It’s that time again at the San Diego Comic-Con to reveal the new and exciting collectibles. Let’s get right into it and talk about the Infinity Gauntlet figure set by Hasbro, I mean you get Nebula, Starfox, Thanos and his Mistress Death. The best part of this Beautiful masterpiece set is the actual Infinity Gauntlet itself, this is every fan boys dream to have in there collection. This wearable gauntlet rubs at a price range of $79.99, but forget about paying bills, the sheer enjoyment of waking up everyday seeing this on your mantle is priceless.
Next on this list is Funko, they have been putting out some amazing vinyl figures for some years now and I have to say well down this company. If your a fan of the walking dead series then you will love what they have in store for you, the Hershel Greene with detachable head. Oh yeah, I was geeking out when I seen this, I can definitely say Hershel will be in my collection. With a running price of $14.99, your pocketbooks won’t be broken and your parents or significant other won’t be as mad….until they see the other cool stuff that’s coming out. Like the Ghostbusters Pop! Venkman and Slimer Metallic 2-Pack, if you’re fan of Ghostbusters like I am, and have seen the countless collectibles in the past, this will just make you stand up and beg for buttermilk. Of course I use movie quotes in regular conversation.
The ultimate collectible I viewed, is the something that made me wet my pants instantly….a limited edition Mighty Morphin Power Ranger Legacy Dragon Dagger, I screamed in pure nerd ecstasy. This Dagger is 24 karat gold platting with die-cast metal parts, along with a beautiful box case that comes with it to hold it in. The killer part will just push you over the edge, this piece plays the music that summons the original Green Ranger’s Dragonzord, how freaking cool is that. So let’s talk specs on this for minute, there were only a 1,000 pieces made exclusively for the Bandai America booth at the San Diego Comic-Con, with a price at $150.00 dollars you can bet that all the care in the world will go out the window once you buy this item…besides who cares what people think, you are now a proud owner of a Dragon Dagger, now that is just epic.
For all you DC fans, SDCC has something special for you, if you’re familiar with Kotobukiya and their work, then these collectible is up your alley. The First Appearance Batman by Bob Kane Limited Edition ARTFX+ Statue, this statue is 1/10th in scale and includes a magnetic display base for effortless display options. I really like how this statue is crafted, the craftsmanship was defiantly put in good hand’s by artist Atelier Bamboo. With an asking price of $39.99, this collectible is something you can cherish for years to come. Since were on the subject with Kotobukiya another figure was announced the Classic X-Men Era Psylocke SDCC Exclusive Bishoujo Statue. This figure is just sleek and all around cool, I love how artist Takaboku Busujima crafted Psylocke and added so much detail in the creases of her ankles, wrist, and feet. The price of this statue is $64.99, not bad but it’s well worth it in the long run.
Let’s not forget about the elephant in the room, with the up coming feature film Guardians of the Galaxy, SDCC has brought out collectables to go with the film. These figures are so amazing, they are detailed and crafted very well…I really want that Star Lord piece by the way. I haven’t seen a price range for these characters yet, but who cares, SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY! Another Marvel collectable I seen was the Iron Man Hall of Armors set, this thing is huge, just google and watch your mouth drool over this awesome set. Can’t you tell I am a total culture junkie and I can’t get enough of this stuff. I haven’t seen a price range on it, and I assume it will end in the hundreds, trust me, my piggy bank may get cracked open for such a great item like this one..whew simmer down, got myself all worked up.
There was also a statue made in homage to iconic actor Christopher Reeve’s Superman. This statue looks exactly like Christopher Reeve in every way, from the hair and jaw structure to his body and costume design, this is such an awesome way to be immortalized and fans can remember their version of Superman forever. If you want more of SDCC exclusive collectibles just Google stuff, it’s the internet. If you’ve got the cash to spend on them, then you’ll find many of them on eBay (most likely marked up, but they’re there!)
