DesignerCon 2013 Weekend Alert

DCon-2013 FULLERDESIGNS-DCON_original FULLERDESIGNSv1_original

DesignerCon is being held this weekend in Pasadena, CA, at the Pasadena Convention Center. DCon is an annual art and design convention that is basically a mash up of collectible toys and designer apparel, along with with urban, underground and pop art… including skate decks, original art and custom toys.

Example of cool collectible?

Fuller Designs – see his Spider-Man Minicel, Mysterio Minicel, and Ghost Rider Minicel – each OOAK and available for $125. That said, you might have wished to get Fuller Designs’ OTHER collectible – his Trick R Treat villains – Joker, Red Skull, Dr Doom and Loki. These were super cool bad guys hand-made resin pieces, using Fuller Designs’ own Lil’ Jammie design, hand-painted with acrylic and airbrush paints, and came with their own little pumpkin full of goodies… I said “came” cuz they’re all SOLD OUT, but are really worth a look.

DC Collectibles Batman: Arkham Origins Figures Hitting Soon

It’s pretty cool that within a couple of weeks of the Batman: Arkham Origins video game release that the first wave of DC Collectibles figures are hitting. The DCC section of  the DC Entertainment site has the ship date as 11/6 if you pre-order from them. They’re listed individually for $24.99 each.

If you want to save a couple bucks, Entertainment Earth has the Batman: Arkham Origins figures for $22.99. So does BBTS.

Ready for a Long Halloween? Sideshow Collectibles 1/6 Scale Batman Available to Pre-Order

100090-batman-006

Sideshow Collectibles has just put up the classic comic book version Batman that they teased when they announced the 1/6 scale  comic book Catwoman last month. So far I’ve managed to resist her and the really awesome looking 1/6 scale Joker, but as more of these comic book figures get revealed my resolve weakens. Bats comes with long-eared and short-eared heads, interchangeable expressions, and a bunch of hands and weapons. The Sideshow exclusive version of Batman, for the same $199.99 price, also comes with a battle-damaged head.

And there’s also a tease of an upcoming figure in Sideshow’s pics – you may see a streak of a red cape in one of the shots. Guess it’s a good thing that Bats also comes with a Kryptonite ring. Could Superman be announced as early as next month?

Weekend Toy Run: Mattel Batman Classic TV Series Catwoman and Friends

Holy heartbreak, Miss Kitka! She’s purrrrrrfect!

If you were waiting for the Batman Classic TV Series Catwoman to be in stock before placing an order, now’s the time. The Julie Newmar Catwoman has arrived, and she’s selling fast – just a handful of her in stock at Amazon, for the normal $15.99 price. Amazon also has most of the others in stock for regular price. It’s only the Riddler who’s available at aftermarket prices from third party sellers.

Weekend Toy Run: Free LEGO Superheroes at Toys R Us (In Stores Only) 10/19

ToysRUs LEGO Superheroes Bricktober 10-19 Promo

So I may not be buying a Legendary Scale Doctor Doom from Sideshow, but a LEGO Doctor Doom minifigure might fit in the budget. This Saturday in Toys R Us stores would make sense. From Noon to 2PM on 10/19 (that’s tomorrow), Toys R Us is holding a special in-store promotion – build a LEGO Joker mini-mech-bot and take it home for free. And there’s more – if you buy over $20 worth of qualifying LEGO Batman, you can get Robin and his Redbird cycle, also for free. Same goes with $20 or more of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes – you get a free Iron Man.

As you can imagine, supplies will be limited, so get there early and build away! Happy shopping!
