Anybody out there not have great memories of the Previews catalog at their local comics shop? DST has already released a look at what’s to come to comic shop owners via the massive mag, and now we’ve got the list of solicitations for August.
Keep in mind while you read this, that although these items are in the August edition of the book, they’re not scheduled to actually ship till early in 2015. While you can’t buy any of this awesome stuff right now though, you can definitely order it up at your local comics shop and secure yours right this very second.
My picks- that Frank Gorshin Riddler, the Enterprise (did you expect something different?), and the Lost in Space B9 robot. That things sounds too cool for school. Have a peek at the full list below.
- Lost In Space Electronic Lights & Sounds B9 Robot – Danger, Will Robinson! DST is known for their incredibly detailed electronic cars and starships, and now they’ve built their first-ever electronic robot! This 10-inch rendition of B9, the friendly helper robot from Lost in Space, features lights and sounds taken straight from the classic sci-fi TV show. Lights on his head and chest blink constantly while B9 is on, and additional lights and dialogue are triggered with the push of a button, including “I will accompany you, you may need protection,” “Cannot compute, programming data insufficient,” and his famous cries of “Danger!” You can also manually raise and lower his head, open and close his claws, extend his arms and turn his torso to the left and right. He even has wheels so you can roll him around! Comes packaged in full-color window box with try-me feature. Coming in 2015! (SRP: $49.99, item #AUG142281) http://www.diamondselecttoys.
- Batman Classic TV Series Riddler Bust – Riddle me this, riddle me thus — who will be the next Batman TV bust? The Riddler, as played by Frank Gorshin, is the fourth in DST’s line of resin busts based on the Batman Classic TV Show! Joining the Joker in the ranks of Batman’s greatest foes, this bust of an unmasked, unhinged Riddler measures approximately 6 inches tall atop a base inspired by the show’s famous opening animation. It’s the answer to what to get if you’re a Batman fan! Packaged in a full-color box. Designed by Barry Bradfield! Sculpted by Jean St. Jean! Coming this winter!

- Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back Cock-Knocker Retro Action Figure – Originally made in 2001 for the release of the Bluntman & Chronic movie, this 8-inch, cloth-costumed figure of Cock-Knocker was believed lost forever… until now! Rescued from the DST warehouse and being sold for the first time anywhere, Cock-Knocker is in-scale to Bluntman & Chronic, has one giant fist and an energy sword, and is the missing piece in any Bluntfan’s retro-style figure collection!
