Sideshow Collectibles Releases Original Concept Art Prints To Celebrate The MCU’s 10-Year Mark

The 10-year anniversary of the start of the MCU is a monumental achievement not only for the creators of the empire, like Kevin Feige, Joss Whedon, and John Favreau (to name only a few) but also for the thousands of artists that have used the films and characters for inspiration and foundations for their work.

 

A great market that has always run parallel to the MCU films, for instance, is the world of toy collectibles. Sideshow Collectibles has done amazing work in creating figurines detailed to perfection just like their Marvel character models.

As a special commemoration of the past 10 years of films and toys, Sideshow Collectibles released two limited edition prints showing some concept art inspired by the first Iron Man film (which released 10 years ago, of course.)

 

The art was drawn by Adi Granov, whose work on the first Iron Man in 2008 drastically helped shape the final aesthetic for the film. Granov has been illustrating with Marvel for decades, so he has loads of experience with capturing the essence of characters like Tony Stark, the X-Men, and Captain America, to name only some of his art credits.

For the two 10-year anniversary prints, Sideshow, in partnership with Granov and Marvel released signed prints of two of the most pivotal scenes from Iron Man.

 

These prints come after other original concept art prints were sold following the releases of Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther by the original concept artists, as well. This was done as a celebration of Marvel films, and the prints sold out very quickly. It seems like a no-brainer to release prints from the film that started it all.
