It’s Friday and the bigger panels are just starting to get underway. Throughout the rest of the day expect bigger and better information to start tweeting out of the myriad of panels as well as the show floor. There’s quite literally something for everyone, and I am only covering a mere fraction of what is out there. It only gets better from here on out!
It’s Batfleck … Ahem BATMAN
To sate the appetites of DC fanboys Warner Bros. released a full color headshot of Ben Affleck in his Batman cowl from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. I imagine that we will be seeing quite a bit more of Batfleck before San Diego Comic Con is over.

Thunderbirds Are GO …. Again!!!!!
Unbeknownst to me, WETA has been working on a new Thunderbirds project titled Thunderbirds Are Go! which will be a CGI / Live Action hybrid. Apparently all of the sets will be scaled models and the characters will be full on CGI. Sadly there will be no puppets in this iteration!
WETA had a model of Thunderbird 1 on display on their booth and it is extremely faithful to the original series.
/Film snapped a few pictures of the Thunderbird 1 model in its super-marionation-less glory. The 26-episode first season will be ready for broadcast in 2015. [via /Film]
NAH NAH NAH NAH …. BLURAY!!!!!
After years of bickering between studios the complete 1960′s Batman television series starring Adam West as Batman and Burt Ward as Robin will be coming to Bluray and DVD later this fall. There will be a couple different versions available including a killer set complete with a Batmobile.
SUPERION IS IN FACT SUPERIOR
Hasbro is bringing back combiners in a major way in 2015. Today they unveiled new versions of Menasor and Superion during their panel and they are very faithful to their Generation 1 predecessors. [via TFW2005]
NEW REAL GHOSTBUSTERS ON THE WAY?
During the MattyPalooza Panel there was a not so subtle hint that new version of The Real Ghostbusters action figures would be coming in 2015. I am not so confident in the execution as Mattel really bungled the first Ghostbusters line which tanked due to poor character selection, few accessories, and endless repaints.
