but you can leave it to Avi Arad for being so sneaky
he is an admitted GR fan and has said (at least to me )that the GR movie was what he called his own pet project. it seems hes been slowly re-introducing GR to the public in very small doses. like he wants to make sure there is something related to the character sitting in stores. great way to make sure people will be somewhat familiar w/ the character when the movie hits.

Yeah, no problemo. Not sure about getting some in bike mode though. It's an absolute ***** to transform him and have yet to be able to do it correctly... not that I spent that much time doing trying but, it was enough to frustrate me to the point of not doing it ever again.

Avi is brilliant, no doubt about that and it makes me extreamly excited that he's such a big fan of Ghost Rider. To have this as his 'pet project' is very refreshing. It makes me think he'll never let anything bad happen to it... especially now that he learn't a lesson from Elektra.

I'm willing to take out a small country for that. Do you think they accept genocide as payment?

The statue is now available for pre-order...its about 17 inches tall and has real metal details and chain. the only version they have right now is the exclusive edtion which is the figure + a base w/ a ring of fire. very cool
also the price isnt as bad as i thought it was gonna be: $199.00
usually the exclusive edition is slightly more expensive than the regular ed. because of the bonus stuff....so i expect there to be a cheaper version available soon.

here be the link:

I think I'd have to keep it in a special little shrine, with candles burning around it to give it a spooky, flamy effect.

Particularly love the metal and the eye sockets (just right).

So, who wants to buy me a gift?

Anyone?

i can take some pics of mine when i get it...
btw...they do have something there called "flexpay". basically you pay in small installments. think its $66.00 for 3 months...
also their other statues from marvel are still available and at times they will either cut their prices or have some kind of sale going on. good time to sign up for their free newsletter to get info on sales and other cool stuff

Another pic, full shot if nobody's seen it yet....

EDIT: And there's a BUNCH more on the site: http://www.sideshowtoy.com/cgi-bin/c...2006ghostrider



Wow, and I just noticed that the flexpay option has to be ordered by Oct 13th... which is my birthday. I think that's a sign.

yup...Flexpay is the way to go for most folks.
not alot of fans will have the extra cash to spend on a 200.00 statue...at least flexpay takes the sting out a little

But only a little. 200 bucks is a lot of money for a poor actor like me. hehe.... let alone when you consider it's in American moola.

At least our dollar is doing well. Great time to buy it...

hhhmmm....

Default Updated Ghost Rider Maquette

I didn't see a recent post about this, but they have updated the Ghost Rider Maquette at Sideshow Collectibles. If these are already posted then I apologize.
