So, this is cute. You know those enormous over-the-shoulder bags that Warner Bros. gives out every year at Comic-Con International in San Diego? The ones that you see and go, "Why would anyone need such an enormous bag!?" until you do your last minute shopping on Sunday and go, "Ohhhhhh thank goodness I have this enormous bag!!" The ones industrious fangirls have customized into wearable dresses? Well, this year WB anticipated the bags-as-fashion trend and have prepared a new bag ready-made to be worn. Besides being fashioned as a backpack, this year's swag bags -- featuring images from Teen Titans Go! and Beware the Batman -- come with a built-in cape.
If Play Imaginative's main line of Super Alloy action figures weren't limited enough, the Yes Anime booth #4729 at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 will be rolling out two new takes on its Batman and Superman figures. Both sculpted in the style of DC Comics Co-Publisher Jim Lee's New 52 costume designs, the figures stand 12" tall and are composed principally of die-cast (metal) material.The new $300, 85 percent die-cast Batman figure packs 50 points of articulation, a detachable and posable fabric cape, multiple swappable hands, a grappling gun and batarang, plus a magnetic gargoyle base to perch on care of magnets embedded in its feet.
There's a lot of cool swag set to debut exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con in July -- and we've been taking a look at quite a few of them of late -- but as the launch of the official SDCC 2013 exclusives portal has revealed, only one cosplay offering can adorn you in Akira Toriyama's 1989 precursor to Google Glass. At booth 140, Bluefin Distribution will be selling friggin' Dragon Ball Z scouters.
Heads up, collectors: the countdown to San Diego Comic-Con International 2013 continues, and today, DC Comics has announced the convention-exclusive covers that'll be available at their booth.

This year's San Diego Comic-Con International is almost upon us, and that means it's time once again for that harrowing social experiment where retailers put a limited number of items in a gigantic room with 150,000 fans and sit back to watch the chaos. It's basically the kind of thing that the Joker does, but on the upside, somebody's going to walk away with some pretty cool stuff.
This July 18-21 at San Diego Comic-Con International, Boom! studios will be selling a sweet 16 exclusive comics at its booth. On top of variant covers transporting characters into the San Diego Convention Center and its Gaslamp'ed surrounding, Boom! will also offer original content created just for the show. Robocop, Six-Gun Gorilla, Suicide Risk and Day Men will be represented in the exclusive rollout, with all-ages titles like Adventure Time, Fionna & Cake, Regular Show, Herobear and the Kid, Peanuts and Bravest Warriors on hand as well.You can get your fist look at all of Boom's SDCC-ery after the jump.
Minimates collectors may want to secure some clear shelf space before San Diego Comic-Con on July 17-21, especially if they're keen on Iron Man and Deadpool. Action Figure Xpress has announced an exclusive new "Deadpool Assemble" box set packing Cable-Pool, Captain Ameri-Pool, Thor-Pool and Phonics-Killer Iron Deadpool, plus a massive Iron Man 3"Hall of Armors" 10-pack that stocks eight of Shellhead's most iconic movie suits, along with 'mates of Tony Stark and Pepper Potts.
