Holy! This thing is selling as if it were Star Wars. Of the 900 exclusive pieces, there are currently only 30 left!

It is pretty cool. Nice price, too. Unfortunatly I just don't have the funds right now. Hopefully the price won't be to high on the secondary market.

i got mine preorder. And they are sold out in one day. I would get on the waitlist now if you want the exclusive lithograph by Adam Hughes.

I think this one is better than Emma Frost. Worst case situation is that if you want to cancel when you get the preauthorization heads up, you can.

Mr_Almeida
03-31-2007, 12:51 PM
You convinced me. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif I got on the wait list. I think I might just order the normal version though, I can go without the lithrograph.

The reason I didn't pre-order right away is because I haven't decided if I want to collect Spider-man figures from outside of the movie.

i was excited about this when the preview was posted, but seeing the actual pose made me cringe... she looks way too long and way to skinny >_<

its a shame, because i really love MJ... hopefully, sideshow will fix the sculpt and i'll pick up the regular edition (I dont think the concept art is one of hughes' best either... >_<)

There were a coupla Spidey artists in the early 90s that always gave her really weird proportions like that... I don't see how she didn't die from malnourishment or something. Same thing with any He-Man action figure. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

This is a cool piece and all... but it's WAY to hot. Seriously. I couldn't conceive of explaining to a future wife or pretty much any female that ever saw it why exactly I owned this piece. Too bad.

I have this on PreOrder but not through SSC, the litho isn't enough of an exclusive to pay the extra taxes and fees that come with order through SSC Direct. I have it on order at Fireside Collectibles for 106 plus shipping.

Sorry if this apparent uproar is old news to you folks, but figured I'd share.

Theres a lighthearted little video on MSN that has the guy from "Who Wants to Be a Superhero" talking with a reporter about it. Its more of a discussion about the show than the maqueete, but its amusing. All I have to say is too bad for Feedback that he's already married because the reporter was all over him. LOL.

I guess none of these people offended by it have seen the Anime / Manga statues put out by Kotobukiya in Previews Magazine every month? Some of those borderline child pornography, but MJ doing her husbands laundry is offensive. What a world we live in.

sambuca
05-19-2007, 02:32 PM
Yeah, IMO, it's just a bunch of husbandless women (possibly due to non-straight orientation) who have nothing better to do than ruin our lives, if they can.

I really thought is was a nice looking little statue. In my teenage days reading Spidey way back when, I was always hot for the feisty, fine Mary Jane Watson.

This comiquette captures everything I liked about MJ back then. I don't think it's something I would buy now, but I don't see how that is any more offensive than the teens I see at the mall wearing far less, and goodness, they have a butt and breasts as well! We had better complain to their mommies and daddies about the fact that girls in today's society have breasts and a butt, and they aren't married! As soon as a woman gets a butt and breasts, they had better be married!

Ok, that's as lame and pointless as those women's side of the argument.

BTW, have they been complaining about any MALE statues? I'll bet Sideshow has made statues/busts/comiquettes of MALE characters for years, some with possibly no shirt and maybe... nipples??? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

If a man has nipples, we should censor that too!!! Especially if the man is unmarried!

Thanks for bringing this up and great rant. I hope they don't cancel this as the White Queen was much more seductive than MJ. I love this piece and it represents the MJ that I grew up with.

It's a statue, do you think little kids will ever get their hands on it? No,so stop your complaining. Hasbro's Black cat figure is a little revealing too. (I.E. Her boobs)

I have known Adam Hughes and his girlfriend for a few years. He aren't close by any means but we did have a conversation about the controversy reguarding this statue. The ironic is that if you look real close at the statue you will realize MJ isn't actually wash the clothes. It's a clothes BASKET used to carry laundry. The scene is supposed to depict MJ finding Peter's costume for the first time. There is nothing demeaning about it. I guess stupid whiney people always want something to complain about though.

Well,less than 15 to 20 days till she ships out. I am so excited about this piece. Talk about a great addition to the old collection.

I wonder if all the hoopla about her has died down now, or is it going to be increased with her release.

DarthHippie
09-03-2007, 10:28 AM
I live under a rock and didn't even realize she was causing a stir. I've just read about it and watched the MSNBC report on you tube. Kind of funny. It will be interesting to see what the reaction is, if any, now that it is coming out.

When I ordered I didn't know if I was going to keep the order, but since some people find it offensive, I'll probably keep her.

Question for those in the know....

I've got the Mary Jane Comiquette that I want to sell, but I hardly ever see any of these for sale. So does anyone have any insight about what it might go for? It has been displayed, but is in perfect condition.

Thanks!
