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.
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.
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?
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.
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!
