Sideshow New York Con 2021: Event Wrap-Up and Booth Highlights
Sideshow celebrated New York Comic Con throughout the first week of October, broadcasting LIVE from a custom-built exhibition and showcasing some of the latest collectibles from Hot Toys, Premium Collectibles Studio (PCS), Tweeterhead, Quantum Mechanix, and more!
Sideshow’s virtual event featured over a hundred statues and figures inspired by the worlds of Marvel, DC, Critical Role, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Street Fighter, Masters of the Universe, Power Rangers, and Star Wars™ to name a few — and while Sideshow’s celebration continues on our social media channels throughout the weekend (with online game shows, interviews, reward points, special offers, and contests), Thursday, October 7 marked the end of our virtual exhibition set up.
Here are just some of the highlights…
Hot Toys showcased a huge selection of Sixth Scale Figures over the four-day exhibition, with characters from video games, from the big screen, and from the small screen alike. Fans enjoyed epic displays and dioramas from the worlds of Star Wars™, DC, and Marvel. Here are just a handful of the figures on display.
King Shark was a firm fan favorite with collectors. Who thought a maritime criminal / man-eating shark god could be so … cute? Hot Toys’ Sixth Scale Figure captures Nanaue at his most lovable.
Hot Toys’ massive The Mandalorian™ display included Din Djarin™ himself, The Mandalorian & Grogu™ (Deluxe Version), as well as Boba Fett™ and Throne, Fennec Shand™, Ahsoka Tano™, Kuiil™ & Blurrg™, Dark Trooper™, Cobb Vanth™, and an epic diorama depicting the Nevarro™ Safe House scene. Their display also included The Nite Owls: Bo-Katan Kryze™, Axe Woves™, and Koska Reeves™.
The ever-expanding and infinitely entertaining realms of Marvel’s What If…? continue to grow in exciting and unexpected ways.
These poseable Sixth Scale Figures combine the intricate details and meticulously tailored costumes for which Hot Toys are renowned, plus the ultra-stylized animated aesthetic of What If…?, to great effect.
Tweeterhead gave fans a sneak peek at some exciting new Masters of the Universe inspired statues, including several stunning as-yet unpainted prototypes!
Go Go Power Rangers! ThreeZero delivered an epic blast of nostalgia with the Core Rangers + Green Ranger Collectible Set. The display showcased all six of the fully poseable Sixth Scale Figures inspired by the original series. Each figure features a hand-tailored costume as well as a selection of accessories and classic Ranger weapons — including the Power Sword, Power Bow, Power Axe, Power Daggers, and the Power Lance, all combining to form the mighty Power Blaster!

Additionally, the episode broadcast was immediately followed by a live post-posing talk show with the contestants and host Terry Smith.
