Sideshow Collectibles To Release Life Size Han Solo Frozen In Carbonite Figure

1

Bring home a piece of the Star Wars film legacy with the Sideshow Collectibles Han Solo in Carbonite Life-Size Figure ($7,000).

This magnificent seven-and-a-half foot tall replica captures every detail of the frozen smuggler with stunning realism, just moments after his affectionate parting words, “I know,” in The Empire Strikes Back. Expertly recreated in fiberglass and high quality materials, film-accurate light effects in the base, side panels and rear power canisters provide added authenticity to Solo’s carbonite prison. Jabba’s most sought-after trophy can now belong to you, as a truly unique centerpiece in any home theater, mancave or Star Wars display.

Comes with full-color detailed instructions, some assembly is required. The figure is expected to ship in October 2014.

New Options For Star Wars – D-Tech Me Returning To Star Wars Weekends At Disney World Starting May 16, 2014

SWD087421

Star Wars – D-Tech Me experience will return this year to Star Wars Weekends at Disney World with a few new options for guests. This year, the experience will be located inside Darth’s Mall, located in Soundstage 1 between Studio Backlot Tour and Toy Story Midway Mania.

For those unfamiliar with Star Wars – D-Tech Me, this 10-minute experience uses the world’s highest-resolution, single-shot 3D face scanner created by our Imagineering scientists with Disney Research labs. The captured image is later sent to a high resolution 3D printer to create the figurine.

SWD087422

This year, two returning favorites – Carbon-Freeze Me and Stormtrooper – will be joined by two new figurines – Alderaan Princess and X-Wing Pilot. There are both male and female options offered for X-Wing pilot, Carbon-Freeze Me and Stormtrooper figurines. For children, Alderaan Princess and Carbon-Freeze Me figurines will be available in more youthful appearances.

SWD087423-613x762

For the first time, we are introducing a 16-inch figurine. While a wise Jedi Master once said “size matters not,” you can see the size differences of the Stormtrooper figurines in the above image.

SWD087424-613x572

The Star Wars – D-Tech Me 7-inch figurines are $99.95 each, plus shipping and applicable sales tax. For the 16-inch figurines, retail is $149.95 each, plus shipping and applicable sales tax. All participants will receive a specially designed button.

Completed figurines will arrive within 7-8 weeks after the experience if shipping domestically (it takes a little longer if shipping internationally). To book your experience, please call 407-WDW-TECH (407-939-8324).

The experience will be offered during Star Wars Weekends 2014 (May 16 – 18, May 23 – 25, May 30 – June 1, June 6 – 8, and June 13-15).

My Office

Superman needs his Fortress of Solitude and Batman has the Bat Cave. We all need a favorite space to relax, reflect, write, read a book, watch a movie or showcase a favorite collectible or souvenir.

Maybe it’s a game room, library or secret space hidden by a moveable bookcase that leads to a man cave.

I’ve always been curious what curios J.J. Abrams keeps close by, what books fill Stephen King’s shelves, what collectibles does Patton Oswald possess, what artwork lines Jim Lee’s walls, how many toys fill John Lasseter’s Pixar office and what movie memorabilia does Steven Spielberg showcase? Perhaps someday I will find out!

The answers would reflect the owner’s personality, interests, accomplishments, etc. Equally as fascinating to me would be how the items were displayed.

So, I thought I would let you into my world and show you my office and give you the nickel tour.

I wanted my Southern California office to reflect my varied interests and showcase some of my favorite things.

I have collected Stephen King books since 1983. He’s my favorite author and I’m also a fan of his son, Joe Hill. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting both authors on numerous occasions and they are wonderful talented friendly people. The bottom shelf of my bookcase is filled with oversized art books featuring the work of Walt Disney, Jack Kirby, Jim Lee, Alex Ross, Todd McFarlane, Charles Schultz and Tim Burton.

IMG_9958 IMG_9959  IMG_9966

My Funko Pop! Batman collection guards my graphic novels. Batman is my all-time favorite comic book character as reflected in the art, toys and books in my work space.

IMG_9962

Some of my prized collectibles are an original Batman ink commission by Brazilian artist, Rafael Grampa (I also have his Batman Black & White statue), a signed Adam West Batman photo, a signed Drew Struzan Stephen King Dark Tower print and a series of Jock letterpress Batman prints signed by the artist.

IMG_9946

A fun 3D light up replica of Iron Man’s mask appears to be bursting through my wall.

I also collect posters, many of which are from MONDO, a boutique art gallery based in Austin Texas. They release limited print runs of pop culture posters that are lovingly rendered by amazing artists. Some of my cherished prints are based on the Universal Monster movies by Francesco Francavilla, Star Wars by Tyler Stout and The Incredibles by Tom Whalen. Another favorite piece is my Batman Rogues Gallery print set by Olly Moss; With only a few simple brush strokes the UK artist cleverly captures the essence of the Joker, Poison Ivy and the Riddler.

IMG_9947 IMG_9955 IMG_9967 IMG_9971

The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller from 1986 is my favorite graphic novel so I had to pick up this statue of Batman vs. The Joker by Kotobukiya. I was a huge fan of both the original Batman TV show and the Batman Animated series so the 1966 Batmobile and the vinyl Animated Batman figure are prominently displayed.

See The 10 Most Iconic Movie Props Ever Sold

superman-costume-image

Monday’s Premiere Props Hollywood Auction Extravaganza XIII has some impressive items: a sword from Kill Bill, a gorilla mask from Planet of the Apes, the Riddler’s hat from Batman Forever.

24080002final001mo2

These films would have been different without these pieces; some films are so connected to their props, they become symbols for the movie.

DeLorean-Time-Machine

And so cinephiles clamor to get their hands on these objects that embody their favorite movies and are willing to pay a fortune to get them. $200,000 for a small metal tube, $78,000 for a suit of clothes: if it graced the silver screen, it’s worth more than gold.

TIME takes a look at the 10 most iconic movie props ever sold and you can see them HERE.

20 Rare (And Really Expensive) LEGO Minifigures

Since their introduction in 1978, LEGO minifigures, also known as “minifigs,” have become arguably the most iconic aspect of the popular toys. These anthropomorphized pieces of plastic are a hot collector’s item, and with high demand comes high prices. Mental Floss has compiled a list of the priciest minifigs on the market today. Check it out HERE.

 Mr._Gold_waving

Series 10: Mr. Gold Exclusive Minifig $500-$1,100

In 2010, recognizing how popular their little figures had become, LEGO introduced a set of 16 collectible minifigs, sealed in opaque plastic bags so no one could tell what figure was inside. The new minifigs included a caveman, a ninja, a robot, and a nurse. Since then, new minifig series are released every year.

Series 10, released in 2013, featured an exclusive gold chrome plated figure known as Mr. Gold. This top hat and monocle-wearing, jewel-topped cane-carrying figure became the mascot of the series. Limited to only 5000 pieces worldwide, it has since become the single most expensive minifig on the market today. Prices vary wildly, ranging anywhere from $500 to $1100, so it really comes down to how much you need to complete your Series 10 minifig collection and how much you’re willing to spend to do it.

Guillermo del Toro Gives A Guided Tour of His Home Offices Nicknamed Bleak House

1

As part of a special feature on Criterion’s Blu-ray and DVD editions of his film Cronos, director Guillermo del Toro leads a tour of his home offices, which he fondly dubs “Bleak House.”

Del Toro explains that the offices were created as a “compression chamber” so that he and his co-workers and collaborators could be “stimulated not just by what is called high art or fine art but by even the powerful images that come from toys or pop art or vivid imaginations. So everything in the house for me has equal importance, whether it’s a rubber toy or an anatomical model, whatever it is, it’s here to try to provoke a shock to the system, circulating the lifeblood of imagination, which I think is curiosity.”

His workspace is stuffed-to-the-gills with creepy figures and memorabilia!

The ceramic bottle comes filled with wheat shochu, a Japanese distilled beverage that is “stronger than wine and sake.”

My Office 2.0 – Post 2013 Comic Con

When I got home from from Comic Con, I decided to sell my prized Drew Struzan Frankenstein print which will be replaced by Struzan’s Dark Tower (I am a HUGE Stephen King fan) and also got rid of my Martin Ansin Dracula. Tears were shed but I made a few bucks. I got the chance to meet Drew at the Con and talk to him for a few minutes. He’s a humble, gentle man. I only had a minute or so to thank him for creating the iconic images that made me want to rush to the theater and see “that movie”.

In their place I now have a Francesco Francavilla Universal Monster corner and a lovely 1966 Batman print by Tom Whalen. I love both artist’s work.

In San Diego a friend of mine at Mattel hooked me up with the oversized 1966 Batmobile with the Batman and Robin figures. (Someday hope to get the Hot Toys one at SDCC – freakin’ amazing!!!!). The Mattel Batmobile was an SDCC Exclusive and will be at Toys R Us later this year.

A Company called 3D Light FX sent me this light up Iron Man mask and decal that makes it look like Ol’ Shellhead is busting through your room.

At the Con I got Scott C. to do a sketch of me in his Great Showdowns Book and Olly Moss drew a little Batman doodle in his Silhouettes book.

IMG_0817 IMG_0818 IMG_0819 IMG_0820

I was able to get some back issues of Sandman graphic novels to round out my collection (yes Comic Con actually has comics if you look hard enough). I am only missing one book now, Season of Mists. I’m eagerly anticipating Neil Gaiman’s Sandman Overture in October!

Finally, I have been hunting for these two Marvel Origin books for years. I had them when I was 10 years old and read them until they fell apart. I looked and looked at SDCC but they were too expensive or in rough condition. My best friend found them both at the Bud Plant booth for $145 – first print hardcovers in mint condition. Heart racing, I quickly snatched them up and then had Stan “The Man” Lee sign both! They will be keepsakes forever. Again, thanks Don!

So, that’s it for now until I hit up D23 Expo next week and see what I can bring home for my walls and shelves.

First-Ever Comic-Con 3D Printing Experience Will Allow Fans To Create Customized Figurines Featuring Predator Alien Holding Their Severed Head

IMG_9380

Nothing like it has ever been at Comic-Con before… Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is bringing an iconic franchise to San Diego as Predator hunts for prey on the convention floor.

In a first-of-its-kind activation at Comic-Con, fans can enter booth #3528 and have their photo taken with state of the art cameras courtesy of 3D Systems. Their image will then be used to make them the victim as a customized figurine is created using 3D Systems 3D printing technology that features the Predator alien holding the fans’ severed head!

The figurine is only available to fans that purchase the Predator Blu-ray 3D, available exclusively for pre-order at Comic-Con and packaged in a limited edition Predator head for $129.99.

Fans can also receive the figurine with the purchase of a “headless” Blu-ray 3D for $49.99.

Additionally fans will get a first look at the all-new 3D transfer of the film before it arrives on Blu-ray 3D later this year as they enter the jungle that is ruled by the ultimate warrior that came from another planet.

Attendees can also participate in the “Hunt the Predator” challenge. Fans who find the Predator, take a photo and upload it to their social networks with the official hashtag “#HUNTthePREDATOR” will be entered to receive a front of the line pass at the Predator 3D booth for an exclusive 3D printed figurine.

The Predator Blu-ray 3D will be shipped to all those that pre-order at Comic-Con when it is officially released in December. The custom figurine will be shipped following the convention.

Come to booth #3528, Thursday, July 18 – Sunday, July 21, 2013 to participate in the Predator 3D Printing Experience!
