ThunderCats Lion-O Classic Figure: This is the
same 8" Lion-O that will be sold at retail, but better. The SDCC Lion-O has a
metallic finish on his armor, shiny chrome weapons, the Sword of Omens in both
short and long forms, claw shied, and a stand to hold the sword and shield.
This is a must-buy. I was already planning on getting the regular Lion-O at
retail, but getting this one is a bit cooler. Larry Kenny, the voice of Lion-O,
will also be signing the figure at the Entertainment Earth booth Friday July
22nd from 5-7pm.
Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 Minimates set: This
set includes Morrigan, Hulk, Zero, and Iron Man in Player-2 colors, which means
Hulk is Red Hulk, Iron Man is in Stealth Armor, Zero looks more like Mega Man,
and Morrigan is, well, just wearing Player-2 colors. This will go nicely with the
MVC3 Minimates set at SDCC.
Halo 10th Anniversary Platinum Master Chief: This
is the same McFarlane Toys Master Chief figure that's been sold over and over, but this time
the Chief is in an all shiny platinum color. I'm not one for all gold or all
platinum-colored figures, but I'll probably get it anyways. In addition, Todd
McFarlane will be signing the figure (and possibly another item of your choice)
at the Entertainment Earth booth on Thursday July 21st from 10-11:30am.
Flocked Sonic the Hedgehog: I'm not into the
Sonic figures at all, however, this 7" flocked Sonic looks pretty amazing. The
flocking really makes it stand out and just looks so much better than the regular
Sonic figure. I
may need to get this.
Lightning Fury Raiden: This is basically a clear
version of the Raiden figure from Jazwares upcoming Mortal Kombat line, but it
also glows-in-the-dark. Sold. I just wish his hat was pointy like it's supposed
Transformers Masterpiece Rodimus Prime: Okay, the
packaging says it's Rodimus Prime and that he can transform into his Winnebago
mode, but I don't see where the parts for the Winnebago are in the package. I
think it's actually Rodimus Prime without the Winnebago, so just Hot Rod. Like
the Masterpiece Grimlock from last year, this will debut at SDCC and then be
sold at Toys 'R' Us stores at a later date.
Star Wars Republic Commando set: If you missed
these the first time around, here's a second chance to get the crew from the
Republic Commando game, plus a Geonosian Warrior. I already have these, but this
is good for anyone who didn't get them before, or wants another set.
