We know many movie fans drain their wallets worshipping their favorite characters. For those planning on attending Comic-Con 2008, Film School Rejects wants to help geek men and women win that time honored contest known as who has the biggest movie memorabilia collection?
Feast your eyes on these Comic-Con 2008 exclusives available at the Entertainment Earth booth (click any of the images to go to the item page on Entertainment Earth’s site):
First up, is the greatest of them all. The man, no “The Dude” himself, Jeffery Lebowski! The hero of the The Big Lebowski was played by Jeff Bridges. Bridges was last seen as Obadiah Stane in Iron Man, but we still love him as the white Russian drinking and bowling everyman. The figure even comes with a mini Oriental rug to tie together whatever room you place him in.
The 1980 film of comic hero Flash Gordon was cheesy, but Queen composed the soundtrack and gave it its pulsating opening theme. Famous comic artist Alex Ross designed this realistic Flash movie figure. It goes for $17. Buy it at the con and it comes with a book of his artwork for $25. This exclusive should whet your appetite for a possible Flash Gordon remake from Columbia Pictures. Our Nathan Deen has already written about it here.
While I don’t fancy bobble-heads, this Luke Skywalker version, reminds us that Star Wars: The Clone Wars comes out in August. Check out the latest preview here.
We praise Showtime’s Dexter often at Film School Rejects. Once again, I don’t like bobble-heads, but the blood spatters are fetching. Dexter’s hiding a knife behind his back which makes me afraid he’s going to kill me if I take him home with me. Your results may vary.
Thanks to Film School Rejects and Comic-Con 2008, not only will you get the latest movie and comic news, you’ll have the best looking cluttered apartment on the block.
Stayed tuned for more coverage as we build up to Comic Con 2008, July 24-27 in sunny San Diego!
