After combing social media and looking at all the comments you guys have posted. We thought we would put together a top 5 shortlist of what you guys would like to see in the future. We hold pride in the fact that we have a strong dialogue with our fans. And we’d love to hear your thoughts. Hey, and who knows, what you want could end up being made…
So, if you have any suggestions on what you would like to see. Let us know on our Instagram/Facebook/Twitter or YouTube. But before you do. Take a look at what our other fans want. And don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter, to see what could be joining your collection soon.
All that said, let’s crack on, here’s What the Fans Want.
Obviously, we had to pick some runners-up, and these guys didn’t make the cut. The runners-up are for this quarter are Captain America, Cat Woman and Hawkeye. You lot seem a little preoccupied with more recent MCU & DCEU characters.
Thor Odinson has been talked about for some time. Everyone wants a Queen Studios God of Thunder in their collection. But which one? The fresh-faced Asgardian from the first Thor movie. With his long blonde locks and his mighty hammer Mjølnir. Or maybe Arena Thor from Thor Ragnarok; wielding the Arena gear that whilst battling the Hulk. Or even, ‘Dad bod’ Thor from Avengers Endgame, sat on a couch, beer in hand, screaming at children on Xbox live.
So many possible versions to choose from. And that in part is why so many of you want him in your collection. He is one of the founders of the Avengers, there is no Avengers without Thor. He also has a vast collection of weapons, it’d be excellent to see Odinson with both Mjølnir & Stormbreaker.
Queen Studios' artists have already confirmed a Thor statue is on the way, but we'll have to wait for more news on the timing. 2021 is shaping up to be a busy year, and we hope he makes the cut.
#3 Wanda Maximoff
Coming in third is the lovely, but dangerous Wanda Maximoff. A Scarlett Witch bust would make a great addition to Queen Studios growing MCU collection. And would look brilliant next to our 1:1 Vision Bust, released earlier in 2021. We are a little less familiar with the Scarlett Witch, compared to say Iron-Man and Captain American. Yet, she has become a crucial part of the team. Earlier this year she got her own tv series starring alongside Vision in WandaVision.
Of all the candidates for this shortlist. Wanda could possibly one of the most challenging to turn into polystone. While her appearance is rather regular. The Queen Studio team are always adding special features to our busts and statues to recreate what's on the screen. So perhaps recreating the Scarlett Witch’s chaos magic would be a cool task for the designers.
As teased, Wanda will be on the way, and likely in 1/4 scale. The date is TBD, but we're really hoping that we can share a sneak peak this summer.
Once known as Uxas, Darkseid is an ancient cosmic New God warlord. Whose ultimate goal is to rule over the entire multi-verse. He is the nephew of our #5 entry, Steppenwolf. He searches for the Anti-Life Equation to use as his ultimate weapon. Although this guy’s goals are ruthless, Darkseid seem to have been a fan favorite for a while now. It seems like Snyder’s cut just has poured more fuel on to the fire. As I’m writing this, I’m not too sure what would be best, A 1:1 bust or a 1:2/1:3 statue?
Darkseid would look great next to the Queen Studios 1:1 Thanos bust. Having both world destroyers facing each other. Or even next to the Queen Studios 1:1 Batman Justice league and Wonder Woman busts. As it stands, it seems we haven’t released too many DC villains. We have Heath Ledger’s and Joaquin Phoenix’s Jokers and a Bane statue. But nothing from the DC Extended Universe. It seems like a bit of a grey spot.
Let us know which other villains from the DCEU you’d like to see.
Finally, at number 1, it’s no other than the original hero. Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings at a single bound. Superman. Born on Krypton. Superman's family sent him to Earth on a small spaceship moments before his home planet was destroyed. Found and adopted by Johnathan and Martha Kent, Superman grew up in plain sight as Clark Kent.
There are quite a few possibilities for a possible Superman bust or statue. So far, you guys have said you would like 1:1 life-size bust of Henry Cavill’s superman. But, others want a comic statue of Superman. A bust would look great as part of the Queen Studios DCEU collection. And a comic statue would look great alongside our Eddy Li Batman and Bane statues. But which poses would be best? The classic red and blue Superman or Snyder’s black and chrome Superman? Get in touch, we'd hate to disappoint.
And that's it. Thanks you for your input on our social media. The WTFW series will be published once every quarter. So make sure you voice your opinions either here, in the comments, or on our Facebook/Twitter/Instagram or YouTube.
