For the honor of Grayskull! Sideshow is proud to present the officially licensed She-Ra: Princess of Power Premium Art Print by Dave Wilkins.

About the Artist: Dave Wilkins' first encounter with fantasy art was Frazetta's Death Dealer; that was the first spark. With a steady diet of Marvel Comics, Godzilla movies, and inspiration from iconic artists like Simon Bisley and Frank Miller, the path was set. Working odd jobs over the years, and drawing in his spare time, Dave's first professional work didn't come until his late 20's. Working as a bouncer in Southern California, he took a second job at Kinkos to have access to a computer. After hours and during lunch breaks, he taught himself Photoshop, scanned drawings, and learned to color and render.
Opportunity struck when a rep from Midway Entertainment saw Dave's work up on the monitors. A month later, he was working in the gaming industry. He currently works as an art director in video games. In his "spare time," he works with DC Comics, Dark Horse Comics, IDW, Marvel, Heavy Metal Magazine, Warner Brothers Entertainment, and Capcom.

"All the Way Past Eternia and Over in the Land of Los Angeles all the way to San Diego Comic Con, comes the Castle of Power, Castle Grayskull. This is one of if not the most exciting and unique Enamel Pin that will be gracing San Diego Comic Con this year.
Officially Licensed by Dreamworks, Han Cholo has created a small version of the Castle we all want to obtain the power of in Enamel form. This Castle Grayskull pin comes with all the details of the OG toy from the 80s and is equipped with Glow In The Dark Action.
Along with the power of Eternia living on your jacket, back back or Bag Strap, Han Cholo is proud to announce the launch of the She-Ra Princess of Power Collection dropping at this years SDCC 2017. The Princess of Power will be debuting not only with the Sword of Protection and the Helmet ring but also with the Princess herself in her own Glittered Enamel Pin for all the Masters and She-Ra collectors out there.

At long last, the Masters of the Universe Ultimates figures are nearing the end of their journey into your hands!
The figures have made the long ocean trek to the Port of Oakland, where they are currently waiting to clear customs inspection. This process will take 3-10 days depending on the level of customs inspection they get assigned, and following that, they will go to our shipping facility to be sent, at last, to you.
We expect to begin shipping orders to you beginning on July 20th (or earlier!), and for the shipping process to take several days to get the large volume of orders out to everybody. Shipping confirmations, including tracking numbers, will be sent out for each order as they are shipped.
We cannot overstate how greatly we appreciate your patience as we built up our infrastructure and process around taking over the MOTU Classics line! Thank you again so very much for hanging in there. We are very pleased with and excited about these figures and can't wait to get them into your hands.
We have also received some questions about the blister packaging for the Ultimates. Our original intent was to package the figures in a resealable clamshell blister. In the production of the figures, the original model for the resealable blister failed the packaging drop test in safety testing, and the factory was not willing to proceed without modification. At that point, creating new molds for a revised resealable package would have added 4-5 weeks to the production schedule, and we were already rushing to get these figures into your hands. So we made the choice to instead use a vintage MOTU inspired, heat-sealed blister package so we could avoid any further delays.
Again, we want to thank you all once more for your support and patience, and assure you that your figures will be in your hands in the coming weeks. We love them and hope you do too!
