So in a sneak attack “stealth release” Warner Bros’ latest direct to DVD animated project, JLA: Trapped In Time will be carried exclusively by Target and will be available in all United States Target Stores next week, January 21st.
Dallas Comic Con has just announced their first exclusive; a Funko Pop! Reverse Flash figurine that is limited to only 2,000 pieces along with a Glow in the Dark variant limited to 500 pieces to be released and sold at Dallas Comic Con coming up May 17 through May 19, 2013.
About a month ago DC Entertainment (formerly known as DC Comics) announced that they would they be rechristening their collectible products line, previously known as DC Direct, with a new brand dubbed DC Collectibles. Not only that but they pledged to make it easier for those without a Local Comic Shop (like I) to purchase their entire products line via their own e-commerce online shop known as ShopDCEntertainment.com. The site is finally live!
Converse has FINALLY gotten around to making an official pair of DC Comics licensed Flash Chuck Taylors. Chuck Taylors were a style of shoe first created in 1915, with the current incarnation being popularized in the 70s. Converse has released several different kinds of shoes over the years featuring DC Comics characters including Batman, Superman, and Green Lantern. To my knowledge the closest we got to having a pair of Flash Chucks before was if we made them ourselves:
Now Flash and Converse fans finally have an official pair of shoes to rock:
Available exclusively through popular online shoe website, Journeys. The shoes are currently available for pre-order to ship in June, although I think they have gone through their initial stock because my order is back-ordered until July. I’m crossing my fingers that the order goes through, there is no telling how many of these shoes are available. They are pretty affordable at $59.99 so if you plan on ordering them I would do it asap.
Anyone else plan on ordering a pair of these? How many of you would actually wear them?
All right! With wild speculation concerning the identity of the individual(s) behind Flashpoint swirling about, we have a surprise exclusive being released first through VA Comicon coming up April 9, 2011 in Richmond, VA. The remaining t-shirts will be distributed through various outlets until they are gone.
Check it out:
The T-Shirt retails for $19.99 and will only be available in limited quantities.
I think the timing of the shirt is indicative of what I’ve known all along; Malcolm Thawne is behind Flashpoint and Barry Allen has no hope of stopping him.
