DC Collectibles Arkham Knight in Stock at Gamestop including Red Hood Exclusive

DC Collectibles Arkham Knight with Gamestop exclusive Red Hood

Batman: Arkham Knight is out today, and by most accounts is amazing on the Xbox One and Playstation 4 and horribly crippled by a subpar port on the PC. But that doesn’t matter to us, right? We want the action figures for the latest (and perhaps last) Arkham game from Rocksteady.

Well, we’re in luck. The Batman: Arkham Knight figures by DC Collectibles are available now, including the exclusive Red Hood figure, at Gamestop. The figures are:

Weekend Toy Run: Pre-Order the Marvel Legends Rhino Wave at Entertainment Earth

Marvel Legends Rhino wave

Generally, I prefer having the option to order Marvel Legends figures individually, so I’ve been waiting for the Rhino wave to show up on Amazon, like the Marvel Legends Ant-Man / Ultron wave did a couple weeks ago – but inexplicably it hasn’t yet. So I am doing the next best thing – I’m pre-ordering a case of the Marvel Legends Rhino wave at Entertainment Earth for $159.99 with free shipping. That will leave me with a duplicate Scarlet Spider to give away.

There are other options: you could pre-order the Rhino case or a seven figure set (no dupes) from BigBadToyStore. The case costs the same as EE, but shipping is extra. And the seven figure set only saves you $5 at $154.99 – and again you pay shipping. The math there doesn’t make sense to me.

Toys R Us also has the Rhino wave up for pre-order – they currently show up first when you search for Marvel Legends on the TRU site. While you can pre-order the figures individually, they’re $21.99 each – for all seven you’d be at $153.93 (with free shipping, though) so to me it really only makes sense if you’re going to cherry-pick the wave.

Off Topic: Carry Your Action Figures and More in Style in these Kickstarter Bags

Get both form and function with the Mochibags Drawstring Backpack and the Kendal & Hyde Classic Leather Satchel

Kickstarter Mochibags and Kendal and Hyde Satchel

I am on the go a lot these days – almost as much as during my earlier days as a salesman and then as a consultant. Sure, instead of customer calls or client meetings, now I’m going to SDCC, Toy Fair, or other conventions, making the occasional real-world toy runs, and visiting family and friends all over the place. But whether it’s a day trip or much longer, what hasn’t changed is the need to take stuff with me – computer and camera gear, clothes, and the occasional action figure.

Because of all this, what I use to carry my stuff is nearly as important as the stuff itself. I want it to be easy to use and to protect the stuff inside. And, it doesn’t hurt if it looks good in the process.

It just so happens that the Drawstring Backpack by Mochibags and the Classic Leather Satchel by Kendal & Hyde fit the bill in those regards. I’ve backed both projects on Kickstarter. They’ve both exceeded their funding objectives. And coincidentally, both projects funding periods end this Friday evening – so you have to act fast if you want to back them.

Weekend Toy Run: The AFP “Two/Bad” Movie Poster T-Shirt and More – Save 15%

Two-Bad parody movie poster t-shirt

Did you know that June 21st will be the 8th International T-Shirt Day? I’m pretty sure that it was invented by our t-shirt partner, but made-up commemorative day irregardless, they’re giving us a 15% discount starting today and running through T-Shirt Day (the 21st again). And just for that, we’ve made a special t-shirt for the occasion, featuring one of our favorite Masters of the Universe Classics figures – Two-Bad. The Two/Bad movie poster t-shirt is a riff on one of our favorite terrible yet awesome movies from the 90s. Can you name that movie?

The Two/Bad Movie Poster t-shirt is available on the rarely publicized Fan Tribute T-shirts page on AFP. While you’re there, check out our Avengers: Age of Ultron “Obey” t-shirt (and more!) and use “TSHIRT2015” code to get your 15% off. That code also works on the regular Spreadshirt site.

Pre-Order the Marvel Legends Ultron / Ant-Man Wave at Amazon

Build Ultron Prime, get Ant-Man, and complete the Wrecking Crew!

Marvel Legends Ultron (Ant-Man) wave

For a single wave of Marvel Legends, it sure has a lot going on. Known officially as the Ultron wave, it’s tied into the blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron movie with Ultron Prime as the Build-a-Figure. Unofficially, it’s also being called the Ant-Man wave – it’s got Scott Lang in the movie Ant-Man costume and Janet Van Dyne and Hank Pym in their comic-based Wasp and Giant Man costumes respectively. And last but not least, it includes two of the figures that were “lost” when Hasbro revamped the distribution model and shelved the running change variants – one of those is Bulldozer, who finally completes the Wrecking Crew.

You can pre-order all six of the Marvel Legends Ultron / Ant-Man figures at Amazon. If you want to cherry-pick:

Happy shopping!
