Sideshow Collectibles DC Comics Batman BustBuy now with free delivery
Starting off, we have the obligatory Batman entry. He may be one of the most represented characters across the collecting community, but there’s a good reason for that — he’s just so damn cool!
Sculpted by the incredible Daniel Bel, this dynamic bust shows of the legendary Dark Knight in all his crime-fighting glory. Brandishing a batarang in hand, there is an evocative story being told here, presenting Batman as the intimidating figure he’s supposed to be.
Standing 14.5” tall, this is one of the least space-consuming of all the upcoming Sideshow collectibles, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg either when compared to other products. So, if you’re looking to keep your collection modest or are simply running out of room, this is a great choice.
Available now for pre-order: 31st January 2021 (£329.99).
Sideshow Collectibles DC Comics Robin Premium FormatBuy now with free delivery
Now, if we’re going to kick off the list with Batman, we can’t forget his crime-fighting companion Robin.
This new Premium Format statue is one of Sideshow’s few deviations into Robin statues of significant size, and it is the only upcoming Sideshow collectible to feature the character in quarter scale.
So if you’re a fan of Robin or simply looking for a companion piece for your Batman, this is right up your Crime Alley!
Featuring a mixed-media cape and sculpted in a dynamic pose that sees Robin leaping into action through a hail of gunfire, this is easily one of the best Robin collectibles set to hit the market in recent years.
Available now for pre-order: 31st December 2020 (£599.99).
Sideshow Collectibles Marvel Doctor Strange MaquetteBuy now with free delivery
Taking a detour into the Marvel universe, we have the insane Doctor Strange Maquette, marking the only magical entry to this list of upcoming Sideshow collectibles.
Bring home the mysticism of the Sorcerer Supreme, and get ready to raise your Marvel statue collection to the next level because this collectible is just something else!
Another one of those characters who is criminally underrepresented in the statue game, Doctor Strange has never looked better. Sporting his iconic Cloak Of Levitation, crafted out of fabric material, this is no museum pose by any stretch. Hovering over a portal and ready to cast a spell, this piece oozes vibrancy, colour, and style.
With the upcoming Silver Surfer statue (which we will get to later on in this list), this is the best opportunity to assemble your Defenders line-up of heroes.
And with the new Doctor Strange sequel on the horizon, this upcoming Sideshow collectible will definitely become a sought-after piece in a few short years’ time. So don’t let it pass you by!
Available now for pre-order: 31st December 2020 (£749.99).
Sideshow Collectibles Predator Mythos Legendary Scale Bust — Predator BarbarianBuy now with free delivery
“Get to the chopper!”
There’s no time to waste with this latest innovation from Sideshow’s out-of-this-world Predator Mythos range, joining the spine-tingling (or should we say spine-ripping) roster of upcoming Sideshow Collectibles.
Depicting the invariably iconic Predator, the Yautja are reimagined in this unique stylisation of these efficient hunters.
Capturing the synonymous likeness of the original, this Legendary Scale bust measures in at a chilling 19″ in size.
Guaranteed to draw the attention of all who gaze upon its enormous stature, the Predator Barbarian stares out with its piercing yellow eyes, ready to embark on its latest hunt.
Available now for pre-order: 31st December 2021 (£699.99).
Sideshow Collectibles Spider-Man Vs Venom MaquetteBuy now with free delivery
This addition is very different from the other upcoming Sideshow collectibles on this list, as it depicts not one but two Marvel characters, battling it out in a skirmish ripped straight from the pages of Spider-Man comics.
Featuring the fan-favourites Spider-Man and Venom, the piece displays the hulking stature of a symbiote-infused Eddie Brock whilst dynamically capturing the flexibility and athleticism of the Wall-Crawling Web-Slinger.
Measuring 56cm tall, this whopper is worthy of being a centrepiece or, if you wish, a much-needed addition to your current Spider-Man collection of Sideshow statues.
There are many Venom and Spider-Man statues out there already in the market, but this one brings them together in a way that hasn’t been faithfully done before. If you’re new to the game, this would be a great way to start you off into the rabbit hole of statue collecting.
Available now for pre-order: 30th April 2021 (£769.99).
Sideshow Collectibles The Dark Knight The Joker Premium FormatBuy now with free delivery
Switching into the territory of movie statues, this is one that should be an instant-buy for any fan of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy.
Featuring Heath Ledger’s Joker, this upcoming Sideshow collectible is less dynamic than others on this list but no less impressive. Instead, we see the Joker captured and behind bars, sitting patiently and ready to unleash some chaos. And, if you’ve seen The Dark Knight, you know exactly what that chaos entails!
With a malevolent grin lining his face, this sculpt captures the intense performance of the great actor Heath Ledger.
Don’t miss out on this one because it will be a quick sell-out!
Available now for pre-order: 31st December 2020 (£699.99).
Sideshow Collectibles Star Wars Mythos Darth Maul StatueBuy now with free delivery
Travelling to a galaxy far, far way, we have the Sith Lord Darth Maul, forming part of the impressive Star Wars Mythos line of upcoming Sideshow collectible statues.
One of multiple in this line, Maul has taken the top spot due to the sheer ferocity in both his pose and head sculpt, as he lets out a terrifying yell.
Following the decapitation of his legs by fan-favourite Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Maul is designed sporting his now synonymous robotic legs and brandishing his dual-bladed red lightsaber.
With a newly announced Obi-Wan Mythos statue incoming, don’t let this one pass you by! As revealed at Sideshow Con, the two make an incredible pairing, spurred by their rivalry seen in both the animated series The Clone Wars and Rebels.
Available now for pre-order: 30th April 2021 (£649.99).
Sideshow Collectibles Marvel Taskmaster Premium FormatBuy now with free delivery
Getting into the top three upcoming Sideshow collectibles, we have the first statue to feature fan-favourite Marvel villain: Taskmaster.
This Premium Format statue by Sideshow is no doubt taking advantage of the increased intrigue generated by the upcoming Black Widow movie, of which Taskmaster plays a pivotal role. And rightfully so; the audience response to this statue has been astounding, with more villainous collectibles no doubt in production as a result.
Stretching his sword outwards towards his enemies, this interpretation of Taskmaster is fully equipped for the task at hand. With his classic shield and bow and arrows, this is a faithful design that respects Tony Master’s original comic routes. And let’s not ignore that portrait — what a brilliant head sculp! They could have easily ignored the skull design and gone for something more akin to what we see in the Black Widow promotional material — but thankfully they went for this classic concept.
Available now for pre-order: 30th August 2021 (£649.99).
Sideshow Collectibles Marvel Silver Surfer MaquetteBuy now with free delivery
For our second-place spot, we have the stoic Silver Surfer Maquette (we told you it was coming!).
Standing a massive 65cm tall, this has been a highly demanded Sideshow statue for many years now, with fans clamouring at the faintest hint of a Silver Surfer statue in production. And it’s finally here, as part of the current line-up of upcoming Sideshow collectibles — sculpted by the now highly esteemed industry designer Daniel Bel.
Featuring Norrin Radd emerging from a portal, no doubt seeking another world for Galactus to consume, we get to witness the iconic herald in his full glory, perched atop his cosmic board.
If not for the brilliance of this design, the very fact that we have a Silver Surfer Sideshow statue to this level of detail is enough reason to buy in and of itself. But if you need more of an incentive, this statue would make a great addition to your cosmic Marvel collection or as a first piece to get you started.
With the Silver Surfer film rights back firmly in the hands of Marvel, expect an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point soon, making this an even more prestigious addition to any collection!
Available now for pre-order: 30th May 2021 (£599.99).
Sideshow Collectibles The Mandalorian The Child Life-Size FigureBuy now with free delivery
And last but not least, we have the final upcoming Sideshow collectible… the most adored character in all of Star Wars — the beloved Child a.k.a. Baby Yoda!
Straight from the sensational Disney+ show The Mandalorian, Baby Yoda is ready to join your starship in full life-size scale. Yes, you heard that right: life-size!
As if you need any further incentive — we see you clicking that buy button! But if you do, this highly detailed piece from Sideshow has been painstakingly crafted to represent the now-iconic character in perfect realism.
With those cute eyes beckoning you to bring Baby Yoda home, how can you resist? We know we can’t!
Available now for pre-order: 31st December 2020 (£449.99).
