11 San Diego Comic-Con Exclusives I Must Have Or Else Nerd Tears
Jill Pantozzi | 3:30 pm, July 15th, 2013
1.Cheetarah & Snarf
From: Mezco Toys
I still have my old Snarf from the 80s but I never had a Cheetarah so this is a match made in heaven. It's actually a 14-inch mega scale figure offering of my favorite
ThunderCats character, which is even better. This set is considered a "Summer Exclusive" so I might have a better chance of a non-SDCC purchase happening.
Selling for: $50
2.Baroness & Ravage
This amazing Baroness & Ravage pairing is only available as a larger set of GI Joe meets the Transformers. So, you know, if anyone gets the set and feels like parting with these guys, you know where to find me.
Selling for: $99.99
3.Glitter ‘N Gold Jem
Hasbro have been seriously impressing me with their
new collectible line of Jem and the Holograms dolls. I still own my originals but these are just SO PRETTY. However, this particular doll is truly outrageous.
Selling for: $140.00
4.Naked Bloody Brock
From: Bif Bang Pow!
For the record, the lack of Brock on
The Venture Bros. this season is killing me. While anatomically incorrect toys have always been a thing, there's something about the blood splatter that does it for me here. But if I manage to get this one, I might put him in a kilt.
Selling for: $14.99
5.House Stark Shield
From: Dark Horse Comics
Dark Horse has a number of awesome
Game of Thrones merchandise for sale in their store but for the big convention this year, they're featuring a seven-inch Stark shield with a hook for wall mounting. The only thing that would make this better would if it was a real shield, for real protection.
Selling for: $30
6.Game of Thrones Throw Pillow
From: Factory Entertainment
I can never have enough
Game of Thrones stuff but I could also use more throw pillows in my life. Particularly ones with dragons on them.
Selling for: $29.99
Alien action figures are based on a set of prototypes never made back in 1979. Four different sets will be for sale at SDCC but this is the one that called to me the most. I mean, just look at them.
Selling for: $100
8.Super Best Friends Forever
From: DC Collectibles/Graphitti Designs
While DC has an official Zazzle store with
select , this is the only figures of the group we're likely to get. And to be honest, we here at The Mary Sue have been freaking out about this set Super Best Friends Forever merch since they first announced it in May. If I had to choose just one SDCC exclusive to get, this would be it.
Selling for: $49.95
9.Green Arrow Minifig
This little guy is one of four limited-edition superhero minifigs at the LEGO booth. But guess what? You can't buy them. Why? Because they're giving them away. There's also going to be a Spider-Woman, Spider-Man, and an alternate costume Superman.
Selling for: $0
His claws come out of nowhere. I don't care.
Selling for: $49.99
11.Magnitude Admiral Ackbar
From: Gentle Giant
Everyone needs one of these in their homes if you ask me.
Selling for: $175

As a nerd, I’ve collected a few things through the years. Some fans obsess over amassing an entire series of one particular thing, I just like what I like. So you can imagine when San Diego Comic-Con rolls around. While some of these SDCC exclusives might be offered online by the respective companies after the show, most won’t be, and that’s unfortunate considering I won’t be attending the convention this week. So here is my ultimate wish-list of SDCC exclusives. Here’s hoping I can convince a few friends to do me a solid.
