The biggest hit of San Diego Comic Con’s Preview Night is the mad dash to get as many exclusive toys and swag as possible. With over a hundred things to choose from, it can be overwhelming. Here’s my top 10 picks for what to look for this year.
Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo Series Black Widow w/ Hawkeye Mask – $65.00 (Booth #3345)
Action Figure XPress will have this beauty up for sale. A nice tie-in to the Avengers movie franchise, though I’d personally like to see her with Bucky’s gun.
Hasbro’s G.I. Joe H.I.S.S. Tank Vehicle w/ Shockwave Deco, Destro and B.A.T Special Edition Pack – $64.99 (Booth #3329)
Returning with another great cross over, Hasbro has given the G.I. Joe world a Decepticon makeover. The Shockwave tank is worth the price tag alone.
Dana as Zuul from Mattel – $25.00 (Booth #3029)
There is no Dana, only Zuul! The new Dana action figure comes with two interchangeable lower halves so she can lounge on the altar or stand around all day long.
Adventure Time’s Fiona and Finn 2″ Figure Set – $15.00 (Booth #2343)
What time is it? Oh come on, you know the rest. From the popular gender-swap episode, Fiona gets her own figure complete with male counterpart, Finn!
Walking Dead Michonne from Skybound – $25.00 (Booth #2729)
One of the most anticipated characters from the upcoming third season of The Walking Dead. Now you can hack and slash zombies apart with your very own Michonne.
Hasbro’s My Little Pony “Derpy Hooves” – $19.99 (Booth #3329)
Every pony’s favorite pony. Derpy Hooves makes an exclusive appearance at San Diego. No word yet if they will censor her fan-given name.
S.H.I.E.L.D. Hellicarrier by Hasbro – $129.99 (Booth #3329)
Hasbro has all the good toys this year. Nick Fury’s private base is a massive 46″ long by 17.5″ wide, has nine rocket launchers, plus a pair of 3.5″ Captain America and Maria Hill figures, both painted in the Avengers movie style.
Jun Planning’s Batman: The Dark Knight Rises and Wonder Woman Pullip Dolls – $149.00 each (Booth #4150)
If large eyed Japanese dolls are your thing, Pullip has some oh so kawaii figures for you. Batman, in his stylish Rises outfit and looking oh so uuuguuuu (I believe that is super cute and adorable in baby / Tumblr speak). Wonder Woman looks tough as nails and super adorable.
Mattel’s Girls of Gotham Polly Pocket Dolls – $19.99 (Booth #3029)
Gotham’s favorite bad girls shrunk down for all your pint sized adventures.
Entertainment Earth’s Bloody Brock Sampson – $15.00 (Booth #2343)
From Adult Swim’s popular Venture Bros. show comes Brock Sampson, complete with bowie knife and the blood of a fresh kill.
