DCC's Scribblenauts Unmasked series 4 possibly at a retailer near you photo
DCC's Scribblenauts Unmasked series 4 possibly at a retailer near you
by Scarecroodle

Series 4 of DC Collectibles' Scribblenauts Unmasked blind-boxed series is showing up at retail (or, at least, has just started to show at Gamestops). The wave, which has undergone a few changes at this point (unless Swamp thing and others are comic store only), now consists of a power suited Lex Luthor, Catwoman, Beast Boy, Constantine, Mercury, another version of Batman, and a gold version of Cyborg, as well as the hidden rare Batman Beyond and Maxwell as Superman.

My own pulls started disappointing. After realizing that Series 4 was in AND that Series 1 was on clearance, I didn't put much thought or effort into the two S4 boxes I bought. The result? Two Catwomen. It marked the first time I had a duplicate from this blind-boxed series. I wound up going back the next day and tried to determine which one had the Lex Luthor by its relative weight, a process that worked better than that time I accidentally got Maxwell as Starro when trying for Bane. The Lex Luthor is the largest figure that DCC has released in the line thus far although it's slightly shorter than Maxwell as Starro.

While it's an okay line-up (not as good as I thought it'd be), I imagine that I may just wait and see whether the later series will wind up marked down to half off as well instead of picking up additional boxes.

Has anybody else tried their luck?

Rev up your Harley for DCC's latest solicits photo
Rev up your Harley for DCC's latest solicits
by Scarecroodle

DC Collectibles' latest batch of solicits features two new Harley Quinns, a John Stewart action figure, the New-52 Poison Ivy, a Sandman chess set, and more, which are due out in July.

The attention-grabbers here are probably the DC Cover Girls Harley Quinn (pre-order here) which features the Joker's side-kick/love interest in her classic costume. The pose is a little odd, but it's a neat design. Also up for pre-order is a more contemporary Harley Quinn action figure which features the New 52 incarnation in a roller derby outfit. It's certainly less provocative than some of the outfits they've stuck her in over the years.

Of course, my favorite item out of the bunch might be the Sandman chess set... which has a whopping US$300 price tag. Oh well, it's not like I play chess anyway.

Most of these items are currently available for pre-order at the usual places. Be sure to check out a few of the collectibles in the gallery.

PopVinyl.net is reporting that Funko has announced a new Vinyl Vixens line, which is set to premier with Batman babes Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, and Catwoman.

The line, which apparently draws inspiration from pin-up art, will appear at Hot Topic and other retailers in coming months.

Wacky Wobblers line gets a little crazy with Harley Quinn and Deadpool photo
Wacky Wobblers line gets a little crazy with Harley Quinn and Deadpool
by Scarecroodle

Funko's Wacky Wobblers line just got a little crazier with the addition of Deadpool and Harley Quinn.

The Joker's sidekick/love interest is depicted with her trusty, trademark mallet (accept no baseball bat substitutes) and looks fairly neat in bobblehead form. Deadpool, on the other hand, stands with his sword at the ready in one hand while the other is in a thumbs up position. It's great for knowing that whatever you're doing at the moment, Deadpool approves. How can you go wrong with that kind of encouragement?

Funko's Wacky Wobbler Deadpool is slated for a November release while Harley Quinn is set to follow in January. Get ready to go nuts.

Square Enix's Variant Play Arts Kai Harley Quinn and Joker are currently available for pre-order.

The duo had appeared at a few cons, although the fan reception here wasn't as high as you might expect. It's certainly not a bad look for Harley Quinn and I'd definitely say that more went right than wrong... although that's not the strongest recommendation. Still, I think she looks cool!

The Joker is another matter entirely, with his frighteningly beakish nose... which, along with the other features, gives the character a nightmarish look. It's a choice that works exceptionally well on some levels (in that he should be scary), not so much on others (in the fear should be more subtle). All things considered, the only thing I don't like are his shoes.

Variant Play Arts Kai Joker and Harley Quinn can be pre-ordered for ¥9,800 apiece and are slated for a January release.

Spider-Man, Catwoman, and Iron Man will be the newest inductions to Square-Enix's Variant Play Arts Kai line and are some of the most exciting designs to grace the line. If that wasn't enough, fans can look forward to a Final Fantasy Creatures Kai set (featuring Siren, one of the Bahumuts, etc), the recently announced PAK Hatsune Miku, many historical Batmans, and so much more.

The major highlight here might be the VPAK Spider-Man, which sports what may be a very neat armored design. That certainly doesn't take anything away from Catwoman, however, whose crazy design I didn't even recognize at first. Oh, and what's that? An awesome set of optional attachments for VPAK Iron Man? Could there really be this much want all in one place?

Be sure to check out the gallery for a closer look.

SDCC and WonFes may have been almost a month ago at this point, but many of its collectibles are still on our minds. Tian recently posted the top ten things he was looking forward to from these cons and, because I'm far more excitably (and exceedingly less orderly), my own highlights list is nowhere near that short.

See many of my favorites after the jump.
