SDCC 2014: Uglydoll
by Natalie Kipper

When Uglydoll's David Horvath revealed their con-exclusive, a plush of their Big Toe character cosplaying as The Joker from DC Comics' Batman, I knew the booth was going to be swarmed even more than usual this year. This was true and with good reason! Attendees were treated to not only plushes of Big Toe as The Joker but also Babo as Superman, Tray as Wonder Woman, and Ice-Bat as Batman. These adorable stuffed superheroes were available for purchase in two sizes, 11-inches (some of which are also available online) and two-feet tall. They had barrels of mini-plush keychains as well. 

Besides the promised plush offerings, Uglydoll also brought with them enamel pins and several limited edition art prints, all showcasing the characters in their DC Comics garb. Every piece of merchandise had that signature Uglydoll charm that I associate with the brand. It is simple and happy, and never ceases to illicit a smile.

You can get a better look at Uglydoll's SDCC offerings in the gallery.

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Good Smile Company - miscellaneous

Continuing with Good Smile Company's (and associates) apparently near-infinite display at WonFes, we arrive at some Attack on Titan figures and a bunch of Sonicos. GSC usually does a decent job with Sonico figures in that I d...

We Love Fine's San Diego Comic-Con booth was broken up into three different locations: one near the Star Wars exhibits, one in the designer toy area, and another just chilling in the center of the action. The last of the trio...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Vertex

So yeah, Persona 3's Yukari is getting a figure. That makes me pretty happy. Thanks, Vertex! They had a few other figures on display at WonFes... some of which I'd like to forget. From the folks who brought you Super Sonico,...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Pulchra

I'm limited by Tomopop's language policy, but please feel free to make all the male anatomy jokes you want about the display base for the Mikasa figure. Unintentional humor is often the best kind after all. Pulchra's WonFes d...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Good Smile Company girls part 2

Partial nudity and figure collecting go hand in hand. If it makes you uncomfortable, you may want to avoid this gallery. However it makes me very comfortable, so I'll tell you a little about what's going on! These figures are...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Broccoli

Broccoli apparently doesn't care if a series isn't a super popular anime or blockbuster game. Just having a following is enough for them. Just take visual novel series Amairo Islenauts as an example, it's getting its fir...
