Sideshow Collectibles’ “The Dead”
I’m not sure how I’d managed to go all this time without knowing anything about Sideshow Collectibles’ “The Dead” series. I used to visit the Sideshow website pretty regularly back when I still had aspirations of somehow becoming wealthy enough one day to actually be able to afford anything from Sideshow. But it’s been a while since I visited, so I didn’t realize that this series of collectibles existed (and they’ve been around for several years).
Many of these deluxe figures are limited edition. The 12-inch figures (such as The Harbinger, pictured on the left) are fully articulated (though with the price tag, I’m not sure you’re going to want to be playing with them) and incredibly detailed. Other subjects include The Babysitter, The Street Prophet, The Butcher, Mall Santa, and others. There are also a couple of really cool Comic-Con 2009 exclusive pieces, including Mort of the Dead, a black and white vinyl figure that’s a little bit more on the cartoonish side compared to the other figures, but still a kick-ass zombie collectible nonetheless.
Prices on these range from $44.99 to $74.99 and you can buy ’em and check out all the different variations at the Sideshow website. While you’re there, if you wanna pick me up one, I’ll be fine with that. Anyone will do, I’m not picky. We’ll consider it a finder’s fee, okay?
