HOT WHEELS® MARVEL DAREDEVIL VS. PUNISHER
SRP: $30 Available: Onsite
Hell’s Kitchen. It’s New York City’s boiling pot for trouble – but it’s Daredevil’s beat. When The Punisher comes in with his “destroy ’em all” approach, things get even hotter. This San Diego Comic-Con set commemorates that heroic clash with two premium edition Hot Wheels® character cars: Daredevil and The Punisher.
Sealed in a protective acrylic case, the cars feature Real Riders® wheels and are perched on top of an NYC building with a 3D city skyline backdrop. With the press of a button, the building’s window lights up, flashing from red to white, to reveal a glimpse of Daredevil’s battle with The Punisher inside. The packaging art was created by comic book illustrator Alex Maleev!

HOT WHEELS® STAR TREK® BUICK RIVIERA VEHICLE
SRP: $20 Available: Online
When the Star Trek series first blasted off into the stratosphere, the soon-to-befamous actor who made Mr. Spock one of TV’s best known sci-fi characters rewarded himself by becoming the proud owner of a stellar ’64 Buick Riviera. So proud, in fact, that he posed for an iconic photo while dressed in full Starfleet uniform with his car on the back lot of the TV studio. Hot Wheels® proudly pays tribute to the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek with this 3D diorama featuring a beautiful Hot Wheels® edition of the Riviera in a full die-cast body and chassis, with Real Riders® wheels and a Mr. Spock figurine. It’s a highly logical way to honor the milestone and the actor.

Barbie® Star Trek™ 50th Anniversary Doll (Comic-Con Edition)
SRP: $50 Available: Onsite

As Star Trek turns 50, we look back and celebrate one of the most influential television series of all time. Set in the 23rd century, the show follows the brave crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 as it explores strange new worlds and seeks out new life and new civilizations. With its smart storytelling, an A-list cast, and a who’s who of guest stars, Star Trek quickly solidified itself as a television classic as well as a cultural phenomenon with impact across society. Since then, Star Trek has spawned five spin-off series and over a dozen feature films. Star Trek has and will continue “To boldly go where no man has gone before.”

In the first pilot episode, “The Cage,” the Talosians use their power of illusion to interest Captain Pike in a young woman named Vina. They present her in various guises and settings, including as a beautiful, green-skinned Orion girl. Dressed in her shimmering metallic gold dancer’s dress with matching gold arm cuff, Vina as an Orion remains one of the most enduring images from Star Trek. This product will be available for pre-order at MattyCollector.com on June 15, 2016 for subscribers only (Early Access), and from June 16 through June 25 for everyone else (All Access). Orders must be picked up in person at San Diego Comic-Con.

And while this last one wasn’t announced with the others, Mattel posted a teaser image of this Wonder Woman with her Invisible Jet to the MattyCollectoer Facebook page this week and it looks amazing! From the looks of the figure, it seems to be a repaint of the previously released 3.75 inch Wonder Woman figure that was part of the SDCC Exclusive ‘Starro’ box set a few years back with a fabric skirt added on! Either way, this packaging is genius and is likely to make this a highly sought after item!

DC Universe Wonder Woman With Invisible Jet

DC COMICS™ introduced the world to the warrior princess of the Amazons, PRINCESS DIANA OF THEMYSCIRA, aka DIANA PRINCE, more commonly known as WONDER WOMAN™.
