Oh that’s odd... I would have thought it was a promotional thing sent to all customers all at once because of the coupons. But that’s an interesting way to do it marketing-wise.  I assume everyone will, then, eventually get one.

See that's the thing I got to thinking about, my last purchase was the end of last year. I'm wondering if the one you got was a "newer" one than mine... there was a coupon statue I plan to get at the end of the month, which is low in stock now maybe due to coupon books.. . Sigh, or, or maybe I'll make the purchase and get a new coupon before Christmas. :wishluck:

PM me regarding your purchase... if any of the coupons I got are transferable and will help you, they’re yours. There’s only one the 4 that I got that I can see helping... and if there’s an expiration date on it that’s relatively soon I’ll happily give you that one too if it’ll help.   I don’t plan on a purchase probably until the fall... as I’m trying to save up for an art purchase right now.

Did everyone get that package from Sideshow today? With the color book with a tour of the studio along with the coupons?  It was really nicely done.

Made me think, though, of a casino and it’s cheap buffet ... if Sideshow can produce and give away something this nice for free... they must be making a killing off us on their products.  :bigsmile:

 

Can you post images? I don't remember receiving any free books with coupons. Although these days a lot of their coupons seem to be for in stock and at times select items only. I tend to like rewards points more since you can keep adding to those. I'm looking forward to picking some points up hopefully during Comic Con. But it's true Sideshow can give out points and coupons so much because they are making it up on the margin on statues. People talk on the other forums about their cutting corners on production paint and packaging. It looks like they finally got a Red Sonja close to the prototype after like three tries.

 

I saw XM Studio added more concepts of their upcoming DC 1/6 statue line. I like this Superman concept. Very similar to the Prime 1 Studio Jim Lee Superman but with a better base. Not too sure about their Batman though.

No one seems to be able to make a classic Justice League group. Prime 1 Studio and Hot Toys are making good statues and figures but they are either from the new movies or the New 52.

I haven't gotten any mailers or coupons from SST recently, but I also haven't bought anything from them for a few months. Sometimes I don't get coupons that others get, and sometimes I get coupons that no one else seems to get. It's odd. I guess they have some sort of algorithm for determining who gets one?

For the moment, I am hoping it sinks further into place. The mounting part at the bottom of the gorilla's foot will not go into the seat of the base properly. If it does seat better then I will move it out a few inches so I can spin it.

heavy statue and the metal post at the base of the foot does not want to go in the mounting hole.

Nice to look at though.

Happy that you guys appreciate the statue. I have shown pictures of it to some of my best friends. One of them commented that the statue "would make a good coat rack, and you can hang your hats from the gorilla's teeth".

The comment honestly surprised me. I am not the type to pass judgment on what someone else collects/ appreciates but now I can't wait to be shown their latest comic purchase so I can retort "a new floor mat for your wet and muddy shoes?"

I love my statue. I think about the fact that a very talented and skilled artist sculpted the piece. The careful planning involved in creating the mold. The detail achieved in the piece is amazing.
