Is traveling to Chicago, IL this month to attend Star Wars Celebration April 11-15, and they’re bringing two popular Clone Wars characters – Hera Syndulla and Darth Maul – as this year’s exclusive offerings!

The captain and heart of the Ghost crew, Hera Syndulla was a gifted pilot and leader. While Hera was a strong commander – and especially adept at dogfighting with TIE fighters – she was also warm and nurturing. The Twi’lek could bring out the best in her team, which consisted of very different personalities, making them believe in themselves, each other, and their struggle against the Empire. Hera will be made available as a 1:6 scale resin bust, for a price of $120.00.

A deadly, agile Sith Lord trained by the evil Darth Sidious, Darth Maul was a formidable warrior and scheming mastermind. He wielded an intimidating double-bladed lightsaber and fought with a menacing ferocity. Though he fell in battle against Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Zabrak from Dathomir would prove to be much harder to destroy than originally believed. Darth Maul will be depicted with his Force-constructed spider legs in a 1:8 scale Collector’s Gallery statue, available for $200.00.

 

Star Wars Premier Guild members will be able to pre-order the busts beginning March 25. All others can come by the Diamond Select Toys/Gentle Giant Ltd. booth between April 11 and 15th! See you in Chicago!

AIRBOY RETURNS AFTER 30 YEARS! http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/airboy-returns-after-30-years/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/airboy-returns-after-30-years/#respond Fri, 22 Mar 2019 14:00:47 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=182226

Very soon, I will be launching an IndieGoGo campaign to publish AIRBOY #51.  AIRBOY was originally created in the 1940s, then brought back during the 1980s by Chuck Dixon at Eclipse Comics.  Dixon wrote all 50 issues in that epic run, with the final issue ending in a major cliffhanger!  Well, 30 years later, Dixon returns to continue the story of AIRBOY in issue 51, right where he left off in issue 50.  He is joined by rising stars Brent McKee (pencils and inks) and Jok (colors and letters), who will handle the interior art.  And in celebration of AIRBOY’s return to comics, I have commissioned EIGHT brand new variant covers by Andrew MacLean, Dalibor Talajic, Don Perlin, Emma Kubert, Graham Nolan, Jok, Matt Kindt, and Paul Gulacy.  All variant covers, and three finished interior pages, can be seen below.

 

IF YOU WANT TO GET ON THE LIST FOR A SHOT AT “SECRET PERKS” WHICH WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST 24 HOURS OF THE INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN (including comics, variants, signed comics, sketches, original interior art, and original cover art), PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO: airboycomic@gmail.com

We hope you will join us on an incredible journey to bring back this legendary character!

Best,

Drew Ford

Flaunt Your Fronds in Palm Trees—Coming Soon! http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/flaunt-your-fronds-in-palm-trees-coming-soon/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/flaunt-your-fronds-in-palm-trees-coming-soon/#respond Fri, 22 Mar 2019 13:00:06 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=182222 Hillside, NJ – March 19, 2019 – WizKids is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Palm Trees, its new dexterity game of lush leaves and fabulous fronds!

In this dexterity game of quite literal “hand management,” players compete to grow the most verdant trees on a tropical island. To start, players will place their elbows on the table, arms straight up, forming the trunk of their palm tree.  Each player holds a number of cards, representing fronds and coconuts, in their hand. Each card indicates the way in which the player must add it to their hand. Frond cards are simpler, while coconut cards tend to have more difficult rules players must follow.

Each turn, a player will select one of three available cards on the table to have an opponent add to their tree. Each card has a rule on how it must be held: frond cards are simpler, while coconut cards have more difficult rules. Some cards require a player to hold them between two specific fingers, or potentially between their fingers and their palm. When a card is added to a player’s palm tree, they must continue to follow the rules indicated on all the other cards in their hand. Breaking any of these rules would be considered dropping a card, which ends the game.

If the game ends with a dropped card, the player who dropped the card will not score any points for that game. The game also ends when all cards have been placed in all trees. When the game ends, players add up the points on each of the cards in their respective hands, and the player with the most points wins!

The game can also be played teams of two, with one player acting as the tree while the other adds the fronds and coconuts. In this alternate way of playing, each team simultaneously builds their tree instead of taking turns. The game ends as normal. For extra fun, 6 tree trunk tattoo sleeves have been included with the game—these can be worn by players for extra immersion into the mind of an island tree. Palm Trees will release in June 2019, so be sure to preorder at your Friendly Local Game Store or online today!

Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace – 1/6th scale Qui-Gon Jinn Collectible Figure from @HotToys http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/star-wars-episode-i-the-phantom-menace-1-6th-scale-qui-gon-jinn-collectible-figure-from-hottoys/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/star-wars-episode-i-the-phantom-menace-1-6th-scale-qui-gon-jinn-collectible-figure-from-hottoys/#respond Fri, 22 Mar 2019 10:13:41 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=182294

A venerable if maverick Jedi Master, Qui-Gon Jinn was a student of the living Force. Qui-Gon lived for the moment, espousing a philosophy of “feel, don’t think — use your instincts.” On Tatooine, Qui-Gon discovered a young slave boy named Anakin Skywalker who was strong in the Force. Sensing the boy’s potential, Qui-Gon liberated Anakin from slavery. The Jedi Master presented Anakin to the Jedi Council, but they deemed the boy too old to begin training and dangerously full of fear and anger. They refused to allow Qui-Gon to train Anakin, but rescinded their decision to fulfill Qui-Gon’s dying wish.

Today, Hot Toys is very excited to introduce the new 1/6th scale collectible figure of Qui-Gon Jinn from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace!

Skillfully crafted based on the appearance of Qui-Gon Jinn in the film, this 1/6th scale collectible figure features a newly developed head sculpt, finely tailored Jedi robe and tunic, a desert poncho, a LED light-up lightsaber, a Comlink, a grappling hook, a hologram projector with interchangeable holograms, and a themed figure base!

Battle the dark side with Jedi Master Qui-Gon in your Star Wars collection!

Lake Forest, CA — March 20, 2019 — Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of tabletop games, trading cards, and physical and digital collectibles, today announced that it will sell products in all categories and offer numerous exclusives at WonderCon Anaheim, March 29-31 at the Anaheim Convention Center. The annual show brings together exhibitors, retailers, and fans in a celebration of comic books, films, TV, and other forms of popular culture.

At Booth #1337, Cryptozoic will sell four exclusive vinyl figures from popular lines like DC Bombshells, CryptkinsTM, and DC TeekeezTM: Golden Goddess Classic Harley Quinn, Blackfire, Pestilence, and Flashpoint Batman. The company will also unveil its CZXTM super premium products for the first time anywhere with Promo Cards for two upcoming trading card sets—CZX Outlander and CZX Super Heroes & Super-Villains—and the soon-to-be-released CZX Wonder Woman: Princess of Wonder Woman Statue. In addition, Cryptozoic will offer exclusive Rick and Morty Trading Cards Season 2: Metallic Cards and a Promo Card for its upcoming Steven Universe Trading Cards set. Finally, attendees can preview two forthcoming games that use Cryptozoic’s new Gryphon card game engine: Challenge of the Superfriends Card Game and Rick and Morty: Looks Who’s Purging Now Card Game.

“Cryptozoic calls Orange County home, so we’re always extra motivated to make WonderCon a special event for fans, and this year we’ve taken it to a new level,” said John Sepenuk, CEO of Cryptozoic. “Our booth will have an incredible array of exclusive collectible and trading card products, as well as our amazing library of currently available and upcoming games. As a special treat for those who attend, we’ll be sharing the first glimpse of our CZX super premium products.”

Cryptozoic’s exclusive figures will all be made available via online presales before WonderCon. Those who buy the figures that way will be able to pick them up at the booth. Everyone else at the show can purchase these collectibles while supplies last. The limited figures are:

Golden Goddess Classic Harley Quinn: This is a variant of the regular 7-inch vinyl figure that pays tribute to Harley’s origins by depicting her in her classic jester costume. Like the previous releases in Cryptozoic’s popular Golden Goddess series, it sports a stunning gold-and-white design inspired by classical Greek sculpture. The figure comes packaged in Cryptozoic’s signature window box, each of which is individually numbered from 1 to 250. It will sell for $40.

Blackfire (DC Lil Bombshells: Series 3): This is a variant of the Starfire vinyl figure from Cryptozoic’s retro-style DC Lil Bombshells: Series 3 line, which showcases DC’s favorite female characters (and a few male ones). This figure features a black hat, purple hair, pink eyes, and a dark costume to differentiate the evil Blackfire from her heroic sister, Starfire. Each figure is individually numbered (from 1 to 300) on the bottom and includes Blackfire’s logo on the base. The 2.75-inch collectible comes packaged in Cryptozoic’s signature, collectible tin with a foil sticker marking it as a “WonderCon exclusive.” Each figure will sell for $25.

Pestilence (CryptkinsTM: Series 2): This is a variant of the Pegasus Cryptkins: Series 2 vinyl figure, part of Cryptozoic’s original IP featuring creatures that have long been the subject of folklore and tabloid headlines. This figure is the first from the Four Cryptkins of the Apocalypse variant series, which features characters that seem, at first glance, to be harbingers of doom. It sports green paint, spots, and other markings of disease. The 2.25-inch collectible comes packaged in a miniature crate with a foil sticker marking it as “Exclusive Species.” Only 300 figures exist, with each selling for $15.

Flashpoint Batman (DC TeekeezTM): This is a variant of the Batman DC Teekeez vinyl figure, part of Cryptozoic’s collectibles line that is inspired by tiki culture and features iconic DC characters. This version of the figure is painted gray with red accents as a nod to the Batman in DC’s Flashpoint comic storyline, in which Thomas Wayne becomes the Caped Crusader instead of his son Bruce. The 2.625-inch collectible has a distinctive wood-carved aesthetic and comes packaged in Cryptozoic’s signature window box with a foil sticker marking it as a WonderCon exclusive. Like all DC Teekeez, it is stackable. Only 300 figures have been produced, with each selling for $15.

 

In addition, Cryptozoic will sell exclusive cards from its latest Rick and Morty trading card set:

Rick and Morty Trading Cards Season 2: Metallic Cards: These cards are designed to look like business cards belonging to characters featured in Cryptozoic’s latest Rick and Morty trading card set. The three WonderCon-exclusive cards are Morty Smith (M7), the President of the United States (M8), and Unity (M9). Only 250 of each one were produced. Printed on high quality metal, each limited edition card retails for $10.

Fans can also collect Promo Cards for several upcoming products: the super premium CZX trading card sets CZX Outlander and CZX Super Heroes & Super-Villains (both P1), the high-end CZX Wonder Woman: Princess of Themyscira Statue (AW1), and Steven Universe Trading Cards (P5).

Finally, Cryptozoic will preview two new games that utilize its brand new Gryphon Engine and will be available in April:
Gryphon Engine
Challenge of the Superfriends Card Game: Based on the classic TV series, this game uses Cryptozoic’s new Gryphon card game engine for fast-paced, easy-to-learn gameplay for 2-4 players. Taking on the roles of Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Batman and Robin, all players simultaneously reveal their Power Cards to call forth allies or Super Powers that can change the course of the battle against the Legion of Doom.
Challenge of the Superfriends Card Game
Gryphon Engine
Rick and Morty: Look Who’s Purging Now Card Game: Based on the popular episode of the TV show, this game utilizes Cryptozoic’s new Gryphon card game engine to deliver gameplay that unfolds at lightning speed and is easy to learn. It features simultaneous play, as 2 to 4 players become Rick, Morty, and others and play their Weapon Cards at the same time to rack up kills during the annual Festival.
Rick and Morty: Looks Who’s Purging Now Card Game

Written by Sina Grace (Iceman) with art by Egle Bartolini (Disney Princess Comics), this 72-page softcover brings ghoulish delights not only to middle grade readers (the 8-12 age range), but to each of our inner children as it revisits all our favorite happy haunts—the ghost host, Madame Leota, the singing busts, the hitchhiking ghosts, and many more!

Sina Grace says, “As someone who solemnly swears to have boarded a Doombuggy every Disneyland visit, I am utterly thrilled to join the 999 happy haunts with a story full of laughs, gasps, and a few surprises! The Haunted Mansion is one of the most iconic attractions in all of Disneyland, and I am so honored to be writing a tale commemorating its historic 50th anniversary.”
