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.

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.
Day twelve brings us two items from the DC Universe in two different scales to boot. From Sideshow Collectibles we get the Poison Ivy Premium Format. This stunning collectible comes in with a price tag of $350, a $35 NRD, and changeout man eating blooms for the exclusive collector. No matter if you decide to get the exclusive version or the regular you will have time to save up or stretch things out with Sideshow’s flex pay plan. The other DC item folks can order is from Hot Toys and the next big thing this summer The Dark Knight Rises. The figure coming to collectors is Batman himself in DX format. This thing comes loaded with multiple sculpts for the face of the masked version, maskless sculpt, hands, and other goodies. This figure will set ya back $260 with a $26 NRD charged shortly after purcahse. However, you can also flex pay this figure which will help spread things out before its December release.
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
One of this Summers most anticipated films The Dark Knight Rises has just gotten its first figure announcement from the folks at Hot Toys. The character announced is Bane what appears to be the main villain in the film. Now, in this preview we don’t get a facial shot nor when this will go up but we at least fans know who to expect first from this movie. As soon as it goes up I will let you know.
Today, in Sideshow Collectibles Newsletter we get two amazing items one for fans of Batman and one for fans of Star Wars. Fans of the Caped Crusader get a second chance to order one of the coolest items Hot Toys has ever made for the Batman series of figures.

The Batmobile will cost ya $470 and will have a NRD of $47 charged with the first 24-48 hours of the time of purchase. Star Wars fans got a preview of a really superb looking Battle Droid with STAP. I got a chance to see this combo at Comic-Con last year and it will be worth a purchase. Stay tuned next week for when this goes up for Pre-Order.

If you’re a fan of DC then the last day of the 12 days of Sideshow brought a great bit of news. During the last day on Wednesday fans got an amazing video of many of the items Sideshow has planned for the Justice League. The video showcased items like a Batman comic Premium Format, life-sized Superman bust, etc.
Check out the video here: DC Justice League Video
Alright, after having this for a while I’m finally reviewing the Hot Toys Superman figure. As I said in my video this is one of the best Superman figures ever and even more so because part of the money goes to the Christopher Reeves foundation. While maybe a bit lighter on extras the detail, paint, and outfit of the figure really put this thing over the top. He’s still in-stock at Sideshow and if you’re wanting to add it to your collection do so now!
The 2011 version of Sideshow Collectibles Spooktacular event has come to an end and what an event it was in 2011. Star Wars fans got plenty of love with multiple items and previews and Ringers also got a nice treat with a brand new maquette announcement. Marvel and DC fans were not left out either with amazing pieces coming from those licenses.
The Lord of the Rings maquette line got a great announcement and the first bad guy announced in this line so far with the Ringwraith/Witch King maquette. This awesome piece captures the Witch King as he’s on weathertop moving towards Frodo about to stab him. The exclusive item on this piece is a switch out right hand holding the dagger completing the Witch King look. The exclusive and regular will cost $250 and have a NRD of $25. This piece will ship to collectors sometime during Quarter 3 of next year.
Star Wars fans got several items for order as I said ranging from nearly every line that Sideshow Collectibles has. From the 1:6th line for an instock purchase fans get a chance to order the Utapau Shadow Trooper and a pre-order of the Holiday Yoda both of which I talked about already. Also in Sideshow’s production blog we got a great video of the upcoming The Phantom Menace Obi-wan Kenobi 1:6th figure. Premium Format collectors got a chance to order Grand Moff Tarkin and I-TO Interrogator Droid which is a stunning piece to add to your collection.
