Become An Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D. With Customized Badges At NYCC

Bummed that there won’t be any LEGO content at NYCC in October to drain your wallet? Well it looks like eFX Inc. is stepping up to offer Marvel fans an exclusive collectable many won’t be able to refuse. As of this morning they began taking pre-orders for a replica of Agent Phil Coulson’s S.H.I.E.L.D. badge and if you do pre-order, you’ll have the chance to give them your name, birthdate and a picture to receive a customized S.H.I.E.L.D. ID badge. When I saw it posted on CBR last night, I knew I had to have one, but my mistake was showing my wife… now I’m in for two. This is a great move with Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. set to hit the airwaves just one week from today and you can bet I’ll (or someone will) be posting on that at the time. For those who want them, but won’t be attending NYCC they’ll ship any that don’t get picked up after the fact. At your expense of course, on top of the $50 price tag. Here’s their full info:

NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30 ONLY. PAYMENT IN FULL IS REQUIRED TO PLACE YOUR PRE-ORDER.

NOTE: IF, FOR ANY REASON, YOU FAIL TO PICK-UP YOUR BADGE AND ID AT NYCC, YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL SHIPPING AND HANDLING CHARGES, INCLUDING CALIFORNIA SALES TAX, IF IT IS SHIPPED TO AN ADDRESS IN CALIFORNIA. INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS WILL ALSO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL DUTIES AND TAXES LEVIED BY YOUR COUNTRY. THE PIECES THAT ARE NOT PICKED UP WILL BE SHIPPED AFTER THE CONVENTION.

BY CLICKING THE BOX OF YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF OUR TERMS AND CONDITIONS UPON CHECK OUT, YOU AUTHORIZE eFX TO CHARGE YOUR CARD AUTOMATICALLY WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE, FOR THESE CHARGES.

We will e-mail you the instructions on how to submit your information and photo to us.

With the debut of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC just days away, we are marking this historic occasion with a New York Comic-Con Exclusive Edition of a replica of Phil Coulson’s S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Badge and I.D. Card. The metal badge is made from the original master molds of the screen used badge, and the I.D. card is made from the original digital files. And, it comes in a real leather ID wallet, embossed with the S.H.I.E.L.D. emblem.

As a New York Comic-Con exclusive, fans can join the ranks of S.H.I.E.L.D. – at least, they’ll have the credentials to prove it. (Getting past security may be a whole different matter.) In addition to the replica of this incredible prop, the exclusive convention edition includes a personalized S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent I.D. card.

Beginning Tuesday morning, September 17, at 9 a.m. Pacific time (12 p.m. Eastern) a limited number will be available for pre-order to attendees for pick-up at New York Comic-Con to avoid waiting in line at the convention. We will give you instructions and rules on how to send a photo of yourself, along with your name and birth date, to eFX for their personalized S.H.I.E.L.D. I.D. card. (Personal information will be kept private and will not be sold or used for marketing purposes.)

As a unique collectible or as an early holiday gift, the limited edition of 1,500 pieces of the New York Comic-Con Exclusive Edition ensures that the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. personalized badge will be truly one of a kind!

Each badge is $50. Personalized, pre-order ID cards and badges must be picked up on site during New York Comic-Con (October 10-13) The Exclusive, personalized edition will also be available for purchase on location at the eFX booth (1869)

They’ll be offering some at the booth during the con, but this way you can avoid at least one line and have an opportunity to provide a picture ahead of time with no worry of them running out.

CBR Reveals Two More Marvel Comics LEGO Variant Covers

Uncanny Avengers #12 - LEGO VariantMighty Avengers #1 - LEGO Variant

It’s new comic book day and CBR is celebrating by revealing two more exclusive Marvel Comics LEGO variant covers to help you get over this weeks hump. This time Leonel Castellani has done homages to another Jim Lee cover and Steve Ditko’s “Unmasked by Dr. Octopus!” cover from The Amazing Spider-Man #12. The more I see of these, the more my wallet hurts and I’m beginning to view September through a giddily dreadful delight. These covers will adorn Uncanny Avengers #12 and Mighty Avengers #1, respectively.

I need to call my comic shop.

Updated: A Brand New Day For LEGO Comic Variant Covers

Daredevil #31 - LEGO Spider-man Variant

CBR has hit the Jackpot with an exclusive look at the LEGO variant cover for Daredevil #31, coming to help promote the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes game this September. Big Spidey fan here and even though I wasn’t keen on the whole Brand New Day debacle, I like the cover and will probably just put this up in a frame because I don’t collect Daredevil. The question is; if Spider-man is on the Daredevil cover, does that mean the man without fear will be MIA in the game? As it stands, we’ve seen no new characters that haven’t already appeared in actual plastic. That could be good for fans of those specific figs if we end up with multiple classic cover homages each, but personally I’d rather see some variety. I mean, who doesn’t want to see Rocket Raccoon in minifig form?
Spread the love around Marvel.

Update: Marvel also posted this Variant cover for Nova #8 last night. At this point (which, admittedly it’s still early with only a handful of covers revealed) it seems lucky for Nova that he already has a minifig.
