Sideshow Collectibles announces the new Legendary Scale line – Check out the Wolf Predator Preview!

July 22nd, 2011

All I have to say is… IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME!  Yes folks, Sideshow has seen the light and is producing a large scale line of collectibles called the Legendary Scale line, named after their half scale style line of busts called LSBs, or Legendary Scale Busts.  They’ve already announced some of the upcoming pieces in the line, including an OFF-THE-HOOK Wolf Predator that was just posted and looks insane!  Check this out:


Here’s the official announcement quoted from the Sideshow site:

Sideshow Collectibles’ Legendary Scale Figures – Because Bigger is even Better

The increased size of Legendary Scale(TM) Figures provides Sideshow artisans with a larger creative ‘canvas,’ allowing added detail and realism in sculpture, paint application and costume fabrication. The larger sculptural base creates opportunity for pose realism and greater detail in a character’s likeness, facial expression, and defining features, including skin and hair texture, unique markings, and scarring. Similarly, the paint application can be executed with greater precision for more natural shading and subtle textural details. Larger clothing patterns provide opportunity for better fit and accuracy in costuming, including greater authenticity in fabric choices and finishes, and functional pockets, belts, and closures.

With their striking realism, refined detailing and commanding size, Legendary Scale(TM) Figures elevate a collection into a gallery display. Intended for pedestal or tabletop presentation, these centerpiece figures are designed to stand eye-to-eye with viewers, drawing them in and challenging them to enter the world of the character, inviting them to relive the journey. These commanding figures are lifelike showpieces unlike any other, capturing the essence and emotion of Pop Culture’s pinnacle characters.

Sideshow has established Legendary Scale(TM) as a term to describe big projects, as collectors have found with the Legendary Scale(TM) Bust series. The term Legendary Scale(TM) is a promise of bigger and better. The Legendary Scale(TM) brand allows the artists at Sideshow the freedom necessary to explore monstrously large characters, like Neytiri from Avatar and Sauron from The Lord of the Rings, in a large-scale size that still comfortably lends itself to display in a home or office environment. The Legendary Scale(TM) category will also provide a rich landscape for characters from various films and comic stories to be  displayed together in a very complementary fashion. Although pieces may vary in true scale,  Legendary Scale(TM) Figures will share a similar physical size and proportion.

Legendary Scale(TM) Figures offer collectors the most authentic representations of classic heroes and villains. These icons of comic, film and television have fueled the collective imagination for generations of fans, and none are more deserving of the reverence that these detailed and commanding figures comprise. With the greatest dedication to accuracy and authenticity, Sideshow Collectibles presents Legendary Scale(TM) Figures.

    Nice! I’ll be snagging this one. Looks bad @$$!

    Holy shizniz……I wish my kidneys didn’t hurt, so I could of done what’s proper for these magnificent pieces…cream my pants.

    It’ll take time, but I want one,
    In stone….maybe granite for xeno…shit, that’ll generate revenue from the customers they do specific orders.

    Tell them, that’s free, but actual ideas will cost them…and I’m far from a greedy man.

    And I still haven’t had an e-mail for someone wantimg to make a movie that does this series true justice. Which pisses me off. 2 months, it’ll be independent…and future one’s will remain that way.

    You know why the AVPs suck? AVP, slow bullshit, and a half ass made Machinko….”didnt want a ripley…” Hmmmwell, I wonder where the charecter came from…and the mark of a tribe, means you are part of the helix bonding the brotherhood together.
    AVPR…Better, but had a plot before the movie was made. Predalien…haha. Fucking nice classification. Like calling bracers, gauntlets…it had better interaction…but I dont need humans to tell this story, except to be bate and meat. I especially don’t need charecter development… I’m here for the honor and carnage.

    But the idea of a xenomorph in a dead predator, taken onto their mother ship without notice. Yes, humans are retards, theyre the supreme being hunting their most feared prey…but I guess that wouldn’t write another half of a movie.
    But the predator was done right. Honor, multiple xeno attacks, and an honorable death.

    I know, younglings in the first one. THE ONLY THING THEY’VE TRAINED FOR THEIR ENTIRE LIVES…haha. Disgrace. Even worse than saying a infantryman isn’t ready for war.

    Except for drafties..I post long messages, with excess thoughts sometimes(all the time), but just in case important people, that could control/influence a draft *wink*, are reading..deffinitely in the future, if I havent put myself, to a point of no return(electric drum roll)
