VERY cool new toy, there, T. clap clap

Sideshow makes incredible sculpts like this one. Its a beauty.

Love the fine detailing, too and color. That just makes it.

How many pieces total in this particular run? Any idea?

It's out of 1,500, I think.  It hasn't sold out yet, probably because of its price.  I have #100, because I bought it so long ago.  It took them a year to make it. 

I still have a bunch that I paid for that I won't get for months...  Groot, Rocket, Wonder Woman, Rey, BB8...  I'm hooked!

So it took them a year to make the run of 1500 figures, you mean?

Nice low (and an even 100) number on your piece, too.

You got it.

I bought the Alien King in June 2016.  It arrived yesterday.  It's pretty detailed.  Here's another pic.  Let's see how long my wife lets me have it out in the open before she sends it to the man room  ;D



And a few others I got recently...



I'll post more later.

Yeah, it's quite fun.  I'm now debating on whether or not to get Thanos.



He's pretty cool.

The problem with these figures is size of course.  But the main issue are the boxes.  I've kept all of them and they take a lot of room.

Really dig that Catwoman.  Pretty spot-on likeness of Michelle, the best Catwoman EVER.

Yeah they are huge for sure, how big are the boxes?

Have you seen the TMNT?

That one is my favorite of the bunch here.  It's almost hyperrealism.  And yeah, she is super hot as Catwoman.

I could, but I keep all my folded posters flat.

The boxes are a problem, though.  I probably have 30 at this point, and some of them I can't even wrap my arms around.  At some point, I won't be able to save them anymore, especially since I bought 8 more statues that will be sent to me in the next 6 months.

If you get to the point you cant store the boxes anymore, just get rid of the packing, break the boxes down to flat at least.  Long term whoever sells these down the road, having the box will make a big difference in price.

Funny you should mention that, we were talking about it yesterday.  We're moving a little closer to the beach next year and my wife suggested that I keep all the boxes at least until then.  That's like 30 boxes or so.  The Groot box itself is probably 3 feet tall with all its packaging.  After the move, I was thinking of trashing it all (the boxes, that is).  So you're saying all I need is the printed box and I can trash the styrofoam packaging?

Having all is best, but not having the styrofoam shouldnt kill the pricing too much. We are talking years down the road, if you were selling anytime soon you would take a hit not having the original packaging foam. Having the box though is a must  :)

Honestly T, with as much stuff as you must have, you'd probably be well served just renting a small storage unit.  It will cost you money, but will probably end up a net gain to your estate (and whoever inherits it) versus throwing things in the trash.  Even a small 8x8 could store away a bunch, and you could even throw a flat file in there to store away some posters.  Being in so cal, you do not need to worry about climate control.

Thanks.  You know what you did.
