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.

This the Dragon Ball Z Dormatic Diorama Gokou & Gohan Kamehameha PVC Statue by Proovy. The sculpting and painting on this statue is amazing. Stands about 6.5 inches tall and comes with a pre-attached display base. Originally released in 2009, this sold for about $150. Very tough to find these days so good luck finding it for a cheap price.
