Mattel Reveals The “Justice League” 6″ Action Figures

Now that “Wonder Woman” is kicking some behind in the box office, the attention is starting to build up for the Late Fall opening “Justice League” film. With this being the case the toys are going to start coming as well, and Mattel has just recently unveiled their first group of action figures that is based on the film. Let’s take a look at them with the official images.

When I went to the local comic book shop to check out the new titles for the week, I took notice of the racks of action figures and saw that a few new characters in the “DC Superhero Girls” line was now available. Considering that I think this is a fantastic idea to get more girls into the comics and action figures as a whole, I felt sharing the images of the items was a good idea since we are rapidly approaching the gifting season. Thanksgiving is now around the corner and before you blink it will be Christmas and Chanukah and I want you ready to get some heroic goodness out to the ones you love.

I actually saw my first glimpse of this action figure line by Mattel when I visited the Play Fair portion of the American International Toy Fair earlier this year. My overview of that specific aspect can be examined on my PiercingKen.com site with THIS LINK so do please check it out. Now since these were on the racks I could only get this kind of photo but they are nice and clear and very legible. I don’t think that I need to name the characters since so many are instantly identifiable as well. Each figure is about 6″ tall and comes with an accessory of some sort. Here we go.

PiercingMetal Goes To NY Comic Con 2013: Day 2 – Part 1

Alright my friends and fellow Comic Book Convention loving maniacs, it’s time to start sharing the adventures that I undertook at the 2013 NY Comic Con. Today was technically the second day of the massive event that dominates The Javits Center and since I was walking this as one of the fans this time around, I had only secured a “3 Day” Pass. Despite losing one day, I felt that we met a wonderful batch of new Cosplay friends and reconnected with a few handfuls of professionals that are always welcome sights at the Con. In order to keep your focus, I’ll be parsing out each post to fifty images apiece. It’s more work for sure but let’s those who want to find themselves do so with more ease. Here we go.

When I arrived to the Javits Center the lines were already incredibly long but that is nothing new when it comes to this particular event. This year had a new process where you had to tap a screen with your badge when you went in or went out so that added to the wait time but it surely helped prevent those fake badges from getting into the event. While I waited on line I met this charming Aussie lass who kept me company until we both went in and on our separate ways. I guess she was in SHIELD Cosplay.
