Sailor Mercury is revealed as the next Sailor Moon series Pullip

The brains of the Inner Senshi, Sailor Mercury, is joining Sailor Moon in the realm of Pullip dolls. This may just be me, but Mercury seems to look a lot better in this line than Moon does. Maybe it's the haircut. Groove also...

Matty Collector's post-SDCC sale starts at noon EST on August 4th and includes, but is not limited to, the DCU containment suit Doomsday.

Other non-DCU containment suit Doomsday SDCC items up for sale include the Monster High Manny Taur and Iris Clops 2-pack, the MotUC Hordak with Imp (but not the Imp as a treasure chest, which was SDCC-only), the Total Heroes Cyborg, the Arkham Knight Batmobile, and "Turbo Charged" Max Steel.

As such, this is a great opportunity to pick up a containment suit Doomsday if you weren't able to make it to SDCC along with, well, some other stuff like that neat-looking Manny Taur.

[ Order at Matty Collector ]

SDCC 2014: Monster High

Greetings, ghouls and spooks! This year there were a ton of new Monster High dolls shown on display that you'll be able to pick up in upcoming months. After recently getting my boyfriend addicted to Monster High, I'm excited ...

SDCC 2014: Mezco
by Scarecroodle

Mezco's booth once again featured a good deal of Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad collectibles, including a Gus Fring figure and a spoiler-y Gus Fring figure (so avoid the rest of that photo if you're planning on watching the show) as well as a Saul Goodman bobblehead (better call your favorite retailers!). Among the other items on display was the new Frank Miller-inspired Dark Knight Batman line, some new Living Dead Dolls, and so on.

I remain impressed by the Gillman and Headless Horseman Living Dead Dolls; however, I'm a little confused since the Headless Horseman is currently available for pre-order but there's nothing about his horse. A few of the additions look neat as well.

Be sure to check out the gallery, especially since I can't ID any of the Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad characters. You know, if nothing else, Mezco's booth is a reminder that I really need to watch those shows already...

Ever After High's Cerise Wolf confirmed for SDCC photo
Ever After High's Cerise Wolf confirmed for SDCC
by Natalie Kipper

For Ever After High fans awaiting more news after Tuesday's teaser image, the time for the full reveal has come. As predicted, the San Diego Comic-Con exclusive is none other than Cerise Wolf (a.k.a. Cerise Hood), the daughter of Red Riding Hood and the Big, Bad Wolf. She comes garbed in a blood red dress and wolf's pelt, honoring both sides of her lineage. Notice that fangs are visible on this doll, unlike previous versions.

To get your paws on this doll, you have several options, including one for those who can't make it the con. The first option is pre-ordering it for pick-up at SDCC during the Voucher sale at MattyCollector. The sale begins on June 23 at 8 a.m. Pacific for Club Eternia subscribers. For everyone else, the start is June 24 at 9 a.m., provided they haven't sold out of the allocated stock during Early Access. The second option is to simply brave the lines at SDCC and purchase it straight from Mattel's booth. Finally, starting on August 4 at the MattyCollector After Party Sale, everyone will have a chance to purchase a Cerise Wolf from their online store. Priority goes to Club Eternia subscribers, who will be able to order beginning August 4 at 8 a.m. Pacific. And if there are any dolls left, the flood gates will open to the public starting August 5 at 9 a.m. Pacific.

As of yet, we don't know the edition size nor the price of Cerise Wolf.

Is Mattel's next San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Cerise Wolf? photo
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.

Mattel's Manny Taur and Iris Clops look to be an SDCC power couple  photo
Mattel's Manny Taur and Iris Clops look to be an SDCC power couple
by Natalie Kipper

The badges have (hopefully) been purchased, the hotel rooms booked, now it's time to start talking about San Diego Comic-Con exclusives. Mattel revealed that one of their much-coveted con-exclusive toys will be a two-pack of dolls from their Monster High line, featuring the characters Manny Taur and Iris Clops. The announcement contained a small picture (which you can view in its entirety in the gallery) and a little summary for the pair:

Bull in china shop seeks gentle ghoul with the stars in her eye to help navigate the confusing maze of high school love.

I am not terribly fond of the way these two look as far as Monster High dolls go. I thought the previous years' exclusives (see 2013 here) were much better. But if these are your cup of tea, the pre-order starts on June 24 on MattyCollector.com, where you will later pick them up at SDCC. Alternatively, you can try your luck with the lines at the con. Or if you feel intensely lucky, you can wait to order it online on August 5. They will cost US$40.

Cardcaptor Sakura dolls are a blast from the past photo
Cardcaptor Sakura dolls are a blast from the past
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Back in the late 1990s when Cardcaptor Sakura was hitting its stride Bandai released a very popular series of dolls with bendy limbs and cloth outfits. These were so popular that when Nelvana got the TV series and rebranded it as Cardcaptors, Trendmasters repackaged Bandai's dolls and sold them in North America. Many of those ended up back overseas in Asia; I know I had a small hand in sending some of them that way to friends that couldn't find Bandai versions of the rarer dolls. At the time they were sold pretty cheaply and would eventually drop further on clearance. 

Fast forward to 2014 and it's Takara Tomy making the bendy dolls in cloth costumes as part of the Licca-chan Liccarize series. They really do look a lot like the dolls that Bandai and Trendmasters released back some 14 years ago, except where those were released for around US$10 to US$15 each (if my memory hasn't completely failed me) the Takara Tomy ones are considerably more. Both dolls are exclusive to the Takara Tomy Mall in limited amounts and sell for a rather painful ¥7,236 each. 

If I knew basically the same doll would inflate in price seven times I might have picked up a couple back in the day. Lesson learned, I guess.
