Apologies for the long delay in blog posts but I'm back folks so strap in and read on for the reveal of D's Fantastic Toys first giveaway! The prize drawing will go down August 24th for anyone who has purchased an item between my shops opening in June to the drawing date in August. I'll also give you my top 10 exclusives for the upcoming San Diego Comic Con 2018 (One of them is the giveaway item!), and I'd be remiss to not cover Mezco's latest item up for pre-order, the One:12 Collective Hela from the movie Thor Ragnarok.
D's SDCC Top 10 Exclusives
10. FYE Exclusive XXRAY Reptar: Man if you haven't checked out FYE's XXRAY line you're missing out. This line is sculpted with half of the body shown in X-ray style. This year's SDCC offerings include an assortment of Spongebob characters, and Superman man of steel edition but this is my favorite offering from this year as it brings me back to one of my childhood favorites the Rugrats. This is a super detailed and super unique 8'' vinyl figure designed by FYE artist Jason Freeny. This one is going to cost you $129.99 which is a pretty penny but for the exclusivity and the amount of detail in these things, totally worth it.
9. Mattel exclusive Hot Wheels DC Superman Action Comics #1: Look I can't hide the fact that I'm a DC guy, and this is an iconic piece for any Superman or DC fan, and a must have for hot wheel collectors. The presentation of this exclusive is an absolutely stunning recreation of the 1938 comic book. It will cost you $20 but you have to be at the con to have a chance at this item that is sure to be a hit.
8. Icon Heroes exclusive DC Comics Batman Arkham Knight Bat-Signal Light Up Polystone Statue: Who doesn't want their own working bat-signal? This one was way to cool to leave off my list. This exclusive is hand sculpted, numbered, and comes with a certificate of authenticity. It is limited to 250 pieces and will cost $150. This item will be available at the Icon Heroes booth at SDCC.
7. Beast Kingdom exclusive Dynamic 8ction Heroes DAH-00113SP Justice League Superman Special Color: Beast Kingdom is bringing some serious heat with them to SDCC this year. With offerings from Batman, Wonder Woman, Star Wars, Deadpool, Iron Man, The Incredibles, and my favorite for this year Superman. This figure is 1/9 scale with 24 points of movement, comes with 6 interchangable hands, and is hand painted. The paint apps on this is what makes this particular figure stand out to me. The black is striking and the silver lines are perfection. This version of Superman with these colors is what I want to see in the next DCEU film. This exclusive is limited to 150 sets and retails for $50.
6. Hasbro exclusive Marvel Legends Series Red Skull Figure and Electronic Tesseract: I'm a sucker for pretty packaging, and I'm a sucker for Red Skull, add a light up Tesseract into the mix and you have my heart Hasbro. While not the best looking Red Skull figure out there (I prefer Mezco's take), the total package of this exclusive is what has me sold. This item will be sold at the Hasbro booth but if your not able to attend you may be able to pick it up at their online shop on August 13th. I know I'll be trying my luck. It retails for $59.99.
