Fan Mail: A Holiday Wish Granted! UPDATE!

December 24, 2012

During our Sideshow Holiday Wishlist Giveaway over 50 heartfelt, touching, and funny wishes were fulfilled to spread some extra holiday cheer this season. One of our recipients sent us this thoughtful poem as thanks!

From: Vanessa, George, and Nathan

“To all the wonderful Angels at Sideshow Collectibles… this was made from the heart.

Treebeard was the one that started it all
My addiction was born and my collection grew tall
Sideshow Collectibles was introduced in my life
Little did I know they were also responsible for making me a wife

On Dave’s forum I met another collector
His name was Booyah or George, not Hector
He too was Sideshow Collectibles biggest fan
And to my surprise he came with a plan

After wooing me for 6 months we decided to meet
He was the nicest guy and ever so sweet
One year later we decided to get hitched
Sideshow Collectibles had 2 collectors bewitched

Soon after that we had a big surprise
The first Sideshow Collectors’ baby was on the rise
Sideshow Darth Critter was his name
He will grow to have great fortune and fame

Darth Nathan was born on August 26, 2008
And like the darkness he was 2 weeks late
He screamed bloody murder for an hour after he was born
The Dark Side of the Force came in strong

Now 4 years later collecting runs through his veins
And our wallets are in constant pains
Marvel Superheroes and Dinosaurs are his favorite toys
Nathan and his daddy are my favorite boys

Sideshow Collectibles the company with a heart as big as can be
Makes collectors dreams come true, I agree
So I entered a wish for my little son
And guess what… he won, he won, he won

On the box said do not open until the holiday
Sauron’s Eye sees all and Christmas is still far away
But our family will respect Sideshow’s request
And we will not open the box we will really do our best

I wrote you this poem as a very special Thank You
We feel so humble and blessed and this is true
From the bottom of our hearts we will cherish our surprise forever
And forget your kindness we will never

Again Thank You for our wonderful prize
Sideshow Collectibles the company full of Angels in disguise
From our Family to yours
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Vanessa, George and Nathan – aka Darth Critter”

Darth Critter! =)

Under the tree waiting for the countdown =P










No peeking!



Hang in there Darth Critter, it’s almost time! :)

    My fiance entered me in the make a wish give away. She asked for anything star wars. I’m a stay at home dad with a 7 week old son and a 21 month old son. I have my own small star wars room but with my budget I buy maybe 2 nice pieces tops per year. Today I opened my box which was a massive surprise! I got a commander Cody 1/6th scale figure and a sideshow calendar!!! I usually only get sideshow statues as gifts since I can’t afford them often. For my October birthday I got a Luke I am your father diorama from my parents and got a commander bly as my mystery figure! Plus a t-shirt. Sideshow has the best customer relations. Besides amazing products, they know how to get repeat customers by treating them right. Another shocker this week was from my parents for Xmas. It was an incredible premium format Han in carbonite. So for a collector like me I’ve actually had an amazing end of year! Thanks sideshow!
