Bombshells aplenty! Cryptozoic was at it again delivering adorably packaged, beautifully painted DC Bombshells. The anticipated sell-out of the newly premiered Lil Bombshells 1.5 includes the same sculpts of the first version, but with paint variants.
Other newly premiered pieces include the larger, high-end pieces such as the 60s era Batmobile and Lois Lane and Superman figures. Stop by the booth to check out the Batmobile in person; newly released the detail is astounding. Look forward to more high-end pieces in Cryptozoic's future.
Mightly Meeples, gamepieces or just collectibles, are also available at the booth. The DC line boasts 30 pieces, while the Ghostbusters line has 7 with an oversized StayPuft piece.
Alongside these recent releases are a collaboration with Quidd, an online app for virtual trading cards! Rick and Morty, their newest cards to trade, will be available in July.
Also available for purchase is the Batman the Animated Series 'Almost Got 'Im' werewolf-style deduction game. Inside the game play Poker with unique cards, ranging from Batman, Riddle, Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and yes Joker cards. Since every player is involved in the poker game, every player is active and engaged. Don't assume Batman will always win, Catwoman could easily steal the hand!
Future Bombshells are also reviewable at the booth, including upcoming SDCC exclusives in white and gold. Preorder begins on the 4th, so set your sights on your favorite bombshell and prepare now! Bombshells aren't just for DC, Capcom partnered with Cryptozoic to bring us Lil' Knockouts, complete with an adorable Chun Li. Expect them in mini-tins a la Bombshells.
Other future collectibles to keep an eye on are the up and coming DC shoes (lookout cosplayers, you know you'll want to reproduce these pumps!) and the new Tikis. They look wooden but have only been distressed to resemble it, they're actually vinyl. Expect Wonderwoman and Superman tikis in the near future!
