OK, I’m going to chip away at my catalog of Comic-Con 2013 pictures with more from Sideshow Collectibles. Since I did a sexy DC girls post, let’s go with Marvel this time. Here are Red Sonja, Black Widow, and Gwen Stacy. Can anyone tell me what’s wrong with the Gwen Stacy photo? And no, it’s not the graininess. Sorry again for the crappy quality of my Comic-Con pictures. I need to take a real camera next year. My goal is to come home with 1,000 cosplayers (check out a post of over 400 from this year + an additional 150 sexy cosplay girls). I’m shooting for 2,500 pictures overall. Why? Because.
And here’s your bonus. I was just going to put J. Scott Campbell’s version of Mary Jane Watson in with the other three but I had Spider-ham on my mind (but no, I don’t like ham, ew) and … well … it all got away from me and here’s an odd image I’m not sure why I created. Make it your desktop wallpaper and make your friends wonder the same as well. Excelsior!
I have so many pictures of things I know are tough to find online. It was probably a waste of time to scan a lot of them, but if you’re like me, it’s frustrating to go look for something rare or esoteric and not find it (or find only a tiny picture). So, I’ve tried to snag things that may be unique. Where possible, I’ve created large images so you can size them to your taste. I don’t care if you use the images. Obviously, they’re scans of objects I didn’t create anyway. What I do ask, if possible, is that you give credit or link back to my site so others can find Comics A-Go-Go! You’re clearly under no obligation. I’m just asking.
I have a ton of Star Wars stuff that I have scanned and may scan in the future. These Tusken Raider pictures came from a card back to a figurine of the Star Wars characters. I don’t remember who was handing them out but I really liked the images.
I feel lazy tonight, so you’re getting a bunch of pictures. I suppose that’s fine, right? Who wants to read when you can look? Here’s are some cool items I picked up at this year’s Comic-Con and before.
First up … this is a light-up necklace with the Max Steel emblem embedded in it. I decided to put it on eBay and now I’m regretting it. It is super cool lit up in the dark. I love the color blue and this reminds me of something James Cameron would do.
Next … an Appleseed fan (without the fan stick). This is a super vibrant image of from the Japanese anime series, Appleseed. I’ve never seen the movie or read the comics. I have a hard time getting into anime stuff — just too much going on and the perpetual intensity makes my head hurt. Still, this is a fantastic graphic.
And lastly … from Battlestar Gallactica, here’s a sketch card by Dave Dorman of William Adama (played by Edward James Olmos).
I snagged a Guardians of the Galaxy mini-poster at the Marvel stage/booth during SDCC 2013. Sadly, it got a bit creased here and there during the scuffle. Damn greedy fan boys pushing me around to grab shit and making it hard for me to do my own pushing and grabbing.
The poster is an exclusive promo from the Comic-Con and shows concept art by somebody or something named “Wen” for the upcoming 2014 release of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
Anyway, it’s a slick one, so I scanned it and here you go. Yes, you can find the image elsewhere, but not as big as my scan. So suck it up and enjoy.
Here’s the poster as a line-up in a really big image.
Sideshow Collectibles always has an incredible display at SDCC (San Diego Comic-Con International). The characterizations are impeccable.
I’m going to post images of some of the best statues during the next couple of posts. Because the statuettes are typically behind plastic cases, it’s really hard to get good shots without a reflection. Additionally, as I’ve apologized for several times now, the quality of the images is inferior because I took the shots with my HTC One S phone camera. It may have a 5 megapixel resolution, but it doesn’t stop it from making grainy shots.
Anyway, to start us out, here is the hottie trifecta from the Batman storyline. Catwoman, Harley Quinn, and Poison Ivy are consummate femme fatales and ooze sexuality that would want any fan boy to pony up $400+ for these ladies, except the über-cheap like me. The statuettes are made in Sixth Scale because they reflect a height of approximately 1/6th of what a character would be as normal.
The size of the statues got me thinking. There were full scale statues of Iron Man at the booth so I wondered if Sideshow had ever done any full height version of Catwoman, Harley Quinn, or Poison Ivy. From what I gathered while I looked around, It doesn’t appear that they have and from what I could tell there aren’t other companies that do it either, at least not under official license. Maybe you can order a something like on Lars and The Real Doll (2007) and dress her up, but that’s pretty kinky and you might have a hard time explaining it to your girlfriend/wife/mother/priest. Yeah, I’m sure some of you have already thought about doing it or actually have done it.

And here’s your bonus. These cosplayers are dressed as the femme fatales Catwoman, Harley Quinn, and Poison Ivy. They are: Yayahan as Catwoman, Vivid Vivka as Harley Quinn, and AbbyDark-Star as Poison Ivy. “Meow”, “tee-hee”, and … “grow”?
