Sideshow Collectibles J. Scott Campbell Spider-Man Collection Mary Jane Polystone Statue

"Face it, Tiger... you just hit the jackpot!"

Mary Jane's first words to Peter Parker, is one of the most famous quotations in superhero comic book history. The quotation is duplicated in nearly every continuity in which Mary Jane appears and repeated in nearly every flashback to their first encounter.

Mary Jane Watson is the quintessential girl next door, exuberant and charming, she's the light of Peter Parker's life. Designed by the incomparable J. Scott Campbell, Sideshow brings this irresistible comic siren to life in the Mary Jane Comiquette, the first release in our J. Scott Campbell Spider-Man Collection. Cast in high quality polystone, MJ is hand painted with a new high-contrast technique, creating added depth and dimension to each piece.

The statue measures 11.5" H x 5.75" W x 5.75" D and was sculpted by Steve Schumacher, painted by Kat Sapene and, of course, based off of J. Scott Campbell's design. I'm not a big fan of statues because they are usually cast in stone in a fixed pose with zero articulation plus there are no 1/6 scale fabric outfit / costumes or accessories including highly detailed weapons but this really is a very nice statue :) all thanks to J. Scott Campbell's beautiful design. Scroll down to see the rest of the pictures of this beautiful statue, including some taken at the 2013 SDCC.

Mary Jane Watson, often shortened to MJ, is a fictional supporting character appearing originally in Marvel comic books and later in multiple spin-offs and dramatizations of the Spider-Man titles as the best friend, love interest, and one-time wife (as Mary Jane Watson-Parker) of Peter Parker, the alter ego of Spider-Man. This was after the tragic death of Gwen Stacy, and initially upon her introduction, she had a friendly rivalry with Gwen for Peter's affections. (source: wiki)

Actress Kirsten Dunst played Mary Jane in the Spider-Man film series with Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker / Spider-Man. Gwen Stacy (Bryce Dallas Howard) was introduced in Spider-Man 3.
