I realize not every aspect of collecting is about figures with lots of cool articulation. There are those out there who like their statues, and in this day and age, like in the action figure market, there are some pretty amazing statues, or in this case, Premium Format figures out there.
Read on to check out a few of Sideshow Collectibles most recent pre-orders.
Hellboy Premium Format Figure
Summoned in close collaboration with the famed creator, this original composition delightfully echoes Mignola’s familiar aesthetic and popular comic artwork with chiseled features, a high-contrast paint technique and recurring esoteric themes incorporated throughout.
Hellboy stands 23″ tall atop a tombstone base, decked out in hand-tailored fabric black shorts, removable trenchcoat, and belt »

If you haven't inhaled Season 2 of Mortal Kombat: Legacy (review) yet - Shame! For those of you that have (okay, if you still haven't, you can look, too), we have a special treat...
