No, this is not April 1st, so it’s all true. Valiant Entertainment has partnered with mega toy company Build-a-Bear to create an adorable version of their legacy character Bloodshot, who is also the subject of Valiant’s first feature film with Sony. And it will be an exclusive at NYCC ’17 in October.
This will be a first-of-its-kind “Bloodshot Bear” debuting at New York Comic Con 2017. The limited-edition “Bloodshot Bear” is based on the Valiant superhero next seen on September 20th in new series Bloodshot Salvation #1 by New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire and artists Lewis LaRosa and Mico Suayan.
“Bloodshot Bear” will be strictly limited to 250 pieces and only be available at Valiant Entertainment’s New York Comic Con booth (#1635) from Thursday, October 5th through Sunday, October 8th while supplies last.
Priced at $40, this cuddly, buttercream-colored companion comes complete with an official Bloodshot logo t-shirt, collectible carrying case, and an exclusive Bloodshot Salvation #1 Bear Photo Variant.
There’s even an awesome “handbook entry” for this guy:
Created by Kevin VanHook, Don Perlin, and Bob Layton in 1992, Bloodshot is featured in 100 issues published and lifetime sales of more than 7 million copies in multiple languages around the world. After returning with a sold-out new series in 2012, Bloodshot will soon make his big-screen debut in a feature film adaption from Sony Pictures, directed by special effects master Dave Wilson (Avengers: Age of Ultron), written by Academy Award nominee Eric Heisserer (Arrival), and executive produced by Neal H. Moritz and Toby Jaffe (The Fast and the Furious franchise) for Original Film and Dinesh Shamdasani for Valiant Entertainment.
