Good evening everyone, here is tonight's rundown of what's been happening at Sideshow's Spooktacular… we've had a few new goodies and lots of prizes and coupons since the last update, but let's start off with one ugly Legendary Scale Bust. Here she is, the nasty and slimey Meg Mucklebones from the movie Legend!
In his quest to recover the last unicorn from the Lord of Darkness and rescue Princess Lili, young Jack must travel a perilous course riddled with unexpected obstacles. Reaching a swamp, Jack faces Meg Mucklebones, the water hag. Meg makes clear her plan to eat Jack, scraping her gnarled fingernails along his mirror-like shield, but his silver-tongued flattery distracts the hag from her meal just long enough for Jack to recover his sword from the swamp, allowing his escape.
Sideshow Collectibles proudly presents the Meg Mucklebones Legendary Scale Bust. Each piece is individually painted and finished, each with its own unique quality and detail that is the trademark of a handcrafted Sideshow Collectibles bust. Cast in highest quality polystone, hand-finished and hand-painted to exacting standards, the Meg Mucklebones Legendary Scale bust is a perfect addition to any display.
Product Size: 14" H x 10" W x 9" D
Product Weight: 9.00 lbs

Aside from Meg, there's been lots of updates and contests… for those of you following the Word Scavenger Hunt, we are currently at 9 of 20 words. If you haven't found the most recent, be sure to check out Mistress of the HR and the Help Wanted movies! There's also been a TON of coupon codes, so be sure to look out for those. There's saving all over the place! There's also the T-800 Exclusive figure contest still open, check that out by clicking here. Tomorrow should be fun, the CEO of Sideshow will be stopping by to chat with us Sideshow freaks in the IRC chat. Check it out:
As a reminder, we've managed to persuade Sideshow's President and CEO, Greg Anzalone to join our live chat with collectors during Spooktacular! Greg will be on-hand to chat with all of our chatters tomorrow, Tuesday, October 27th, at around 3:30 PM (Pacific Time)! So, get your questions ready and remember to be on your best behavior so that you don't scare him off! Strict chat etiquette will be enforced, meaning no spamming of questions, no foul language, etc. Read all the information through the following link, and we HIGHLY suggest accessing our chat through a dedicated IRC client! (And please give Greg a little break if he doesn't make it in at EXACTLY 3 – he's a busy man!)
That ought to be interesting, I'll see about posting the log of that conversation so those of you that can't catch the chat session don't miss out on what he had to say.
As for prizes, chat and online prizes have been flowing pretty steadily and with 5 days to go, you know the best is yet to come! I've already managed to haul a VCD Alien, Medicom Han Solo figure and a Sideshow keychain so I'm definitely a happy camper. I love contests and trivia, BOOYA!
Several products have been revealed and posted for pre-order (you can check the complete list by clicking here) but one of the pieces I am MOST curious about is the mystery Life-Size Bust. Could it be a Life-Size Gamorrean Bust from Star Wars? Check out the trailer from Help Wanted:
I'm thinking yes, and if it, AWESOME! Will he become an addition to the collection? We shall see… if quality is king, price is queen, and we all know the woman is ALWAYS right!
PREDATOR 2 BUST ON THE WAY!!!
Sideshow JUST posted a new Ask Sideshow post and there's some Predator stuff in there! Read it by clicking HERE!
A. Would you consider creating another statue of the original Predator? I revisit the PF/maquette version that you created a few years ago, and I am still amazed at how beautiful and detailed it was. No on else has come close the quality that you bring to this subject/character, and I am sure I am not alone in this opinion and request!
Q. Absolutely – the original Predator will reappear in full-bodied form, in some format, at some point.
A. As a follow up to your beautiful Predator 1 life-size bust, is there any chance that fans will get a Predator 2 bust in the near future? If so, I would love to see a closed mandible sculpt that has a more aggressive look!
Q. Yes, we do plan to release a Predator 2 Life-Size Bust. We’ll pass along your facial expression suggestion!
OH SWEET MAMMA!!!!!!!!!! Bring it!!!!!
That's it for tonight gang, see you tomorrow!
