It’s that time of year again, folks. San Diego Comic Con is starting with its preview night Wednesday, July 19th in all of its glory. There will be plenty of things to do between then and the 23rd, including panels, autographs, merchandise, and meeting your favorite celebrities from literally every show there is. I’m not kidding. There are booths and panels for just about every major fandom. So if you’re one of the lucky chosen ones attending, you’ll just have to make a little room in that schedule to hit some of the San Diego Comic Con exclusive booths.
San Diego Comic Con is known for putting out some of the most coveted collectible items that are only available during their con, and with a limited availability. Some of the most expensive variant comic covers and Funko POP! figures are the rare San Diego exclusives. So where do you even start in trying to hunt down these hard to find items? We’ve got you covered.
Here’s a list of the top 10 San Diego Comic Con exclusive booths you need to check out if you’re going to the con:
Alex Ross Art
You’ve seen his art before, I’m sure. This comic con he has an exclusive 2017 hardcover sketchbook for a reasonable $30. You can also check out some of his prints and lithographs that are signed, anywhere from $100-200 if you’re a big fan.
This one is for the Sailor Moon fans! Bluefin has a $7 Bandai Shokugan Sailor Moon Mini Compact Case Pocket Watch that is a San Diego Comic Con exclusive. There’s also a pretty cool Pegasus message case for about $30.
Dark Horse Comics, Inc.
Entertainment Earth, Inc.
Not gonna lie, I expected a little bit more from Entertainment Earth, but they did have something that stood out to me. Spice up your office space with their San Diego Comic Con exclusive chair capes. Yea, that’s right. You can look like Batman or Superman all day for only $25.
Loot Crate, Inc.
Loot Crate only has one exclusive at their booth, but for Rick and Morty fans it is totally worth it. For $20 they’ve got a “Peace Among Worlds” Rick figure variant.
Monogram International Inc
Toynk Toys, LLC
I’m not much of a pin person myself, but I totally could become one with some of the designs Toynk Toys, LLC is bringing. Groot, Negan, Daryl Dixon, Westworld, you name it! They range anywhere from about $5-8 and cover a number of fandoms.
