SDCC 14: Sam Wilson Will Keep His Wings, As Revealed In New Captain America Digital Comic

Well keeping the wings probably isn’t going to stop people from calling the new Captain America “Falcon Cap”, but what it will do is help bridge the gap between the current Captain America series and the new one. Actually it won’t do that either, but what will is the digital only series All-New Captain America: Fear Him.The series is the new Cap’s big test as the new Cap and is written by Dennis…

The doors are open at the pop culture event of the year! To celebrate, Dark Horse is kicking things off with the reveal of the latest figure to join the growing line of figures based on characters from the smash hit HBO® series, Game of Thrones!

Tywin Lannister, father of Cersei, Jaime and Tyrion and known as the wealthiest man in the seven kingdoms and Hand of the King, is a perfect addition to the upcoming group of detailed collectible Game of Thrones figures produced by Dark Horse Comics.

“We just couldn’t say no to Tywin,” said Dark Horse VP of product development David Scroggy. “It didn’t seem like a smart idea to deny him.”

Exclusively revealed on social media by HBO earlier this afternoon, the figure prototype can be viewed throughout the show as a key item in Dark Horse’s upcoming products display at booth #2615!

The Tywin Lannister figure joins an ongoing series of non-articulated figures based on characters from the popular series. Debuting in January 2014, the ongoing range will continue through 2015.

The Tywin Lannister figure measures approximately 8” tall on his base. It will be packaged in a full-color window-box package.

Scheduled on-sale date is March 2015, making this figure available in-store just ahead of the season five premiere of Game of Thrones.

This was spotted in the tweet that you’ll see below. Frankly I’m just glad that they didn’t go for the Orange and Teal layout that a vast majority of movie posters use these days. Look no further than this summer’s

Well Mondo has gotten into the toy/statues game with two TMNT figures and one is based off of Eastman’s black and white drawing. The other which is far cuter is from artist Mike Mitchell.
