Women Wednesday: Wonder Woman Jumbo Coloring & Activity Book 2020

I bought the Wonder Woman Jumbo Coloring & Activity Book 2020 at the local Dollar Tree last week. I'm pretty sure it was published by Bendon to concide with the Wonder Woman 1984 movie, which has been pushed back again to Christmas 2020. The cover is a close up of the Amazon Princess:

The back cover features a bonus cut out of Wonder Woman on horseback with her magic lasso in one hand:

DCeased: Hope At World's End #8 is now out from DC Comics. Bobo the Detective Chimp teams up with Ace the Bat-Hound, Comet the Superhorse and Krypto the Superdog to help and protect Amy from the zombies. This is the best issue by far in the series.

Big Shake Up At DC Comics

From Comics Continuum: DC COMICS' LAYOFFS:

"Roughly one third of DC Comics' editorial ranks are being laid off, according to sources of The Hollywood Reporter. 

"Among those said to be losing their positions are editor-in-chief Bob Harris, senior VP of publishing strategy and support services Hank Kanalz, VP of marketing and creative services Jonah Weiland, VP global publishing initiatives and digital strategy Bobbie Chase, senior story editor Brian Cunningham, and executive editor Mark Doyle, who oversaw the rollout of the Black Label line. 

"Jim Lee remains as the CCO. "The majority of the staff of the streaming service DC Universe has been laid off, a move that had been widely expected as WarnerMedia shifts its focus to new streaming service HBO Max. 

"DC Direct, the company's in-house merchandise and collectibles manufacturer, has been terminated as well."

Correction: Miniature Justice League Figurines

There are actually two miniature Justice League Figurines that Mattel put out and that I picked up at the local Dollar Tree. The 2018 line includes Aquaman, Batman, Flash, Superman and Wonder Woman. The 2019 line includes two different versions of Batman (the classic light blue and gray costume and the black costume with dark gray cape), Flash, Superman and Wonder Woman. The Flash, Superman and Wonder Woman figurines are the same from both years. The 2018 Justice League logo is red while the 2019 logo is blue. I didn't notice the different logos until I was hanging them up on my wall. I'm not sure if there is or will be a 2020 line of the miniature Justice League figurines for I couldn't find any information about them online.

Miniature Joker Figurine

I picked up this Miniature Joker Figurine earlier this week at the local Dollar Tree. He is part of the second Justice League miniatures that Mattel put out in 2019. He stands about 2-3/4" and is leaning on his gold walking stick. His costume is the classic purple suit.

Miniature Dark Batman Figurine

I found this Miniature Dark Batman Figurine at the local Dollar Tree earlier this week. His costume is all black but his cape is dark gray. He stands about 2-3/4" and was produced by Mattel in 2019 as part of the second Justice League line of miniatures. He is different from the first Miniature Batman Figurine and the Miniature Light Batman Figurine.

Miniature Light Batman Figurine

I found the second series of Justice League miniatures at the local Dollar Tree a few days ago. I call this one the miniature light Batman figurine because he is in his classic light blue and gray costume. He is different than the first Miniature Batman Figurine that I picked up, which is from the first series. He is standing and looking to one side instead of looking straight ahead. This was produced by Mattel in 2019 and stands about 2-1/2".

Hershey's DC Super Hero Bar 5 Pack Snack Size Trinity

The local Dollar General had a few of the Hershey's DC Super Hero Bar 5 Pack Snack Size left a few weeks ago. They were not in the candy aisle but on a shelf displaying makings of s'mores. I almost walked right pass them. I was fortunate to grab the Trinity: Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.

The Batman pack had one Aquaman wrapper, two Batman wrappers, one Superman wrapper and one Wonder Woman wrapper. The Superman pack had one Aquaman wrapper, one Batman wrapper, one Cyborg wrapper, one Flash wrapper and one Superman wrapper. The Wonder Woman pack had one Aquaman wrapper, one Batman wrapper, two Cyborg wrappers and one Superman wrapper. No Green Lantern wrappers were found in any of the packs.


The local Walmart's were totally out of the Hershey's DC Super Hero Bar 12 Packs as of last Sunday. I doubt that they will get any more in since this is limited edition. I have yet to find any snack size bags or the numbered regular size bars with the seven individual DC super heroes.

Hot Wheels Batman v Superman 5-Pack 2015

This Hot Wheels Batman v Superman 5-pack from 2015 is another boxed collection that I have scanned. I also have not opened it yet but I'm tempted to. The vehicles included art '11 Dodge Charger R/T (GCPD), '11 Dodge Charger R/T (Metropolis Police), Batmobile, Ultra Rage (Wonder Woman) and Rivited (Superman). Of course, this is a tie to the movie and I'm glad that a Wonder Woman Hot Wheels vehicle made it into the set.
