Flat Bonnie's Sparq the Baby Dragon to debut at SDCC

When we first got a glimpse of Flat Bonnie's Sparq the Baby Dragon back in May, he was a nameless prototype, filled with possibilities and cotton. Now, he is on his way to debut at San Diego Comic-Con. And seeing how at SDCC,...

Bandai will bring 60th anniversary Godzilla to SDCC
by Vanessa Cubillo

Godzilla has been having a great year. With his new movie, his popularity has risen once again. So for SDCC, Bandai was smart enough to have an exclusive of Godzilla.

In honor of the great kaiju’s 60th anniversary, there will be a limited edition vinyl figure. Measuring close to seven inches tall, Godzilla is designed with red markings all over his body to show the burning destruction he causes in a city. His back will also be ice blue to show his famous Atomic Breath.

Now, what’s really cool is that this figure will come with a diorama of Tokyo so you can show Godzilla terrorizing the city. Only 500 pieces will be available and will come individually numbered. This will be available at Bandai’s SDCC booth for US$60.

We Love Fine's latest vinyl figure is more a dream than a nightmare

Well, it looks like we didn't have to wait too long to have We Love Fine's moonlit teaser unveiled. As many a My Little Pony fan has guessed, the unicorn horn's shadow across the full moon does in fact allude to Nightmar...

Furry Feline Creatives' Kaiju-inspired plushes set to battle across SDCC photo
Furry Feline Creatives' Kaiju-inspired plushes set to battle across SDCC

After quite a bit of teasing on their Facebook page, Alvin and Cheri Ong of Furry Feline Creatives have fully revealed their new plushes exclusive to San Diego Comic-Con. The series of four is entitled "Kawaii Kaiju Friends" and decks Furry Feline Creatives' Purridge, Ringo, and Dude in costumes themed to those old-school Japanese monster figures.

Kitty Purridge is now "Kawaii Kaiju Purridge" (US$60 each) and can be found in either a tangerine or lightning blue-colored Cyclops-style monster suit. Dude the turtle grows some spiky bits as "Go-Go Supaiku Dude" (US$50). And finally, Ringo the cat transforms into the heroic "Ultra Mega Ringo" (US$50). I presume his battles are going to be more of the pillow fight variety, though. He just looks so squishy! Each of these plushes will be limited to 10 pieces. Given that each plush is handmade, I would make a stop at this booth early if one of these guys is on your shopping list.

San Diego Comic-Con attendees will have a chance to purchase these cuties as well as meet the artists at booth 5149 (right next to Tokidoki). I highly recommend checking them out. Besides being genuinely enthusiastic about their toys and toy culture, Alvin and Cheri always put tons of effort into making their booth look super-cool. Seriously, it'll be hard to miss, visually speaking.

Hasbro's SDCC My Little Pony exclusives are super, hairy photo
Hasbro's SDCC My Little Pony exclusives are super, hairy
by Natalie Kipper

Hasbro recently revealed the My Little Pony portion of their San Diego Comic-Con exclusives line-up. The company will have two figures available, Mane-iac Mayhem Pony (US$49.99) and her Equestria Girls' human doll equivalent (US$29.99). Hasbro had this to say of Mane-iac Mayhem Pony:

This power-mad pony from Maretropolis features a metallic purple outfit, accessorized with fashionable black and gold glittery boots. She comes with Spike the Dragon as 'Hum Drum.'

Pretty fitting for SDCC, don't you think? They don't go into much detail in regards to her humanoid counterpart but I think the picture speaks for itself. Crazy hair matching her pony plus a super-wild outfit certainly give the impression of a out-of-the-ordinary girl. 

These figures will be sold at San Diego Comic-Con at Hasbro's booth. Edition sizes have not yet been revealed. Any remaining stock will put up for sale online on HasbroToyShop.com post-SDCC.

Uglydoll's SDCC exclusive revealed on Instagram
by Natalie Kipper

Uglydoll is one of those San Diego Comic-Con exhibitors whose con-exclusive toys charm me year after year. And boy, have they outdone themselves this time! Making use of their recent partnership with DC Comics, it looks like 2014's exclusive will be Big Toe dressed as the infamous Batman villain, the Joker.

This information was revealed last night on David Horvath's Instagram. For those who don't know, David is the head dude at Uglydoll, Chief Ugly himself. The photo's caption reads:

Sdcc Joker, won't be in stores, low production run. He he he, ha ha ha, Big Toe!

That is about all the information we have on the cosplaying monster so far. No price or edition size yet.

I know this plush has skyrocketed to the top of my SDCC shopping list. What do you guys think?

Entertainment Earth reveals exclusive Mezco Breaking Bad Jesse photo
Entertainment Earth reveals exclusive Mezco Breaking Bad Jesse
by Vanessa Cubillo

After the announcement of Funko’s Breaking Bad Pop! figures, we’re getting more toys from the hit AMC show. I celebrate this, becauseI’m finally watching now, and I get to enjoy in the excitement I couldn’t back then. So Entertainment Earth showed that they will have an exclusive Breaking Bad figure from Mezco.

The figure is of Jesse Pinkman wearing an orange hazmat suit. This limited edition figure is six inches tall and will come with a gas mask and a tub of blue crystal. This figure’s likeness to Aaron Paul is alright.

It’s not terrible, but it’s better than some of the other figures I’ve seen for TV shows. For instance, every Dexter figure from Bif Bang Pow! is horrible! Jesse will come in a window box with a Vamonos Pest sleeve.

Availavle in October, you can pre-order this exclusive figure now on Entertainment Earth for US$19.99.

Nendoroid Levi : Cleaning Ver. to be an Anime Expo-exclusive
by Natalie Kipper

Attack on Titan sure has its set of die-hard followers but even those who are only mildly interested in the anime are sure to feel the urge to purchase Good Smile Company's extra-special Nendoroid version of the Levi. Dressed in his cleaning attire, he's all set to attack those giant dust bunnies on your desk and shelves. The good news is this figure comes out this month. The bad news? It is an event-exclusive. He will be making an appearance at Anime Expo in Los Angeles, California from July 3 through July 6. The figure will also make its rounds in France's Japan Expo, China's CCG Expo, and Japan's Comic Market 86 (event dates and additional information can be found on the figure's page).

Nendoroid Levi: Cleaning Version will cost ¥3,241 at Good Smile Company's booth during these conventions.

Ever After High's Cerise Wolf confirmed for SDCC photo
Ever After High's Cerise Wolf confirmed for SDCC
by Natalie Kipper

For Ever After High fans awaiting more news after Tuesday's teaser image, the time for the full reveal has come. As predicted, the San Diego Comic-Con exclusive is none other than Cerise Wolf (a.k.a. Cerise Hood), the daughter of Red Riding Hood and the Big, Bad Wolf. She comes garbed in a blood red dress and wolf's pelt, honoring both sides of her lineage. Notice that fangs are visible on this doll, unlike previous versions.

To get your paws on this doll, you have several options, including one for those who can't make it the con. The first option is pre-ordering it for pick-up at SDCC during the Voucher sale at MattyCollector. The sale begins on June 23 at 8 a.m. Pacific for Club Eternia subscribers. For everyone else, the start is June 24 at 9 a.m., provided they haven't sold out of the allocated stock during Early Access. The second option is to simply brave the lines at SDCC and purchase it straight from Mattel's booth. Finally, starting on August 4 at the MattyCollector After Party Sale, everyone will have a chance to purchase a Cerise Wolf from their online store. Priority goes to Club Eternia subscribers, who will be able to order beginning August 4 at 8 a.m. Pacific. And if there are any dolls left, the flood gates will open to the public starting August 5 at 9 a.m. Pacific.

As of yet, we don't know the edition size nor the price of Cerise Wolf.
