dc meets thomas

I’m doubly amused about this because Thomas the Tank Engine is featured in an add for Marvel’s Ant-Man at the moment, but this SDCC Exclusive Thomas & Friends Super Friends Minis DC mashup set is wild.

I dunno, what do you think?

DC Super Hero Girls

Good news for fans that have been frustrated with the state of female superheroes in movies and TV. DC and Warner Bros. have announced the new “DC Super Hero Girls” initiative targeted to an audience of girls ages 6-12. It’s going to include everything from TV specials to toys with a focus on the early years of favorite female DC characters like like Wonder Woman, Batgirl and Harley Quinn.

The call for more female superhero representation in toy lines and entertainment has been growing and this is a way for girls to feel like they’re included in a genre that, for the most part, caters to boys.

I mean, I’d rather there wasn’t a need to divide these things along gender lines. For many female fans, the products made “for boys” are just fine. However, this product line could help other girls jump in who wouldn’t have otherwise.

So kudos to you DC and Warner Bros. I’m impressed.

Check out the full press release after the break.

Here’s a cool new collectible for you Arrow fans. The Arrow bookend stands approximately 9-inches tall and is made of high quality polystone, which makes him as much of a statue as a book end and, let’s be honest, is probably the closest most of us will ever come to having Amell in our homes.

There were a lot of reveals during Toy Fair and they were definitely exciting, but the products I was clutching my wallet over were the new items from Funko.

Not content to take all of our money with their POP! line, Funko debuts new additions the Fabrikations plush, Mopeez, Legacy figures, Re-Action figures, and more POP!s in exciting new franchises like Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, The Fifth Element, The X-Files, Breaking Bad, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jaws, Game of Thrones, Star Trek, Garbage Pail Kids, and more.

A lot of these new items have been listed for pre-order, so we thought we’d give you product links on some of the stuff we posted about previously along with some new items.

Check it out after the break.

Each character is cast from a specially formulated metalized resin and painted by expert model makers. Plus, they include a 16-page magazine with comic artwork and chess tips.

With characters from both the Marvel and DC universes, you can cast some of your favorite characters as key pieces and battle.

Head after the break to see more of the upcoming pieces in the collection.

superhero inspirational poster 1

Superheroes keep rather busy with the day to day schedule of fighting criminals and stopping nefarious plans. It’s probably hard to stay motivated. Artist Adam Thompson reminds us and them of why being a hero is the best path with his “Heroic Words of Wisdom” series. Each poster features the silhouette of a DC Comics superhero and an inspirational quote from him or her.

Thompson explains on Behance:

My work, centered around comic book characters, comes with the challenge of reaching to an audience beyond those who are already fans of those characters. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy very much to see existing fans of these characters who enjoy my work. However, up until this project, I’ve been indulgent of being a fan, and neglectful of the challenge of reaching that larger audience.

Superheroes already have a prominent place in pop culture. Their images can be seen anywhere. As a fan I enjoy seeing the strength of these characters in the spotlight, but because I am looking to reach a new audience, I needed to find a new light. I had to consider that comic books are a series of images accompanied by dialogue, and since it’s the images that are already so prominent, I decided to focus on the dialogue.

These are the kind of motivational posters I’d put on my wall.

Hit the break to see the rest of the posters.

Pause for a moment and think about all the superhero films and television series in the works, currently airing, and already in your DVD/Blu-ray collection. You’re making out like a bandit whether you’re a fan or Marvel or DC. YouTube user Alex Luthor took that happy feeling we all get from seeing our favorite heroes and villains on screen and turned it to 11 by making a trailer that imagines what it would be like if Marvel and DC characters played in the same universe.

It pulls from both movies and television, and Luthor did a tremendous job editing together battles from The Avengers, The Flash, Man of Steel, Thor, and more to make it appear as though Marvel and DC characters are facing off.

Watch the awesomeness in the video after the break.
