Flippin' through Previews - August '12

It's time once again to thumb through the toy section of this month's Previews, and see what goodies we can uncover. Scheduled to start shipping in October.

The Ame-Comi toys are being turned into a real comic, and the first issue is on page 123.

MotU fans will be interested in page 136, with The Origin of Skeletor.

DC Direct is still working its way through the Justice League - this time it's Cyborg and Wonder Woman, due November 28. There's also a $90 Darkseid, proving that DCD doesn't understand the market. Go to page 145 to see it for yourself.

So, for only $10 more than the giant Darkseid, you can get a Justice League 7-pack, with 10% of the cost going to charity. That's on page 146.

The original Ame-Comi Catwoman is being repainted again - this time in Christmas colors. See what they're like on page 149.

And page 150 has more Just-Us League of Stupid Heroes offerings: Batman, Robin and the Joker.

Page 160-163 are where you'll find IDW's GI Joe and Transformers comics, and page 168 sees the final issue of Battle Beasts.

All McFarlane's toys are on page 224. Walking Dead, Halo, and a special Hines Ward in Dark Knight Rises uniform.

Marvel Select is offering the best Venom toy ever on page 411: it's got interchangeable heads and hands so you can create four different versions of the evil Spider-Man!

Here's an oddity on page 426: the Create Your Own Superhero Action Figure Kit. It includes three 4" blanks, with lots of different pieces to help you with your customizing.

The Japanese show Transformers Victory is coming to dvd, and you can order it on page 476.

    The Ame-Comi comic is actually being released digitally first and then in print. The first couple of issues are available now on comixology I believe. This is not unlike what DC is doing with Batman Beyond Unlimited where they release the issues online then collect them into a print version monthly.
