I started my binge-watching of Breaking Bad shortly before New York Comic Con started, so I was looking forward to picking up a Walter White exclusive. And I was as disappointed as Walt Jr. to find his dad had sold out. I returned on Sunday and decided to pick up a Heisenberg figure. This time, I was in luck – Mezco had saved one, not for me, but because the bubble had ripped off and they weren’t sure anyone would want it. But Walt had his sunglasses, hat, ziploc full of blue meth, and his duffel bag of cash. I won.
The NYCC exclusives from the Four Horsemen go on sale at StoreHorsemen in a couple of hours this afternoon, starting with the Outer Space Men at 3PM EST. This will be followed by a Fan Club-only 48-hour window for the Power Lords at 3PM EST tomorrow. And if there’s any remaining in stock, the Power Lords sale opens up to everyone at 3PM EST on Saturday.
They’ve made it clear that this time there’ll be no additional inventory made. So when these sell out, they’re gone, and any sales accidentally made over the allotted inventory will be canceled. So bear with the store potentially crapping out on you and get that sale done. And if you’re not a member of the Power Lords Fan Club, maybe now is the time to get signed up. Good luck and happy shopping!
The show’s over, but I’ll have more NYCC galleries over the next couple days.
Kotobukiya is not my typical fare – no budget or space for them – but they produce some of the most beautiful statues from across pop culture domains. They’ve got licenses for movies, video games, comics, and more.
If I had a million dollars, I’d probably buy everything that was in the Bluefin booth showcasing Bandai’s action figure offerings. They produce such awesome toys, in particular with the S.H. FiguArts and MonsterArts lines – Godzilla, DragonBall Z, Power Rangers, Sailor Moon… and now Aliens vs. Predator, and even Batman?!
For the first time in recent memory since Art Asylum produced Minimates for Marvel and DC, Play Imaginative holds licenses for both of the major comic book companies. On the DC front, they are producing Super Alloy diecast figures in 1/6 for the New 52 Justice League. In San Diego, we saw everything up through the new Green Lantern. Here in NY, Yes Anime (Play Imaginative’s US distributor) also brought along Cyborg and Flash.
Folks who pre-ordered Superman around SDCC – Yes Anime reports that after a delay in Singapore, Play Imaginative will be delivering in the next couple of weeks. For NYCC, they had air-shipped about 10 of the Supes for sale at the show. The rest are coming by sea. They were a bit vague on the reasons behind the delay (Superman was expected to ship in the August time frame), suggesting that it was perhaps to put a more powerful fan in the Fortress base and for some resculpting of the Superman heads.
