Sunday 7/26 140,000 people, 4.5 days, 1 convention – it all comes down to this. The morning was spent re-orchestrating all of the previous buys into a somewhat manageable series of bags, you see typically we bring down large boxes to fill up but all of box army fell in battle against Recycle-Or several months […]
Marvel Legends close 1 by Carls Life At their Marvel SDCC panel, Hasbro said that 6″ Marvel Legends would be returning “in full force” in 2012. I started to wonder why that would be, given how strongly they’ve been pushing Marvel Universe, and I’m wondering if it’s the success of DCUC that has them reconsidering.
A number of new MOTUC bios popped up in the course of SDCC. I’ll eventually discuss them at length in my bio discussion posts. (I actually started to write some brief responses to some of these, but since they were running longer than half my actual bio discussion posts, I decided to just save them […]
Vincent van Gogh vs. V.I.N.CENT (205/365) by JD Hancock
Saturday 7/25 A very long day. Began with us futile-y trying to get in to Hall H for the Warner Bros panel. After realizing how pointless that was it was back to the dealer floor. Panels, especially big name panels or panels otherwise in one of the big room, are really hard to get into […]

Friday 7/23 What does one do on Day 2 when the vast majority of exclusive figures on their list were acquired on Day 1? Stroll and go to Panels! And pick up the voucher pre-sale stuff from Matty, of course (incredibly painless and easy – Hasbro, et al, should take note and do the same!).
No doubt a lot of casual MOTU fans are wondering where the heck “Preternia Disguise He-Man” comes from. The answer is the vintage minicomic “The Powers of Grayskull – The Legend Begins” (inked by Bruce “DC Animated Universe” Timm and lettered by Stan “Usagi Yojimbo” Sakai). I have to say, I think this is one […]

Some highlights from the panel: DCIH will focus on Green Lantern in 2011 There will be two DCUC-style waves of Green Lantern Classics, of six figures each, with a CnC for each wave Some GLC figures will have […]
