So prepare yourself, Mourners, collectors, and friends alike, for a frightening event unlike any other Sideshow presents throughout the year. Yes, Spooktacular is coming!


What is Spooktacular?

As a tribute to all the things that go bump in the night, every October, Sideshow celebrates Spooktacular. During this time, you will find spine-chilling new product announcements, terrifying special codes and discounts, and scary contests and prizes exclusive to this time of year.

But don’t think that Spooktacular is only limited to the grim and ghoulish. No, no, no. You will also find Star Wars, Marvel, DC Comics, and many other characters participating in the festivities amongst the myths and monsters.

Where do you line up to find all these startling events? Head to our Spooktacular event page.
