“Rock Candy” is apparently the name that Funko chose for a new line of vinyl toys of female pop icons. Some of the figures here look pretty cool, but damn that is a stupid name for a vinyl toy line.
DC Comics and Entertainment Earth are producing this line of DC-themed chair capes. Entertainment Earth has apparently filed for a patent on capes for chairs, so look to see a lot of these with various Marvel, DC and other characters. These retail for $24.99. I’d get one, but my cats would almost certainly use it for a scratching post.
Diamond Select has a series of resin busts of DC characters based on their Batman: The Animated Series and Superman: The Animated Series appearaces.
Nice 9-inch PVC statues of female heroes/villains from the Batman and Superman animated series appearing later this summer.
Superhero Times gives a thumbs up review to DC Direct’s 1:6th scale Supergirl. Personally, I think the arms on the figure look more than a bit absurd (and this is a figure that’s roughly $90 at retail).
However, I am still tempted to pick this up everytime I pass it by at the local comic book store because of its accessories including . . . wait for it . . . Streaky the Super Cat,
Legion of Super-Pets anyone?
