Greetings my friends, we’ve arrived at the time of the year where people get to showcase their “Top Nine” images on Instagram and this reveal is done when they tabulate all of the likes across your profiles posts. Though I used Instagram quite a bit this past year I really fell behind based on just how many events I was attending. There is only so much time in the day and with major events like the Toy Fair, New York Comic Con and Anime NYC being so loaded with visuals I had my hands full. I’m going to maintain that I felt that I used this social network more than any of the other ones and I often share the images over to our Facebook and Twitter pages to spark up additional engagement. Let’s review.
About These Visuals:
Starting from the top row and working down we’ve got an amazing Nebula cosplayer from the New York Comic Con, the legendary Michael Schenker from a performance at Irving Plaza and a scene from the “Dio Returns” hologram show from afar. Next there is Miku Kobato of the all-girl Japanese Rock band Band-Maid, an amazing black and white statue of Batman from DC Collectibles and a Dave Mustaine from Megadeth statue from Knucklebonz. The last row is more live stuff with faraway visuals from the Original Misfits show and the Stryper show. Closing it all up is a popular cosplayer named Destiny Fomo. Though I was quite happy with the choices, I did expect a few different ones to be presented but the masses have spoken. All photos were taken by me of course. Now let’s examine some of the finer points about the account. Continue reading PiercingMetal’s “Top Nine” Instagrams For 2019→
The Press Release:
DC Collectibles has revealed the latest statue in the popular Batman Black & White series – Armored Batman by Frank Miller. #101 in the series is based on the iconic designs from Frank Miller’s 1986 series, The Dark Knight Returns. This armored Batman perfectly encapsulates the worn-out, dystopian vibe from the comics while showing the technological power Batman possesses in the story. While the figure is not due to hit shelves till summer 2020 it will for sure be one you won’t want to miss!
