NYCC 2014: Pop Culture Shock

It probably won't be much of a surprise that Pop Culture Shock arrived at New York Comic Con with some of their new licensed collectibles. After all, they have a pretty good track record of putting out expensive, but "worth t...

NYCC 2014: Kotobukiya drops some bombs at their panel

Funko has shown off two versions (each) of its upcoming NYCC-exclusive Pop! Star Sapphire Wonder Woman and Frost Giant Loki, to be sold at Fugitive Toys' booth (#410).

Both versions will be available in a standard edition as well as a variant; Star Sapphire WW has a metallic costume version while Frost Giant Loki seems to glow in the dark. I have to admit being a little surprised that the standard version of Star Sapphire is an exclusive in the first place, given that there's some fan demand for the character and she's more than just a simple repaint. Usually the more sculpting a figure gets, the more mileage its maker tries to get although I guess the body work must be minor enough that Funko isn't overly invested in the figure.

No word on pricing, but Fugitive Toys' previous exclusive Funko Pop! White Lantern Batman apparently ran for US$17 while its glow-in-the-dark version was US$25.

DC Cover Girls Vixen gets up-close and personal in a new photo gallery photo
DC Cover Girls Vixen gets up-close and personal in a new photo gallery
by Scarecroodle

DC Collectibles has released a photo gallery for its upcoming DC Cover Girls Vixen (last seen at SDCC). Casual DC Comics fans may remember the character as John Stewart's second love interest in Justice League Unlimited, whom he became involved with after breaking up with Hawkgirl. Vixen's superpower allowed her to channel the abilities of animals.

While the body-sculpting looks solid, I can't help but feel that DCC could have done a bit better with the face. Vixen is generally depicted as being extremely attractive but the face doesn't convey that idea very well. Granted, I'm also not a fan of the dreadlocks; I assume that they're part of a New-52 revamp, but I can't find any images that feature this particular hairstyle. 

DC Cover Girls Vixen will apparently be limited to 5,200 pieces. She can currently be pre-ordered for US$85 (free shipping through EE) and is slated for an April release.

NYCC-exclusive ArtFX+ Nightwing Origins receives new images photo
NYCC-exclusive ArtFX+ Nightwing Origins receives new images
by Scarecroodle

Kotobukiya has released additional images for the blue variant of its ArtFX+ Nightwing. The variant, dubbed Nightwing Origins, will be sold exclusively at NYCC and through a special pre-order event via Kotobukiya's US website.

I'm a little embarrassed because I can't recall when I first saw this colorway, although I vaguely recollect it being a while ago, but he was on display as recently as SDCC. As far as colorways go, this one was an eventuality given that it's probably the more recognized Nightwing colors (Batman: The Animated Series, Young Justice, etc, all used blue rather than red). As such, it's a little weird that Nightwing Origins is a convention exclusive rather than a normal release.

Expect additional details in the near future and be sure to check out the photos in the gallery.

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.

Matty Collector to unleash Doomsday after all photo
Matty Collector to unleash Doomsday after all
by Scarecroodle

After repeated insistence from Matty Collector that the company would NOT be releasing an "Unleashed" Doomsday in any way, shape or form because Club Infinite Earths tanked, Matty has announced that it will, in fact, be releasing that Unleashed Doomsday.

No price point has been announced, but he's slated to sell some time this Winter and will come in a window box diorama. Of course, my inner cynic is under the impression that Matty Collector intended to release the "Unleashed" Doomsday but held off on the announcement so the company would have an easier time moving the less-popular containment suit version. However, I'm just happy that we'll have an opportunity to get on our hands on this one.

Check out the gallery for an image of the Unleashed Doomsday as seen at a previous con as well as the previously leaked packaging (which may not necessarily reflect the final product).

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.
