Free Stuff: We’re Giving Away Some of That Sweet Mary Jane (Okay It’s A Statue)
Yes, that's right loyal readers; ComicsAlliance is back with another amazing giveaway yet again. This time, we're offering you the chance to get your hands on one of the limited edition J. Scott Campbell Mary Jane polystone statues from Sideshow Collectibles. Face it, readers, you just hit the jackpot. (See, we said the thing she says, so now you know our geek cred is real.)
Part of the J. Scott Campbell series of statues based on the Spider-Man universe, the Mary Jane figure is an original design inspired by her appearance on the cover of Amazing Spider-Man #601. So far, the line also includes a Gwen Stacy and Spider-Man, with a Black Cat teased for later this year. The pieces are all separate, and not part of a single grand design, so getting just one won't detract from the overall aesthetic.
The sculpt by Steve Schumacher actually does Campbell's art some justice, which was no doubt a challenge given how dramatically his female figures are typically stylized. That said, this Mary Jane is actually a really nice-looking piece. It's not as cheesecake-y as some of Campbell's work, while still capturing the allure of Mary Jane's character. The concept of her draping the Spidey costume over her shoulders to keep herself warm is a clever idea, too.
While your mileage may vary with regards to Campbell's art, this is a really well done statue. As a limited piece (only 6000 were made), it's certainly something we're a little jealous that we'll have to depart with, but at least now you'll know how much we love you. All you've got to do to enter is use the Rafflecopter widget below.
As always, be sure to check out the official rules for all pertinent details.
