    SDCC exclusive DCU v MotUC 2 pack from TRU

    On toynewsi!

    "The World’s Greatest Toy Store continues its profound partnership with Entertainment Earth at this year’s annual Comic-Con International in San Diego, and will no doubt contribute to the euphoria of the participating action figure and comic book enthusiasts. In honor of the show’s forty-second year, and the company’s thrilling third year in attendance, from Wednesday, July 20 through Sunday, July 24, Toys“R”Us will offer an extraordinary extravaganza of official San Diego Comic-Con merchandise, including a exclusive DCU vs. MOTU- Bizarro vs. Battle Armor Faker 2-pack from Mattel.

    Combining two beloved franchises, DC Universe Classics vs. Masters of the Universe Classics, this “Bizarro vs. Battle Armor Faker” 2-Pack set brings iconic mirror image baddies together for the first time! Featuring a dastardly duo of villainy – The Man of Steel’s inverted nemesis and The Most Powerful Man in the Universe’s evil, robotic duplicate – fans can now battle for doppelganger supremacy of Metropolis and Eternia! The set contains Bizarro and Battle Armor Faker figures, accessories, comic book reprint packaging, as well as an exclusive mini-poster.

    Continuing last year’s magnificent merge with Entertainment Earth, every Toys“R”Us Comic-Con exclusive will be available at Entertainment Earth Booth #2343.

    Fans who are unable to attend the show can still purchase the exclusive Toys“R”Us San Diego Comic-Con merchandise online at Toysrus.com/comiccon2011 starting Thursday, July 21. However, there is a limited number of each item, so fans should visit Entertainment Earth at booth #2343 or Toysrus.com/comiccon2011 early to purchase the below action figures.

    All Toys“R”Us San Diego Comic-Con exclusives are limited editions and are available on a first-come, first served basis.

    See hi-res images below of the figure."

    Wow... BA Faker looks so plain.

    I think the BA Faker custom figure (or was it a Photoshop work ?) some member posted here several months ago was MUCH better than the official thing.

    I hope this is not one of their "big" announcements.

    For me, it will be a pass on this one...


    P.S. : It also seems the "art" was not improved. It's actually nice to get some reveal BEFORE SDCC starts... at least, it breaks the lack of news.

    Yeah for some reason just putting Battle Armor Skeletors armor on Faker would look better imho

    I hope this is not one of their "big" announcements.

    For me, it will be a pass on this one...
    Its not being sold at the MattyCollector/Mattel both so its not a Mattel reveal now is it

    Wow...not sure what to say. lol.
    Faker looks pretty cool, although he looks like he has the regular abs, which is weird for a Battle Armor figure.
    But I'm guessing this is only available to Americans.

    Battle Armor Faker looks pretty sweet...I'm betting this is just a sample though, and the actual figure will have smooth, orange abs...just like Snooki.

    This is neat and I probably will buy it...but...why is Faker missing the "tummy shield" and orange paint under his armour? BA He-Man and Skeletor were both done this way. This Faker looks like he was left over and they stuck new armour on him...

    I'd rather have Faker with the magenta armor. This combination isn't all that exciting to me...it's okay though.

    Hopefully TRU will have the other 2-Packs available on their site soon as well.

    The opening post says it's actually a "SDCC first reveal", so please forgive me...

    Pretty cool! Granted, Faker looks a little odd with the armor, but I'm looking forward to the closer pictures.

    I'm glad Toys'R'Us is going to put these SDCC online. I know HasbroToyShop.com has done that before with their SDCC items.

    Probably would take too much 'development'.

    Ehh, easy pass for me. I already got a better version of Bizarro and BA Faker isn't spectacular enough fo rme to spend 30 bucks on that set.

    I have to say that I'm shocked that these things are still being made. Not that I don't like them and that they aren't cool, but they're pretty expensive *for a store environment* and don't really sell. Every TRU seems to have 9k of these things.

    Yeah well technically it is a SDCC reveal, its just not a Mattel one or it would have been revealed on MattyCollector not toynewsi

    I will be interested to see how these sell, Toys R Us has never done this kind of thing before.

    HasbroToyShop does it every year with every exclusive, I wish all the participants of SDCC would do that for the people who can't go!

    I hope TRU.com's servers are nice...

    It's on come July 21st!

    As a TRU Comic-Con exclusive, it doesn't take up slots for Wave 4. It's a bonus figure that's purely optional.
