Make my day

They don’t come much more legendary, in terms of stars, as Clint Eastwood. A Hollywood mainstay since his first role in 1955, Eastwood went on from that small part to star in dozens of tinseltown classics. Those movies include some of the biggest and best known films of all time, with the likes of Dirty Harry, Unforgiven, Heartbreak Ridge, and a catalog of spaghetti westerns.

Yet despite all of that, there have been relatively few collectible items featuring Eastwood over the years. It’s a fact that will be seen to in short order thanks to fan-favorite, high-end toy maker Sideshow.

“Clint Eastwood is a cinematic legend. As an actor, he has portrayed some of the most iconic characters ever to be filmed. It has been a career high during my many decades in the collectibles industry to Art Direct these pieces, working exclusively and closely with Clint himself.”

Sideshow Creative Director, Tom Gilliland

Dubbed the Signature Series of collectibles with Clint Eastwood, the new series of 12″ scale collectibles will offer up some of the actor’s best-loved characters. The initial volley will include The Man with No Name, Dirty Harry, and The Preacher.

If you’re looking for authenticity too, then you have found the right line. That’s because the Signature Series was crafted under the watchful eye of Eastwood himself.

Here’s a look behind the scenes…

The Man with no Name

Based on Eastwood’s appearance in Sergio Leone’s essential spaghetti Western film The Good, The Bad and the UglyThe Man with No Name Sixth Scale Figure features a meticulously crafted, hand painted steely-eyed portrait of “Blondie” with his instantly recognizable trademark hat and cigar. The mysterious drifter wears a custom-tailored fabric costume including a dress shirt, pants, a pistol belt with holster, a faux leather vest with faux fur lining, a neckerchief, and a removable serape.
