LEGO Unites the League with Justice League Sets Due August 1st

LEGO is announcing three new Justice League sets for release on August 1st. You’ll be able to visit Atlantis, build up your armies of Parademons and Atlanteans, and add new Batman vehicles to his already impressive armory.

Aquaman (with a new deco), Batman, Cyborg, Flash, Wonder Woman, Steppenwolf, and Superman are among the mini-figures included in these sets. Wait a minute! Isn’t Superman dead? Dun dun dun!

SDCC 2015: DC Collectibles – Artist Series, Arkham Knight, Icons, and Batman: The Animated Series

SDCC 2015 DC Collectibles Artist Series (1 of 3)

The competition for collectors has ramped back up between DC Collectibles and Mattel. For the past couple of years, one degree of competition had been eased up, with Mattel abandoning 6-inch scale by sunsetting DC Universe Classics. But with Mattel’s move back to 6-inch, more overlap will occur. We’ll keep that in mind as we go through the DC Collectibles offerings from SDCC.

SDCC 2015: Mezco One:12 Collective – Awesome Figures, Could Use Some Focus

SDCC 2015 - Mezco One 12 Collective (1 of 18)

Mezco was actually my first stop during Preview Night (if you don’t count the stop on the way at Mondo, to sneak a quick look at the 1/6 scale Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). I wanted to get there to get my hands on the one of the 150 One:12 Collective Batman / Mutant Leader 2-packs that was on sale for the day. I was lucky and got a set (haven’t had the chance to open it yet), and asked if they had any more figures coming in the line. I was told to look around the corner.

SDCC 2015: Funko Exclusives Reveals Week 3 of 3

SDCC 2015 Funko Exclusives Reveals Week 3 of 3

Here’s the third batch of announcements from Funko’s SDCC exclusives. They span their Dorbz, Hikari, Pop, ReAction, and Vinyl Idolz product lines, and covers their DC, Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, Hanna Barbera, and Ghostbusters licenses… just to name a few!

Funko also announced a signing with Hannibal executive producer Bryan Fuller:

We are thrilled to announce our Bryan Fuller Pop! figure! The man behind Hannibal bears an eerie resemblance to Hannibal Lector!

This Pop! comes in a run of 144 pieces and will be available during his signing at the Funko booth on Friday, July 10th at 2 p.m.! The line for our Bryan Fuller signing will not begin to form before 1 p.m. and we will only sell Bryan Fuller Pop!s during the signing. We will not sell other Funko items during that time!

While we were expecting just three batches of announcements, maybe Funko will have a final one before the show. Stay tuned!

SDCC 2015 Funko Exclusives Reveals Week 1 of 3

I never realized just how many exclusives Funko produces each year for San Diego Comic-Con. They’re revealing them in batches, and we’ve collected the first week’s announcements here. They span their Dorbz, Hikari, Pop, ReAction, and Vinyl Idolz product lines, and covers their DC, Marvel, Disney, Hanna Barbera, Ghostbusters, Breaking Bad, and Dragonball Z licenses… just to name a few!

Unlike previous years, Funko is not offering the option to pre-order.

We should have two more updates with more Funko exclusives before the big show.
