Sideshow Collectibles & Hot Toys to release EXTREME Ichabod Crane figure!

I wish I could say otherwise, but I still haven’t seen FOXTV‘s rendition of Sleepy Hollow; [I know, I know! yell at me later.. I’m behind, I get it!] even though the story is one of my favorites. this would have to mean that Tim Burton‘s film adaptation of the classic story – is one of my favorite Tim Burton films. I just feel that Sleepy Hollow is one of the best stories for Burton, and let’s not forget young and youthful Johnny Depp! the film was perfect. So when Sideshow Collectibles let loose that there will be a figure of Depp‘s Ichabod Crane being released over here, I just had to share my love and desire for it. below, I’ve included [the entire] official product description, which is also broken down into various sections:

Since its first publication in 1820, Sleepy Hollow has been a popular story in American fiction. In 1999 master storyteller Tim Burton wove an eerie and enchanting version of the classic tale of horror starring Johnny Depp as Ichabod Crane, an eccentric investigator determined to stop the murderous Headless Horseman. Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys are delighted to present the Sleepy Hollow sixth scale Ichabod Crane Collectible Figure. The movie-accurate Ichabod Crane Sixth Scale Figure is specially crafted based on the image of Johnny Depp in the film and features a newly developed head sculpt, an elegantly-tailored costume, and a number of highly detailed accessories which Ichabod uses in the movie.

the goods don’t just stop there though, this figure has a fucking ton of features which include [taken from the official site]:

  • Authentic and detailed likeness of Johnny Depp as Ichabod Crane in Sleepy Hollow
  • Head sculpt with realistic facial expression, detailed wrinkles, and skin texture
  • One interchangeable hair sculpt [for when he’s wearing the goggles]
  • Ichabod stands at approximately 30 cm [12 inches] tall
  • Body with over 30 points of articulation
  • Eight pieces of interchangeable palms:
    One pair of relaxed palms
    One pair of partially clenched palms
    One right palm for holding pistols
    One right palm for holding scissors
    One right palm for holding accessories
    One left palm for holding book
  • Each piece of head sculpt is specially hand-painted

Costume:

  • One white shirt
  • One white cravat
  • One black vest
  • One black jacket
  • One black long coat
  • One pair of black boots

Weapon:

  • One pistol

Accessories:

  • One black satchel with rising tray
  • One pair of goggles with one interchangeable magnifying lens
  • One white apron
  • One small book
  • Two magnifying glasses
  • Eight pieces of forensics tools
  • Nine bottles in various sizes
  • Figure stand with Ichabod Crane nameplate and Sleepy Hollow logo

just one of the many pictures released of the figure!

the lovely Ichabod toy [it’s not a toy, Mom! it’s an “action figure”!] is available for pre-order over on their website for a grand total of $234.99 [or $58.75 a month, depending on the payment  plan you go with] and is expected to be released officially in August 2015, which is surprisingly sooner than I would have expected!

So now I look to you. do you enjoy collecting figures? if you do, which ones do you have? I’ll collect them sometimes, depending on what the figure is – and this one is certainly a “want” of mine for the year! be sure to check out Sideshow Collectibles for more awesome pop culture figures.. just make sure you have a heavy wallet first, as some of the toys [FIGURES] are expensive – for good reason.
