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.

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).
