Sideshow Goes To Work On Colorful Characters
Thousand Oaks, California (December, 2007) – Sideshow Collectibles, world leader in the manufacturing of licensed and proprietary product, announces the acquisition of a new license for the cult classic film Reservoir Dogs. The 1992 Lionsgate release is the feature film debut of writer/director Quentin Tarantino and quickly garnered a following for the stylized cinematography that has become one of Tarantino’s hallmarks. Sideshow’s license includes rights to create Vinyl Collectible Dolls, 12-inch figures, Premium Format figures, Dioramas, polystone Statues and Busts.
Mob boss Joe Cabot assembles a team of criminals to perform a job, giving each of them a color-coded name to keep the diamond heist professional and anonymous. When police arrive at the precise time and location of the burglary, several people are caught in the crossfire, including Mr. Brown and Mr. Orange. When the remaining team members arrive at the rendezvous point, the group supposes that an undercover police informant is in their midst.
