SDCC10: Sideshow Booth

IMG 1922

If you've never been to SDCC, you might not realize the sheer size of the Sideshow Collectibles booth. If you took about a half hour, you might end up seeing everything they have on display. Of course, some of our favorite lines were well represented: Star Wars and G.I. Joe to be specific. They also had several displays showing off the amazing work from Hot Toys.

Booth Favorite: Colonel Hans Landa
Hot Toys surprised us with the unveiling of their Hans Landa 1/6 scale figure from the film Inglorious Basterds. As a fan of the movie, I had thought that we'd only see the Aldo Raine figure and it would be done. But everyone's favorite character will now be immortalized in Hot Toys' amazing style.

SDCC10: Toy Tokyo Booth

IMG 2207

The Toy Tokyo booth was set up in their normal Comic Con spot - along the left hand wall of the convention center. In addition to showing off a bunch of Ron English pieces (that was really a SDCC trend), they had several other show specials.

Booth Favorite: Uglycorn Little Ugly
David and Sun-Min released a mini version of their Uglycorn plush (available at the Uglydoll booth) exclusively through Toy Tokyo. And what's cuter than a big Uglycorn? Well a Little Uglycorn, of course.

SDCC10: Entertainment Earth Booth

IMG 1935

Every time I walked by the Entertainment Earth booth, there seemed to be a line. Obviously, their booth exclusives were extremely popular amongst the Con masses. I was actually able to sneak in and pick up my booth favorite...

Booth Favorite: Jacob and The Man in Black
Being a huge fan of Lost, I had to pick up the first released figures from Bif Bang Pow- Jacob and The Man in Black. While the head sculpts didn't look much like the prototype photos...I still had to pick them up.

SDCC10: I Heart Guts Booth

IMG 1867

If you're a huge fan of plush toys and internal organs (and who out there isn't?), then there was really only one booth for you - I Heart Guts. In addition to plenty of cuddly goodies, they also had t-shirts with the same wittiness of their plush line.

Booth Favorite: Bladder Plush
Well...I had to choose one organ, right? And while sweat glands would have been a perfect choice for Comic Con - they haven't created an I Heart Guts sweat gland yet. So...the second most distinct smell at Comic Con - urine - is stored in the bladder. (actually, urine might be third to fried food)

SDCC10: STRANGEco Booth

IMG 1834

Once again, STRANGEco had a rather impressive San Diego Comic Con setup. In addition to showing off new figure designs from James Jarvis, Mars-1 and Shepard Fairey...this is one of the places where you could check out customs from Mark Nagata (Max Toy Co.).

Booth Favorite: Giant Mars-1 Figures
Who didn't want to pick up an Observer when they were released? Well, if these giant Mars-1 figures see production and release, they'll be on plenty of wish lists.

SDCC10: Gargamel Booth

IMG 2052

The Gargamel Booth had people lined up in front of it about an hour before Comic Con opened on Preview Night. I'm always impressed with how they just set up everything on their table - and people (including myself) flock. This year, they were joined by equally amazing artists Bwana Spoons and Le Merde.

Booth Favorite: Burgerbuns Resins
This might have been the most difficult choice I've had to make. With a company like Gargamel and two of my favorite artists sharing a booth...you could just point to something and it would be my favorite. I chose Le Merde's Burgerbuns resins because you could pick up three little guys for $25.

SDCC10: MINDstyle Booth

IMG 2131

The folks behind MINDstyle appear to be huge fans of boxer Manny Pacquiao...since they released several colorways of his vinyl self. The booth also had several Disney properties as well as a line of NBA Figures.

Booth Favorite: NBA Figures
Even though I give the NBA some flack, I still watch it. And with Upper Deck leaving the vinyl toy realm, someone needed to step up and begin producing some vinyl sports figures. (Although I'm not sure if this is it...)

SDCC10: Mr Toast Booth

IMG 2037

The World of Mr Toast was in full effect with their Comic Con Exclusive Devil Bacon plush. Toast, bacon, candy corn? It sounds like an average breakfast at the Plastic and Plush household.

Booth Favorite: Mr Toast Tron Artwork
Remember my previous post? About Tron? Well, why wouldn't artwork that puts Mr Toast in a Tron-like outfit make my favorite list? How many questions can I ask in a single post?

SDCC10: Dragatomi Booth

IMG 1951

The Dragatomi booth was custom central. If you were looking to pick up a killer custom or small-run handmade piece...there was a pretty good chance it would be found at their booth. This is one booth where you just need to look through our photo gallery to see what we're talking about.

Booth Favorite: Dragatomi Exclusive Tuttz
Argonaut Resins designed a small run of Tuttz figures exclusively for Dragtomi and SDCC. This time around, they went with an orange colorway. And what's not to like about that?

SDCC10: Giant Robot Booth

IMG 1881

Eric Nakamura and the rest of the Giant Robot booth were showing off several of their Comic Con Exclusives: the Giant Robot Big Boss Robot Blind Box Series, David Choe's Munko Blind Box Series and a few special Dehara pieces. In addition, there were signings by David Choe (Thursday and Friday) and David Horvath (Saturday).

Booth Favorite: David Choe's Munko
David Choe's little Munko whale toys are not only cute..actually...they're just really cute.And they're not your typical blind boxed platform toy - look at the different designs and sculpts.
