With Comic-Con around the corner, you’re going to either have to spend all of your money or plan it out. Because, exclusives. If you’ve been before, you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, well, you’re going to find out.
Here is a list of things we think you should look out for and try to get your hands on. Hope you don’t mind wasting two entire days waiting in lines for this shit. Good luck.
Hasbro San Diego Comic-Con 2017 Exclusives
I would say you should probably get all of these, but below are my must-haves.
Hasbro’s latest San Diego Comic-Con exclusive is ready to shred: a Transformers Primitive Optimus Prime. The design (which was in part created by Primitive Skateboarding founder Paul Rodriguez) feature Primitive Skate’s classic black and gold colors for a more sophisticated and on-brand look, and comes packaged in packaging to mimic a “skate shoe” box with grip-tape inspired texture. He comes quipped with a ramp, rail, and hoverboard – and retails for just $49.99.
The pack includes a Leader Class Optimus Prime figure and a Titan Master Shreddicus Maximus figure, and converts from robot to tractor trailer in 23 steps and from tractor trailer to battle station in 10 steps.
The second exclusive, Star Wars: The Black Series 6-Inch Grand Admiral Thrawn, will retail for $49.99 (compared to the regular retail release, which will retail for $19.99 and be available in the fall), and comes with very cool SDCC exclusive packaging and extra accessories, including all of his trophies in a special trophy room diorama box. Here’s a look:
Funko San Diego Comic-Con 2017 Exclusives
This is slowly becoming one of the hardest to get your hands on due to the massive explosion of Funko. And you bet your ass we’re going to try to get them. Here’s the must-haves — what do you think?
There’s one that you probably won’t be able to get. Can you guess?
Factory Entertainment SDCC 2017 Exclusives
Factory Entertainment tends to own it, and they’re a smaller one, but GOOD! This year, they’ll be bringing along a whole new lineup of exclusives for attendees to get their hands on at Booth #2647. And if you like dragons (who doesn’t?), this one is for you!.
There be dragons! You can dance with the dragons with Factory’s second Game of Thrones San Diego Comic-Con exclusives, the Game of Thrones Dragon Plush Box Set. The 5″ plush set, which features Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion, are just the right size to maximize their cute-factor. The set is limited to 1,000 pieces, and will retail for $35, and it’s now available for pre-order either to pick up in Factory Entertainment Booth #2647 or to have it shipped after the con.
LEGO San Diego Comic-Con 2017 Exclusives
When you think about exclusives, there are very few that come to mind which people ask if you’ve had the chance to pick up. LEGO is for sure one of those. They’re always fucking kill it, and their stuff is hard to get. In order to purchase LEGO’s exclusives, you’ll need to draw a ticket upstairs on the Pavilion Terrace, beginning as early as 6am daily. If you do happen to get a ticket for it, but you forget to pick it up, then you’ll lose your chance and have to start over.
So that’s it for now! What do you think? What will you be picking up from SDCC2017? Are you going? Find us!
