SDCC 2013: Hot Toys at the Sideshow Collectibles Booth

Hot Toys (24 of 60)

I had been wanting to get to the Sideshow booth to check out the Hot Toys displays – it’s always one of the highlights of SDCC for me. I got my chance yesterday afternoon – and would have had an Instapics post up sooner, if it wasn’t for the massive congestion in the cellular network. All afternoon, a lot of folks in the San Diego Convention Center were having trouble making calls and sending texts, not to mention uploading pictures to the AFPRon Instagram account. 😀

Despite frustrations trying to keep connected, the Hot Toys showing did not disappoint. As you might expect, there was a ton of Avengers and Iron Man figures on display, but when you add in Robocop, G.I. JOE, Lone Ranger, and the growing DC licenses, there was something good for everybody.

Hot Toys Has Four More Reasons to Visit Sideshow at SDCC

I already love spending time at the Sideshow Collectibles booth at San Diego Comic-Con – it’s massive and chock full of 1/6 scale goodness. And even though it’s just a couple days away, Hot Toys is still driving up the pre-show hype with previews of some figures that will debut at the big show at Sideshow. We saw the Hot Toys Batman Classic TV Series Batmobile last year, and finally we’ll have an Adam West Batman and Burt Ward Robin to go with it.

Hot Toys teased the Iron Man Heartbreaker armor previously, but it’ll be nice to see it (and a ton of other Iron Men, I am sure) up close. And I had no idea they were doing Lone Ranger figure(s) – Johnny Depp’s Tonto is up first, and I can’t imagine that Armie Hammer’s Lone Ranger will follow soon.

Lone Ranger, Pacific Rim, Aliens, and Predators in NECA’s eBay Store

7-inch The Lone Ranger & Tonto Action Figures - Complete Series 1 Set Pacific Rim - 7-inch Scale Jaeger Crimson Typhoon Action Figure - NECA Series 1 Aliens - 7-inch Scale Corporal Dwayne Hicks Action Figure - Series 1 Predators Series 9 - 7-inch Jungle Encounter Dutch Schaefer Action Figure

If you are willing to pay just a little more for the convenience of avoiding the hunt, then NECA’s eBay store is a great place to pick up hard to find items. Toys R Us had been fairly reliable with their aisle for collectors, but the ones in my area have squeezed out a lot of the shelf space that had been allocated for it.

Can’t Wait for the Lone Ranger and Tonto? Available Now on NECA’s eBay Store

The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, opens July 3 in the US, but the 7-inch action figures from NECA are available now. NECA has singles of the Lone Ranger and Tonto on their eBay store. Anyone heard anything about a 3.75-inch line?

There’s a lot more action figures available on the NECA eBay store.

Free LEGO Iron Man vs Fighting Drone Set with $50 Purchase

Free LEGO Iron Man vs Fighting Drone

Iron Man is still going strong in theaters, though I expect Star Trek will take over the top spot this weekend. LEGO has the Marvel (and DC) license, but Star Trek is with Hasbro in the KRE-O building set brand – so LEGO is riding shotgun with this Iron Man promotion for a free set. The LEGO Iron Man vs. Fighting Drone is a $4.99 set, and you don’t necessarily have to buy Marvel LEGOs to get it.

For example, you might go nuts over these Lone Ranger LEGO setscowboys, Indians, and trains? That’s LEGO heaven, Kemosabe.
