The World’s Greatest Toy Store continues its profound partnership with Entertainment Earth at this year’s annual Comic-Con International in San Diego, and will no doubt contribute to the euphoria of the participating action figure and comic book enthusiasts. In honor of the show’s forty-second year, and the company’s thrilling third year in attendance, from Wednesday, July 20 through Sunday, July 24
, Toys“R”Us will offer an extraordinary extravaganza of official San Diego Comic-Con merchandise, including a exclusive DCU vs. MOTU- Bizarro vs. Battle Armor Faker 2-pack from Mattel
Combining two beloved franchises, DC Universe Classics vs. Masters of the Universe Classics, this “Bizarro vs. Battle Armor Faker” 2-Pack set brings iconic mirror image baddies together for the first time! Featuring a dastardly duo of villainy – The Man of Steel’s inverted nemesis and The Most Powerful Man in the Universe’s evil, robotic duplicate – fans can now battle for doppelganger supremacy of Metropolis and Eternia! The set contains Bizarro and Battle Armor Faker figures, accessories, comic book reprint packaging, as well as an exclusive mini-poster.
Created to be a duplicate of Superman, Bizarro is proof positive that things don’t always work out the way they’re supposed to. He has caused plenty of trouble for Superman, sometimes "teaming up" with villains who take advantage of his limited intellect. Heroes who underestimate Bizarro, however, are soon reminded that, like Superman, he possesses a formidable array of superpowers. There’s only one thing you can count on with Bizarro; at every turn, he’ll insist on doing the opposite of Superman.
"Evil Robot of Skeletor"
Originally built by Man-At-Arms to cover for He-Man when Prince Adam is needed, Faker was abandoned in the royal junkyard after his first mission and salvaged by the evil warrior Tri-Klops. At the request of Skeletor, Faker was reprogrammed to replace He-Man and convince the people of Eternia that He-Man had betrayed King Randor and turned to evil.
MOTU fans, the Faker figure in this set isn’t just any old Faker… it’s an all-new Battle Armor Faker! He includes three interchangeable chest plates showing "no damage," "one damage hit" and "two damage hits." This is HUGE news – we know you’ve been asking for a Battle Armor Faker for more than 20 years!
This dastardly duo may be a couple of duplicates, but the 2-pack is the real deal. It’s bound to go fast, though, so be sure to make the Entertainment Earth booth one of your first stops!
