Thanos comes face-to-face with his legendary creator!
Sideshow, who are famous for their high-end, luxury pop culture statues, memorabilia, and collectibles, have unveiled an all-new interpretation of Thanos.
Recently, following the red carpet premiere of “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy” in Los Angeles, Sideshow’s creative team were able to share their vision of The Mad Titan with comic-book legend and Thanos creator Jim Starlin!
Jim spent a day at Sideshow HQ, hanging out with the creative team, poring through the countless concept designs and sketches, and checking out the final prototype of Thanos on his throne.
Sideshow’s Art Director, David Igo, said: “The Thanos on Throne Maquette was a labor of love that went through years of design and development. We aimed to give our fellow collectors ‘an ultimate Thanos,’ combining aspects of all of our favorite iterations of the character as he appeared in paintings, comic books, movies and more–and it looks like Jim likes him as much as we do!”
Sideshow Sculptor Will Harbottle added: “[His gesture is] an homage to the cover of INFINITY GAUNTLET #4. It’s one of my favorite moments in all of comic book history. He’s on the cover, floating in space and he’s saying, ‘Come and get me’! We wanted to reference that awesome moment.”
When asked about his first impression of Sideshow’s huge new Maquette, and that hand gesture in particular, Jim said “The first thing I saw was this finger, beckoning, and I went ‘They got it right!'”
He added: “It’s just a gorgeous looking piece of work entirely. Currently, I think this new statue [is] my favorite.”
David Igo added: “Jim is a constant source of inspiration to us, and it was our pleasure and privilege to share this moment with him. The whole experience has been a dream come true, and we’re incredibly proud to be able to work with Marvel, and to explore this amazing character.”
The Thanos on Throne Maquette was met with praise from critics and fans alike, and the super limited edition Sideshow exclusive variant sculpt–with a second, grinning portrait–sold out in minutes!
