San Diego Comic Con
Mattel announced its 2013 San Diego Comic-Con exclusive, a six-inch Batusi Batman Figure. This figure comes with the recent news from Warner Bros. Consumer Products which officially launched the highly anticipated Batman Classic Television Series licensing program. What’s cool about this piece is the window-box artwork sporting the classic 1960’s DC Comics Batman inspired by television show created by popular graphic artist SHAG.
Really badges were up for sale for the 2013 San Diego Comic Con? that’s nuts this convention just keeps getting bigger and bigger. The convention just ended and pre-sale tickets for those who attended are up for grabs already! personally I think they should give people that didn’t get the chance to go more of an opportunity. Even getting the media pass you have to jump through hoops. This all for some reason is just not sitting right and seems pretty preposterous on SDCC, but then again it is just industry hype so what do you expect? Update, 8:58 a.m. Pacific: About an hour in, it looks like Friday-only and Saturday-only passes are gone as well. Update, 9:19 a.m. Pacific: And preregistration is over. Too much hype. Did anyone already get your ticket? if not you will be able to get it early 2013 with everyone else.
Here is a great picture I found to get people hyped about the San Diego Comic Con. They propped a huge Finn head, from the hit series Adventure Time from the Cartoon Network, on top of the convention center to promote the event. Pretty cool!
So many exclusive toys will be dropping at this years SDCC. I will be doing a bunch of post featuring exclusives leading up the event I am totally bummed out that I will not be going to this year. First toy I want to share is the My Little Pony exclusive. Habro produces a different pony every year. The 2012 pony is inspired by the Hub series My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic. This Pegasus pony (pictures) is cutie marked bubbles. The pony will sell for $19.99 USD at San Diego Comic-Con and this year’s My Little Pony Fair and Convention in Orlando. If you wont be able to make it either event there will be a limited amount available at hasbrotoyshop.com after both conventions. Check out more pictures below.
