DCC releases Scribblenauts Unmasked checklist photo
DCC releases Scribblenauts Unmasked checklist
by Scarecroodle

DC Collectibles has unveiled a checklist for its Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure blind-boxed line which includes some of the secret characters. The graphic seems to include the selection from the first four series, although Series 3's and 4's hidden characters may be absent.

More interesting is that the figures appear to be to scale, showing off the height difference between characters like Bane and power suit Lex Luthor compared to the rest (or the fact that Beast Boy is tiny). DC Collectibles lists Series 3 as being at retail right now (albeit NOT in my area...) and that Series 4 is slated to hit next month.

Be sure to check out the full image in the gallery.

Will you pony up for My Little Pony Mystery Minis series 2? photo
Will you pony up for My Little Pony Mystery Minis series 2?
by Scarecroodle

A second series of Funko's My Little Pony Mystery Minis is slated to release in August. As with the first series, the standard retail assortment consists mostly of black decos for the characters. However, as with series 1, Hot Topic will be carrying an exclusive version of the set which includes some additional show-accurate versions of the ponies.

Series 2 consists of ten figurines (rarity chart in gallery) with a basically equal chance of getting any of the figures. We weren't provided with a rarity chart for the Hot Topic version, but it's probably a safe assumption that the show-accurate colors will be rarer (ie, 1/24 instead of 1/12).

Not only are there a ton of great options in the standard blind boxes but also several special variant editions.
