What all Indiana Jones collectors have been waiting for…
Hasbro brings us a special Indiana Jones Exclusive at Comic-Con 2011. It will be a special 30th anniversary box set which will include the cancelled fifth wave of Raiders of the Lost Ark figures. The set will include Indiana Jones (ultimate version w/ a brand new head sculpt), Marion Ravenwood, Satipo, German Mechanic, Indy in German Disguise, and Toht (with extra melted head and a interchangeable hand with a gun).
I included a comparison photo of what the 30th anniversary box set includes AND a promo photo of the set from 2009 which never came to be.
Star Wars Revenge of the Jedi Collector 12-Pack
Star Wars collectors will be getting a Death Star (gigantic carboard case) from Hasbro that holds 12 individually carded Vintage Collection figures. You will also get figures of Salacious Crumb and a Mouse Droid. These figures will feature the STAR WARS: Revenge of the Jedi cards which was the original title of Return of the Jedi.
Here are a some photos of Hasbro’s Death Star package. Let’s see some of you guys/gals carry this one out of the convention center. Yikes! Someone call the 501st!
Ok. Who’s ready to get one? I wonder how many Hasbro will bring to Comic-Con.
Here is a look at the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con 2011 Exclusive Gort Predator figure. The first picture shows an unpainted resin tooling model for the Gort mask with dreads. This Comic-Con exclusive will feature an original Predator body and includes a bloody severed skull with spine accessory.
The next image shows the double knee joint that NECA is using for Predator 2 (crouching will be possible).
Finally, a painted version of Gort is what you’re probably waiting for.
A standard version of Gort using a PREDATOR 2 body will be released later this year as part of NECA’s “Lost Tribe” figures. These were the Predators that were seen at the end of PREDATOR 2.
As a bonus image, here is the front & back sides of the packaging of the Predator 2 figures.
There is a Doctor Who Sweepstakes available to only legal U.S. residents of Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Ventura, and Riverside counties in California, age 18 years or older as of 3/21/2011. The Sweepstakes ends 4/24/2011. The Grand Prize Winner receives TWO 4-day passes to Comic-Con 2011, 4 nights stay at a hotel and $1000 to spend! There will also be TEN First Prize Winners. They will receive a Blu-ray box set of Doctor Who Season 5!
I wonder why they limited the Sweepstakes to only a few counties in California? It’s not like they were flying the winners to San Diego… San Diego residents are not even included!!! Very curious. I’m sure this will not set well with a few people out there.
Here’s the Sweepstakes Link and Good Luck!
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Void where prohibited. For complete official rules and/or winners’ list send a self-addressed stamped envelope to: Doctor Who Sweepstakes Sponsored by BBC America, P.O. Box 251888, Los Angeles, CA 90025 before 5/10/2011.

Hasbro announced at Toy Fair 2011 that one San Diego Comic-Con exclusive would be the Transformers Starscream Skystriker with Cobra Commander and Megatron Blaster.
Unfortunately, the Starscream Skystriker doesn’t transform and is a repaint of the regular Skystriker to the Generation 1 Starscream color scheme. Cobra Commander will pilot the Starscream Skystriker and his sidearm looks like a Generation 1 Megatron blaster.
