Top 5 Reasons You Should Turn on Notifications for Sideshow Social Media

Longtime fans will know that Sideshow social media is always on the move – from Twitter contests to Facebook daily questions to Sideshow Live and Instagram Afterparties, we’ve always got something fun to share with you!

Did you know you can turn on notifications for when we make posts or go live? ¬†This is one sure way to make sure you don’t miss any of the action! ¬†It’s super easy:

You can choose to see Sideshow content first in your newsfeed, and see alerts when live videos begin. ¬†You can also enable these notifications on Twitter and Instagram, so you don’t miss a single post! ¬†Just visit the Sideshow profile in either the Twitter or Instagram mobile app, adjust your notification settings, and get an alert whenever we make a new post or go live!

Notifications are especially helpful during convention times and special Sideshow events like San Diego Comic-Con, Spooktacular, when previews and announcements and special deals are constantly cropping up. ¬†You just never know what we’ll show next!

Here are the Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Turn on Notifications for Sideshow Social Media!


Promo Codes

If you have ever watched Sideshow Live during Comic-Con or Spooktacular, you’ll know we love giving away special surprise promo codes that can earn you awesome Sideshow Rewards Points and other great deals. ¬†Sometimes these codes appear in tweets, sometimes on live video, but the important thing to remember is you have to act fast to nab the rewards!

Most promo words are only good for a limited amount of time, and if you turn on notifications, you’ll be the first to get an alert when we share one of these time-sensitive specials. ¬†You never know when or where they’ll pop up next!


Random Giveaways

We love to share the joy of collecting with everyone, and one of the ways we spread the love is through random giveaways across our social media!  Apart from our Contests page online, we like to surprise fans every now and then with giveaways on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.  You want to be sure to get your entry in before the deadline, so getting a notification is crucial!

At San Diego Comic Con, there have even been some special giveaways on the show floor that required you to be speedy and find Susan with your answer before anyone else! ¬†During Spooktacular in the fall, content is happening every hour of the day for a whole week! ¬†You don’t want to sleep through your chance to win awesome swag.


Surprise Reveals

Did you catch the unveiling of new Star Wars collectibles like the Obi-Wan Kenobi Mythos Sixth Scale Figure at San Diego Comic-Con 2017? Or the Lando Calrissian Skiff Guard Disguise Sixth Scale Figure at Comic-Con 2018?

Sideshow Live was your first look at the new figure after it was announced at the show, and our social media is a great place to see even more first reveals- because we love sharing surprises with you!

Or, how about the surprise pre-order release of the Jabba the Hutt and Throne Sixth Scale Figure Set, which was seen for the first time ever on another episode of Sideshow Live at the Sideshow Studio? A lot of these first looks will come through our Facebook or Instagram livestreams, so keep an eye out!


Special Live Shows

We regularly post event pages for our weekly Sideshow Live shows on Facebook and Youtube (every Wednesday at 11am PT), but every now and then, Sideshow Live likes to go rogue! ¬†After each Wednesday’s event, we host Instagram Afterparties, where we take a closer look at the statues featured in the backdrop of the episode and answer your burning questions. ¬†Sometimes we have something cool to show you that just can’t wait for the next Wednesday!

During special events like Comic-Con and Spooktacular, you never know when the team will pop up to give you the first look at a new figure or give you the inside scoop on what’s coming next from Sideshow. ¬†Don’t forget those random Rewards Points giveaways that you don’t want to miss out on!


To Keep Up on All the News!

We’re always posting events, sharing news stories, and announcing new and exciting products and promotions. ¬†From Sideshow Live to Spooktacular to Comic-Cons across the country, there’s always something fun happening, and our social media is the best place to keep up with it all.


We want you to feel like you’re at Comic-Con right beside us, taking a look at all the special surprises (and dancing Venom cosplayers!) at the show. ¬†Get special peeks inside Sideshow HQ on Instagram, and rack up the Rewards Points with special giveaway codes!
