Superhero Films & TV Shows @ #SDCC2016

A photo posted by TOYSREVIL (@toysrevil) on

Without a doubt, the “Superhero” genre of films have but flooded the masses and pop culture has embraced them, “good” and “bad”, and at this year’s San Diego Comic Con 2016, celluloid and google-box superheroes were out in force!

Remembering the "old days" when I'd been gagging for my fave comic-book characters to be made "live-action", I personally am in perpetual "courtship-mode" with the state of the genre now, so I'm still some steps behind "superhero-fatigue", thanks :)

From (newly branded) MARVEL Studios came the second trailer for DOCTOR STRANGE (see below), a teaser for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Vol.2 and THOR RAGNAROK (both videos online in the future, maybe?), and reveals galore - including actress Brie Allison as “Captain Marvel”, and Star-Lord’s dad revealed to be EGO The Living Planet - personified by actor Kurt Russell in humanoid form.

In the DC Extended Universe corner, amidst the mixed-furore of Zack Snyder’s BvS (*hey, I liked it), comes a fury of awesomeness from Warner Bros that no doubt cemented their coolness for this year’s geek-con: trailers for JUSTIC LEAGUE, WONDER WOMAN and even a “remixed” SUICIDE SQUAD leaving folks agawk (*raises-hand-frantically*). I’ll leave the videos embedded below to speak for themselves, thanks :)

From the silver-screens to the google-box, DC’s characters in The CW revealed new seasons for ARROW (Season 5, with more “heroes” being introduced), THE FLASH (Season 3, with more villains introduced), and DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW (Season 2, with “Legion of Doom” being introduced), while MARVEL Television (also a new branding) offered a teaser for LEGION and news that “Ghost Rider” will ben joining “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” … but remember, Marvel still has their Netflix crew to even the odds too! But I’m sure SUPERGIRL at The CW will be working hard to keep them at bay LOL

Sicklings (The Crystal Collection I) & “Guide to Black Twig Forest” Hardcover from Yosiell Lorenzo

"I'm releasing my new set of Sicklings that I'm calling The Crystal Collection I. Instead of doing multiples like I usually do, this time, I wanted to focus on one-offs and really put lots of detail to them. The majority of these Sicklings have some sort of crystal to them, whether its Amethyst, Quartz or Celestite." - shared Yosiell Lorenzo.
The Collection has since gone “live” on (from July 21st) and most of the pieces have been spoken for, with The Quartz Oracle and Blood Quartz Oracle available (at time of this post / see pics below). I’d recommend you folks to stay connected via his Instagram @yosiell, and not miss out on any further awesomeness!

"Along with this release, I've finally managed to get my Guide to Black Twig Forest made into a matte laminate hardcover. I updated a few of the pages and it still comes with a detailed map of the forest along with the explorers postcard. The hardcover book is 25.00 shipped (USA) $34.00 (international)."

Snagged a companion for my Bathing Duckie, Harley BB reunites with her “pudding’”, scored my first Rangeron, getting inspired by Secret Base x Hello Kitty figures, and am glad I was patient enough to wait for the pricing to go on discount on the EVA-04 … a quick and short Sunday at CSC weekend last, with the aim to meet up with my buddy Marine (and his family) … and as well I ended up feeling a lick of the toy-hunting the pulse and excitement of San Diego Comic Con 2016 - at the very least in my lil’red dot of the island Singapore, yeh?

PRESS CONTINUED: "The "Three Eyed Kaiju" first appeared on a t-shirt collaboration also designed by Chris Pyrate & released through Third Eye Comcs at Washington DC's Awesomcon 2014; but has since been recreated for 3 dimensional consumption.

While Third Eye Comics is a big supporter of the Designer-Toy community, selling all the major releases; this was the 1st time either Third Eye Comics or artist, Chris Pyrate, have produced a toy. The production & design was completely handled by Chris Pyrate & his studio/production company, AHUMANFLY.

The toy released at the Third Eye Comics sponsored convention, Awesomecon 2016 and immediately sold out of over 1/2 of the inventory … (the) polystone figure comes in a complete, 360 wraparound-imaged box also designed by Pyrate which serves as a diorama."
