Yes, we were there
Diamond Select Toys' non-Minimate SDCC panel included a few announcements, a loot at some upcoming items, and a lot of excitement. Major highlights included the news that the DC Animated Universe Huntress is going to be added...

Sonic photo
Faster & bluer than the average hedgehog
Tomopop (or, more specifically, our ace reporter Tian) wasn't able to make it to every booth at SDCC and, as such, we (again, Tian) weren't able to see Kidrobot's Sonic at the event in person. However, we were assured that it...

You can count on the Play Arts Kai brand to bring some unique (if not overly busy) interpretations of some of your favorite comic book characters. I found a couple such figures at the Square Enix booth at SDCC. They were part...

SDCC 2016: Shiflett Bros.

Imaginative, original art
Jul 28
// Tianxiao Ma
The Shiflett Brothers have made a name for themselves with their fantastical, steampunk-y sculptures. What first struck me about them was the level of detail in each sculpt. But over the years their designs have gotten more e...

More robots, please
Jul 27
// Tianxiao Ma
I kicked off my tour of Weta's exhibit with their 2017 Ghost in the Shell display. It contained a life-sized replica of an android that I'm assuming will appear in the film. It was reminiscent of the robots featured in Ghost ...

Grungy mecha and original creations
Jul 27
// Tianxiao Ma
When I asked the 3A rep what was new for this year, he basically introduced me to every single thing on display. You can see that their artistic vision is still intact, but they've tackled more and more licensed properties ov...

I wasn't expecting to see many Japanese manufacturers at SDCC due to WonFes, but Gecco was able to attend the show. They had flown under my radar until last year when they announced the Venom Snake and Quiet statues for Metal...

He stabbed first
Kotobukiya announced a new Kylo Ren figure at Friday's Star Wars collectibles panel, and shortly after it appeared in their booth. Although Koto has taken on Kylo Ren in the past, this one's the most dynamic yet. The figure i...

Joes, Ponies, and lots of Star Wars.
Jul 23
// Soul Tsukino
Hasbro once again came to the SDCC to show off their new wares for the coming year or some and they had quite a bit to offer. Our roving reporter Tian was there to grab all the pictures so that we can bring them here to you. Since Jeremy covered the Transformers already, here is what else Hasbro had to show off.

Our friends over at Mattel always try to do big at these conventions and this time around is no different. They had a lot to show off at SDCC, and our own tian was there to get all the picture. So let's dive right in.

I generally think of prop replicas and Firefly/Serenity when Quantum Mechanix comes up, but their SDCC showing was almost anything but. They've got loads of cool Marvel and DC Comics figures, like this flippin' precious Adam ...

Shocker: lots of Star Wars
Jul 22
// Tianxiao Ma
Without looking you can probably get the gist of what Hot Toys had on display: Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, Civil War, and Star Wars. That's not due to a lack of originality on their part; that's simply the zeitgeist of ...

To give you an idea of the expanse of Sideshow's exhibit, I spent about an hour rushing through the photo coverage and still only managed to get half of it. The other half was dedicated to Hot Toys, which we'll cover in a sep...

Looking forward to New York Comic Con...
When you have to display at multiple toy shows a year it's hard to keep things fresh and exciting. Hasbro did a pretty good job last year between Toy Fair, BotCon, San Diego Comic Con and New York Comic Con, and in 2016 they ...

Nice figures tucked into a tiny booth

Good Smile Company doesn't usually do Comic Con as WonFes is usually the same weekend. However it seems like they're starting to stake out some territory at SDCC. Their booth was pretty small and tucked away - not what you'd ...

Repaints, retools, and reissues
Hasbro didn't play all of their cards last month at BotCon, but they certainly played their best ones. Hasbro's display and presentation at San Diego Comic Con 2015 was a little lacking compared to years past. We did finally ...
