Sideshow Collectibles Returns to Horror

The Universal Classic Monsters 8″ Action Figures became the first product line for Sideshow Collectibles and sold through mass market retailers. Fast-forward sixteen years later, Sideshow Collectibles will be remaking some of their early line of collectibles to meet today’s standards in painting, sculpting, and manufacturing.
