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.

San Diego Comic-Con 2012: My Haul

18 07 2012

Finally returned from San Diego Comic-Con 2012. Long tiring 5-Day event but I was able to secure some very cool exclusives along with other things I’ve been putting off. First the exclusives.

For my sister I picked up the Toynami Exclusive Hello Kitty Chun Li Edition.

Kotobukiya Exclusive Marvel Bishoujo X-23 (X-Force Edition). This is the one fans wanted cause she’s sporting the angry face.

Hasbro Exclusive Marvel Legends X-Force 3-Pack (Archangel, Psylocke, Wolverine)

Finally after so many Comic-Cons, I finally got a exclusive Comic-Con Shirt. Also found a cool Capsule Corp logo from Stylin Online.

BlueFin’s Exclusive S.H. Figuarts Super Saiyan Son Gohan (Special Color Edition)

Wasn’t planning on getting these until a friend called me while she was in line at the Hasbro booth. These are the exclusive G.I. Joe Jinx action figures.

Now for the other stuff I’ve been waiting to buy in person just never got around to do it.

S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Ryuki and Knight

Square Enix Play Arts Kai Super Street Fighter 4 Cammy

Bandai S.H. Figuarts Akiba Red

Bandai S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Nadeshiko

Bandai Gundam Seed HG 1/144 M1 Astray

And to my surprise, the new TMNT figures for the new Nick Animated series was being sold by a few dealers. Had to get Raphael.

That’s the Haul. Gonna need a few days to rest before I work on video reviews. Stay tuned!

San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Want List

9 06 2012

In about a month from now, I’ll be down in San Diego once again for Comic-Con. It’s a crazy weekend of constant standing or walking around for conventions exclusives. I’ll have to remember to wear very comfortable shoes. For once I’m not too worried about getting what I want this year. The big dealers: Hasbro and Mattel, have always posted the majority of their exclusives to their online stores days after the Con for the public to buy at convention prices. The smaller companies are the more important to visit at the Con.

I went through the entire list of SDCC 2012 exclusives and my want list that I really need to pick up at the Con is pretty small (Thank God).

Kotobukiya DC Comics Huntress Bishoujo Statue. Not exactly sure if this is a SDCC exclusive but a few online sources report that she is. She’ll be the first figure I pick up.

Hasbro Marvel Legends Uncanny X-Force (Archangel, Psylocke, Wolverine). How bad ass is this box set? Features 3 awesome characters in my favorite versions of their costumes. Don’t want to gamble on this one being sold online after the Con so I’ll hunting this down while I’m attending.

Bandai S.H. Figuarts Supar Saiyan Gohan Special Color Edition. I already own the 1st version which has a much low key, manga style color palette. You figure I’d be very happy about just staying with that version but come on…I’m a diehard DBZ Fan. The Special Color Edition will have more saturated colors and resemble the anime palette more so there’s a good chance I’ll be picking this version.

Hasbro G.I. Joe Jinx. I love me some G.I. Joe ninjas. Jinx will have 2 different versions available: a classic red and a movie version. I’d like to get this at the Con but I’m OK with pass on her and buying her at http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com

For now that’s my want list. Chances are I will buy other toys while I’m there that aren’t exclusives.

And of course, there’s a good chance I’ll be doing video reviews on them too.
