Last week, renowned collectible company Sideshow hosted a Level Up! Week event, a virtual convention-like display showing off recent and upcoming gaming-centric figures. Several manufacturers were represented, including Hot Toys, PCS and First 4 Figures. The variety on display was wide as well, albeit with Marvel’s gaming universes taking center stage.
Marvel’s Spider-Man, Insomniac Games’ PlayStation hit, was the marquee display of Level Up! Week, as well as the follow-up, Miles Morales. Several different suits from the game were on display, such as Spider-Punk, Bodega Cat (with Spider-Cat!), the Negative Suit and more. Hot Toys was largely represented here, with several large-scale figures.
PCS was very much shown off through Capcom’s Street Fighter series, with a pair of Akuma statues celebrating the company’s tenth anniversary, and a massive 1:3 scale Cammy figure based on her first appearance in Super Street Fighter II.
The third big display was First 4 Figures, which was at the show to display its classic Sonic the Hedgehog figure, along with Zelda and Link from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Nintendo also snuck in a new Pokeball replica from The Wild Company, which Sideshow touts as the very first official Pokemon replica collectible. It lights up, too!
