Sideshow toys continues to expand its Marvel Cinematic Universe slate of offerings with some impressive new prints.
Sideshow is not really all that well-known for it’s art prints. There are companies out there that are, and it’s not like Sideshow doesn’t carry printed artwork, it’s just that it’s not really what you’d first think of when you hear the name. Instead, you’d likely conjure up an image of some of the finest 12″ scale figures and statues around. Bar none on that end of things.
Now though, the collectible-maker has announced that they’re seriously expanding their stable. Working within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sideshow will be producing a series of fine art prints. Based on the likes of Hulk and Thor, these are no simple pieces of one-off art either. Instead, these series will be official key-frames from Marvel’s films.
It’s bound to be some impressive stuff, given Sideshow’s attention to detail. Seems like the men behind the actual art think so too.
Marvel Studios Head of Visual Development, Ryan Meinerding, said:
“It’s an incredible honor to have our work brought to life through the Sideshow. Having our concept art celebrated in such a dramatic format is a rare treat that gives fans a chance to see Vis Dev’s influence on some of their favorite characters and moments. Sideshow’s reputation for delivering excellent products coupled with the fact that they are all fans themselves makes this collaboration a truly inspiring one. It’s always amazing when a piece of our concept art is released to the world, and even more so now that the fans can own it themselves!” Marvel Studios Visual Development Supervisor, Andy Park added:“Sideshow is the standard when it comes to celebrating the fandom’s needs with their amazing line of figures and statues. I have been collecting their statues for years now, and to have my artwork presented in their premium art print collection is truly an honor.”Featuring fan-favorite images that have appeared in the Marvel ‘Art of Film’ books, and on highly sought after promotional teaser posters, the collection will include work by celebrated artists Ryan Meinerding (Marvel Studios Head of Visual Development), Andy Park (Marvel Studios Visual Development Supervisor), Adi Granov (Marvel Studios Lead Concept Artist, and Marvel Comics Cover Artist), and more!
