NYCC 2014 Wrap-Up


This week, we had the honor to be among the vendors set-up at New York Comic Con (making it our 8th in a row!) and as always it was a great success! We’d like to thank all of those who helped with the set up, working the show floor with us, and then dismantling and bringing everything home. We are so thankful for the hard work, long hours, and extra efforts everyone contributed to make it our best con yet! And more importantly we’d like to thank the various fans and customers who entered our booth – thank you! This small family-run shop from Queens couldn’t be happier to be a part of such an important event in the greatest city there is and sharing the experience with fellow collectors from around the globe.

Check out some of our photos below and happy collecting to you all!

*New* DC Comics Designer Action Figures!

Everyone loves action figures. Especially when they are designed with fullest attention to detail. I have been collecting action figures since I was a kid and one of the most important details to me was that they reflect the character that I like. Batman has always been a tricky character because of his mass appeal to kids and adults alike. Be it Kenner or Mattel, the Batman line of action figures have always had to cater to both sides. The result = many variations of Batman in suits we have never seen him wear. Action figures of The Dark Knight in his actual grey and blues (sometimes all black) come few and far between the countless waves of toys in his 75 year history. With great excitement, DC Collectibles have been producing high quality figures that are perfect for both kids and adults.

Available this week are the brand new Batman action figures. They are part of the DC Collectibles line, same scale with the same amount of articulation, but what sets these apart from others is that they are being produced under the “Designer Series” mantle. The first wave of “Designer Series” figures includes – Batman, Nightwing, Talon, and The Riddler. These four figures are based on the designs of Greg Capullo and sculpted by Jonathan Matthews. For those that are unfamiliar, Greg Capullo is the artist behind the Scott Snyder penned “Batman” title in The New 52. These are sure to be hot figures as Greg Capullo’s work on Batman becomes even more prolific. The Talon action figure stands at 6.75” and is the first figure ever produced of this new, but now classic Batman villain. It should be noted that this figure does come with accessories, including two knives and a miniature Owl mask.

These are going to be a hit with Batman fans and undoubtedly will sell fast. If you are looking for a great Batman action figure and/or are a fan of Greg Capullo then these are the collectibles for you!

Spider-Man Swings in to Royal Collectibles

“Look out, here comes the Spider-Man!”

And here he comes to Royal Collectibles. One of the things we pride ourselves most on at Royal Collectibles is that we truly are your friendly neighborhood comic shop. We do this by maintaining many of the same principles Spider-Man lives by – honesty, integrity, and always being relatable. We make sure we are aware of what’s going on in the comic industry, what’s happening with the latest comic to film productions, and just about every other angle of the superhero industry. We also, and more importantly, like to make sure we are always able to service the casual to the die hard fan boys needs.

Spider-Man Merchandise at Royal Collectibles

As of recent, we’ve been showcasing all of our Captain America merchandise, and with the release of the film we’ve found it to be quite successful. So, currently we have highlighted some of the best of Spidey – ranging from toys, comics, graphic novels, and other nice little memorabilia. Something to pay attention to is that we have in stock Hot Toy’s The Amazing Spider-Man by Sideshow.


Hot Toys Amazing Spider-Man Deluxe Figure


It is an excellent Spider-Man figure. The sculpt is absolutely life-like and sports an uncanny resemblance to Andrew Garfield (all thanks to a changeable head). The costume pays attention to every detail, including the pattern on the latest suit all the way down to the Asics sneaker boots. This piece is a must have for any Spider-Man fan and is worth every cent. You won’t be disappointed and while they are still available and priced at a “more bang for your buck” amount, don’t wait to purchase. These will surely make anyone’s spider-sense tingle.

For someone on the look out for something reflecting The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie, we have plenty of the Hasbro action figure assortment. We have a kid-friendly set of figures and a more collector worthy set. It’s worth pointing out that Habro’s Marvel Legends action figure line has been one of the hottest toys this season. They have been very hard to come by, especially Electro. It is with great pride that I can say that there is no need to get caught in a web searching for these. Royal Collectibles has them! They are limited, but have been perfectly designed and are great for kids and adults. I personally have all of them and think that they are the best Hasbro has offered.

Looking to Spruce Up Your Bat-Cave?

Batman, The Dark Knight, The Caped Crusader, all names that resonate with men, women, and children alike. 75 years ago, Bob Kane gave the world one of the most enduring, most inspiring, and all around one of the greatest comic book characters in the history of comic books. Warner Bros. and DC Comics has many great things in store for Bat fans throughout the year; but Royal Collectibles is your one stop hub for all great and unique Batman memorabilia.

IMG_20140424_190842Check out our 1/6 Scale Batmobile by Hot Toys! Can fit a 12″ Batman figure inside!

Located in our very own Batcave, you will find some of the best Batman action figures that have ever graced store shelves. Kenner’s “Batman Returns”, “Batman Forever”, “Batman: The Animated Series”, and other Batman products reflecting the comics, cartoons, and films. Most of the figures and toys produced for “Batman: The Animated Series” have become very collectible over the past years as Paul Dini and Bruce Timm’s work have become more recognized and prolific for giving fans and non fans what many people feel is the definitive take on The Dark Knight.


 Action figures and toys based on these beloved designs are getting harder to come by. My recommendation: get them quicker than Batman gets to the top of the GCPD at the first sight of the Bat signal. They are all reasonably priced and will be excellent additions to your collection, or just great pieces to have to commemorate an icon.

If you’re on the market for more current Bat related items, DC Collectibles has been producing a fine assortment of Black & White Batman statues. What makes each statue truly special is that they are designed by artists who have left their personal stamp on the Batman. Be it Jim Lee, Greg Capullo, or even a Batman sculpt based on the design of the hit “Arkham City/ Arkham Origins” costume, you’ll find it. As an owner of one myself, I must say that they are really beautiful. For someone just getting into collectibles, or for someone that just wants a nice keepsake piece reflecting their favorite Batman, this line of statues is a perfect starting point. You are bound to find a design that resonates with your tastes and you will not be disappointed with the quality in which these have been made!


Batman Black & White by Sean Murphy

There are so many more Batman products that I could think of, but how about you stop by the store and see for yourself what we have. I promise you won’t leave empty handed. After all, maybe you’re on the market for Superman instead.
