A new article by Sideshow Collectibles gives fans some insight into their new Avengers Assemble Statue Collection. We’ve previously seen their Iron Man and Captain America Statues, which are available for pre-order now. In explaining their choices and direction for the line, Sideshow’s Art Director, David Igo had this to say:
“The Avengers Assemble Series was all about capturing a feeling. We tasked our artistic team with ‘trying to find the classic’ in each hero. To make the most iconic and nostalgic versions of some of our favorite characters. Not just in look, but in pose, in composition, in everything. This collection is about heroes defined!”
The Sideshow team has been impressed with the positive response from the fans for these new collectibles. With fan reactions being so positive, they have announced the next two statues in the series. Both Thor and The Hulk will be getting their own 1/5 scale statues in the Avengers Assemble line. As with Captain America and Iron Man, a Sideshow Exclusive Edition will be offered for both. Those exclusive versions will include alternate head sculpts featuring more classic Marvel comics inspired portraits.
Thor will be the next statue offered. The Hulk will undoubtedly follow soon after. You can check out the full article Here.
