Where: Comic-Con International: San Diego, Room 25ABC

What: Hear what’s now, new and next for our favorite action figures! The panel will offer sneak peeks at future toys and attendees can ask questions of ‘team green’ members who’ve worked on all three incarnations of the Turtles since their debut decades ago.

Exclusive Shredder Action Figure

Playmates Toys and Nickelodeon will also be debuting a special Comic-Con edition Shredder action figure, which will be on sale in Nickelodeon’s booth – # 4113. Standing at a height of 5.75 inches tall, the 2013 Comic Con Edition Shredder is ready for battle. Protected by his vacuum metallized razor-sharp armor and helmet, Shredder stands on his customized sewer lid base looking for revenge. Packed in his one of a kind, four color closed box, this figure is highly collectible with only limited quantities available.


Playmates has confirmed to us that the figure will be available online after the convention:

Hi Stephan,

A limited number will be made available for a limited time after Comic Con.

A.C. Farley is Currently Accepting Commissions

This doesn’t happen but once in a great while.

Craig “A.C.” Farley, renowned Mirage artist, is now accepting commissions. Craig posted a message on his facebook page about it, and asked that I spread the word:

“Hi. If anyone ever wanted me to do any sketches or any art at all, this is the time to get it. I have some time on my hands. I’m not saying I’ll do anything at all. I’ll do my job on whatever it is, and do it right.

I can be reached at or FB or Pony Express, any way at all. 411 will work on me too. I don’t have any work for now. Blah. I’ll do a nice con type sketch for $40. I’ll still put my heart into it even for that. If folks have a budget for other kinds of things, I’ll work things out with them and make some nice stuff.”

From me to you. If you don’t take advantage of this opportunity, you’re a big dumb idiot.
