Among Kidrobot’s always amazing exclusives is their newest ode to ‘Bob’s Burgers.’ TBH, we will hurt anyone who tries to stop us from getting our hands on the Badder Tina Figure. (Booth 5645)

Perfect for stuffing with other purchases, this Gotham City PD backpack is available through Superherostuff, so look for their towering shop or hit


Funko never disappoints with their toys, and if you can survive the wait (seriously, the line tho!), this hypercolor Batmobile from the classic ‘Batman’ series deserves a good home.


In addition to Funko must-haves celebrating ‘Stranger Things,’ ‘It’ and classic horror movies, the home of vinyl collectibles is also unveiling a ‘Twin Peaks’ Black Lodge 2-Pack featuring Agent Cooper and Laura Palmer!

Factory Entertainment

You may not be as fast as Barry Allen, but you can totally be as official as ‘The Flash’ with this STAR Labs Retractable ID Badge Set, available at Factory Entertainment’s booth #2647.

Gentle Giant

Gentle Giant will be carrying a digitally sculpted Spider-Man Animated Statue, which is both awesome and hand-numbered with a limited edition certificate of authenticity. (Booth 3513)

Arcana will be at Booth # 2515 a

Nothing says “sweet, terrifying dreams” like a limited-edition stuffed Cthulhu, based on the tales of H.P. Lovecraft. (Arcana, Booth 2515)


There will be surprise boxes aplenty on the convention floor, but the one we are so into is the Summer Block Party-themed Nick Box packed with one-of-a-kind collectibles, apparel and other items from classic Nickelodeon shows.


You have to believe we are Magic: The Gathering addicts intent on scoring their yearly exclusive “Planeswalker Pack.” See ya at the Hasbro Shop!

Entertainment Earth

Another hot spot for shoppers at SDCC is the Entertainment Earth tower, where you can snag ‘Twilight Zone’ dolls, licensed KISS collectibles and these baller ‘Justice League’ chair capes (Superman also available). (Booth 2343)

BBC America

If you’ve ever needed more ‘Doctor Who’ in your life, BBC America has it all—earrings, Sonic Screwdrivers, even these rainbow TARDIS hoodies and t-shirts. ‘Sherlock’ and ‘Orphan Black’ items will also be flying off the shelves at Booth 4129.

BBC America

Funko strikes again! Check out the BBC booth for your favorite ‘Doctor Who,’ ‘Orphan Black’ and ‘Sherlock’ vinyl figures. Bet ya can’t buy just one.

DK Publishing

The book section of Comic-Con may be the best section. Especially when the DK Publishing group is offering a limited number of prints from ‘Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia’ signed by author Cole Horton on Preview Night. They’ll also have a “Use the Force” demo from their October release, ‘Star Wars Coding Projects.’ (Booth 1515-B)

So. Much. Swag.

Not the “Hey, baby, can I get you some more rosé?” kind of swag. The “Oh my god, they have a Castiel action figure!” kind of swag. The Comic-Con kind. And it’s coming for your wallet.

Kicking off this week in San Diego, the annual pop-culture convention features miles and piles of goodies to grab up, from the usual toys, stickers, t-shirts and books, to exclusive items available only at Comic-Con International. There is literally something for everyone. Corsets. Cat ears. Customized steampunk goggles.  You name it, it’s probably on a table somewhere between The Walking Dead activation and the line of folks waiting to see Stephen Amell appearing at the Warner Bros. booth. Here are just a few that we have our eyes on, and if you’re heading to SDCC, don’t forget to bring extra luggage for your own acquisitions.
