Over the past couple of weeks, Mysterious Stranger has been inundating my mailbox with guest reviews for Sideshow Collectibles products, but I haven’t had a chance to get them all posted yet. Figured now was as good a time as any to have a “Sideshow Collectibles Review Week”.
With the 12″ Crimson Guard hitting mailboxes just last week, I figured he was a good figure to start this week off with.
I cannot thank Mysterious Stranger enough for the time he’s taken with all of these images and reviews. It’s not a quick and easy task, so thanks to him for putting all of this work in. Be sure to stay glued to my Sideshow Collectibles review section, or hit the direct links as they come up:
Keep watching, more Sideshow Collectibles goodness to come this week!
Oh my goodness.
I know there was some mixed opinions when the sneak preview of the Crimson Guard went live, but… wow. I am loving the looks of this figure. It’s breaking my heart as I realize that I simply do not have the money to own all of these Sideshow masterpieces.
I raved about the Siegie when I first saw it, but did start rethinking myself a bit. But that rethinking has gone right out the window with this photo gallery. He’s got the classic gun, he’s got the classic backpack…he’s got the freaking FRED HEAD (for the Sideshow Exclusive version, anyway)! The more I look at his shiney faux-leather uniform the more I love the elite “honor guard” look of it.
This figure is gorgeous and will be a big time conversation starter in any Joe display. I understand it’s not for everyone, but I love it. I’ve mirrored a couple of the images below, but you can see more at Sideshow’s Website.
Pre-Orders will be live via the Sideshow newsletter on October 6th, 2011.
