    From earlier this week. I totally whiffed on this until just now. Sorry if it's posted elsewhere.

    Being one of the most successful publishers in the U.S. comic book industry -- with a portfolio that includes such well-known characters as the Shadow, Doc Savage and Vampirella -- is apparently not enough for New Jersey-based Dynamite Entertainment. As the company announced at the Dallas Toy Fair, soon it will move into the merchandise business with a new range of toys and games based on its comic output.

    The launch of Dynamite Toys and Games is the end result of a multiyear process, according to Nick Barrucci, the CEO and publisher of Dynamite. "We have been building toward Dynamite Toys and Games for several years, waiting for a special occasion to reenter the 3D market, and our tenth anniversary [in 2014] is that moment," he said in the company's official announcement.

    The first properties to appear via Dynamite's toy line will be Army of Darkness, Vampirella, Red Sonja and The Six Million Dollar Man, with the latter celebrating its 40th anniversary with action figures, a statue and "novelties" from the company. Dynamite will also relaunch the "Eternal Toys" brand for a line of merchandise based on the Chaos Comics characters recently acquired by the company.

    "Our initial plans and projections for action figures, novelties, gaming cards, board games, calendars, T- shirts, plush products and more has everyone involved very excited," Barrucci continued. "Retailers and fans worldwide can expect to see themed promotions moving forward, including such genre-based themes as Dynamite Women, science fiction, fantasy, sword and sorcery, magic, horror and so much more." Products from Dynamite Toys will start appearing in stores in 2014.

      Sounds very ambitious. The story fails to cite a time frame when we can begin to see a rollout of these products, so I'll contain my excitement to a reserved optimism for now. As always, I withhold final judgment until I see the actual products. Unfortunately some of my favorite Dynamite titles and characters would appear to fall into the "less merchandizable" category. Maybe they will surprise me.

        Mine as well. Maybe we'll get lucky and we'll see an Owl or Black Terror piece. It would be a great way to relaunch the PSP line.

          As long as there is a John Carter as well. Equal time, and all that.

            I guess we will see pulp characters once the first (and second?) wave of toys proves to be a success, and this new side of Dynamite's bussiness becomes healthy.

            They could also make 2-packs (or 3-packs or more) for pulp characters, where they mix a more popular\recognizable character together with another one which wouldn't gather much attention going solo.
            For example: Shadow + Black Bat, Green Hornet + Spider etc.

                Is this a good place to reiterate my request for a Jetan set?

                Wouldn't anybody else enjoy a nice game of Martian Chess with Deja Thoris as the Jeddara and John Carter as the Jeddak?
