Wonder how the licensing for these 1/4 DC statues in US works with Sideshow.

This will cost the same if not more than the 1/3 scale did originally

OH NO! PRIME 1 IS BEING NICE TO 1/4 COLLECTORS! MY 1/3 IS WORTHLESS NOW! SCREW PRIME 1!!!!!!
I?m probably late, but I know there are people that will probably say and believe the garbage I said above lol.
I think this is great for anyone that missed out or didn?t have room for the 1/3. I sure as hell don?t have room for the 1/3 so this is tempting.

Screw it. Let’s just destroy the industry. I missed XM Hulkbuster. Let’s re-release it too, since it’s being ”friendly to collectors” to destroy the collectibility of items collectors already purchased (some on the aftermarket). Run another 1000x of that statue to be really “friendly to collectors.”

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

Prime 1 will make money off of this but they will never get another penny from me. I?m just one person but if others do the same it hurts the hobby. If a company decides that these aren?t really limited collectibles anymore, I think it hurts their brand overall.

All they had to do was change the pose and I think everyone could be happy. Hell, they could even do small sized scales, as long as people know that from the outset.

Great move for the community.

Kudos to prime 1.

Screw resellers. They're the ones who ruined the statue game.

I wonder if this is P1’s way of saying they may be transitioning to mainly 1/4 going forward. They should considering these idiotic prices. But like some have already said, the Superman will cost close to the same as the 1/3 version.

Anyway….interesting. Did they show the bases in the video? I would guess they’re going to be different or else even these 1/4 statues might be 2 boxes.

Based, and those same idiots wonder why 1/4 scale statues are $1500.

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

I get the 1/3 owners are pissed. But for those of us who doesn’t live in a museum and decided to limit to smaller 1/4, this is great news.

We just went from no good 1/4 Superman(except maybe the old sideshow classic fabric Superman) to 2 great new Superman
