The entire Web Team chooses Sideshow’s Exclusive ‘Tim Bradstreet’ Punisher Premium Format figure as one of our favorite in-stock products! We like how he sports the stylized skull logo that’s unique to the Bradstreet Punisher art, and we really love how the head sculpt, body pose, and detailed accessories perfectly capture the ‘bad ass’ attitude of this Marvel anti-hero. He comes armed to the teeth with grenades, guns, and spare magazines and ammunition, plus plenty of holsters in which to keep everything. The final product is certainly something awesome to behold…you definitely don’t want to mess with a guy who carries that many guns! [View the Tim Bradstreet Punisher]
Each member of the Sideshow Web Team stops to gape at this sharp-toothed warrior every time we pass by it in the office. It’s hard not to stare at the incredible detail and size of this beast! Not only did the artists working for Stan Winston Studios recreate each and every dreadlock and spike on the Predator’s head, but they also added some super-realistic details to his gaping maw, such as dripping drool and blood-red veins. Last, but certainly not least, the sheer size of this piece is amazing and lends an air of believablity to the bust…it’s a perfect tribute to a much-loved movie monster! Purchase the Predator Bust
The military buffs here at Sideshow have frequently bombarded the Web Team with rousing tales of historic battles won and lost, such as the bittersweet Battle of Trafalgar, which celebrated its 201st anniversary last week. As a re-creation of one of the generals in this great battle, our excellent Napoleon Premium Format figure has recently caught our eye. If you are looking to create a unique military-inspired costume for Halloween, you could easily use this figure as a guide! The fabrication on this piece is absolutely stunning…literally from head to toe, no detail has been overlooked. This figure helps bring history to life, whether on display in your home or office, or as a teaching aid in a classroom. Plus, we really love his awesome hat!

The Sideshow Web Team members are big fans of our Giclee Collectibles…especially the Hellboy Giclees. While they don’t have the massive appeal of our 12-inch or Premium Format figures, we don’t think there is a better example of great creative collaboration anywhere on the Sideshow website. The Sideshow Creative team, working with Guillermo del Toro, Mike Mignola, and other great designers, have put together Concept Sketches, an actual peice of film, an iconic production image, and some valuable autographs for each of the main characters in the film. We like the Hellboy Giclees because they celebrate the creative process, and they look really classy. How often can you say THAT about the devil’s spawn? [Click Here to view Hellboy Fine Art]
