Oh boy! A Premium Format virgin am I, no longer. Yesterday I received both the SSC Exclusive X-Men Diorama and Doctor Doom.

These pieces are AMAZING! Pablo and the rest of the Gore Group did an exceptional job with these.

So, anyway here are some pics of Doom...

I just wish Doom came out of his throne. You know he had to be designed that way since he's sitting on his tunic and cloak. It would be easier to get to the gun too.

Those pics make the exclusive seem really mandatory now. Lay his gun there on the pedestal, and the angle of his head makes it look like he is looking down and deciding whether to have something to drink or grab his gun and shoot somebody. Looks like a great piece, folsom!

Very impressive! I like the small details like the impressions on the arm rest from his elbows. Great job by the SSC artists.

Now lets see the Emperor sitting on his throne.

ooh! sweet pics! i gotta get his gun out. this dang hood is so tricky to get looking decent, maybe SS or the board here should hold a contest on who can get Doom's hood to look the best!! mine looks okay, but it keeps reminding me of the Spectre lol.

I can see you Mookey. :D

Great pics guys, and congrats on the awesome pick-up. So glad I grabbed one of these, my favourite piece - fantastic job Pablo & Sideshow. I was trying to get at the gun and holster but it's really tight in there and I got worried I might break something. Folsom's pics have made me even more desperate to get at that gun now! :bow

Here's a couple of pics showing how I have set up Doom's hood....for now:

Very nice pics, Resin Dog! Are you using a digital SLR? What make and model is it? very nice! Nice use of a neutral background too. In my home, light is a bit of a commodity as I don't have many lamps so I used the natural light coming through the blinds.

About that gun, once I got it out and wanted to put it back in, (Yes, I put it back...), it didn't want to get in there between Doom's arm and the throne. I was worried for a second until I turned the gun the right way and it more or less slid back in to the holster. I carefully pushed down the flap of the holster and gently, I think, pushed the pin back in to the holster, securing the gun. I'm just really glad I didn't wreck any part of the figure, making it a non-mint piece.

I agreee. I put myself on the waitlist for the exclusvie this morning. Hopefully it will go through.
All though I could get him cheaper through a retailer since I can live without the chalice.

WTF!!! You mean Doom has a GUN hidden in there somewhere? :google

Seriously - I got my Doom, slapped him up on the shelf and that was it.
I had not a single clue that he's got a Luger stashed in there!

Frikkin' amazing. Wonder what else I've overlooked on things! :banghead :doh

I was wondering where you got the luger from..I could feel the gun through the holster but i never had the guts to fish it out..=)

Here is how i fixed my hood...

http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y32/shoecatalog/2-18-06DOOMhood002.jpg

I prefer a slight overhang over the head like the Jedis...kinda makes him look Darker and meaner..=)

http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y32/shoecatalog/2-18-06DOOMhood001.jpg

I also rounded the top and let the sides have a droop...so it lays naturally down...almost like my bowen doom..=)...

His whole face is covered in shadow....just perfect.

excellent work sideshow this is your best ever..:joy

Now I see the gun on the pedestal I almost regret cancelling mine, he looks awesome. I just don't fancy the character and with so much coming out I need to make choices....

nice pics everyone!
ok i need some input. been changing Doom's hood around and i'm not sure which one i like the best. the "Spectre" look's cool. i know some artist have portrayed him w/ a widow's peak before but it must not've been many. did a search and found VERY few pics w/ a widow's peak, so i tried other looks.

#1. Spectre type widows peak as previously in this thread but tweaked the sides to not look so straight/stiff.

http://img70.imageshack.us/img70/2309/dsc000550za.jpg

#2. rounded top w/ no peak at all. going for a bit of a jedi look.

http://img68.imageshack.us/img68/6920/dsc000790id.jpg

#3. upward peak toward the side (tried an upward peak in the very center but didn't look that good). subtle curve to almost cover his left eye.

http://img50.imageshack.us/img50/6153/dsc000656ao.jpg

#4. and the last. a bit of a curve towards the opposite side but i also tried to make the fabric lay farther down his chest, like gravity was pulling it at that angle.

http://img203.imageshack.us/img203/7141/dsc000849ej.jpg

i tried to make the hood look as close to pics as i could but the hood opening is just too large. most pics portray him like this (or close to it)...

http://img50.imageshack.us/img50/6090/drdoom4on.jpg

but there's no way u can get the sides of his hood that close to his face (short of cutting out wire and fabric which i'm NOT doing. could end up making the back or sides of the hood look weird). the opening's just too big.

anyway, i like the #1 (Spectre) and #4 (gravity) looks the best. gimme some feedback please.

The cracks seen in the lower part of the picture are normal right?

I was ready to reply "of course" those are supposed to be there. That's the death side of the throne and it would make sense that it would have cracks like that. But on close examination of mine it doesn't appear to have the same hairline seperation.

I like pic#4. Gives him kind of a Mac Daddy look. My second choice would be #1. The most traditional look. Years ago I had FF #5, the first appearance. Great book. He's one of the best villains Stan Lee ever thought up. Congrats on a great figure!

Anybody else have these cracks on yours? Both back sides of the throne have them. Not sure if I should send it back or not? Or shouldn't I worry about it?

I know of Doom and remember some from the Spiderman cartoon growing up but looking at this piece of art(incredible) from SS made me do a search. here's a good link for those who loved the piece but don't know anything about his origins:

I didn't want to start a new thread but instead add to an existing one with my new baby. This is my absolute favorite SSC piece and is the Holy Grail of my collection. I would sell off everything I own before touching this one and this easily moved my Master Replicas Luke ROTJ v2 out of the top spot. Thanks Loki!

He actually has his very own small end table in my office, nothing else around it, nothing else on it. Perfectly displayed. The Kitchen Shots are part of a homage to War-Gar.

You must carry on the "kitchen tradition" now.

So, all of my new arrivals will be photo'd in the Kitchen. I've never actually posted any full shots of my office.

This statue is the greatest. I didn't collect PF until I saw Sideshow's Doom. I always liked the design of the character but was never a FF fan. This statue so superbly mixes technique, aesthetics, character design and personality, it is undoubtedly a masterpiece. And yes I own one but no pimp cup.

thing that is weak in my opinion is the ''hard to make it look good '' hood and the feet of the statue dont touch the ground.other than those 2 nitpick, it is superb.

I made my hood look great.. However I agree, most don't have the touch I have and blow it.. Also the Foot thing is weird..

Best part of the peice is the detail on the throne.. You need a mirror behind it to completely let it shine..

Zoinks! as Shaggy would say!

This statue is truly a beauty and a masterpiece and it has set the benchmark for the PF's which were to follow it.
It's an incredible piece which shows Dr. Doom's intimidating presence. There is doom to come for all those who dare to oppose the ruler of Latveria and this statue shows that fear and danger perfectly. Victor von Doom is one the supervillains in the MU and this statue honours his legacy and reputation.

Great statue; two thumbs up!

Best regards,

Rainer
