Fans of Transformers Prime can snag this great 6-inch figure based on the show and featured as one of San Diego Comic Con 2011’s signature EXCLUSIVE items. It’s a 6-inch tall rendering of Optimus Prime, featuring an amazing premium deco that’s unique to the figure and gives a great dramatic flair, sleek and metallic. Beyond the awesome transforming figure, though, this is one collectible where the package might actually be just as awesome. Called “The Matrix of Leadership”, the box converts into a wearable piece!
The largest item Mattel has ever made for their awesome exclusive line, the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man is one figure Ghostbusters fans can’t afford to miss!
Stay Puft is the largest item ever made by Mattel and sold at SDCC, standing at over 20″ tall! Our favorite squishy villain is made from soft foam and features articulation at the arms, head and legs. A huge city diorama is included in the packaging – perfect for displaying your entire Ghostbusters collection!
Couldn’t make it to this year’s San Diego Comic Con but still want to snag one of the very cool exclusives? Well, if you’re a big fan of YOUNG JUSTICEN, then look no further! We’ve got an awesome figure of SUPERBOY in a cloning chamber. It’s 6 inches tall and it’s absolutely rad. Snag it now!
This show-accurate figure recreates the scene from the pilot episode when Robin, Aqualad, and Kid Flash discover the mysterious Project Kr, where the Light has commissioned “The Weapon.” Using Superman’s DNA – without his knowledge or consent – Cadmus has force-grown the Superboy, using telepathic Genomorph-Gnomes to make a virtual slave of Superman’s son. The cloning tank includes Superboy plus 3 telepathic Genomorph-Gnomes, and with the press of a button, the inside of the cloning tank lights up a glowing blue.
At this year’s Comic Con, Sideshow had a ton of great offerings and here’s one of the exclusives they had on display!
Crafted in 1:3, these Iron Man helmets are based on the films designs for Mark V, Mark VI and sidekick (partner?) War Machine. Each one is individually painted and finished, but most impressively, each one also features LEDs in the mask that create a glowing effect from the eyes. If you have a Marvel display or you’re just bummed out about missing this stuff at SDCC, your prayers have been answered!
SWAMP THING has come from the 2011 San Diego Comic Con and is ready to lumber into a place on your DC display shelf!
Perhaps best rendered by Alan Moore’s masterful writing, Swamp Thing is an iconic member of the DC Universe and it’s no surprise that DC Direct went with an exclusive for this year’s big bash. Not to mention the fact that the fans have been demanding a toy to do the green guy justice.
The toy itself is packages in a shipper box and comes in a paper pulp mold of Swamp Thing himself. He’s about 6 inches tall, comes with a base and features endoskeletal articulation so you don’t see a single joint, just sheer action figure perfection!
Well, if you’re a geek, you’ve probably already seen the sheer awesomeness that was the Dark Knight Rises poster! But if you missed it, our Sunday geek-out feature will give you your first look. And if you already enjoyed it, well, you’ll probably want to see this thing again!
We’ve now gotten two brand new sets of Marvel Universe 3.75 figures in-stock and ready to ship out! Here’s a look at both:
Marvel Universe 2010 Wave 6 is the final group of figures from the last year, capping off the 2010 collection with five of Marvel’s finest.
Dark Avengers’ Hawkeye, Constrictor, Yellow Jacket (with mini Antman), Iron Man 2020 and the monstrous Thanos make up the sixth wave and you can grab them as individual figures or a complete set of five (the set boasts a savings of $21.80!).
And as we step into the new year, we can also welcome the first wave of 2011, featuring six figures:
World War Hulk, Spider-Woman, Spider-Man 2099, Captain Marvel, Doc Samson and Modular Armor Iron Man arrive, again available individually if you’ve got a few faves among them or as a set (for a savings of $10.95). They’re a great way to ring in the new year!
The new 17-inch WOLVERINE statue from Sideshow Collectibles is a stunning example of the kind of work the Sideshow folks are capable of. Not only does this thing stand tall, but Logan is clad in a real fabric costume that gives a brilliant sense of realism on top of such a dynamic pose. The nod to his Canadian heritage in the form of a red maple leaf? That just makes it even better. Check it out in our Marvel Sideshow section!
And for Wolverine fans, there’s some more good news. Which, unfortunately, becomes kind of bittersweet news if you’re a Hugh Jackman fan in general. Here’s the info from MovieWeb:
Hugh Jackman has reportedly turned down an offer to host the 83rd annual Academy Awards due to his prior commitments filming the upcoming sequel X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2.
The Academy Awards will be held on February 27th next year. Jackman and director Darren Aronofsky will be gearing up to leave for location shoots in New York and Japan at that time, with X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2 beginning its principle photography at the beginning of March.
Jackman, who hosted the 81st Academy Awards in 2009, proved to be quite popular, and was expected back for 2011’s ceremony, as he told producers that he wanted to skip a year before returning. Now it seems we’ll have to wait another year before seeing Hugh take the stage at the famed Kodak Theater in Hollywood.
Oscar hosts are normally announced by November 3rd. Deadline, who first reported on Jackman’s recent decline to host the awards ceremonies, speculate that we will see a host announced very soon. And that the choice might be quite surprising…
Justin Bieber, anyone?
And on that slightly scary note, here are the links to click if you’re looking to grab the first Wolverine film on DVD or Blu-Ray!
