Well hello again my friends and welcome back to the continuing visual explorations from the 2016 NY Comic Con. I’m up to my third chapter and will only be speaking every now and again as it applies. Our next fifty photographs begin with this lovely pair of Gotham City Sires in Poison Ivy and Catwoman. Let’s wander the aisles together again.

Hey there my friends, do you remember when I was doing the Toy Fair coverage earlier in the year and I spotlighted a couple of the cool action figures that the world was going to get from NECA? If not that is okay but to recap they have been offering up some serious coolness based on Iron Maiden’s own maniacal mascot “Eddie” and we’ve seen him in his quite classic “Killers” form as well as from “The Trooper” with a real cloth outfit. Now I am happy to share with you the image of their available everywhere “Eddie” in his “Powerslave” Mummy outfit. Check out the official photo below and then I’ve got some press copy for you to absorb.
Here’s the Official Word on the figure from the NECA site “Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the classic metal masterpiece – Iron Maiden’s POWERSLAVE – with this amazing “Mummy” Eddie. Based on the poster and program artwork from their groundbreaking 1984-1985 World Slavery Tour, this 8″ tall Eddie action figure features real metal chains that can be connected to the mouth or unhooked for when he breaks free. Also includes a bonus interchangeable second head based on the SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME artwork, with the bandages stripped away to reveal more of the beast that lies beneath.”

Fans of The Misfits will be looking for an extra treat in their Halloween goody bags this year with this treat from the fine folks at NECA as they present us with “The Fiend” action figure who is most commonly known as being the mascot for the legendary Horror Punk band.

Welcome back my friends and here we go with Part 3 of our Day One coverage of the 2014 NY Comic Con. I’ll skip any dancing around with any pre-thoughts and just get down to business. My last chapter for Day One begins with what I observed at the Bandai pavilion and as you see they were putting the Red Power Ranger to good use while he was here and not out saving the universe. Thanks Red Ranger, I will indeed take a flyer from you. Let’s get to to work.
The Bandai pavilion had you being put to task to try and win some prizes. I didn’t try myself since I had so many other visuals to focus on today. They had lots of action figures around for fans to secure.
Here’s one of the Metal Legions that I see at shows all the time. I was officially spotted at NY Comic Con. Maybe I should bring along some CD’s next time for those who manage to locate me in the myriads of people out there.
