Scarecroodle also notes that some of these aren't necessarily NYCC exclusives, but are store exclusives that will be sold at NYCC. If I've missed anything, please point me to it in the comments section so I could add it to this post.

SDCC 2013: Mezco Toyz

A lot of manufacturers focus on particular genres of TV and films when they make toys, but apparently Mezco will just do anything under the sun. It's a good thing, though. Where else are you going to find a plush of the puppe...

SDCC list of exclusives is now online photo
SDCC list of exclusives is now online
by Natalie Kipper

Open the floodgates! The list of exclusives for the San Diego Comic Con has gone online and, while it is not yet finalized, the thing is still pretty dang long and already has me dreaming of the exhibit hall. Within the scrolling page of links, you will find items we have already previewed, like Super7's Alien ReAction 2 Pack, along with tons of new goodies (doggie Yoda ears from Petco, anyone?). You'll notice that some of the companies have dark blue "Advance Purchase" links at the top of their exclusives page. You may want to consider that if something really catches your eye.

Keep checking back to the list because new information will be added as we approach the con.

Mezco announces exclusive Cheetara and Snarf two-pack
by Vanessa Cubillo

With all these SDCC exclusives being announced, Mezco doesn't want to be left out of the fun. So they have announced that their third summer exclusive will be a two-pack of Cheetara and Snarf from ThunderCats. Cheetara stands at a stunning 14 inches and has 10 points of articulation.

Coming with her signature bo-staff, Cheetara's eyes also glow in the dark. At her side will be ThunderCats sidekick, Snarf measuring in at 5 inches. These two will be packaged together in a collector-friendly window box.

Since this set is an exclusive, there will be a limited amount available. You can find Cheetara and Snarf right now on Mezco's website for US$50.

Mezco shows off two Walter White figure prototypes
by Kristina Pino

Following an announcement back in December regarding Breaking Bad figures, Mezco is already delivering with these smashing images of Walter White all suited up for work. He is sculpted by Trevor Grove, who also does work for Sideshow Collectibles.

Walter is 6 inches tall and Trevor explains that there are two versions, both featuring articulation and accessories which haven't been shown yet. Both figures are slated for release sometime this summer. See the two thumbnails in the gallery for full views at both prototypes!

For a treat, check out some more of Trevor's delightful sculpts while we wait for more news on Heisenberg.
