The great exclusives round-up of WonderCon 2013

Mar 27 // Natalie Kipper
Dynamite Rex's Green & Red 3 inch Skeleton Double Cast figures (Booth 977) Our first toy doesn't actually come from the official WonderCon website but was rather revealed on Dynamite Rex's Facebook page. These 3-inch-tall works of art take on the Dynamite Rex mold and add a skeleton to the mix. Each piece is handmade by Mana Studios. You can snag one at the price of US$50 each. It should be noted that some of these may be potentially be available post-con to those unable to attend. The price will be higher (US$55) but, if you are interested, you should email as soon as possible to secure your figure. The edition size wasn't mentioned but, given that these are handmade, I can't imagine there are very many in existence. Kuso Vinyl's Chrome & Gold Mictlan, Batman & Batgirl, and Luckitty Pon Gold Edition (Booth 1176) Of the the five exclusive releases taking place over at Kuso Vinyl's booth, we have previously covered three of them. So, let's start with the two new ones: the Chrome and Gold Mictlan resin figures, made by Jesse Hernandez. Both the chrome and gold effects are achieved via electro-plating. The Chrome edition will be released on Friday, March 29, and the Gold one will be released Saturday, March 30. Jesse will be available to sign the figures on Saturday at 11 a.m. Each edition will retail for US$130 per figure and be limited to 15 pieces.  The next two exclusives, Fuller Design's Batman and Batgirl, are more like custom versions of Rotobox's Celsius and Revolver Girl figures. There are only one of each design in existence. The pricing wasn't mentioned, unfortunately.  The final exclusive figure for the Kuso Vinyl booth is Rotobox's Luckitty Pon Gold Edition. Limited to 200 pieces worldwide, this rotund feline will only set you back US$11. Pretty affordable, if you ask me, which is fitting as Gold Lucky Cats represent great wealth and prosperity in Japanese culture.  BAIT's Blue Jaguar Knight and Deathshead figures (Booth 1153) Jesse Hernandez also made one of BAIT's exclusive vinyl figures, the Blue Jaguar Knight. Limited to 45 pieces, this fierce warrior costs US$120 each. The tribal patterns against the varying shades of blue are quite eye-catching, aren't they? David Flores provides BAIT with its second exclusive, the Deathshead figure. This hybrid of a skeleton and Mickey Mouse costs US$100 and is limited to 30 pieces. Super 7's Midnight Snack Milton, Happy Cola Mummy Boy, and Glowing Frost Rose Vampire figures (Booth 1166) Each of the three Super7 exclusives are 3 inches tall and cost US$25 each. Midnight Snack Milton is a glow-in-the-dark, anthropomorphic ice cream cone. I love the color scheme on this one. Plus, he's just so cute! Happy Cola Mummy Boy is made to be reminiscent of those gummy cola bottles by Haribo. He is even translucent and squishy, just like the candy! The toy's header card is also inspired by the Japanese confection. Glowing Frost Rose Vampire is another GID figure for Super 7. With such a, well, frosty color scheme, you can see where this toy gets its name.  Furry Feline Creatives' Fury Felines MEOW plush set (Booth 1181) These handmade plush sets from Alvin and Cheri Ong of Furry Feline Creatives will be limited to 9 pairs, costing US$99 each. More details can be found on the sets' previous post. Dekorner's Can of Worms Gray Version (Booth 1179) The Gray Version of Andrew Bell's adorable Can of Worms will cost US$50 for one of its 100 pieces. You can read more about this macabre colorway on this toy's original post.  DC Entertainment's Aardman Batman & Robin figure 2-pack and Guy Gardner & Larfleeze figure 2-pack (Booth 1001) The Aardman Batman and Robin figure 2-pack is just what it sounds like: a figure set of Batman and the Boy Wonder done up in traditional Aardman style (think Wallace and Gromit). The rather humorous-looking duo will retail for US$39.95 with only 2,000 pieces made. The Guy Gardner and Larfleeze figure 2-pack was covered previously. But to sum up, this exclusive will actually be avaialable at C2E2 as well as WonderCon. The set will cost US$29.95 and be limited to 5,000 pieces.  Flat Bonnie's Shelbun and Woolly Mammoth plush (Booth 1076) Both of Flat Bonnie's WonderCon exclusive plushes were covered in a previous post. For those who don't recall, here is a brief summary. The 12-inch Shelbun will be limited to 20 pieces and cost US$25 each. Retailing for US$60, Woolly Mammoth is limited to 10 pieces and is 13 inches tall. All of Bonnie's plushes are handmade. So, that is our list of WonderCon exclusive toys. Did something sneak past us? Post it in the comments!
