Sideshow ‘The Punisher’ Premium Format Unveiled @ New York Comic Con 2018Paul
One of the mecca’s for collectors, New York Comic Con 2018 kicked off today October 4th, 2018 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York. That means plenty of new product announcements are inbound over the next few days as the hottest collectible brands in the business all gather to showcase their latest & greatest and interact with the fans and community. Among these announcements we hope to see new sixth scale figure announcements by Hot Toys or Sideshow (where’s the rest of the Avengers Infinity War line-up?) at the event and tons of great new statues being seen in-person painted for the first time. One of the most exciting things to come out of the event so far for collectors was the unveiling of a brand new Sideshow Collectibles The Punisher Premium Format Figure. Collectors in online groups and forums have been brimming with nothing but positive things to say about this product announcement from Sideshow which for any collectible community is a welcomed, albeit odd change.
It’s no surprise though that people are excited to get a closer look at this Premium Format Figure by Sideshow because the initial shots pouring out of the event hall look incredible and that’s without getting a look at well-lit proper shots from a photographer in most cases. RaddTitan (a popular YouTube personality in the space) recently uploaded a video to YouTube giving collectors a closer look at the Punisher Premium Format Figure so have a peek for yourself!
The attention to detail on this Premium Format Figure by Sideshow is absolutely incredible from top to bottom including the stand that Punisher is standing on which appears to be from the Kingpins Mansion. The base also includes Kingpins cane and quite a few shells from the carnage that clearly just took place. The face paint on Punisher may not be your cup of tea but it definitely suits the character and gives this version of The Punisher a more menacing look. Fans were initially questioning where this look came from but it appears in a few Punisher video games for console you can spot Frank Castle sporting the face paint on more than one occasion.
This dark and gritty look for Frank Castle is a perfect fit for this Punisher Premium Format Figure and the detail throughout including the shirt, utility belt, clothing, boots, etc is second to none. Another very interesting feature of this statue is the smoke coming from The Punisher’s gun – have a closer look at it! Yep, you noticed that correctly – the smoke leaving the barrel of his gun is actually forming the signature Punisher ‘skull’ that the character is famous for. This is a brilliant addition by Sideshow and really elevates the piece from a display perspective. This Punisher Premium Format Figure is not available for Pre-Order just yet but stay tuned because soon as it goes live it will up for Order here @ ToyOrigin.com!
