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.
