Check Out Sideshow Collectibles' 'Loki' Figure

Posted by No_Name_ (17403 posts) - - Show Bio

We here at Comic Vine love Sideshow Collectibles. In fact, we often give you all a closer look at many of the figures based on popular comic book characters from the company -- and there's no question that more often than not they are absolutely gorgeous. Recently, the high-end toy manufacturer has been working on cranking out many of the characters we saw in The Avengers. We recently gave you guys a closer look at Captain America, and we've also pointed to both the Thor and Iron Man figure. But you can't have the entire cast of heroes and not have a villain to go along with them, am I right?

Sideshow Collectibles revealed high definition promotional images ofthe upcoming Hot Toys figure based on actor Tom Hiddleston's portrayal of Loki in The Avengers. We have to admit, the likeness is not only uncanny; but the expression on Loki's face is so menacing it would make anyone quiver with fear -- well maybe not, but he definitely looks cool.

Sideshow isn't just giving us a simple figurine, oh no. This "Sixth Scale Limited Edition Collectible figure" will come with not two put seven hands, two daggers, a mask, a helmet, a scepter and of course, one pair of shackles so you can re-imagine the blockbuster film. Like so many of the Hot Toys Sideshow Collectibles sculptures, Loki is limited edition, which means limited in quantity. He can be yours for $219.99 or a payment plan of $73.33 per month. Loki is now available for pre-order and will be shipped in December, 2012. What do you think of Loki? Pretty cool? Is this something you would like as part of your collection?

wow it took a lot of talent to make that. No I know its redundant but, if they made a life-size black widow they'd make a fortune!

wow this is amazing..!

#5 Posted by dcfox (152 posts) - - Show Bio

Wow, that face is creepily realistic!

Holy crap! I've never really considered actually buying one of these before. I have very limited space to display such goodies so I've kinda gotten used to overlooking these kinds of collectibles. But damn. I may have to rethink that position. The price is fair and the quality is astounding. And I know it may not be cool to say it, but I'm still blown away how Marvel Film Studios managed to make Loki's curly horned helmet look so cool. I never dug it much in the comics but... just wow.

This is greatness in a box, end of story.

You were meant to be ruled...by that statue.

That is just as commanding and ominous as in the movie.

dang, looks too real to be true

Me, I'm waiting for a Thanos to make my first Sideshow purchase.

Wow...that is..amazing, for a simple statue. Looks more or less exactly like Tom Hiddleston. Lot of money, but it certainly looks worth it.

That is one hot Loki. (FYI, I'm a girl, so don't get weirded out for me saying this.)

Wow, that is really impressive craftsmanship. Looks like I will adding a new addition to my collection very soon.

I looked at the other figures and I must say that Loki is my favorite one they have currently

#17 Posted by ArtisticNeedham (2239 posts) - - Show Bio

Dang! More things to buy. I would love to buy this, the Captain America, soon Sideshow will be selling a Avengers Hulk sculpture that looks awesome! So much money.

#18 Posted by MasterofChaos (1153 posts) - - Show Bio

Holy wow. That is just perfect. I'd get that, and I don't even collect toys. Never had one that costed more than 15 dollars.

REALLY AWESOME FACE DETAILS! Now I'm waiting for an Agent Coulson figure

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

#21 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6885 posts) - - Show Bio

Man that is great detail! Know what would be even better? A bust of Hulk slamming Loki into the ground like Bam-Bam and his club. I would literally empty my pockets for that statue likeness!

If you've ever wanted to know, look at the process Randy Bowen goes through to make a sculpture. They pretty much make a VERY HUGE version of it, and then it is shrunk down with 3d scanning or some other techniques then a mold is created from the scan. Assuming they're all individually painted.  
 
Here is a good one covering how Mcfarlane toys does their sports figures.

His long hair definately gives a more evil presence.

That's really cool and all, but I want a six-inch action figure of Loki in that very fine civilian suit he had in Germany.

Wow! That's really well done. Oh and you're sending on to my house @Sara Lima, that's really nice thanks :P
