The latest SDCC product reveals include another round of Batman v Superman merchandise debuted by USA Today. We’ve already seen a Lego Batmobile and Funko Pop! figures, and now there are more realistic figures from Mattel for Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman along with two vehicles.

The releases include a $30 two-pack with 6″ tall figures of Batman and Superman and a 12″ tall Barbie Wonder Woman. Hot Wheels will have a $25 Batmobile and a special Hot Wheels car celebrating the movie will also be available. If you go to SDCC, they’ll even have a life-size version of the car on display.

play arts kai venom 2

Square Enix does it again with the new Marvel Universe Venom Variant Play Arts Kai figure. Standing 10 inches tall, this thing is so good it literally freaks me out.

It’s not quite as crazy as some other Play Arts figures, but between the sculpt and the paint, it’s amazing looking and it has a range of motion that allows for some awesome poses.

Accessories include interchangeable hands, effect parts that show symbiote appendages reaching out like massive hands, an alternate head, and a display stand.

Toys ‘R’ Us has revealed their SDCC exclusive Star Wars ‘Jabba’s Rancor Pit’ figure set. It includes Slave Leia, Luke, C-3PO, and a Gammorean guard that are all about the size of the 3.75″ classic Hasbro figures. Jabba measures a bit larger at 6″ and the Rancor appropriately towers over everyone. The set will debut at SDCC but will arrive in Toys ‘R’ Us stores later this year. The press release also included news of their new “Collector Vector” online store:

Hot Toys has revealed a new series of Artist Mix figures designed by Japanese artist Touma. The series includes Ant-Man, Yellowjacket and a special Ant-Man Black-Out version that can only be had when you purchase the deluxe set. Each bobble-head figure is about 13cm tall.

I have to say, that we like these more than the Age Of Ultron Artist Mix line.

Naturally, these are just the first Ant-Man toys in a line of collectibles Hot Toys will reveal leading up to the film’s debut on July 17th. We can’t wait to see their trademark sixth-scale figures.

Stay tuned to Sideshow Collectibles for pricing and release dates.

The latest in a long line of Funko Comic-Con exclusives is delightfully ridiculous. Jaws chomping on a bloody Quint is wholesome fun for kids at bath time.

Little 6-year-old Owen Lake accidentally left behind his Hobbes stuffed animal at Tampa International Airport before a flight to Houston. This might sound like the start to a very sad story, but the airport personnel took Hobbes on a grand adventure while waiting for Owen’s return to the airport. He got back his precious Hobbes, and he also received a photo album showing all all the awesome things Hobbes did while they were apart.

groot 2

Entertainment Earth was kind enough to send us a solar-powered dancing Baby Groot, and I have to say that we were impressed with his dancing prowess and endurance. All he needed was a little light (as all trees do) to get his groove on.

I woke up and there he was, dancing at the break of dawn.

Talk about a “take all my money” kind of collectible, Funko just debuted their Supernatural Mystery Minis mini-figures and I want them all, especially the Demon Dean and Abbadon. As Felicia Day noted, there’s even a LARPing Charlie!

Each figure measures approximately 2 1/2-inches tall and they’re blind-boxed mini-figures so the item selection is random, but I’m not sure how having more than one of any of this figures could be a bad thing. They’re so frickin’ cute.

Take a closer look after the break.
