Ol Dirty Bastard Stomps His Way Into The Collection With Sideshow StatueJose Lopez
Sideshow Collectibles makes Wu-Tang Clan fans happy with their latest statue based on the iconic rapper, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, which is available for purchase now!
Sure, there have been collectibles made of great musicians before, but there’s always room for more. While we’ve been lucky enough to get statues made of great stars like Prince, those from the Hip Hop genre are severely lacking. So when Sideshow Collectibles announced that they’re releasing a new piece based on Ol’ Dirty Bastard of the Wu-Tang Clan, I couldn’t wait to get a look at it.
This is obviously an exaggerated, cartoony take on Ol’ Dirty Bastard and his stomping ground. The forced perspective of the environment that the musician is standing within is excellent, creating an atmosphere to the entire scene.
I love how they have the figure stepping out of the Chambers Street subway station with the Brooklyn Bridge looming behind him (which is more or less geographically accurate, by the way). The Brooklyn Zoo callback to the rapper’s famous song is a nice touch, as is the crumbling of the ground beneath his Timberland boot.

“Shame on you, when you step through to the Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Brooklyn Zoo!”
Sideshow presents the Ol’ Dirty Bastard Statue, an officially licensed collectible honoring the legacy of one of Brooklyn’s finest — the American rapper ODB himself.
The Ol’ Dirty Bastard Statue measures 13” tall and 11.5” wide, depicting the one-man army rising up triumphantly from the New York subway while the Brooklyn Bridge towers above him. A Brooklyn warrior MC and an icon of hip hop culture, he stomps down hard on the scene, ready to make his mark on the world.
The Ol’ Dirty Bastard Statue is fully sculpted in a unique forced perspective style with dynamic paint application to give this tribute a larger-than-life presence on your shelf. ODB grips the warped bars of a Brooklyn Zoo cage as his boots crack the stone-like base below when he takes to the streets. The immersive scene features many textures and colors to capture the look of denim, brick, metal, and more in this detailed three-dimensional collectible. Ol’ Dirty Bastard embodies swagger and attitude, with a snarl on his face as he takes his place in the spotlight of the music world.
