Sideshow Collectibles Can Read Minds With X-Men Psylocke StatueJose Lopez
Sideshow Collectibles has long been making some of the most impressive and affordable Quarter Scale statues with their Premium Format Figure line. For superhero and comic book fans specifically, the brand has been a favorite due to the focus on iterations of characters based on the original source material rather than films or television. Case in point is their newest piece, Psylocke of the X-Men, which is available for preorder right now!
Psylocke is a trained ninja that happens to also be a hugely-powerful telepath, capable of attacking and controlling the minds of others. Sideshow Collectibles has managed to pay homage to both of these facets of the character with this stunning statue. While she can be posed reaching for her sheathed katana, there is swap-out lower right arm that can instead have her exhibiting her pink-hued, iconic “psychic knife”.
The forced perspective background is a genius idea that works way better than it has any right to. I love how the depth of field enriches the wonderfully-sculpted figure of Psylocke in the foreground, giving her Japanese history the spotlight. I’m eager to see just how good it will look when in hand!
The Sideshow Collectibles Psylocke Premium Format Figure is available for preorder now and is slated for release in Q2 – Q3, 2023.
“This challenge is to the death, remember? So how about we see just how good you really are?”
Sideshow presents the Psylocke Premium Format™ Figure, a formidable addition to your X-Men statue collection.
Beautiful and deadly, this psychic mutant is on a moonlit mission of vengeance. The Psylocke Premium Format Figure measures 21” tall and 13.41” wide in a dazzling scene with a unique forced perspective backdrop. Psylocke crouches atop a stone lantern riddled with shuriken that have missed their elusive target. The psionic blade weapon on her right arm emanates the butterfly-shaped effect of her powers. Beyond her, the full moon rises and casts light and shadow across a pair of pagodas that sit further up the mountain path.
The polystone Psylocke Premium Format Figure is fully sculpted and features a dynamic paint application created with the scene’s thematic lighting in mind. She wears her iconic ’90s blue bodysuit with a large red sash fluttering from her waist. Psylocke also carries a sheathed katana, her left hand resting on the weapon in anticipation of her next strike. This skilled mutant fighter also comes with a swap-out right arm reaching to draw her katana blade, adding to her arsenal of display options. With detail at every angle of the sculpt, this Marvel Comics collectible is sure to be the centerpiece in any collection!
