2006 SDCC: Rocket World

P1030431

Rocket World upsized this year. They have a bigger booth and a number of new products on display (and for sale).  The SDCC exclusive bears - Sun Tzu and Midori - were going fast on preview night.  I've seen the new Yeti and Sasquatch figures first hand, and I must say they are flocking great!  If you're a fan of the IWG line...you'll notice that these 2 figures are a little larger than their cohorts.  In addition to the vinyl figures, Patrick also had his Rocket World Diner Print on sale for $5 (a must-have for IWG fans) and prototypes of his creature hoodies.
