I don’t normally post about custom Vinylmation’s but I really liked Annemarie Brown’s customs based off Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki animated films. Yubaba, “Spirited Away”, Howl & Calcifer, “Howl’s Moving Castle”, Kiki & Jiji (above), “Kiki’s Delivery Service”, Porco, “Porco Rosso”, Mini blue totoro, “My Neightbor Totoro” Mei, “My Neighbor Totoro”, Baby Boh (and Mouse Form) “Spirited Away”, The Baron, “The Cat Returns” Arriety, “The Secret of Arriety”, Ponyo, “Ponyo”, No-Face, “Spirited Away” and San/ Moro (w/ Jr. Kodamas) “Princess Mononoke”. It was very hard to pick out my favorite one but If I had to choose it would be Kiki’s Delivery Service. I love how you can see Jiji in the ear so cute!

Here I have complied (with a little help) a list of the top 20 exclusive San Diego Comic Con toys. These are some of the hottest and the rarest toys in the industry. The resale value on the went through the roof right after the Comic Con. And those lucky to have profited from them or where just lucky enough to have added them to their collection. Left everyone leaving the San Diego Comic Con very happy. The list goes from 1 to 20, 20 being the number 1 toy of SDCC 2012. I hope you enjoy the list it took me decades to do ( not literally) but if you feel something else should have been on the list leave me a comment!
