The Walking Dead Comic Series 2 on Sale Today Only at Entertainment Earth

I just checked into Entertainment Earth’s “Countdown to Black Friday” in which they offer a deal each day, usually only for that day. Today’s deal is for the Walking Dead Comic Series 2 – you can get individual figures for $9 each or the entire wave for $33.

I can’t believe how disgusting some of these figures are. Removable limbs? Intestines you can wiggle around? Nasty! This deal ends tonight at midnight.

Weekend Toy Run: The Walking Dead TV Series Four and More 20% Off at ToysRUs.com

Toys R Us can make it tough to shop at their online store. A lot of times they’ll show coupons online, but they’re only good in the bricks and mortar stores. This weekend, they’ve kindly made their 20% off sale good online too (with code SAVE20), but it’s only good on full-priced items. Luckily, the Walking Dead TV series 4 from McFarlane just arrived in stock, so it’s full price. At TRU prices, it’s a buck more than you can find it at some other retailers, but with the 20% off you can get each for $12 and change. Best of all, you can combine this with the free shipping for orders over $49.99.

If the Walking Dead isn’t your thing, you could also save on the Batman Classic TV Series action figures from Mattel. With the SAVE20 code, the figures are $15.99, the same price you can get them in other online stores – but TRU still has the Riddler in stock at the normal price, whereas other places like Amazon are sold out and only selling the Riddler through third party sellers for more.

The SAVE20 code expires today. Happy shopping!

SDCC 2013: Diamond Select Toys Marvel Select, Minimates and More

SDCC 2013 - Diamond Select Toys

We’re still working through pics from San Diego Comic-Con. This set is from Sandman’s visit to the Diamond Select Toys booth. They had a lot on display – the usual suspects like Marvel Select and Marvel Minimates were joined by some newcomers. In the “Select” brand it looks like DST will be adding a Sin City Select line as the sequel to the Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller hit comes to fruition. On the Minimates front, it looks like Tomb Raider will be joining the Marvel and Walking Dead lines. And who doesn’t love Femme Fatales?

I’ll have to review my own DST pics – I am surprised not to see Star Trek Select in here. I’m not sure if that’s because they didn’t have any on display or if Sandman hates Star Trek. I think I would recall if they had anything on display past Kirk, Spock, and Picard. [/Ron]

ThreeZero to Make 1/6 Scale Figures from The Walking Dead?

[click for full image]
[click for full image]
Here’s an unofficial announcement (read: rumor) that is starting to make the rounds. The earliest trace I could find of it is from the BBICN boards – a BBICN member posted that ThreeZero has licensed the Walking Dead from AMC and will be producing 1/6 scale figures, and that they will be on display at San Diego Comic-Con.

I have been posting quite a bit about ThreeA Toys since I jumped on the bandwagon a few years back. ThreeZero is the home of the 3A Toys “Hatchery” – they are the production arm, or factory, that makes the toys. ThreeZero is owned and operated by Kim Fung Wong. He’s also Ashley Wood’s partner in 3A.

Still, this news / rumor is a little puzzling to me. After all, zombies are one of 3A’s mainstays. And 3A has been on a licensing tear, adding a diverse line-up in the past couple years. They’ve got 2000 A.D., Marvel, Valve, Metal Gear Solid, and Real Steel. They just closed out pre-orders for the first figures from their Halo 2 and Lost Planet 2 lines. So it seems odd that Walking Dead would fall under ThreeZero instead of ThreeA.

But who knows what twists and turns happen behind the scenes in the licensing game. We’ll talk to 3A at SDCC and see if we can find out more about this.
