Sideshow’s May the 4th: Event Overview and Schedule
Sideshow’s May the 4th event celebrates Star Wars™ in its entirety, from the light and dark sides of the Force to the galaxy’s greatest heroes and villains. On Wednesday May 4, 2022, we are bringing you livestreams, giveaways, and games to get you as excited as an Ewok™ after the Empire’s defeat on Endor™!
Read on below for a breakdown and schedule of the day’s streams, and get even more details at side.show/maythe4th.
There will be giveaways going on across our official social platforms as well as in Sideshow’s official Facebook groups. To help bolster your chances to win, you should follow Sideshow’s official pages and channels, click those notification bells to be alerted when we post, and keep an eye out for when we go live.
Social Media Giveaways
We’re playing our Sabacc™ cards close to our chest for these ones! Follow us and keep a look out for your chance to win. While we won’t tell you the prizes, we will tell you the difference between the two types of social giveaways.
Flash Giveaways are quick 15-minute contests held on Sideshow’s official social media accounts. You will have only 15 minutes to follow the prompt given on the social post, and a winner will be selected from qualifying entries.
Giveaway Challenges are contests held on the Crowdpurr platform at sideshow.live. A social media post will go live directing you to Crowdpurr with a special hashtag and access code. Once the contest begins, you will have 30 minutes to complete the challenge described and submit your entry. A winner will be selected from qualifying entries, and all entries have the potential to be showcased in Sideshow’s wrap-up livestreams and blogs.
Grand Prize Giveaway
The grand prize of the event is the General Obi-Wan Kenobi™ Mythos Statue by Sideshow. You can enter for a chance to win via side.show/mt4giveaway. or visit the Sideshow Contests page. This giveaway opens on May 4, 2022 — so keep your eyes peeled!

It wouldn’t be May the 4th without a deep dive into the Temple records! Join for Trivial Cahoots, a game where the audience gets to participate LIVE at 4pm PT that day. You’ll answer between 15-20 trivia questions using a mobile device as their buzzer. Correct answers will be reviewed by the Council. Winners get Sideshow rewards for their account and bragging rights (but may not be granted the rank of Master).
Unsealed and Revealed
Unsealed and Revealed is the most in-depth look you can get at the newest sixth scale figures, from Hot Toys to Sideshow originals to Mondo and more! Unsealed and Revealed offers an up-close, detailed look at each piece from a variety of angles. You’ll be able to see the full figure, its many accessories, any swap-outs or exclusive editions, and the full range of motion and articulation.
On May the 4th, we’ll feature a special Star Wars collectible. Tune in at 10 AM to find out which figure!
Cobbled Cosplay Showdown
Are the sci-fi costumes your favorite part of a galaxy far, far away? If you’re into clothes, makeup, and watching people stress out over time constraints and fashion faux pas, Cobbled Cosplay is the one for you to watch.
During Cobbled Cosplay, contestants are tasked with recreating a surprise costume in 10 minutes using only household objects and found materials — winner takes home the prize, or in this case art print, that they are cosplaying as.
This episode features two Sideshow staffers as the contestants! Who will emerge victorious? Tune in LIVE at 2pm PT on May the 4th to find out.
