New Sideshow Collectibles and KOTOBUKIYA Statues every STAR WARS and BATMAN fan must own

Deep inside every fan would want something that would make them remember their favorite movie, favorite comic book and character. It may be posters, toys, action figures, simple trinkets or other collectibles that we would want to include in our collection but we’re pretty sure that one of our most sought after is to have a statue.

In the geek world, two companies come to mind when we talk about statues — Kotobukiya and Sideshow Collectibles. They have been known to create awesome statues and collectibles that includes characters from Marvel and DC Comics, epic movies like the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Star Wars Saga and more.

For now we’ll take a look at their new line of statues (2012 line) that will surely make every STAR WARS and BATMAN fans drool.



Obi Wan Kenobi, mentor to Anakin Skywalker (later Darth Vader) and Luke Skywalker. Went to Tatooine to secretly look after Luke and protect him, he became known as Ben Kenobi. This BEN KENOBI MYTHOS  Statue by Sideshow Collectibles is so impressive because of the detail that it has. It shows a worn-out Obi Wan who is ready for the dessert life, shows his armor from the Clone Wars, and two lightsabers (his and Anakin’s), but the last detail that what it makes cool is that it features swappable faces of Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor. This epic piece should definitely in your collection!


When we talk about who is the most  coolest character in Star Wars, this guy most probably owns the #1 spot! That guy in Empire Strikes Back who got eaten by a desert monster (Sarlacc), yeah he’s the one — BOBA FETT!! This BOBA FETT MYTHOS statue by Sideshow Collectibles just show how bad-ass Boba is, he really looks like he’s battle ready and one look you’ll know why he’s one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy! Man, look at those lightsabers hanging in his belt as trophies!!!


In Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s classic Batman tale – The Killing Joke, Batman’s archnemesis The Joker shot Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl and it made her paralyzed waist down. So if you want to relive or just remember how The Joker looked during that moment, Kotobukiya offers the Batman: The Killing Joke ARTFX Statue. With The Joker sitting pretty with your collection, wouldn’t you like your picture to be taken?



In this critically acclaimed title by Frank Miller which most people saw as revolutionary, Bruce Wayne comes out of retirement to return as Batman and fight crime, and his return The Joker re-appears. The Dark Knight Returns ARTFX by Kotobukiya is surely a must-get for one’s Batman collection, especially if you want a goddamn Batman Vs Joker statue.
