    SDCC Exclusives From DC Comics

    DC Comics has been releasing exculsives for San Diego Comic-Con at the Graphitti Designs booth for a while now and this year seems to hold even more than before. You can see a list of all the great toys that will be available for purchase below.

    DC Collectibles, the high-end toy and collectible line from DC Entertainment, today revealed four “con exclusive” products that will only be available to those attending San Diego Comic-Con on July 18-21. Check out the exciting line-up below!

    The first is Aardman: Superman Action Figure designed by Rich Webber and sculpted by Phil Ramirez. Created by Aardman, the British brains behind “WALLACE AND GROMIT,” is their own unique take on the Man of Steel. He is based on the popular interstitial shorts shown during DC Nation on Cartoon Network. Aardman: Superman is approximately 6.5” tall and is priced at $24.95.

    The second is a three-pack of Super Best Friends Forever Action Figures, designed by Lauren Faust and sculpted by Irene Matar. Super Best Friends Forever is also from the popular interstitial shorts aired during DC Nation on Cartoon Network and they are ready to take care of business! Meet Super Best Friends Forever: Supergirl, Batgirl and Wonder Girl, measuring approximately 6.5”, 5.45” and 6.8” tall, respectively. This three-pack is priced at $49.95.

    The third, Batman Arkham City: Hugo Strange was sculpted by Sam Greenwell. The Hugo Strange Action Figure is based on the designs of the critically acclaimed video game from Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Batman: Arkham City. He measures approximately 6.75” tall and is priced at $29.95.

    The fourth con exclusive is DC Comics’ Superheroes of Green Lantern four-pack. Green Lantern Sinestro and Dex-Starr were sculpted by Robert Lynders and Arkillo and Black Hand were sculpted by Phil Ramirez. Make sure to put the universe’s most fearsome foursome on your must-have list for SDCC; you don’t want to cross this intergalactic quartet! This set is in the 3.75” scale and priced at $49.95. This is the latest in the popular 3.75” con exclusive action figure from DC Collectibles.

    DC Collectibles’ con exclusives will be available for purchase at the Graphitti Designs booth so make sure to stop by!

    It's interesting that these items were first announced near the end of May and just last week DC popped another suprise exclusive for Superman fans to salivate over. I think it's safe to post here now with Man of Steel well into it's release that the most recent and probably final item at the booth will be the Gentle Giants Superman sculpt with black suit standing atop a base skulls.

    This is a very quick scene in the movie and some people didn't even realize the suit was fully black until the release of this statue. Graphitti Designs has a great track record of posting the exclusives on their website shortly after the con is over so keep your fingers crossed that they offer the same option this year.

    Dunkin' Donuts Wants Americans To Stay Fat

    I go to Dunkin' Donuts every morning and a lot of time again in the afternoon. Most all of my attention is turned towards ordering an ice coffee without incident. Although I'm no physical specimen, I don't really get all that excited about eating donuts or bagels. I don't mind an egg & cheese once in awhile, I AM only human.

    What if Dunkin' Donuts decided to confuse me and combine a donut with that egg & cheese with slice or two of bacon for good measure? Enter the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich.

    Starting this Friday, DD fans nationwide can now experience the pure deliciousness of Dunkin’ Donuts Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich. This savory and sweet breakfast treat, which consists of a fried egg and cherrywood-smoked bacon inside a split glazed yeast ring donut for 360 calories, will now be a permanent menu item at participating U.S. DD restaurants

    Damn you Dunkin' Donuts! Do you realize what you've done? Pretty soon high as a kite high school burnouts and liquored up college freshman are going to be demanding crazy creations from the depths of their jumbled minds.

    Chocolate Glazed Donut With Double Bacon.

    Powdered Donut With Ham & Cheese.

    Blueberry Cake Donut With Sausage & Cheddar.

    Awful endless possibilities on our way to being like the giant blubbering floating chair people from WALL-E.  I'll stick to a Medium Ice Coffee; Milk & Sugar. I have enough problems.

    Oklahoma Tornado Survivor Finds Missing Dog On Air

    I was choked up watching this video and I have a heart of stone most of the time. Somehow Barbara Garcia was able to survive threw the devastating storm that demolished Monroe, an Oklahoma City suburb. Unfortunately the grateful to be alive woman lost her house which is crumbled behind her in the video, and her dog.

    During the course of the interview however the hardy schnauzer is found just under the rubble. It's good to see that among the rubble of this natural disaster there are hopeful situations like these.

    Keep Movin' On - A Song Of Encouragement For Boston Marathon Survivors

    Most 3rd and 4th grade girls are playing with dolls or making catty comments about their classmates' hair. Not the fine upstanding 3rd and 4th grade girls from Currey Ingram Academy.  Megan Hamilton (4th grade), Maddie Hogan (3rd grade) and Sasha Mason (4th grade) wanted to make a difference for the survivors of the Boston Marathon, so they put their vocal talents to good use.

    With guidance from their teachers and song writers RC Richmond, Dita Rose, and Eric Vinson the trio wrote and performed a song titled Keep Movin' On. The below video was produced in the Currey Ingram Academy studio by songwriter/teacher Sean Kelly.

    It's nice to see that children have more integrity and maturity than the adults who were looting bars and restaraunts just after bombs went off in the middle of the city killing three and injuring hundreds. If you aren't moved by what these three girls have done then you're not human.

    Sorry Olivia Sprauer, Florida School Doesn't Like Beautiful Women

    Why is America afraid of successful beautiful women? The blue hair male powers that be on all levels of business and politics seem to be very quick to pass judgement on a woman who poses in a "sexy" photo while at the same time hiding that photo under their mattresses.

    26 year old Florida teacher Olivia Sprauer rocked a bikini like a champion for some tasteful modeling photos and she was forced to resign from teaching. I wish I hated beautiful women? The aspiring model posed for photos under the name Victoria James and knew she might have been taking a rist which could cost her the teaching position at Martin County High School.

    "Lots of teachers get fired or asked to resign for the same things I did, I knew I didn't want to come back next year and I knew I wanted to go to grad school so I decided if I made it to the end of the year I would be happy."

    Way to go Principal Alfred Fabrizio. I bet you fired her ass and then kept her photos in the draw so you could stare at her ass. Hypocritical much? The ugly teachers movement has begun.

    "I don't make pornography. I don't open my legs on camera. I take swimsuit glamour style photography. I felt like it would have been nice for my students to finish out the year with me, they trusted me and they made me happy so that aspect of it was sad."

    Don & Bobby Draper Watch Stop the Planet of the Apes, I Want to Get Off!

    This week's Mad Men may have been a series highlight chronicling the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. But the mere fact it featured a scene where Don Draper took his middle child Bobby to Planet of the Apes trumps all the skillful writing and subtle performances reacting to a horrific moment in our country's history. But I can't beguile the Internet, for once.

    It's Planet of the Apes, man! And just like, some blessed soul online has recreated the scene to the tune of Stop the Planet of the Apes, I Want to Get Off! the musical revival from The Simpsons staring C-Movie king Troy McClure.

    Jon Hamm's reactions really sell this.

    GE Goes "Matrix" With New Agent Of Good Commercial

    You know how there are some people who say, "I only liked the first Matrix.", well I didn't like any of them. I didn't care for any of the three films in the series. Red pill, blue pill, who gives a shit. Apparently GE thinks that the general public still identifies with a film series that hasn't even been thought about since 2003. Check out the new "Agent Of Good" TV commercial with Hugo Weaving reprising his role as Agent Smith.

    New CM Punk Shirt Featuring Art from Jill Thompson

    A few hours before Wrestlemania 29 hit the airwaves on Sunday evening, there was buzz going around various in-the-know wrestling sites saying he had a new t-shirt planned to debut at the event. Sure enough Punk came out to face the Undertaker and revealed a nifty new shirt featuring himself in comic art format.

    I was so caught up in the magic Undertaker and CM Punk produced during their match that I completely overlooked that the shirt featured the art of Jill Thompson. Thompson is known from her work on the book Beasts of Burden and she has designed a few WWE shirts previously for superstar Daniel Bryan.

    It shouldn't come as a shock though as CM Punk is very well known as a huge comic fan and even teased a few years ago that he could be coming into Marvel writing his own comic with Thompson taking on art duties. Nothing has come of that yet, but he did pen the forward in the recently released Avengers vs X-Men hardcover. Maybe he could come up with something using a title of one of his nicknames, "The Second City Saint."

    Wrestlemania 29 Results

    The biggest spectacle in sports entertainment took place last night and I must confess myself severely disappointed in what resulted. Out of all the matches only CM Punk vs Undertaker stands out and created something memorable that fans can enjoy. WWE did the best they could to hype up the big Rock vs Cena rematch from last year and the live crowd wasn't all over it. I'm sure the buyrates were high because of the Rock, but hopefully WWE gives us something a little more special and memorable next year.
