A ways back I wrote a completely overpriced want of the week about the soon to be release, J. Scott Campbell inspired Mary Jane Watson statue from Sideshow Collectibles. I believe I even mentioned this Gwen Stacy statue in that article.
Back then I was all about the MJ statue. And, rightly so! I mean, look at it! It’s a great looking statue!
Well…when Sideshow Collectibles “officially” released the Gwen statue for pre-order, I realized something. No. Not that I couldn’t afford either statue. I already knew that. Hence this “completely overpriced want of the week” article that you’re reading 1. No. I realized I wanted the Gwen Stacy statue more than the MJ one.
Hard to believe, right?!?!
Now, that’s not to say I don’t want the MJ statue anymore. Hellz no! If the big guy sees fit to send that statue my way, I’m certainly taking it. I’m just saying, if the big guy instead sees fit to send me down the 270 bucks and I gotta pick between the two, I’m taking this Gwen statue.
There are so many more “clever” things about this Gwen Stacy statue over the MJ one. Take for instance, the umbrella ella ella ella. It’s a freakin’ Spidey mask! Check it out:
When I first saw the production pics of the statue, I didn’t even “see” the mask. Again, it wasn’t until Sideshow released the statue for pre-order that I realized the umbrella ella ella ella was Spidey’s mask! Tell me that’s not clever.
And the rain. Check it out! Pretty flippin clever how it “pings” off her Spidey Umbrella and the ground around her, amiright?
Don’t bother. I know I am.
Then there’s Gwen herself. Hubba. Hubba. Probably best to let the pics do the talking for me:
I know. I know. I know what you guys are thinking. And I gotta tell ya, you guys are real pervs!
