Sideshow Collectibles has a great track record of producing the finest in genre replicas, figures and statues. So when they decided to tackle The Mad Titan, the mysterious big purple baddie that doesn’t like to stand in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you know they were going to go all out.
Sure enough they did.
Pull yourself up an infinity gauntlet and listen to what they did. This incredibly detailed maquette is 21.5” tall, 35 lbs, and took over two and a half years to research, sculpt and produce. The artists involved used the comics as inspiration with little nods to particular moments throughout Thanos’ history. His gesture, posture and expression all dialed in to to let you know that he has purpose and, more importantly, that he is dangerous. As you click through the photos you can see the success with which the artists achieved this goal. His slight shift in weight, the beckoning finger, the slight, imperceptible smirk; all of it an ode to the menace of the Mad Titan, lover of Mistress Death.
With Avengers: Infinity War parts 1 and 2 in production now you’d do well to get this impressive piece of art to get a taste of what’s to come.
