Emma Frost Premium Format Statue (AKA, take my money, Sideshow!)


“Of course I’m a threat. Why? Did you think for a moment that I wasn’t?”

Sideshow Collectibles is now offering this gorgeous Emma Frost Premium Format Figure.  This beautifully sculpted in 1:4 scale statue includes a Hellfire Club themed base, interchangeable portraits with long and short hairstyles and piercing blue eyes that reveal even more than her scant attire.

I was fortunate enough to see this piece in person at SDCC, and it’s a gorgeous sculpt. Needless to say, I’ve already pre-ordered this piece. You can order it here: http://bit.ly/buyemmafrost
