Comic-Con 2012 Recap Part 4: Hot Toys Marvel & DC

Recap #4 from Comic-Con 2012 covers the Hot Toys items from Comic-Con 2012. Hot Toys had all of the currently released items from The Avengers and even brought with them the new Mark VII figure. Seeing all of these characters together made me very happy that I will have several of these items in my collection. Also PreViewed on Hot Toys Facebook page fans got a chance to see two more items coming from The Avengers. The two new items are a figure for Agent Coulson and a Chitari Footsoldier. You can still Pre-Order all of these through Sideshow Collectibles by using an affiliate link. Hot Toys also had some awesome DC items there as well with their Batman figures from TDKR, TDK, and even a classic Batmobile.

Comic-Con 2012 Recap Part 3: Sideshow Collectibles Marvel & DC

Today, I’ve got more from the Sideshow Collectibles booth with their Marvel and DC items. Sideshow this year showed again they’ve got the skills when it comes to Marvel and really surprised me with a DC offering that I will be getting a few from. Marvel wise the Iron Man Mark VI LSB was fantastic to see in person as was the Hulk Maquette from The Avengers. Maybe the most impressive Marvel piece though was the LSF of Dr. Doom himself and has been shown on Sideshow site this item will have switch out sculpts. DC fans should be jumping for joy with the items that Sideshow had at Comic-Con with the Superman 1:1 bust, Superman PF, Batman PF, Green Lantern PF, and the amazing 1:6th figures Sideshow had on display. These comic based figures are a must if you’re a fan of these characters. As more info is released on them I will make sure you know.

Sideshow Collectbiles Online Comic-Con Day 13

Day 13 of Sideshow Collectibles Online Comic-Con turned out to be lucky for fans of The Lord of the Rings, DC, Star Wars and Avatar. Fans of The Lord of the Rings get to finally pre-order the Twilight Witch-King statue from The Fellowship of the Ring. This superb statue is a great counter part to the Ringwraith statue released previously in this range of collectibles. The Witch-King will cost $275 with a $27 NRD but you do have the Flex-Pay program to save up for the March 2013 release. Fans of the Star Wars Saga get a pre-order and a preview during day 13 of the event. The Pre-Order is the cooler of the Fetts in my opinion in Jango Fett with a 1:1 bust. This highly detailed bust will cost $800 with a $80 NRD as always you have the flex pay program to help defer the costs until the February 2013 release. The preview is for my personal favorite Jedi in the Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi. No details other than this great preivew below but as soon as I get more info I will pass it on. DC fans get a preview of the upcoming Catwoman Legendary Scale Figure and Avatar fans get a preview of the life size bust of Neytiri.

Sideshow Collectibles Online Comic-Con Even Day 6

Day 6 of Sideshow Collectibles Online Comic-Con event brings us a great looking LSF and a preview of an upcoming DC Premium Format. The newest Legendary Scale Figure announced by Sideshow is from their The Dead license and is the character The Reaper: Death’s General. This is an amazing collectible that I had the chance to see last year during Sideshow Freaks party. It is totally worth the $1,000 price tag simply based on the size, detail, and presence it will have in your collection. This piece does come with multiple heads based on the picture I have for you, multiple switch out arms, and as I said detailed like crazy. Of course this has an NRD of $200 but you will then be able to flex pay the rest of it to save the hit on your wallet. Also teased today via their Facebook page is the an upcoming DC Premium Format of Poison Ivy. No other information is available but my guess is this will be at Comic-Con

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 21,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
