Isn't this just DC Infinite Heroes Commissioner Gordon?

The only other custom I've seen of this guy is Zobovor's, made from a J. Jonah Jameson figure, but the pics of it are dead on his site.

Now, while this guy could've used some resculpting to make him look a bit less like a younger Commissioner Gordon, it does seem more appropriate for human TF characters to be in scale with 3.75" Joe and Marvel Legends figures. Has there been one in that scale of Tony Stark in a 3-piece suit instead of armor? That'd actually be more appropriate, since ol' G.B. was basically Tony without the alter-ego or substance abuse. No offense to Bob Budianski, of course; Blackrock is still among the best recurring human characters created for TF fiction. The little touch that makes Leadfoot the greatest entrant in the PCC line IMHO is his being sponsored by Blackrock Oil, so I'd say G.B. getting this sort of appreciation is long overdue, but coincides nicely with IDW reprinting his early appearances over the next year.

This may be a great alternative to BotCon for those of us who can't go. It does kinda suck it's the same weekend though...

Yep. Some repainting, but otherwise a 1:1 mold copy. http://www.cooltoyreview.com/Mattel_DCIH_Gordon.asp

Somebody transfer the fundings of Botcon to Dairycon, their exclusives are much better!

I noticed the human figure G.B Blackrock's toy hair is parted to different sides in various pics. one pic show the human toy with hair parted to the right side. the other pic shows the human G.B Blackrock toy hair parted to the left side. I'm gonna guess the dairycon crew members used some photo shop program & flipped/rotated the pics.

Dairycon Staffers today revealed what's in-store for those who PreRegister for the Con:

IN ADDITION to the previously announced Barn, NeoKnight, & Cosmoo (Seen at http://dairylandtransfans.com/2012fig.html ), we have an additional FIVE figures that will be available at this year's Dairycon Convention!


The Future Dairycons!
http://dairylandtransfans.com/2012fig2a.html

Awesum Possum

Rally Rhino

Burning Monkey

Battle Bat

The Cracker




Oh. My. God. *FIVE* Figures?

Dairycon Staffers confirmed that, yes, there will be FIVE figures available to PreRegistrants who sign up for Dairycon.

No further information was given when we asked about how these would come (in a boxset, packaged individually, etc), however, they did say this: "Originally, the 'Battle Bat' figure was given (to another show) as our foreign market exclusive, and was not intended to be available at Dairycon. However, since there is Fan Demand for it, we will do our best to make sure that this figure is also available here as well."

With the previous reveals of Barn, CosMoo, and NeoKnight, seeing FIVE MORE figures at Dairycon is just... it's just....

Wow.

There's only one week to go! Register Today!
