SDCC 2015 (and WebSwipe): DC Collectibles Announces Two Exclusives –

BlueLine Edition Batman and Krypto Plush will be available at SDCC

DC Collectibles SDCC 2015 exclusives - Jim Lee Blue Line Batman and Krypto Plush

DC Collectibles announced two exclusives for San Diego Comic-Con via USA Today. For action figure fans, Jim Lee debuted a “BlueLine Edition” Batman, which he designed with a unique pencil deco. There will be two versions of the figure. The standard version ($40) will come with a Jim Lee Batman print on blueline paper. The limited version will be a run of 150 pieces and will feature a signed unique sketch from Lee. There’ll be fifty each of Batman, Harley Quinn, and the Joker – those will run you $300 each at the show and will likely go Bat-sh*t crazy in the after-market.

The second exclusive is a much more budget-friendly plush Krypto, for $9.99. Krypto is part of the 6-inch DC Super Pets plush line, which also includes Dex-Starr, Hoppy, and Streaky. I’m disappointed there’s no Ace the Bat-Hound yet.

It’s No Laughing Matter – Win the Arkham Asylum Joker from Sideshow

The Clown Prince of Crime kicks off a new Premium Format Figure line from Sideshow Collectibles

Sideshow Collectibles Arkham Asylum Joker Premium Format Figure Giveaway

If you’re a fan of the Batman: Arkham Asylum series of video games, Sideshow is holding a giveaway you’d be crazy to pass up. They are launching a new line of Premium Format Figures for the game, and the Joker is the first of them to be revealed. Standing at over 2 feet tall, his appearance is styled after the designs of the game – before he self-medicated with the Titan drug, of course.

It looks like Batman will be the next figure in the line, and if it’s a hit, then I hope we’ll see Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. And I think it’d be overkill to see Premium Format Figures of Bane, Killer Croc, and a Titan Joker – they’d be ginormous!

You can enter the Arkham Asylum Joker giveaway at Sideshow – it will be $449.99 when it goes up for pre-order tomorrow. If you’ve got the toy budget for it, I’d suggest getting in on it early – the Sideshow exclusive version will also have a swappable laughing portrait (shown above). Good luck!

Make Your Perfect Getaway with the Hot Toys Joker Giveaway

Sideshow Collectibles Joker Bank Robber v2 Giveaway

Sideshow Collectibles is hosting a particularly tempting giveaway for the Hot Toys “Bank Robber” Joker from opening sequence of The Dark Knight. This is Hot Toys’ second iteration of this version of the Heath Ledger Joker – it features improved paint apps on the Joker head sculpt, a new alternate head featuring the clown mask, and better fitting clothes, among other improvements. It was a “Toy Fair” exclusive last year, meaning it was available at various conventions internationally and exclusively through Sideshow here in the States.

Of course, if you don’t want to enter the giveaway, which ends this Sunday, March 22, you can always just buy the Joker (Bank Robber Version 2.0) Sixth Scale Figure directly from Sideshow, and introduce a little anarchy…

More Batman: The Animated Series, Arrow, and the Flash in DC Collectibles Solicits for October 2015

DC Collectibles October 2015 Solicits - Batman the Animated Series, Arrow, and The Flash

DC Collectibles’ solicits for October include figures that we saw during Toy Fair, from Batman: the Animated Series, Arrow, and The Flash.

In addition to a wave of figures for B:TAS that includes Bane and Nightwing, the line will also get its first vehicle – an in scale Batmobile (two feet long!) with working hatch, room for two 6-inch figures, and LED lights. At $99.95, it’s about double what Mattel charged for it’s 6-inch scaled Batmobile for the 1966 series – but less than half the $215 that Mattycollector wanted for the Ghostbusters Ecto-1.

So, who’s going to buy the B:TAS Batmobile (check out our video fly-by of the vehicle)? I’m on the fence.
