SDCC 2012 : Ponies, Aliens and Marvels..Oh my...

As we roll around in thousands of images Team Idle shot at San Diego Comic Con 2012, we thought we'd update you on what is available for your bulging, hungry eyeballs RIGHT NOW!! Click the lead titles for a full gallery of pics for each subject.

My Little Pony: New ponies are always a welcome sight for fans across the pony lands, but at SDCC 2012, the Hasbro folks thought it was time to make some dreams come true. Hearing the cries from the masses for ponies that look more like their cartoon counterparts, Hasbro will be rolling out Mini Collectibles sets of fully sculpted, pastel colored pretties you won't be able to get enough of. On display were an Apple Family Set (with Granny Smith, Big McIntosh & Applejack), a Pony Wedding Set (with Twilight Sparkle, Princess Candace & Shining Armor), and a Cloudsdale Set (with Rainbow Dash, Gilda the Griffon and Wolder Bolts pony.) Each will retail for around $7.99 and hit August 2012.

Super 7 : Just because you make killer art toys doesn't mean you don't love pop culture as much as anyone else at San Diego Comic Con! If Super 7 hadn't proved that with their Star Wars Stormtrooper Super Shogun and promises of a Boba Fett Super Shogun follow up...what will come next will blow your cranium clear off. Transformers Optimus Prime joins the ranks of the Super Shoguns in all his 24 inch retro styled glory alongside Transformers vinyl figures, art prints, drinking glasses and hand screened designer T-shirts. Then..there's the ALIENS!! Super 7 intends to make history by creating the proposed 1979 3 and 3 quarter inch Alien action figure line!!! The lineup tentatively includes Ripley, Dallas, Kane in the Nostromo space suit, Ash and an the Alien. Super 7 says "Utilizing the original prototypes, Super 7 will finally make these "Lost Toys" a reality! Reaction (Retro-Action) Figures are produced exactly the same as the original 70's and 80's action figures, featuring classic sculpting, T-shaped waist and 5 points of articulation."
