Sideshow Avatar AMP Maquette Unboxing Video

Sorry, that isn’t an actual player displayed below – you’ll have to click through to see the AMP Suit Maquette unboxing. When I watched it, I was so impressed I had to post about it here. This thing is massive – 21 x 19 x 19 inches – with an insane amount of detailing.

As cool as this is, I don’t have the $1,199.99, not to mention the addition on our house I’d have to build to display this monster. If you do, head over to Sideshow to buy the Avatar AMP Suit Maquette.

Out of the Box – Avatar AMP Suit Maquette

Launching the Sideshow Collectibles line of AVATAR collectibles is the AMP Suit Maquette, created in conjunction with one of the film’s special effects studios, Legacy Effects. Created directly from 3D modeled by the team that created the 14-foot suit used during filming, the AMP Suit is a truly authentic scaled representation. Each piece is individually painted and finished, each with its own unique quality and detail that is the trademark of a handcrafted Sideshow Collectibles product. The AMP Suite Maquette is comprised of polystone, cloth, resin, fiberglass, metal, ABS and PVC plastics and is the perfect addition to any display.

Mattel San Diego Comic-Con Exclusives on Sale on 8/2

Don’t forget – Monday at Noon EST, Mattel’s exclusives from San Diego Comic-Con go on sale on Here’s the link to the bundled page.

Orko and Plastic Man sold out at the show first, and I imagine some people who got Orko at SDCC will be trying for this version too, because it doesn’t have the semi-translucent appearance that the Con-only color-change version does. Good luck!

Iron Man Armors and Avatar AMP Suit To Be Displayed at San Diego Comic-Con

When Talyn saw the Propworx Iron Man Movie Prop Auction at C2E2 a couple months back, I was hoping to see some Iron Man armors at San Diego Comic-Con. And look at that! Profiles in History will have some of the actual suits worn by Robert Downey, Jr. and Jeff Bridges in Iron Man, as well as the big AMP suit worn by Stephen Lang in James Cameron’s Avatar.

In addition, they’ll be hosting a tribute to Stan Winston. Cool stuff!

Mattel San Diego Comic-Con Updates – Starro Packaging and Pre-Sale Vouchers

Two pretty awesome updates from Mattel on the MattyCollector site today. First up, a demo of the packaging for the JLA Presents Starro the Conqueror exclusive. I had heard that Kevin Conroy was providing the voiceovers here, but I didn’t realize that there was going to be so much of it.

And second, for those of you attending San Diego Comic-Con, maybe the lines for exclusives won’t be quite so bad this year. Mattel is offering pre-sales via MattyCollector on Tuesday, July 13, with pickup times next door to the San Diego Convention Center on Thursday – Saturday.
