Nendoroid Batman among GSC WonFes teasers?
by Scarecroodle

Good Smile Company has posted some photos of the group getting ready for Summer Wonder Festival and, amid the usual expected teasers, there was at least one complete surprise in the form of an unidentifiable Batman-shaped Nendoroid.

While one can never be 100% certain about anything when it comes to teasers, that certainly looks like Batman's utility belt on an armored Nendoroid with a Batman-esque cape. I would be a little bit more sure about the identity if the gauntlets featured the spikes. However, even in their absence, I look at this Nendoroid and thoughts are still, "Is that Batman?"

Hopefully this mystery fit for a world's greatest detective will be solved at WonFes when this Batman-shaped Nendoroid's true identity is revealed. In the mean-time, check out the gallery for a full image of the teaser as well as a look at some of the other items being teased.

Sideshow Collectibles has unveiled the first image of its newly-announced Premium Format Power Girl and, to the surprise of absolutely no-one, the photo centers around the Kryptonian's cleavage and includes the caption, "Hey, eyes up here," which might as well be Power Girl's catchphrase (or battle cry, for that matter).

Power Girl will officially unveiled alongside a Sixth Scale Green Lantern and Flash at SDCC later this week. Check out the full image in the gallery.

Kotobukiya has posted a teaser for what could be either an ArtFX+ Deadpool. The image depicts the mutant's arm and shoulder as he draws a sword.

Kotobukiya has been top-loading on teasers going into SDCC, including several Bishoujos teased (the Marvel Bishonen line remains... well, not happening). The ArtFX+ Deadpool was announced in a Kotobukiya catalog earlier this year and is the first new Marvel Now! ArtFX+ statue shown since the Marvel Now! Avengers series.

Expect the full unveil at SDCC.

Kotobukiya has released a teaser image for what appears to be a Marvel Bishoujo Wasp sketch along with the caption, "HI! I'm the Wasp! And you've just been STUNG!"

The Wasp is best known for her Avengers affiliation, as she was a founding member of the group and a regular on its roster (despite having yet to appear in film...). More recently she was one of the starring characters in the short-lived Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes (subsequently replaced by Avengers Assemble, which features more of a movie-verse cast). Her powers have included shrinking to about the size of a wasp, growing (up to 40-feet tall?), bio-electric stingers, and the ability to control insects.

This will be the character's first appearance in the line.

Is Mattel's next San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Cerise Wolf?
by Natalie Kipper

At this year's San Diego Comic-Con, Mattel is not only bringing Monster High exclusive dolls but an exclusive Ever After High doll as well. A teaser image of the Ever After High figure popped up on Instagram yesterday and fans have already decoded the character and made a solid guess on the outfit. The mention of the character's "big bad" shoes hints towards Cerise Wolf, daughter of Red Riding Hood, being the exclusive doll. More will certainly be revealed in the days leading up to SDCC. Keep your eyes on Tomopop for more updates as they come in.
