With Comic-Con International: San Diego just over a month away, plenty of collectible companies are debuting exclusives for the show taking place July 9-12. DC Collectibles has an adorable Krypto plush and brand new Batman while Diamond Select Toys features “Age of Ultron” Minimates and Bif Bang Pow celebrates the first time two women hosted “Saturday Night Live’s” Weekend Update on a regular basis. Additionally, Square Enix has a new Thor, Hot Toys debuted OG Luke Skywalker, Vinyl Sugar unveiled “Dodgeball” figures and so much more!
DC COLLECTIBLES SDCC EXCLUSIVES | DC Collectibles decided to debut a pretty interesting new collectible line as a Comic-Con Exclusive this year: BlueLine Edition figures. The inaugural entry comes from Jim Lee and features Batman. The Limited Edition comes with an original sketch from the man himself while the Standard includes just the figure. DCC also showed off a 6-inch plush version of Krypto based on Art Baltazar’s “DC Super Pets” designs.
DIAMOND SELECT TOYS SDCC EXCLUSIVES | For their SDCC exclusives, Diamond Select teamed up with Action Figure Xpress to present a series of collectibles that can be purchased up at the show or pre-ordered online. This year’s booty includes a masked Predator bottle opener, a 1979 style glow-in-the-dark Alien Minimate, a Supergirl Femme Fatale PVC statue and an “Avengers: Age of Ultron” box set featuring Final Form Ultron, Iron Legion, Iron Man Mark 45, Tony Stark and Nick Fury.
NECA SDCC EXCLUSIVES | NECA previously unveiled glow-in-the-dark SDCC exclusive versions of the Terminator Endoskeleton and Predator, but they took to Toy Ark to unveil another exclusive: Rambo! This particular version takes its cues from the wildly bizarre “Rambo: The Force of Freedom” cartoon and action figure line from the ’80s. The packaging reflects the old school Coleco toys and also features a new head sculpt with plenty of weapons.
BIF BANG POW SDCC EXCLUSIVES | The last and most unexpected
SDCC exclusive unleashed this week comes from Bif Bang Pow. It’s a “Saturday Night Live” Weekend Update 2-pack featuring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler that comes with a fold-out set. This set is limited to just 2,400 sets, so hurry up if you want to get your hands on them.
THOR | When it comes to unique, highly-detailed Marvel figures, Square Enix continues to impress. The latest figure shown off by US distributors Sideshow Collectibles is none other than the thunder god Thor. The 11-inch figure comes packed with Mjolnir, an alternate face, different hands and hammer and lightning effects. The figure ships this fall.
STAR WARS | He might have started off kind of whiny, but Luke Skywalker eventually became one of the greatest heroes the galaxy has ever known. Hot Toys celebrates his early days as seen in “A New Hope” with the latest 12-inch figure. The basic figure comes with an LED lightsaber, hat with goggles, new head sculpt, poncho and stand while a special edition will feature a Stormtrooper belt, communicator, blaster rifle and grappling hook.
DC MOPEEZ | We’re used to seeing Batman in a bad mood, but there’s something kind of sad about a depressed Harley Quinn and Flash, but that’s what Funko’s going for with their Mopeez line. In addition to those three characters, the August-shipping line will feature Superman, Batgirl, Joker and Robin.
ALIENS | NECA previewed the fifth line of their “Aliens” line at this year’s New York Toy Fair, but now the line is officially scheduled to hit in August, so let’s give it another look. The line includes Ripley, the wonderfully eviscerated Queen Attack Bishop and black and red Xenomorphs from the “Aliens: Genocide” comic book.
MORTAL KOMBAT X | Mezco announced plans to take their “Mortal Kombat X” figures to the next level this week by offering 12-inch, 1:6 scale action figures. As you might expect, the first two characters making the cut are Sub-Zero and Scorpion, both of whom come with game-accurate weapons and nearly a dozen points of articulation. Both bad boy brawlers ship in December.
DODGEBALL | “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story” might not be the most beloved comedy of the mid-2000s, but the Vince Vaughn-Ben Stiller comedy features a solid cast and plenty of great gags. Vinyl Sugar understands all that by incorporating main characters Peter La Fleur and White Goodman into their Vinyl Idolz line. If these August-shipping toys do well enough, here’s hoping we also get Christine Taylor’s Kate Veatch, Justin Long’s Justin, Steven Root’s Gordon and Alan Tudyk’s Steve the Pirate.
