Think Geek was running the Dark Knight Returns: Batman vs. Superman for $79.99.

They raised the price back up to $179.99.  I'm glad I put my order in when I did.  The two I ordered should be delivered tomorrow.

I did.  That's why I ordered two of them.  One to sell or trade at my LCS.

You have Nearmint's unboxing, now here Gem Mint's:

Enjoy!

Gem Mint, 

I have to say I really enjoyed your live show the other night.  I didn't watch it live, but I watched it this morning and I thought you at Melvin did a great job.  Felt very chill like a couple pals hanging out talking about comics.  I'll try to catch one live if I can.

Near Mint and Gem Mint did a great job, but I'm personally waiting on the reviews from Thin Mint and Franklin Mint before I make a decision.

Don't forget Peppermint Patty!

When I found this statue he was riding a pole with a lampshade on his head. About 1885 or so and casted from white metal.  Pretty Massive

What do you guys think about Sideshow's upcoming Captain America and Black Widow?

I wish they made Black Widow's facial sculpture look closer to that artwork. I need a Captain America and Black Widow but I'm leaning Hot Toys now unless Prime 1 Studio makes an attempt.

Caved and pre-ordered the Superman (Reborn suit) Premium from Sideshow today. Got the Exclusive one as well. Also grabbed this bad boy a few weeks back :

There are a lot of things I like about this one, but there’s is just something off about the face that I can’t quite put my finger on.

 

I really think they need to make a statue where he’s at least kind of happy. He always scowling but he’s actually a light hearted superhero most of the time. I’d like a statue that shows that.

Sigh, another statue to add to the pre order list. Sideshow has just been absolutely killing me the last couple of years. I had 3 times as many pre orders in 2016 than I have ever had at one time before. And just when I finally get back down to a low number, Sideshow releases a whole slew of statues I just can't say no too. This is so much nicer than the last Black Widow!! Then again, Sideshow has raised their game considerably the last couple years. So glad I passed on that last Widow. 

And I can't wait to receive my Thanos EX. That statue just looks EPIC!! Might be time to cash in some reward points. And as much as I like the new Superman and Wonder Woman, which I already have pre ordered, I am disappointed that Sideshow couldn't finish the original 7 Justice League before releasing a new Superman and Wonder Woman, although I absolutely love the new Wonder Woman. Finishing the original 7 Justice League was one of my main goals when I started collecting statues again. All they needed was Flash and Martian Manhunter. That's one area where Sideshow still needs some major improvement, thier ability to complete lines. Still no Drax for Guardians of the Galaxy and still no Flash and Martian Manhunter for the original 7 JL. 

I am also finally about to send out my 2nd Harbottle Red Sonja statue to get repainted. I am getting it painted in a monochrome style with just the red color. Here is a quick mock up I did awhile back.

I am really hoping this piece comes out really nice.

I will never understand why people don't always order the EX, even if they don't really care for a particular statues EX.  It makes them more valuable and much easier to sell if you ever decide to do so. Even with Sideshow now charging a little bit extra for EX's, I still would never order anything but the EX. The difference in value between the EX and regular with some statues is SIGNIFICANT to say the least. I prefer swap out portraits myself.

Manapul has always drawn one of my favourite flash's. This is one of my favourite statues I have because of that

      February 23-24: Warren, MI at the Macomb Community College!
      This is a GREAT show that I have attended for years.  It is a top 3 show in the state of Michigan and while certainly not as big as Motor City, it has more of an "old school" feel with a higher percentage of Comic Vendors.  This will be my first time selling at it, and I know @catrick339 and @Nick's Comics will both also be setup there too.  I have done a lot of business with both guys over the years so please check out their booths as well, great books, great prices, and slightly above average Hawaiian shirts (catrick only).
      Jim Steranko, Arvell Jones, Keith Pollard and many more comic book and pop culture creators and celebrities will be in attendance. 
      @Rich_Henn will be onsite as well for signatures.
      There are deals to be had at this show, hope some boardies can attend.
