Johnny Blaze rides again.
Sideshow Collectibles is bringing Marvel’s Ghost Rider to their line of sixth scale figures.
Created by Gary Freidrich, Roy Thomas and Mike Ploog, Ghost Rider made is comic book debut in August 1972 “Marvel Spotlight” #5. A stunt rider who gave his soul to Mephisto to save his father’s life, Johnny Blaze becomes Ghost Rider at night. Consumed by hellfire, with a flaming skull, Blaze hunts evil on a fiery motorcycle.
Sideshow’s new figure, captures Ghost Rider in all his hellfire glory. The 12-inch figure features comic-book inspired costuming with Blaze’s trademark (faux) leather jacket, chaps, sculpted boots and “JB” belt buckle.
Designed and sculpted (in part) by Walter O’Neal, the figure features Ghost Rider’s iconic flaming skull, recreated by Sideshow’s artisans using translucent flames on his skull and around his neck. Ghost Rider comes with three sets of hands (in various states of openness) and a metal chain whip. There’s even a Sideshow Collectibles exclusive version of the figure that comes with an extra set of hands holding hellfire.
The Sideshow Collectibles sixth scale Ghost Rider figure retails for $219.99 and is expected to ship winter 2018. You can pre-order him right now on Sideshow’s website.
