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.

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

One Week to Go before PreReg ends, folks! If you haven't already signed up for Dairycon 2012, you may well consider doing so after this. Save yourself a bit of regret & fill out your PreReg Form TODAY!
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!
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....
There's only one week to go! Register Today!
