At San Diego Comic-Con, Cryptozoic will sell its newest tabletop game based on Rick and Morty, the latest DC Lil Bombshells figures, and two collectibles based on Harley Quinn for the first time anywhere:
Rick and Morty: The Pickle Rick Game: This intense 1-2 player game is based on the hugely popular “Pickle Rick” episode of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty. One player plays as Pickle Rick as he tries to escape a heavily armed compound, while the other player takes on the roles of both the Russians and Jaguar as they try to stop him. The Pickle Rick player uses weapons cards to dole out damage and Air Vents to get out of jams as he or she tries to get to the Rooftop. The game includes both Pickle Rick and Jaguar miniatures that are moved across a dynamic board made up of tiles that are constantly being added, rotated, and flipped. Adding to the off-the-wall fun is the custom, collectible Pickle Rick game case that measures approximately 12.75 inches tall and holds all of the game’s components!
DC Lil Bombshells Series 3: The latest release in the popular line of 2.75-inch figures has 10 unique core figures, including Raven, Powergirl, Stargirl, and a new version of Harley Quinn with her two hyenas. Series 3 introduces male figures with Batman, Superman, and The Joker. There are also two rare Noir figures based on fan-favorite characters in the Series 1 release, bringing the total number of unique figures in the set to 12. In addition, there are ultra rare Silver Glitter variants of all 10 core characters for fans to find. Designed by Pedro Astudillo and sculpted by Sam Greenwell, each figure comes in Cryptozoic’s signature blind-reveal tin.
Classic Harley Quinn: This 7-inch vinyl figure pays tribute to the character’s origins by depicting Harley in her classic red-and-black jester costume, the same outfit she wore when she was first introduced in Batman: The Animated Series in 1992. Designed by Pedro Astudillo and sculpted by Anders Ehrenborg, the figure features the character holding her signature mallet behind her back as a playful reminder of the mayhem that always accompanies her presence. It comes packaged in a display-worthy window box. Fans can get their figures signed by Harley Quinn co-creator Paul Dini at Cryptozoic’s booth on Friday!
Harley Quinn Puddin’ Pop Statue: The second in Cryptozoic’s series of hand statues depicts Harley Quinn’s gloved hand holding a lollipop with The Joker’s face on it. The high-end statue measures about 6.25 inches tall, with the lollicop increasing the overall height to approximately 10 inches. The name of the collectible plays off Harley Quinn’s famous nickname for The Joker: “Puddin.’” Sculpted by Mana Studios, each statue is individually hand-numbered, includes a Certificate of Authenticity, and comes packaged inside a full-color closed box. Fans can get their statues signed by Harley Quinn co-creator Paul Dini at Cryptozoic’s booth on Friday!
