3A Toys' display @ San Diego Comic Con 2013 captured on video by Ryno Farroki, and I am grateful.
Been extremely interested to see the customs for the Remix Big Boss Robot at Giant Robot booth #1729 at San Diego Comic Con (July 17-21, 2013), and thank goodness GR is pretty staunch in archiving their stuff, and here are snaps to share (swiped from this posting). Do check in with the folks at the booth for availability of the pieces :)
Brandt Peters and Katie Olivas' Wandering Misfits mini figures in White, seen at the Cardboard Spaceship Toys booth #5346 in San Diego Comic Con (July 17-21, 2013). Do feel free to check out my previous post for what exclusives they have for SDCC!
Remember that awesome DINO FETT custom MegaMunny from The Yellow Dino seen at Star Wars Day Jakarta? Well, "clones" of the 19-inch tall piece is being opened for pre-orders now, direct from TYD!
Priced at US$1000 per (shipping not included), pre-orders are limited to only 10 pieces, within a limited time (unknown amount of time tho), with all parts casted in resin, hand painted and "battle damaged" individually, so each Fett is different.
Contact TYD online here, or email direct info [at] theyellowdino.com.

Hey Kids! Yeah, the Bat-Blog has a lot of readers who are not only serious Batman Fans but they're parents as well. So, I thought it would be nice to post a few DC Comics' BEWARE THE BATMAN Coloring Pages so you can keep those little kids busy! (You're welcome)
Now, I guess you could enlarge the few examples I have posted here down below, print them out, and they could color those. But, if you want some that are way more higher quality and a few more choices, then please CLICK HERE to download a FREE PDF FILE you can print out.
Check out this special Limited-Edition Art Print spotlighting the Classic Batman TV Series by artist Tom Whalen. It features Batman (Adam West), Robin the Boy Wonder (Burt Ward), The Joker, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, The Penguin, the Riddler and the Vintage 1966 Batmobile Car!
It measures about 18” x 24" and is a Numbered Screen Print Ltd Ed of 350. It retails for about $60.00 and they come in two different color variations that you can view by clicking RIGHT HERE!
Also, this would make an excellent gift idea for my birthday, which is in January, so you have plenty of time to save some money!
Next up in our 2013 San Diego Comic-Con coverage is a gallery showing off everything on display in the Toynami booth. Follow the above link to have a closer look!
WOW! This year's 2013 San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) revealed a lot of great Batman Toys and Merchandise that we can all hunt down later. Well, those of us who are not broke, ha! Mattel has plans to make what they are calling the "Movie Masters Epic Creations DC Classic TV Series BATMAN Utility Belt".
It's release date is around the Fall of 2013 and will be available ONLY on the MattyCollector.Com website and will retail for about $110.00.
Basically, it's a replica of the YELLOW BAT-BELT worn by Adam West on the 1966 TV Show. It also looks like it comes with a Batarang too!
Our photographic tour of the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con continues with a new gallery rounding out everything on displa Hot Toys has their figures and related items on display in the Sideshow Collectibles booth that didn't make it into the last gallery. Follow this link to see on else on display in the Hot Toys section.
Finally!! Here is a photo showing what the Classic 1966 BATMAN TV Show HEROCLIX Figures and '66 Batmobile Toy Car are gonna look like!! It also shows the special Window-Box Packaging for the Car, which is kinda cool. Of course there will be a Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder set of figures but it looks like they have plans to make a ton of Super-Villains as well!!
Here's the list so far: The Joker, Egghead, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, The Riddler, and even Shame. Is that him? It's hard to tell but the toy figure in this pic does look just like a "Cowboy Guy". Wow! Now how obscure is that?!
The bread and butter of Bandai has always been Gundam. At Bluefin's booth was the MG RX-78-2 Gundam 3.0 and the collection of new suits from Gundam Build Fighters. In addition to Gunpla were other figure lines that don't get nearly as much attention, the relatively new Assault Kingdom, FW Gundam Converge and FWStandart.
As featured in the header was the exclusive edition of the Assault Kingdom Kshatriya. The figures are fully poseable, just in a figure the that's about 4" tall. Also on display were a set of Black Tri-Star Zaku IIs, which will be coming soon to the U.S.
Going along with the other two lines, they will be making their way to shops as well. FW Converge Vol. 11 will be coming this year for the price of $6.00 per boxed figure while FW Gundam STANDart Vol. 16 will be available soon for $12.00 each. Both of these are a step up from your usual gashapon figure, so if you seen a mobile suit you like, you won't part with too much to get it. Check out the gallery to see everything available from the booth!
OK, there are TWO great things about this photo and one of them I'm really proud of. First, we finally get to see what Moebius Models is doing with their brand-new line of Classic 1966 BATMAN TV Series Model kits.
Here, they show the Adam West figure. Oh man, this thing is a total Art Masterpiece!! I would have killed for this model when I was a little kid, ha!
Then, speaking of "Art Masterpiece", check out (to the right), the original BOX ART that was done by our good friend Christopher Franchi. Please click on the pic here for a larger, sharper, version.
Yeah, we know the guy who did this art. (He created the super-awesome BAT-BLOG HEADER that you see at the top of this page!!) His artwork is extremely detailed and always professionally well done. In fact, this box art is so amazing that it's kind of a shame that they will add all sorts of bar codes and lettering all over it later, ha ha! All kidding aside, the finished product will probably look great too.
The only product details we have right now is that it will come out in the last quarter of 2013 and will have a Suggested Retail Price of about $32.99.
Also, Stay tuned to the Bat-Blog and we'll keep you posted on more Model Kits that are coming out!
