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.

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.

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).
