Seriously, you had me at "The Creators of Robot Chicken" and cemented the deal with mention of Matt Senreich executive producing. THIS MAN DOES NOT MAKE CRAP!! Sadly, the crew is being super-teasey and only offer this short outline on the show...

“SuperMansion”  follows Titanium Rex who leads a “seen-better-days” group of super heroes, “The League of Freedom,” in their increasingly difficult struggle to remain relevant."

Voiced by Emmy®-Award winner Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”), Seth Green (“Family Guy”), Tucker Gilmore (“Frozen”), Heidi Gardner, Tom Root and Matthew Senreich and Zeb Wells (“Robot Chicken”)

Crackle, the television streaming network, announced a series of San Diego Comic-Con activities in support of the upcoming stop-motion animated comedy series from the award-winning Stoopid Buddy Stoodios – including the Comic-Con exclusive debut of the show’s comic book.

SDCC 2015: October Toys Attack Comic-Con with Skeleton Warriors & More

Some companies bring hordes of new, exclusive toys to sell at San Diego Comic-Con...and that's awesome. Some bring a straight up artistic approach to the show and create hand painted plastics you can't find anywhere else and will never see again...and that's cool too. October Toys always makes sure their booth space reflects their kick ass attitude and presents a sampling of everything they've been working on all year, with plenty of those projects available to take home, even if you missed out on a killer Kickstarter like SKELETON WARRIORS!!! Now's your chance to snap up one of the best new toys of the year and shake hands with the fine folks who make dreams come true. Bony, awesome, retro cartoon dreams. My dreams.

THE MARCH CONTINUES!! SIX DAYS from now, the courageous reporters of Idle Hands will be on the floor, wading through nerd-stench to bring you back the most fun happenings of the show. Nickelodeon is always a killer photo opportunity, but after I've taken pictures, I usually run screaming, left I be talked into buying one of their exclusive T Shirts on hand. I STILL HEAR YOU CALLING, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLE T SHIRT THAT MAKES ME LOOK LIKE A TURTLE!!! I resisted. It got awkward. Let's take a quick look at this year's lineup...

SDCC 2015 Preview: MONDO's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The 1st Hellboy & Comic-Con Plans

Ohhh Mondo. You are the ridiculously adorable kitten I can't help petting every time I walk past. Your movie prints are so damn cool, I'm positive there are power ballads out there singing their praises. Now you are getting into toys...and I want you to know...I love you. It's a real love. A manly love. Much like the love I have for pizza and the movie The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. You showed me an art toy rendering of Michelangelo of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and my eyes grew wide with wanting. Then you showed me a massive Iron Giant action figure...and I wept openly...on New Jersey transit. It wasn't pretty sobbing either. It was the kind Peter Griffin rolls away silently from. Now, as San Diego Comic-Con 2015 approaches, we grab some time with Mondo's Creative Director for Toys/Collectibles Brock Otterbacher to see what they'll be unveiling at the biggest geek gathering on Earth...

Build Your Own Game of Thrones Universe with McFarlane Toys

McFarlane Toys schooled a lot of skeptics who gave the side eye to their Walking Dead Construction Sets. Now, they are about to give us the toy line we never knew we were longing for, deep down in our heart of hearts...and when you hear details, your need will be mighty.

Due out just in time for the holiday season (WINTER IS COMING!!!), the McFarlane Game of Thrones Construction Sets will launch with building sets and single blind packs, just like The Walking Dead, no doubt available at Toys R Us and online locations. They'll kick things off with a Banner Pack Assortment featuring the Lannisters and the Starks (naturally!), a Throne Room Set (of course), and blind packed figures (bet you cash money Ned's head comes off)...
