My Colossus Sideshow Premium Format Exclusive arrived today! I am not currently setup to take official pics at the moment so you’ll have to believe in the above iPhone/Instagram shot taken of the box (which is literally colossal!).


Got an Early Processing Offer for Colossus Premium Format Statue (that I’ve had on pre-order since Halloween 2011) and obviously I accepted. Statue is now shipped; should get it in a few days!

I got into the X-Men a little later […]
