TWO new figures of E.T. have now arrived and are ready to head home with you. The dragged-up Dress-Up E.T. is joined by the more traditional Galactic Friend E.T. and available individually or as a set of two . The figures are about 7 inches tall, which comes as a bit of a surprise since he’s almost certainly smaller than most characters we usually see at a 6-inch scale. What we think it means, though, is that it’ll just be easier to see the awesome levels of detail NECA has put on these figures.
Based on the look he sported in THE AVENGERS, a new THOR figure is being released by Sideshow. As usual, the detail is incredible, the accessories are perfect and the figure as a whole is an amazing addition to any fan’s collection. You can pre-order now and he’ll will ship out in January 2013. Check this guy out:

In or near San Jose? Head on down to the BIG WOW COMIC FEST this weekend!
It’s a relatively young Con, but one that boasts some pretty amazing talent from the world of comics. You’ll be able to meet the likes of Adam Hughes, Jim Lee, Steve Niles, Frank Cho, Juanjo Guarnido, Tim Sale, Travis Charest, Dean Yeagle and many, many, many more. It all goes down on May 19th and 20th at the San Jose Convention Centre. Be there!
When the Con’s over, stay tuned to this blog for a full report and plenty of pics!
If you haven’t already picked up the awesome Arkham City HARLEY QUINN figure, grab it now.
Because just when you thought the Arkham City DLCs were slowing down, they announced HARLEY QUINN’S REVENGE and now, at last, there’s a gameplay trailer. It’s mostly fighting, of course, with Robin finally getting a chance to shine in the city itself. Can’t say we’re thrilled that “Payback’s a bitch” as the tagline, but from the guys who brought you a version of Catwoman whose lines are mostly purrs and whose behind is her most celebrated asset, we’re not terribly surprised. Hopefully the gameplay will be awesome enough to keep us playing! Take a look:
You know that feeling when you see a new action figure, toy or statue and you realise, almost resignedly, that you are going to have to own it? Well, here’s an example of one item that’s given me that really specific feeling:
This Heroes of the DC Universe bust is an awesome tribute to the Dark Knight. Standing about 6 inches tall and packaged in a sweet window box (for you mini-condition collectors), it’s a great addition to your display shelf. Grab it now!
Christopher Nolan’s Batman film series is planning to go out in style.
In honor of “The Dark Knight Rises’” impending release, two of the most iconic vehicles from Batman’s arsenal — the Tumbler and Bat-Pod — are going to be toured around the country for fans’ viewing pleasure. The tour kicks off on May 12 in Arkansas and wraps up in Los Angeles on July 7, just in time to (hopefully) head down to San Diego for Comic-Con.
The official website for the cross-country jaunt is http://www.tumblertour.com, but fans can get updates and locations for the trip from Facebook and Twitter. The tour dates and locations are tentative for now, so if you’re interested in attending it’s worth checking out those outlets closer to when the vehicles are supposed to be near you.
The current schedule shows the tour stopping in 19 states as well as Washington D.C. and Canada. The website for the tour promises that more stops are to be added, so hopefully they’ll add more locations in the New England and Pacific Northwest.

If you’re a proud geek, then your mom might be, too! So if you’re planning on celebrating this Sunday’s Mother’s Day with a return trip to see the Avengers, then maybe you can top it off with one of these awesome Supermom action figures.
Supermom is about 6 inches tall and comes in three varieties: African-American, Asian and Caucasian. Each one includes all the accessories you need to make her work life as hectic as her home life (which, let’s face is, is even more work). It’s a great way to say thank you to a Mom who has gone above and beyond.
Where can you find an Aztec Warrior, a Bagpiper, a Bride, a guy in a Bunny Suit, a Daredevil, an Evil Knight, a Computer Programmer, a Hippie, the King of the Ocean, a Jungle Boy, a Swimming Champ, a Galaxy Patrolman, a Rocker Girl, a Tennis Ace, a Viking Woman and a little girl visiting Grandma?
Right here, in the latest series of LEGO Minifigures!
These guys are now available for pre-order, shipping out in May. You can get them individually, as a complete set or sealed in a complete box if you’re a mystery fan.
