Oh, man, my wallet is going to be hurting with those lucha figures. Don't know if I can pick only one.

Although, of course, it hurts that there's no Linterna Verde.

Apparently they've been cancelled.

I like the Luchador figures and some of the statues are very high quality, but I'm disappointed that there were no new Lantern collectibles announced.

Yep; unless you count Dawnbreaker (the Metal Batman GL), which I can safely resist.

I'd count it more as another Batman piece, but I'm interested since it's a PVC statue. Those don't break the bank, so I might pick it up.

Yeah I didn't see anything Green Lantern related either. When its over I typically scour Toyark's site because of how they lay out pics of all the booths, and havent found any emerald love yet.

Well, to tide you over, Dave, check out the Hasbro Star Wars stuff. I'm guessing you'll like the retro line (esp. the Tarkin because it's not from original Kenner):

As a rule I don't buy any non vintage Star Wars toys anymore and got rid of almost all of it years ago. But I NEED this Tarkin. I wish the head sculpt wasn't as good as it is to make it feel like it came from 1978, but the coolness of everything else about it is going to force me to buy the board game to get this.

The One:12 Collective booth did display the Hal and John figures we've already seen. I have to say, the head sculpt on the Hal figure is one of the best I've ever seen. The John head sculpt? I don't think it really gets him.

FYI, at SDCC, Pixel Dan found out the Lucha Line is being retooled, not necessarily cancelled:

and here's the interview (just because I don't want to start an SDCC toy thread):
