How did you first find out about Sideshow?
I saw a friend on Facebook posting pictures of his collection but would not tell me where he bought them. I went through all of his “Likes” until I figured it out. – Mike M.
My wife and I both love The Lord of the Rings, and Fellowship of the Ring was the first movie we went to see together after we started dating. We first heard of Sideshow when my wife spotted the “No Admittance” bookends in a store and bought them for me. For our first anniversary, I researched Sideshow on the internet, and bought Orthanc for her. Since then the cats have knocked over Orthanc (broken, but mended, and now safely in a display case), but I still think those bookends are one of the most beautiful pieces Sideshow has ever made. – Stevan P.
I had been obsessed with Lord of Darkness since I was a small girl. Now I am still obsessed but now with an adult income. I searched for Lord of Darkness and Sideshow was one of the sites to come up. The site caught my attention because it was art. Art I understood. There was so much of it and I wanted it all. - Rosana O.
I discovered Sideshow Collectibles rather accidentally. I was searching on eBay for collectibles of Mystique from the X-Men and stumbled upon auctions for the Mystique Premium Format figure. She has long been my favorite Marvel character and I was blown away by your work. I now have ten Sideshow statues and watch your website and Facebook site like a hawk for new products, contests, and pretty much anything you guys do. - Scott R.
I first heard about Sideshow Collectibles by seeing the booth at Comic-Con several years ago. I placed my first preorder right then and there: the very first X-Men Diorama, with Cyclops and Colossus fighting the Sentinel. Of course I ordered the Exclusive version, which lights up. It remains one of the coolest collectibles Sideshow has ever sold. - Paul B.
The first time I saw or heard about Sideshow was after seeing The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. We walked out of the theater and in the lobby there was a museum quality display with your items. We were blown away! It really was an exciting time to start collecting Sideshow, and now being a member of Sideshow Freaks is like being in a close knit family collectors. - Casey V.
I heard about Sideshow when I was overhearing the cooler guys at the comic book store talking about some of your pieces. After about a few seconds after loading your web site, I fell in love! Thanks for seriously making fireworks go off in my body every time I get to show off your pieces in my amazing collection. I LOVE YOU SIDESHOW! - Chase M.
We want to hear from you!
