Batman Arkham Knight, Pacific Rim Toys Among First-Announced Comic Con Exclusives
This year’s San Diego Comic Con International is just over two months away, so we’re starting to see some of the first convention exclusives announced.
Among the toys just tipped for release in July are Batman: Arkham Knight, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Disney Pixar’s Cars and Pacific Rim, plus a DC Comics Cyborg figure that will likely be announced a second time along with the rest of DC’s exclusives closer to the date.
Spotted by CBR, Mattel is bringing the DC offerings as well as Cars, while NECA is bringing a Super Freddy from Nightmare and a trio of Jaegers from Pacific Rim. You an see the photos below.
The Batman: Arkham Knight-based Batman and Batmobile, Total Heroes Cyborg and the Cars Neon Racers Gift Pack can be pre ordered on Mattycollector.com starting on June 24 and be picked up at the show — or you can try your luck with buying them onsite, but that tends to be iffy.
NECA is making limited quantities of their exclusives available online for those who can’t attend San Diego Comic Con International but also don’t want to be stuck paying convention-scalper prices. Here’s how CBR describes the toys:
First up is Freddy Krueger! Limited to 5000 pieces, this 8-inch retro cloth figure takes its design and color scheme from “A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child” when everyone’s favorite dream manipulator donned his Super Freddy duds. More recently, NECA unleashed a ”Pacific Rim” 7-inch 3-pack featuring shiny, black versions of Gipsy Danger, Crimson Typhoon and Striker Eureka as they appeared during the film’s end credits, which can be more fully recreated thanks to the window box and its inserts.
