Sideshow Collectibles - J Scott Campbell Marvel Statues
I've already blogged about one of my absolute favourite artists out there. Recently, I had a chance to go to Fan Expo and get some signed prints from J Scott Campbell. I was already headed to Toronto, but getting a personalized print from him was one of the main reasons for me to fork over the entrance fee.
Mainly a cover artist nowadays, J Scott Campbell easily has my favourite take on Marvel's Mary Jane Watson. I am clearly not the only one to think this because Sideshow Collectibles teamed up with Campbell for an entire line of Spider-man statues based on his art. Campbell drew up a Spider-man, Gwen Stacy, and Mary Jane Watson which were then made into the absolutely gorgeous statues you see below. The print I will have on my wall shortly is the image that Campbell used for the MJ statue, though I gave up all hopes on owning the actual statue when I saw the price tag on it.
Currently, the pre-order is out for the newest statue in the line based on the Black Cat. I really like the new model, and I keep bouncing back and forth as to which statue I like better: Mary Jane or The Black Cat. One thing that is clear, however, is that I will likely never own either.
