Back from San Diego Comic-Con 2013: The Haul

25 07 2013

Comic-Con down in San Diego is always a combination of fun and exhaustion. Here’s a few things I snagged.

SDCC Exclusive Dragon Ball Z Saiyan Scouter. This had to be one of the most sought after exclusives courtesy of Bluefin Distribution. Cosplayers rejoice.

Bandai S.H. Figuarts Dragon Ball Z Piccolo Special Color Edition was a Comic-Con exclusive. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Red Ranger got an early release at Comic-Con before hitting retail.

Bluefin was also giving an exclusive Power Ranger Megaforce card that can be used with a Gosei Morpher.

I snagged the exclusive SDCC Shazam action figure from Mattel.

Got my hands on the SDCC Exclusive 6″ Star Wars Black Series Boba Fett with Han Solo in Carbonite. This one was a quick sell out.

To my surprise, Entertainment Earth had Hasbro’s Transformers Masterpiece Soundwave on site. This was a tough one to get but I got in line early on Saturday for $120.

For my cousin, I snagged this Mego-style action figure of Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory TV Show. Featured an exclusive SDCC bag for Sheldon to carry around.

The Plants vs. Zombies booth had a variety of free giveways like an exclusive tote bag, comic,  pins and gummie candies. They had a very cool metallic Pop Vinyl Conehead Zombie figure I had to snag for my nephew.

While not an exclusive, I’ve had the hardest time tracking this figure locally. Nice to have plenty of options at Comic-Con to pick up the Sqaure Enix Play Arts Kai MG Rising Raiden.

To my surprise, 1 dealer had a Hasbro Star Wars Black Series 1 Darth Maul 6″ Action Figure for sale. I’m a big Darth Maul fan and definitely overpaid for this figure ($45).

I’ll be doing video reviews on Piccolo, Red Ranger, Raiden and Darth Maul so stay tuned.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 





R213 SDCC Exclusive Bandai S.H.Figuarts Dragonball Z Super Saiyan Son Gohan Special Color Edition

21 07 2012

Check out the San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive of Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts Dragon Ball Z Super Saiyan Son Gohan. This is the Special Color Edition which sports a much richer color palette. Includes the same accessories as the original version and sold for about $35 at the convention. There’s no doubt this will be a must have and will sell for at least twice what it sold for at Comic-Con.





Kotobukiya SDCC 2012 exclusives – X-23 (Angry Edition) & Storm (White Edition)

16 06 2012

I knew it, I knew it, I knew it. When X-23 first got released I questioned why she was sporting a gentle facial expression. I had a hunch SDCC 2012 might have an angry version of her and I was right. I’m so happy I’m going this year cause she will be the first on my list of exclusives to buy.

Another exclusive being released at SDCC 2012 will be Storm in White Suit variant. The wallet is gonna hurt this year.
