DC Collectibles sextet of Justice League Movie superheroes statues.

In less than 24 hours, the Warner/DC Justice League Movie will be released to the general public, and all the online speculation, movie trailer dissection can end. You’ll decide for yourself if this highly debated and anticipated film hits your sweet spot. Then you can hop back online to watch all the Easter Egg reveals.

The success of last spring’s Wonder Woman has certainly added more excitement for this team-up flick than the reception to Batman Vs. Superman did. It’s also nice to know we’ll get a second Wonder Woman installment.

One thing’s for sure. DC Collectibles has created a sextet of exceptional statues to compliment the film versions of Superman (Henry Cavill,) Batman (Ben Affleck,) Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot,) Cyborg (Ray Fisher,) Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Flash (Ezra Miller).

These figures join the selection of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman statues also on display last February at the Toy Association’s North American International Toy Fair in New York City.

DC Collectibles products range from articulated action figure play-sets to showcase quality, limited edition, sculpts like these. Sculptors include David Pereira (Aquaman,) James Masarno (Wonder Woman,) and David Giraud (The Flash).

I might dare say that I actually prefer these foot tall versions to the actual costume replicas as seen at New York Comic Con last month. Costume details on the life size versions felt distracting overall, especially on The Flash suit, which should be sleek and suggest the power of his speed.

Cho Knows…
Also just released is an excellent rendition of Frank Cho’s Wonder Woman Rebirth #1 cover art.

Tom Morello Jump Starts NY Comic Con

Tom Morello fires up Black Spartacus @ NYCC Special Concert

New York Comic Con 2011 offered Press, and those willing to spring for 4 Day passes, a chance to get a 3 hour event “sneak peak” in advance of the inevitable onslaught of fandom sure to descend on The Jacob Javitts Center on official day one.

They’ll be plenty of images to peruse here on SkeletonPete over the next few days. Along with Piercing Metal’s Ken Pierce I’ll do my best to give you a healthy overview as well as a closer look at things that draw my attention. From the small taste we got today it looks like it will be an “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” weekend. It’s a veritable storm of dazzling sights.

Capping off the evening on October 13 Rage Against The Machine’s guitarist Tom Morello, AKA “The Nightwatchman”, treated post preview attendees to a sterling set at the venue’s IGN theater space. Morello, with Freedom Fighter Orchestra cohorts, lauded the NYC grassroots “Occupy Wall Street” movement for their resolve with “Save The Hammer For The Man” (co-penned with Ben Harper). He introduced his new guitar “Black Spartacus” with a tune of the same name and mesmerized the crowd with quiet (“Garden of Gethsemene”) and thunderous (“Ghost of Tom Joad”) moments, including some of his patented guitar abuse.

Tom admitted surrendering to his inner sci-fi and comics geek. “You gotta embrace it”. The set also served to herald the release of Orchid, a graphic novel written by the guitarist. The story cycle will be presented by Dark Horse Comics in 12 installments, the first of which was made available at the convention kick-off concert by Mid-Town Comics. Morello describes the titled teenage heroine as “part suicide girl, part Joan of Arc, who becomes the Spatacus of whores”. Interior art is by Scott Hepburn, with a special convention variant cover rendered by a SkeletonPete fave, Shepard Fairey.
