Andrew Bell's Can of Worms gets a con-exclusive colorway photo
Andrew Bell's Can of Worms gets a con-exclusive colorway
by Natalie Kipper

Wondercon recently released a list of the exclusives that will be available to con-goers. One of the list's highlights for vinyl collectors is sure to be the Gray Version of Andrew Bell's delightful Can of Worms (previously covered here). The figure will be available for purchase at DeKorner's booth (number 1179) for the price of US$50 each. The Gray Version is limited to 100 pieces so if you plan on purchasing this unique piece, I'd visit the booth early in the day.

I know I am biased, being an Andrew Bell fan, but I really like the Can of Worms. I think this con-exclusive colorway really adds to the figure in manner that is hard to describe in words. Where the original colorway is more lighthearted, this one brings a somewhat subdued awareness that I appreciate. 

What do you all think of the Gray Version? Are any Wondercon attendees adding this one to your shopping list?
