The Gargamel Comic Con booth is always one of the easiest to figure out what's available. There's a table, everything is laid out with prices and it's all super-cool Japanese-made kaiju. O...and all of the pieces are really bright.
If you're into big robot figures, then you probably already know about Supermodified Studios and their giant MOD-1 plastic pieces. They were at Comic Con showing off that first series as well as some metallic-looking figures.
Dark Horse had their SDCC Exclusive Domo flocked vinyl figure available for those who love the color yellow. They were showing off the upcoming line of mini (5.5" tall) flocked Domo figures that will be released this coming fall.
Steve Forde and Go Hero were sharing booth space with Rocket World. The Buck Rogers figures were more impressive than my photos. They don't do them justice. It looks like 3 versions will be made available. The red shirt is the regular edition, while the other two will be exclusives.
They also announced two new Ray Harryhausen licenses from the comic books Wrath of the Titans and Sinbad Rogue of Mars. (Both of which were based on films) The piece I am really looking forward to is Bubo, the little mechanical owl. Remember him from the 1981 film Clash of the Titans?
If you walked by the Rocket World booth during their daily toy toss, you had a chance of either being mauled by folks trying to snag free toys...or you had a shot of grabbing an IWG Airborne Series figure. The booth might have had the most new releases on hand.
There were IWG Zipper Pulls, the Airborne Series and 3 different IWG Astro Krieg Flying Saucer Attack Crafts (and the accompanying trio of figures). You could also check out the Rocket World Longboard, a white Polar Bear Creature Hoodie and plenty of prints.
Shocker Toys had a number of SDCC exclusives including their Metalocalypse set, MC Chris Mini and The Maxx. The prototypes for the Indie Spotlight Series 2 were on display. I'm thinking The Tick will be a must-have when it's eventually released.
Scott Tolleson's booth was way down in the 1000's. But if you remembered to journey down there, you were probably excited to see the amazing Throwback Edition of his Tricycle Terror figure. There were only 50 of them available (and since I picked one up...only 49).
Doc Von Block was also available at the booth (only 25 pieces in the run). The resin figure is solid. Toss that guy at someone and you'd probably knock him or her out. Very impressive.
The Hi-Fructose booth was manned by Attaboy and featured a number of his one-off custom figures. There were also artist signings, which included free prints to the first 50 people who purchased a shirt or magazine during the signing.
But if you weren't into free stuff, you always could have picked up some of the already released Hi-Fructose issues, the moleskin sketchbook, resin Qweshun and Pound, customs and tons of artwork.
The Squibbles Ink and Rotofugi booth had a number of Shawnimal products (Caliente Wee Sticker, Ninjatown Macho Micro Plush, Zipper Charms and Plushform). There were also a few new prototypes on display including the Tear Drips (Travis Lampe) and Marshall (64 Colors).
Mimoco might have set a record for the number of Comic Con booths (3) as well as total gigabytes (pushing a million?). Prominently on display was the Star Wars Series 2 line of mimobots. With the recently announced C-3PO, the lineup was set with 4 new characters (The Emperor, Wicket and The Emperor's Royal Guard). They also re-released the R2-D2 8GB mimobot just for the show (250 pieces).
The other big announcement was that Gary Baseman has designed a pair of new mimobots. The MODman (pictured above) and Venison flash drives are sure to be a hit with the kids.
