Comic Con Look Out!



Join us in San Diego for fun and hi jinks during this years Comic Con July 26-29. We're officially announcing our latest licenses and showing off the very first prototypes from many of them. We only have so many bibs to go around to clean up drool, so BYOB!

You'll be the first to see MARVEL props from Iron Man, X-Men and Thor plus many more. And drum roll please............a first glimpse into our latest prop and costume license from the World of Warcraft. Yes, that World of Warcraft.

You'll be among the first to pre-order the props at the show, which is the least we could do for you making the trip. And you know those LE's will fly!

Can't join us in San Diego? Check the website often for updates and join us in Atlanta the first weekend of Sept. for DragonCon. We'll be causing trouble there as well.

I won't spill the beans on everything we'll be announcing there yet (as if the Marvel and Warcraft stuff wasn't enough), that would take the fun out of teasing you further.

I think they call that an...ticipation.

Blade the Daywalker is still the man...



Yep, he's still the man and I'm going to pitch some products in this blog so be prepared.

Blade is as cool as ever and unless you've been living under a rock the last few weeks you know he's alive and well (at least the props are) at our stores for immediate delivery. Why go another night without proper vampire protection? Garlic...too smelly. Wooden cross...you could get splinters. Holy water...there's never water around with holes when you need it. Blade chose these weapons for a reason, we think you should too.

For all you Joss Whedon Firefly & Serenity fans/Browncoats our license won't last much longer, so act fast on our licensed collectibles from the movie. If you haven't seen the flick, well there's that rock thing again. Very well done, a lot of fun and worth a peek. My wife even jumped on board (although I suspect it's more because of Mal than anything).

Our holding pattern continues for some of the other licensed gear we're eager to announce, but we think a break will come soon, so stay put right here. Well, that's all folks!

Where have I been?

Hey all, I just flew back from LA and boy are my arms... well you get the idea. Sorry it's been so long, but the news I have from this trip is well worth the wait.

First- MARVEL, what nice people. Due to the prop license we have with them we got sneak peeks from the new Iron Man movie and WOW!!! Sorry you can't see them yet, but keep checking back because we'll be your best source when the Top Secret icon drops off the designs.

Second- we have agreed to a prop licensing deal with a huge gaming company. Stay tuned the official announcement will come in the next few weeks.

Third- many Dark Horse comics & graphic novels will be brought to life by us in a exclusive prop/clothing license to include all your favorites from anime and history to sci-fi and fantasy.

Whew, that was a lot to do in a few days. No, we haven't lost our focus or our minds we just see these great properties as avenues to show our stuff in a way you rarely get to see and enjoy.

Now off to bed.
