The Man of Steel is coming to Comic-Con, and he’s bringing … cookies?
A Superman action figure, with spit curl, S-shield and a super-sized midriff in the witty style of British animation studio Aardman (Wallace and Gromit), will be one of four DC Collectibles products available exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con July 18-21.
Standing more than 6 inches tall, the Aardman Superman is priced at $24.95 and comes packaged with a cookie, which would explain the tummy bulge under that trademark “S.”
For the kids who enjoy the Super Best Friends Forever shorts on Cartoon Network’s DC Nationanimation block, there’s a three-pack ($49.95) designed by Lauren Faust of the three popular superheroines, Supergirl, Batgirl and Wonder Girl.
You’ll want to have some heroes with all those villains, so video-game fans will want to seek out a Hugo Strange action figure ($29.95), based on the scientist baddie from Batman Arkham City.
And the fourth release is a “Superheroes of Green Lantern” four-pack ($49.95) starring a quartet of the coolest antagonists in the galaxy on a 3¾-inch scale. In addition to Sinestro in his Green Lantern colors, there’s Sinestro Corps powerhouse Arkillo, the evil Black Hand and the Red Lanterns’ furriest feline member, Dex-Starr.
