Bluefin, the North American toy distributor, has announced a pair of collectibles from its newest partner – Hong Kong-based Storm Collectibles. Currently available via pre-order are two new 1/6th scale figures - the "Bad Boy" Dennis Rodman and Mike Tyson "Olympics" collectibles.

The Mike Tyson “Olympics” figure (pictured above) will be a limited edition Bluefin exclusive. It will retail around $255.00 and begin shipping around February 2016. This new exclusive figure captures Tyson’s outfit from the Junior Olympics, just as he was ready to explode onto the international stage, and comes with a variety of accessories to recreate all of his iconic moments.

The Dennis Rodman “Bad Boy” special edition figure is currently available to purchase with an MSRP of $250.00. This version captures Dennis in his “baddest” look yet, as seen when he took to WCW professional wrestling. During this period, he teamed up with Hollywood Hogan to create some of the most memorable and wildest tag team moments in WCW history.

When is an “Exclusive” not so exclusive?

With New York Comic Con happening earlier this month, I got to thinking...why do companies and artists continue to call something a NYCC Exclusive if it's available to those that didn't attend NYCC?

- restricted or limited to the person, group, or area concerned.

There are a number of folks who allow people to pre-order their Convention Exclusives and then have the exclusive shipped to that person's home. Eliminating the actual need to go to the convention. And then there are those items that were exclusive to the convention, but didn't sell rather than making them truly exclusive (maybe destroying or keeping the leftovers?), they sell them in an "after the Con sale".

Doesn't this nullify the claim to exclusivity?

IAmElemental – Elements of Courage


Every San Diego or New York Comic Con, you come across a new line or company that just hadn't been on your radar previously. For NYCC15, it was IAmElemental. They've produced a series called Elements of Courage, which features female heroes in action figure form. Typically, we (American society) think of boys playing with action figures and girls playing with dolls...but IAmElemental is attempting to change that stereotype. The first series consist of 7 action figures and there's a complete set option available that includes all 7 - plus drawstring bags, some accessories, and a lunch box - for $65.00.
