DC Comics Supervillains Poison Ivy, with The New 52 look

DC Comics fans are about to be all agape over this Poison Ivy, specially based on The New 52 series reboot! Batman’s most lovely, most venomous adversary is here in six-inch format, clad in a skintight suit of leafy green and charcoal black. She’s also set with her signature fiery mane, of course. She’s an integral part of the collection of Batman’s enemies known as the rogue gallery, and she definitely deserves a place in the spotlight.

Whether her kiss is poison or antidote, one can never know. She comes in classic window-box packaging, already set for display alongside your other DC collectibles. Or free her from her cardboard-and-plastic prison and re-create the most memorable of comic-book scenes.

That girl is poison.

That girl is poison.

Let Ant-Man safeguard your change with this new bust bank

Monogram has fashioned this “piggy” bank especially for Marvel fans! Check out this seven-inch Ant-Man bust, rendered in exacting detail to make him leap right off your comic-book pages. Although several characters have gone by the moniker of Ant-Man throughout the different years and storylines, he was originally the alter ego of scientist Dr. Hank Pym, who invented an innovative formula that allowed him to shrink to miniscule size.

So get ready for the new Marvel film that will debut this summer and nab a bank before they’re all gone! He’s clad in his characteristic red-and-black costume, fists balled and poised for attack.

Definitely not the kind of "ant" that buys you ill-fitting sweaters for your birthday every year.

Justice League Batman is next up in black-and-white statue series

Renowned for his work on Marvel’s Captain Marvel and DC’s Green Lantern series, Brazilian artist Ivan Reis is in a class all his own. And now, with this exclusive collaboration between Reis and sculptor Mat Brouillard, you can own the Dark Knight himself for display among your other DC collectibles.

This stunning statue is crafted according to the aesthetic of the hugely popular comic-book series Justice League. Manufactured as a limited run of 5,200 to honor the quintessential New 52, this six-inch, black-and-white offering isn’t one to sleep on. Batman is encroached upon a fully functional display stand, with one foot off of the base and one foot on to create a “mid-movement” look. Harness the power of Gotham City’s hero now!

Who needs color, anyways?

Review: Carsley’s Comics – Montreal Comic Book Retail Store

Tucked away in an office building in Downtown Montreal, Carsley’s Comics can be easy to miss for those not in the know. But comic book fans would do well to take note of its location and track it down for some of the best deals you’ll find in the city on a ton of comics both new and old.  They have an excellent subscription service so make sure you start your reserve there.

They recently took part in the Montreal ToyCon and we were happy to have them selling their wares and even giving away a number of items in celebration of Free Comic Book Day (May 1st). Personally, I picked up Batman: City of Crime for an awesome reduced convention price and I’ll definitely be heading back to their store very soon.

If you’re looking to check them out, you can head to Peel metro or drive down and get yourself to:

1117 St. Catherine Street West, Suite 917
Montreal, Quebec, H3B 1H9


Here’s a handy map! Plus, they can also be reached at: (514) 289-9761 (ask for the comic book store)

We have been getting quite a bit of questions on the next show date of the Montreal ToyCon.  We are currently looking at relocating the show to downtown Montreal.  To try and keep the dealer table and general admission price down, we do not plan to have the show at the Convention Center (Palais des Congres) or the Place Bonaventure.  These two locations cost a fortune to rent and frankly…are a rip off.

We firmly believe in keeping low cost tables for the dealers so they can display a wide variety of products as well as offering great prices to the public.  The success of this toy and comic book show depends on all the hard working dealers who offer rare collectibles at a very reasonable price.  Of course, the show is also dependent on the scores of happy dedicated customers attending.  The combination of both has resulted in a great successful show thus far.

We would like to thank all our exhibitors:

Lego Club (QueLug). It was a pleasure meeting all these Lego experts and seeing their creations was a real treat.  We hope they return to the May 2009 show.  We have some cool pictures of their display.  Photos

501st Legion Quebec Garrison (Alliance Imperial). These are the costumed characters as pictured above.  From Star Wars Stormtroopers to Transformers, they really looked great.  Most of the costumes were homemade but they look so realistic, it was impressive.  You cannot buy these costumes at a store.  You can take a look at some of the photos from the show.  Bravo…guys and gals…can’t wait to check out their new costumes for the next show.   We desperately need to see Darth Vader.   Photos
