COMETDEBRIS ACE ROBO Full Color Version First Look!

Cometdebris has posted a couple pictures of the new upcoming full color version of ACE ROBO! This groovy retro-style Robo will be red, black & silver. Based off of the Red Glitter version, the vinyl figure will measure almost 7 inches tall and have 3 points of articulation. The Red Glitter version retailed for $60, so hopefully the color version will be in the same ballpark. But it will be worth it if it's more dough! Details will be announced soon about pre-ordering the color Ace Robo. We do know that the pre-order will take place in June 2013. For future details, please go to cometdebris.com or follow Comitdebris via Instagram

Hello Heroes,

You know that one of my favourite conventions to go to is the annual Power-con event. Held in the Los Angeles area, it is a celebration of He-man, She-ra, Thundercats and now Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I have gone both of the previous years and look forward to going again this year.

It has been announced on the Power-con website that some really cool new show shirts are now available for pre-order. The limited edition T-shirts feature some of the very recognizable iconic characters from Masters of the Universe, Princess of Power, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Thundercats in semi-silhouette.

There are loads to choose from, have a look:

Don't put it off though, last year they had a really cool She-ra one that I wanted to get but missed out on it! So which one do you plan on getting? Let me know by leaving a comment below.

As for Powercon 2013, I'll be there! I don't know which character I'll cosplay as...I've done She-ra and Princess Adora in the past. So it'll be a surprise! In the meantime, have a look back at my 2012 video:

Hello Heroes,

I love this statue. From Electric Tiki and Sideshow Toys comes classic sexy horror icon Vampirella. Designed by Tracy Mark Lee of Electric Tiki this stylized version of her is awesome. Really sexy, really cute, I need to add this to my collection. I also love Butchie the Bat, who is perched on her arm. The Vampirella statue stands at 10.5 inches tall and is $159.99. How about some pictures:

Vampirella is available now for pre-order. Unfortunately she does not come out until January 2014. Oh man. To be fair, this looks well worth the wait. I really like this style from Electric Tiki and Tracy Lee Mark. Brilliant work. There are Tooned Up versions of The Munsters, Elvira and more.

I have the Tooned Up Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, which are some of my favourite pieces in my collection.

Pre-order your Vampirella Tooned Up statue right here from Sideshow Toys!

Stay Super!

VIDEO: New 3 Minute Trailer For Marvel's Upcoming Television Series - Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

This new three minute trailer for the upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is actually pretty happening. I'll be the first to admit that I wasn't on board with this idea. I didn't like the little mini-movie Item 47 and this initially felt derivative of the Marvel Cinematic U, because you know you're not going to see any of the stars. So, I think that's why I wasn't buying into it. But having watched this trailer, I'm a little more receptive. I'm not sold on it just yet, but we'll see.

In this trailer, while we do see some of the same clips we've seen before, we do get a little more. Check it out:


Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is coming to the ABC network this September.

Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films, as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. Coulson's team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage; Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), expert pilot and martial artist; Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), brilliant engineer; and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker, Skye (Chloe Bennet).

I just wrote about the upcoming Marvel animated series Avengers Assemble that is coming to Disney XD this summer and now I have more cool news about the show. Here are 3 promo clips promoting the series. We see everyone in action - Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widwow, Falcon and Hawkeye. Villian wise - I saw Modok and what looked like the Red Skull in Iron Man's armor.

All are very short and don't give too much away, however one line did stand out - "We had our reasons for disbanding the Avengers..." Makes me wonder if this is a reference to Avengers: The Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the previous animated series, or the Avengers movie.

Check out the clips:






As noted, Disney XD is giving viewers a sneak hour long preview next week, May 26th with the series launched in July.

You going to watch this show? Let me know what you think by leaving a comment.

After watching the latest trailer for The Wolverine, I gotta admit this is really looking good. The X-film franchise is really on an upswing and I dig it. Directed by James Mangold and starring Hugh Jackman as The Wolverine is set to open July 26th, 2013.

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
