IMG_9015

Merit International's San Diego Comic Con booth featured figures are artwork from Dez Einswell's Doodle Barn. While we've seen several of the products before, the little figures in the glass cans were something new to me.

The Sideshow booth was yet again one of the busiest at San Diego Comic Con. The booth featured a number of popular Sideshow lines (Star Wars, G.I. Joe and Indiana Jones), a custom Stormtrooper display and several new Hot Toys products. We'll be providing more details on the new product announcements in the coming days.

If you were looking to be greeted by a topless Marilyn Monroe with Mickey Mouse...accoutrements, you'd obviously want to walk to the aisle right up against the wall at SDCC. If you've ever been to Comic Con before, you'll know that's where you can find the Toy Tokyo booth...which holds a treasure trove of collectible figures.

Tonner Twilight Dolls

On Saturday of Comic Con, we strolled by the Tonner booth to find that they had surprisingly unveiled three new Twilight Tonner Character Figures - Laurent, James and Victoria. I only had my cell phone with me, so the photos aren't top notch...but you get the idea.

The Cardboard Spaceship San Diego Comic Con booth had a bunch of amazing customs from artist Scribe. There were also several signings at the booth as well as small run limited edition resin releases.

SDCC 2009: Munky King

The Holy Grail of San Diego Comic Con might have been the Bronze Koibito at the Munky King booth. Limited to only 30 pieces, your chances are snagging one were slim. But t hey had several consolation prizes...and a bunch of booth signings.

If you saw our pre-SDCC coverage, you probably noticed the number of exclusives that would be at the Super7 booth. But one of them garnered the most interest was Big Sal by Kathie Olivas and Brandt Peters.

SDCC 2009: Grass Hut

IMG_9254

The Grass Hut booth is always one of the most colorful (and trippy) places at San Diego Comic Con. It's your own personal - legal - acid trip. All of the artists (APAK, Bwana Spoons, Le Merde, Martin Ontiveros and Scrappers) were well represented. Our top three favorite of the bunch? Babe Bunyan (Scrappers), Bill Patternmaker (Arne) and just about anything by Le Merde.
