‘Red Son’ Wonder Woman Statue Brings Socialist Justice to Sideshow

Sideshow
Sideshow

Continuing Sideshow Collectibles' premium format figure line based on Mark Millar's, Dave Johnson's and Killian Plunkett's Superman: Red Son, this week the company unveiled its Red Son Wonder Woman in full. Previously teased when the line was initially announced, the Wonder Woman statue does indeed take much of its design inspiration from the previously released, "standard" DCU Wonder Woman premium format figure. Still there are enough changes to make it an exciting new piece.

Lego Reveals New ‘Batman vs Superman’ Batmobile Set You Can’t Buy Until January

Lego/Wall Street Journal
Lego/Wall Street Journal

Though Lego doing building sets based around the upcoming Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice was an eventuality (and has been teased previously), we didn't know what kind of plans the company had in mind. Given Lego's history of providing a variety of sets in all shapes and sizes for the likes of its DC Super Heroes line, as well as recent developments with its Marve Super Heroes line (with regard to the movie-based sets), it seemed like anything was possible. Batcave? Maybe. Wonder Woman and Aquaman versus Lex Luthor? Sure, why not. Of course, the obvious answer was there the whole time.

Thanks to the beacon of geek news that is the Wall Street Journal, we have our first official look at Lego's initial BvS:DoJ set: the Batmobile. Though the set will be available for viewing at San Diego Comic-Con next week, Lego will not have the Batmobile available for sale. The 306 piece set won't be purchasable until New Year's Day 2016.

Batman 66 Maquette Captures All the Awesome That is Yvonne Craig’s Batgirl

Tweeterhead
Tweeterhead

The resurgence of Batman '66 has led to a number of collectibles celebrating the classic TV series. While there have been numerous Adam West Batman figures and Batmobile models, there haven't been nearly enough Batgirl options for longtime fans.

Part of that has to do with actress Yvonne Craig being the last member of the show to agree to license her likeness with Warner Bros. (she did so in 2013). As such, many companies worked on the line without including any Batgirl goods. The other part has to do with the reluctance of some companies to produce items centered on women in what are traditionally considered "boys'" lines, which is why the long awaited Batgirl figure in Mattel's Batman '66 line is an SDCC exclusive this year.

‘Justice League Dark’ Loses Director Guillermo del Toro

DC

In news that should surprise absolutely no one, Guillermo del Toro has dropped out of the proposed Justice League Dark movie. Or the Dark Universe movie. Or whatever everyone decided it was called. Every few years or so, del Toro tends to take a look at the dozen or so projects he’s spearheaded, gets realistic for a few seconds, and then shakes a few of them off. His take on the darker side of the DC comic book universe, which is still in the early stages of development, is the latest victim of his busy schedule.

NECA’s ‘Batman Returns’ Penguin is Disgustingly Awesome

NECA
NECA

After the success of Batman, Warner Bros. once again tapped Tim Burton to bring the Dark Knight to the sliver screen in the sequel, Batman Returns. While there was no Internet to rampantly speculate about what villain Batman should face off against after the Joker's demise at the conclusion of the 1989 film, the possibilities were endless. Batman's rogue gallery was massive and full of great foils for Bruce Wayne's alter-ego. Imagine the world's surprise when Burton, being as Burton as he could possibly be, tapped Danny DeVito for the role of the Penguin.
Now, some 20+ years later, NECA is finally giving DeVito's Penguin the action figure due he so deserved. Announced at last year's San Diego Comic-Con, the quarter-scale figure captures everything that made the Penguin such a memorable character, right down to the blue blood, natty hair, and toothy grimace that inspired many a nightmare in terrified kids.

Stop Motion Video Pits Batman Against Joker, Then Some Gundams, Also Captain America Shows Up

batman joker fight

We've all seen Batman fight the Joker endless times throughout the history of their relationship. From the original comics to the animated series, and from the movies to video games, there's no shortage of interpretations of the ultimate fight between good and evil that is Batman vs. the Joker. Whatever your opinion of those various encounters in the past, all of those fights are hot garbage compared to the latest video from YouTube stop motion animator, Counter656.

Counter656's most recent video pits the SH Figuarts Injustice: Gods Among Us Joker and Batman against one another in a stop motion throwdown for the ages. Taking nearly three weeks and 3500 different pictures, the five minute video incorporates every accessory the figures come with, as well as putting the articulation of each to great use in some excellently choreographed fight sequences. But Counter656 knows that we've all seen Batman vs. the Joker before, too, and isn't content to just let this brawl be another simple one-on-one encounter.

Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.

In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
