The merchandise inside the San Diego Comic Con..
All together, a favorite aspect of the San Diego Comic Con show I love to explore inside its gigantic Exhibit Hall. This year was no different, as the variety to collectors appeared wide and wonderful. Though, I felt personally disappointing with the lack of loose action figures among dealers this year. But, they got a spread on plenty of the usual cheap trade paperbacks, geek apparel, vintage comics, packaged popular toys, and popular culture merch for all attendants.
Below, are some notable favorites to my eye for this year…
Vintage comics books look beautiful when freed from their protective sleeves, dont they?
A favorite find another attendee picked up..described on wikipedia as “a disco album by Meco released in 1977. The album uses various musical themes from the Star Wars soundtrack arranged as instrumental disco music. A single from the album, “Star Wars Theme/Cantina Band”, reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on October 1, 1977″
Moss Man is a personal favorite from the classic He-Man toys. Now, you can keep your window and other tacky nerd items of choice company.
From the Super 7 booth, a rerelease of the original classic Alien figure with metal jaws. The metal jaws somehow makes the awesome Giger creation even scarier..
On action, the original cover to one of my favorite classic Star Wars covers, which somehow reminds me a similiar scene with Dark Helmet in Spaceballs..
An odd artpiece from one of the custom art booths..
Best comic book boxes art ever!
The Chessex booth rocked my tabletop gamer senses..
From the Square Enix booth, this Play Arts Steampunk Batman figure is a bit ridiculous, but I do love..
(DKE Booth) Love this custom Bart, figure and package…
(DKE Booth) Tusken Jones..
(DKE Booth) Pity the Foot!
Gentle Giant booth reps play with a giant replica of the Grunt figure from the early 80s Gi-Joe age!!
The “Blade Fighter” because I love ridiculous vehicles and playsets to our popular figures, and the packaging to..
The silly transport vehicle of the classic Kenner Star Wars line, lives again!
I love looking through original art, and the Exhibition Hall has plenty..
“Can you BEAR it?”
Love that Harlock pistol!
Nice, but I wish I could buy just the Sisko..
That’s all just a small taste of the Exhibit Hall fun for 2015. Next up, to conclude my Comic Con tour will be some personal closing thoughts. Look forward to them!
