Two Deals at including Buy 1 Get 1 Free

There aren’t a heck of a lot of items available for the BOGO offer, but these might be of interest.

MOTU Classics Tri-Klops and More On Sale August 17

Two updates from Mattel – first, they’ve posted a reminder for me to remind you that the Masters of the Universe Classics Tri-Klops is on sale on at Noon EST.  I’m looking forward to seeing if he can dethrone Man-At-Arms as the baddest badass on my MOTU shelf.

Tri-Klops may be the big item for me, but there’s a whole mess of stuff going up tomorrow, so be ready for some red screens of death.

Big sale on Monday! MOTUC Tri-Klops, Infinite Heroes Crisis 4 pack, JLU Shazam pack, plus a few retail Batman Brave and the Bold and Dark Knight items! Check out at 12 noon eastern Aug 17th!

I’m not exactly sure which Brave and the Bold and Dark Knight products are going up tomorrow, but posted pics of all that’s currently up there.  Matty will also have a 1:24 die cast Lightning McQueen, so it could get a little crazy, with both action figure and Hot Wheels collectors converging on the site.

Mattel also posted a round-up of sorts of the latest Ask Matty sessions (AFP’s latest Ask Matty Round-Up was posted yesterday).  They touch on a lot of sore spots, for example, $20 Dark Knight Movie Masters, bonus figures not in Club Eternia, and Gleek.  Not sure if the explanations will soothe the folks who are raging over them, but at least Mattel understands that some people are upset.  And a new hurt for folks on the east coast – Mattel won’t be at New York Comic-Con next year.  That’s not surprising, since it’s in October, during the prime selling season for big box retailers.

Buy One, Get Two Free Dark Knight Figures at Toys R Us

Toys R Us is having a Buy One, Get Two Free sale on action figures from The Dark Knight. The sale is good through August 1.

You might have different luck in the store, but the way it’s coded on is that only the 5-inch movie line figures are eligible.  However, the ad text claims that the sale is good on “ALL Dark Knight 6-inch figures.”  Regardless, it’s a good opportunity to pick up some toys for your kids, your nephews and nieces, or the kid in you!

Hot Toys Deluxe Joker Details Revealed

Earlier news reports that Hot Toys would be releasing two new Jokers from The Dark Knight were only partially correct.  Hot Toys has indeed introduced a new deluxe format Joker, but it will feature interchangeable parts that allow you to display the Joker in either his Gotham City Police uniform or in an improved costume featuring his bomb-laden overcoat.

In addition, the figure will feature a new system for poseable eyes.  I’ve not collected figures in this format before, but this may be the first!

The debut of MMSDX series is THE JOKER from the Dark Knight movie:

  • Hot Toys True Type figure with over 35 points of articulation
  • Stands approximately 12 inches / 31 cm tall
  • Dressed in Gotham City police suit, hat, Gotham City cop badge and shoes, the characters wears for assassination scene in the movie.
  • Weapons-M1 Garand Rifle
  • Additional costume: Improved & movie-accurate Joker costume of an overcoat, sport coat, vest, shirt, tie, pants, belt, socks and shoes, with grenades rig and suspenders
  • Weapons and accessories: Five pieces of grenades, knife, pistol and Joker cards
  • Seven Interchangeable posing hands
  • An interchangeable and new make-up Joker head featured with Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS) and colored Translucent Iris.
  • Deluxe figure stand with LED lights
