Mike,

Thanks for suffering through the lack of air conditioning for all of us poor sods that cannot be there. We feel your pain!

Many, MANY thanks for the preliminary information...

Have a lot of fun! :wink:

Good heavens...it's only setup and it already sounds amazing.

SDCC 2007 Preview Night Report

I'm afraid there's really not much to report, gang. Both Hasbro and Mattel are waiting for their panels for big reveals.

Still, there's a little news:

Hasbro had some new superhero squad stuff. Click on the thumbnails for bigger pics:

And some new Icons:

In DC Direct news:

Everything Daniel already told you. Plus, it's doubtful there'll be a second wave of JSA. The first assortment didn't sell that well. Still, DCD loves the JSA and they're trying to come up with ways to make it feasible. They may do an Alex Ross JSA line, for example.

The 13" Green Arrow will be on display Friday (Maybe. They're not sure which day yet). No word yet on whether it's contemporary or classic.

Finally, it appears that four figure waves will be the norm from now on. Retailers seem to prefer it that way.

Here's the poster in the Mattel booth that I was telling you about:

Image

And here's the life-sized "Well of Souls" display in the Hasbro booth:

Lots more to come! This is just preview night. The show hasn't even officially started yet. Many more pics, much more news. Stand by.

Mike
(Look at that time! I gotta get up again in four hours! 'night!)

Thanks Mike! :D

Bummed about the DCD JSA news...I figured we'd at least get a wave 2 with Stargirl, Atom Smasher, etc. BAH!

I heard Preview Night was insane. My buddy Aaron and I talked a couple times and he told me some areas were just chaos - there was almost a huge fight at the Gentle Giant booth over the exclusives, with dealers pushing in the line and yelling. The Hasbro gold-headed Destro was already sold out of the Wednesday allotment when he got there. The line for the Alternators Rodimus was close to an hour long, and was limited to 3 per person and he was told that they'd be 1-per every day of the show - and this is Preview Night! Crazy.

SDCC 2007 - Day 2

The Hasbro Star Wars panel and the the Mattel DC Universe panel go head to head later today!

Cannot wait!

Who will be added to the JLU line?
What direction will DCSH take now that Mattel has the broader DCU license?
I cannot wait to find out.
