Still More Comic-Con Exclusives

  • Apparently Hasbro still had one more exclusive to reveal and it's truly truly outrageous. It's Hollywood Jem from Jem and the Holograms. A revival of Jem is long overdue and it looks like it's kicking off at this year's Comic-Con. The price is also truly outrageous at $125. I guess that means the quality of this doll is closer to Tonner than Barbie.

  • Mezco Toys' exclusives feature the usual assembly of Living Dead Dolls and Mez-Its, one of which is a 20" Batman Mez-Itz. There's also an Earthworm Jim figure with a metallic finish and a smiling headsculpt, which I prefer over the angry headsculpt of the regular release. Mezco also has a Thundercats glow-in-the-dark 14" Mumm-Ra. He comes with a figure of Mumm-Ra in his mummy form. Now that is an awesome package.

  • Continuing the Thundercats news, the Thundercats Facebook page has been revealing new exclusives this week, including a ThunderTank statue from Icon Heroes and the first look at Thundercats Minimates. Minimate Jaga and Mumm-Ra in his mummy form, his second exclusive this year, will be sold at the Action Figure XPress booth.

  • Underground Toys announced on their Doctor Who exclusive on their Twitter page. They'll be selling a two-pack of Winston Churchill and a tea serving Ironside Dalek from the Series 5 episode "Victory of the Daleks". Sadly there's no images yet of Churchill's action figure. (There's a phrase I never thought I'd type.)

  • Once again Toys R Us will be selling some of their exclusives at Comic-Con as reported by USA Today. From Jazwares, TRU will have an Adventure Time Finn & Fiona mini-figure 2-pack and Mordecai the very first toy from Regular Show. Finn and Fiona are wearing Con badges and Mordecai is wearing a Con t-shirt. From Playmates, Toys R Us will have 10" figures of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from the new Nickelodeon series. I'm sure there are even more TRU exclusives yet to be announced. Based on previous years I think it's a good bet that one of them will be the new Masterpiece Optimus Prime with trailer.

  • I also seem to recall Toys R Us selling McFarlane Halo exclusives in the past. That might explain this Halo 4 Master Chief figure that has yet to be officially announced.

  • Shifting gears a bit from Con exclusives to retail exclusives, Sandtroopers has a first look at the new Star Wars Vintage Collection three packs coming to Target. They have a photo of the cardback with pictures of the whole assortment including a brand new Takeel a.k.a. Snaggletooth (the short red one). I think this is the first time they put an all new figure into one of these sets. He comes in the Villain set with Boba Fett and a Tusken Raider. I'm not sure Snaggletooth is a villain, but that's not half as weird as the "Android" set with Chewie, Threepio and Artoo.
