SDCC 2008: DKE Toys

Yes. It’s been over a week since San Diego Comic Con, but we completely forgot about the DKE Toys booth. And that’s pretty tough, because they had one of the largest and most impressive displays. If you’re not familiar with…

SDCC 2008: MINDstyle

While MINDstyle had a number of vinyl pieces in their glass display cases, we were looking for Jim Henson’s Fraggle Rock figures. There were only mini figures (no larger vinyl pieces), but it’s still something. And there were a number…

SDCC 2008: Super7

If I had hit the lottery right before Comic Con, the first place I would have hit was Super7…where I would by one of each thing they were selling. Unfortunately, I didn’t win. But I did pick up a SDCC…

SDCC 2008: ToyQube

ToyQube was back at their corner booth with a number of exclusives, new figures and prototypes. The MAD’L Ninja and 10″ Blue Glow-in-the-Dark MAD’L were both popular picks. They were also showing off the prototype for Keith Poon’s Hammerhead Sharky….

SDCC 2008: Cardboard Spaceship

Cardboard Spaceship was in the Cultyard at Comic Con with a number of SDCC Exclusives. The hand cast Hello, Brute lineup – The Klepties – was impressive. The booth also was the first chance you had at picking up the…

SDCC 2008: STRANGEco

The line for STRANGEco’s SDCC colorway Vivisect Playset set was one of the longer (and more surprising) at the show. But we were diggin’ Greg “Craola” Simkins’ Cap’n Rotnclaw. I might have to wait until the red (more crab-like) colorway…

SDCC 2008: Kidrobot

Much of the scuttlebutt around the Kidrobot booth was about Joe Ledbetter’s newest release…the SDCC Exclusive Lava Unicornasaurus. But while everyone was waiting in line for that one, we were more impressed by Paul Pope’s The Masked Karimbah. And if…

SDCC 2008: Munky King

At Comic Con, the Munky King booth is always busy with artist signings. As far as exclusives, the all black Koibito (which appears to be part fish, part man) might have been the creepiest. The Monkey King (Metal Edition) and…

SDCC 2008: Conduct Happiness

One of the more surprisingly busy booths in the Cultyard, was one I had never heard of. Conduct Happiness had their Pea plush and accompanying attire on display. And much like the Tokidoki booth, the hipster girls flocked.

SDCC 2008: Toy Tokyo

We walked by the Toy Tokyo booth just in time to witness fans flocking around Erick Scarecrow to have him sign their SDCC Exclusive Sandstorm Kissaki vinyl. I barely made it out of there alright. But I did see one…

SDCC 2008: Sideshow Collectibles

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…

SDCC 2008: Mezco Toyz

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…
