SOOOO much more can be done for a modern take with the talent and skill that SS has hired. And especially with Jeremy Renner being recently the talk of the news with his recent accident...one think..
I hope Jeremy Renner gets well soon.

I understand you, i am in the same boat with you when it comes to Nightwing. Why no love for Nightwing, SS. :/

Feel bad for Taskmaster fans - that Black Widow movie did him ZERO favors. Had the M-She-U done his character justice, this statue would've moved a few more units easily. It was a terrific creation by SS but it also didn't have an amazing EX like the Green Arrow PF's.


Keeping hope alive for that Classic Deathstroke as well.

Sideshow Taskmaster PF is perfection, but unfortunatly i have no attachment to the character.
Cool man. I’m glad the sword works for you. IMO, making it so you end up with a PF that’s 25” wide (4” wider than it is tall) creates all sorts of logistical issues, including trying to fit the thing in any sort of cabinet with doors. Then, you tack on it’s another Captain Morgan pose, a chintzy little base, and more awful softgoods, and the thing is just a loser of a statue.

The sword is silly to me, but taste is subjective, so if you want to say the sword is fine, go ahead. It just leaves you the need to come up with some other explanation why the statue failed. I personally don’t think the character’s popularity fully explains why they can’t give him away, since Sideshow doesn’t have any issues selling out comparable runs of well made statues of original characters (e.g. Rebel Terminator). In contrast, they took a long time to sell out of the last (garbage) Deathstroke PF as well. IMO, quality plays a role.

I just watched a few videos of the Taskmaster. Not horrible in my opinion. I'm just not the biggest fan of the skull sculpt. It does look pretty comic book accurate but still feel in my heart of hearts that if they did a Hawkeye instead, we would be discussing a sold out statue as opposed to one that is still yet to be sold out. Just my humble opinion. Then again I suppose it all depends on the edition size.
