.  I love this one the most because I am a fan of the show on Disney and the statue was made life size!  He was around $300.00 plus shipping, but I did make monthly payments to get this little guy.  I enclosed some pics to show where I have taken him to show him off a little at work.  Think he likes my car and my cat was not too sure about him, so you can see his height is close to 17 inches.  Then it was time for him to decide where he should go on my shelf with other sideshow items. Again there are so many things to collect and they cover all corners of the pop culture so please check them out!
