The Man With No Name Sideshow Collectible Is The Most Awesome Thing You Will See All Day

-

The first reveal of Sideshow’s eagerly anticipated Clint Eastwood Legacy Collection is a deluxe 1:6 scale figure that pays homage to whom many consider to be the ultimate Western anti-hero.

A pivotal character in Sergio Leone’s renowned Dollars Trilogy (A Fistful of DollarsFor a Few Dollars More, and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly), the enigmatic gunslinger known simply as The Man with No Name is an iconic figure within the Spaghetti Western genre.

Thanks to a powerhouse performance by the legendary Clint Eastwood, who took an almost silent role and turned it into a masterclass of understated intensity and quiet capability, The Man with No Name has become synonymous with the “outlaw with a strong moral code” archetype, and an indelible part of global pop culture.

Sideshow Creative Director, Tom Gilliland, said:

“Clint Eastwood is a cinematic legend. As an actor, he has portrayed some of the most iconic characters ever to be filmed; but perhaps none so striking and so timeless an archetype as the literally nameless cowboy antihero: The Man with No Name. It has been a career high during my many decades in the collectibles industry to Art Direct this piece, working exclusively and closely with Clint himself.”


The Man with No Name 1:6 scale figure features a stunning likeness of Eastwood as he appeared in The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, complete with his steely-eyed squint and determined expression. 

Sideshow replicated every detail of Eastwood’s costume in meticulous detail. From the weathering on his dusty and battered telescope crowned hat, to the frayed edges of his trademark serape poncho, and even the rust on his spurs.

Sideshow Creative Director, Tom Gilliland, said:

“Sixth-scale is a unique collectible medium. The ability to recreate detail at that scale is both challenging and incredibly rewarding. An often-under-appreciated element to sixth-scale is the costumery. Sideshow has one of the finest cut-and-sew teams in the world, and I say with great pride The Man with No Name boasts the most film-accurate recreation of one of the most iconic outfits ever to grace the silver screen”.


The Man with No Name 1:6 scale figure features several movie-accurate accessories, including his revolver (with the silver rattlesnake on the grip), a lever-action rifle, his cigarillo, and even the rock from the now-legendary three way duel scene.


The Man with No Name 1:6 scale figure is available for pre-order now, via Sideshow.
