Mezco Toyz is releasing a 20 inch version of the Caped Crusader in their Mez-Itz style. The price is a bit steep at $200, but if you are a fan of the bat then it is a no brainer. Mezco has yet to release how many of these will be made. The box alone will be the size of a dorm room fridge. This one, perhaps, should be ordered online and shipped home. Pre-Orders are being taken now (here).
All right, most of us have a William Shatner action figure floating around at home. After all, how we can we not? Bif Bang Pow! will release 2 of Shatner’s classic Twilight Zone characters in one box at Comic Con. The sculpt, 8 inches tall and officially approved by Shatner, will come with two different outfits. As action figures go, this is great. As for it being a Twilight Zone collectible, it is perfection!
This is for anyone else who is still in bewilderment that Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World came and went with out as much as a whimper. Those of us in the geek culture fully appreciate all that Edgar Wright and crew put up on screen. Their effort and cinematic joy makes the Mezco Toyz Scott Pilgrim variant all the more worth it. Sadly, with the presale, it is already sold out (seen here). Look for some on the show room floor at Comic Con or perhaps Mezco will be gracious enough to have some for a sale in San Diego.
The Green Lantern movie has divided many Geeks this summer. This Geek in particular has ignored many of Mattel’s Green Lantern SDCC exclusives for better properties. This one, however, has that perfect retro appeal. The packaging is by Medicom & Diamond Comics which sets it perfectly in the vein of the old Super Powers figures. Though not a huge fan of the Be@rbrick line, that packaging caught our attention. Nicely done.
Who doesn’t love Doctor Who right now? The perfect desk top accessory will be at Comic Con this year from Bif Bang Pow!. Limited to 3000 pieces and priced reasonably at $15, you can easily dream as Sexy here will take you to distant places. Bif Bang Pow! will have several other bobble heads featuring Dexter, Lost and the Eastbound and Down. This one is our favorite.
The ThunderCats are about to return in a big way with their new animated series. What better way to commemorate the occasion then by getting this retro Lion-O. For the mere sum of $50, this 20 inch Lion-O comes with 7 points of articulation while having interchangeable glowing eyes and open mouth heads. He is complete with both the long and short version of the Sword of Omens. Yet to finish off this exclusive is an alternate left hand Claw Shield. What are you waiting for? Pre-Order it now (here).
