Hascon is here folks and first impressions are crucial. From what I see this looks to be fun! While we could not make it do to other obligations, our friends over at Jedi Temple Archives are there in full force! Thus weekend should over us a better glimpse into the future of the Star Wars Vintage Collection, Transformers, Marvel and so much more! Yes I singled out the Vintage Collection because that's what Im excited for the most. GI Joe is the step-child so I expect nothing from that line but the others should yield some fruit.
Mezco has announced a new The One:12 Collective Fall Exclusive and it's non other than the Red Skull! This figure will sport his iconic classic green jumpsuit as worn during his first encounter with Captain America. This one you will want to snag and he is up for order right now! If you miss this then NYCC will be the only other place to secure this figure.
Marvel has revealed their annual exclusive 6″ Marvel Legends figure for their 2018 Marvel Unlimited Digital Comic Book Subscription service. This year the figure will be of Tony Stark. This figure is a must have and for the price, why not go for it!
Sorry folks for the lack of updates, I know my schedule is full with shows right now but we will get things caught up soon! Up first is an update for Mezco and their lovely One 12 Collective Spider-Man Homecoming figure! As I mentioned many times, these are the figures you want. If you want high end then here you go! Also on a side note, we know releases are behind but look for some to hit soon like Harley, Deadpool and more. Hopefully they will not all hit at the same time but from what I was told, they should not. Now lets look at this Spider-Man figure in some detail!
This week is a huge folks. Tons of releases and plenty of books to snag. I sure hope you all went for the Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe again as the variants are hot. The regular cover is not doing so bad on it's own so don't count that one out just yet. The book was a fun read and this series should be a solid hit. Not much else has moved on the market with the new releases but if you manage to snag a 3rd print of Batman #24 I would do it.
Like any large convention, HeroesCon has a number of panels with the various attending guests talking about a number of subjects pertaining to the convention. In past years I haven't attended as many of the panels as I felt I should have so this year I made an effort to correct that. The following is a rundown of the panels I saw and why you should make an effort to attend them while at HeroesCon.
Bleeding Cool reported on Friday that Marvel Comics had fired X-Men editor Daniel Ketchum. All things being connected in some small way, this firing could be a sign of real problems at Marvel, as the publisher reels from some very noticeable problems in the past few months.
Occasionally, I just trip across a cover while browsing the Internet, and I remember it vaguely from my childhood. Magik, the Storm and Illyana Rasputin mini-series from 1984, fills in the space between panels of Uncanny X-Men #160. In that issue, the X-Men, and Colossus's little sister Illyana are transported to the other-dimensional domain of Belasco, a one-armed sorcerer that had previously faced off against Ka-Zar and Shanna, the She-Devil. Near the end, as the X-Men are escaping, Belasco takes Illyana from their grasp. For a brief second, Kitty Pryde loses her grip on Illyana, but regains it, only to pull her through after she's been in Belasco's realm for several years. Later on, Illyana would exhibit mutant abilities to travel through space and time using "discs" similar to those that randomly appeared in Belasco's realm. She also began using magical abilities and summoning a "soul-sword" that went from looking like a lightsaber to a traditional, albeit glowing sword. This series explained what happened in that span of time.
