With the insanely massive San Diego Comic Con fast approaching, Mattel have been quick to reveal all of their con exclusives ranging from a Ghostbusters themed Frankie Stein Monster High doll to a deluxe Wonder Woman action doll but it’s been their reveal of an 11″ She-Ra action doll that seems to be garnering the most attention.
Relive the glamorous, commanding adventures of She-Ra®, Princess of Power with this 11” highly detailed action figure. The Most Powerful Woman in the Universe features 24 points of articulation, rooted hair, 3 iconic fashions, 2 swords, signature shield, 6 interchangeable hands, a logoed stand, a 12-page mini comic: “The Story of She-Ra”, and a beautiful keepsake box with vivid imagery from the enchanting world of Eternia! Wage epic battle with She-Ra against The Evil Horde for the honor of Grayskull!
As a massive fan of X-Men veteran Storm, I’ve been hanging to see just how X-Men Apocalypse director Bryan Singer would present our weather witch in this new film set in the 1980’s. While numerous set photos featuring Jean Grey, Cyclops, Jubilee and Nightcrawler have spread across the net anything Storm related has been kept under wraps….until now.
During the panel for FOX’s upcoming blockbuster movies at this years SDCC, Singer, along with the entire cast of Apocalypse were on hand to show off some rough footage (no special effects) from the film. The 5 minute clip revealed not only what Storm looks like (80’s mohawk and all) but also Olivia Munn as Psylocke and the revelation of the four characters that will play Apocalypse’s Four Horsemen.
While a full reveal of Deadpool’s trailer was leaked, it appears only a short 15 second snippet from the footage has made its way online before being pulled by Fox.
As mentioned, one of the biggest reveals was the announcement of the mutants joining Apocalypse. Angel (played by Ben Foster) – who first showed up in X-Men: The Last Stand is one (we’re assuming as Archangel) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) is another with first timer Psylocke (Olivia Munn) and Storm (Alexandra Shipp) taking the last two places.
So we now have our first look at Storm and for the most part, the look is pretty spot on with the punk look she sported for a large portion of the 80’s. I’m much happier with this than I have been for X-Men 3 and Days of Future Past (wtf was with those hair styles?!).
Are you surprised with Psylocke and Storm being announced as part of the Four Horsemen? Sound off in the comments below!

Warner Brothers have just revealed the first of their big guns they plan on bringing to this years San Diego Comic Con in the form of merchandise for the up-coming Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice movie. First there was the Lego Batmobile, then a diecast Hot wheels Batmobile with rubber tyres and now, we’re being treated to some pretty awesome looking figures.
A 6″ Superman and Batman double pack that feature both figures with likeness of Henry Cavil (Superman) and Batman (Ben Afleck), fabric capes and matching bases that when joined, form the movies logo will be available to SDCC goers with a retail price of $30 plus a Wonder Woman Barbie that sadly won’t be available for purchase (but will be on show) until next year with the movie’s release. The Wonder Woman doll features a brand new face sculpt, rooted hair, jointed body and outfit that resembles the one that will be featured in the upcoming Dawn of Justice movie.
