weekender

What a week! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to sit back and read some comics. The weekend is finally here, and the world can relax and rest once more --- but the comics industry has been busy too, you know, and the last seven days have seen a flurry of comics-based news and announcements fly past at high speed. ComicsAlliance has got your back, though: when it comes to comics, we never slow down, and so here’s a look back and just what’s been going on.

New comics, new stories, new events, new podcasts, new projects being made --- it’s all part of the ComicsAlliance Weekender!

Best Cosplay Ever: San Diego Comic-Con Edition [SDCC 2016]

Usagi Yojimbo, Rocksteady and Bebop

This year's San Diego Comic-Con may not have felt as over-stuffed as years passed, but that didn't mean the convention floor wasn't still jam-packed with incredible cosplay. The annual event is still home to some of the biggest and brightest cosplayers in the 'verse, and we were reminded just how talented and creative comic book fans can be when roaming the show floor this year. We managed to track down some fantastic highlights on Saturday, and captured them for all of you to witness here.

The Multiverses Expand With Suicide Squad, DC Super Hero Girls and More at Mattel [SDCC 2016]

DC Super Hero Girls Invisible Jet Wonder Woman

Despite a soft showing earlier this year, Mattel is still committed to the DC Multiverse line. So much so in fact that there are five different waves planned through 2017, not even including exclusive waves at the likes of Walgreens, Toys R' Us and Walmart. Though the early releases haven't been terribly strong, the upcoming waves do hit some particularly interesting roster choices, which bodes well for the die hard DC fan looking for a Doctor Psycho or Reaper figure.

Multiverse definitely had the largest footprint at the Mattel boot at San Diego Comic-Con this year, but the DC Super Hero Girls were there in spirit if not in force. There was also a lot of attention paid to Mega Bloks Kubros line, which is fairly appealing in that its giving us building sets for licenses we never thought might enter that style of collectible. No matter how you stack it, Mattel definitely had a lot going on at SDCC.

Sideshow Brings Hot Toys, Prime 1 Studios, Everything and the Kitchen Sink to Comic-Con [SDCC 2016]

Hot Toys Star Wars Millennium Falcon Cockpit

Every San Diego Comic-Con, Sideshow rolls out the blue carpet for its vast catalog. Though the booth is massive year after year, SDCC 2016 was a special exception to the rule. Not only was Sideshow's booth tremendously large, it was packed to the gills with new original statues, premium format figures and sixth-scale characters, along with licensed distribution partners like Hot Toys and Prime 1 Studio. There was more pop culture amazingness in one square foot of Sideshow's booth than there is at most minor conventions held throughout the year.

Recounting what was there won't be an easy task, but it will be fun to revisit all the new hotness and dream of a world where we could afford any of it. From statues to 1/6 scale figures, you'd have an easier time telling someone what Sideshow Collectibles didn't have at its booth at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.

The Lego Batman Movie’s First Building Sets Roll Into Comic-Con [SDCC 2016]

The Lego Batman Movie Joker's Lowrider Set

Where most companies are dropping huge announcements and reveals left and right during San Diego Comic-Con, Lego was perfectly confident to rely on its existing catalog and just a smidgen of new product. The biggest news comes in the form of two spanking new sets from The Lego Batman Movie. Though not out until 2017, Lego is already well ahead of the game on what vehicles and characters will make the leap from the film to actual toys.

This fall, Star Wars Rebels returns to the air after one of the most spectacular finales in Star Wars television history. There are a lot of questions hanging in the air about the fates of Ezra, Kanan, Hera, Sabine, Zeb and Chopper, as well as the forces of evil potentially driving them apart, like Darth Maul. We got a sneak peek of the upcoming season at Star Wars Celebration Europe, and it only intensified our desire to learn more about what's in store for our favorite characters.

We caught up with stars Sam Witwer (Darth Maul) and Tiya Sircar (Sabine) after checking out the premiere to talk about the futures of their respective characters, and what it's like having to keep so many secrets for so long.
