I Want That: Thanos on Throne Maquette

Finally getting to see Josh Brolin's Thanos in action for more than a few moments worth of screen time will definitely be one of the highlights of Anthony and Joe Russo's AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR. In truth, the Mad Titan of the Marvel Universe has been quite patient while waiting for the opportunity to collect the Infinity Gems and complete his all-powerful gauntlet. Before long, the Avengers will have to go toe-to-toe with Thanos and his trusted disciples, if they're to save humanity from his wrath and rule. As a comic book fan who's read plenty of Thanos-related stories, I do not envy their position. What I do yearn for though, is for an opportunity to own this super sweet Thanos on Throne Maquette collectible from the talented folks over at Sideshow

Taken from the official press release:

In a recent episode of Sideshow LIVE on Facebook, Sideshow revealed a new prototype of the highly anticipated THANOS ON THRONE MAQUETTE, giving loyal fans a sneak peek at a project that has left many collectors stunned at the scope and ambition of this new imposing collectible. 

An accompanying 'Inside Look' video gave further insight into the inspiration for the piece with in-depth interviews of the Maquette’s creators. The Sideshow creative team shared a unique behind-the-scenes journey that discussed influences, design choices, production challenges and more. You can see that video here.

Addtionally, a 200 piece limited edition art print, inspired by the Maquette, and created by artists Doo-Chun and Ian MacDonald, has also been announced. In typical Sideshow fashion, both the Maquette and the Art Print are will pre-order soon, but lucky collectors can enter for a chance to win both!
