Competition is good for the consumer. It forces companies to do better.

Anyways, I think it is one of the best Wolverind pose. Love the EX head.

Good for sideshow, but not sure there's much benefit for us as consumers.

Exactly.

Iron Studios has their own Marvel license, had it before they dealt with SS at all, but they have distribution through sideshow. SS definitely brings more recognition to these smaller companies by distributing their products. Win win for companies and SS.

This was a big deal when ISís first comic based 1/4 piece, Spider-Man, came out. Because IS couldnít sell to the US people were ordering it through a private distributor. Before it started shipping, IS and SS came to their distribution deal and SS started offering it on their site for US customers.

I do think since IS has the distribution deal with SS that SS is the reason why IS only does one 1/4 comic statue per year, itís probably in their agreement that IS canít do more than one, but I donít know.
