Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have put together an awesome prize package for Superman’s 75th anniversary. It includes items from DC Collectibles, Funko, Mattel, Mezco, NECA, and a whole mess more. They’ve even got some of the exclusives from this year’s San Diego Comic-Con in there.
Dr. Strange has had pretty good action figures in both Marvel Legends and Marvel Universe, but haven’t really had any of his signature villains available to battle. And while this San Diego exclusive HeroClix Shuma Gorath may work for MU and might be a bit of a stretch for ML, I’m still pretty psyched to see it from WizKids – it’s about time! One of the coolest features is his articulated eye, which is movable via an eye knob at the back of his head(?)
After posting the Sideshow contest I started clicking around for more Pacific Rim info – somehow I missed the announcement last week for NECA’s giveaway. They’re now in week two of giveaways for four NECA Pacific Rim prize packs. The action figures look great, but I’m most thrilled about the HeroClix. I like the idea of scale reversal – to the Heroclix kaiju I’m monster-sized!
Four Weeks of Pacific Rim Contests Start Today!
Only a few more weeks until until Guillermo del Toro’s sci-fi action-adventure “Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim” hits theaters, and the anticipation is killing us. To celebrate the upcoming film (and distract ourselves from the unbearable wait), we’re kicking off an unprecedented series of contests — starting today!
For the next month, we’ll be holding weekly drawings to give away fantastic prizes from Pacific Rim. That means you’ve got FOUR chances to win Pacific Rim 7″ Action Figures, HeroClix Pacific Rim Mini-Games, and HeroClix Pacific Rim Gravity Feeds!
It was a slow day for AFP yesterday, as I was on the road taking my wife and her mom to Las Vegas as a little Mother’s Day celebration. As we were sitting at the gate waiting to board the plane, I thought about action figures of mothers. And came up with one. Pamela Voorhees, from Friday the 13th, was the only one I could recall. And actually, there were at least two made of her. In 2005, NECA came out with deluxe set for the movie’s 25th anniversary, with Jason and his dear old mom (pictured above, courtesy of BigBadToyStore). Sideshow made a 1/6 scale version – see Michael Crawford’s review of Pamela Voorhees.
So, what other mothers deserve action figures? Before getting called to board the plane, I came up with three.
