SDCC 2008: Sideshow Collectibles

Img_5197

The Sideshow booth is always one that I venture by with guarded anticipation...it's mostly guarded because I know the old bank account will be taking a hit in the coming months.  This year, they announced what might be my favorite figure in their Star Wars line: the Rebel Fleet Commander (pictured above).

They also revealed that they will be producing Stormtrooper and Darth Vader figures (the previous ones they carried were from Medicom).  And speaking of Medicom, they will be releasing the above pictured Jawa VCD, which appears to be in scale with the 1:6 scale line.

Img_5169

If you're a fan of Hellboy, then you probably found your way to the Mezco Toyz booth.  Mezco has the Hellboy II film license and they've put it to good use with a number of action figure based lines.

And as you can see above, they'll also be producing a 7" action figure line for the film The Spirit.

SDCC 2008: Gargamel

Img_5028

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.

SDCC 2008: Supermodified Studios

Img_5163

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.

SDCC 2008: Go Hero

Img_5041

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.

Img_5040

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?

SDCC 2008: Rocket World

Img_5114

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.

Img_5046

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.

SDCC 2008: Shocker Toys

Img_5219

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.

SDCC 2008: StolleArt

Img_5246

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).

Img_5249

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.

SDCC 2008: Hi-Fructose

Img_5091

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.
