This November each Block will have a one in seven chance of receiving a Bruce Campbell signed postcard!

These are not pre-printed signatures…this is the real deal! Bruce is currently at work signing tens of thousands of postcards to be randomly inserted into Nerd Block Classic just for you! Hail to the king, baby!

Feast Your Eyes on Our Humongous New York Comic Con 2014 Toy Gallery

The cosplay and the movie stars get a lot of the love when the New York Comic Con rolls into the Jacob Javitz Center but the toy barrage doesn’t get as much attention. And that’s a shame, because if you’re a toy enthusiast the event can feel like the best museum on the planet with thousands of prototypes, new products and existing toys on display behind glass to tantalize and torture because no matter how much you beg, vendors will never let you take them all home.

In the included gallery, there are 250 pictures of some of NYCC’s coolest toys. It would be impossible for me to pick a favorite, but I can tell you that both the Killer Clowns from Outer Space figs and the Chucky figs look scary as hell, Mezco‘s Batman figures are as awesome up close as they look in these pics, and NECA Toys impressed with their 1:6 scale Danny Devito Penguin, their Burt Ward Robin and the rest of their sizable case.

I can also tell you that McFarlane‘s Walking Dead line is taking a great leap forward with the upcoming RV playset and the 10″ deluxe Rick Grimes figure that I was unfortunately unable to get a good picture of since I found myself by the McFarlane booth when it was swarmed by fans who wanted to get a look at Todd McFarlane himself, who was making an appearance.

The QMx booth also drew some crowds, but I’m pretty sure that that was all about the astonishing film scale (1:124) replica of Serenity from the film of the same name and Firefly. Luckily, we got some super up-close shots of the $7,495 “toy” and a look inside its interiors, which feature miniature versions of the Firefly cast. We’ve also got some great pics of QMx’s other Firefly products, which are damn shiny.

Enough words, check out the pics!

Exclusive Marvel Select Bleeding Edge Iron Man Action Figure Coming to Marvelshop.com!

Since his comic-book debut in 1968, brilliant inventor Tony Stark has always stayed at the forefront of technology as he developed newer and better versions of his Iron Man armor. He’s come a long way from the transistors of the 1960s, and his latest suits of armor can respond to his very thoughts! Now, Diamond Select Toys and marvelshop.com have collaborated on an all-new Marvel Select action figure immortalizing one of Iron Man’s most high-tech armors ever: Bleeding Edge Iron Man!

Debuting in Invincible Iron Man #25, the Mark 38 armor is actually made up of millions of nano-machines stored inside Tony Stark’s body, which exit through the pores of his skin using repulsor technology to form a protective layer over his entire body. While Stark has since developed other armors, the Mark 38 represented a new way of thinking about Iron Man, and was truly on the “bleeding edge” of comic book technology.

Exclusively available at marvelshop.com starting October 13, this 7-inch action figure has 16 points of articulation, and comes with a display base that simulates Iron Man’s flight path through the wing of an enemy fighter jet. Base and figure will come packaged in display-ready Select figure packaging, with comic art on the side panel for easy reference during on-shelf storage.

After October 27, the Marvel Select Bleeding Edge Iron Man figure will be made available on disneystore.com, and will begin to make its way to Disney Store shelves in the U.S. and Canada.
