Yeah, sure, that's a tad bit dramatic, but seeing everyone's pictures from San Diego Comic Con makes me REEEEEEAAALLLLLLLLYYYYYYY wish I was there. Thankfully New York Comic Con is coming up soon or else I would be losing it for real. In the spirit of my depression let's take a look at my top 10 favorite exclusive things that are available to convention goers as we speak.
Despite our best efforts, Sharon and I still have space left on our walls at home. We've determined that we hang our pictures "salon style" which they used to do back in the day, and it is a much better term than "a visual representation of mental illness style", which we had been using prior. These three prints from Kidrobot and artists Brandt Peters, Frank Kozik, and Scott Tolleson would indeed take a place or prominence amongst our collection. Pick em up during each artist's signings at Kidrobot's booth #5645.
That beauty to the right is the comic con exclusive Berry Chocolate Lady Dunny from Junko Mizuno x Kidrobot. What words could I use to express my desire to have one? Just look at it.
Thakfully, Frank Kozik's ice cream dude Jerome is merely debuting at comic con and will make its way online at some point afterwards from Rotofugi x Squibbles Ink, otherwise I might have had to hire myself a toy mule to procure one. If you're there, get one at booth # 5248. If you're not, practice the difficult art of being patient. Trust me, I need all the practice I can get.
Shub Zeroth Misfortune Bags courtesy of Metacrypt and Brian Ewing's booth # 4503 should be on everyone's must-have lists. Not only do you get a sweet sofubi monster toy, you get a bag to carry it in. That's a convention blessing.
Super7 is straight killing it this year with their Skeletor's Lair pop up shop located in their San Diego retail store. You can't go wrong with nostalgia presented in a fresh way, like this Chia Pet Moss Man. Genius!
A soft vinyl Skeletor collaboration with Gargamel? Sign me up, son. I can't wait to see painted and marbled versions of this, which are gonna blow my mind/bank account wide open.
You know its true love when you find an amazing toy at a bargain of a price and that's exactly what Headspace from Luke Chueh and Munky King is. And the best part is that there will be some available on their website at a later date, so stay the hell away from eBay cause all hope is not lost.
JJ Abrams did such a good job with the new Star Trek movies that I'm confident Star Wars is gonna be awesome. I'm so confident, I would totally by this Black Series Storm Trooper without thinking twice.
I'll be more than happy to welcome this 20 inch hologram Darth Vader into my life.
Anything from Weta Workshop. Seriously, have you seen pictures of their booth? It's an event by itself. Everything they do make me weep tears of joy.
