Marvel Legends 15 Out Now!

I just read over on that Marvel Legends series 15, the MODOK wave, is hitting Wal-Marts in the US now. It seems a reader in Washington state wrote in to let them know he found them. They had reported earlier that auctions from there had begun to show up on eBay.

This series has Wasp, Spider Woman, Beta Ray Bill, Moon Knight, Captain Marvel and Thor Buster Iron man. The build a figure is MODOK. I just finished finding wave 14 last week so this is unexpected these are hitting so close together. But it's sure to make collectors happy!

Superhero Sightings Becomes Hero Hunt!

I started this blog called Superhero Sightings in September 2005. Since then, it has grown to almost 200 posts. I have really enjoyed doing it, so I have decided to move it to it's own domain and give it a new name and look. I have also expanded the focus to include collectibles and entertainment news outside the superhero and comic book world. My friend Rod will also be posting, so you will see a wider range of topics being covered there.

Hopefully, Hero Hunt will also have better functionality because I am now using Wordpress. You will now see all posts organized by categories so hopefully they will be easier to find. I was able to port all of the content from Superhero Sightings, so everything that was here will be there as well. Update your bookmarks and check out Hero Hunt right now and see what we have to offer.

Check out Hero Hunt for collectibles and entertainment news.

Missing Marvel Issues?

I'm not sure if anyone paid attention to this or not besides me, but I noticed that New Avengers #19 and Squadron Supreme #3 were listed on Diamond's shipping list for last Wednesday. When Wednesday came, those 2 issues did not show up.

I asked my comic book guy what happened to them. He said he had no idea. I tried to find out myself to no avail. Well, I checked tonight, and those 2 issues have been added to this weeks shipping list. Looks like they were a week late for some reason. I was dissappointed they were late, but I was glad to find out they were shipping. You can see Diamond's weekly shipping lists every week here on their web site.

Old West Ghost Rider Maquette from Sideshow

Sideshow recently announced one of their newest collectible statues in the Marvel movie line, the Old West Ghost Rider Maquette. From Sideshow's web site:

Sideshow Collectibles and Marvel are proud to present the West Rider Maquette, based on designs from the upcoming major motion picture, Ghost Rider. Under the supervision of Creative Director Tom Gilliland, the Sideshow creative team studied the conceptual artwork created from the film, and together with sculptor Ray Villafane, translated the conceptual designs into a fully realized sculptural artwork. The prototype was finished with Tom's paintwork, detailing and enhancing the sculpted cowboy clothing, bone, and fire.

The West Rider Maquette is sculpted in approximately 1:5 scale and stands roughly 17 inches tall. Each piece is hand cast and hand painted to exacting standards. West Rider is fully outfitted in cowboy gear, much of which has been consumed by flames, with embers still glowing. The figure is complete with a realistic rope, and the ever-'burning' flames are cast in a translucent material designed to enhance ambient light. Each piece will be packed in a durable molded foam interior for safe shipment, and packaged inside a beautiful full color box.

The Sideshow Exclusive version of the West Rider Maquette includes a base ringed with flames, available nowhere else. Don't miss out! Pre-order the Old West Ghost Rider Maquette from Sideshow today.
