DC Collectibles had a couple of display cases near the Batman costume display at this year’s New York Comic Con which included several versions of Batman along with his rogues gallery. The TV show Arrow was represented by Arrow, Canary and Deathstroke and the Tumbler from Lego was on display.
Between DC Collectibles, S.h. Figuarts and the other companies issuing figures from the DC Universe, collectors have a lot of excellent choices on the way.
The big draw to the Toynami booth were the Voltron offerings but they also had several cool Robotech items and will be releasing some Godzilla toys in the near future.
Bandai and Tamashii Nations are releasing new S.h. Figuarts from the new Batman Injustice video game and they look incredible. We were very impressed with the Harley Quinn figure which will be coming later. Batman and Joker are currently available for pre-order.
The Play Arts Kai line of figures from Square Enix have some of the most unique takes on superheroes such as Batman and Superman but also includes some excellent takes on Halo, Predator and Assassin’s Creed. Their booth at New York Comic Con was packed with a lot of really cool toys and we photographed most of what was on display.
ARH Studios had an impressive display of statues at New York Comic Con. There were several based on the artwork of Frank Frazetta, including the Death Dealer and Huntress. The polystone statues run several hundreds of dollars each and more information can be found on the ARH Studios website.
Star Ace makes 1:6 scale action figures and for Comic Con they were showing off their line of Harry Potter collectibles, including the newly revealed Voldemort and Sirius Black. All of their figures have very detailed face sculpts, on par with what Hot Toys is putting out, as well as excellent accessories.
The Ron and Harry figures include items such as the Sorting Hat, a Wizard Chess board and pieces and extra hands. Harry also comes with Hedwig and his brooms. Harry and Ron are the only two we see available for pre-order and they’re $185 from Big Bad Toy Store.
Check out the Star Ace website for more information on the figures.
Quantum Mechanix has several popular sci-fi licenses including Star Trek, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, and Star Wars and are releasing some cool prop replicas of ships and accessories such as communicator badges and dog tags.
The two most impressive items on display at New York Comic Con were the Artisan Replicas of the Serenity and Reliant starships from Firefly and Star Trek respectively. Both feature lights, hand painted detail and incredible display bases. All of the detail and craftsmanship comes with a price, however; The Reliant is $9,995.00 and Serenity will set you back $7,495.00. For more detailed information on these two ships, and the other QMx releases, head over to their website.
Cosplay is huge at comic conventions and it only seems to be growing in popularity. This year’s New York Comic Con was no exception, with excellent representations of popular characters such as Elsa from Disney’s Frozen alongside superheroes like Black Widow, Spider-Man, and Star-Lord.
The Diamond Select and Previews booths at Comic Con had a lot of excellent toys on display, some available now and some on their way soon.
The Minimates displays at Diamond included new Mass Effect and Aliens figures along with Dragon Age, Grimm Fairytales from Zenescope, Buck Rogers, and all of the new X-Men releases. There were new reveals and announcements during the Minimates panel on Saturday and we’ll be looking to bring you more info on that when Friend of the Holocron, Steve, has a chance to type up his notes.
The new Marvel Select Cable figure turned out well as did Carnage and the Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back figures. Who doesn’t want a Cocknocker figure? Check out the booth photos below.
Kotobukiya has two new Star Wars ARTFX+ 2-packs on the way, including Luke and Leia, which were being shown off in their booth this past weekend. They also had their new sandwich and egg shapers alongside their Yoda and Mace Windu chopsticks. We were hoping for a look at the announced female Stormtrooper bishoujo but no luck this time around.
Fans of Marvel comics and movies were treated to the new She Hulk bishoujo statue and artwork for the upcoming Wasp. DC was represented by a new Batwoman and Zatanna. Avengers and Justice League were both well represented on the super hero side of Koto’s display as well.
Tekken and Street Fighter were just two of the video game franchises represented alongside Halo. Three of the statues we were most impressed with were from Attack on Titan.
