Want a Club Eternia subscription or 2014? How about for free? Sure you do. And all you have to do is submit a picture of you “Grayskulling.” What’s that, you ask? It’s MattyCollector’s term for pulling a He-Man pose.
With the MattyCollector “Grayskulling” contest, they’ll pick one winner, from those of you with little enough shame that you’ll send in a picture of yourself in the iconic “I have the Power!” pose. Don’t have a Power Sword? They’ll take alternates – humor and creativity count!
Frankly, I think it’s a little behind the times to think only of He-Man. She-Ra poses ought to count too, don’t you think? In fact, I think Kylie Minogue has already won this contest. But you guys and gals out there ought to send in your Grayskulling pics anyways. Good luck! » There’s more… click to continue reading You Have the Power! … to Win Club Eternia for 2014
Masters of the Universe Classics Thundarr the Barbarian by Joe Amato – even though Thundarr isn’t a Filmation property, he and He-Man go together like peanut butter and jelly – so it’s no wonder that a Thundarr custom from a He-Man body would look so good – now we just need a Princess Ariel and Ookla, Joe! – ends Jun 23, 2013 14:45:22 PDT

Entertainment Earth and Hasbro have revealed the first figure from Star Wars Black Series wave 2, and it’s none other than Greedo, Han Solo’s unwitting victim in the Mos Eisley Cantina on Tatooine. They’re planning four successive reveals each week that highlight the design and development of the Greedo figure. This first week gives us a glimpse at the figure’s blaster, holster, and hands – which I’m guessing have bendy fingers. While you’re there, you can pre-order Star Wars Black Series wave one.
But you’re not thinking about that, are you? You’ve got the Cantina Band music playing in your head now and you can’t get it out. Instead, try this – start humming the William Tell Overture (that’s the Lone Ranger theme song) and tell me it doesn’t morph into the Cantina Band song. Crazy, huh? Not as crazy if wave 2 doesn’t also include Han Solo.
In collaboration with Hasbro, Entertainment Earth is proud to introduce a never-before-seen figure in the second wave of the BLACK SERIES 6-inch scale action figure line! During the next few weeks, we will release images that give fans an inside look at the development of this great new character — concept to final product. Visit EntertainmentEarth.com weekly to see what we reveal in this exciting line that features incredible accuracy and articulation.

I love the SH Figuarts DragonBall Z line from Bandai, but my wallet is glad they don’t release figures more often. I’m going to have to pick up the latest figure they’ve announced – Kuririn aka Krillin. He comes with 3 different facial expressions, 6 sets of hands, and his Destructo Disc.
You can pre-order the SH Figuarts Krillin from Amazon and BigBadToyStore. He’s listed for $39.99 at both and is due in November.

Sometimes I wish that Minimates didn’t exist – because with independent comics they present a much lower risk option. And for a comic like Invincible, I would love a Marvel Legends-scaled and articulated action figure line. But the days of Legendary Comic Book Heroes from Toy Biz are long gone, so I suppose Invincible Minimates are much better than nothing at all. Click through to Comic Book Resources – they have all the Invincible Minimates design sheets, and an Atom Eve statue too.
EXCLUSIVE: DST Gets “Invincible” With New Minimates, Statue – Comic Book Resources
The pages of Robert Kirkman and company’s Image Comics/Skybound series “Invincible” may itself be in a constant state of expansion (and bloodshed!) as the writer reveals new heroes and villains in almost every monthly issue. But soon, the Invincible Universe will be expanding into our world.
This fall, Diamond Select Toys will debut a number of products inspired by the “Invincible” comic starting with a four-pack of Minimates based on series lead Mark Grayson, Omni-Man, Atom Eve and Allen the Alien. CBR News got an exclusive first look at the designs for the figures as well as the picture of their final form.

With the June MattyCollector sale, it’s the calm before the San Diego Comic-Con storm. Octavia is a Horde member from She-Ra Princess of Power, so even though I like how the figure turned out, I suspect she’ll have a smaller following. And judging from many of the comments I’ve seen, this version of Red Hood is not a highly sought after one. It’s Jason Todd from the second arc in Morrison’s Batman and Robin, and he changed costumes right after that. A lot of people clamored for a jacketed version, and others would have preferred a more classic Joker Red Hood. From the rehashes, only Man-At-Arms remains from Early Access; Spikor sold out.
Today marks the official opening of the subscriptions for 2013 for Club Eternia and Club Infinite Earths. The new flight stands are up for sale today too – they are two to a pack. For your convenience, here’s the link to the bundle page for the June MattyCollector sale. The sale opens up at 9AM PST this morning.
6/17 Sale Reminder: Octavia™, Red Hood and New Flying Stands That Extend/Articulate!

Entertainment Earth and BigBadToyStore have put up pre-orders for cases of the Marvel Legends series for Wolverine, but there’s still a fair amount of ambiguity. While the cases are said to have Wolverine, Cyclops, Emma Frost and Sabretooth, there are no case pack-outs yet, and no mention of the variants: Wolverine in his X-Force costume, Cyclops in his Phoenix Force costume, and Rogue in place of Emma. We saw the Wolverine Legends variants at Toy Fair.
BBTS has Wolverine Legends cases listed at $159.99, and Entertainment Earth has them at $179.99 – but that includes free shipping. They are listed as arriving in October.

Speaking of Sideshow, I thought that their Superman: Man of Steel Premium Format Figure wouldn’t be available to pre-order until the end of the month, when their giveaway for Supes ends. But there’s not denying the mojo from Man of Steel opening in theaters today.
The Sideshow Superman is in 1/4 scale, so better make space for this massive figure. The Superman Premium Format Figure is available to pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles, and it’s already pre-sold out at BigBadToyStore.

Hot Toys teased their Superman: Man of Steel figure a few weeks ago, and I guess with the movie opening today they couldn’t wait any longer to reveal the figure. Some people have said that the figure is a bit too bulked up compared to Henry Cavill – and while I agree, I think it’s the right thing for a super-heroic figure.
While I haven’t seen the Hot Toys version listed yet, check out Sideshow Collectibles and BigBadToyStore.
