It’s time for Five Links You Need to Know About. During the week, we see all sorts of cool or exciting things and we share those links here with our readers every Friday…
DC Classics First Looks @ The Fwoosh and AFI – It was a big week for DC Classics collectors. In addition to the release of the 5pk and some first sightings of Wave 9, AFI and the Fwoosh offered first looks at two future waves of DC Classics. Check out both sites for great turnarounds, figure comparisons, and closeups. Also, be aware – even if we’re just seeing DCUC9 hitting retail, these first looks don’t preceed the figures by that much. It’s looking to be an expensive run for DCUC in the next few weeks! Check out the pictures with the links below:
Hot Toys Dark Knight Tumbler @ MWCToys – A lot of times, Michael Crawford’s reviews are helpful to show what toys we should be getting or should avoid. Other times, his reviews help us get a sneak peak at something that is on it’s way already. But then there are times like these… Michael has the Hot Toys Tumbler in 1/6th scale – yeah, drink that in for a minute, a 1/6th scale version of that massive Batmobile – up for review. Oh, and it’s awesome. And, be warned, Michael’s in-depth review will make you start to think it’s “only” $400…
CustomCon 23 @ JoeAcevedo.com – I love CustomCons and this Summer’s was no different. It was hard to pick favorites, but I really enjoyed the Matrix Minimates and the Guardians of the Galaxy customs. There’s a great custom wave of Marvel Legends with a BAF Goliath. A ton of original characters Pocket Heroes. Some modern Thundercats. I could go on and on… so it’s best to just explore the customs for yourself! And TheFwoosh has let us know they’ll be hosting CustomCon 24 this Winter!
Tri-Klops Review @ ActionFigurePics.Com – They’ll be a flood of Tri-Klops reviews in the coming days (heck, even we’ll have one!), but AFP has a great one up right now! Check it out for some great shots of Tri-Klops and know what to expect when yours arrives.
LeVar Burton Talks Black Lightning – DCCollector.Com – I really like Black Lightning. I really like Levar Burton too (he’s even fun to follow on Twitter). That is the voice of Black Lightning in the upcoming Public Enemies animated feature is pretty sweet. Even better, DCCollector.com has an interview with him where he talks about voicing the role, what he thinks about comics, and he picks between Batman & Superman. Check it out!
