I have never really been a Black Friday shopper. I know many people where Black Friday is as much of a family tradition as Thanksgiving itself. I have nothing against it, I just rather spend that time eating left overs and decorating for Christmas. This year could be different though, thanks to Lego. You see their highly anticipated 1989 Batmobile will go on sale Black Friday. I know there is the internet and I could just order it online from the comfort of my home, but where is the fun in that?
So, I was at the mall this past weekend and decided to swing past the Lego Store to do a little recon. The guy working the floor was just as excited as I was when I asked him about it. He replied, “I got a surprise for you, we just finished building it.” He then ran to the back to grab it so I could drool on it in person. (more…)
DC Collectibles had a bunch of reveals at their panel today at NYCC. They discussed a lot of upcoming releases. The fan favorites seem to be the new additions to animated series line. It’s looks like we are finally getting some sort of The Batman Who Laughs action figure. I’m not a huge collector of statues but some of the new additions look really cool. I apologize for the crappy photos but check out the rundown below.
After a busy few weeks I am finally able to enjoy some new additions to the personal collection. One of those is the new Mezco Toyz One:12 Jim Gordon. Sure, I needed a Jim Gordon figure to help Bats chase down the bad guys, but the bat signal was the main reason I got this figure. I know I am not the only one with that mentality.
The box is the usual One:12 box, but bigger; with the outer sleeve being die cut to enhance the artwork. Out of the box you get 2 heads, 6 hands, removable trench coat, removable watch, removable GCPD vest, walkie talkie, GCPD badge, gun and holster, blast FX, and, of course, rotatable Bat Signal with light-up function. You also get the standard display stand and post. (more…)
