SDCC 2013: Minimates panel and Headquarters

The Minimates panel at San Diego Comic Con was one that I had been greatly looking forward to. I learned that the franchise had been around for 11 years (10 for the Marvel portion) and I couldn't wait to hear what was coming ...

SDCC 2013: Dragatomi (Part 1)

It goes without saying that Dragatomi had one of the busiest booths in the designer toy section during SDCC. There always seemed to be something going on there (usually a signing) and if there wasn't, there were plenty of cus...

SDCC 2013: Funko photo
SDCC 2013: Funko
by Natalie Kipper

If you were to ask me which booth at San Diego Comic Con had the greatest number of event-exclusive merchandise, my answer, without a doubt, would be Funko. Their booth always seemed to have a line that snaked around it and spilled out into the walkway. The booth itself was of medium size and used its lighted shelves to create walls for the area. 

With exclusive toys ranging in theme from Disney to My Little Pony to popular movie and comic book characters, there was something for everyone (which explains the line, I guess). I would say my two favorites were the Funko POP! Oswald and Dumbo figures. I noticed a few attendees "ooh"-ing and "aah"-ing over the flocked Hello Kitty figures, too. Funko's Wacky Wobblers line also included a few exclusives but the majority were definitely from the POP! line.

SDCC 2013: DKE Toys

Most of what DKE Toys had at their SDCC booth this year were the exclusives for the show, eschewing the gigantic booth they've had in years past. That meant that unlike years past, there were no tiny surprises tucked away in ...

SDCC 2013: eFX

eFX had an assortment of very nice, very expensive things on display. The officially licensed prop replica maker's booth consisted mostly of Star Wars items, including a very neat unpainted version of Boba Fett's helmet. Join me after the jump for an up-close look at some things a bit out of my price range.
