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.

SDCC 2014: So So Happy/Skelanimals photo
SDCC 2014: So So Happy/Skelanimals
by Natalie Kipper

The San Diego Comic-Con booth belonging to So So Happy and Skelanimals was split in half, with each brand taking up a wing of the long set of tables. Much of So So Happy's merchandise was apparel with a few character backpacks, plushes and those cosplay onesies we saw previously at this year's WonderCon. The onesies are now also made to cover the Skelanimals characters along with So So Happy's host of monsters. It was pretty fun to see fans walk up to the booth dressed in them. They got such special attention; it was sweet! One of the hottest items on So So Happy's side was a limited edition iJustine-themed hoodie. The Skelanimals portion was host to the booth's con-exclusive, the Cute-as-Hell Diego plush, along with other goodies like the die-cut Kit purse, which seemed very popular.

Check out our gallery to see more of what the booth had in store!

SDCC 2014: Furry Feline Creatives
by Natalie Kipper

San Diego Comic-Con's designer toy section was a veritable gauntlet packed full of bodies and vendors but even with all the chaos, it wasn't hard to spot Furry Feline Creatives' booth. Topped with a giant doll of their Chef Tako character, the area had many new items from the minds of Alvin and Cheri Ong. I will be honest, what I most excited about were their four con-exclusive Kawaii Kaiju Friends plushes. The pictures don't do justice to these toys' vivid colors. They were positively electric! And I wasn't the only attendee enamored with them; they were practically flying off the shelves.

Beyond the plushes, Alvin and Cheri also sold their new line charm bracelets and watches, all bearing the likenesses of Purridge and her friends. They also debuted two new handbags (available for pre-order on their site here and here). The bags especially impressed me (I am a sucker for tons of pockets).

Check out all the new Furry Feline Creatives' items in the gallery!

SDCC 2014: Blizzard Entertainment Showcase
by Natalie Kipper

Along with having a very awesome booth, Blizzard's San Diego Comic-Con presence also included a panel, the Blizzard Entertainment 2014 Showcase. Jason Bischoff, the company's Senior Toys and Collectibles Manager, was in attendance and previewed some of the upcoming toys heading our way. There is a lot for fans of Blizzard's games to be excited about!

Attendees got another look the new plushes (along with their con-exclusive variants) that we saw in the previous SDCC post. We also got a glimpse of what Sideshow Collectibles' impressive Kerrigan 1:6 statue will look like painted. The Deathwing statue that was previewed last year was also shown in color. They also announced 1:6 figures of Raynor and Tychus (US$499.99 each). Funko revealed their upcoming line of Blizzard Mystery Minis. Each blind-box is priced at US$5.95. Slides were also shown of there upcoming Pop! Vinyl Series 2 toys (US$10- $15), which were on display at Blizzard's booth. NECA showcased their Diablo III figure variant (US$24.99) as well debuted their action figures for Heroes of the Storm.

All of the toys shown are either currently available at the Blizzard online store or will be in the future.
