TZ News Flash: William Shatner action figure!!!!!!



Bif Bang Pow! has announced another Comic Con exclusive to flank their already-announced Icons of The Twilight Zone bobblehead, and this one's a doozy.

William Shatner. The Shat. Captain James T. Kirk. T.J. Hooker. Denny Crane. And, for our purposes here, Don Carter from season two's "Nick of Time" and, more famously, Bob Wilson from season five's "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet." Bif Bang Pow! has already given us a bobblehead of the diabolical Mystic Seer fortune-telling machine from "Nick of Time" (and will be bringing us a fully-functioning life-size replica later this year), plus they gave us The Gremlin from "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" in both action figure and bobblehead form. Shatner is the link between these two episodes. And now, the circle will be complete.



Okay, so one action figure, two distinct outfits with accessories (if there was ever a reason to buy two of something, this is it!). Shatner himself approved the head sculpt, so you just know it'll rock (it's hard to judge it without some multiple-angle closeups). And just look at that adorable little Mystic Seer! This gives me hope that maybe we'll get an Agnes Moorhead figure with tiny little Invaders....

LOVE the box! Man.... Bif Bang Pow! is really stepping up the Comic Con exclusives this year....

Wanna pre-order it? Go here.
