Like a bad cartoon pun, DC Collectibles' upcoming DC Comics Bombshells Batwoman re-envisions Kathy Kane as either a baseball player or a bat-wielding vigilante. The figure was recently featured as part of a Bombshells promotional video.

While I like the statue (far more than I thought I would), I don't get why they went with this bland angle instead of doing something closer to the concept art. Is her head not swung around enough for that? All things considered, however, I'd say that DCC hit this one out of the park.

For those wanting to cover their bases, retailers have already begun pitching pre-orders. You can pick this one up from Entertainment Earth for US$100 and get free shipping on your order.

Hold that rocket! Roxy Rocket leads DCC's latest solicits photo
Hold that rocket! Roxy Rocket leads DCC's latest solicits
by Scarecroodle

DC Collectibles has released its latest batch of solicits and headlining the selection is none other than a B:TAS Roxy Rocket.

Batman: The Animated Series and DC Animated Universe fans will recall that Roxy Rocket was a character created exclusively for The New Batman Adventures who enjoyed a little popularity despite only appearing in one Batman episode ("The Ultimate Thrill") and one Superman: The Animated Series episode ("Knight Time", where Superman is forced to impersonate Batman to cover for his disappearance). Roxy, of course, will always have fans (although nowhere near as many fellow B:TAS creation Harley Quinn) and her figure -- which comes with her iconic rocket -- marks the line's first B:TAS deluxe release. The downside? Her US$40 price tag, which makes the rocket (which adds US$15 to the MSRP) one expensive accessory.

Other highlights include Jae Lee's DC Designer Series 1 (Catwoman, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman), a Catwoman bust, a DC Comics Icons Green Lantern statue, a Gotham City Police Department badge (based on its appearance in the Gotham tv show), the DC Bombshells "newspaper boy" Lois Lane, and a Batman: Black & White Batgirl.

Most of these are due out in August and many should be available for pre-order right now. Be sure to check out the gallery for images.

What Ever Happened to Sideshow Superman? (He's right here!) photo
What Ever Happened to Sideshow Superman? (He's right here!)
by Oansun

He arrives! Well...soon at least. Sideshow Collectibles' Superman Sixth Scale action figure has a final production gallery ready for perusal. And he looks great. Hotly anticipated by fans of Sideshow's catering to the Silver and Bronze Age (more Silver), he should be in the hands of those who pre-ordered soon. Personally, I've been looking forward to this guy for a while. He has the look of Curt Swan drawing a Superman combining the looks of George Reeves and Christopher Reeves, then inked by John Byrne. At least...that's what I see.

The exclusive Metallo decapitated head is still available for those who want their Superman putting the hurt on robots. The gallery includes Batman beating up Superman with a Kryptonite ring (that was included with the Batman Sixth Scale), giving those of you that just want to see Bruce beat up his best friend Clark some catharsis.

The Sideshow team has worked extremely hard getting a classic, unique and iconic Last Son of Krypton for the big fans. Three heads, seven hands (an extra right hand for those confused by the math), two capes (one free-flow and one poseable), and more are included. The lone drawback I have (and boy does it sound dorky) is I think the cape should be a bit shorter for this more classic look. But that's what sewing machines are for! Just kidding...sort of... Anyway, check the gallery and make those decisions.

Tomopop Review: ArtFX+ Arkham City Batman

Kotobukiya released this 1/10-scale Batman based on his appearance in the very fun Batman: Arkham City game back in late August, so this is by no means a brand-spankin'-new figure. But it's new to me and I want to share my review.

Animated Batman is Diamond Comics Distributors' best-selling collectible for month of November photo
Animated Batman is Diamond Comics Distributors' best-selling collectible for month of November
by Scarecroodle

Diamond Comic Distributors has released the names of its top ten best-selling collectibles for the month of November and unsurprisingly DC Collectibles' Batman: The Animated Series Batman (1997 ver.) tops that list.

The list, which ranks collectibles based on units sold multiplied by unit price, also saw the Animated Series Catwoman take a higher billing as well as that cool (but extremely pricy) biker Catwoman statue. (Also worth noting is that NECA's D&D Icons of the Realm Tiamat made it onto the separate top ten list for gaming items.)

You can see the full collectibles list after the jump and check out the top five figures in the gallery.

Tomopop editor misses start of Matty Collector's amazing 7 Days of Cyber Monday Sale photo
Tomopop editor misses start of Matty Collector's amazing 7 Days of Cyber Monday Sale
by Scarecroodle

A thousand and one ARRRRGGGHHS! Matty Collector's 7 Days of Cyber Monday Sale opened to the general public (ie, us plebs who didn't buy a sub) at noon today and, despite remembering it all morning prior to the sale, I wound up not checking it until around 12:40. The result? I missed out out on some incredible figures at amazing prices.

The still on-going sale features steep discounts to last year's Club Infinite Earths figures (we're talking DC Universe figures at US$6 apiece!!!) and the Watchmen figures (US$15, down from US$25) as well as a modest 20% discount to the older MOTUCs (bringing them down to non-inflated prices). Oh, plus the new over-sized Doomsday Unleashed is on sale for US$40. His companion, the containment suit version (previously on sale at SDCC), apparently sold out during Early Access.

So, what was sold out by the time I got there? Larfleeze. Ras Al Ghul. Elasti-Girl. LEAD! John Constantine (By the way, have you seen the show Constantine yet? It's pretty awesome, like Doctor Who x Supernatural). Red Hood. All of which were available for US$6 (except the oversized Elasti-Girl and Lead who were US$9 which is still an incredible deal).

Sure, I still managed to grab the Doomsday Unleashed and a bunch of the discounted DCUs as well as a few choice MOTUCs (at long last my He-Man collection will finally include a He-Man), but I hate missing out on those US$9 over-sized DCUs because that's a mind-bogglingly low price for two of the coolest over-sized selections (no disrespect to Bane and Darkseid). Plus Larfleeze? I can't believe I missed out on McGreedy.

Of course, the more recent items weren't on sale at all. I wound up just buying Intergalactic Skeletor because, with the FREE SHIPPING (on orders of over US$99), it beat having to keep looking on the aftermarket for a great deal (although I fully expect that I would have had an opportunity to get him cheaper by this time next year). And, of course, Castle Grayskull wasn't marked down at all. Perhaps I should be grateful for that? After all, I might not be able to resist the gigantic playset if it was on sale for less than US$200.

Does anything stroke your fancy?
