Good morning Towelite toy lovers! It’s been a great week for collectibles and as we approach SDCC you know that there will be plenty of treats and news of upcoming swag! So let’s get on with this week’s highlights and what may be headed to our collective shelves!

Happy that I may be able to get my hands on this one. I love the crossovers between TMNT and Batman and I think that DC Collectibles did a great job capturing the lightness of Mikey. Here’s the official run-down!

DC Collectibles: Mikey as Batman: What mischief is Mikey up to now? Batman might just have to talk to him about borrowing without asking. Mikey is decked out in Batman’s iconic cowl and cape in this awesome 2019 Previews Exclusive (available during and at SDCC). Accessories include a sewer lid, a slice of pizza and two extra sets of hands.

The Dark Knight Meets Mutant Mayhem!

When a new menace in Gotham City begins stealing experimental technology, Batman is put on high alert. But a team of warriors lurking beneath the streets is also on the case: the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Led by Leonardo, these brothers – brainy Donatello, fearless Raphael and wisecracking Michelangelo – are mysterious martial artists on a collision course with the Dark Knight. Based on the hit DC Comics crossover, Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a high-flying, pulse-pounding adventure the likes of which Gotham has never seen! 

 

The Fourth of July is nearly upon us and we definitely don’t have enough patriotism in our Funko collection. Well wait no longer! Here comes Funko American History POP! Head on over to our affiliate site Entertainment Earth to pick up your patriotic set today!

 

I’m a little meh on this one. Maybe after Hasbro releases more promo photos I may change my mind. This pic is a bit stylized up. If you want the Marvel Legends Cowboy Logan/Wolverine in your collection then head on over to our affiliate site Entertainment Earth to pre-order today Bub!

 

Hasbro showed of theirs and now Hot Toys has shown theirs. Hot Toys wins. If you have the money then YOU ARE IRON MAN! Check out the Hot Toys Avengers: Endgame Nano Gauntlet over at our affiliate site Sideshow Collectibles!

 

Loved this show for a long time but then I fell off. I love that there’s enough demand for these to exist. Chronicle Collectibles is releasing the three main characters, Floki, Lagertha and Ragnar, from History’s Vikings in 1/9th scale statue form. Each retails for about one hundred bucks.

 

The Batman Arkham series is a thing of legends and while we wait for Rocksteady’s next chapter we can enjoy this Batman Arkham 10th Anniv. Statue by Kotobukiya.

 

Finally today, something that I totally love and can get behind. Not only can kids build Star Wars Droids with LEGO but they can learn to write code and make their droids do things. Educational toys at their best, to be honest I may buy myself a set… LEGO Star Wars Boost Droid Commander will be available soon but you can find more information on the official LEGO website!

See you next week and Happy Hunting!
