Star Wars Celebration 2015 (and WebSwipe): Sideshow Collectibles Booth Pics

Star Wars Celebration 2015 - Sideshow Collectibles booth pics

With all the excitement over Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, it’s tough to be sitting at home instead of being on the floor at Star Wars Celebration. Luckily, Sideshow Collectibles has posted shots of their booth in the Anaheim Convention Center.

We’ve swiped a few of them for you here, including some life-size stuff, statues, and some of the McQuarrie concept and new 1/6 scale figures, but there’s a whole lot more in Sideshow Star Wars Celebration 2015 Booth Tour. Enjoy!

New Hot Toys and LEGO for Star Wars Celebration [Updated]

New Hot Toys and LEGO for Star Wars Celebration

Star Wars Celebration starts today, and while we can’t be there, we’ll do our best to follow the announcements. After all, with Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens coming this year, this promises to be one of the biggest Celebrations yet. All the collectibles companies will be there in force (awful pun intended).

Hot Toys even has a new Stormtrooper created exclusively for Star Wars Celebration. The Spacetrooper was featured in Episode IV – you’ll see them, with their special zero-gravity and rebreather gear, when the Millenium Falcon is dragged into the hangar of the Death Star (“That’s no moon…”) You can pre-order the Spacetrooper Sixth Scale Figure by Hot Toys at Sideshow Collectibles.

LEGO revealed large scale buildable figures at Toy Fair this year, and they’ll have four new figures joining the first two, Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker, at Star Wars Celebration. They’ve sent us pictures of Obi-Wan Kenobi and General Grievous, and we’ll try to hunt down pics of Jango Fett and Commander Coby. These will be available at shop.lego.com and brick and mortar stores in September. [Update: LEGO has sent us pics of a new Tatooine mini-build set.]

It’s No Laughing Matter – Win the Arkham Asylum Joker from Sideshow

The Clown Prince of Crime kicks off a new Premium Format Figure line from Sideshow Collectibles

Sideshow Collectibles Arkham Asylum Joker Premium Format Figure Giveaway

If you’re a fan of the Batman: Arkham Asylum series of video games, Sideshow is holding a giveaway you’d be crazy to pass up. They are launching a new line of Premium Format Figures for the game, and the Joker is the first of them to be revealed. Standing at over 2 feet tall, his appearance is styled after the designs of the game – before he self-medicated with the Titan drug, of course.

It looks like Batman will be the next figure in the line, and if it’s a hit, then I hope we’ll see Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. And I think it’d be overkill to see Premium Format Figures of Bane, Killer Croc, and a Titan Joker – they’d be ginormous!

You can enter the Arkham Asylum Joker giveaway at Sideshow – it will be $449.99 when it goes up for pre-order tomorrow. If you’ve got the toy budget for it, I’d suggest getting in on it early – the Sideshow exclusive version will also have a swappable laughing portrait (shown above). Good luck!
