You Are All Beneath Sideshow’s Loki Premium Format Figure
Devilishly handsome. Magnificently deviant. Criminally charming. Loki is many things, and now you can count stunning masterpiece among the superlatives bandied about when discussing the Marvel Cinematic Universe's trickster god. Thanks to Sideshow Collectibles, fans of Tom Hiddleston's incarnation of the character will soon be able to swoon over a premium format figure of the blue-eye mischief maker. Teased earlier this year, the large-scale statue is a tremendous piece of work, and one that captures the danger and attraction all at once.
Captured in his guise from the first Avengers film, Loki is presented in his horned helm and traditional deep green garb. The lengthy fabric cape is a brighter shade, and complements the dark, leather-like pants and jacket trimmed in gold. There's a lot of terrific detail in the figure itself, including some outstanding texturing throughout the sleeves and chest. I don't know who does Loki's tailoring, but the facsimile job Sideshow does in on point.
Equal attention is paid to his scepter, which appears to be both alien and eerily reminiscent of Loki's aesthetic all at once. The entire piece however would fall apart were the likeness not there, and Sideshow's sculptors have done great work bringing Hiddleston's face to life here. While I wish the portrait offered more than the standard glower we see villains get so often in figure form, there is a glint of personality there beyond wanting to destroy Thor and everything Asgard represents.
The Loki Premium Format Statue is available for pre-order now for $459.99, and is expected to arrive in Q4 2016.
