Quality Bigfoot collectibles are as elusive as the creature itself, so when I heard that Sideshow Toys was planning to release a statue based on the legendary ape-man, my anticipation was high. And rightly so. This excellent collectible definitely deserves high praise for its overall quality and coolness.
Capturing the elusive American legend in exacting detail, this high quality polystone statue stands 19 inches tall and is presented in approximately 1:5 scale. Each piece is individually painted and finished to exacting standards, each with its own unique quality and detail that is the trademark of a handcrafted Sideshow Collectibles product. Bringing to life one of the most famous examples of cryptozoology, the Bigfoot statue makes an outstanding addition to any collection.
Sideshow Collectibles and Rue Morgue are giving away one exclusive Undying Carcass Premium Format Figure from Sideshow Originals’ The Dead Collection!

For Rue Morgue’s 13th Anniversary Halloween Issue, I was given the opportunity to write about a great new documentary that looks at the highly beloved line of Aurora monster model kits of the 1960s and ’70s and the huge impact they had on “monster kids” who built them. The program, The Aurora Monsters – The Model Craze That Gripped The World (now available on DVD) is a delight to watch and will have fans of vintage monsters collectibles drooling at the many images of gorgeous and colorful box artwork of James Bama, not to mention never-before-seen pics of prototypes for unreleased figures like The Metaluna Mutant (from the sci-fi classic This Island Earth) and kits from the controversial Madame Toussaud’s Chambers of Horrors and Monsters Scenes lines.
