Making their debut at San Diego Comic-Con 2011, this limited special edition set of Android mini figures designed by Andrew Bell is sure to please the summer movie and comic book loving crowd! This awesome SDCC 2011 Exclusive Heroes and Villains Android Set includes four figures in all, 2 heroes (The Hidden Task and El Poderoso) and 2 villains (Greentooth and Cycle-On). Bell will release one design each day of Comic-Con starting on Preview Night (Wednesday, July 20th) at DKE Toys’ SDCC booth #4728.

The Blot received some very exciting news today, Hasbro’s Mighty Muggs are back! With no new news in almost a year, I had officially written off the toy line for good. Then yesterday Marvel announced their first San Diego Comic-Con exclusive: The Avengers Special Edition Mini Mighty Muggs Collector's Pack. Just when you think you’re out, Hasbro brings you back in! These figures look amazing, and the only question I have now is who’s picking me up a set in San Diego?
The San Diego Comic-Con 2011 Exclusive The Avengers Mini Mighty Muggs Collector’s Pack includes five figures in all: 4 Mini Mighty Muggs (Hulk, Thor, Iron Man and Captain America) and a full size Giant Man Mighty Mugg. I really have to hand it to Hasbro on this one, I love everything about this set! From the packaging with Giant Man’s head sticking out of a Mini Mighty Muggs box to the decision to make Giant Man a full size Mighty Mugg, Hasbro did a really great job with this release. Here’s hoping they sell enough of these bad boys to garner future Mini Mighty Muggs releases.
The Avengers Mini Mighty Muggs 5 figure set will retail for $34.99 and can be purchased from HasbroToyShop.com’s SDCC booth #3329. According to Marvel, if you can't get your hands on this first set of Marvel Mini Mighty Muggs while at SDCC, there may be a limited amount available through HasbroToyShop.com after the convention. I don’t know what’s more exciting, that Hasbro will releasing some of these figures through its online store or that this is considered the “first set” of Marvel Mini Mighty Muggs (meaning future sets are already in the works!).

Last night at an early screening of Transformers 3 at the Arclight Hollywood in Los Angeles, Mondo released an all new Transformers: Dark of the Moon poster by Jesse Philips. 3,000 copies of the green offset version of the TF3 poster were handed out exclusively to attendees of the special screening. For the rest of us, a special gold variant edition screen print will be sold by Mondo later today. This print is incredibly detailed, and I love the fact that it features Sentinel Prime instead of the more obvious choices (ala Optimus Prime or Bumblebee).
