San Diego Comic-Con 2006
« on: February 21, 2006, 02:06 PM »
About time we had a thread to capture all the deatils on this show...

2006 San Diego Comic Con -  July 19th-23rd

Check out Comic-Con Update #1 for a preview of some of the stuff being prepared for 2006.

Also, here's a handy list of the SDCC Exclusives that have been announced so far:
GG Shocktrooper Mini-Bust
GG Shocktrooper Bust-Up
GG Darth Vader (Flames) Bust-Up
GG Lucius Malfoy (Death Eater) Mini-Bust
GG Clash of the Titans Rotocast Figures 3-pack (autographed by Ray Harryhausen)
Sideshow 12" Figure - rumored to be "Sith Eyes" Anakin


edit:
Forgot to add that you can put me down as #1 on the list of those seeking help on the SDCC Exclusive Hasbro SW figure for this year.  It hasn't been confirmed or anything yet, but you know it's coming...  :P

I plan on making my annual trip to Comic Con this year, and as always will do whatever I can to help people out.

I guess I'm going to have to add my name to the 3 3/4" Hasbro exclusive list too.

Unless there's a major problem, I should be going on the first day (as usual) this year. If there's going to be a JD get together over the weekend though, a little arm twisting might be able to get me to take another trip down.

Heh, heh.  He'll still be wearing plaid.  ;)

I'm not too worried about the Hasbro exclusive, but I sure want those Flame Vader and Shocktrooper Bust-Ups!

Jeff- Do you think that Hasbro replaced the figure this year with the Gold Titanium Vader Tie or do you think there will still be a Hasbro 3 3/4" figure as well?

Don't know for sure yet.  Early rumor reports said that Hasbro would have a convention exclusive figure this year, so there could still be both a figure and the Gold TIE too.

So who from here is going, aside from Jon and Jamie?  Anyone else making the journey?  I'm contemplating going, but not sure how it would go over with the wifey. 

If I don't make it, I'll be wanting the Hasbro fig, Gold Vader's Tie, Shocktrooper Bust and Vader flame bust up ::)  And probably some other Marvel or DC crap as well :-\

Brent you should come the week before and go to the National in Anaheim also.

I'll be there.  I don't want to miss one of Matt's questions to Hasbro.   :P

I'm taking my vacation that week so I will be there for the duration (1st time ever.)  I'm very excited for preview night since I'm dying to try and score that Shocktrooper bust (which I'm hoping will be on sale that night.)

I'll be there along with most of the SoCal guys. Brent you have to come witness Colman go after the Hasbro reps at the Q&A.
