Just letting everyone know that the new website launched last Wednesday so head on over and check it out. Sign up for an account and subscribe to the newsletter and see what Red 5 Collectibles has to offer.
Walloping web slingers a lot of new arrivals today so let’s get into it shall we. First up is the DC Comics with several new items from statues, action figures, and trade paper backs. Let’s start with the statue releases as two of DC’s big boys Superman and Batman are immortalized by the good folks at Kotobukiya. Superman is the first release in DC Comics PVC 1:6 scale statue line which is similar to there Star Wars line but you don’t need to snap it together. A great pose of Superman getting ready to defend the world from evil an awesome piece for any comic book fan. The dark knight is the next release with a magnificent Batman Wall Gargoyle statue made by Kotobukiya. Not to scale with the Superman release this piece has amazing detail and has Batman sitting atop a gargoyle overlooking Gotham City, look for the 1:6 scale Batman later this year.
DC Direct releases Crisis on Infinite Earths Series 2 & 3 two great releases based on the hit comic book series. Series 2 features the following:
- Earth 2 Superman - Barry Allen Flash - Battle Armor Lex Luthor - Robot Brainiac - Anti-Monitor
Series 3 comes with the following:
- Batman - Dr.Light - Earth-Prime Superboy - Huntress - Weaponer of Qward
So make sure to pick these bad boys and girls and continue the action from the pages of the comic book. Speaking of comic books here are the DC trade paper back releases:
- Superman: Red Son: A what if story of what would happen if Superman was raised in Russia. - Superman: Birthright: tells the exciting origin of the man of steel, collecting the legend into a brand new-epic tale. - Superman/Batman VS Alien/Predator: Book 1 of 2: Not much I can say about this one other then let the Battle Royal begin.

Back once again everyone with some news of loads of new product landing at the shop this week. First up is Sideshow Collectibles and there amazing 12 inch Star Wars characters and the introduction of 2 new lines. The first one is called Lords of the Sith and first up in this series is Darth Maul and what more can I say but you need this figure. Darth Maul comes with the following:
- Detailed Belt with lightsaber clip - Lightsaber with Duel Ignited Blades - Lightsaber with Single Ignited Blade - Lightsaber Hilt - Electrobinoculars - Multiple Interchangeable Hands
Just an all around amazing figure and if you pick this one up you won’t be disappointed. The second new line to debut from Sideshow is Scum & Villainy and offers not one but two items to kick this line off. The first figure is Jabba the Hutt’s right hand man Bib Fortuna. Again an amazing all around figure beautifully sculpted and designed Sideshow continues to be a leader in Star Wars collectibles. Bib Fortuna comes with the following:
The second release in this new line is the Salacious B. Crumb Creature Pack featuring Jabba’s favorite Kowakian monkey-lizard. Along with Crumb you also get another hanger-on (literally) in the limpet-like creature Ghoel. Then there’s the frog-like creature know as the Worrts who actually live outside Jabba’s palace but is also included in this pack. Both the creature pack and Bib Fortuna are set in the theme of the first releases for Scum & Villainy as they all fit in with the Jabba the Hutt 1:6 Scale figure which is slated to release later this month or early March.
